Reiki and insomnia: how Reiki can help you sleep better
If you suffer from insomnia or insomnia, Reiki can help you sleep better.
Isn’t it horrible when you stay up at night, tossing and turning with your mind racing? Can’t get comfortable, can’t relax and before you know it, it’s time to get up and you’re just as exhausted as when you went to bed? For many people, this is not just an occasional event, but a constant round of sleeplessness and exhaustion.
There are many reasons for insomnia, including dyspraxia, pain relievers, some antidepressants, and stress. If you have a medical condition, you should seek the advice of your doctor.
Imagine for a moment how you would feel if you could be totally relaxed when you went to bed, get a good eight to ten hours of sleep, and wake up the next morning feeling refreshed, energized, recharged, alert, and ready to take on the day.
Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Too good to be true?
Research has shown that one of the many benefits of Reiki is that it helps you sleep well. Studies of people recovering from heart attacks or undergoing cancer treatment indicate that Reiki helps them sleep better than those who have not received Reiki treatments.
If you’re simply someone who doesn’t sleep, most practitioners have anecdotal evidence that a course of Reiki treatments helps most people sleep better. Sometimes clients will say that they didn’t realize how bad their sleep was until they had a few Reiki treatments. Their sleep became deeper, they woke up less during the night and when they woke up they felt much more rested and better able to cope with life.
In fact, many people learn Reiki for precisely that reason: so they can treat themselves and improve their sleep habits. The other benefits of Reiki include stress release, anxiety relief, and help with meditation.
Reiki is an observable system only measurable in its effects. When a Reiki practitioner treats a client, he cannot tell What it works, it just works. Many practitioners will talk about universal life energy, prana, ki, or a variety of other things, but the truth is, we don’t know for sure. However, it is generally accepted to be harmless, even in traditional medicine, and is now becoming accepted as a valuable adjunct to allopathic treatment.
When you receive a Reiki treatment for insomnia or insomnia, you will usually have a good night’s sleep. When you have several Reiki treatments, you will probably begin to sleep better each night. When you learn Reiki for yourself and treat yourself every day, you will have the power to help you sleep well every night.
