Reiki During Pregnancy: How Effective It Is?March 27, 2018 / byHealthier Societies / Categories : Lifestyle
Reiki, a type of energy therapy, is an ideal remedy for the aches and pains associated with pregnancy. It can provide drug-free relief that is safe for the mother and the baby.
Pregnancy is one of the most physically challenging times a woman can go through. The major changes that her body goes through during the nine-month gestation period can cause symptoms, such as nausea, swollen ankles, difficulty breathing, and backache. Medication isn’t usually advised in pregnancy unless there is no other option. A Reiki healing course offers a non-drug alternative to medication.
Reiki is a therapy wherein the practitioner or trained family member channels energy to various parts of the body. It can be done ‘hands-on’ or just by hovering the hands over the area to be treated. Heat and/or touch relieves discomfort and enhances the sense of well-being. Reiki is easy to learn and attending a Reiki course is a great bonding experience for couples. It can also be self-administered at home as many times as required.
Reiki for Caesarean Pain
Studies showed that women who are admitted to a hospital for a caesarean delivery have significantly less post-surgical pain when they use Reiki. When reiki healing is applied to the incision for 15 minutes after the operation, new moms don’t need as much analgesia. Other than lowering the intensity of the pain, it reduces the breathing rate and anxiety levels.
Reiki for Babies and Children
Reiki also has numerous benefits for babies and children. It reduces stress and pain in premature or sick babies and can help new parents conquer colic, reflux, and poor sleep patterns in their infants. Like massage therapy, Reiki soothes, promotes feel-good hormones, and relieves stress. It can be used to comfort babies and children when they are tired or need to undergo a painful medical procedure.
Reiki is an alternative approach that can ease pain and stress without the use of medication, making it suitable for everyone. Try it today to enjoy the many benefits.
