Breaking the Cycle of PTSD with Reiki

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) can be a challenging condition, but Reiki offers a gentle and supportive approach to healing. Here are some ways Reiki can help when PTSD is diagnosed:

  1. Calming the Spirit:
    • Reiki calms and stills the spirit of the person.
    • It promotes relaxation from the outside in, reminding the body how it feels to be calm again.
    • Ultimately, Reiki promotes inner peace and calm.
  2. Balancing Energy:
    • A Reiki session focuses on promoting balance and harmony within the body’s energy system.
    • By channeling the flow of energy through gentle touch or non-contact techniques, a certified Reiki practitioner helps patients restore their emotional equilibrium.
  3. Reducing Symptoms:
    • Reiki can help reduce the intensity of flashbacks, nightmares, negative loop thinking and intrusive thoughts associated with PTSD.
    • It may also help to reduce the physical symptoms such as muscle tension and headaches.
  4. Self-Care Practices:
    • Individuals can practice Reiki on themselves by placing their hands on specific areas of their body for healing.
    • Focusing on breathwork, meditation and getting in touch with their inner child, Reiki can be part of a self-healing program for wellness.

Reiki is a complementary approach that works alongside traditional medicine and therapy. It is to be noted that after a concussion or brain trauma, permission from medical staff is required before any Osteopathy or Reiki work can be undertaken given the complexity of the injury.

Reiki provides an additional layer of support and promotes overall well-being for all ages dealing with PTSD. 🕊️
