My Trips to the Hospital

Hi, I'm Cari. When I was a teenager, my best friend Claire's mom got cancer. I started offering to take Deb (the mom) to the hospital for her treatments to help give the family a break. They had all been in and out of the hospital so much, and since I'm basically family to them, it was nice to support Deb and Claire. Not to mention, I was able to learn a lot about different medical topics just be listening and watching while waiting in the hospital. It was fascinating. To everyone's joy, after a long and hard two years, Deb finally beat cancer! I decided to start this blog as a memorial to all those who have struggled with health problems and as a resource to for anyone who needs to know more about hospitals and treatments.


How A Reiki Practitioner Can Put Your Body Into A Better State

Reiki is a treatment that has become one of the most popular forms of alternative medicine. First developed in Japan, reiki is designed to promote healing of the body and mind through positive energy flows. The treatment may be beneficial for people with certain medical or mental health conditions, as well as individuals who just want to feel more at ease in their own bodies. If you want to move into a better state of existence, an experienced reiki practitioner can offer you treatment that may have some positive effects.

How Reiki is Performed

As you rest your body on a massage table or in a comfortable chair while you remain fully clothed, the reiki practitioner will use their hands to apply gentle pressure to specific areas of your body, or the therapist may hover their hands over your body without making physical contact. The goal of reiki is to generate positive energy flow and elicit natural healing as the practitioner moves their hands over you. During your session, you may feel soothing heat-like sensations or energy flows in certain parts of your body. Essential oils with soothing aromas may also be used to enhance the reiki session further.

Headache Relief

If you suffer from frequent headaches, reiki may help alleviate the pain in your head by targeting the root cause. Headaches often result from stress, muscle tension, and shallow breathing patterns, and the soothing effects of this treatment may address these causes better for the best results.

Improved Sleep

Getting the proper amount of sleep in the most restful state possible may be achieved better through reiki. The deep relaxation and release of stress that reiki promotes can put your body and mind at greater ease so that you'll be able to fall asleep without feeling so physically tense and mentally stressed. 

Mental and Emotional Nourishment 

Seeing a reiki practitioner can be one of the best things to do for your mental and emotional health. Symptoms of anxiety, depression, and other mental health conditions may be lessened thanks to the positive energy flow that you should feel as you undergo your reiki session. Emotional trauma can be further alleviated by the comforting reiki therapy that the practitioner provides.

A Great Addition to Conventional Medical Treatments

Any responsible reiki practitioner will advise you to continue with your conventional medical treatments that you may need, but reiki therapy can be a great compliment to your care plan. You may notice better results with any medicines that you take or other treatments that your doctor prescribes if you continue to undergo reiki therapy as an addition. The increased relaxation and better state of mind that usually result from reiki therapy may help make the medical treatments more effective.

Reiki therapy has proven to be one of the best forms of alternative medicine for many people who have incorporated it into their lives. If you're interested in receiving this treatment, a trained reiki practitioner can personalize a session for you so that you'll enjoy the maximum benefits of reiki.
