Reiki for Stroke Patients

How Can Reiki Help?

Reiki may be helpful to stroke patients in a variety of ways. Some of the potential benefits of Reiki treatments for stroke patients include:

Reduced Anxiety and Stress

Strokes are a life-changing experience. In the aftermath of this distressing event, people often feel overwhelmed and anxious. Not only do they worry that they may experience another stroke in the future, but they also feel stressed and inpatient as they face months or even years of recovery. Reiki can reduce these negative feelings, allowing the client to relax and focus more energy on recovery.

Improved Balance of the Mind and Emotions

Stroke patients may experience strong emotions during recovery, both as a result of the trauma they have experienced, as well as any damage that was done to the brain’s limbic system during the stroke. Receiving regular Reiki treatments can help to balance the patient’s emotions and reduce mood swings.

Faster, More Complete Recovery

Reiki may boost the client’s immune system and natural ability to heal. This may speed a stroke patient’s recovery and improve the effectiveness of other treatments, such as physical therapy.

Decreased Sensations of Pain

Rehabilitation and physical therapy can be painful for stroke patients. Muscles can become sore and tired, causing patients to feel discouraged. Reiki may help to reduce the pain experienced by patients in therapy, which leads to improved patient comfort and better compliance with the physical therapist’s instructions.

Better Patient Outlook

As Reiki restores a client’s emotional balance, reduces stress and boosts the immune system, the patient’s outlook on his or her future may also improve.

Is Reiki Safe for Stroke Patients?

Reiki is a non-invasive treatment that involves no tissue manipulation, tools or pressure on the client’s body. Because it can be performed with only light touch or no physical contact at all, Reiki is generally considered safe for stroke patients, even immediately after the stroke has occurred. In fact, some Reiki practitioners believe that Reiki will be more effective for clients who have suffered strokes if they begin treatment as soon as possible after the event. Nonetheless, stroke patients should talk to their doctor before beginning Reiki treatments to discuss if they should or can be included in their healing plan.

Patient Stories

At the time of publication, there haven’t been many research studies conducted with the goal of exploring the relationship between Reiki and stroke patient recovery. However, many stroke patients who have undergone Reiki sessions have reported that they found the treatment helpful. For example, one stroke patient reported that, after a stroke left her paralyzed on the left side of her body, a single Reiki treatment administered in the hospital helped her to move the fingers on her left hand for the first time since coming to the emergency room. The patient was impressed with the results of the treatment, so she continued Reiki sessions after returning home. She believes that these sessions, along with traditional rehab, led to a complete physical recovery.

Another stroke patient reported that Reiki was a helpful addition to her treatment regimen even years after her stroke. Prior to beginning Reiki sessions, the patient had participated in many other types of therapy, but she had never fully recovered from the effects of her stroke. After participating in only a few Reiki sessions, the patient reported feeling more balanced, energized and coordinated than she had since the event occurred.

Reiki and Stroke Prevention

In addition to helping stroke patients recover, Reiki may also be helpful in preventing strokes among people who are at high risk for developing blood clots. According to the CDC, the blood clots that cause strokes are more likely to occur among patients with heart disease, high cholesterol or diabetes. Because Reiki promotes the body’s own ability to heal itself, it may aid in the treatment of some of the conditions that can lead to a stroke. Furthermore, since high blood pressure is another known contributor to the development of strokes, Reiki may also help prevent this condition by reducing stress levels and lowering a client’s blood pressure.

Cancer and Reiki

How can Reiki help cancer patients

Reiki, a stress reduction and relaxation technique, has become a subject of curiosity for cancer patients everywhere. Studies and anecdotal evidence has shown that, in addition to promoting relaxation among patients, Reiki can also be used to encourage healing and provide other benefits. In fact, some studies have even explored the effect of Reiki on patients who are undergoing cancer treatment concurrently. These studies have found that, although Reiki is not a substitute for other cancer treatments, it may enhance these treatments and offer a number of benefits to patients as they deal with the symptoms and stresses of cancer.

People who practice Reiki understand that pain and illness in the body are exemplified by blocked energy pathways. The goal of Reiki treatments is to strengthen the flow of energy through these blocked or disturbed pathways, thus decreasing pain and enhancing the body’s natural ability to fight illnesses and heal itself.

For cancer patients, Reiki may be able to help reduce pain associated with the progression of the disease. It can also reduce some of the uncomfortable symptoms patients commonly experience during cancer treatment, such as anxiety, weakness and nausea. Furthermore, Reiki can also improve the patient’s emotional health and outlook, which may increase the patient’s ability and willingness to comply with physician’s instructions and adhere to treatment protocols.

Visit to the old age home

A group of us went to an old age home this weekend and gave the elderly, their children and the caregivers an afternoon of pampering and healing.

They received foot massages from varies people, including our very own reflexologist, Lizanne.

We also scanned their bodies for problems and gave some healing.

They received head massages and many more. Even their nails got clipped and painted.

Cake and tea can never be left out of course 🙂

If you are in the Pretoria, Centurion area and your old age home is interested, please contact us.

No charge, in case I need to mention this.

Essential oils take 22 seconds to reach the brain.

Due to the this, it takes only about 2.5 hrs to be out of the system, therefore you must apply oils every 2-3 hrs to work.

How to Use Aromatherapy for Optimized Health and Well-Being

How to Use Aromatherapy for Optimized Health and Well-Being

It’s no secret that scent can have a powerful effect on your life. Just a hint of a particular aroma can conjure memories—both good and bad.  It can even have a physical effect on you, depending on what you associate with that aroma.

It’s why cultures for centuries have used the sense of smell as a pathway to encourage health and healing. They recognized the relationship between the nose and scent as a way to help unify the physical, psychological, and spiritual aspects of ourselves.

Aromatherapy is the art of using naturally extracted aromatic oils from plants and is often associated with alternative medicine. While the scientific evidence is lacking regarding the physical healing properties of essential oils, there is increasing evidence of aromatherapy’s mood-altering effects. This is due to the olfactory system’s primary pathway involving the amygdala, which is part of the limbic system and is linked to emotions and memories. It’s no wonder scent can invoke such powerful feelings.

According to Ayurveda and many cultures around the world, the mind and body do not operate independently; they are in constant concert with one another. It would make sense that if one’s state of mind is uplifted with the use of aromatherapy, our body would respond likewise by shifting its trajectory towards improved functioning, too.

Sometimes we need to go back to our roots and rediscover the effects of time-tested techniques such as the use of aroma as a complement for healthy living.

If you’re feeling like you could use some extra help to improve overall well-being, the aromatic path might be for you. Here are some tips on how to incorporate aromatherapy into your life.

What is energy healing?

What is Energy Healing?
Holistic Energetic Healing addresses the body, mind and spirit as an integrated unit, rather than treating any of these levels separately.

Holistic Energetic Healing zooms right into the core of the problem shifting the energetic patterns that keep physical symptoms, destructive emotions, life-depleting habits and negative thought forms in place.

Just as we have a physical body that needs support to stay healthy and fit, we also have energetic bodies that need the same. Freeing yourself from unwanted thoughts and emotions unleashes an extreme amount of energy which can then be used toward accomplishing your goals, dreams and wishes.

Current research shows that 90 to 95% of all disease is caused by stress. What manifests as a physical ailment is often deeply rooted at the emotional or spiritual level. Energy healing addresses these root causes. Energy techniques get straight to the heart of stress based problems. They apply the latest insights from quantum physics to a holistic understanding of us as being composed of more than just flesh and blood.

A whole person is complete in body, mind and spirit.
