I am often asked the question, does reiki help with chronic pain? I have gained experience to answer this question during my 20 years of providing reiki treatments to clients my London Reiki Treatment Centre. During this time reiki has certainly been proven to help with a wide range of chronic pain. Reiki can help back and neck pain through to post-operative pain and arthritis, to name but a few.
The causes of pain
There are many people today out there in this stressful world who suffer from terrible pain which can sometimes become chronic. Quite often there will be no specific diagnosis which can leave the person in some ways more frustrated because there is no medical label for it. It is often in these circumstances that people ask if reiki can help with relieving their pain.
In these non-specific cases it's normally the way a person holds themself which can contribute towards how healthy they are. A person who is going through emotional or mental anguish can not only present that in the way they "think", but also in the way that they hold themselves. Meaning that it comes out in some sort of physical format, for example the saying "she is a pain in the neck".
Some people with lower back pain can be associated with anger, tightness around the shoulders or pain and tightness around the throat, can be because the person is not speaking out about something important. Headaches have been known to be linked to worry and stress. If there has been severe trauma, the pain can be held in the muscles, organs and even at a cellular level.
Reiki is extremely effective in healing pain caused by emotional tension and psychological distress that over time has built up inside the body.
The most common type of chronic pain I encounter with my clients is lower back pain. As I have mentioned above, it can be very frustrating because the source of the pain is non-specific. Reiki helps the body release old and held onto issues which allows the body to relax and open up. In its place a new balance and calm takes over which can increase a person’s energy levels and minimises the pain.
If the person is suffering from severe pain and it has been chronic for sometime, then I would certainly recommend 3 or 4 Reiki treatments over a period of 2 to 3 weeks. These Reiki treatments then enable a good build up of the energies and the client actually gets to feel the benefits and improvements themselves. I find that most of my clients know in themselves when they want another Reiki treatment for whatever reason.
A client came to me not so long ago with a lower back pain that was non-specific and this is what he had to say "I heard about this Reiki clinic in Fulham SW6 and wanted to give it a try. I had had this reoccurring back pain for a while and it just was not going away. Georgiana was so welcoming but professional as well, and I immediately relaxed. I have to say that as I felt the warmth coming from her hands I could feel the pain in my back beginning to subside. By the end of the Reiki treatment my back felt much looser and the pain had gone".
Can reiki help with pain post-surgery?
I have also been asked if reiki can help with pain following a surgical procedure. I’m pleased to say that I helped with cases where, due to the stress of undergoing surgery, a client has found the anxiety both before and after to be quite debilitating. Following a series of reiki treatments before the surgery, I was able to help calm and relax my client, easing their worry.
Following their operation, I continued with the reiki sessions to help them deal with both the emotional and physical pain they were experiencing and supporting them with their recovery.
I was delighted to have received this message from a client who had recently visited me just before and after a surgical procedure: “In my opinion, Georgiana Monckton is an amazing, warm and caring woman who is full of empathy. She possesses extraordinary reiki abilities and powers that have really helped to heal my tangible injuries and repair the damaging effects of emotional and psychological trauma”.
