Complementary treatments, such as Reiki, have long been understood to support other medical treatments for a wide range of conditions. Long COVID is a new condition that, over the last couple of years, has shown to be debilitating in some cases.
Long COVID symptoms vary from patient to patient, so currently there is no one treatment that fits all. Some of the symptoms are physical, whereas others are more psychological.
The range of long covid symptoms are varied, but some have shown to include:
- Extreme tiredness
- Shortness of breath
- Heart palpitations
- Chest pain or tightness
- Problems with memory and concentration
Unfortunately, there is no true understanding of what causes Long COVID and there is no standard test that can be carried out to know if someone has Long COVID or not. As a result, treatments are not always straight forward and there is no single drug or treatment process that can be followed.
This is where reiki treatments can help.
How Reiki can help with Long COVID?
Reiki can be effective on many levels, from the spiritual and mental through to emotional and physical. As It’s a completely natural and holistic system there are no negative side effects, with the energy going directly to where the problem is in the mind or body. The Reiki energy effectively searches out the problem areas.
Reiki treatment sessions can help to support people with Long COVID by providing a relaxing and focussed therapy.
Each reiki therapy session will:
- Foster an enhanced sense of relaxation leading to a calmer breathing rhythm.
- Help to support mental wellbeing providing an improved ability to cope with the difficulties.
- Increase the peace of mind, helping to offer some pain relief from joints and muscles.
What happens in a Reiki treatment session?
Each Reiki treatment session will last for around one hour. The reiki therapy itself is a hands-on treatment. The person receiving the Reiki treatment stays fully clothed, as the energy can pass through whatever is being worn. Some find that their body temperature may fluctuate, particularly if there are a great deal of pent-up emotions that come up during a session.
The Reiki treatment consists of varying hand positions that are used throughout the session. No session is the same as every person is unique, but generally one works in the direction from head to feet.
