Reiki and Insomnia: How Reiki Can Help You Sleep Better

Reiki and Insomnia: How Reiki Can Help You Sleep Better

If you suffer from sleeplessness or insomnia, Reiki can help you sleep better.

Isn’t it awful when you lie awake at night, tossing and turning with your mind racing? You can’t get comfortable, you can’t relax and before you know it, it’s time to get up and you’re just as exhausted as you were when you went to bed? For many people, this is not just an occasional event, but a constant round of insomnia and exhaustion.

There are many reasons for sleeplessness, including dyspraxia, pain killers, some anti depressants and stress. If you suffer from a medical condition, you should seek advice from your doctor.

Imagine for a moment how you would feel if you could be totally relaxed when you went to bed, slept well for eight to ten hours and arose the next morning feeling fresh, energised, your batteries recharged, alert and ready to face the day.

Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? Too good to be true?

Research has shown that one of the many benefits of Reiki is that it aids restful sleep. Studies of people who are recovering from heart attacks or who are receiving treatment for cancer indicate that Reiki helps them sleep better than those who have not had Reiki treatments.

If you are simply someone who does not sleep, most practitioners have anecdotal evidence that a course of Reiki treatments helps most people sleep better. Sometimes clients will say that they hadn’t realised how badly they slept until they had had some Reiki treatments. Their sleep became deeper, they woke up less during the night and when they woke up they felt so much more rested and better able to cope with life.

In fact, many people learn Reiki for just that reason: so that they can self treat and improve their sleeping habits. The other benefits of Reiki include stress release, relief from anxiety and help to meditate.

Reiki is an observable system only measurable in its effects. When a Reiki practitioner treats a client, they can’t tell you how it works, just that it does. Many practitioners will talk about universal life energy, prana, ki or a variety of other things, but the truth is that we don’t know for definite. However, it is generally accepted to be harmless, even by mainstream medicine, and is now beginning to be accepted as a worthwhile complement to allopathic treatment.

When you have a Reiki treatment for sleeplessness or insomnia, you will usually sleep well that night. When you have several Reiki treatments you will probably begin to sleep better every night. When you learn Reiki for yourself and self treat every day, you will have the power to help yourself sleep well every night.
