Stress as Dealt by Reiki

20 Jan

Benefits of Reiki with respect to Stress Management • Reiki can be used to directly help psychological or emotional problems such as stress, depression, anxiety, bereavement, panic attacks and specific emotional traumas. • Reiki offers a spiritual path, if you choose to pursue this direction and reconnects you to your true spiritual nature, enabling you to self-heal whenever you require healing. Reiki awakens your intuition and creates spiritual awareness at a rapid rate when used for self-healing on a daily basis. • It is recognized that stress plays a huge part in all of our daily lives and many people experience stress as a result of their lifestyle, working environment and life experiences. Reiki has a calming, relaxing effect and helps you to put your life in perspective, helping you to understand the bigger picture. • Reiki heightens any natural gifts you already have, particularly creative and artistic abilities. • Reiki helps you establish direction and purpose in life, fostering a greater comprehension of the universe and your place in the universe. • Many individuals, particularly in the West, lead toxic lifestyles. Reiki helps you in a very natural and organic way to make positive changes in your life, without them feeling troublesome or challenging. You will naturally be drawn and attracted to a lifestyle that is healthy and nourishing for you on every level. • Reiki boosts your immune system, helping your body to be stronger and in a state of balance and harmony. • Reiki gives you more clarity and focus, so decision-making becomes an easier and more instinctive process. • Interpersonal skills are enhanced, as Reiki helps you understand other people on a deeper level and this enables you to interact with them in the most appropriate and beneficial manner.

Reiki Autism & Your Child

Reiki Autism & Your Child

By

Korina Bejarano, CRMT

            Children with special needs, such as struggles with Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, Attention-Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), need help to regulate their energy levels – to help them even out and relax. Also, parents and siblings of these children are often overwhelmed, anxious and exhausted. You all deserve a break. So I’d like to propose a “pay it forward” option.

            I believe Reiki can really help every member of your family. Perhaps the best way is for at least one parent/caregiver – you, for instance – to become a Reiki II Practitioner. Then you can give Reiki treatments to every member of the family, including yourself, as often as needed or wanted.

You can easily incorporate Reiki into the day of your child without making it seem like a formal Reiki treatment.  Gently lead the child to the Reiki treatment room that you designate.  In theory, the child should feel relaxed enough that the treatment room should not disturb her.  Reiki could also be a way for the child to feel affinity towards the practitioner.

Give the child regular Reiki treatments.  If your child is not one to sit still, you should and can as I do arrange to work with them in your home.  At this age, an autistic child begins developing sensitivity to sounds, touch, and certain textures.  Over time, touch therapy also helps the child to become more accustomed to perceptible stimulus and aides in body awareness.

 If you have a Treatment session with me this is the format I utilize:

  • Prepare the child for his Reiki treatment. Have the child use the preparation time in an activity and environment he/she finds pleasing. While this may not be a traditional environment for generating tranquility, the child should be allowed to do whatever he/she wants in order to feel relaxed; and
  • Gently lead the child to where the Reiki treatment will take place. In theory, the child should feel relaxed enough that the treatment room should not disturb him/her. However, given the nature and level of autism, the child could always resist being taken to a strange place, so prepare to perform the Reiki treatment in an area where the child feels at ease; and
  • Draw out any negative energy that is in the autistic child’s body. Reiki practitioners debate how this can be done, but the simplest technique for beginners is to infuse the child with enough Reiki energy that the negative energy must exit the body; and
  • Concentrate on the use of the first eight Reiki hand positions in order to infuse the patient’s head with Reiki energy. This will improve the child’s brain function, free up the child’s problems with expressing herself and improve the child’s handling of her thoughts and emotions. These are all problems reflected by autism, and so Reiki treatment in that area should lead to a lessening of the symptoms; and
  • Focus on other Reiki treatment areas that may help lessen the symptoms of autism. These include the hips, thighs, ankles, knees, calves and shoulders. Concentrating on these areas will help the child deal with burdens, lack of inner strength and anxiety; and
  • Be prepared if the child experience any negative after-effects. They probably have several toxins pent up in their bodies, which will mean that the infusion of Reiki has left them feeling angry or depressed. Calm the upset child down if this happens, and make sure they drink several glasses of water to flush the toxins out of them; and
  • Provide the child regular Reiki treatments. Even though he/she may not understand what is being done to her, he/she may demonstrate a lessening of the autism symptoms. Work in tandem with the child’s parents and doctors to keep track of the child’s progress is always a must.

A child with autism, Asperger’s Disorder or Pervasive Developmental Disorder not otherwise specified may exhibit self-stimulatory behaviors either to increase stimulation or reduce stress. As the child becomes more and more comfortable, and as the energy begins to work, changes can be made in how the child receives Reiki.

Autistic children benefit from relaxation techniques and touch therapy. These could be administered to them through Reiki, a form of alternative medicine that works with the principle of transferring ki, or energy, from the palms of one person to facilitate the healing and wholeness of another. Here again are some of the guidelines to remember if you’re looking to use Reiki with autistic children.

Prepare a relaxing environment. The point here is to make sure that the autistic child is thoroughly relaxed and untroubled. It will depend on the child as to what type of environment will facilitate his relaxation; mostly it will entail arranging for a clean, spacious and quiet room with soothing music and subtle, non-distracting colors and displays. You could also let the child do activities that he/she wants. It’s also best that you facilitate the Reiki treatment in a room that the child is already fairly familiar with; that’s because autistic children have a tendency to feel disturbed in a room that they are newly-acquainted with.

Do the Reiki while the child is occupied. The child doesn’t need to lay down while receiving Reiki treatment; he could actually be playing a video game while you lay your hands upon regions of his body.

Though there are some controversies with regards to the effectiveness of Reiki as a technique for healing, at the very least it has value in that it promotes relaxation and touch therapy for the autistic child. Done regularly, the child could begin to anticipate such treatments and would learn to relax and calm himself as is called for in Reiki. Reiki could also be a way for the child to feel affinity towards the practitioner. As always, be sure to consult the child’s doctor to ensure that Reiki treatments are compatible with his overall treatment modes.

Reiki – Cancer and You

Reiki – Cancer and You

By

Korina Bejarano, CRMT

Reiki Master, Teacher, Healer & Provider of Holistic Health

Reiki is an ancient Japanese form of healing where practitioners transfer healing energy through light touch and positive healing intention.  Reiki is a powerful form of   healing touch, which assists in the healing process.  Since I am a Reiki touch-healing practitioner, whenever I do C-touch, I experience the warmth of giving Reiki to myself.  My experience with Reiki, Bio-electromagnetic therapy is one of Spiritual healing by providing a healing touch.  However, spiritual healing is not faith healing.

 Reiki, has steadily gained in popularity, particularly among nurses.  The calming effects from Reiki, massage, etc. help circulate healing energies within the body which in turn help circulate their blood and reduce fatigue.

According to the American Cancer Society, Reiki healing may help cancer related aftereffects from Chemotherapy, increase blood flow and healing time.. The study speaks to the effects of weekly Reiki and Healing Touch on pain, depression, fatigue, anxiety, and spiritual connection. Pain, mood disturbance and fatigue were improved by massage and healing touch Reiki lowered blood pressure, respiration rate, heart rate, pain, and total mood disturbance.

When used in conjunction with chemotherapy, they may reduce some side effects of treatment, including mouth sores, neuropathy, and diarrhea.  Reiki can assist individuals with cancer by supporting the well-being and helping to reduce side-effects of cancer treatment.

Cancer-related fatigue is one of the most common side effects of chemotherapy and radiation treatment.  I provide nutrition education and support to patients while addressing nutrition-related side effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatments.  Hormonal changes may occur as side effects of treatments, such as surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy.  Chemotherapy and radiation treatments may cause side effects which can directly impact nutritional status and overall well-being of the patient.  Reiki and it’s moderating effects on the side effects of chemotherapy are well documented.

Many cancer patients end treatment underweight.  The use of Reiki as a treatment  among cancer patients has increased in recent years, especially in cancer treatment centers.  Some mesothelioma cancer patients hail Reiki treatment as a considerable opponent against the looming threat of cancer.  Reiki classes teach cancer patients self healing and enable them to participate in their own treatment plan.  Reiki has been reported to help cancer patients with anxiety, fatigue, pain, and other common ailments associated with chemotherapy treatment.

Practitioners who treat cancer patients carefully avoid sensitive areas, such as surgery incisions, while providing gentle, relaxing therapy.  A study was done in 1,290 cancer patients who received massage therapy at MemorialSloan-KetteringCancerCenter that supported this consideration.

Reiki is also available to adult & pediatric cancer patients in group or private sessions. Korina’s Wellness provides these services in the San Diego area. Call Korina at (858) 945-7039 and either start your road to better health today.  Korina Bejarano is a Certified Reiki Master, and Teacher as well as provider of Holistic Health.  You can see all the information as to the American Cancers Society’s position on Reiki as well as other studies on her website www.korinaswellness.com.

STRESS MANAGEMENT AND REIKI

STRESS MANAGEMENT AND REIKI

By

Korina Bejarano

 Innovative Reiki stress management  is what I speak about today. Clearly, we Americans need help to reduce stress.  Obviously, we Americans need assistance coping with stress.  We definitely need to communicate better.  A whopping 44% of Americans state that their stress levels have risen during the past five years.  The reports say only 40% of Americans think their health is good or excellent.

To gain full relaxation, you need to totally surrender to the handling and touch of a professional Reiki provider.  Furthermore, the brain has a periodic need for a more pronounced activity on the right-hemisphere.  Tantrics believe that to grow as complete beings, blockages need clearing from both our physical and psychic systems.

Reiki and many other forms of energy healings are offered.  Reiki – -Healing with energy not drugs will let a whole new world emerge for you.

Korina’s Wellness located in Cardiff by the Sea (www.korinaswellness.com) offers you an opportunity to experience energy healing and stress relief benefit from all its potential.  Clients are treated in a relaxed, peaceful environment with energy healing that promotes balance of the mind, body, and spirit.  I also have energy treatments that help reconnect the mind-body-spirit using ancient Reiki techniques.  The crystalline sounds carry Reiki energy deep into the body to enhance the relaxation process.

Reiki Energy Medicine, is a relaxation technique and transformative experience.  When brought together, the word Reiki basically means life force energy guided by spirituality.  If this life force energy is down and low, we go through phases of illness, depression and stress.  Fission is energy that moves from the center outwards, driving the energy apart.

With energy you can create fission or fusion.  Because we had no education in relationships we use relationship energy to create fission and it drives us apart.  Become Aware of the Energy of Your Words, Thoughts, and Emotions.

Health and Wellness has also become the biggest area where employers are beginning to invest their time and money.  Korina’s Wellness offers personal wellness and spirituality coaching, Chakra Balancing, Reiki, Crystal Healing, Life Coach, Guided Meditation.  I am also a Certified Reiki Master and practice and teach Reiki and many other forms of energy healing offered.

If your life force energy is down and low, you’ll go through phases of illness, depression and stress.  Stress & tension is a normal part of life and usually comes from everyday occurrences in our hectic life style.  Two of the most common causes of stress in everyday personal life are self-doubt and shyness.  I specialize in Mindful Meditation,  Reiki, Stress Management Practices, and Spiritual Mentoring. (See: www.healingsandiego.com)

For many patients, in addition to reducing stress, their treatment technique has also accelerated the healing process in other areas of their life.  Receiving regular Reiki Treatment helps to work against the effects that Stress and Tension causes.

Reiki complements medical treatment and medication and may reduce negative side-effects.  Ask if the Reiki practitioner incorporates daily self-treatment and how Reiki has helped him/her in their own healing.  Reiki   is considered to be a holistic therapy because it addresses the mind, body and spirit.  Each of us holds a piece to the wellness puzzle, and it is together that we create a holistic picture.  Korina’s Wellness is a holistic wellness center focused on your path, your journey through life.

Learn how can Reiki restore and maintain your health.  Go to my website www.korinaswellness.com  where Reiki and many other forms of energy healings are offered.  Healing with energy not drugs, let a whole new world emerge for you.  Another method is crystal healing, where crystals or crystal bowls are used to create sounds of healing and relaxation.  It is a very refined, highly studied field of healing used by nearly 1/3 of the planet’s population.

This complementary healing technique is used by nurses, social workers, counselors and other highly compassion-centered jobs. Each stress management experience is unique.  Training and experience converge in a unique blend of state-of-the-art techniques in stress management, performance coaching and life skills enhancement.  With Reiki you get to experience the benefits of an ancient Eastern  art of healing.

You may also want to ask if the Reiki Practitioner has experience working with your particular issue.  Learn more about Reiki and its health benefits, then experience it.  Go to www.sandiegohealing.com which has an abundance of information as to Reiki its application to stress and other issues.  Come to this healing circle and experience Reiki healing for the physical and emotional experience in helping high-level executives avoid stagnation, reach their goals, and improve their quality of life.  Those who use Reiki experience themselves as more loveable, and have higher self-esteem.
