Withdrawal from chemical dependency is extremely stressful, both physically and emotionally. Symptoms include muscle pain, bone aches, headaches, vomiting, the shakes, diarrhea, cravings, sleep disorders, loss of appetite and extreme moodiness. I quickly discovered that Reiki was very helpful in relieving the physical symptoms, and in calming the body and mind.
New clients are often understandably reluctant to participate in the Reiki session, as they usually have trust issues. However, within a half an hour the calming effect of Reiki greatly reduced or eliminated their shakes. Furthermore, once the shakes stop, oftentimes they did not return. I would then continue to administer Reiki, focusing my consciousness on the client’s sense of calmness, peace and safety. Once the body felt safe and supported, it seemed to release the sense of panic and trauma that accompanies withdrawal symptoms.
Early Recovery Solution Without The Need For More Drugs Or Alcohol
Those in early recovery will often stay clean for several days, only to fall back into active addiction. Low levels of energy are considered to be one of the motivating factors of this relapse, especially for those suffering from depression or other mental health disorders. With Reiki therapy, co-occuring mental health disorders can be addressed simultaneously with substance abuse, improving both conditions at the same time.
Are Reiki Treatment Sessions Painless?
Reiki sessions can be continued for as long as a person needs them, and not only are they completely painless, but they can be performed remotely as well. It is a treatment method that is extensively growing in popularity. Recognition of its effectiveness has led hospice facilities, nursing homes, and other healthcare providers to accept the benefits of Reiki and offer sessions for multiple purposes, including pain management and various types of mental health issues.
Are you looking for a way to overcome your addiction issues? Have you already been to rehab and even though you know all of the recovery tools, you just can’t seem to live a life without drugs and alcohol? No matter what phase of development you currently are in, creating a life not centered around drugs and alcohol is possible.
Past trauma issues, mental health illnesses, relational issues, loneliness, loss of pleasure, inability to speak about how you feel … all of these factors are core to who you are. These struggles must be addressed and overcome, but that doesn’t mean you have to fight them with no energy. Reiki can be your winning weapon. You can use the energy to move forward in life instead of focusing on the past.
