Reiki and Seasonal Allergies
Allergies are an overreaction of the immune system to an otherwise harmless substance.
In the case of seasonal allergies, you are reacting to pollens that do not pose a threat to your body. This reaction creates a continual state of ‘fight or flight’ in the body, weakening your immune system, increasing the risk of other infections or health problems and leaving you red and worn out. It can also impact your sleep, adding to your fatigue.
Reiki works to rebalance and calm your body, activating the parasympathetic nervous system, eliminating the state of ‘fight or flight’ and allowing healing to occur. It can be used to help symptoms and to release underlying emotional issues that trigger the allergic response.
With Reiki, there are two parts to treating your seasonal allergies, and they are most effective when you commit to a short course of treatments.
Controlling your symptoms
The first part is to assist in managing your symptoms. The practitioner will focus on the affected areas of your body, so in the case of seasonal allergies your head, face, throat and chest.
The focus is on bringing balance and relaxation, unblocking the energy in the affected areas, releasing sinus pain, headaches, and resolving itchy eyes, runny nose, sneezing and wheezing. It is not uncommon to initially feel a little worse after the treatment; however, this will shift within a day or two leaving you feeling better.
Reiki and Energy Healing also bring relaxation, allowing your body to rest and recuperate and improving your sleep. Many clients report feeling able to breathe more freely and that their sinuses and eyes are more comfortable following treatment.
Releasing underlying triggers
The second part involves addressing the underlying reasons for your allergies. Most of us, especially adults, carry a certain amount of emotional baggage; from our childhoods, from our parents and previous generations (genetic memory), and some say from past lives.
Releasing these emotional memories from your body will help to bring about long-lasting relief from your allergies. We cannot change what has happened in the past, but we can shift the way in which we react to these memories.
By allowing you to become less triggered and controlled by these previous issues you become more balanced, grounded, centred, relaxed which ultimately makes you less reactive to allergens and also to daily stressors in your life.
Reiki is not usually a complete cure for seasonal allergies, but they can assist your body to function in an optimal way. Following treatments clients will comment that they feel better in many ways, including their allergic reactions. Everyone can benefit from this type of healing so book now and enjoy enhanced health and well-being.
