Reiki is a self-help technique much like meditation which means “Universal Life Force” in Japanese. The technique is easy to learn and uses different hand positions to bring relaxation and balance to the body and mind.
The survey results show the remarkable resilience or Reiki users across many measures. For mental/emotional stability: 85% report less stress, 87% less anger and 84% more happiness. In terms of health: 80% suffered less colds/flu, 72% saw improvements in headaches/migraines, 69% less muscle cramp/pain.
66% reported improved sleep.
Elaine Hamilton Grundy, veteran Reiki teacher and co-ordinator for the survey says “The results are incredible and prove the efficacy of this simple self-help technique. In a time of such high uncertainty it is so important to take care of our mental and physical wellbeing, this survey shows Reiki can do both.”
“The secret is in the daily use – Reiki is very easy to do but it requires us to set time aside every day to be relaxed and quiet. A Reiki practice encourages a mindful reset to occur, which is what we need to be doing everyday.”
As short as half an hour a day produced improvements in overall wellness for 91% of respondents. When asked to describe the results of a Reiki self-practice the most common adjectives were “relaxed”, “peaceful” and “calm”.
The survey also reported equally good results for respondents who took online courses. This is of particular relevance to the growth of online Reiki alternatives since COVID-19.
The benefits are very quick and do not require years of practice. But over time these improvements deepen more significantly bringing lasting peace, contentment and happiness.
