Many people deal with high blood pressure on a daily basis. High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, can come from different factors in our lives. Stress is one of the main causes of hypertension which makes it harder to get under control. 

Hypertension is a “Silent Killer”

More and more people are experiencing problems with high blood pressure because of the stressful lives they lead. High BP is a silent killer, because it causes many health problems such as heart disease, kidney disease, and others. If it isn’t handled properly, hypertension can cause your major organs to shut down. 

Hypertension occurs when your blood pushes against the walls of your arteries. The more your blood pushes, the higher your blood pressure rises. Some people can have this problem for years before they notice the effects of the symptoms. 

Reiki Sessions Can Reduce Hypertension

There are several factors that cause an energy imbalance in the body. The main cause is usually stress. Reiki techniques use gentle touching on the energy centers of the body. This promotes healing throughout the entire body and helps realign the chakras. It can be used as a complimentary healing process.

Research shows that Reiki can be used alongside other health therapies to treat illnesses. You’ll need to adhere to various treatments, health check-ups, and lifestyle changes to maintain a consistent BP. You’ll also have to get a reduction in cardiovascular risks and other major problems associated with high Blood Pressure. Reiki is a great treatment, which can be used as a complimentary healing process. 

Reiki techniques have proven very effective in managing hypertension in these ways:

1. Relaxes The Body

Stress and anxiety raise blood pressure. Reiki healing can reduce those feelings and indirectly lower blood pressure. Studies have shown that after this therapy, that subjects showed a reduction of stress, lower blood pressure, lower cortisol levels, and galvanic skin response (GSR). 

2. Helps You Sleep Better

High blood pressure and poor sleep are connected. According to studies, people with chronic insomnia are at greater risk for high blood pressure. Reiki sessions can lead to better sleep, therefore, potentially reducing blood pressure indirectly. 

3. Reduces Sensation of Pain

Sometimes, high blood pressure is caused by pain. In this case, Reiki sessions help to reduce a person’s perception of pain. When you are physically feeling better, it reduces stress levels.

4. Restores Strength and Immunity

Regular Reiki sessions can impact the nervous system because it balances your chakras. It involves light touching to affected areas of the body and stimulates the energy levels to get a balance in the body. It is a natural way of healing, which restores all energy imbalances of the body, diminishes pain, provokes healthy status, prevents ailments, strengthens immunity and treats sickness. When energy is restored in your body, it allows your body to heal itself.  

It’s very difficult to keep your blood pressure low in stressful situations. These techniques help with that. During a session, you feel relaxed and calm. It’s important to remember that you won’t experience recovery after one session. You may need a few sessions before you notice a difference. 

Are There Any Side Effects?

Unlike some medications, there are no harmful side effects of Reiki. Some people may experience quicker recovery times than others. Reiki can offer a relaxing experience that will slow your blood pressure down. 

Reiki doesn’t take the place of your prescribed medication. However, it is a wonderful, natural solution to controlling your blood pressure.
