How Does Reiki Work?
The principle that all beings are composed of a living, moving energy forms the basis of Reiki. By tapping into our spiritual side and locating chakras, we may regenerate or shift this energy. Reiki encourages relaxation and reduces tension and anxiety through gentle touch. Reiki practitioners use their hands to deliver energy to your body in order to increase the flow and balance of your energy and promote healing.
A person’s cells actively seek out a frequency of calm, love, and pleasure when their body is in “autonomic regulation,” according to research which is aided by reiki. When your dog or cat loses their equilibrium or becomes badly exhausted over time by persistent stressors, like you or their surroundings at home, they become emotionally and physically unwell due to the changes in the vibrational frequency of the cells within their body.
