Manage Your Weight With Reiki

In addressing issues of weight gain, it is important to take into consideration the underlying reasons of weight gain, besides just the food you may be eating. One of the underlying reasons that affects weight is the amount of stress in you life. Stess can lead to overeating as well as emotional eating. Think about when you are upset; do you tend to overeat, perhaps finishing off an entire bag of chips after a particularly stressful day at work. Or maybe you eat unhealthy "comfort" foods to excess.

Including Reiki energy healing treatments in conjunction with your weight loss efforts can give your body what it needs so that weight loss becomes easier.

So how is it that Reiki energy healing can help you manage your weight?

One of the reasons that Reiki is so beneficial for weight loss is because Reiki treatments are inherently balancing and deeply relaxing. If you have never experienced Reiki, imagine, if you would, that feeling right before you drift off to sleep. Your breathing begins to slow down and your muscles begin to relax. You are not quite "here," but you are still present. It is a blissful and restorative place to be for mind, body and spirit.

I consider Reiki to be an "intuitive" form of energy healing. As a receiver, all you need to do is simply "Be." Sessions require that you "do" nothing. The energy goes to where it is needed and it addresses the emotional, spiritual and physical aspects of your being.

On the other end of the spectrum is stress. When you are under stress, you tend to make unhealthy food choices and often overeat. Additionally, your body is in the "flight or fight" mode and this undue stress also causes your body to secrete excess cortisol. Cortisol is a hormone that has been linked to belly fat; Studies have shown that if you tend to store your fat in your belly, as opposed to your hips, you have a higher risk of developing cardiac related diseases, like heart attacks and strokes.

When you are in a relaxed state and in balance, stress melts away. You tend to make better decisions because you are not being driven by anxiety or stress. You can manage your triggers better and intuitively make better choices for your health and wellness.

With regular Reiki treatments, you can experience an overall feeling of well-being, mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.
