Why Reiki is now a mainstream tool in releasing stress; reducing chronic pain and improving quality of life11th

Reiki is one of the most effective and widely used complementary therapies and is offered alongside traditional interventions in hospitals, hospices, and private practices.

Safe, gentle and non-invasive, this complimentary healing technique can be used to treat a number of physical & mental ailments and imbalances with no contra-indications.

Most doctors now agree that treating the body, mind and spirit as a ‘WHOLE’ will release tension and anxiety and promote a sense of balance and well-being which allows the body to self-heal both physically and emotionally. At its heart, Reiki is very simple. All things are made up of energy and Reiki is a system of natural healing utilising this energy to nourish both body and spirit and to help to maintain balance

According to an article by Anthony Schifano on the National Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Association’s website (US), Reiki sessions can have a meaningful impact on those dealing with chronic long term pain and fatigue and have brought relief and helped individuals feel more balanced. He writes that patients who received Reiki treatment experienced “total relaxation, less tense muscles, and improvement in their range of motion.” One patient who suffered from fibromyalgia pain for years was able to stop taking pain-relieving medications after starting regular Reiki treatments”

Although a qualified Reiki practitioner can work with your GP he/she will not diagnose a medical problem for you.

Choosing a Reiki Master Practitioner


Choosing the right practitioner for you, is essential for the treatments to be as effective as possible. Your overall comfort and wellbeing are so important during your healing sessions and trust in your practitioner is an intrinsic part of the whole experience. So how do you choose a good practitioner?

Your Reiki practitioner should ideally belong to an accredited society or organisation. This organisation will have a Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice that members will have agreed to abide by.

Once you have chosen a Reiki Practitioner, it is advisable to make contact with them, asking them any questions you may have about Reiki itself. Do include asking them how long they have been a practitioner and how they carry out their treatments. http://bodhiwestsussex.co.uk/contact-us.php

What is the CNHC?

The Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) is a voluntary regulator of complementary healthcare practitioners. It was established with Department of Health funding and support and it’s key purpose is to protect the public by improving the regulation and registration of people who work in health and social care. It’s work includes:
• Reviewing the work of the regulators of health and care professionals
• Accrediting organisations that register practitioners in unregulated occupations
• Giving policy advice to Ministers and others and encouraging research to improve regulation

Why choose a CNHC registered Reiki practitioner?

It is important to choose a qualified practitioner who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of Reiki. By choosing practitioners registered with the CNHC you can be confident that they are properly trained, qualified and insured.

Choosing Reiki as a complimentary therapy has become an everyday occurrence for millions of people and the use of Reiki in hospitals, hospices and private practice has allowed this once ‘alternative’ therapy to become accepted as a mainstream tool playing an important part in  improving the quality of life for patients around the world.
