Reiki for Weight Loss – How a Reiki session can help you loose weight


Reiki (pronounced Ray Key) is a precise and powerful form of energy healing, where the hands are placed lightly above or just touching the body similar to “laying on of hands”. During the Reiki session the practitioner is balancing and aligning the subtle energies within your body. The intention is to create a feeling of deep relaxation and inner peace to help speed up healing, reduce pain and decrease other painful symptoms. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances.

Reiki can help promote weight loss by helping you experience a sense of overall wellness, a healthier body, calmer emotions and a more peaceful mind. Reiki is very effective to help you reach balance and maintain your perfect weight. Many people notice lower stress levels, less tensions and a deeper and more peaceful nights sleep after receiving Reiki. Reiki, when combined with daily exercise and mindful eating can help assist with weight loss and bring about lasting results.

Reiki is not a fast-fix but a lasting solution to healing and raising the quality of your life. Reiki energy goes to the deepest levels of your being, where illness and disease have their origin, so that symptoms can disappear when the cause is removed.The main focus of a Reiki session is on any painful area or problem area of the body, as well as the endocrine system. A basic Reiki session covers all the points of the glandular system, which in turn control the hormones of the body. The endocrine system influences just about every cell, organ and the healthy functioning of your body and mind. The endocrine system plays a significant role in regulating mood, growth and development, tissue formation and metabolism. The foundations of the endocrine system are the hormones and glands. The hormones are the body’s chemical messengers and they transfer information between cells. The endocrine system releases more than 20 major hormones directly into the bloodstream where they are transported to various cells in other parts of your body.

Cortisol, which is secreted by the adrenal glands, has been called the “stress hormone”. This hormone is also responsible for providing you with energy, and also stimulates the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. Research also shows how chronic long-term stress and excess cortisol can be the cause of stubborn belly fat in woman. If you are heavy around the abdominal area and lead a stressful life, accompanied by feeling overwhelmed and over-burdened then you may benefit from learning ways to control cortisol levels by reducing stress and allowing more time for deep relaxation and self-care. It may be time for you to schedule a Reiki session.

Maintaining a healthy weight is not just about what you eat or getting the right nutrition. It is also about emotional and psychological fulfillment. In the United States approximately 127 million people are overweight and healthy life-styles need to be adopted. Sustaining a healthy weight and reducing stress levels is vital to your well-being and quality of life as without the correct balance of food, exercise and rest, research shows that you can clog your arteries, strain your heart, decrease your immune functioning, exacerbate your nerves, or develop a lethargic attitude to life.

With regular Reiki sessions, this universal life force energy can help stabilize your appetite and help you become more attuned to what your body needs in order to be healthy and vibrant. The Reiki energy can help strengthen the digestive system, balance your emotions and therefore food cravings, help you develop self-esteem and better eating habits, and illuminate food allergies. Reiki can also help with eating disorders such as Bulimia and Anorexia Nervosa. Reiki is a nurturing and healing energy that provides physical nourishment.

Reiki can be a wonderful aid in weight loss, helping you to step back from a stressful day and re-evaluate your priorities and values. Reiki can help you get in touch with your own needs and provide you with a safe and quiet place to let go of the layers of burdens and weight that you have been carrying around. It may take several sessions to achieve results, but with continued effort, you will begin to see a healthier and happier you.


“You have everything you need:
A miraculous body, a phenomenal brain,
and a vast and powerful subconscious mind.
Now it's just a matter of focusing them 
in the right direction.”
