Reiki may be beneficial to clients who are struggle with losing weight even pursuing a healthy eating and exercise plan due high stress level.
As a personal trainer in Dubai I’m keep seeing that obesity is a serious problem for people all across the world and particularly in the UAE. New residents of Dubai gain between 6 and 12 kilograms on average in their first year here due to poor eating habits, lack of exercise, lack of sleep that leads to high stress levels. When stress levels are high, the body releases adrenaline, cortisol and corticotrophin releasing hormone. If the stress continues, cortisol levels can remain high and may eventually cause an increase in appetite, as well as cravings for high-calorie “comfort” foods. High levels of cortisol may also make fat storage more likely. Fortunately, according to reports by respected doctors and clients alike, Reiki may have the power to aid in weight loss.
Some of the ways in which Reiki may help with weight loss are detailed below:
- Reiki improves balance and well-being
When clients undergo Reiki treatments, they often report feeling more balanced, both physically and emotionally. Clients who are actively trying to lose weight may be more likely to stick to their weight loss plans if their sense of balance is restored. In addition, they may experience fewer of the negative mental effects of carrying extra weight, such as depression.
One of the primary uses of Reiki involves the reduction of stress. Stress is a common problem experienced by a significant portion of the population. Because stress has been shown to increase cortisol levels and contribute to weight gain, it stands to reason that reducing stress could be beneficial for clients who are trying to lose weight.
- Reiki may improve sleep patterns
Reiki sessions may be helpful to clients who have gained some weight because they aren’t sleeping well. Because Reiki may reduce stress and contribute to relaxation, clients may be able to get better, more restful sleep after treatment. This may contribute to better hormonal balance and a more normal appetite, which will help to prevent further weight gain and facilitate weight loss.
Fear, anticipation and worry all contribute to the physical reactions the body experiences when hit with psychologically charged feelings. The fight-or-flight response kicks in, adrenalin rushes and blood pressure rises to prepare for action. Researchers at NCCAM report that Reiki therapy can reverse those psychological conditions by first helping to lower blood pressure and heart rate. Multiple Reiki sessions can effectively remove the original fears, also referred to as trait anxiety, to combat the initial responses.
