    Reiki for Carers 

    Give a thought to carers, and all the hard work that they do each and every day. Taking on the the stress and pressures of caring for and considering the health and well-being of others. Usually with very little time or consideration for their own well-being.

    In the past I have been very grateful to carers for their help and support when assisting with a relative that required care 24/7.  

    According to Cancer Research UK website  ‘A very small study in 2021 (42 people) gave reiki to people who were caring for a person with cancer. They had reiki once a week for 6 weeks. The study wanted to find out if reiki could lower stress levels in the carers. The authors concluded that the carers found caregiving less stressful after reiki.’  Reiki | Complementary and alternative therapy | Cancer Research UK

    If you know a carer consider recommending a Reiki session.

  2. Cancer Patients and Reiki

    Relaxing Supportive Reiki for those in need of a little extra TLC

    I have noticed within my Reiki practice an increasing number of clients are finding it beneficial to come to the clinic for Reiki sessions either as a survivor of cancer or because they are experiencing adverse side effects having received invasive cancer treatment such as chemotherapy. 

    Reiki can be given to cancer patients. Although, Reiki is not a cure, Reiki may help with emotional well-being and also be helpful in calming the mind and strengthening the energetic system supporting the body's natural immunity. Reiki may help with relaxation, sleep and clarity of thought. 

    Reiki is a complementary therapy and can be used alongside existing medication/treatment and I always recommend seeking guidance from your Doctor if you are undergoing treatment before having any complementary therapies.

    There are many articles about the potential benefits of Reiki for patients undergoing cancer treatment.  Check out the International Association of Reiki Professionals®  https://iarp.org/reiki-and-cancer-research/
