Even though this article is about the benefits of Reiki to new mothers, I must say that many start sessions during pregnancy. Reiki is instrumental in bringing physical and emotional balance to the person and the child. It also helps in building a strong and spiritual bond between the mother and the unborn baby. Research from USA Connecticut's Hartford Hospital stated that pregnant women who use Reiki regularly experience a significant reduction in stress and anxiety, in morning sickness, and dramatic improvement in the quality of sleep. Reiki proves to be beneficial not only to mothers-to-be but also to their unborn babies. Reiki in person or distance could be used during the labor stage to ease the stress of delivery. Reiki can improve a whole family's experience through pregnancy. Reiki eases physical and emotional toll in every stage of pregnancy, making the journey into motherhood more joyous and memorable.
After pregnancy, a young mother is expected to have less stress. On the contrary, new demands from both your body and your baby add more pressure to your life. A woman can experience what some called "baby blues." The most common symptoms of "baby blues" are mood swings, anxiety, sadness, irritability, crying, and trouble sleeping, to name a few. Reiki could give relief and assist in recovery. We must differentiate between "baby blues" and postpartum depression. I would strongly recommend any new mother experiencing such symptoms to visit and discuss that with her physician. Reiki is not a replacement for professional medical attention. In this case, Reiki can be utilized as a healing modality to complement professional medical care.
It is important to note that as a new mom, a woman should be aware that taking care of herself is as crucial as taking care of her newborn. It's perfectly okay to take that nap, long hot bath, or relax and watch a favorite show while the baby sleeps. Like everyone, the new mom needs "me time," too. Often a new mom feels isolated in their little mom-baby world, which could affect the mother's mental health. Reiki could help with balancing energy flow, chakras and feel grounded.
I am available for home visits and distance sessions. I often register powerful energy flow when mom is resting together with a baby for the session. Reiki can bring a fantastic result in bringing peace to your mind and body. It brings together their energy, boosts the bond between the mom and a baby, and strengthens the immune system. Some people feel a positive effect right after the first session. Usually, it takes two-three sessions to have a measurable impact on the person.
Here are just a few health benefits of Reiki:
· Reduction in stress level,
· Improvement in chronic health conditions,
· Pain management,
· Improvement in a relationship,
· Helps speedy recovery after surgery (especially a C-section),
· Boost the immune system,
· Complements conventional treatments
I can attest to this! I had a difficult pregnancy with twins, and feeling at a loss, I tried Reiki. It really helped take the edge off and make things more bearable! So, I had weekly sessions until the twins were born. They were 7 weeks early but bigger and healthier than the doctors anticipated. I had a c-section and increased risk for postpartum. I continued having weekly Reiki sessions, and I recovered from the c-section quickly, and I felt amazing! This experience is what made me want to learn Reiki. Rochelle Coffman
