How Can Reiki Help?
Reduction of stress
High stress levels often lead to blood sugar imbalances. Reiki may help to lower stress levels, which could help to lower the client’s blood sugar as well.
Poor sleep habits may exacerbate the symptoms of diabetes. Reiki combats this problem by creating a relaxed state thus improving the quality of sleep.
Alleviation of depression
Reiki may improve the mood of the client and relieve the symptoms of depression. With a better outlook on life, the client is more likely to make healthy decisions and adhere to the doctor’s instructions regarding the management of his or her symptoms. In addition, elevation of the mood may aid the body as it tries to maintain normal blood sugar levels on its own.
Reduced pain sensations
People with diabetes that has progressed often experience pain related to neuropathy. Reiki treatments may help to reduce pain sensitivity, providing clients with relief from these uncomfortable symptoms.
Reiki is non-invasive and causes virtually no side effects, making it a safe choice for any individual with diabetes.
