Reflexology and Reiki Q & A

What Is Reflexology?

Reflexology is a field of alternative medicine that revolves around specific points on the feet and hands. By applying pressure to these areas, you can treat other parts of the body, including organs, spinal nerves, skeletal system, and more. The overall goal is to bring back balance to the body by promoting function of the circulatory system and increasing detoxification.

What Is Reiki?

Reiki is another field of alternative medicine that originated in Japan. It focuses on the energy that encompasses every living individual. In order to promote healing, a practitioner will channel energy from themselves and into the patient. This promotes cleansing and healing and can help a person tackle both emotional and physical distress.

What Are the Benefits of Reflexology?

Reflexology has a number of important health benefits in both the mental and physical aspects of the body. Perhaps the most well-known benefit is stress relief. Additional benefits include:

  • Back pain and neck pain relief
  • Improved circulation
  • Reduction of digestion issues
  • Improved memory
  • Reduction of anger and frustration
  • A boosted immune system

What Are the Benefits of Reiki?

Unsurprisingly, Reiki has a number of similar mental and physical benefits. They can include:

  • Less fear and frustration
  • Improved immunity and sleep
  • Pain relief for arthritis, migraines, and back pain
  • Reduction of cancer symptoms
  • Emotional clarity
  • Improved recovery after surgery or illness

How Do Reflexology and Reiki Work Together?

When paired together, reflexology and Reiki are a dynamic duo. Typically, reflexology is performed first, as it opens up the body and makes it more receptive to the energy flow received during Reiki. By pairing these two, you can experience an enhanced ability to heal and a nourished soul.
