I’ve recently been going for acupuncture to try and help build my immune system, and it’s been great.  I am sleeping much better (and at normal times), and the 45 minutes I’m spending lying there in a recliner while the needles do their work is some of the most relaxing time I have every week.

After my initial couple of treatments, I decided that maybe I should incorporate Reiki into my acupuncture sessions, and the results have really been amazing.  Not sure how my immune system is doing, but I feel better than I’ve felt in a while.

An important part of the practice of Reiki is to give yourself treatments, something I know not all Reiki practitioners do.  The ideal thing to do is to treat yourself twice a day, morning and evening, but even just once a day or once every couple of days is really better than nothing.  I will admit, I don’t always get my two treatments in, because I usually end up sleeping as long as possible and don’t have time in the morning, but if I miss the morning I try to make it up at some point during the day when I’ve got a bit of time.  The nice thing about Reiki is that you carry it with you wherever you go, and can therefore do it anywhere.

Ideally during acupuncture I would like to give myself a full treatment, but that involves moving my arms more than the needles the acupuncturist puts in them allows, so I’ve taken to just placing my hands on my thighs, palm down, and giving myself Reiki that way for the duration of my 45 minute acupuncture session.

Today, I almost dozed off during the session, but caught myself and managed to stay awake (didn’t want to snore and wake others who were in the room with me!)…I was so relaxed that I just felt like I was melting into the recliner.  It was an absolutely beautiful feeling, and it is something I do with every acupuncture session now, to help increase the benefits of both.

If you are a Reiki practitioner who has acupuncture treatments and haven’t tried this, I would strongly suggest doing so.  If you are not a Reiki practitioner and would like to become one to treat yourself and others, please contact me!
