Reiki and IBS

Do you have unpredictable and sometimes painful abdominal pain and bowel movements? Maybe you have constant bloating or can’t seem to hold much of anything down. Do you find yourself avoiding certain clothes, public places, restaurants, or new situations with friends and family due to toilet facilities being unfamiliar, or your symptoms being that spontaneous? You may be one in about 25 million people suffering with IBS in the US. It is one of the most common diseases, especially for women. One of the main causes of IBS is, unfortunately, stress – and a lot of it. April is Irritable Bowel Syndrome Awareness month, and we’ve got you covered –  Instead of dumping countless medicines into your body, and hiding from your best self and the world – there is another method to aiding IBS symptoms or even curing it once and for all. This method is called Reiki, a means of unblocking and rebalancing the energy flows within our bodies and spirit.

In the past few years, there have been many studies and analysis focused on how Reiki impacts us physically and mentally, even alongside traditional medicine and healthcare. In many places, Reiki is now being offered in hospital settings as another form of therapy and care for a wide array of ailments. A 2017 study revealed just how effective Reiki could be for the management of pain and chronic pain, finding that just two 24-minute Reiki sessions were enough to provide significant improvements in pain and anxiety, as well as heart rate and respiratory rate. This study, as well as many others like it, prove that Reiki can certainly decrease high stress levels, as well as physical pain, and reduce the symptoms of diseases that are stress-induced. Some more examples of which symptoms Reiki has been seen to improve:

  • Ease constipation and diarrhea, as well as reducing inflammation in many parts of the body, such as your intestines.
  • Reduce worry and anxiety associated to daily life with IBS, including social anxiety in unfamiliar places.
  • Supports and strengthens the body’s own healing mechanisms.
  • Can provide a boost of energy and relieve physical pain  

Our central nervous system is known to be in sync with our gut, often times referred to as our second brain. When we are stressed, our nervous system pumps our blood away from the gut and into our limbs, for the case of fighting or fleeing the danger nearby. When we are in a more calmed and peaceful state, our blood flows back into our organs providing oxygen and nutrients, promoting healthy digestion and more. With this in mind, we can confidently assess just how powerful Reiki can be, as it has the potential to have profound impacts on those looking for IBS relief by reducing and improving the symptoms that might be triggering IBS episodes.
