Pregnancy is a unique experience that comes with many transitions, changes, and challenges to the physical body. Being a mother of three children and going through each one of my pregnancies, I know first hand the unique effects pregnancy has on the physical body.
Reiki is a gentle way to bring back the positive energy, balance, and deep relaxation to the body, benefits that pregnant women need during these nine months. If you’re unfamiliar with the concept of Reiki- please go to About page click on Reiki
Reiki helps pregnant women manage the changes in their body, all while keeping them connected to their baby. Let’s take a deep look at how Reiki helps improve the pregnancy experience. Reiki is a great way to help pregnant women release pent up stress from pregnancy, and can assist them in becoming at peace with the physical, emotional, and mental changes that come with pregnancy.
Reiki during pregnancy focuses on helping expectant mothers connect with their bodies and their unborn child. The feeling of connection towards a baby may not come naturally sometimes. Connecting with your baby is an amazing experience. With the help of energy healing during the pregnancy Reiki process, your mind can feel relaxed and calm, allowing you to savor your pregnancy without fear, worry or anxiety.
Reiki Can Assist with the Ease of Pregnancy Symptoms
Pregnancy is not easy. It’s literally a life changing, life altering experience that literally puts a mother’s life on the line. Dealing with morning sickness, food aversions, exhaustion, and mood swings can take your focus out of your pregnancy and in the difficulties that come with it. And my mommy clients have shared that just when you think you’re getting the hang of it, your body changes again the following week and that in itself can be pretty stressful.
The art of Reiki allows you to gain back the peace and the calm. A Reiki session makes it possible for you to get in touch with your body and cope with the ever changing symptoms better. It helps with taking the lens out of the stress so you can further appreciate this beautiful, magical experience that’s happening inside you, allowing you to be more present, positive, and connected with your pregnancy.
Reiki Eases Stress and Worries
Dealing with the unknown can be scary, especially for pregnant women who are carrying the most precious being. There are a lot of worries in the minds of mothers. Worried about the baby’s growth, the baby’s development and their own health can make expectant moms feel like they’re always on the edge. With the help of Reiki during pregnancy, moms can release their pent up stress and worries. As they take the time to be mindful, they can find that assurance that everything will be okay.
Reiki Strengthens the Mother-Baby Bond
The healing that comes with Reiki is holistic and it envelopes an entire person, including the baby. Having a healing session with pregnant women, she has always expressed that she feels like her baby is responding to the treatment through their movements. Reiki gives way to moments where a mother can enjoy communicating with her baby without stress, worries, and physical pain.
Reiki Heals The Physical Pain and Changes Mom's To Be Look at Pregnancy
Reiki is an effective healing treatment that can help physical pains associated with pregnancy such as:
Lower back pain
High blood pressure
This allows mothers to have a different perspective about pregnancy. One that’s full of meaningful memories and not looking at it with physical challenges.
Reiki Prepares Mom For Childbirth
Reiki strengthens moms-to-be. One of the biggest benefits of Reiki during pregnancy is it gives the mother additional physical strength and emotional strength. With Reiki, moms can get a renewed understanding of their physical, and emotional challenges. Through Reiki, moms get more in tune with their body, making them feel in control. Reiki supports mothers-to-be so that mom feel empowered to face childbirth with more love, presence, and confidence.
As a Reiki practitioner my approach is gentle, hands-on or hands off techniques, laying my hands softly on specific areas of your body to start healing. Pregnant women interested in Reiki don’t have to worry about safety as Reiki is one of the rare forms of therapies that is 100% safe to receive and the treatment is gentle yet effective. A Session begins with the mom-to-be in her most comfortable position. No, you don’t have to lie on your back if it feels uncomfortable. You’re also not required to lie down on your face because it’s dangerous. A Pregnant client has the option to follow the position they’re most comfortable with, which is usually on their sides.
