Benefits of Reiki Practice for Nurses

by | Jun 14, 2015 | 7 comments

Over the past several weeks, I have been sharing blog posts and videos about Reiki Practice. In this first video of an upcoming two-part video series, I speak to some of the self-care benefits Reiki Practice has gifted me.

As you heard, for me, Reiki has helped me in the following ways:

  • I am less reactive and much more able to go with the natural flow of life;
  • I tend to view each experience with an eye for opportunity;
  • I feel more connected to myself, my sense of support, and people around me.

Reiki Practice can benefit our nursing careers since it is a modality that we can add to our self-care tool-kit. Reiki takes little to no time and is very convenient. You can practice Reiki anywhere, any time. In next week’s video, I will go into more details of the benefits of blending Reiki with nursing practice.

If you’ve experienced Reiki, what benefits have you received? If not, what would you like to gain and/or let go of? I’d love to hear from you so thank you for leaving your comment below.

    Hi Elizabeth,
    Can you share some thoughts about how Reiki could help a nurse with a disability? Personally and professionally? It looks like a win-win opportunity to me!

      Hi Donna,

      Thanks for your comment. Reiki can help anyone, not just a person with disabilities. It is very unique to the individual and each person will receive benefits related to their own healing needs. Reiki is very balancing and can help us regain natural harmony, both personally and professionally. For people with physical needs, Reiki has been seen to reduce pain, increase energy, and help with side effects of medications. I am sorry I cannot answer in a more generic way; it’s just that Reiki is so unique to each person. I would suggest that the individual try it out. Each experience is different and they will find what they need from the practice.

      Thank you,
      Elizabeth
