Having trouble sleeping? Everyone’s been there. You toss and turn all night, desperately trying to get a good night’s rest but instead you find yourself stuck in exhaustion-filled limbo. You feel like you’ve tried everything: meditation, over the counter sleep aids, snuggling with your pet – yet nothing seems to be working for an uninterrupted slumber. But what if we told you there was another method of improving your quality of sleep? Enter Reiki: the centuries-old healing practice that could give the deep rest you have been searching for. Taking care of our bodies starts with getting enough restorative sleep each and every night—so why not give reiki a try and see how it can help reignite a feeling of ease and comfort back into bedtime so that entering dreamland feels effortless again?

Reiki is a form of energy healing that utilizes the hands to transmit life force energy, or ‘ki’, from one person (the practitioner) to another. Reiki works on all levels—physical, mental and emotional—allowing for improved overall wellbeing in many areas of life. The practice has been known to help support the body’s natural healing processes and increase relaxation. These two reasons alone make reiki a great potential tool for getting better sleep.

Though physical relaxation is key to a peaceful night’s sleep, the mental aspect of reiki can be extremely helpful as well. Reiki techniques help clear the mind, allowing for easier access to your inner being and an increased ability to let go of stressful thoughts that often keep us up at night. By providing space in our minds and offering an opportunity to reconnect with ourselves, we can open up more energy pathways that allow for deeper sleep.

• Rest your hands on your temples and take a few deep breaths. Feel the energy radiating from your hands as you breathe in and out.

• Place your hands gently on your chest and feel the comfort of the warmth that radiates from them. Visualize a soothing lavender color filling up your entire body, allowing for further relaxation before sleep.
