Can Reiki Therapy Help with Eating Disorders?

Did you know that Reiki therapy can be used as an alternative treatment for eating disorders? Reiki is a Japanese energy healing practice that uses the power of touch to create mental, emotional, and spiritual healing.

Welcome to Recovered Now. As a certified reiki practitioner and recovery coach, I’ve been through relatable experiences that allow me to help you feel understood and supported.

Keep reading to learn more about what Reiki is, how it could benefit you, and what a session with me would look like.

What Is Reiki Therapy?

Reiki touch therapy is a healing practice that uses touch to stimulate your body’s natural healing abilities. It allows any stuck energy to begin flowing freely again within your body.

A trained Reiki master uses gentle hand direct or indirect movements to guide energy through your body to promote self-healing.

According to a survey by the National Institutes of Health, over 1.2 million adults in the US have received a type of energy healing like Reiki therapy.

Reiki Therapy for Eating Disorders

Reiki therapy is often used as an alternative treatment for mental health conditions like anxiety, depression, and stress.

It can also be used to treat an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, or binge eating. This is because disordered eating is often linked to additional emotional problems, which could benefit from the use of Reiki therapy.

Alternative forms of treatment like Reiki play a valuable role in eating disorder treatment, due to the challenging and non-linear nature of healing and recovery.

Studies on Reiki have shown that the positive benefits can enhance overall wellbeing and self-confidence and create a sense of calm and inner peace that is often missing when experiencing health issues.

Reiki Sessions: What to Expect

My Reiki therapy sessions are remote 1-hour sessions within the comfort of your home. Prior to your session, we would have a 15-minute phone call to make sure you understand the treatment and to answer any of your questions.

As I start the treatment, you would be lying down fully clothed, while I gently place my hands on or just above your body. You may feel physical sensations such as tingling, heat, or coolness, and this is completely normal.

For some people, the session may feel emotional, although not for everyone. For most people, a feeling of immediate stress release and relaxation is common.

As your wellness coach, the goal is to create a positive energetic shift.
