Healing Crisis


Reiki is a non-invasive healing modality that supports healing on all levels. It grounds the essential life force within your energy system and activates innate healing resources. This supports the healing of acute and chronic diseases such as depression, stress, addiction, fatigue and other symptoms of imbalance.

However, this stimulates a purification process and the flow of Reiki energy through the physical and subtle bodies encourages the release of emotional, physical and mental 'toxins'. It encourages the release of toxic buildup that may have been caused by trauma, injuries, poor health habits and pollutants. This release is generally very gentle and can pass with little notice. However, depending on what is being cleared the process can be more noticeable and uncomfortable and take a little longer to work through the energy system.


This is known as a 'Healing Crisis' and although uncomfortable is a necessary step where physical and emotional toxins may resurface so they can be integrated for true healing. As this occurs you may experience symptoms such as: flu like symptoms, coughing, joint aches, headache, sore throat and nausea. You may also find your sleeping patterns are affected. Repressed emotions such as anger, sadness and frustration may resurface as well as any suppressed memories that need to be released in order for the body to heal.

As uncomfortable and daunting as it is for these shadow aspects to resurface, it is an essential part of personal and spiritual growth. These old emotions are to be acknowledged and released along with limiting beliefs that no longer serve you. As these things are cleared you create space for higher levels of consciousness and instead of viewing these process as symptoms of illness they can instead be viewed as a sign of your progress.

It is also important to note that the healing energy of Reiki does not 'cause' this imbalance. The imbalance is already well established within you and the Reiki energy brings awareness and healing to those energies that you hold.
