How Reiki Reduces Hypertension

Many people deal with high blood pressure on a daily basis. High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, can come from different factors in our lives. Stress is one of the main causes of hypertension which makes it harder to get under control. 

Hypertension is a “Silent Killer”

More and more people are experiencing problems with high blood pressure because of the stressful lives they lead. High BP is a silent killer, because it causes many health problems such as heart disease, kidney disease, and others. If it isn’t handled properly, hypertension can cause your major organs to shut down. 

Hypertension occurs when your blood pushes against the walls of your arteries. The more your blood pushes, the higher your blood pressure rises. Some people can have this problem for years before they notice the effects of the symptoms. 

Reiki Sessions Can Reduce Hypertension

There are several factors that cause an energy imbalance in the body. The main cause is usually stress. Reiki techniques use gentle touching on the energy centers of the body. This promotes healing throughout the entire body and helps realign the chakras. It can be used as a complimentary healing process.

Research shows that Reiki can be used alongside other health therapies to treat illnesses. You’ll need to adhere to various treatments, health check-ups, and lifestyle changes to maintain a consistent BP. You’ll also have to get a reduction in cardiovascular risks and other major problems associated with high Blood Pressure. Reiki is a great treatment, which can be used as a complimentary healing process. 

Reiki techniques have proven very effective in managing hypertension in these ways:

1. Relaxes The Body

Stress and anxiety raise blood pressure. Reiki healing can reduce those feelings and indirectly lower blood pressure. Studies have shown that after this therapy, that subjects showed a reduction of stress, lower blood pressure, lower cortisol levels, and galvanic skin response (GSR). 

2. Helps You Sleep Better

High blood pressure and poor sleep are connected. According to studies, people with chronic insomnia are at greater risk for high blood pressure. Reiki sessions can lead to better sleep, therefore, potentially reducing blood pressure indirectly. 

3. Reduces Sensation of Pain

Sometimes, high blood pressure is caused by pain. In this case, Reiki sessions help to reduce a person’s perception of pain. When you are physically feeling better, it reduces stress levels.

4. Restores Strength and Immunity

Regular Reiki sessions can impact the nervous system because it balances your chakras. It involves light touching to affected areas of the body and stimulates the energy levels to get a balance in the body. It is a natural way of healing, which restores all energy imbalances of the body, diminishes pain, provokes healthy status, prevents ailments, strengthens immunity and treats sickness. When energy is restored in your body, it allows your body to heal itself.  

It’s very difficult to keep your blood pressure low in stressful situations. These techniques help with that. During a session, you feel relaxed and calm. It’s important to remember that you won’t experience recovery after one session. You may need a few sessions before you notice a difference. 

Are There Any Side Effects?

Unlike some medications, there are no harmful side effects of Reiki. Some people may experience quicker recovery times than others. Reiki can offer a relaxing experience that will slow your blood pressure down. 

Reiki doesn’t take the place of your prescribed medication. However, it is a wonderful, natural solution to controlling your blood pressure.

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
