The Balancing Power of Prenatal Reiki

TIP : The Balancing Power of Prenatal Reiki by Rosalyn Acosta

Reiki (pronounced ray-key) is a Japanese technique for stress reduction, relaxation, and healing. As the practitioner, I channel the reiki energy through my hands and it flows into your body in a non-invasive, gentle manner. The Reiki energy activates the natural healing processes and clears your body of any physical and emotional blockages. Typically, even after one session, you will feel deep relaxation, calmness, and a greater sense of harmony.

Prenatal reiki helps expectant moms to drop deeper into a state of balance. During a reiki session, the reiki energy is initiated at specific targeted regions of the body. Reiki clears all energy blockages and treats the body, mind, and spirit as a whole.

Here are three regions of the body and how reiki can help address different aspects pertinent to pregnancy :

1st/Root Chakra: Located at the base of the spine (at the coccyx), this chakra pertains to survival and grounding and is the foundation of emotional and mental health. It is connected to the immune system, rectrum, feet, legs/bones, and the base of the spine. By sending reiki to this chakra, it can help alleviate common physical dysfunctions that may arise during pregnancy such as lower back pain, sciatica, varicose veins, and depression. A healthy root chakra, strengthens your sense of grounding, eases stress, and connectedness to the natural world.

2nd/Sacral Chakra: Located in the lower abdomen to navel area, this chakra is connected to the pelvis, hip area, bladder, large intestine, appendix, and sexual organs. Reiki energy can help alleviate pelvic and lower back pain, ob/gyn problems, sciatica, and urinary problems. Energizing this chakra can strengthen personal identity, bolster healthy psychological boundaries, and abate fears of loss of power and control. As the “partnership” chakra, not only is this embraced by the procreative energy to create children but also to bring creative ideas into form.

7th/Crown Chakra: Located at the top of the head, this chakra is connected to spirituality, is the entry point for human life-force energy (known as chi or prana) which is distributed throughout the body and other six chakras. The crown influences the the skin, central nervous, and muscular systems. By maintaining a clear 7th chakra, it helps you to have faith in the Divine, live in the present moment, and trust in the inner guidance of life. Sending reiki energy to this area can also help with focus and breathing, both essential skills throughout pregnancy and in labor.

Reiki is a powerful tool for maintaining overall harmony and can help expecting mothers to be open to the fullest expression of love and trust during the sacred time of pregnancy. To learn more visit my website. Mention “Jane Austin Yoga” and receive a 20% discount off your first session.
