Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing technique for stress reduction and promoting relaxation.


It is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and it is what causes us to be alive.


When our "life force energy” is low, we become vulnerable to sickness and stress, and when it is high, we are capable of reaching a more healthy and fulfilled life.


Reiki addresses the whole person, including body, emotions and mind and spirit, and creates relaxative feelings of peace and clarity. 


Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual and emotional healing and once learned and can become a great self-help tool.

Reiki for Backaches

In my years as a Reiki practitioner, I had many people come to me with backaches. In this fast paced, stressful life, we never realize when we began to have that first ache in the back, that over the years became a chronic pain that would never go away. And when we finally make our way to the orthopedic, after the usual xrays, and sometimes MRI’s we discover a disc problem, or problem in the lumbar region and before we know it we are scheduling visits to the chiropractor, physical therapist or even surgery. We are taking in prescription after prescription and yet the pain never goes away. It might for a short while and then it comes back. And we are stuck with this forever and make it a part of our existence and try to get on with life, in pain.


Louise Hay in her book, Heal your Body, which deals with the mental causes of the physical ailments writes that the causes of backache are many and most of them deal with the support of life. People who have always worried about, or are insecure about their finances and feel a lack of love have complained of back problems. The back problems are associated with the root chakra that is located in the base of the spine and is associated with survival issues. When the root chakra is imbalanced it leads to lack, and if we accept Hay’s causes, leads to stress and backache. This in turn will lead to irritation, fatigue and also anger. 


Reiki helps to heal the mental and emotional causes and in turn the physical. Reiki is a very intelligent, positive, spiritual energy and goes where it is needed most. When people come for a Reiki session the first
session allows the person to relax and calm down and that is when healing begins. Reiki energy sent to the root chakra and also on the heart chakra and solar plexus helps the person’s issues with survival, emotional lack and also abundance issues. Overtime the person starts releasing the pent up issues and allows healing to happen. This will have an impact on the backache. Reiki combined with prescriptions or other medical treatments helps even better, as it allows the healing to happen faster. Chronic back problems may need more than one session for the healing, but one never knows.


This article seeks to inform people how they can understand and identify the cause of their backache. Reiki sessions have healed people with back pain or other aches and pains tremendously as it helps release the emotional blocks and deep set issues that people have carried for a long time. Healing happens.
