Acute and chronic conditions

Reiki can be of support during times of acute, short-term illness; it can also provide help and comfort for those coping with chronic health conditions. One or two sessions may be enough to provide relief, particularly with a new or acute symptom, whereas long-standing issues often require a series of treatments before the full beneficial effects take place. Due to the gentle and non-manipulative nature of Reiki healing, treatments are usually suitable for those with chronic pain, or low-energy problems; in fact it can be particularly soothing and comforting in such cases.
