Can a person heal himself with Reiki?

Q: Can a person heal himself with Reiki?

A: Yes. Reiki is excellent for self healing, and practitioners should do self healing every day. There are many reasons for this, and of course the first one is that Reiki is so beneficial. If one can use Reiki, one should receive daily self-healings. The flow of energy helps unblock any places in which the energy is slow-moving or stuck, and reduces stress, relieves pain, and helps your whole self function better. Think of self healing as a part of routine self care.

Secondly, Reiki practitioners tell their clients how beneficial Reiki is. Shouldn’t they do Reiki for themselves as well? Of course they should! Walk your talk and live your advice! You’ll benefit.

A healthier practitioner can be a better example and channel for others. Would you go to a doctor who didn’t take care of him or herself? Probably not!

Now it’s important to know that self healing isn’t enough. One should receive Reiki from another person fairly regularly to stay in top shape. When you give yourself Reiki, you are giving and receiving at the same time. When you receive Reiki from another, you only need to receive. It’s a little more powerful. But self healing is very important regardless.
