Reiki has healing power which includes helping to build up your immune system. Studies* have shown that Reiki can improve your white blood cell count which boosts your immune system.

While there are no guarantees to prevent the flu, there are many things you can do to improve your chances of avoiding it. Getting the flu shot, good hand-washing, maintaining a good diet and using Reiki can help your odds of preventing the flu. See below for more tips on flu prevention.

In addition to helping your immune system, it also helps with relaxation and improves sleep all which lead to better health.

Reiki is a gentle healing technique that reduces stress, relieves pain, and facilitates healing, mentally, spiritually, and physically.

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine developed in 1922 by Japanese Buddhist Mikao Usui. Since originating in Japan, Reiki has been adapted into varying cultural traditions across the world. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a “universal energy” is allegedly transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing.

Aromatherapy with Essential Oils

Aromatherapy is a natural way to de-stress, unwind, relax, energize, balance and revitalize body, mind and spirit.  Pure essential oils are the essence of nature that are extracted from flowers, leaves, bark and berries.  It is through the sense of smell that the plant’s fragrant essence can impact emotions, memories, and suit every mood.  Try adding just a few drops in the tub for a relaxing bath or in a bowl of hot water to scent a room.

February is the perfect month to make your own home aromatherapy to fight off the cold and flu season. Here are two of my favorite oil mixes for the season.
