5 Easy Self-Care Tips You Need After Every Reiki Treatment

During a Reiki treatment, toxins stored in the body’s tissues are often released. While the release of stored toxins is a good thing and will ultimately promote increased healing in the body, the side-effects can be unpleasant. When the toxins are released from tissue, they re-enter the body’s systems and need to be flushed away. As the body works to remove these toxins, some malady-like symptoms can arise. Headaches, nausea, aches, or general tiredness are common after a toxin-releasing Reiki session.

After a WellnessWrx approved Reiki treatment, it’s essential to listen to your body’s cues. Be mindful of how best to assist your body’s healing process; take time for yourself and administer some conscious self-care. Here are five easy and practical self-care tips that can aid your body after a Reiki treatment.

Drink Plenty of Water
