Using Reiki to Heal Addictions

Can Reiki heal & cure addictions?



Can Reiki cure addiction to eating, drinking alcohol, smoking, watching TV, chewing tobacco, taking drugs, etc? The answer is that Reiki can help speed up the recovery process when used in conjunction with other treatment methods. There have been cases where Reiki practitioners have naturally given up minor addictions as they progressed in Reiki. But there individuals were not intending to use Reiki to treat their addiction. That was not the focus at all. They just wanted to learn Reiki for spiritual growth or some other purpose. But as they continue their daily Reiki self treatment they felt less and less attachment to their addiction.

Some Reiki Masters feel instead of using Reiki for addiction treatment we should learn Reiki to clean, balance and energize the chakras and grow spiritually. As a by product there will be many accomplishments for the Reiki practitioner including becoming free from addiction food, sex, sleep, nicotine, etc.


The reason Reiki heals addictions automatically is that when you practice Reiki daily, you de-stress your body, mind and spirit. You feel centered, in control and full of energy all day long. You are able to deal with the challenges and demands of life more effectively. You start focusing on the important goals of your life. When you focus on health, on spiritual growth, on your job and responsibilities you naturally have less and less time for addictions.

Another way Reiki can help with addiction is in dealing with withdrawal symptoms. Just the gentle healing hands of Reiki can make headaches, pains, etc. disappear in minutes by bringing an energy balance in your body. Even if you just learn Reiki Level 1 it can go a long way in stopping the downward spiral of addiction. It will make the person mentally strong and increase his or her will power.

Reiki Principles

Daily recitation of the Reiki principles will make your self talk positive and make you more self aware. This self awareness helps you catch any negative thought that arises in your mind during the day and lets you release it and replace it with positive thoughts. This can speed up the recovery considerably.


One of the best way to help yourself is by helping others. Reiki can heal addictions faster when you give Reiki treatment to others. To start with if you have not taken Reiki first Degree, you can do so and start giving Reiki to your loved ones, friends and extended family members. This will help you socialize more and get your focus on others.

Continue to take any medication that is prescribed by the physician. Stay in touch with your Reiki Master. Keep learning. Ask question. Keep him updated about your progress. Attend all Reiki events. Take the Reiki second degree training. Practice Reiki every morning and evening. This will help you in multiple ways.
