There are many causes of back pain, and lower back pain specifically.
Sprains, pulled muscles, over exercising, over doing in general, bad posture, hip issues, stress etc. - all of these could lead to pain and muscle spasm.
Think of your skeleton from the feet up. Every bone is meant to be aligned, from heels to ankles, to knees to hips. The spine with its energy centres holds everything upright, even, balanced symmetrical. Hips should be squared, shoulders even, head held high as if from a single thread. Those of you who do Pilates or yoga may recognise the components of this alignment.
However we are not all perfect and we get out of balance, physically, mentally and spiritually.
And while you should always seek medical attention for serious injuries, Reiki healing can be a wonderful alternative or complement to traditional medicine.
Reiki re-balances our energy centres (also known as chakras). We absorb good and bad energies daily and depending on what is happening you may consciously or subconsciously holding on to negative energy which tends to block our energy centres.
For some people this can contribute to physical pain like back pain or other symptoms. I am one of those people yet didn't realise until I started my Reiki journey. I was astounded by the fact that my low back pain had vanished after my very first Reiki treatment.
Reiki is deeply relaxing and being in a relaxed state promotes self-healing.
It's certainly worth giving it a try.
