Anxiety is the body’s response to a perceived threat. The definition is deliberately broad because we all experience anxiety differently. But when we break it down, even if the cause – the perceived threat – is not real, the experience of anxiety is very real. It can cause much pain and suffering, affecting people on all levels; having an impact on the wellbeing of a person’s mental, emotional, physical, even social, sexual and spiritual life. Due to the unique nature of each person’s experience, the management of anxiety takes time because it depends on what is causing it. In this article, I discuss the management of my client experiences of anxiety using Reiki.
