In 2009, one on my clients, AH, female, age 26, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. After one Reiki treatment she found relieve from the pain and numbness she had been feeling in her arms legs and back. Based on these positive results, I taught her how to treat herself on a daily basis. AH returned to work doing international travel with only occasional pain. This was a huge change in her life. I believe that it is important to empower people with the methods that will relieve them of chronic pain.
A number of my clients come to me when their doctors confirm that there is nothing they can do other than to treat them for pain. JR, female, age 55, had a torn retina in each eye affecting her ability to work.
Her eye surgeon said there was nothing he could do for her. She had been to a number of specialists. After 20 Reiki sessions focusing on her eyes with me, JR’s surgeon found no sign of a tear.
Relief for Caregivers
Caregivers often are in need of relief from stress and anxiety that comes as they provide for their loved ones. When my Dad’s health declined due to Parkinson disease, my mother’s emotional and physical well ness also declined due to the stress of caring for him. I take this to heart when working with my clients. For example, I was treating SL, a female, age 32, who was in a wheel chair with cerebral palsy and living with her mother BL, age 54. We were working together to improve her quality of life. BL assisted her daughter with daily chores. Caring for SL increased her mother’s stress. By teaching BL basic Reiki techniques, the mother lessened her stress and received the emotional healing she needed to continue her role as SL’s caregiver.
Relief for Stress
A number of my clients have felt an immediate relief of stress just from the day to day worries of life. JN, female, age 31, came to me with lower back pain. She was four months pregnant and dealing with a stressful work environment. It became evident that she was carrying this stress in her lower back which the Reiki was quickly able to relieve.
