To be fair, I had a suspicion that the practitioner was interested in me romantically/sexually so I was on my guard during it and that probably
doesn't help with "energy flow" in the body
Many years ago when I worked on the oncology floor of a research hospital, one of the nurses there was in the middle of a research protocol on the use
of Reiki in treating pain and fatigue in cancer patients. The results were good enough that the study was published in a major peer reviewed medical
I'm a bit confused by your post though -- are you interested in being trained in Reiki or in receiving a treatment?
Yea im noticing A LOT of people that it works quite well with are Cancer patients. I wonder why or what it has to do with it helping that type moreso
then "the normal folk.
Im actually interested in both lol
I want to have it done to ME, i want to learn how TO DO IT, but im also curious as to the experiences that others had with it.
I do have to say....my girlfriend gets some pretty intense headaches....takes 3 pills lays down in the dark for hours and its still intense. We
started doing meditation together, and i massage her head...and i watched SOME reiki youtube vids real quick...i do the "basics" while i massage her
head, and for some reason it is truelly the only thing that helps her. But the other night in particular. I truelly synced my breath with hers...she
would breath in when i would massage clockwise, then breath out counter....i imagined energy in my hands and moving her energy...
And at the very end it was quite amazing...i was rubbing from her temple to the top of her hed imagining like the reiki youtube videos said. And it
felt like the same sensation when you have two magnets and you try to pull them apart. WHen i finally got to the tip of her head and i tried to
"PULL" my hands off, it quite literally was stuck. It actually took me to flex my muscles to PULL my arms away and i somewhat fell back, and
instantly she said WOW! WHAT WAS THAT?! and her head just felt better all the sudden. I get a surge of ephoria and somewhat tingly feeling. Im not
sure if this was reiki but THIS is quite honestly was sparked my question.
I know its not a sort of permanent healing solution. But when i do these massages for her, it usually lasts a week til she gets another headache. (it
runs in her family i suppose)
