Reiki & Pain

At one point in time, all of us experience pain. From tooth ache and back pain to headaches or chronic pain...
Just as I finished my Reiki workshop I had to go and have my wisdom tooth pulled. My Reiki teacher told me that I could use Reiki to diminish the pain and speed up the recovery. She also told me that I could send Reiki into the future to the time when I will be needing it and that it will help.
Well, I was skeptical but decided to try it - I didn't have anything to lose. A few days before the surgery - I sent Reiki to wait for me. I was surprised by the effects. A few hours after I lost my tooth, I didn't have any pain... I loved it.
But there are other stories, too. Some of the hospitals are starting to use volunteer Reiki practitioners to give Reiki to cancer patients while in chemotherapy. The patients are reporting immediate relief from pain, nausea and other side effects of chemotherapy. St.Charles Hospital in Bend is one of the leading hospitals in Oregon using Reiki treatments for cancer patients. Here in Portland, through partnership with Northwest Reiki Association and Northwest Cancer Specialists there are six clinics providing Reiki sessions with cancer patients while in treatment.
It is amazing that we have something so powerful to help us! Something that doesn't have bad side effects and that doesn't interact with other medicines. It is totally safe. I am so thankful for Reiki as a way to improve the quality of life for myself and others.

  1. Nice post. I recently became a Reiki Master Teacher and appreciate your sharing this information. I don't think many of us realize the value we have for affecting our lives and other lives for good by using our energy and thoughts. You are a beautiful example of sharing.
