reiki

Does anyone have or believe in reiki?

I`ve had it twice and didn't feel any benefit.

But yesterday I had it on my arms and hands.

Not unusual BUT........

on Tuesday a neuro told me my weakening hands is not down to my MS, but with leaning on my arms for years, in a wheelchair.

So I was offered reiki at the hospice I go to.

I told the therapist about my hands.....after the session, he asked me if I`d felt anything.. I said I had felt the warmth in his hands.

WELL......he said he felt a lot from me! He then said I had radiated a reiki like heat and that I could probably heal myself.
WOW! How a bout that then?

Been sewing and typing and they do seem stronger.

Oooooooo

    Hello @pollyanna1052   I believe in a lot of alternative therapies treatments .

    We in the Western World are beginning to understand certain therapies and alternative treatments used in certain cultures may be helping.

    Keen advocate of all Chinese, Indian medicine and therapies.

    I would think about if you can Tia Chi slow movements to music.

    Look on line something I do every morning helps mental health. Slow simple arms, and legs for ten minutes no sweating no problems.

    I do think if helps you go for it.

    Remember the mind is a healing tool and be aware of the possibilities of being open minded.

    I think if you consider this scenario have a good meal or listen to relaxing music do some meditation something I do a lot.

    Endorphins start flowing.

    When you enrol in APR programmes and anything around addiction, mindset and strength courage is important.

    Urges, desires and thoughts of relapse happen a lot cross your mind so by accessing alternative therapies so many.

    I went to the swimming baths did exercise in the pool standing up using my arms and legs to work out.

    With others.  Water helps support muscles and frame, bones.

    Have a look at local well being or resource centres speak to your carer I would have thought be helpful accessing looking at lifestyle courses.

    Health, wellbeing may I add many are free.

    Run by Community Health every thing health diet, nutrition.

    To meditation, aromatherapy a great one to look at.

    Used scent oils from herbs calming.

    I also used these in baths and massages.  Just something to think about.

    Learn a lot to dealing with every day health and situations.

    Please any questions ask me.

    Please take care.

    Hi

    Not reiki but I own a business designing and making healing jewellery. After studying gems for decades and working in the jewellery trade I learnt of the vibrations and frequency of gemstones and crystals, and they work. As a country I feel we are becoming more open minded about these things which have been used by others for centuries.
