Reiki and Cancer
Find our how this gentle energy healing system can help lessen your pain, calm your anxiety, and offset symptoms of treatment.
According to the American Cancer Society, “There are many individual reports about Reiki’s power to increase well being and refresh the spirit. Some cancer patients undergoing active treatment have reported increased well being, reduced pain, and reduced nausea and vomiting after Reiki sessions. One small controlled pilot study found that Reiki was linked with reduced self-report of pain in patients with advanced cancer….” (www.cancer.org)
A recent study at the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC found that patients most bothersome symptoms decreased by 50% after only one Reiki treatment, and did not return to pretreatment levels during a 2 day follow up. (www.fortherecordmag.com)
A Reiki Master’s Family Story of Reiki and Cancer
Two years ago my dad was diagnosed with stage 3 prostate cancer. Our family was shocked and scared. My sisters and I are all Reiki Masters, so we began Reiki treatments immediately. His doctor began hormone therapy. He responded very quickly to treatment, and now, two years later, he is still responding well to treatment, feels great, and receives Reiki once a week.
If that was not enough, last May my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Our family was, once again, shocked and scared. Again we turned to Reiki. She had to have a singe mastectomy, a second surgery to remove more lymph nodes, and chemotherapy. We administered Reiki before and after both surgeries. She healed fast, with very few complications. We also gave her many treatments during chemo. She handled the chemo very well. She was able to eat normally, had very little trouble with nausea, and was able to get back to her normal life within a few days after chemo. Reiki also really helped with the aches and pains that she experienced from chemo. She even took a big trip to Arizona a week after a chemo treatment. Now my mom is done with treatment and is doing just fine. She is feeling very positive about the future, and is even growing her hair back! We are all so grateful for Reiki, and the positive light that it brought to such a dark situation.
Healing Hands Reiki and Massage is currently accepting new Reiki clients. Because of the work that we have done with both of our parents and their cancers, plus working on friends with cancer, we feel that we have a special understanding of cancer patients. We take appointments and walk ins to our clinic on Saturdays, but we also realize that many who are undergoing chemo, radiation, or healing from surgery are unable to go out. For that reason, we are making ourselves available to do house calls in the evenings during the week. We can make house calls to the following areas: Idaho Falls, Rigby, Rexburg, and St Anthony. We will provide a consultation and first treatment free of charge.
