I want to tell you what happened to my husband, Marty, a couple of months ago.We had to call 911 because he was clammy and not feeling well, and it turned out his heart was in a fib...which is a quivering or irregular heartbeat that can lead to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications.
Medicine didn't bring his heart back into his regular rhythm and doctors at Sharp Hospital scheduled him to be shocked at 4 pm on a Monday.
I was there at 11 in the morning, when a woman walked in and asked Marty if he wanted a Reiki treatment.
He didn't know about this energy healing technique, but he had the procedure and texted me at work a half hour later saying his heart was back to normal and he could go home!!!!
I had to find out more from a Reiki Master, and spoke with Andrea Mills, an ICU nurse at Sharp, who is also a Reiki Master and helps patients at Sharp and in her own practice,Healing Nurses.
This is from Mills' website: Healing Touch is a heart-centered, relaxing, nurturing energy therapy that helps to restore the body's energy system and promote balance. Energy imbalances and depletion can occur due to pain, stress, illness, injury, grief, medical conditions, surgery, or treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation.
Healing Touchworks with the human energy field to support your natural ability to heal. Gentle touch assists in balancing your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual well-being. It is safe for all ages and works in harmony with and may be integrated with standard medical care.
Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. The name is comprised of Rei and Ki. Rei means Universal, Spiritual Wisdom. Ki is Life Energy. By using light touch, the practitioner channels Reiki Energy to facilitate the bodies natural healing abilities.
