I know a woman here with lyme who gets reiki I think regularly.
It is expensive though.
A have a friend whose husband is being trained so he can help her. It would be nice to have energy healing in the immediate family. Which you do come to think of it.. can you use your energy for yourself? Hoping so for Reiki but also thinking it is not the same.. like giving yourself a massage!
Yes, you absolutely can. I have experienced a lessening of various symptoms when I have put the time into it. The first experience I had was when I had a bad case of tendinitis. And Alan had a similar experience with a 20 yrs long case of cluster migraines. They've been gone for 15 yrs now.
Don't know about with Reiki as I am not a practitioner but ... this energy thing is less restricted than you realize.
And I know someone whose autonomic dysfunction began with a lightning strike. Also heart damage and off and on paralysis. Me, I think I'll give this one a pass.
On the other hand Dannion Brinkley (famed for his books on near death experiences) ended up with impressive psychic powers after his "near death" lightning strike. Course he also had heart damage and was half dead for a couple of years too.
