Be Skeptical–But Stay Open-Minded

Neurologists and researchers need to step back and look at Parkinson’s disease (PD) from another perspective. I believe that even though there may be a genetic  component as well as an environmental trigger, there is an emotional , energetic, and in some cases a psychological component that disconnects with the unity of mind and body.  

For myself, after altering my thought process, learning Reiki, reducing stress, and realizing certain changes that needed tweaking, I have found myself improving over the past several years. My medication has not changed in many years but I continue to get better!

I have just returned from a conference where I had the privilege to apply the amazing energy of Reiki on 8-10 PD patients or their care-partner.  The results were amazing.

Eyes that were tired and slightly glazed over were clearer and refreshed after just a 15 minute treatment.  Many of the participants were able to relax and even fall into a deep slumber. Tremors  subsided briefly and overtaxed muscles released. These are most of  the cases of what I experienced from  several  15 minute sessions.

Skeptical? So were most of them–but when many of them left, they admittedly stated that they felt better than before the brief Reiki session. Thirteen years ago, I too was a skeptic, but from my very first Reiki session, I realized the benefit of this healing art, for myself. My body glowed and mind quieted and calmed. The simple act of gentle touch made a world of difference. No pill. No surgery. A complimentary therapy gave me my life back and continues to improve my health.
