I’m so glad to have the opportunity to share this wonderful story of the transformative power of Reiki. I am a practicing occupational therapist and have a private Reiki practice in my spare time. Eighteen months ago, my neighbor’s 14-year-old son was badly hurt in a motorbike accident. He severely fractured his collarbone, so that it could not be surgically repaired. A 3.5-inch section of it had to be removed. Naturally, the orthopedic surgeon told him and his parents that it would never grow back and he would have a dysfunctional shoulder and arm for the rest of his life. I concurred with this from my experience as a therapist, but offered to do Reiki to speed up the healing of the incision and the general trauma. I gave him two treatments per week over six weeks. Just before his six week follow-up with the surgeon, he said "There’s something hard here (pointing to his incision). What do you think it is?" I said it was just scar tissue since that was all I thought it could be. He had a x-ray later that day, and the surgeon incredulously announced that he now had a new-collar bone! The doctor could think of no explanation for this. I was equally amazed, since I know that the average simple fracture takes six weeks just to mend itself.
I asked to see the "before" and "after" x-rays and they were indisputable. (I also saw the removed section of the original collarbone that the boy kept as a souvenir in his freezer.) Since then I have obtained copies of these x-rays and show them at all my classes and have presented them to various medical committees at the hospital, in support of Reiki. These x-rays have done a lot to validate to the medical profession, the effects of Reiki. Since my presentations, the local hospital (publicly funded, as all hospitals are in Canada) has agreed to let me start a six-month pilot project to provide Reiki on the palliative care unit.
I strongly urge Reiki practitioners to gather information such as x-rays, blood tests, etc., whenever they show significant changes after Reiki intervention. It will really help in making this form of treatment more believable to unbelievers.
