My husband woke one morning feeling uncomfortable in his back. He has had kidney stones years ago and his current discomfort reminded him of past kidney stones. As the day wore on he became more uncomfortable. The next day he was in pain and asked if I wouldn't help him with the pain. I facilitated Reiki to his kidney area for about fifteen minutes. Every bit of the pain ceased. It scared him! He knew he had a kidney stone and he should feel pain. He went to the doctor and was diagnosed with a kidney stone of 5mm. That is very large, too large to pass. The doctor was amazed that he had no pain. The doctor said he should be doubled over. They had to put in a stint because the surgery would be a week away and the stone was blocking the urethra. The pain did not return during the week he had to wait.
