I have been a Reiki Master for about four years. A friend of one of my clients, who is almost 80 years old, stated that she had been suffering with the pain of shingles (with several outbreaks) for many years; she stated that she also has osteoporosis and arthritis. She came to me requesting a Reiki session, wondering if it would help with her unbearable shingle pain. The area of her shingles outbreak at that time was behind her right knee, but she had had a severe outbreak on her right chest and back several years earlier and still suffers the post-shingles pain there also. She told me that not one day goes by that she doesn’t have some kind of pain, and that she does not like to take any pain medications. During the session she pulled such energy through me that my hands and wrists became red hot! After the hour-long session, she stated that for the first time in a long time... she had “absolutely no pain ANYWHERE”. I spoke with her later and asked how she was doing. She stated that she continued to have “no pain for two weeks” following the session, and that the area of breakout subsided quickly. She told me that she shares her experience with Reiki with all her friends.
