I just read a great article in Psychology Today about reiki as a treatment for women in all stages of breast cancer treatment. According to Reiki practitioner Raven Keyes,
Dr. Sheldon Marc Feldman, the Chief of Breast Surgery at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. Dr. Feldman is sending his patients to me, because he has witnessed firsthand the remarkable difference in outcome when a woman facing breast cancer receives Reiki as part of her treatment.
She even joins him in the Operating Room,
I give her Reiki all during her time in the OR, because it has been found that there is much less bleeding, blood pressure remains steady and healing is speedier when Reiki is added to the surgery procedures.
See, even though we don't know as yet how or why Reiki works, we know simply that it does!
