Can Reiki assist with recovery following surgery?

Posted on August 10, 2018 at 2:00 PM
So, this is a question I am getting first hand information about as I go along. As you may have seen on my service page, and in the upcoming events page- I have not been in the office, nor do I plan to be until around 8/29. Hopefully by then, I will be back and ready to do Reiki Healing sessions and Reiki classes...as well as a few other things I am adding. So, this is where I am now. At home, recovering from intestinal bypass surgery and about to begin chemotherapy for a rectal tumor. I really thought about whether or not to post this- or to say nothing and go on as best I could keeping this to myself, family and a few close friends. But here is the thing- I am a Reiki Master Teacher, a healing facilitator......and what would be a better teaching/learning moment than this? I can just blog my progress as I go- I can include what is going on medically, but also, what is going on emotionally and all the things that go on with this. I have learned there are so many levels. So many little things about going through this that I never really thought about. The stress levels for example- I thought I was really good at meditating and relaxing and letting go. And I was. I will be again, but I am having to work at it right now. Something about going through surgery, and all the complications that seemed to follow in my case has changed things for me...and I am now working on getting back to a more grounded, more relaxed me. There is a constant uncomfortable feeling in my abdomen- Of course, they gave me pain med, and at first that helped. I am doing self Reiki every day now for the past 3-4 days- I know it seems weird, especially for me, right after surgery it really didn't occur to me to do a self Reiki for quite some time- and then at first, when it did- I didnt have the focus - so I would pick a spot that was bothering me the most and do Reiki in that area. My daughter has also been doing Reiki for me and it really does help relax me and relieves the pain and discomfort. The thing is, when the Reiki startes, I notice how tense my body is.....it's unbeliveably tense. And it takes quite some time with the Reiki to relax those tense muscles. I am also receiving Accupuncture from my miracle working friend Maria Mandarino at Spirit Point Accupuncture. This has helped so much with pain relief and also my sleep pattern. Since comming home from the hospital ( I was there for 2 weeks), I have had much difficulty sleeping through the night. I have to say, between the Reiki sessions both with my daughter and the self Reiki and the Accupuncture sessions, my sleeping pattern is improving and I can report at least a few nights of going to sleep and staying asleep. And the issues that are stressing me do not seem as large and unmanageble as they have been seeming. Because I am reminded that there is a reason for all of this to be happening and that I really need to let go and trust that I am exactly where I need to be at this exact moment. I am sure there will be frustrations and difficulties lying ahead- but I am equally sure that with the wonderful support I am experiencing from family and friends, that I will come through this a little bit wiser, and a little better equiped to facilitate healing in others who are going through their own recoveries.
