June 22, 2016

If you’ve never heard of Reiki and you’re a multiple sclerosis patient, this is definitely a post you’ll want to read. The Japanese healing technique is used for stress reduction as well as relaxation, it can also make you an overall happier and healthier person in the end.

Reiki not only treats the whole body of a person, but also the emotions, mind and spirit which creates feelings of relaxation, peace, security and wellbeing, things that are all very important for those with MS.

In 2002 The Multiple Sclerosis Society of Medway, Sittingbourne UK and GP, DR. Chong, consultant neurologist at Medway Hospital referred 13 patients to be treated with Reiki. Each patient was treated with Reiki once a week for 1.5 hours for 12 weeks, a variety of measuring devices were used to assess the effects of Reiki on a weekly basis prior to each session. At the beginning and end of the case study a questionnaire was completed by each patient.

A summary of the results from the 13 case studies are as follows:

90.2% Reduction of Lethargy
87% Reduction of Depression
78.7% Reduction of Cognitive Problems
75.3% Reduction of Motor Problems
73.5% Reduction of Pain
70.2% Reduction of Fatigue
69.1% Reduction of Urine Problems
62.8% Reduction of Bowel Problems
38% Reduction in Walking Time

As shown, the overall results are incredible. Participants said they became pain-free after only a few sessions. Reiki can also improve blood circulation and cleanse organs like the kidneys, arteries, spleen, gall bladder, lungs and heart. The spiritual healing process treats other symptoms of imbalance like stress related disorders, menopause, migraine and insomnia. Being able to gain control over these aspects of your health is tremendously helpful when juggling a disease like multiple sclerosis.

While it could improve your overall quality of life and help you live comfortably with your MS, Reiki classes are offered all around the country, try finding classes in your area here.
