OK -- I know you all don't know me - I'm pretty open minded - but this was beyond belief
I'm also under a lot of stress --- shoulders, neck etc. -- The tension since making my MVD appt. has been huge.... raised my clonazapam dose!
I volunteer at a Hospice House and saw that there were free Reiki sessions for volunteers and staff -- I thought this was a gentle massage.
I explained to the lady that I've had soooo much stress in my body that I'm gonna end up in a fetal position stuck that way : )
She said some stuff about the practice but I just wanted to chill, relax, and escape my pre-MVD stress. I didn't care what she did to me at that point.
I meant to wear a pain patch as I do about 12 hours a day since lowering trileptal- but forgot it cause I slept late and had no strikes yet in early afternoon
She started by barely touching my forehead with very hot hands -- Indian flute playing in the background, me starting to relax on the table --- she moves to points down my body, belly, arms, calves, feet
She warned me that I could feel anything from joy to crying - never know what is released.
After she did my feet, and went back to my forehead, I felt a cramping shooting pain in my little toe and the outside of my foot -- I winced but kept my eyes closed -- I was trying to stay relaxed, but this wasn't a foot cramp or anything I have felt before--- something was electrically - like TN shooting out my foot!!! I asked if that was normal -- and she said ther is no normal for Reiki outcomes. She invited me to her studio to come once more before MVD.
That was Wed. at 2 I have been pain free until 2am Sunday --- except for 4 little jolts earlier today. I know I'm not cured -- I know it will come back -- It was not religious -- or I would not have done it....
How can this BE? I know I should be just grateful - and I emailed her -- but I always am curious as to why some things happen.....
