Stories of Rei-ki Healing from our Graduates


The essence of Rei-ki is pure, unconditional love


Helping Hands for Stroke Sufferers #1

by

Jackie Farrell, London, England

After Rei-ki 1 training with Barbara McGregor in London in 2001, I had the opportunity to offer rei-ki hands-on to a lady recovering from a stroke four years earlier,whilst I was on a holiday in Cyprus.

Since that time she had been confined to wheelchair, paralysed down one side and on daily painkillers. When I explained the benefits of rei-ki she was happy to receive some treatment and, after a short session as we sat around the swimming pool, she observed that she could feel some warm sensations in the paralysed side, where she had no feeling for four years.

After a full body rei-ki treatment the next day whilst her husband was present, the energy started to flow and she felt slight warmth and tingling in the areas where I was putting my hands. Then, suddenly, one of the fingers which she had been unable to move since the stroke, jerked visibly! She took no further painkillers for the rest of her holiday, nor for a week or more after her return to England.

I have had many other extraordinary healing opportunities with rei-ki since that time.
