Stories of Rei-ki Healing from our Graduates

The essence of Rei-ki is pure, unconditional love

Little Miracle after MS Diagnosis


Lisa O’Dwyer, Perth, Western Australia

Eight years ago I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis after several brief attacks. A year later a major attack led to a complete shutdown, affecting my eyesight, slurred speech, gait, and my entire left side. Christmas 1999 meant hospitalisation.

My father, Errol Leembruggen, is the Usui Reiki coordinator for W.A, so I have received rei-ki consistently, with constant encouragement to take the course myself. Eventually, in September 2004, I took the rei-ki training, and from that time my health has continued to improve. A year later I decided to try for a much wanted baby.

My little miracle, Riley, was born recently. With the help of rei-ki, including absent healing from his grandfather and friends, I had only two and a half hours labour, with no pain relief required - a stark contrast with the birth of my first child 10 years ago, when I had a hard 14 hour labour and a very distressed baby girl. It is wonderful to know that I am giving my very placid son rei-ki, every time I hold him in my arms.
