Fibromyalgia and Reiki Healing
Whole Health Healing has been an evolution of sorts. The Whole Health Therapy journey started as many innovations do from the seeds of need. I was given a diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome in 1996. Frustrated, in pain, and feeling very stuck, I began searching for a means to manage my debilitating symptoms. When conventional medicine failed to alleviate my pain, fatigue, and depression, I began looking at alternative methods.
My first step on my life changing journey was taking a Reiki course. This was subsequently followed by study of a wide variety of Reiki variations and non-Reiki healing traditions. Through trial and error (and eventually an international study), I created Reiki for Fibromyalgia. This Reiki variation bundled together twelve healing frequencies from six Reiki traditions to manage pain and to promote whole health healing.
To complement Reiki for Fibromyalgia and to promote long term whole health balance, I began looking for supplementary resources. I was immediately drawn to Transpersonal Psychology in general and Transpersonal methods such as meditation, guided imagery, belief work, affirmations, afformations (an affirmation variation), journaling, and energy integrity training in particular. In fact, my Ph.D. in Transpersonal Psychology was based upon my Whole Health Therapy for Fibromyalgia therapy.
Whole Health Healing
Happily working with Fibromyalgia sufferers, I was somewhat taken aback by the next adaptation of my work. While working with my Fibromyalgia clients, I was often asked if I ever worked with people who didn’t suffer from Fibromyalgia. Inevitably, they would say that a spouse, aunt, friend, or neighbour had seen the positive changes in my client’s life and was wondering if maybe I could help them too.
Always up for a challenge, I began taking on these new clients. Interestingly, I found that Whole Health Therapy including Reiki sessions and Transpersonal methods such as meditation, guided imagery, belief work, affirmations, afformations (an affirmation variation), journaling, and energy integrity training were very effective for a wide variety of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual issues. It would seem that although our symptoms and life issues are unique, we are all healed by understanding and releasing the root cause of our pain and suffering. So began, whole health therapy.
