Reiki Roundup

This week's Reiki Roundup covers the past several weeks, so grab a cup of tea (or coffee) and sit down for a long read.

We begin in the United Kingdom, where 24-year-old singer Christopher Sands has been hiccupping persistently for the past 15 months. He's tried every folk cure that's been suggested, along with "hypnotherapy, yoga, reiki, herbal medicine and an oxygen chamber," The Daily Mail reports, but nothing has worked. Scans of his brain, chest, and abdomen have found nothing. Desperate, he's about to undergo surgery in hopes that will fix it. We wish him luck. Sands is far from the world hiccupping record, however: that belongs to a man who hiccupped for 68 years.

Also in the UK, we meet a fireman who not only rescues animals, but gives them Reiki treatments.

Next stop: Islamabad, Pakistan, where the Associated Press of Pakistan reports that a study is beginning to test the efficacy of Reiki given by practitioners who have been trained as well as initiated versus practitioners who have been trained, but not given initiations (also called attunements). The report doesn't say when the results are expected, but we'll be on the lookout for them.

From there we move on to the USA, where tax rebates are being sent to most taxpayers in an effort to stimulate the economy. One Rhode Island woman has decided exactly what to do with her rebate: "I'm going to be a Reiki master," says the headline in The Valley Breeze.

In Redmond, Washington, USA, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports on a school for animal massage where Reiki is also on the curriculum.

The Post-Crescent in Wisconsin features an interview with an former auditor who is now a Reiki practitioner and massage therapist.

In the United Arab Emirates, Reiki gets a mention in an article at Unfortunately the mention erroneously describes Reiki as a type of massage: it isn't.

And in this month's issue of The Reiki Times, published for members of the International Association of Reiki Professionals, there's an article by yours truly that may look familiar: Instant Hands-Free Reiki Self-Care.
