Reiki Roundup

El Paso, Texas, USA: Reiki is among the offerings at the U.S. Army's Ft. Bliss Restoration and Resilience Center, where veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) are finding ways to recover and go back to active duty with coping tools to prevent its recurrence. Unfortunately, the article in the El Paso Times refers to "Reiki massage" -- for the record, Reiki is NOT massage.

In Charleston, West Virginia, USA, a State Journal article features a naturopathic doctor who is also a Reiki Master Teacher.

Next stop, Lincolnshire, UK, where preschoolers at the Rainbow Cherubs playgroup receive Reiki and other natural therapies to help them deal with stress, even though a doctor representing the British Medical Association says " there's very little in the way of hard evidence that it produces any effect over and above the undoubted placebo effect."

And from a place called Tough near Aberdeen, Scotland, the story of a sheep called Harry who had no choice but to be tough: rejected by his mother shortly after he was born, Harry suffered from epilepsy in his youth and arthritis in his later years, but he was helped by Reiki and acupuncture. Harry died last month just after his ninth birthday. His fleece was knitted into a memorial jumper (that's a sweater to our US readers).
