Reiki Roundup

Animal Reiki makes headlines from coast to coast in the United States this week. First stop, New York City, where a reporter for not only observes a Reiki treatment on a cat from Reiki Master Johanna Campbell, he does more extensive legwork on the story by experiencing it himself.

And on the other coast in San Rafael, California, we find Reiki Master and author Kathleen Prasad, who addressed the 33rd Annual American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association Conference earlier this week. A growing number of veterinarians around the world are opening their minds and even offices to Reiki, according to the association, with nearly 100 veterinarians are listed as Reiki practitioners in the U.S. alone.

Racine, Wisconsin: Reiki will be among the services offered at the soon-to-open HOPES Center, a multipurpose community center organized by five Dominican nuns.

Bradford, United Kingdom: Reiki gets a brief mention in an article on hospice and palliative care headlined, "People don't just come here to die."

Darlinghurst, Australia: Reiki practitioner Kerry Isabel Downes draws on her own experience to help lesbian mothers who have lost children to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome or stillbirth.

Liverpool, United Kingdom: "I will beat cancer for my daughters," says a breast cancer patient who finds Reiki and other natural modalities helpful in her battle.

Salt Lake City, Utah: The proprietor of a massage center offering "sensual Reiki" has been arrested and charged with raping two women who applied for jobs there. Legitimate Reiki practice has no sexual aspect or contact.

Morris, Illinois: A group of women gathering at a weekend retreat for some "me time" will be learning about "Creating Loving Boundaries" from Reiki Master Teacher Linda Herrick.

Portsmouth, New Hampshire: We all need a little stress in our lives, but not too much, says Dr. Jerrold Pollack, who recommends Reiki and other methods to reduce stress levels.

I think this is just amazing. I was attuned to Reiki because of a rescue dog. She was diagnosed with cancer and I went into the mode of trying to help her heal; she brought Reiki into my life. I am trying to get my local veterinarian to be more informed of Reiki and offer it.
