What's a reiki doll?

What's a reiki doll?

Distance Reiki: Reiki dolls may be used when the practitioner is sending reiki to someone at a distance. Hand positions are placed on the doll (or even teddy bear), like they would be on the person if s/he was in the room. The process of preparation is a little different than it would be if the person was in the same room. But the intent and energy shared, are the same. The doll can be specially made, or not. ...Read more

Cnshypersomnia, have been on provigill, adderoll ect. They always work @1st then notso much, reiki worked better then qigong any idea what to try next?

Lots to try.: Is your hypersomnia due to depression? Provigil and Adderall (dextroamphetamine and racemic amphetamine) help but they tend to lose effectivity after long use. I think you are better off doing reiki and qiqong. Try stretching exercises, yoga, mindful breathing and don't forget, a balanced diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables. ...Read more

I have had bells palsy for 7 yrs is there anything I can do to make it better or go away? I tried massage, electric stim, reiki

I have had bells palsy for 7 yrs is there anything I can do to make it better or go away? I tried massage, electric stim, reiki

I: I am sorry to hear that your bell's palsy did not improve. Most run of the mill bell's palsies start to improve about three or four weeks after the weakness is maximum. A small percentage does not regain function. Unfortunately after seven years, it is unlikely that you will have return of function. There are some neurosurgical procedure that involve nerve grafts and some cosmetic procedures that can give your face more symmetry (and also protect your eye). I trust that your doctor has assured himself that you haven't developed a neuroma on the nerve. Facial nerve neuromas are not that common but can be a cause of permanent facial weakness. Reiki will not help. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Some have a very high rate of spontaneous rupture (anterior communicating) and others rarely rupture (cavernous segment). The treatment options are: 1) observation; 2) endovascular coiling/stenting; and 3) surgical clipping. Discuss with a neurosurgeon. ...Read more
