March is Brain Trauma Awareness month. A few weeks ago I put it out to the Universe that In One's Element would put it on our calendar and then lo and behold ran into someone who struggles from epileptic seizures. So, March is Reiki for Epilepsy month at In One's Element. Anyone who is living with seizures gets 25% off all sessions or workshops we are offering. Be advised if you are suffering from any type of brain trauma, you are included in the offering as well:)
I do not have epilepsy, nor will I pretend to be an expert. I get the gist of it, yanked someone out of a pool one time who was seizing and recognized it for what it was while people were screaming to give him CPR. My greyhound mix of 17 years (R.I.P. Reno) was epileptic, other than that, no experience.
So, how can those dealing with epilepsy possibly benefit from Reiki healing you ask? Well, for me it makes sense on an intuitive empathic level 'cause I'm a healer and I can feel it working for people just sitting here thinking about it while I type. Others might want a little more info, so I looked it up and here's the skinny :)
First of all, Reiki healing and seizures have hit PubMed, (US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health) and though most of the jargon they are saying hurts my brain, I do get that a published study showed that Reiki-like therapy helped with seizures. "Reiki-like healing practices in refractory epilepsy results in a reduction in seizure frequency. Reiki-like healing practices produce membrane stabilization and stimulation of membrane Na+-K+ ATPase activity by quantal perception of low levels of EMF.' Further research into the research I found that these patients had refractory seizures, which means that their seizures were/could no longer be controlled by any medications. After undergoing 3 months of Reiki-type hands on healing and daily meditation, they all showed a significant reduction in seizures." Neurology India, Publication of the Neurological Study of India has a great in-depth publication on the study and can be found here.
From everything that I have researched on this subject, the main thing comes down to testimonials. I run into the closed minded doctor online or internet troll who is angry about Reiki healing and thinks it's just pseudo-fake stuff, but they also do not have seizures... The testimonials (and there are many, many) say it all and it is that Reiki has helped their epilepsy and seizures immensely. Some, no longer even have seizures now that they are on a regular protocol. A lot of people dealing with this condition have learned how to self Reiki and have a daily practice for themselves. We at In One's Element teach private workshops and can teach you to do self Reiki if you find that the treatments help (25% discount, that includes parents of children with epilepsy so they can learn to work on their kiddo, as well as teach their child to do self Reiki as they grow and mature).
So if you are one of the people or has a child that is living with this condition, why not give Reiki healing a try? Check it out. See if it works. We offer great deals specifically so people can try Reiki out for whatever their condition is and see if it makes a difference. You have nothing to lose and maybe everything to gain.
