I’m interested to hear of your experiences with energy medicine - acupuncture, healing touch, reiki, tong ren, etc.? I’m not interested to debate this or defend it, just to learn of others experiences.
I will share mine. I have a friend who introduced me to Tong Ren 2 years ago when I learned of my first recurrence. She shared her first hand experience of people with serious illness (including end stage cancer) being healed. I read a book on it and have since participated in weekly group sessions. I never had an individual session until today - I spent 2 hours on the phone and had a fascinating discussion with the practitioner who also gave me tong ren therapy session. It is all very "out there"; so foreign compared to our western thinking.
Some things the practitioner told me are:
The practitioner I worked with today is not taking new referrals (he took me as favor to our mutual friend) but he does free group sessions weekly. If anyone wants specifics on this email me.
I have had healing touch sessions for over 3 years from nurse friend who would target therapies around my treatments and maintenance. I think it's interesting that my gyn-onc recently described "Chester" (my UPSC) as indolent (lazy) and I wonder if this is due to the energy work.
I'm now going to jump from my vegan ship and have an egg sandwich!! Hugs to all,
