"Jean has given me Reiki treatments for several years. She worked on my hip arthritis with significant improvement in my overall pain and functioning, allowing me to take less anti-inflammatory medication and be on my feet for much longer periods. My arthritis, however, remained quite severe according to the x-rays, and I eventually needed hip replacement. After surgery Jean gave frequent treatments, which allowed my body to heal faster. As she worked, I could feel the energy start to flow through my hip and leg, much like water starting to flow through a previously stopped up drain. I am convinced that Jean’s treatments not only delayed the need for surgery, but contributed to the overall success of the surgery, once it became necessary. I wonder if I had started treatments earlier, could I might have avoided that surgery altogether? "
