I recently received an email from a potential client who asked me the question many people want to know, "does Reiki really work?" It was perfect timing, as I had just strained my lower back while lifting my rambunctious puppy into the bathtub. The evening of the injury, I could barely get up and down without excruciating pain. I spent that night flat on my back in bed. Unable to sleep soundly, each time I woke up, I did self-Reiki. For two days, I continued with my daily self-Reiki practice and meditation.
