Undergoing surgery or a medical procedure and looking for complementary drug-free support? This article titled, Reiki Helps Patients Undergoing Knee Surgery in Massage Magazine, 1 Aug 2017, described a study which demonstrated that patients who received Reiki sessions experienced benefits ranging from less pain and lower blood pressure to reduced use of pain medication and a shorter hospital stay.
On medical procedure or surgery day, it is soothing and reassuring to have the constant support of a Certified Medical Reiki Master in the preparation area and the recovery room, inducing calm while supplying healing energy to you throughout the procedure. Reiki supports clients of all ages undergoing a variety of medical treatments to include surgery, chemotherapy, pregnancy, childbirth, and other serious medical procedures.
Reiki is being administered with positive results in Hospitals, Cancer Centers, VA Centers, and Hospice across the United States, Canada and the UK. Highly effective as a natural stress reduction treatment, Reiki calms the mind and emotions, releases tension and eases pain while supporting and accelerating the healing process. It helps with fatigue, nausea, and can diminish the side effects of chemotherapy and medications. Reiki provided in pre-op and post-op has been found to stabilize a patient’s blood pressure, minimize bleeding, and limit the need for pain medications following surgery.
Judy, as a Certified Medical Reiki Master, is passionate about sharing Reiki as a holistic, deeply relaxing, non-invasive complementary therapy with patients and their caregivers during what can be a very difficult and challenging time. She is available to support clients of all ages undergoing a variety of medical procedures.
On the day of surgery or medical procedure she will arrive when you arrive and remain with you throughout the entire procedure and into recovery. As Judy’s client, she will be focused solely on you and providing Reiki through the entire procedure. It is important to coordinate in advance with your doctor/surgeon to gain permission for Judy to support you during the medical procedure or pre/post op for a surgery. Advanced consent is required.
“What an incredible experience! Reiki made me very calm pre-op and post-op and I snapped out of the anesthesia “fog” so quickly. I haven’t had to take as many pain meds post-op, even days later!” - Lisa E.
Judy, I really cannot thank you enough for the support surrounding my knee surgery. It was invaluable! My strongest memory of the surgery itself will always be hearing the nurse say, “She has her Reiki practitioner with her,” as I was waking up from surgery. – Mary M.
"My experience with Judy Buchanan has been very personal and we have become close friends throughout my 2 year breast cancer journey. She has been here for me as a sister and as my Medical Reiki practitioner through procedures, scans and my latest major reconstructive surgery.
I won't go through another procedure, scan, surgery…ANYTHING, without Reiki!
I have to admit, the first time I saw someone getting Reiki I thought it was so weird looking. Then I got on the table and for me personally, it has been such a POWERFUL complimentary tool in integrative oncology! It is potentiating my holistic treatments and making them work stronger.
During the recent surgery, Judy was with me the whole day! It was a wonderful experience! I was able to decline anti-anxiety meds and was completely relaxed, ready and excited to go into surgery. That experience was so positive as compared to my mastectomy surgery 2 years ago when it was just me and my husband.
I was able to wake up very smoothly and came out of anesthesia with Judy right by my side. The side-effects of the anesthesia were GREATLY diminished. My expected stay at the hospital was 7 days and I was out in 3. I was expected to have four drains for 2-3 weeks and I had one drain for only 1 week. I was able to use less narcotics and by week 4, drop all pain medications. My surgeon was astounded with my recovery.
I am so grateful to have found Judy." - Lisa E.
