She emailed me a bunch of information and all sounded good to me. Like i said at this point i'm ready to give anything a try to get pregnant and have a healthy full term pregnancy. So i emailed her and said i wanted to give it a try. Last Tuesday was my 1st session and boy it was nice! Very relaxing and i felt so refreshed after it. Today was my 2nd session and again i felt relaxed and refreshed. You just feel so good after your session, drink lots of water after it!!

Hope to keep going..i know it helps with my stress alot!!

I found some information that i would like to share with you!!


Reiki and infertility

New self-help trends in Infertility

What effect can REIKI have on fertility?

Over the years Devorah Kur (Registered Therapeutic Reflexologist and Advanced Reiki Practitioner) has treated many infertility patients (those trying naturally to conceive and those at specialist clinics) with a high percentage of pregnancy success. The way she goes about this is by empowering the patient. There is a role for the patient to play and patients are discovering that when they actively get involved and take control of their condition, they start to notice changes or shifts both on a physiological level as well as an emotional level.

The fertility journey is emotionally draining and frustrating, and patients report feeling powerless during waiting phases, desperate, depressed and helpless.

By introducing REIKI into infertility treatments, Devorah has found that patients are able to have a shift in their stress levels, as well as a greater shift towards being hopeful with a more positive outlook.

What is Reiki?

Reiki means ‘universal life energy’ in Japanese and is a natural Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that promotes healing. It is based on the principle that negativity is caused by a disruption in the body’s energy field or life force. By channelling energy, it is believed that the body can be filled with positive energy causing the negative energy to release. Reiki is not the removal of symptoms; it is about releasing the cause of breakdown in the body back to a state of alignment and health.

Reiki connects to the spiritual element within us, our life-force energy, and is administered by 'laying-on of hands' in different positions on the body. It is a non-invasive treatment. Energy fields in the body have different vibratory levels and reiki practitioners use their hands to affect and rebalance these vibrations in the negatively affected part of the body.

Reiki brings you in touch with your emotions and feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. It treats the whole person, including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well-being.

What can Reiki do for you? Reiki will help you…
  • De-stress about your infertility
  • Change your negative mindset by shifting you into a positive space
  • Relax when it is so difficult to relax
  • Release mental blocks you may have about fertility
  • Make healthy lifestyle changes and give you a feeling of encouragement

People say, “Just relax and it will happen” or “Don’t be so stressed” or “Just give it some time”

You have tried relaxing and not stressing, but it is with you all the time, consuming you! You don’t know how! Reiki will help switch off your mind and all the doubtful and negative chatter. Once in this space, your mind will be relaxed and open to suggestion. This is where Devorah introduces powerful healing positive affirmations concerning fertility. The benefit of hearing these suggestions in a deeply relaxed state alters past thinking and creates new possibilities for the patient.

Empowering the patient with the tools to be more relaxed, calm and hopeful about their situation is a key element in coping.
“When my dreaded period arrives each month, it comes with disappointment, disbelief and resentment. These Reiki sessions have helped shift me out of negative thought patterns and have put me into a new hopeful cycle. I also feel more relaxed and less stressed afterwards, which is a huge change for me.” Woman trying to conceive for 14 months

Reiki healing is very useful during pregnancy and in treating infertility. Infertility compels the couple having trouble in conceiving to explore all possible ways to treat their problem. In desperation they are normally prepared to do anything to have their dream baby.
What most people do not realize is that this desperation actually adds to the stress and strain and further reduces the chances of pregnancy. With the help of Reiki energy infertile couples can
1. remove the imbalance in the pelvic and reproductive area
2. calm the mind and ensure that only positive energy and thoughts enter the system
3. with the help of Reiki couples with unexplained infertility stand to gain most. In case of women who are unable to conceive due to specific medical reasons which have been identified, Reiki will help you cope with the treatment better and restore your health faster
