    Hi

    I know someone who would like some reiki on a broken collar bone, broken only 5 days ago. I know we shouldn't reiki a bone until it has been properly set but the collar bone is not set. The xray looks like a clean break . Not sure what to do. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks
    Love

    Lena xxxx

    Hi lena,

    Yes I think that's right, although I believe your friend can still give reiki on other areas of the body, not directly to the broken bones - this is the recomendation when you want to avoid a certain area I think.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    I haven't had any personal experience of using Reiki with broken bones, but I was lead to believe it was a myth. Surely if you dedicate the healing to the highest good of the person then it's not going to do any harm?

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Well said Shining Star.
    I was taught not to heal broken bones when I learnt Reiki, but we have to go with our beliefs and intuition on the matter. For me, if we are giving healing for the highest good, then no harm will come from treating the broken bone or the area around it. I have given reiki to someone with a broken toe, directly on the toe (well about 1" above it!) before and it was very beneficial for them.

    In this respect Reiki could act to reduce bruising, lessen tension in the muscles, alleviate pain and allow the body to move the bones back into place.

    Obviously, as with all conditions, it is recommended that the person has sought suitable medical advice, especially with something as serious as that.

    Love and Reiki Hugs

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Hi Lena,
    I was taught, and indeed I now teach, that you shouldn't give Reiki on broken bones until the break has been properly set. The reasoning behind thatis that you don't want to encourage the body to heal and set the bone itself if it is not set straight. This may result in the bone having to be rebroken and reset.So wait until the bone is checked and set in plaster. Unfortunately we live in a litigious world these days.
    Problems arise over bones that aren't set in plaster, for example the collar bone and ribs. From personal experience I broke one rib and cracked another on holiday recently. Had them X-rayed and told basically - "tough they will heal themselves in about six to eight weeks - justkeep taking thepainkillers". I have had several Reiki treatments on them by others and myself and four weeks later I am virtually back to normal with only a slight twinge when I sneeze!
    My advice therefore, based on personal experience, is go for it and give some treatment.

    Thank you all so much, great help.

    I've decided to wait a while until the hospital is happy with the progrss and then I will give him reiki.

    lotsa love

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    When giving healing the body will heal what is wrong or broken therefore if giving reiki for the higher good the bone will heal in the correct way.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Ah this lovely old myth again. We either trust Reiki or we don't. If you trust it use it. I have sent Reiki into many broken bones and never has there been a problem. If you were to scan your hand would probably be led to the broken bone, so why go against what the body wants.
    Trust Reiki and put your own fears aside.

    Love and light,
    Christina

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    This isa very interesting question. I have a very common sense approach to Reiki and to healing. Reiki energy will stimulate a broken bone to mend back together. I would imagine if the bone is at an odd angle it will mend and stay at that angle. I tend to prefer my clients to go to the hospital if they have a broken bone. Once this has been put in a cast or set by a doctorI then treat it with Reiki to stimulate and accelerate the repair process.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Well said, Christina. These myths about Reiki should be put to bed once and for all.

    We live in a society that is Health and Safety mad and overcome with a paranoid fear of everything.

    Trust the Reiki to act for the utmost good of the person receiving it and give them Reiki at every opportunity - whether or not they have broken bones (set or unset - it doesn't matter).

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Good for you.

    The following points or similar should be in your codes of conduct.

    The Healer will not treat any person, who to his or her knowledge, is at the time of the treatment, under the care of a medical approved Practitioner, for any condition that may be affected by the therapy/treatment, without the knowledge and consent of that medical approved practitioner.

    The Healer should not offer healing as an alternative to orthodox medicine, but as a complementary treatment.

    I know it is unfortunate, but please remember that in today's society the realthreat ofLegal action (malpractice)exists. Therefore IMO not only follow your codes of conduct, but be insured and if in doubt please ask your patients/clients doctor for permission.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    What if person wants an 'alternative treatment' as well as the 'conventional treatment', in spite of the doctors advice?
    What if the person wants only the alternative - in our case Reiki - and gives up or stops the conventional treatment
    in spite of the doctors advice e.g. chemotherapy making them unacceptably more poorly - so they stop treatment.


    Also re. the approval of a doctor :
    1) The doctor shouldn't even admit to treating somebody - confidentiality,
    2) I wouldn't break a persons confidentiality by asking a doctors permission/approval to give - in this case -Reiki.

    My view and practice (Code of Conduct [sm=scratchchin.gif]) is; If a person wants Reiki from me, they will get it! I don't have to ask permission from
    anyone except the person being treated! In fact I get asked for Reiki treatment, even though I do not advertise.
    As Christina said "We either trust Reiki or we don't. If you trust it use it"

    I agree that insurance is necessary - even if only for your own peace of mind.
    It costs almost nothing compared to the hours of worry that might be experienced IF a client ( or their family)were to complain or a doctor put their oar in.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    This is only a personal thing whilst I can accept you have your views I cannot totally agree with them. IMHO Reiki is a complementary therapy not an alternative. As therapist IMO we should always ensure that any therapy should only be given with the Doctors Consent, if that person isreceiving ongoing treatment from their doctor. Whilst treatment is at the person own choice IMO we would be wrong to offer any treatment for an obviously serious complaint without advising that person to see their doctor. We also have to remember that we could fall into the trap of offering a diagnosis of an illness which would IMO be also totally wrong


    There is no breach of confidentiality here the requirement is that the patient hasmentioned the treatment totheirdoctor not the healer asking the doctor for permission.
    But if visiting a person in hospital of course the healer would need to ask permission of the nursing staff/doctors.

    IMO if you really want to help someone in that position then surely you should be offering reiki to help them overcome their emotional problem with the treatment, otherwise you could in fact be saying "Don't worry give it up I will give you reiki so no problem” I am sure you don't mean that or do you?

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    This is an interesting debate :)

    I think the question is,should healing be classed as a therapy at all? would you say you had received a treatment if the local clergies laid hands on you for healing?

    My own thoughts are that it should not, therapies work on the principle that if you do x and y you will most of the time end up with z, this is all established over many years of trial and error.

    There are no certainties with any form of healing, it is up to the healee what they do with the energy treatment, they can completely reject it or use it for something completely different to what might have been discussed at the outset of the treatment.

    As for working on bones broken or otherwise, it might well be worth considering that quantum touch use the same energy to manipulate bones or adjust their alignment etc. there is no reason why other modality users can't create the same effects, so with a broken bone you would put your intention to realign it first before healing it! just a thought.

    There are also a growing number of individuals that have rejected conventional mainstream medicine and do not even have a Dr to ask, they have taken responsibility for their own health and decide for themselves who will and who will not treat them and when they will receive treatment.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Yes you are right Paul. The problem is that it has been classed as a therapy, as per the house of lords report. So we are stuck with it.

    I can understand that there will be healers out there that do their own thing come what may, that’s fine for them.
    But my point is that if you are calling yourself a Reiki Practitioner or Therapist then you should abide by a code of conduct and ethics.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Yes it should. Reiki is not the same as other forms of healing because it works directly on conditions.

    If Reiki is used correctly it should have a consistent positive result on whatever condition is being treated.

    Do you mean up to the healee or healer? A healee cannot reject the energy if a healer channels it into them.

    A bone should always be set by a doctor before a Reiki practitioner does any healing work on it, or they will heal it in the unset position. The energy will not adjust the position of the bone. Reiki practitioners should work with doctors not against them.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Most forms of healing work directly on the conditions. In fact some (not me) will tell you that they work better than reiki and are far superior. There are many posts on HP that say that.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    I think this is the point of view held by most Reiki people.
    I think I may be in a very small minority when I sayI believe that with Reiki you can have outcome z if you do x and y. I have found that the results are consistent and repeatable across a wide range of both physical and emotional conditions. The other thing I have found is that the healees cannot reject or use the energy in a different way, it is the frequency of the energy and how much and where it is put that determines its effect. I suppose it depends on how you use the energy what the outcome will be.

    With broken bones, I always insist any of my clients see a doctor first and have it treated medically. I am happy to work on a broken bone once it is set to enhance the healing process and greatly reduce the time it takes for full recovery.

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    If we look at the original question , the bone in question had been ex-rayed and deemed fine to heal as it was, it is often the same with broken ribs, they could strap up the rib cage but it make little difference to the setting of the bone.

    At the end of five days it would probably need re-breaking to set it in a different position to what it already is setting itself in, bones need putting into position as soon as possible as the natural healingprocess of the body starts as soon as the break happens.

    But yes let common sense prevail, if someone asks you for healing and their bone is sticking out of their body, they need urgent medical treatment :)

    I would be interested to hear how some of youbelieve you can override someones free will and force them to accept energy healing, andwhy do you believe you can again override someones free will and determine the outcome of their healing?

    RE: Reiki on broken bones

    Hi Dawn,

    That is purely a matter of personaly belief. Everyone will have their own view on that. ;)

    Why will the energy not adjust the position of the bone. If Reiki can work on a physical level (which it can) then it can cause the body to adjust in various ways.
    I don't think that anyone has said we should be working "against" doctors. Of course we should all be working with them.

    Love and Reiki Hugs
