Reiki Treatment for Stroke
This Reiki treatment for stroke position was developed by John Harvey Gray, the longest-practicing Reiki Master Teacher in the United States, to treat conditions where the brain is unable to properly communicate with muscles in the body, e.g., stroke, MS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, Parkinson’s, etc. The effectiveness of the position hinges on your hands resting directly over the brain’s primary motor cortex–this is the part of the brain responsible for maintaining communication with the muscles of the body. Giving Reiki directly to this part of the brain supports the body’s natural ability to re-establish communication between the brain and the muscles.
Equally important is that you practice the Reiki treatment for stroke position as part of a complete Reiki treatment routine, that is all 3 patterns of hand positions, anytime you are giving Reiki to stroke victims or to people or pets suffering with other neurological conditions. Although, this Reiki position is most effective when used as soon as possible after a stroke, it should also be used on an on-going basis for long-standing conditions.
Disclosure: We always remind our readers that Reiki is is not a substitute for medical treatment when it is needed. Always consult a licensed medical professional before giving Reiki to any condition you may have.
