Mills, M.D. In her article in the summer
2003 issue, Reiki in Hospitals, How I introduced Reiki Treatments into
my Obstetrics and Gynecology Practice, Dr. Mills says: "My C-section
rate declined from five or six per month to no more than one per month. My surgery
patients were going home one or two days after major operations, their hospital
stays a day or two shorter than expected, and they were requiring much less pain
medication than other patients." This is the first article of a regular column
in which I will describe the experiences of people who have made Reiki treatments
available in hospitals and other clinical settings. Many hospitals and clinics
now offer Reiki as a regular part of their services. Reiki has proven to be a
useful adjunct to Western Medical therapy. It has decreased the side effects of
medical treatments, helped to provide pain control, and hastened recovery times.
It is my purpose to provide inspiration, ideas, and resources for those wanting
to provide this service. Dr. Mills is a physician, board certified in
obstetrics and gynecology. She is also a veterinarian, a Certified Reiki Master
Teacher and author of the book Tapestry of Healing: Where Reiki and Medicine
Intertwine. She has lectured extensively about the integration of Western
medicine and Energy medicine. At present, she is devoting her time to writing
and teaching. Her goal is to serve as a bridge between Eastern and Western medicine.
