Successful Treatment for Breast Cancer with Lymphedema
A woman, age 56 when we met, came to me for support during breast cancer. She had been diagnosed about 5 months before and had already had 3 surgeries. She was just starting chemotherapy when she called me for Reiki sessions, which she had heard could help with side-effects. We worked together for about four and a half years, until she and her husband moved out of the area in order to be closer to their son and grandchildren. In the beginning we met once a week, later every other week, and then once every month or two months. Besides Reiki, I introduced this client to meditation as a tool for relaxation, insight, and self-care. She credited meditation with helping her to focus on the positive aspects of situations and providing a calmness amidst the turmoil of everyday life.

Over four years, this woman went through several challenging experiences. She had alternate chemotherapy and radiation plus various medications. Reiki helped to alleviate her discomfort. One dramatic instance took place when she developed painful lymphedema in her right hand and arm. Having had her lymph glands as well as her right breast removed, she experienced the fluid retention common after this type of surgery. Her hand and arm were stiff and swollen with fluid. To her amazement, the painful swelling would go down visibly by the end of a Reiki session, and she could finally slip her rings off.

For this client, the mental and emotional benefits of Reiki were particularly striking. Like many people in a similar situation, she was full of fear. And as someone who admitted to craving control, she found it especially difficult to cope with those elements of her life over which she was losing control. This was especially challenging as she adjusted to life after cancer treatments, which coincided with stressful changes at her job and resulted in a complete change of lifestyle. The large bank both she and her husband worked for was taken over by an even larger bank. Massive lay-offs followed. Ultimately she realized she could no longer work in such a stressful environment, and I supported her as she found several rewarding volunteer activities. A highly intelligent, capable woman with a Ph.D., she enjoyed making a contribution, even though her skills exceeded the level of work she did at her new jobs. Reiki and meditation helped her to feel greater peace and opti!
mism. They also helped her to anchor a new attitude of relinquishing control to a higher power, of going with the flow and trusting more in her spiritual life.
