I always say that I will try anything once. Really, what do I have to lose, right?
So my wonderful chiropractor's office was doing a promotion for free Reiki treatments and I had my first session yesterday after school. I have nothing but respect for my chiropractor, who I credit with saving me from a life of chronic back and shoulder pain. I knew that if she had a Reiki practitioner in her office that it wasn't just some strange hocus pocus.
For those of you that don't know know, Reiki works with the body's energy. K, the practitioner, used her hands on various parts of my body to help bring the healing energy to the area. K also told me that she can feel what other people feel in their bodies, which is why she decided to practice Reiki.
K started the treatment by putting her hands on my feet and then she went directly to my stomach. At that point I hadn't said anything about IF or endo, but she just knew that my lower stomach area needed focusing on. I told her that it was very interesting that she was drawn to my reproductive organs because of my impending surgery as well as our struggles to get pregnant. I also told her that my instincts knew that there was something wrong, but it took four doctors to finally diagnose me with endo as well as low progesterone.
Once again I feel even more confident that my surgery is going to bring us the answers that we need. I can't remember if I mentioned that my naturopath did testing and something that came up as a concern was my endometrium. Honestly, all signs seem to point to endo! The question is: How bad is it going to be?
The Reiki treatment left so energized. When I arrived at the clinic I was so exhausted. We had just celebrated the 100th day of school and I made 82 Cheerio and Fruit Loop necklaces with grade ones all day! I could feel waves of energy in certain parts of my body -- particularly my heart and my head (which I think is because of my wisdom tooth. Btw, my tooth basically stopped hurting after the treatment!). I also saw different colours which K says are related to the various chakras.
K also, very generously, said that after my surgery that she'll come to my house to do a Reiki treatment to help with the healing process. I'm also thinking that it would be a good idea to book a treatment before my surgery as well.
I don't know if Reiki is going to help me get pregnant, but I certainly felt so good afterwards. And really, that can't hurt, right?
I'm going to the dentist after school to deal with my crowning wisdom tooth. I'm pretty scared since I haven't been in over two years. I told my hygienist that we were TTC and every time I had my cleaning she brought it up. I really didn't want to have to talk about being infertile with someone every six months! I really hope that the dentist has a solution for me, teething at 34 isn't fun at all!
