"Back in the spring of
1997 Aileen offered to do a full Reiki treatment on my
Morgan gelding Esquire who was experiencing pain and inflammation in his
right shoulder. The vet thought it was probably due to arthritis, which is
not uncommon for a 16 year old horse. As Aileen began Reikiing Esquire, I sensed
that the pain in his right shoulder was diminishing. After a second Reiki
treatment Esquire was obviously moving with less stiffness. Watching
Aileen Reiki my lad made me want to learn how to do Reiki on Esquire so
that I could help alleviate his symptoms of arthritis. In May 1997 I
became a level one Reiki practitioner, but I waited nearly two years to
study second level Reiki with Aileen.
During the three years that I have been
exposed to the first-hand effects of Reiki, I have seen my horse's
physical, mental, and emotional condition ameliorate in a way that I would
not have expected. Esquire used to be a very nervous worrier. These days
he's a calm, happy horse who enjoys life because he's no longer in pain.
During damp, rainy spells he might exhibit a little stiffness, but it
wears off in a matter of minutes instead of lingering until the weather
Am I a believer in the healing power of
Reiki? A thousand times yes!"
