Reiki for Dementia Related Wandering & Paranoia
Senior Care of Sacramento CEO Therese Johnson is a Reiki practitioner. In this interview, Therese talks about her experience giving Reiki treatments to patients over the years and seeing firsthand the benefits for behavior problems associated with aging and dementia. Reiki is a touch-based “bio-energy” therapeutic practice that helps the patient break energy channels that get blocked or weakened, so that energy flows through the body to the point(s) of trauma. In medical settings, Reiki is best known for giving pain relief. It’s used mainly at hospice and cancer clinics in the U.S. Recent clinical studies, several of which are now in process of peer review, have shown that the use of Reiki before and after surgery speeds recovery. Therese will keep you updated in her blog about the status of these peer reviews and the increasing acceptance of Reiki treatment by health insurance companies.
