The behaviour and responses of a human body are miraculous and mysterious and they continue to be studied. In recent decades, there has been a mass of research  directed into learning about placebos.
      The Placebo Response or Effect is defined as a beneficial effect produced by a treatment, which cannot be attributed to the properties of that treatment, and is deemed to be due to the patient's belief that the treatment will be effective.
   Many are familiar with the idea that a patient receiving a sugar pill along with an assurance that it will cure their headache, do, in fact, experience the cessation of head pain.
     While the sugar pill is known to be ineffective as a pain reliever, this scenario has played out thousands of times all over the world. The **healing of the headache cannot be ascribed to the pill, and the only other variable is deemed to be the belief of the patient.
    In this age of chemicals and pharmaceuticals it is not difficult to access pills which do, in fact, disrupt the pain receptors of the brain, or which interfere with brain chemistry as a way of changing the patient's experience.
    What we sometimes forget, is that healing is not something which is given or applied: healing is a natural part of how the physical body responds.
    A broken bone can benefit from being splinted and aligned before it heals, the splint, however, does not heal it. No quantity of pain-killing drug will heal the bone – although the patient may be grateful for the relief of pain.
    The broken bone will grow new tissue; will knit a join, fill in the gap, and, forever changed, that part of the skeleton will return to functionality, or as near as possible after the break.
    Our bodies are self-healing, and while we can influence the conditions in which they heal, we cannot perform a healing  for anyone else.
    People do not visit a healer, either a Western medical practitioner, or one of many alternatives, in order to be healed.
    The most a practitioner can do is provide the conditions for the patient's body to heal itself in the most thorough and lasting way.
    Personal energy fields can become chaotic and disjointed – especially in times of sickness, injury or upset. People who read auras can see these disruptions.    
    Reiki is an alternative medicine system which was introduced in 1922 by Mikao Usui, a Japanese Buddhist. Since then,Reiki has been adapted to cultures all around the world. Reiki uses a technique which very often means they do not touch the patient, but hold their hands in proximity to them. The patient is always fully clothed.
     Universal energy, or Qi, is transmitted through the palms of the practitioner into the patient's energy field in order to activate healing. Western academics insists that there is no empirical evidence that no Life Force such as Qi exists
      As a Reiki practitioner, I am granted the opportunity to assist my clients in the activation of the healing powers within them. As their natural bodily energy is exposed to Reiki energy, it moves into harmony conducive to the restoration of balance.
    Reiki is a way to instigate the placebo response: to kick-start the body's natural healing ability. Like any other placebo, the only qualification is a belief in the positive result.
    There is no shortage of argument and nay-saying around placebos: certainly in this universe of intention, determination to continue feeling pain will be fulfilled.
     The human mind is a complex and powerful thing, and when it is enlisted in promotion of good health and healing -- in the physical and emotional planes -- there is no greater ally.

I have been practising Numerology and supporting clients through life changes since the 1980s.
