Abstract:

Session presented on: Monday, November 18, 2013

Eastern cultures have incorporated multiple complementary and alternative treatment modalities into their health care for centuries.  While Western society has been slow and reluctant to follow their example, Reiki, vibrational medicine, Therapeutic Touch, aroma therapy, and reflexology are some of the techniques appearing more often in today’s literature and healing practices.  Health care providers who have studied these techniques and incorporated them into patient care often see profound and positive results.  This presentation is a history of three successful experiences of a registered nurse who has trained in Therapeutic Touch and Reiki and used a variety of complementary/alternative treatments to assist patients with their healing.  The first case study utilized Therapeutic Touch to complement multiple surgical repairs of a completely torn Achilles tendon.  The second case study documents the progress of Therapeutic Touch exclusively in the healing process of a 86-year old lady who suffered severe facial contusions after a fall.  The third case study compares lab values of an ovarian cancer patient receiving weekly chemotherapy and suffering multiple adverse effects.  As these negative effects became increasingly overwhelming, the frequency of multiple complementary treatments was increased. Seeing is believing – this presentation has pictures, video, and charted lab values to document the results seen in each case.
