    No. Because it's mumbo-jumbo

    thankyou i wondered if a fair few ppl would say this

    ive had reiki or how its spelt...
    I didnt have it done for pain, just to relax me... a friend does it and i relaxed me.
    Not sure if it heals though.
    I found that her hands got soooooooo hot almost burning my head and she wasnt even touching my head!
    i could feel it. very strange but like i said, very relaxing.

    what about acupuncture?

    i tired it for healing my knee, it didnt seem to work, but i was sceptical the whole time so maybe going into it with an open mind will make it different !

    have that weekly but have also had both reiki and spiritual healing,hubby says its mumbo jumbo and all in the mind lol
    but when i last had it,quite a long time ago it did seem to work,either that or i got so relaxed i forgot about the pain i dunno which?!

    yes i have regular spiritual healing and many other things if nothing else they fully relax your mind and muscles which is so hard to do when you have chronic pain. I have a lot of chronic pain and would suggest if its there to try, try it. have an open mind and remember you regret more what you don't do that what you do do.

    Being more serious (only for a bit though) I suppose it depends what it's for. If it's for an ilness, I can't see something like that helping. But I suppose for stress relief it may be great.

    Accupuncture sounds like mumbo-jumbo but I know people who have had it and say it's absolutely brilliant.

    had acupuncture some years ago for shoulder - it did relieve symptoms

    also had head massage for sinus trouble - brilliant:thumbsup:

    and also very relaxing

    you dont know until you try mardy - some doctors will even refer you so you dont have to pay

    i can recommend a very good pain killer,
    Kapake i think its called, they can be addictive though but very good at eliminating pain.

    I have a frend who had reiki and she found one session good at relaxing her , but no influence on the pain and another session which wound her up!!
    I had acupuncture monthly for over a year to help with migraines and I think it did. There's lots of evidence that acupunture is very effective with 'straight-forward ( sorry not a good description but I hope you know what I mean)' pain.

    Not feeling so good Mardy?

    accupuncture rocks lol im chit scared of needles but addicted to accupuncture cos its one of the only things that gives me a bit of relief

    A friend of mine regularly had reiki due to chronic pain and she reckoned that she got some relief. Probably worth a go, but as others have said, go with open mind.

    i used to have a bad back for like two weeks, i used a cream called "voltarol" and it took the pain away.

    I had those after an op a couple of years ago. i was taking them as told to, stopped because I had no pain, then realised the pills were excellent when after a few hours I felt really ill... lol. They are very good.

    Have you got an NHS pain management 'person'? Another friend has constant problems with sciatica and related nerve/back thiings and finds the pain management people sort of helpful. Mainly he's improving because the NHS here have found a brilliant physio guy.

    im having physio weekly at the mo,got a recent whiplash injury on top of my old neck/shoulder injury which seems to have sparked off a whole heap of problems,been to chronic pain team time and time again and they only seem interested in shoving great big needles in my back and neck :x just fed up now,put up with it for years and am still searching for relief

    My mum used to see a spiritual healer. He was expensive but my mum always said she felt better for it. Have you tried a tens machine?

    My mum takes 18 painkillers a day...shes sparked out alot of the time too.

    yeah tried a tens didnt find it did anything,tried hydrotherapy,accupuncture,loads of various tablets,special pillows,matresses,neck collars,wheat bags and the only thing i find does something is the wheat bags,heat seems to make it a lil better or accupuncture

    think i might just have to have another bout at healing,could do with the relaxation if nothing else!

    My Gp just gave me these new pain killer patches as my spinal injections … My Gp just gave me these new pain killer patches as my spinal injections dont last more then a week and i cant take any others now cos they all leave me with tummy pains, they are called Fentanyl you need to apply one patch every three days, ive only had to use one so far ( injections lasting longer this time, had all the nerves in my lower spine KILLED!) and it was great, total pain relief for the 3 days from when i put it on to when i took it off.They make you a little drowsy but not as bad as some ive taken over the years, and its better then my last resort of morphine.A few years ago i had reflexoligy done on my feet to help my back, it was great while she was doing it but the minute she stopped the pain was 1000 times worse so i wouldnt go againhope this helps and hope you feel better soon.

    aahhhh not tried them,will have a lil look and see if i can find what ingredients they contain,thankyou i stupidly signed myself out of hospital after being on morphine for 3 months solid,they put me in the old ppls ward and some of them bless em had lost the plot,now that drove me crazy,constant shouting out all day and thru the night was very hard to deal with so i signed myself out went home and then suffered the cold turkey,didnt realise what a grip the morphine had on me,would never want to go down that route again i was a shivering wreck!

    what type of pain is it?

    yes pls would like to know what they contain

    no they wouldnt move me as they were "full up" it drove me half mad listening to it day n night lol

    what type of pain is it?

    the best way i can describe it is......its like heavy weights on my shoulders that give a constant burning pain,the back of my neck aches like crazy so much so it gives me headaches at the bottom back of my head

    Word of warning with Fentanyl, my brother and me were put on it 18 months ago for pain relief along with some other people in our specialist clinic.

    Not good if you have heart problems, even a murmur. I started getting palpatations, my brother had a mild heart infraction and a few others now have hearing problems, couple went deaf in one ear.

    We petitioned the hospital manager with the help of palliative care and it's now no longer used for treatment (was cheaper than morphine). Back on morphine and diamorphine now for pain relief.

    Hiya ... have a read on the subject of psychological pain...

    Hiya ... have a read on the subject of psychological pain...

    i attended some classes via the chronic pain clinic for meditation which was to do with the psychological side that comes with pain,however its hard to relax enough to attempt to meditate yourself away to a sunny hot beach when you have nagging pains lol

    If it makes tou FEEL better and does not cost too much, then go for it, especially for chronic problems where many thing have been tried.

    So long as they don't claim to CURE, then likely to be safe.

    Hospices for the terminally ill use a variety of different complementary therapies because they make people FEEL better.

    My niece has recently had acupuncture for chronic pain relief & her first session actually relieved her for over 6 hours ... I will let you know how her second session has gone when I find out later this week.

    It's a long shot but speak to your doc and see if he will prescribe lidocaine 5% medicated plaster. I know of a lady who swears by it after she tried everything for shingles pain and nothing else worked. The brand name is Versatis 5% medicted plaster. Hope this helps
