First Aid and Reiki
Jikiden Reiki teaches students the incredible first aid techniques that Usui passed on to Hayashi and Hayashi to Chiyoko Yamaguchi and her family.
Chiyoko used first aid in her daily life from the time she first learned. In her village in rural Japan, there were often childhood accidents she was called to help with. There were also many serious burns in those days which she often treated. She found the burns she treated with Reiki left no scars when treated immediately, even if they were quite severe.
Cuts, scrapes, bruises and sprains also heal incredibly quickly when treated immediately - it really has to be seen to be believed.
I was skeptical of this technique when I first learned it, but as soon as I used it, was truly amazed at the results. I now use them on a regular basis and no longer need to have a first aid kit in my home. I really recommend learning, even just for this!
Injuries and Reiki
Injuries heal much faster if you're using Reiki on them regularly. The Reiki usually helps with the pain too.
It is important, as with first aid, to use Reiki as soon as possible after the injury happens to achieve the best results. This doesn't mean it's not worth doing to older injuries, but the sooner you start, the better. As with all things, the longer they have been around, the longer it takes to see the wonderful effects of Reiki.
People who play sports find it helpful as it's great at reducing the recovery time from injury. I once taught a stuntman who wanted to use Reiki to help his (frequent) injuries immediately so he could continue to work with ease.
With long term injuries, you need to be patient, treat as often as possible, daily is optimal, and just keep going. Most people soon find that they have forgotten just how painful it used to be and that they are healing much faster.
