Supporting Healing in the Amazon

The clinic was absolutely amazing. The people of Cauhide were so patient and grateful for treatment. They received auricular acupuncture, acupuncture, reiki, and massage. Many people were suffering from malaria and parasites, some with untreated symptoms for years! So many suffered from similar symptoms (dizziness, seeing stars, abdominal pain, lack of sleep – to name a few) that we began to call it “Cauhide Syndrome.”

I am so grateful that I was able to be a part of this. Reiki was a great way to help the patients relax and to gain rapport with the practitioners. Despite the suffering, language barrier, and less-than-optimal treatment conditions – we shared laughter, compassion, and healing. Many patients had such good results that they kept coming back.
Thank you for your support. I’ve got quite a ways to go to cover the expenses for this journey. Please continue sharing.
