    I would use Reiki to help lower my blood pressure
    If I had a pace maker I would also use Reiki. I have
    found Reiki to be a relaxing/calming method for people
    with /anxieties/panic attacks/blood pressure and more.

    namaste,
    i use to have high b.p. 150/90 or 100. after coming into reiki it is a cool 120/80 and even the doctors ask tell me that i must be into meditation or something to have such a good b.p. ratio. Smile so reiki really helps those with high b.p. and also those with low b.p.

    i wouldnot know about pacemakers, but i think those heart patients with stents also receive reiki. i think you can give reiki to other areas and avoid the pacemaker area if you feel that reiki may interfere with its working.

    There are studies that demonstrate that Reiki does help lower blood pressure. Here's a good Discovery Health article that talks about it:

    http://health.discovery.com/centers/althealth/reiki/reiki.html

    I have a client who had to have major open heart surgery done several months ago. He had bypass surgery and received a mechanical mitral valve. You can actually hear the valve opening and closing, like a metronome and it does speed up/slow down. (I did Reiki on him the other day and it was like having his heart beating in my head.) I worked on him in the ICU, in his hospital room and at home while he was recovering. There has not been any adverse effects from working on him. He found it so helpful, especially for pain relief from surgery. So I don't buy that it's dangerous to do Reiki on someone who has a pacemaker. Our hearts naturally function using electrical energetic impulses!
