Recently, Patricia has re-evaluated her life and focused on coming to terms with haven just come through breast cancer, she considers herself very lucky to be alive. She stopped her healing practice as soon as she was diagnosed in late 2016. After year of grueling medical treatments she has still needed time to recuperate to regain emotional and physical strength. However, she is very grateful for all the life-saving medical treatments and compassion she encountered throughout her fight to save her life. Energy healing, friendship and prayers have played enormously supportive roles in her recovery. In particular, Patricia found Reiki and energy healing gave her comfort, strength and hope during the dark times of terror, suffering and despair. Patricia believes that complementary health can be a helpful adjunct to medical care once the complementary treatments do not interfere or counteract the medical approaches. Patricia would like a bridge to be built between complementary medicine and orthodox scientific medical care as the two in co-operation can increase health and quality of life. Earlier this year Patricia received the all clear following a mammogram and ct scan. Patricia is living proof that life can improve even when things look very bleak.
