Surgery Preparation and Post-Surgery Recovery

Surgery preparation and post-surgery recovery

Marcus in his Alameda, California healing center.

The following are some of my clients’ Testimonials about the benefits they have received from our in person and distant healing sessions for physical and emotional preparation for surgery and for post-surgery recovery and healing:


My daughter treated me to a reiki session with Marcus prior to my mastectomy surgery. I had been getting more and more fearful and nervous about having a precious part of my body removed. I went into the session, partly to please my daughter, but also open enough to the process that I could fully participate. We had a good discussion before the actual reiki experience, and Marcus incorporated some of the conversation into the session.

The Indian music, combined with the crystal, the soothing voice of Marcus–it’s impossible to explain how the tension and fear gradually left my body, and a deep serentity took its place. I walked out of that room with a whole new feeling of confidence and energy. When I arrived at the hospital the next day, I was there as a participant in my own healing, not someone facing a very frighting experience.

The surgery was a 100% success! I’ve had very little pain, and my recovery is going very well. I highly recommend reiki with Marcus for anyone facing a frightening medical–or any other– situation.

In November 2015, when I learned I was suffering from spinal stenosis and would need neck surgery (cervical laminectomy for c5 and c6 and fusion from c3-c7), I was a little freaked out to say the least. A good friend of mine suggested we try Reiki before the surgery as a way to prepare for the physical trauma and perhaps support the post op healing. We saw Marcus two days before the surgery, which I am sure alleviated any anxiety I might have experienced.

I was pretty calm before the surgery, which was very successful. The recovery, however was much more difficult than I was prepared for. Since then, I’ve incorporated pilates and chiropractic care for the physical, but feel Reiki supported the emotional healing and allowed a continued sense of calm and patience to keep moving forward with my recovery. It is nine months later and I’m doing great!  Thanks Marcus!

Last November, while visiting my husband’s family for Thanksgiving, my mom broke her femur. She was 92 at the time, had emergency surgery, and was recuperating at a skilled nursing facility in Marin County. Something led me to Marcus for help with her healing. He visited her at the facility and performed distance healing, too. My mom has turned 93, and is well on the road to recovery and walking again, amazing!!!

As it turns out, Marcus may have helped me just as much. I had a persistent pain in my elbow, diagnosed as tennis elbow, for well over a year and a half. To try to relieve the pain, I visited my acupuncturist, a structural physical therapist, and did arm strengthening exercises, but nothing helped, until the work with Marcus. During an intensive double session, Marcus helped to release the physical and psychological damage that inflicted me for so long. Today, four months have passed and I have no signs that this pain will return. I recommend the Reiki work with Marcus if you need help with pain or issues that you can’t let go of. He is truly amazing.
