Case Study: Reiki and Psoriasis Treatment


Article by Gustavo Cristian Fritz

Emotions have a great power inside us that we should be aware of, because they have the power to give us health or, conversely, take it away.

Humans are integral beings composed of physical body, mind, emotions and spirit. When one part is ill, it affects all the others. For example, if we are always concerned about everything, we end up affecting the stomach and spleen-pancreas; or it may happen that, as a result of hepatitis, we are in a bad mood at the slightest disappointment.

This case involves a 17 year-old-boy who suddenly found himself affected by a kind of psoriatic outbreak all over his body. As expected, he began treatment with one dermatologist after another. In the long run, he came to visit me in the conditions amply represented in the first two pictures. After filling out a questionnaire, we decided to start Reiki conventional treatment. This involves 4 consecutive sessions and later 4 more sessions, one every week. Adding to the Reiki treatment and because the initial situation presented (think about the situation on a teen boy with this condition throughout his body including the face), Rescue Remedy was recommended up to a time when the boy would be able to achieve a recommendation tailored to his real emotional condition, which would require at least one, two or more interviews.

Initial Condition

As all the people who practice Reiki know, it involves no diagnosis or prognosis. However, in the first session, there was a point that was clear: he came here because he was willing to be better, he should make the effort and I should simply help him as cane to lead his way.

As we expected, many things occurred during those first 4 sessions. Things were unlocked and those were reflected in the change of his attitude and posture.

After the first 8 sessions and with only a month and a day of treatment, he achieved what is shown in the second pair of pictures. As you can see the lesions disappeared leaving only the difference of pigmentation marks on the skin. The same degree of change was achieved in his attitude and he knew it when he said: “I’m in a better mood and I am not rude anymore. I really feel better.”

I acknowledge that I have seen many wonderful things through Reiki, but in this case, the change was in such a short time after a long time of suffering that it surprised me. The strength that he put in his recovery really made the difference.

After Reiki Treatment

I wanted to briefly show this case in these lines, since many times before giving routine meetings, we forget the power that we have and that everyone is playing their role in whatever they do.

Let God surprise us about what can be achieved when someone decides to heal and is helped with true love through Reiki, Bach Flowers or the therapy that is appropriate for him or her.

When we try to do something by heart, the universe conspires with us so that it becomes possible. Imagine where you can get when many people are together in a chain of Reiki to distance!

We still ride around this beautiful road and although not all are roses, plants are worth trying.

As the Reiki Master Jorge Barbiere Mejia, who said:


You are the one who decides how to live or give you the opportunity to live better. You must give the first step for any change.

  1. I know Reki heals because I was treated for PTSD and was healing in “98”. I have since been a Level 1 Reki Practitioner; who intends to develop further to Master level. I am thankful for the free book.
    The artical resonates with me. We are beings who need treatment that is holistic: Spirit, Body, Mind- thoughts/emotions, and Intellect. I agree wholeheartedly that the participants desire to heal, and your loving heartfilled intent in facilitating him, excelirated the healing process. I look forward to reading the other studies as well as sharing n learning from you.

  2. It is a miracle. I personally understand the trauma one has to go through when such Skin disease is diagnosed as few years ago Doctors wrongly diagnosed for this disease and you come to know, there isn’t any permanent cure in Medical Science except the Lotions (for the etching part).

    Thanks for sharing this and keep the good work. God Bless you!!! (The First Sentence came to my mind after reading this case study).

  3. Thanks a lot for sharing such important cure.Actually these are the ways teachers lile you are playing important role in our lives by educating us.I have done my third degree.once again thanks a lot.

  4. I would also be interested to know more about the process involved in the treatments as this is kind of like a before and after testimony rather than a case study. It gives me great joy to see how you have helped this young man and would like to know more – for example you said that things came up in the sessions – what were those things? I am a Reiki 2nd Degree practitioner and also have psoriasis myself, so this is of particular interest to me.

  5. i too would like the full details on the process used to achieve these results. I am a Reiki Level 2 practitioner and have suffered with psorious almost my entire life.
    With Love and Light xx

  6. the power of the spirit never ceases to amaze! I am a level 1 and I love learning about the possibilities of Reiki. Thank you for sharing this story 🙂

  7. Absolutely amazing Gustavo. I am a reiki practitioner and it never ceases to amaze me how Reiki heals, and also the Bach remedies. I’ve never thought to offer both but I can see the benefit. I personally include crystals with my reiki which work well together. Thank you so much for sharing. Many blessings x

      Blessing for you and your loved ones


  11. It’s Amazing!,,,,,,I know reiki does miracle ..I have completed level 2..thanks for sharing.God bless all of us so that we can cure many more…

  12. Thanks so much. Right on time. One of my team member is suffering and shifting doctors. I know now what she needs. Thanks.

  13. All auto-immunity diseases are caused by intestinal issues so the main focus will be on clearing and balancing the solar, sacral and root chakras. Obviously all other chakras will need to be dealt with also and the self healing intention should be submitted into the brow chakra as the pineal gland controls the release of self healing proteins.

    I is a good idea to lift the unwanted emotions from the sacral into the brow, altering them from begative to positive also, as the source energy for the self healing – like any feedback loop – the clients own emotions begin to trigger their own self healing. That will reduce the number of session that are required for any patients you have.

    The purpose is to trigger their self healing without the need for constant sessions.

    I am a self developed energy healer and not Reiki attuned. I have one symbol only as the importance is intention and not the symbol itself – a limitation of the Reiki system.

  14. Robert,
    Thanks for your comment-

    Personally I do not believe that Reiki has the limitation that you mention , as always the most important is the intention.

    For the attuned question I have my reservations that the ego did not pass over it, and to accept that we are not infallible

    Greetings and blessings

  16. Thanks for the article and has given me hope as my is being diagnosed of celiac disease. I know reiki does miracles… l have completed level.2. Pls guide me as how can i help my daughter getting healed. Thanks

    • Dear Mridu, as you said , reiki is miraculous. I recommend strongly that his daughter take weekly sessions of reiki in person

      On the other hand she follow the diet your doctor recommends

      Many of these diseases have emotional origin and with time , work and perseverance can be reversed

      Blessing …. with love !!!


  17. Hi Gustavo,

    I too have psoriasis. I am learning reiki level1. Though I dont have any idea right now how to go about using it to heal myself.

    My question is, if there is an emotional cause for this disease, what steps do we need to take? Do we need to make ourselves aware of what that emotion is, overcome it, or just be aware? Or will reiki cure it even if we do not know the emotional reason? Is the emotion linked to this life only or can it be from previous life?


    • Dear Rinki:

      Thank you for your trust

      How wonderful to me to hear you

      Reiki is a great tool

      In the psoriasis case published above I combined Reiki + Bach Flowers drops

      If you aren’t on the mood I recommend you to take Reiki sesions with other person

      Psoriasis its a inmune desease , the it’s a good oportunity to think what emotions from the past appears in the present to be solved. Generaly the root it’s a strong guilty feeling.

      I hope I have been of help to you if not, don’t hesitate to contact me again by mail to ( with Y not Gmail – confidential )



  18. Great story Gustavo! Helping people heal is such a joy.

    And I have a little story to add. While not as severe as your client my psoriasis had been on my legs for around 15 years. No treatment ever completely eradicated it. I had just become interested in energy healing and I was practising daily on myself – I had not been attuned at this stage and was focusing on connecting with the energy not on any specific healing – After around 10 days I went to apply my usual cream on my legs and was amazed to find my psoriasis almost completely healed. Fast forward several years and It has remained under control with only have a tiny patch on the back of one leg.

    My complete and utter belief in Reiki’s wonderful healing ability has never wavered since then.

  19. Dear Grace

    Thank you for sharing your story that also helps others to trust Reiki as a powerful tool to live a better life



  20. Dear Sir,
    I think Reiki has the power to heal us as humans and cure any disease or disorder. I am a level 1 practitioner and have found Reiki extremely useful in keeping Psoriasis under control and occasionally making it disappear completely. Reiki keeps the stomach in good shape and keep the sleep deep. Do you know a case where Reiki has cured Vitiligo? I know cases where Reiki has cured cancer (a doctor was the patient).
    Anupam Banerjee

    • Dear Anupam

      As you say, Reiki is a powerful tool and can be used in all people, Reiki seeks the harmonization of the person. Diseases are initially energetic disorders. I do not know a particular case about vitiligo. But I do not treat diseases and I treat people. For this reason I believe that if the person balances, the illnesses stop or even disappear.

      Blessings for you and your loved ones

      • Dear Gustavo,
        So true! If the person balances, diseases , whatever they may be, disappear! That seems to be what my studies tell me too! However, why do you say that diseases are “initially” energetic disorders? Are they not “always” so? If one is able to balance his energy , balance his chakras, at any stage, initial or later, one should be free of the disease.
        Light and Regards,

        • Dear Abupam
          In this sense that you mention I extend a little more in the explanation.
          According to Chinese medicine and Ayurveda, physical illness is the consequence of hundreds of notices of energy / emotional imbalances that we have chosen not to listen to.
          Once the disease originates in the densest plane it is much more difficult to reverse than to balance the energy body. It is not impossible, it is more difficult and some therapists maintain that there is a point at which this damage becomes irreparable. Each person is a world, so generalizations are not good. I do not treat diseases, I receive sick people with a desire to heal.

          With love
