When Healing Isn’t Necessarily Curing

A while ago, I was contacted by a person who wanted to know if Acupuncture and Reiki would be able to cure him of HIV. While it isn’t always that we will come across folks who are seeking a miracle cure for something as severe as this there will be many occasions that as complementary therapists, we will frequently encounter people who are suffering from “incurable” diseases. While such diseases are considered “incurable”, does that mean that one cannot be healed?
