Reiki and Traditional Science
Numerous scientific studies have been done showing that Reiki has a positive effect on health and healing. Reiki has been found to have a positive effect on “biological markers” as well as a positive outcome for pain management (1).
A study was done that showed cancer patients suffering from fatigue had positive effects (less tired) when receiving Reiki during treatments (1).
Another study was done on people having knee replacement surgeries. The study concluded that those patients who received Reiki had less pain, lowered blood pressure and less stress (2).
Energy Medicine (Reiki and other modalities) was studied in an inpatient and emergency department setting and the general conclusion was that most patients who received an energy medicine treatment had improved symptoms for whatever their chief complaint was (3).
