(ray-key) is a Japanese technique for relaxation, stress reduction, and self healing. Reiki takes a natural, non-invasive approach that is simple, and is led by a trained practitioner by placing hands on or near the receiver's body. This promotes health through mental, emotional, and physical balance of One's life force energy. If One's life force energy is low, then we are more likely to get sick and feel stress, and if it is high we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
However, if one is not close enough to experience an in person treatment, distant healing can be utilized. This is the act of sending Reiki over a distance to a client who is not in the same physical location. Distant Reiki can have the same benefits as Reiki experienced in person and can be just as powerful!
Reiki and Medicine:
Reiki is used in the Integrative Medicine programs of major U.S. hospitals including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (NY), the Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center (NY), the NIH’s Warren G. Magnuson Clinical Center (MD), Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center (NH), and in small community hospitals like Whidbey General Hospital (WA) and the Beebe Medical Center (DE).
Two studies include:
Cancer Prevention & Control: Cross Cancer Research Center, Alberta, Canada: Study finds “highly significant reduction in pain following Reiki treatment.”
Journal of Advanced Nursing: Study examines select physiological and biochemical effects following thirty-minute Reiki treatment. Biochemical and physiological changes suggest increasing levels of relaxation.
Increasingly, medical research shows the usefulness of Reiki in pain relief and management, increased healing, regulation of blood pressure, and much more. As acceptance in the medical community grows, doctors, nurses, health professionals, and a growing number of medical centers now recommend and/or incorporate Reiki as a part of their total patient care.
