Reiki is a safe and gentle form of energy healing, in which hands are placed just off the body or lightly touching the body. Reiki is a powerful healing modality that restores the optimal flow of energy within the body and activates the natural healing process. Reiki dissolves any blockages and helps the body with stress reduction, relaxation, balance and even joy.

REIKI IN HOSPITALS
REIKI IS ACHIEVING MAINSTREAM RECOGNITION for the powerful benefits it provides as a complimentary therapy to conventional medicine. Reiki is becoming an accepted presence in hospitals and clinics today because the healing approach is non-traumatic and easily integrated with conventional therapies. Several top medical facilities are realizing the benefits of Reiki, especially in the areas of pain control and cancer complementary care. According to a UCLA study “more than 60 U.S. hospitals have adopted Reiki as part of patient services, and Reiki education is offered at 800 hospitals.”
RESEARCH BASED EVIDENCE
In 2009, The Center for Reiki Research completed the Touchstone Project, which summarized Reiki studies published in peer-reviewed journals. The 25 studies examined were further evaluated to determine the effectiveness of Reiki. The conclusion states: "Overall, based on the summaries of those studies that were rated according to scientific rigor as "Very Good" or "Excellent" by at least one reviewer and were not rated as weak by any reviewer, 83 percent show moderate to strong evidence in support of Reiki as a therapeutic modality."
