Reiki and Medicine
Although Reiki started as a healing art practiced by a small group of students in 20th century Japan, it is now widely known across the world as a potent means for one’s health. Reiki treatments are even being sought after by modern medicine for the benefits it offers to patients suffering in a variety of ways.
In fact, Reiki is being utilized and offered to staff and patients alike in hospitals. According to a poll taken in 2007 by the American Hospital Association, Reiki is being used in 15%, or 800, hospitals across the United States. These are hospitals and care centers like Yale New Haven’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital Boston, Living Well Cancer Resource Center, Duke Integrative Medicine, Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, Columbia University Medical Center, Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, and The California Pacific Medical Center.
With a more holistic view of healing being upheld by an increasing number of medical professionals, Reiki is seeing an immense gain in popularity these days. A patient’s journey towards a their own complete picture of healing is becoming more well rounded, and Reiki treatments are becoming a valuable asset to health professionals and patients.
Research is still being pursued as to how Reiki effects physiological systems. However, recent clinical research has shown that there is evidence that Reiki has been effective in areas of relaxation and pain management and in reducing anxiety, reducing depression, and even enhancing well-being.
