After decades of often disputed validity, the effectiveness of Reiki, a holistic energy treatment is gaining new respect within the medical community.

Reiki is an energy healing treatment that works holistically; on the whole body, mind and spirit. Reiki is simply a relaxing treatment whereas natural healing vibrations are transmitted through the hands of a Reiki practitioner to the body of the recipient. The purpose of a Reiki treatment is to relieve stress and pain, induce relaxation, release emotional blockages, accelerate natural healing, balance subtle body energies and support other medical modalities including traditional therapies. 

Today, Reiki education is offered free of charge in more than 800 American Hospitals as a means to accelerate the healing process and to alleviate pain.

For years Reiki, along with other methods of holistic therapies were looked upon with disdain, even contempt from medical associations, practitioners, mainstream scientists and clerics. The idea that the human body was permeated or surrounded by an invisible energy. 

Reiki Clinical Studies, Improved Reporting There’s never been a comprehensive list of controlled, evidence-based research that was accessible to the holistic, medical, and scientific communities. 

It wasn’t until 2005 when William Lee Rand, founder and president of the International Center for Reiki Training and a pioneer in worldwide Reiki awareness formed the Center For Reiki Research and developed what is now known as The Touchstone Process.

The Touchstone Process is a peer review method for analyzing the current state of scientific studies done on Reiki programs in hospitals, clinics and hospice facilities throughout the United States. The process of critique is rigorous, impartial, and consistent and incorporates the best practices for scientific review.

Testing in humans performed between 1993 and 2006 showed ratings from Satisfactory to Excellent, all suggesting that the benefit of Reiki treatments was positive in controlling pain levels in humans.

Results of Testing Reiki Treatment

Reiki Passes Tests with Flying Colors There have been many other controlled studies submitted to peer-journals and The Touchstone Process for review. Ailments and disorders that tested favourably to Reiki treatment include:

1. Postoperative pain after tooth extraction 

2. Cognition in6R elderly, related to dementia/Alzheimers 

3. Pre-operative relaxation and post-op pain 

4. Pain in chronically ill patients 

5. Depression and stress 6. Well-being in Reiki practitioners

 According to practitioners, the healing effects are mediated by channeling the universal energy known as qi, pronounced “chi.” In India, this is known as “prana.” This is the same energy involved in tai chi exercise. It is the life force energy that, some believe, surrounds all of us.

Reiki is alleged to aid relaxation, assist in the body’s natural healing processes, and develop emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being.
