Reiki Is Better Than Placebo and Has Broad Potential as a Complementary Health Therapy

This study reviews the available clinical studies of Reiki to determine whether there is evidence for Reiki providing more than just a placebo effect. The available English-language literature of Reiki was reviewed, specifically for peer-reviewed clinical studies with more than 20 participants in the Reiki treatment arm, controlling for a placebo effect. Of the 13 suitable studies, 8 demonstrated Reiki being more effective than placebo, 4 found no difference but had questionable statistical resolving power, and only one provided clear evidence for not providing benefit. Viewed collectively, these studies provide reasonably strong support for Reiki being more effective than placebo. From the information currently available, Reiki is a safe and gentle “complementary” therapy that activates the parasympathetic nervous system to heal body and mind. It has potential for broader use in management of chronic health conditions, and possibly in postoperative recovery. Research is needed to optimize the delivery of Reiki.

I can attest to the one time a Reiki healer friend worked on my right knee's torn meniscus. It was torn many years ago, so that knee has been chronically painful to lesser or greater degree. After working on it for 5 or 10 minutes or so the pain disappeared. The knee remained pain-free for about two months. So not a permanent fix, but much appreciated at the time.

But not all Reiki healers are honest or competent - so take care. My friend charged nothing for the healing.
May all seek, find and follow the Path of Buddhas.
