Reiki in Hospitals
"More hospitals offer alternative therapies for mind,
body, spirit," L. Gill, USA Today
An article published in
the USA Today in 2008 reported that in 2007 15% of U.S. hospitals (over 800)
offered Reiki as a regular part of patient services. These treatments are
offered by Reiki trained physicians, therapists, and nurses who often are part
of the hospital staff.
“Reiki is one
of the leading safe energy medicine approaches.” C.
Norman Shealy, M.D. Ph.D. Founder, American Holistic Medical Association
A research study at Hartford Hospital in Hartford,
Connecticut showed increased overall patient satisfaction with the treatments.
The findings indicated that Reiki improved patient sleep by 86 percent, reduced
pain by 78 percent, reduced nausea by 80 percent, and reduced anxiety during
pregnancy by 94 percent.
In the same study 75% of the patients who participated said that they would
“definitely want service again”.
