Reiki in Hospitals

Did you know?
Did you know that since the mid ‘90s hospitals have slowly been integrating Reiki Energy Therapy into their healing programs? Its rise is due to the overwhelming evidence from nurses and physicals who use it. They are seeing consistent results that “makes a patient relaxed, calm and cooperative; relieves acute and chronic pain; boosts the immune system; reduces stress; decreases the need for pain medication; improves sleep and appetite; accelerates the healing process; and has no side effects or contraindications.” (IARP) In fact, it is one of the top three alternative therapies requested by patients in a clinical setting according to an AHA survey. Even Johns Hopkins defines it as “In a Reiki session, the practitioner is seeking to transmit Universal Life Energy to the client. The intention is to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing” (Johns Hopkins).
But what’s the evidence?
Multiple studies have been done testing the validity, effectiveness, and overall worth of including Reiki as a standard practice in hospitals. A study done at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, CT found that Reiki improved patients sleep quality by 86%, reduced pain by 78%, reduced nausea by 80%, and anxiety in expecting mothers by 94%. A master Reiki healer named Julie Motz has been assisting Dr. Mehmet Oz, a noted cardiothoracic surgeon at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, on an extensive number of surgeries in the actual operating room. Most notably, the 11 heart patients that were treated experienced no postoperative depression, which is a normally guaranteed side effect. Their by-pass patients didn’t experience pain or leg weakness afterward and their organ transplants had no cases of organ rejection.
