Reiki practice offers profound support to patients, family and staff. Reiki is completely unregulated (as it should be), so Reiki credentials are meaningless. Many who consider themselves Reiki masters have less training and experience than my beginning students. That makes it hard to find Reiki professionals or teachers who are able to collaborate effectively in conventional healthcare. That’s why I offer the Reiki & Medicine Intensive.
Communication can be challenging in that Reiki practice is often unnecessarily wrapped in New Age concepts and language. I learned to practice Reiki in 1986 as the practice was brought from Japan to the US, before it was “adopted” by the New Age community. Since then, I’ve been at the forefront of integrating Reiki practice into conventional health care, including Harvard and Yale medical schools, the NIH, and New York-Presbyterian/Columbia.
The following articles will give you a basic overview of how Reiki practice can support conventional health care.
I give presentations and offer consults to help hospitals and businesses bring the benefits of Reiki practice to their staff. Email me to discuss the difference Reiki training can make at your workplace.
My book, REIKI: A Comprehensive Guide includes several chapters on Reiki in conventional health care, including Reiki research, and a chapter devoted to Reiki and science.
