Reiki - Universal Life Force Energy
Some of the benefits derived from the Reiki treatments includes stress reduction, revitalization of the body and promotes relaxation.

Reiki also promotes from within the qualities of love, compassion, peace, growth, goodwill, wholeness and serenity.

Reiki energy is channeled from the practitioner to the patient in a gentle effective manner.

A trained Reiki master can initiate anyone into the practice of Reiki.  There are no requirements other than the desire to assist oneself or others.

My personal perception and experience is that Reiki is to the body and Soul, what meditation is to the mind!

Biofield Therapies: Helpful Or Full Of Hype? Review Looks At Reiki, Therapeutic Touch And Healing Touch

ScienceDaily (Oct. 29, 2009) — Biofield therapies, which claim to use subtle energy to stimulate the body's healing process, are promising
complementary interventions for reducing the intensity of pain in a number of conditions, reducing anxiety for hospitalized patients and reducing
agitated behaviors in dementia, over and above what standard treatments can achieve. However, longer-term effects are less clear.

Dr. Shamini Jain, from the UCLA Division of Cancer Prevention and Control Research, and Dr. Paul Mills, from the Department
of Psychiatry at the University of California, and the Moores Comprehensive Cancer Center in San Diego, US, publish their review1
of the science behind biofield therapies online this week in Springer's International Journal of Behavioral Medicine.

A significant number of patients use biofield therapies -- Reiki, therapeutic touch and healing touch -- despite very little research
proving that they work. These techniques have been used over millennia in various cultural communities to heal physical and
mental disorders. They have only recently been under the scrutiny of current Western scientific methods.

In a detailed review of 66 clinical studies looking at biofield therapies in different patient populations with a range of ailments, Jain and Mills examine
the strength of the evidence for the efficacy of these complementary therapies. They show that overall, published work on biofield therapies is of
average quality -- in scientific terms.

Bearing that in mind, they find strong evidence that biofield therapies reduce pain intensity in free-living populations, and moderate evidence that
they are effective at lowering pain in hospitalized patients as well as in patients with cancer.

There is also moderate evidence that these therapies ease agitated behaviors in dementia and moderate evidence that they reduce anxiety in
hospitalized patients. There is inconclusive evidence for the efficacy of biofield therapies on symptoms of fatigue and quality of life in cancer patients,
as well as for overall pain reduction, and anxiety management in cardiovascular patients.

The authors conclude that there is a strong need for further high-quality studies and suggest specific areas for further research. They add: "In order
to better inform patients of the potential benefits or non-benefits of these biofield-based interventions, clinicians and scientists within behavioral
medicine should familiarize themselves with current theory, practice and research of such techniques."
