METHODOLOGY

A Cochrane Systematic Review (the gold standard reviewing research studies) – which searched a large number of databases for clinical trials.
Inclusion criteria: Randomised trials in adults with anxiety or depression or both, with at least one arm treated with Reiki delivered by a trained Reiki practitioner. 3 studies were included that met the above criteria.

RESULTS AND COMMENTS

These studies included subgroups with anxiety and depression as defined by symptom scores and provided data separately for those subgroups. This included only 25 people with anxiety and 17 with depression and 20 more with either anxiety or depression, but which was not specified. There was insufficient evidence from randomised trials to draw any conclusions on whether Reiki is effective for the treatment of anxiety or depression.
