REIKI RESEARCHSUPPORTING THE THEORY
REIKI RESEARCH GIVES CREDIBILITY
Medical professionals and scientists, however, are often looking for more evidence before they accept Reiki.
One of the Federation’s objectives is to help provide information on the type of research that can provide this evidence.
We have set up a dedicated research group to support this. The team has started to collect and evaluate the scientific studies and reports of clinical trials already done on Reiki and to compile them in a comprehensive list.
Each paper is evaluated in terms of the study design, the results obtained and whether it contributes to a robust evidence base showing that Reiki is effective before being added.
