Yes, there is – and far more than you might think! You could check out some of it right now by just keying in Reiki research into your web browser. You’ll be surprised at what you’ll find!
Read what the UK Reiki Federation Research Co-ordinator has to say on the subject, and at the foot of that page you can click on the link that will allow you to download a PDF version of “Reiki – The Scientific Evidence”. This is a catalogue of over a hundred clinical trials examining the performance of Reiki (and there are also over forty published articles on the subject of Reiki).
No. It contains clinical trials and articles from around the world. Quality science is not something that is unique to the UK.
No, and it probably never will be! This may be news to you, but new Reiki clinical trials and articles are being published every week of the year, and will be added to the document as soon possible.
Click on the link to the Research page in the top menu, and at the foot of that page download the document, “Reiki – The Scientific Evidence”. Look in the contents for whatever illness or condition you are researching.
Another good place to look would be Google Scholar. Go into Google and key in scholar in the search window: a link to Google Scholar will then appear at the top of the next page. Click on it, and you’ll then be in Google Scholar itself. Key in Reiki and the condition (e.g. cancer), press ‘return’ and see what you get.
Finally, again in “Reiki – The Scientific Evidence, look in the contents page for “other possible reference sources”, and follow those links.
Some are available to download in full, free of charge, but they seem to be in the minority. Each trial will indicate the cost and how you can pay for it, online.
On the other hand, there is a way of looking at a summary of a clinical trial free of charge; it’s called an abstract, and they can be found on the USA’s National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI). Their website is www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov. No account is needed for access to this website.
