Reiki & Science

Reiki is a practice that is often viewed through a holistic and spiritual lens, but there has been some scientific research exploring its potential benefits. It’s important to note that the scientific community’s consensus on Reiki is still evolving, and some studies are inconclusive. I will say that similarly, there is no scientific instrument that can measure LOVE. However, there IS research showing the effects on organs in response to both love and reiki.  Here are some other scientific perspectives and references on Reiki:

Electromagnetic Fields and Healing:

 Some proponents of Reiki propose that the energy transferred during a Reiki session interacts with the body’s electromagnetic fields. This interaction is believed to restore balance, reduce stress, and promote relaxation. Electromagnetic fields are known to influence cellular activity and communication within the body.

Subtle Energy and Biofields:

Reiki is based on the concept of a subtle energy that flows through and around the body. This energy is often referred to as the “life force energy,” “chi,” or “prana.” In scientific terms, it may be related to the electromagnetic fields produced by the body’s cells and tissues. This energy is believed to support physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.

Pain management

Some research suggests that Reiki may have a positive impact on pain management. A study published in Pain Management Nursing in 2017 found that Reiki reduced pain and improved the quality of life in cancer patients.

(Othman, S., et al. (2017). The effects of reiki therapy on pain and quality of life of patients with cancer. Pain Management Nursing, 18(2), 87-94.)

Psychological effects

Studies have reported physiological changes during Reiki sessions, such as a decrease in heart rate and blood pressure, as well as an increase in heart rate variability, which is associated with a relaxed state.

(Baldwin, A. L., & Schwartz, G. E. (2006). Personal interaction with a Reiki practitioner decreases noise-induced microvascular damage in an animal model. The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, 12(1), 15-22.)

It’s crucial to approach Reiki with an open mind and consider it as a complementary therapy. It should not replace conventional medical treatment when needed. While many people report positive experiences with Reiki, we do not claim to be “the one and only” method of healing.
