Reiki is one of the top three complementary in-patient therapies in U.S. hospitals according to an American Hospital Association survey. It is used in over 800 hospitals throughout the U.S. to enhance patients' care. Of those hospitals, a number of best rated hospitals have Reiki programs, a few of which are:
Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, New York, New York
Portsmouth Medical Center in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, has been offering 15-minute Reiki sessions pre and post-op since 1995. They now give over 2,000 sessions a year to patients in every department. Many patients request their hospital for surgery because of their Reiki program. The data they've collected for quality control indicates patients are taking less pain medication and leaving the hospital sooner. Both patients and staff report greater satisfaction.
Alice Moore, RN,BS, Reiki Master, states in her article, Reiki Energy Medicine: Enhancing the Healing Process, "Patients have been very pleased to be offered an option that is so relaxing and helps decrease their anxiety as well as their discomfort."
There are also cancer centers and skilled nursing facilities that have Reiki programs for their patients. There is an overwhelming abundance of anecdotal evidence that confirms the benefits of Reiki. Nurses and physicians who use Reiki in the clinical setting consistently say it:
Makes a patient relaxed, calm and cooperative
Relieves acute and chronic pain
Boosts the immune system
Decreases the need for pain medication
Improves sleep and appetite
Accelerates the healing process
Has no side effects or contraindications
Reduces many of the unwanted side effects of radiation and chemotherapy, including nausea and fatigue
