Reiki & Western Medicine
Did you know that as of 2008, over 800 hospitals in the U.S. offered Reiki?
Non-western modalities such as Reiki, massage and acupuncture are now called "complementary" (as opposed to "alternative") within the Western health care system, a small but important step forward.
Reiki's role is truly complementary, as it fortifies the body's immune system and encourages the nervous system to move away from a distressed state of "fight or flight" and toward a healing state of "rest & digest."
Within the medical setting, Reiki is most often used before and after surgery, as well as during chemotherapy. Reiki helps to increase patients' resilience in the face of these extremely draining medical procedures.
Improved sleep is one of the most commonly reported effects of Reiki, and the body self-heals best while we are asleep. In addition, Reiki is calming and centering, which helps patients to be more positive and to make better decisions.
