Reiki is achieving mainstream recognition for the powerful benefits it provides as a complimentary therapy to conventional medicine. The use of Reiki in conventional medicine has become even more popular as health care providers see the positive results Reiki provides for improved patient care. Reiki is a technique which reduces stress and promotes relaxation, thereby enhancing the body’s natural ability to heal itself. It is commonly practiced in two major ways: With a laying-on of hands – the hands lightly touching or held near to the body, often combined with visualizations; and with meditation, prayer or other focused intent, again often combined with visualizations.

This method of enhancement is considered as part of ‘Integrative Medicine’, based upon a model of health and wellness rather than on disease.  Reiki is complimentary to the practice of medicine that focuses on the whole person and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, healthcare professionals and disciplines to achieve optimal health and healing.

Bio-field Therapies such as Reiki intended to affect the energy fields that surround and penetrate the human body. Reiki is the art and science of healing that addresses care of the whole person—body, mind and spirit. The practice of holistic medicine integrates conventional and complementary therapies to promote optimal health, and prevent and treat disease by addressing contributing factors.

This hands on method of treatment is suggested for:

Palliative care

Is an area of healthcare that focuses on relieving and preventing the suffering of patients. Reiki is appropriate for patients in all disease stages, including those undergoing treatment for curable illnesses and those living with chronic diseases, as well as patients who are nearing the end of life. Reiki can be included in a plan of care to relieve suffering in all areas of a patient’s life.

Hospice care

Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care at the end of life, hospice care, which often includes Reiki, involves a team-oriented approach of expert medical care, pain management, and emotional and spiritual support expressly tailored to the patient’s wishes.  Emotional and spiritual support is also extended to the family and loved ones.

general wellness

Integrative medicine can be used to control pain, reduce anxiety, reduce side effects and improve quality of life.  Treatments can act as a support to ailments such as flu, infections and other minor condition.

relaxation

Reiki improves sleep, reduces overwhelming feelings of tension, and provides overall feeling of well-being after treatments.
