Reiki & the Medical Community – It’s in There!

Reiki & the Medical Community – It’s in There!

I just read a great article in Prevention magazine about a guy who claims to be very open minded but when someone suggested he try Reiki, he thought it was the most ridiculous thing he has ever heard. After a friend of his accredited her quick recovery from surgery to Reiki he was intrigued – after all, she was a health care professional (nurse). Read the rest of the article and find out how he became a believer (link posted below).

What many people do not realize is that many medical professionals including physicians, nurses and physical therapists are becoming Reiki practitioners.  Johnson & Johnson is actually giving scholarships to nurses who want to get certified and hospitals throughout the country  are incorporating Reiki along with Yoga Therapy into their treatment plans.  Here are just a few:

American Cancer Society’s Hope Lodge

Beth Israel Medical Center

Farber Center for Radiation Oncology

Kent State University College of Nursing

Montefiore Children’s Hospital

UCLA Health System

What the hospitals are finding is that they are having better outcomes with surgeries and treatments and their patients are keeping a more positive attitude about their medical conditions. The Yoga Therapy (in bed exercises) helps to reduce symptoms of anxiety, nausea, and constipation, as well as helping the patients deal with pain.  Some hospitals are even offering Reiki and yoga therapy for the care givers and family members to help them relieve stress and the discomfort of spending days in the hospital. Hospice facilities are also using Reiki to help their patients feel more relaxed and comforted about their transition.

Time to get on board and be an active participant in your health and well being!
