A study conducted by UCLA backs that Reiki really does work Using The Touchstone Process. This evidence-based research method was developed by William Lee Rand, founder of the International Center for Reiki Training and unvailed through numerous case studies, Reiki "significantly reduced stress, anxiety and depression". Placebo groups were provided false treatments and "showed no reduction in stress, anxiety or depression." This TouchStone Process as well has validated Reiki to have significantly assisted with other such ailments and disorders as "Post operative pain after tooth extraction, Cognition in elderly, related to dementia/Alzheimers, Pre-operative relaxation and post-op pain, Pain in chronically ill patients, Depression and stress, Well-being in Reiki practitioners."
This articles demonstrates clinical research of Reiki as a complimentary care service and I hope provides a valid working model to those unfamiliar with Reiki. Holistic and complimentary care I feel is essential as forms of preventative medicine the general public has control over to HEAL THEMSELVES. Once we put our health in the hands of solely Western practices, we loose the ability to manage our own health when prescription medications are in our body systems. If more people would consider preventative medicine over symptomatic medicine, the world would have a significantly lower amount of disease and illness as well side-effects illnesses.
