Reiki has been successfully employed in a wide range of settings: in the home; in the operating room; in palliative care; even in the US military. At Reiki with Roots, we have worked with clients in equally diverse settings.
With regard to reputable research into the benefits of Reiki, a number of small-scale studies reporting positive outcomes are beginning to emerge. For example, studies have suggested that Reiki treatment can reduce pain and anxiety for both cancer and HIV/AIDS patients. Another study using Reiki treatment for heart attack patients has shown an increase in heart rate variability following heart attack, an important indicator of healing and increased resilience.
Alongside this research, there are many interesting testimonials and case studies from individuals who have benefited from Reiki. If you would like to read some of the Reiki with Roots case studies or testimonials, please visit our blog.
