The Science of Reiki

Reiki is defined as a gentle, hands-on, completely non-invasive healing practice which promotes balance and well-being, the restoration of harmony, and provides deep relaxation and a sense of clarity. Its name comes from the Japanese words “rei,” which translates into universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki involves the light touch of the practitioner’s hands on or slightly above the patient’s body.


Mind-Body Medicine is being practiced at hospitals across America, including the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, Cleveland Clinic, New York’s Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Penn Medicine in Philadelphia. These are in a growing group of hospitals that recognize the efficacy of integrative medicine in the clinical setting and on positive patient outcomes.


According to the CTCA website, Reiki is “based on a relatively new, rapidly developing area of care called Psychoneuroimmunology, or PNI. PNI is the study of how the mind affects the body. "Psycho" refers to your thinking, emotions and mood states. "Neuro" refers to the neurological and neuroendocrine systems in your body. "Immunology" refers to your cellular structures and immune system.” 

Hospital Findings:

At Sloan Kettering, Reiki is used to treat depression, anxiety, fatigue, insomnia, stress, nausea, weight gain and loss, pain, muscle tension, and headache. Cleveland Clinic also treats all types of cancer, fertility issues, Parkinson’s disease, psychological illnesses, fibromyalgia, pre - and post-op patients, chronic pain, digestive problems, and stress-related diseases with Reiki.

Cleveland Clinic’s Integrative Therapies department believes Reiki’s many benefits include:  

  • Peaceful deep relaxation,

  • Dissolution of Energy Blockages and Tension,

  • Detoxification of the Body,

  • Support for the well-being of those who have had surgery or are receiving traditional medicine,

  • Supply universal life-force energy to the body,

  • Stimulate the body’s immune system, help to relieve pain,

  • Stimulate tissue and bone healing after injury or surgery

Penn Medicine’s patient's report that Reiki:

  • Reduces anxiety,

  • Increases relaxation,

  • Relieves stress,

  • Promotes feelings of peace, wellness and balance,

  • Energizes and rejuvenates the mind and body,

  • Relieves pain and discomfort,

  • Relieves some of the side effects of cancer treatment,

  • Brings additional nurturing and support to the treatment visit,  

  • Creates a calm and positive environment


Reiki is not specific to any particular types of diseases or conditions. Because it works on the entire self – mind, body and emotions – and because it is universal life force energy, it may be successful in all types of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual healing, depending on your needs.
