How Reiki Helps Cancer Patients


The American cancer society recognizes Reiki as a safe and complementary treatment for cancer.


A study published in Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine found that Reiki brought about significant levels of pain relief, anxiety and depression reduction, improvements in sleep quality, relaxation and general well-being for cancer patients. In another study focusing on treating cancer-related fatigue, it was found that participants who had Reiki treatments during the test period reported significant improvements in their quality of life and significant decreases in tiredness and anxiety.


Many cancer patients report that Reiki has helped them relax and have an increased sense of well-being and that it has helped them on their path towards healing.
