Since 2016, I have partnered with the New York State Private Grant Association to conduct clinical studies on the benefits of Reiki.
I have so far hosted 3 different Reiki Studies - each with a different theme and aim - and received volunteers at my space Heart like the Sun, where they received a number of Reiki sessions within a set period of time.
The volunteers were evaluated all throughout the intake period and audio recordings* were made of the volunteers answers of set questionnaires at both their intake and release.
This has been an incredible experience for me in confirming - what I already knew - that Reiki is a powerful healing tool. But more importantly is the bridge of communication and understanding that is established between the Reiki world and the conventional western medicine world.
100% of the volunteers reported having a satisfactory experience and all, except only one person ever, reported having healing or relief of the issue they came in to heal. The one person who did not report healing still reported that it was beneficial in making her relax.
New studies may become a available so stay tuned to see if you fit the requirements to be a volunteer.
I usually let people know on Facebook so make sure to follow Heart like the Sun on there (link below).
*the volunteers' identities are kept confidential.
