January 10, 2013 – NEW INFORMATION
Since the time in which I originally wrote this blog post, I have been introduced to a very important book. It’s not well known in the United States, maybe because it was published in London. In any case, the book is called Healing Research, Holistic Energy Medicine and Spirituality, by Dr. Daniel J. Benor.
It is, I think, a very well put together series of research studies on many aspects of energy research. It needs to be more known! I have personally given a copy of this book to the Director of the Transdisciplinary Holistic Studies Program at The Cleveland Clinic, of which I am a participant. He said he would take it to the Research Department and introduce it to them. Included in this book are controlled studies of the effects of energy healing on bacteria, cells, enzymes, fungi, animals, electrodermal activity, and many other topics. I’m very impressed with it!
I did not know that there was so much research actually documented, and I’m very relieved that now I do know about this book. I encourage all who might be in need of some real science to get a copy of this book.

A: That’s an interesting question. There is both scientific and experiential evidence that Reiki works. Just ask someone who gives Reiki, or the clients who receive it. All will report many stories of significant improvements. I’m included in that – I have plenty of anecdotal evidence from my own experience both as a giver and a receiver of Reiki for me to know conclusively that Reiki works.
As far as scientific evidence, though…it’s time for more people to know that there IS!
Reiki’s effects can be experienced and noted in different ways.
For example, it’s understood scientifically that intention, Reiki and other thought-energy imprints itself on the state of water. Naturopaths know this. They often work with little vials of water that have been imprinted with the energy of different substances to muscle test for allergies and adverse reactions.
Also, a Random Event…
