Reiki and Energy Work

Reiki and Energy Work

A Japanese practice known as Reiki has garnered attention in various evidence-based studies in helping an individual's physical and mental well-being. It is a therapeutic modality that can be added to medical practices therefore known as a complimentary therapy that is gentle and suitable for various individuals, even those who are in fragile states. This form of complementary therapy is now embraced worldwide and even in hospital settings such as their surgery departments. Furthermore, it has shown to be a more potent placebo in various controlled trials for pain, and various other studies have shown promising effects on anxiety, depression, and stress reduction.
