As we need to put the right foods in our body to help it thrive, we also need to have our vibration aligned for healing. The National Institute of Health recognizes the benefit of energy healing and funds studies on various energy modalities such as Reiki. Many major universities and hospitals also employ Reiki practitioners to work with their cancer patients as they find that it helps reduce side effects and enhance healing.

The Japanese word, "Reiki," means "universal life force energy." The ancient art of Reiki energy healing includes the laying on of hands where the universal life force energy is channeled through a practitioner to help release blockages within a person that can cause imbalances such as emotional distress or physical illnesses. What Reiki does is to promote deep relaxation and stress reduction which can awaken the body’s own natural healing abilities. During a Reiki session, you remain fully clothed while the hands are held above the body. Reiki is not meant to replace any conventional medical treatments that you are doing, but is used as a wonderful adjunct. There are many studies on Reiki that shows that it can reduce the side effects from many medical treatments as well as expedite recovery from illness or surgery. A Reiki session can also incorporate other healing modalities such as tuning forks or karmic clearing. 

If you chose to receive Reiki, it can be done as a stand-alone or in combination with a nutrition consult. I also like to teach my patients some energy medicine techniques that they can do at home to help them on their journey to self-empowerment and better health.


There are several studies that have been done by the National Institute of Health (NIH) on Reiki Healing and Health. The following is one example published in a 2014 Pain Management Nursing Journal article entitled, "Effect of Reiki Therapy on Pain and Anxiety in Adults: An In-depth Literature Review of Randomized Trials with Effect Size Calculations."
