Evidence of our work

By Sandy Priester.

LifeSpark has a 15-year track record of providing Reiki and Healing Touch to cancer patients and their caregivers.  Our therapies have a demonstrated impact on physical and mental well-being.

In June 2019, LifeSpark, in collaboration with UCHealth’s Anschutz Cancer Center, conducted an informal survey of the results of Reiki and Healing Touch while receiving chemo.  35 people participated in the survey.  On average, after just one session, observed results showed a 35% decrease in pain, a 67% decrease in stress, and a 61% decrease in anxiety.

Other evidence of the benefits of our therapies include:

  • 95% of past LifeSpark participants say that the sessions were valuable, and they would refer others to our program.
  • A 2013 study of 108 LifeSpark participants showed that nearly 80% experienced highly statistically significant improvement in emotional and physical well-being.
  • Nationally, nearly 150 research studies provide evidence of the effectiveness of Reiki and Healing Touch.  Studies indicate that these therapies lower stress, depression, pain, nausea, and fatigue. Studies also demonstrate that these therapies are safe, and they produce no side effects.
  • Many hospitals across the country have a Reiki or Healing Touch program. These include national leaders in cancer care including: Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (NY), Johns Hopkins Hospital, (MD), Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (MA), Cleveland Clinic (OH), and Bringham & Women’s Hospital (MA).

In a world where there is a medication for every malady, LifeSpark’s Reiki and Healing Touch therapies offer a comforting solution without drugs or side effects.
