Promising Numbers

Two months ago Gateway for Cancer Research, an organization that helps fund research on clinical trials for cancer posted information about an informal study of cancer patients receiving Reiki at a university hospital cancer infusion center. They reported “much to great” improvement for:

  • Relaxation (89%)
  • Anxiety and worry (75%)
  • Improved attitude (75%)
  • Improved mood (81%)
  • Improved sleep (43%)
  • Reduced pain (45%)
  • Reduced isolation and loneliness (38%)
  • Improved mood (30%)

Gateway also reported that a sampling of the latest research shows Reiki may be particularly beneficial for cancer patients and that researchers concluded: “Reiki results in a broad range of symptomatic benefits, including improvements in common cancer-related symptoms.”
