The healing art of Reiki, once quarunteened and ostresized far from western mainstream collective consciousness, is now growing in popularity and acceptenace in hospitals throughout the once uninterested United States as the American medical community is beginning to understand the effectiveness of the treatments and also the increase in post Reiki patient satisfaction. Today, many U.S. hospitals now include Reiki in their patient services.
A research study performed at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut concludes Reiki treatments have improved patient sleep by 86 percent, reduced pain by 78 percent, reduced nausea by 80 percent, and reduced anxiety during pregnancy by 94 percent. 75% of the patients who participated in the study also said that they would “definitely want service again”, as reported by the U.S. paper USA Today in September 2012.
Over 800 hospitals now offer Reiki as a regular part of patient services in the United States. Following is a sample of the hospitals offering Reiki healing services and this number is expected to continue to grow as once seemingly unpenatrable western consciusness structures open and broaden as we continue our journey through the age of information.
