How Reiki Helps Cancer Patients.

Reiki, a stress reduction and relaxation technique, has become a subject of popular for cancer patients everywhere. Studies and anecdotal evidence has shown that, in addition to promoting relaxation among patients, Reiki can also be used to encourage healing and provide other benefits. Reiki can help with side effects of medications and treatment, sleep and stress. It can help to keep focus and a healthy state of mind.

Reiki, a mind body therapy, is a practice that helps restore the balance between the mind, body and soul, and it creates in-depth healing on all levels — spiritual, mental and physical.

Ongoing research has shown that mind-body therapy can improve quality of life for those with a life-limited illness, such as cancer, in a number of ways including:

  • Reduction of pain
  • Reduction in chemotherapy side effects
  • Reduction of stress and anxiety

Reiki (an alternative therapy) is one of the most widely recognized mind body therapies which works in conjunction with regular medical or psychological treatment. Reiki is a non-invasive therapy that passes subtle energy from one being to another to help promote well-being.
