Healing: Our body and our life

Sure, Reiki can heal! There's an abundance of proof. Docs on the Charité, Berlin’s College Hospital, as an example, concluded just a few years in the past that complementary therapies might pace up therapeutic time, cut back the necessity for painkillers and customarily enhance the wellbeing of sufferers. (They might most likely lower prices too, as sufferers might vacate their hospital beds earlier.) Uncertain which remedy to go for, the docs trialled numerous them and analysed the affected person suggestions.

After just a few weeks of Reiki, he discovered occurrences had decreased from 28 instances to 3 or 4 instances a month. And naturally he’s no exception. There's a lot proof that Reiki works.

And plenty of report very comparable outcomes. Which means the anecdotal turns into empirical. Quantifiable. Measurable. Therefore scientific.

So, there's scientific proof that Reiki works. And but, regardless of many theories, there’s no easy scientific clarification of how it really works. After we have a look at the outcomes, the rationale for that turns into clearer: it doesn’t work in a technique however many. Simply as we people might be fairly advanced…
