Reiki is becoming increasingly popular in hospitals all over the world. More than 700 hospitals in the United States offer Reiki as a standard part of patient treatment.
Hundreds of nurses in the United States are trained in Reiki and use this method during routine care for their patients.Most of the nurses take training in a hospital where they work or in a private Reiki practice such as Reiki Dome. Usually, the Reiki programs are offered by volunteers or paid by the hospital programs. Anyone interested in volunteering to bring Reiki to hospitals is encouraged to help.
Patients who receive Reiki treatment once a week feel more relaxed and energized. They are less likely to get sick, and easily deal with stress. This method clears negative energy, improves energy flow in the body, and increases person’s supply of energy.
Many patients decide to take Reiki training so that they can continue self-treatment on a regular basis. Learning how to help yourself is valuable and efficient because most insurance companies do not cover Reiki treatments.
According to a recent study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, hospital patients are willing to pay for alternative medicine services such as Reiki treatments.
