GREAT ARTICLE BY SHARON YESKEL ON THE INTERNATIONAL REIKI WEBSITE
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Reiki practice, which began in Japan with the teachings of Mikao Usui in the early 1920's, has found its way into mainstream healthcare in the United States. Reiki is currently practiced at many hospitals around the country including Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and New York Presbyterian Hospital (New York City), the Cleveland Clinic and locally Reiki is offered to patients at Raritan Bay Medical Center (RBMC) in Perth Amboy and Old Bridge, New Jersey. As part of the Division of Integrative Medicine at RBMC, I have the privilege of visiting patients in their hospital rooms and offering Reiki sessions.

Reiki (pronounced RAY-KEY) is a spiritual healing practice administered by light touch (or hands above the body) to a fully clothed recipient to promote balance on all levels body, mind, and spirit. Reiki treatments are non invasive.There is no pressure or manipulation. There are no medical contraindications. Reiki treatments easily combine with any medical treatment or procedure.There is no religion or dogma associated with Reiki. To receive a Reiki treatment, you just have to be open-minded and willing to give it a try.


A session can take place in a private treatment room on a massage table with the glow of candles and soft, soothing music playing. Reiki treatment can also be given while sitting in a chair or resting in a hospital bed. A quiet setting is preferable, but not necessary.I have offered Reiki to attendees of health fairs while people around us are talking and loud music is playing. As the recipient feels the calm, peaceful feeling of Reiki hands, they easily tune out the surrounding noises. This is also true when I see patients in their hospital rooms. The typical busy hospital day continues outside the room. The patient lets go and relaxes.


The Reiki practitioner places hands lightly or just above the recipient's body and gently moves her hands to different positions on the head, neck, shoulders, front and back of torso, arms and legs.A treatment can last for just a few minutes or up to an hour depending on the person's need. In the hospital we typically offer 15-minute treatments.


Warmth, coolness or a gentle pulsing from the practitioner's hands are the most typical sensations that are felt.
