Reiki in Healthcare

My teacher, Libby Barnett, recently sent a newsletter highlighting three articles on Reiki in healthcare.  The first article reviews the steps taken to develop and implement a Reiki Training Program at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital.  This is a well-written article that delves into the logistics of creating a Training Program for sharing Reiki with patients, staff, and family members.

The other two articles are older, but equally worth taking the time to review.  One relates to the application of Reiki for work-related stress for nurses and the other recounts the effects of Reiki on older adults.
