“…Systematic, intensive and increasingly complex studies of the effects of Reiki techniques are being conducted nowadays in Japan (and other Asian countries), the United States of America, Australia, Latin America and Europe. The vast majority of them continue to confirm the positive effect of Reiki in various areas of clinical practices (oncology, cardiology, postoperative rehabilitation, bone surgery, psychotherapy, endoscopy, and others) and reinforce that Reiki therapy is effective for pain and anxiety, positively affects mood, body and mind, with healing effects, provides emotional and spiritual balance, reduces work-related stress, helps in managing occupational burnouts, improves intrinsic comfort, well-being and health, reduces depression, and may be used as a means of self-care (Birocco et al, 2012;Erdogan & Cinar, 2016;Midilli & Gunduzoglu, 2016;Notte, Fazzini, & Mooney, 2016;Salles, Vannucci, Salles, & Da Silva, 2014;Thrane & Cohen, 2014).…”
