. Sit back, relax, and enjoy receiving this distance energy healing with Reiki. Hospitals are now incorporating this practice as more evidence continues to emerge showing that energy healing has physiological and psychological effects. Below is a video from Dr. Natalie Leigh Dyer providing a distance reiki energy healing session. Dyer is a neuroscientist who studies the power of mind-body medicine for wellness, healing, and prevention of illness and disease. As a research scientist at Harvard Medical School and their Kripalu Center for Yoga Health, Natalie investigates yoga and mindfulness for improving psychological health and wellbeing with Kripalu’s RISE program. As the President of the Center for Reiki Research, Natalie studies the benefits of Reiki on physical and psychological health, and educates Reiki practitioners and the public about current research. Together with over 300 other scientists and physicians, Natalie was the first signee of the Manifesto for a Postmaterialist Science, a declaration for science to move beyond the outdated materialist paradigm. One of hear latest publications titled “A Large-Scale Effectiveness Trial of Reiki for Physical and Psychological Health” which was published in the in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine at the end of 2019, found that a single session of Reiki improves multiple variables that are related to both physical and psychological health. For more details on the study you can look into that specific publication. You can learn more about her and her work by visiting her website, here. It’s great to see this subject continue to gain more popularity, especially within the past five to ten years alone, but it’s always been quite relevant when it comes to healing. Throughout history, in nearly all cultures, reports can be found of individuals who could purportedly heal solely through their caring intentions. What’s even more fascinating is that this type of healing actually has measurable physiological effects, period, and the implications of this type of healing “for basic science epistemology and ontology and for pragmatic efforts to improve health and healing are vast, deep, and perennially intriguing. (source) As far back as 1999, Dr. Jessica Utts, the Chair of the Department of Statistics at the University of California and a professor there since 2008, published a paper in 1999 showing that showing that Mind-Matter research has actually produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helping to prevent heart attacks. (source) All of the research, validity, and perhaps most importantly people’s individual experiences with Reiki and distant healing measures has resulted in multiple hospitals and medical centers adopting the practice. For example, The Johns Hopkins Integrative Medicine Digestive Center in Maryland USA offers Reiki to its patients “to create deep relaxation, to help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms you may be experiencing”.
They don’t explain its mechanisms, but have wisely adopted Reiki among acupuncture, integrative psychotherapy, and therapeutic massage. According to one of Dr. Dyer’s most recent Facebook posts, “Back at Harvard University I ran a study on the nocebo effect and the common cold.
The common cold is caused by thousands of different viruses including rhinoviruses and coronaviruses. We took saliva samples and told half the subjects that their saliva showed they were developing a cold. About a third of the nocebo group went on to actually develop a cold but the other group showed no difference. We saw that their immune response (IgA levels) was effected right after the false diagnosis. We hypothesize that the stress about developing a cold caused this response and increased their likelihood of actually developing a cold. This study was presented at international conferences and will be published this year. It is particularly relevant today.
These types of studies are very rare because they can harm participants. Because of this we have no idea the true extent of the nocebo effect, and probably never will. Your mind is very powerful.” (source) That’s going to be an interesting paper to read.
The mind-body connection is more powerful than we know, not only for distant healing and energy medicine but also for our own physiology and psychology. Cultivating inner-peace and feelings of positivity and joy are no joke, and in a time when we are bombarded with fear and hysteria, these reminders are ever more important. Enjoy the video below, and know that healing at a distance can occur and does have measurable effects, which is why it’s great that one can participate and reap the benefits regardless of where they are in the world. else.
