What is Medical Reiki™

Medical Reiki™

As a Certified Medical Reiki™ Master, I have been trained to safely administer Reiki to clients in medical settings such as, but not limited to; Operating Rooms – working unobtrusively with the surgical team, Chemo Suites, and Labor & Delivery Rooms and Hospice.

Medical Reiki™ Masters are a select group of practitioners trained by Raven Keyes, the first Reiki Master to bring Reiki into the operating room of Dr. Mehmet C. Oz.  Raven continues to work closely with Dr. Sheldon M. Feldman, Chief of Breast Cancer Surgery, and other doctors at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital providing Reiki to patients before, during and after surgeries.  Her award-winning book The Healing Power of Reiki has been featured on the Columbia Surgery blog and is available on the New York-Presbyterian Columbia University Medical Center website.

Clinical studies of Reiki in medical situations indicate that Reiki not only helps to accelerate healing process but can also reduce the need for pain medication following surgery.  Overall, surgical procedures tend to go much smoother for the team of doctors when a Medical Reiki Master is present.  Introduction of Reiki during medical procedures can help facilitate a positive experience for the both the patient and the family as the Reiki Master’s presence provides reassurance that their loved one is receiving exceptional care.

As Medical Reiki™ Masters we do not diagnose conditions, prescribe or perform medical treatments, nor do we interfere with the treatment of a licensed medical professional.

Our mission is to support the patient and/or caregiver in a nurturing holistic way during what is often a very difficult and challenging time.
