Science and Reiki are a difficult mix; therefore, scientists who want to study these phenomena are generally isolated and stereotyped as too weird, if not crazy.

This is why I consider the ones that have the courage to do it, as brave pioneers that overlooked the risk of losing prestige and/or status. (I know there are many low-quality studies and quackery in this area of research as well).

So far we know that biofields, or electromagnetic energy human fields, are a strong and vital part of ourselves. But the specific and exacts characteristics or physiology remain still unclear.

First, we must shift some paradigms about basic human physiology and study and integrate some concepts like semiconduction, tensegrity and the electromagnetic frequencies of the body.

The Living Matrix

A new concept regarding semiconduction, tensegrity, and biologic liquid crystals; and as a result of those characteristics, the body communicates through connective tissue and the cellular cytoskeleton.

This concept gives insight about how acupuncture and several alternative therapies work, and their intrinsic relationship with the electrical body.

Extremely low frequencies

Evidence suggests that healing energies are set in the 2-20 Hertz range. A common pattern is the specific 7,83 Hz frequency. This one has been detected in some studies regarding energy healing, and is also the same fundamental frequency of the Schumann Resonances.

In conclusion, the standarization of a Reiki randomized controlled trial is still far from arriving, because scientists are still approaching this phenomenon from different angles and then determine which might give more information about it.

What is Reiki Feature Hands

So, what is Reiki?

Reiki is a hands-on healing technique, whose effects are given through energy channeling, and ultimately it's a self-knowledge tool.

Updating the Traditional Human Senses

Nowadays, it is inaccurate to determine that the human body has only 5 senses. So here is a brief list that goes from proprioception to psychic phenomena.
Relaxation Response

The Relaxation Response

The relaxation response refers to the body and mind changes that happen when someone achieves a simultaneous physically relaxed and mentally alert state.

Avoiding Placebo: Biofield therapies on non-human recipients

In 2012 seven top-notch biofield scientists reunited in a Symposium which was part of the International Research Congress on Integrative Medicine and Health in Portland, Oregon. They discussed the present and future of biofield research.
Cortisol Energy

Reiki and Cortisol

Even though the Relaxation Response is enhanced during a Reiki therapy, this doesn’t always mean a low cortisol level.
Reiki and Pain

Reiki and Pain management

Research on pain control and modulation when applying Reiki is giving promising results. The relaxation response and pain might be linked.
