Reiki in hospitals - is it in yours?

According to a UCLA study, more than 60 hospitals in the U.S. now offer Reiki as part of their services. Many hospitals also offer Reiki instruction for nurses.

Here is a partial list of hospitals and medical centres that offer Reiki for cancer patients:

Sloan Kettering (they also offer medical Qigong)

Yale-New Haven

Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Institute

Brigham and Women’s Hospital

Columbia University

Johns Hopkins Hospital

University of Maryland

University of Pennsylvania Health System

University of Maryland Medical Center

The Cleveland Clinic

New York University Medical Center

And here is a PDF listing some others.

There are a number of major hospitals and medical centres on this list. Good news for patients and care givers, I should think. See why it's good news in my earlier post, Study Finds Reiki is Helpful to Cancer Patients.
