Double Blind Study Shows Reiki Works

Updated: Sep 20, 2021

Distance healing has a significant effect, and this has been shown in many research studies!

⁣One such study, cited below, used a double-blind, randomized design (the best kind!) to study the effects of distance healing.⁣

⁣The study measured various outcomes between a control group of patients with AIDS, who received standard treatment, and a group that received standard treatment and distance healing.⁣

⁣Patients were randomly assigned to one of the two groups. They did not know if they received distance healing or not. (This removes the possibility of the Placebo effect.)⁣

⁣The results left no room for doubt about the effect of distance healing. Six months into the study, a chart review revealed that the group that received distance healing:⁣

🔸had less AIDS-related illnesses⁣

🔸required less visits to the doctor or hospital⁣

🔸were in a better mood⁣

⁣This study, and the many others like it, give proof that distance healing techniques such as Reiki can have a meaningful impact on health.
