Reiki
   Reiki is an integrative, non-invasive holistic energy therapy.  Reiki has been shown to be effective in medical settings to promoting relaxation, enhancing wound healing, and relieving anxiety and depression. Published qualitative and quantitative research demonstrates the positive effect of Reiki for pain reduction, relaxation and sense of well-being. Within the nursing profession, Reiki has been successfully used as a stress management tool. Reiki can be successfully used for cancer chemo patients to reduce side effects and increase vitality and overall well-being.
