Description

About Reiki Energy Medicine

Reiki is an ancient, hands-on healing art with origins in the Tibetan sutras. It has been used primarily by individuals in a daily practice that helps recharge, realign, and rebalance energy in the body. Today Reiki is joining other complementary therapies in the conventional settings of hospitals, hospices, counseling centers, emergency rooms, intensive care units. Nurses, physical therapists, surgeons, midwives, and anesthetists report that Reiki can help manage pain and promote healing. Counselors and caregivers treating those with terminal illness find that Reiki gives patients an increased physical, emotional, and psychological ability to cope. Reiki Energy Medicine explains the body's energy system, and describes how Reiki can be used in a variety of settings to balance energy and create the conditions needed for healing.

Reiki Energy Medicine is the first book to show how this ancient art of touch therapy can work within our mainstream health care system.

As our health-care system challenges institutions to offer high-quality but cost-effective service, Reiki can be an important tool that can help maximize patient care and minimize recovery time.

Reiki does not require complicated techniques or extensive training: practitioners of many disciplines are able to easily incorporate it into their specialties.

ALTERNATIVE HEALTH

“This powerful book is a splendid contribution to the emerging field of complementary medicine. Reiki Energy Medicine presents a simple, effective, and ancient method through which the natural healing potential of the body can be stimulated, enhancing the efficacy of conventional treatment. Barnett and Babb elegantly describe the medicine of the future.”
--JOAN BORYSENKO, PH.D., AUTHOR OF MINDING THE BODY, MENDING THE MIND

“With a clarity and conviction born of experience, Barnett and Babb show us that there is an energy and intelligence behind our natural impulse to heal, and Reiki gives us access to that energy.”
--AGNES LATTIMER, M.D., MEDICAL DIRECTOR EMERITUS, COOK COUNTY HOSPITAL

Reiki Energy Medicine provides a form with which to reintegrate healing touch into our vast array of therapeutic techniques. Reiki’s utter simplicity, coupled with its potentially powerful effect, compels us to acknowledge the concept of a universal healing energy. Indeed, this energy may be what empowers all of our therapeutic interventions, whether they involve a scalpel, a pill, or a compassionate touch.”
--BETTINA PEYTON, M.D.

Reiki Energy Medicine is a fine introduction to a technique that can truly enhance our capacity to make our patients well. I wholeheartedly recommend it.”
--GEORGE REMISOVSKY, M.D., OB/GYN

The human body, more than just a collection of functioning parts, is a flowing energy field, continually reorganizing and restructuring itself. All conditions of physical disease are rooted in this energy system. Reiki, an ancient art of touch therapy with origins in the Tibetan sutras, provides a means to recharge, realign, and rebalance our energy field to create the conditions needed for an integrated functioning of the body’s healing systems. Reiki Energy Medicine is the first book to show how Reiki is being brought into mainstream health care.

As our health care system challenges institutions to offer high-quality but cost-effective service, Reiki is being recognized as an important tool to maximize patient care and minimize recovery time. Unlike other complementary healing methods, Reiki does not require complicated techniques or extensive training; practitioners of many disciplines can easily incorporate it into their specialties. Physicians, nurses, rehabilitation therapists, surgeons, midwives, and anesthetists report that Reiki can help manage pain and promote healing. Counselors and caregivers find that Reiki gives patients with terminal illnesses an increased physical and emotional ability to cope. Their stories make it clear that Reiki is one of medicine’s brightest hopes for a more compassionate future of healing and comfort.
