    Reiki Research

"Energy can neither be created nor destroyed; rather, it transforms from one form to another."

the Physics Law of Conservation of Energy. This is precisely what Reiki accomplishes, it transforms blocked "sick" energy into flowing "healthy" energy.

Science and Quantum Physics unveil the simple truth that the human body is made of energy. This actualization confirms the importance and relevance of healing the energetic body with the energy medicine of Reiki.



Scientific Explanation for Reiki


  There is a scientific explanation for Reiki that is based on scientific studies and factual information. This explanation has been presented as a testable hypothesis by James Oschman, Ph.D.

Dr. Oschman is a scientist with a conventional background who became interested in the practice of energy medicine. Through research, he discovered a number of important scientific studies that point to a scientific basis for energy medicine based on the laws of physics and biology. “Science and the Human Energy Field.”


  The electrical currents that run through every part of the human body provide the basis for Dr. Oschman’s hypothesis. These currents are present in the nervous system, organs, and cells of the body. For instance, the electrical signals that trigger the heartbeat travel throughout all the tissues of the body and can be detected anywhere on the body.

Ampere’s law indicates that when an electrical current flows through a conductor, an electromagnetic field is produced that reflects the nature of the current that created it. Tests with scientific instruments indicate that electromagnetic fields exist around the body and around each of the organs of the body, including the brain, heart, kidneys, liver, stomach, etc. The heart has the strongest field, which has been measured at a distance of 15 feet from the body.

The fields around each of the organs pulse at different frequencies and stay within a specific frequency range when they are healthy, but move out of this range when they are unhealthy.


  The hands of healers produce pulsing electromagnetic fields when they are in the process of healing, whereas the hands of non-healer do not produce these fields. When a healer places his or her hands on or near a person in need of healing, the electromagnetic field of the healer’s hands sweeps through a range of frequencies based on the needs of the part of the body being treated. Faraday’s law indicates that one electromagnetic field can induce currents into a nearby conductor and through this process, induce a similar field around it. In this way, a healer induces a healthy electromagnetic field around an unhealthy organ, thus inducing a healthy state in the organ. A detailed explanation of this hypothesis, including descriptions of the scientific studies, diagrams, and references is presented in the interview mentioned above.


     Reputable medical doctors, cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Mehmet Oz and physician Dr. Andrew Weil, strongly support the effectiveness of Reiki natural healing.  Dr. Oz’s wife, Lisa Oz, is a Reiki Master and at times accompanies him during his surgical procedures by administering Reiki to his patients. According to the American Hospital Association, in 2007, 15%, or over 800 American hospitals, offered Reiki as part of their standard care for patients. 

     Reiki Master Pamela Miles has collaborated with prestigious healthcare institutions on care, education and research, including the National Institutes of Health (NIH), medical schools (Harvard, Yale, Einstein) and hospitals (New York Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, Beth Israel Medical Center, St. Luke’s-Roosevelt Hospital Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center). Pamela has worked with physicians and researchers to study the effectiveness of Reiki, the following link,, are her published Medical Papers.

Dr. Oz is one of the most respected surgeons in the U.S. and the Director of the Cardiovascular Institute at the Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons, speaking on Oprah.
