Reiki in Hospitals
As hundreds of thousands of people are experiencing the benefits of Reiki treatment and healing for a comprehensive list of acute and chronic illnesses and conditions and thus seeking Reiki as part of their overall treatment regimen, increasingly more number of hospitals and medical institutions in the USA and around the world offer some level and type of 'Reiki treatment and healing' related support and services. Depending on the outpatient facility, hospital, healthcare organization, etc., they may designate their departments to offer Reiki treatments through their following department and facilities:
Energy Medicine or EM
Integrative Medicine or IM
Complementary & Alternative Medicine or CAM
Wellness Centers and spas
A short list of some of the most prestigious and award winning hospitals and medical facilities in the USA that offer or support Reiki treatment in some way, form, or shape includes:

Additionally, the other wellness and therapeutic locations such as physical therapy, massage therapy, chiropractic, acupressure and acupuncture, and wellness spas also offer Reiki treatment and healing as their complementary modalities. Today, there are tens of thousands of licensed healthcare professionals, including nurses and doctors, either personally provide Reiki healing to their patients or work with the certified Reiki Masters to provide it to their patients. Read this fantastic article to get glimpses of how nurses use and provide Reiki to their patients.
According to this dated and certainly old Washington Post article, more than 60 U.S. hospitals have adopted Reiki as part of patient services, according to a UCLA study, and Reiki education is offered at 800 hospitals. One may expect this list to be expanded since then - mainly due to the ever increasing awareness, availability, and affordability of the Reiki practitioners around the world.
The Center for Reiki Research provides excellent and perhaps the most comprehensive insights into the applications of Reiki in the hospitals. Not only it leads major research efforts using a very sophisticated process (called Touchstone Process) and methodology but also documents the outcome of its research efforts. According to its website, its purpose is to promote the scientific awareness of Reiki by providing a current list of evidence based research published in peer reviewed journals along with summaries of each of these studies, and also offer guidance and direction for those wanting to produce future studies. They have also offered this dated and old list of 76 hospitals, medical clinics, and hospice programs where Reiki sessions or treatments are offered in some way, form, or shape.
