The Importance of Reiki

Reiki, also known as universal life energy, was hidden for thousands of years until Dr. Mikao Usui rediscovered it in the Tibetan sutras. It has been growing in popularity as a complementary therapy to allopathic medicine.

The Abramson Cancer Center of Penn Medicine makes reiki therapy available for patients either getting infusions or receiving treatments in the radiation oncology department. It is also available at the Perelman Center for Advanced Medicine.

In 2017, the Journal of Evidence-Based Complementary and Alternative Medicine published an abstract by David E. McManus, Ph.D., titled: “Reiki Is Better Than Placebo and Has Broad Potential as a Complementary Health Therapy.”

As a reiki master for 23 years, Susan Drummond, owner of The Center, Life in Balance, in Medford, has firsthand evidence of the efficacy of reiki. “I was introduced to reiki when I was having difficulty conceiving my third child,” shares Drummond. “I had been ‘trying’ for 18 months. I conceived the month I had my first reiki treatment. Because of this amazing healing, I knew I needed to become a practitioner to help others. I have had the privilege of witnessing many clients heal on all levels: physical, mental and spiritual.”

Drummond says she has seen reiki help her clients with infertility, breast cancer (she reports that one client’s mass dissolved without medical treatment), uterine cancer, menopause, anxiety, hormones and more.
