What is Reiki – ‘Reiki (ray-kee) Ryoho’ is a Japanese healing method/art that began in Japan in 1922. Reiki, offered through light touch, without manipulation of tissue, non-directive, and generally considered to be safe.
A growing number of hospitals incorporate Reiki as part of Integrative Therapies, offering Reiki before/after surgery and in the cancer treatment setting. https://nccih.nih.gov/health/decisions/consideringcam.html While more research is needed to show effectiveness for treatment for certain conditions, preliminary studies of Reiki have demonstrated ‘decreased anxiety.’ Reiki generally creates a calming, relaxing experience.
Dreamtime Wellness™ Reiki Shares/Clinics are offered in a ‘group setting’ as an affordable way for people to receive a Reiki Session. Monthly Reiki Shares are available ‘First Tuesdays’ at the Manchester Community Center, 40 Beach Street (Harbor Point,) Manchester-by-the-Sea. Conveniently located next to the MBTA train station. 5:15 – 8:15 pm.

More rigorous study of Reiki is needed, but preliminary studies indicate that Reiki may be helpful for decreasing pain and anxiety in the cancer treatment setting.
Poster Presentation on Reiki at the Oncology Nursing Society’s 43rd Congress- ‘Reiki in the Oncology Setting: A Nurse’s Perspective.’ May 19th. Washington D.C. As the RN/Reiki Provider at the North Shore Medical Center (NSMC,) Mass General Hospital (MGH,) and Tufts Medical Center Cancer Centers, I have heard first-hand the reports mentioned in the literature – ‘patients receiving Integrative Therapies during cancer treatment report these treatments help them “feel better,” “cope better,” and some report “a greater sense of hope.”
