Reiki in Hospitals and other Medical Settings
Reiki and complementary therapies have been benefiting patients, caregivers, and hospitals at an increasing rate over the past decade.
Hospitals across the United States are responding to patient demand and integrating complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) services with the conventional services they normally provide, according to the results of a survey released by Health Forum, a subsidiary of the American Hospital Association (AHA) and Samueli Institute, a non-profit research organization that investigates healing-oriented practices.
The survey shows that more than 42 percent of responding hospitals indicated they offer one or more CAM therapies, up from 37 percent in 2007.
“The rise of complementary and alternative medicine reflects the continued effort on the part of hospitals and caregivers to broaden the vital services they provide to patients and communities,” said Nancy Foster, vice president for quality and patient safety at the AHA. “Hospitals have long known that what they do to treat and heal involves more than just medications and procedures. It is about using all of the art and science of medicine to restore the patient as fully as possible.”
And in Canada, complementary and alternative therapies are used by nearly 70% of the populace for wellness and as a complement to their medical care.
According to the 2010 Complementary and Alternative Medicine Survey of US hospitals, 85 percent of responding hospitals indicated patient demand as the primary rationale in offering CAM services and 70 percent of survey respondents stated clinical effectiveness as their top reason.
