Can I have Reiki if undergoing Cancer Treatment?

Cancer Patients and Reiki

Relaxing Supportive Reiki for those in need of a little extra TLC

I have noticed within my Reiki practice an increasing number of clients are finding it beneficial to come to the clinic for Reiki sessions either as a survivor of cancer or because they are experiencing adverse side effects having received invasive cancer treatment such as chemotherapy. 

Reiki can be given to cancer patients. Although, Reiki is not a cure, Reiki may help with emotional well-being and also be helpful in calming the mind and strengthening the energetic system supporting the body's natural immunity. Reiki may help with relaxation, sleep and clarity of thought. 

Reiki is a complementary therapy and can be used alongside existing medication/treatment and I always recommend seeking guidance from your Doctor if you are undergoing treatment before having any complementary therapies.

There are many articles about the potential benefits of Reiki for patients undergoing cancer treatment.  Check out the International Association of Reiki Professionals®  https://iarp.org/reiki-and-cancer-research/
