Those that are rigorous show quite clearly that Reiki is a placebo.

Their results tend to suggest that patients experience benefit after having Reiki but they rarely exclude the possibility that this is due to placebo or other non-specific effects.

This would mean that the condition at hand remains untreated which, in a worst case scenario, might even lead to the death of patients.

More important, in my view, is an entirely different risk: making people believe in mystic “energies” undermines rationality in a much more general sense.

In the eyes of those who believe in this sort of thing, Reiki is therefore a true panacea: it can heal everything.

The clinical evidence for or against Reiki is fairly clear – as one would expect after realising how ‘far out’ its underlying concepts are.

Over half of accounts note damage to human-made structures, and causality is implied in many of these accounts.

Overgrazing was indicated as the cause of incision in twelve percent of accounts.

In my view, such investigations do untold damage: they convince uncritical thinkers that “energy” healing is a rational and effective approach – so much so that even the military is beginning to use it.
