Reiki 

Reiki is a form of alternative therapy commonly referred to as energy healing. It emerged in Japan in the late 1800's and is said to involve the transfer of universal energy from the practitioner's palms to their patient. 
 
Energy healing has been used for centuries in various forms. Advocates say it works with the energy fields around the body. 
 
Some controversy surrounds Reiki, because it is hard to prove its effectiveness through scientific means. However, many people who receive Reiki say it works, and its popularity is increasing. A Google search for the term currently returns no less than 68,900,000 results. 
 
A 2007 survey shows that, in the United States (U.S.), 1.2 million adults tried Reiki or a similar therapy at least once in the previous year. Over 60 hospitals are believed to offer Reiki services to patients. 
Reiki is a form of energy therapy. 
Despite scepticism in some circles, it is growing in popularity. 
It involves the transfer of energy by laying on hands. 
Reiki's advocates say it can treat many conditions and emotional states. 
Small studies show that Reiki can slightly reduce pain, but no studies have shown that it is effective in treating any diseases. 
Some hospitals in America and Europe offer Reiki, but insurance rarely covers it. 
 
The word "Reiki" means "mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign." It comes from the Japanese words "rei" (universal) and "ki" (life energy). Reiki is a type of energy healing. 
 
Energy healing targets the energy fields around the body. 
 
According to practitioners, energy can stagnate in the body where there has been physical injury or possibly emotional pain. In time, these energy blocks can cause illness. 
Energy medicine aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Improving the flow of energy around the body, say practitioners, can enable relaxation, reduce pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness. 
The power of prayer 
According to many studies, the psychological benefits of prayer seem to help not only to reduce stress and anxiety and promote a more positive outlook, but it also strengthens the will to live, moreover even patients who don't know they're being prayed for seem to fair better than patients who are not being prayed for.  
 
This comes down to quantum physics and the double slit experiment, where the observer has an influence over the experiment just by observing it. In the same way a similar effect can be observed by writing the word 'love' and placing it on a flowering plant and placing the word 'hate' on another identical plant both side by side; surprisingly the plant with love written on it will seem to do better, it's not due to the writing of the word or the plant knowing what you've written, it's the observer believing that one plant will do better than the other purely because of the sign. 
 
There's more to it than just power of the mind, it's your subtle thoughts interacting with energy at a quantum scale, call it consciousness, (look up, The Global Consciousness Project.) Everything in the universe is interlinked and that's why Reiki is beneficial and assists in the healing process directing the flow of energy to where it's most needed. 
 
Other practices such as Yoga, T'ai chi, and Meditation also have a positive impact on physical and psychological health. 
The Global Consciousness Project (GCP, also called the EGG Project) is a parapsychology experiment begun in 1998 as an attempt to detect possible interactions of "global consciousness" with physical systems. The project monitors a geographically distributed network of hardware random number generators in a bid to identify anomalous outputs that correlate with widespread emotional responses to sets of world events, or periods of focused attention by large numbers of people.  
 
The GCP is privately funded through the Institute of Noetic Sciences and describes itself as an international collaboration of about 100 research scientists and engineers.
