Medical Papers

The quality of health care depends in part on the accuracy of information published in medical journals. The peer-review process is designed to maintain scientifically credible information and research standards. Papers are critiqued and approved by at least two experts (usually researchers or physicians) prior to being accepted for publication.

The following are Reiki papers published in peer-reviewed medical journals and indexed on PubMed.
