A list of hospitals and centres that use Reiki (USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain).
“Reiki in America
The Hospitals that apply Reiki are rising and this trend seems unstoppable. In the USA, the Johns Hopkins Hospital is one of many top facilities that are adopting it along conventional treatments. Also, the Johns Hopkins is one of the Top 3 Cancer Hospitals that include Reiki among their Integrative Care Programs, the others being the MD Anderson Cancer Center and the Mayo Clinic. Canada has been doubling the use of alternative therapies in the last 10 years. In the case of Reiki, several clinical facilities are adopting this therapy to use alongside conventional treatments.

Reiki in Europe
Reiki in the United Kingdom is becoming a referent of collaboration between Healthcare Facilities and the Trusts. In Spain there are many cities whose hospitals are offering Reiki therapy, the only setback being that Madrid has banned the promotion of these so called “pseudotherapies”. Portugal is another european country in which Reiki has been integrated among Integrative and Holistic Programs.” (288)
