Reiki & forskning


The Center for Reiki Research (CRR) is the first and only 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to Reiki research. The purpose of the CRR is to promote scientific awareness of Reiki by conducting quality research and providing an updated archive and summary of all evidence-based Reiki research published in peer-reviewed journals. CRR also offers guidance to researchers, practitioners and physicians who want to conduct Reiki research.
