Many people have asked about independent scientific research with therapies like Reiki. The following article by Tamisha Sabrina comes from The UK Reiki Federation website () and provides a fascinating insight into what occurs during a treatment.
Independent research by Dr Robert Becker and Dr John Zimmerman during the 1980's investigated what happens whilst people practice therapies like Reiki.

During these moments, the biomagnetic field of the practitioners' hands is at least 1000 times greater than normal, and not as a result of internal body current.
