For Huntington’s Disease:
Reiki is known as a system of laying on the hands that originated as a Buddhist practice approximately 2,500 years ago. Human studies suggest that reiki may have an effect on autonomic nervous system functions such as heart rate, blood pressure, or breathing activity, which is important in neurological disorders that may damage autonomic function, including neurological conditions. Large, well-designed studies are needed before conclusions can be drawn.
Reiki is not recommended as the sole treatment approach for potentially serious medical conditions and shouldn’t delay the time it takes to consult with a healthcare professional or receive established therapies. Use cautiously with psychiatric illnesses.
