Reiki has been scientifically proven to reduce pain and cut down on the need for pain medication. In addition, patients who receive Reiki in the hospital go home earlier on average when compared to patients who do not receive Reiki. See the Reiki research page for a list of scientific journal articles based on research.
Andrea has performed Reiki for clients while they are in the hospital. This has included being present in pre-op, post-op and in hospital rooms. She has also utilized Distance Reiki for clients while they are in the operating room and if they live far away.
If you or a loved one would like to schedule a session as an inpatient or for pre-op and/or post-op, please contact her to arrange this type of appointment. You may also ask your surgeon to allow Andrea in the operating room because this is offered at some hospitals. It is rising in acceptance but not yet widespread, however.
Please contact her as soon as possible if you are interested in these services so Andrea may work with you to decide on a suitable Reiki treatment plan for your procedure and/or recovery.
Fees for Reiki in a health care setting are $95 per hour but may vary depending on travel time and requested services. Please discuss your needs with Andrea and a plan and price will be agreed upon early in the process. If you are interested in Distance Reiki for your medical procedure and/or recovery, please contact Andrea to proceed with planning and questions. (The Try Reiki Special does not apply to Medical Reiki).
