The Science of Reiki

What happens Vibrationally?

In quantum Physics, entangled particles remain connected, so that actions performed on one affect the other, even when separated by great distances.


Light particles  make an agreement to mirror each others movements, even after they have been separated by vast distances. It’s as if they communicate instantaneously. Healing energy can be beamed across space and time and entangled spirits move in perfect unison toward balance and health.


QUANTUM …. It happens in instant. There is no space or time..


Science has proof of this quantum entanglement now, showing that this is not woo woo, its happening right now.


Water experiments conducted have provided scientific evidence of the effect of reiki, where water that has been given reiki has had astounding results. 

Given that the human body is 60% water,  these findings prove the effectiveness of reiki and distance healing in terms of helping bring us back to our natural state of health and vitality.

What happens Physically?

The Autonomic Nervous system (ANS) is a branch of our nervous system that is controlled by the subconscious mind. It is here that all our beliefs and memories are stored and it's also responsible for our emotions and involuntary actions.  The ANS has 2 branches:

  • The Sympathetic Nervous System (SNS) - The Fight or Flight system

    • The SNS is responsible for responding to impending danger or  more commonly in today our stress.It is  responsible for increasing the heart rate and blood pressure, quickening the breath,  increasing muscle tension, sweating and reduced digestion and immune functionality. It does this to prepare the body to escape, as a result the hormone adrenaline is released as the body prepares for a potential threat.

  • The Parasympathetic Nervous System (PNS) - The Rest and Digest system

    • On the other hand, the PNS is  responsible for allowing the body to both rest and digest, it is active when a a person is resting and feels relaxed. The PNS releases hormones that slows the body's stress response and promotes relaxation.  It is responsible for decreasing the heart rate and blood pressure, stimulating the digestive and genitourinary systems and strengthening the immune system.


Reiki activates the PNS and, interestingly, many clients often report gurgling in their stomachs during a treatment as their digestive system becomes stimulated from finally receiving the signal that the body is relaxed. In doing so, the body can begin the process of detoxification, supporting the liver and the immune system in healing the body. 


Simultaneously, when clients receive Reiki they move from the everyday beta brain wave state (busy, anxious thinking) into an alpha and sometimes even deeper theta brain wave state which induces deep relaxation and calm wakefulness.  Because the active brain consumes more than 20% of our energy, this can have profound effects, which can provide us time to give more energy to other parts of the body in order to heal.
