Reiki is in our hospitals and taught in our schools:

Reiki, a form of energy healing, is being offered by a growing number of nurses, chaplains and other staffers at Crouse, Upstate University and the VA Medical Center.


About 15 percent of hospitals nationwide -- including the Cleveland Clinic, Children's Hospital in Boston and Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore provide Reiki.

Upstate has trained about 30 staff members to offer Reiki to patients.

"We can't handle all the requests we are getting," said Rev. Louise Tallman Shepherd, a pediatric chaplain and Reiki Master at Upstate.

Among Reiki's fans are cardiac surgeon and TV show host Dr. Mehmet Oz, who recently urged viewers to try it. "This alternative medicine treatment can manipulate your energy and cure what ails you," he said on his program.
