MEDICAL REIKI™ GOLD STANDARDS & PRACTICES (Excerpt from “MEDICAL REIKI™ PRACTITIONER’S MANUAL”)
By Raven Keyes, Medical Reiki™ Founder © Raven Keyes
There are Gold Standards and Practices I have created based on my years of administering Reiki to patients in the operating room. My Reiki work in the OR began in the year 2000 with Dr. Mehmet Oz. These imperative standards and practices are adhered to by all Medical Reiki™ Masters of the Raven Keyes Reiki Registry in order to protect themselves in the harsh environment of the operating room, and to safely bring Reiki into any medical situation. This Medical Reiki Practitioner’s Manual™ is for trained Medical Reiki Masters™ only, to be used in support of the Medical Reiki Training™. THIS IS NOT A TEACHING MANUAL! Nor is it meant for anyone without Medical Reiki Training™. Without the in-person training, topics will not be fully understood which can lead to problems for the practitioner as well as for Reiki itself, with the possibility of prohibiting Reiki’s allowance into a hospital’s operating rooms forever.

During a Reiki treatment
The practitioner gently places his/her hands in different positions on, or slightly above, the body while the patient sits in a chair or lies in a bed. As stress and tension are released, the body begins to relax and release the trauma, illness, or imbalances and returns to harmony, equilibrium and calmness.
