It references a study done by researcher Krinsley D. Bengston. It studied the healing effects of Reiki on mice with cancer and the profound results were remarkable.

He states, “The tentative conclusions are that belief in laying-on of hands is not necessary to produce the effect; there is a stimulated immune response to treatment,
which is reproducible and predictable; and the mice retain immunity to the same cancer after remission.”

The article also quotes Dr. James L. Oschman as saying:

“We now have a set of logical, testable and refutable hypotheses that can account for the effects of various energetic therapies,” according to James L. Oschman, Ph.D., one of the leading
authorities on the science of energy medicine, in his book Energy Medicine in Therapeutics and Human Performance. “We focus on electrical and magnetic energies because these are the easiest to measure and we know more about their effects.”

It also speaks to Ampere’s Law of physics and explains its relevance to energy healing as seen here: “One of the most basic laws of physics, Ampere’s Law, explains the electrical and magnetic energies in and around the human body. Ampere’s Law says that when electrical currents flow through conductors, whether they are wires or living tissue, a magnetic field is produced in the surrounding space. Since living tissue – including the heart and other muscles, the brain, and other organs – conducts electricity, the laws of physics mean they create a magnetic field around the body, called the biomagnetic field.”

“Pulsing magnetic fields from the hands of Reiki therapists are in the same frequency ranges that are optimal for stimulating tissue repair.” Therefore Reiki practitionners induce the current flows into their clients to encourage the body’s tissues to rejuvenate.
