Menka Kuril

Abstract: Introduction: It is a well known fact that cancer is one of the leading causes of painful mortality worldwide. It is essential to find out ways and methods to reduce complications and pain of cancer patients. It is difficult for patients to manage and allopathic treatment options rarely provide total relief from symptoms that interfere with physical and emotional functioning. Complementary and alternative medicine options may provide complementary or adjuvant alternatives to traditional models of treatment for chemotherapy undergoing cancer patients. In present study, Reiki Healing which is one such alternative healing modality is successfully used for providing holistic health to cancer patients. In addition, to make this study more scientific, Biopulsar-Reflexograph was used as diagnostic tool, along with patients experience as proof of healing effect of Reiki.
