Abstract of the article.

“In the early 1980’s, Dr. John Zimmerman began a series of important studies on therapeutic touch, using a SQUID magnetometer at the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver. Zimmerman discovered that a huge pulsating biomagnetic field emanated from the hands of a TT( Therapeutic Touch) practitioner.

Confirmation of Zimmerman’s findings came in 1992, when Seto and colleagues, in Japan, studied practitioners of various martial arts and other healing methods. The “Qi emission” from the hands is so strong that they can be detected with a simple magnetometer consisting of two coils, of 80,000 turns of wire. Since then, a number of studies of QiGong practitioners have extended these investigations to the sound, light, and thermal fields emitted by healers.

It is not widely understood that “brain waves” are not confined to the brain, but actually spread throughout the body via the perineural system, the connective tissue sheathes surrounding all of the nerves. Dr. Robert O. Becker has described how this system, more than any other, regulates injury repair processes throughout the body. Hence the entire nervous system acts as an “antenna” for projecting the bio-magnetic pulsations that begin in the brain, specifically in the thalamus.”

Now-a-days more and more people are flocking to Reiki Therapist for their physical diseases and disorders.

Cell Re-generation


Alternative Medicine and Conventional Medicine despite using different techniques have the same goal, and that is to relieve suffering of mankind.

In Alternative Medicine, Cell re-generation is achieved by techniques like Diet/Nutrition Therapy, Homoeopathy, Reiki and so on…. To achieve the same, doctors of conventional medicine have come up with a different approach.

An Extract from the attached link :

Heart surgeon, Dr Mehmet Oz, has worked with Julie Motz who used Reiki with his patients. These patients had received heart transplants and had experienced open-heart surgery. She treated 11 patients in total and none of them had the usual post-operative depression. The bypass patients had no post-operative pain or leg weakness and the transplant patients experienced no organ rejection. Julie Motz has written about this experience in her book, ‘Hands of Life’.”
