A study about the effectiveness of Reiki healing for the reduction of stress levels was conducted by E. L Bukowski and published in the Journal of Integrative Medicine in 2015. Over the course of 20 weeks, a structured self-reiki program on stress reduction and relaxation was administered two times a week to 20 college students from Stockton University. Each participant completed a Reiki Baseline Credibility Scale, a Reiki Expectancy Scale, and a Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) after acceptance into the study. The PSS was completed every four weeks once the interventions were initiated. A global assessment questionnaire was completed at the end of the study. Logs summarizing the outcome of each session were submitted at the end of the study. With the exception of three participants, participants believed that Reiki is a credible technique for reducing stress levels. All participants experienced stress within the month prior to completing the initial PSS. There was a significant reduction in stress levels from pre-study to post-study.
