Reaching Out With Reiki Global Initiative
October 9, 2021
Compassionately Caring for Cancer Patients
Benevolence meets commitment in an atmosphere of mutual love and respect

The Reaching Out With Reiki initiative is an adaptation of a project born 1996 in New Mexico, USA, which now has evolved to become an International, all volunteer project designed to provide no cost, in person and Distance Reiki sessions to Cancer Survivors at all stages of cancer and at any age, as well as Oncology Care Givers, around the globe.

Thank you to Kathy Araki for her vision and inspiration.

We’ve put together a core organizational team of professional and dedicated Reiki practitioners, with passion and the inspiration to make a lasting difference. We are looking forward to maximizing our impact on the Global community through this World Wide project. Our aim is to provide compassionate care offered with Love. Over our many years of operation, we are ever grateful to have built lasting relationships with Cancer Support Organizations, Oncology Doctors,  Hospitals as well as International Reiki Practitioner Organizations who continue to support us on our journey.

Reiki for Cancer Patients

Reiki has been studied  for its effects on cancer and cancer treatment symptoms such as anxiety, sleeplessness and pain as well as its impact on quality of life and well-being.

A randomized controlled trial (RCT) of 110 presurgical patients with breast cancer found reduced anxiety and mood improvement in the Reiki treatment group.

In another study participants randomized to receive a standard opioid plus Reiki or a standard opioid plus rest, the Reiki group reported significant reduction in pain.

Furthermore, researchers from a prospective crossover trial of patients with cancer-related fatigue randomized to Reiki or resting control reported reductions in pain, fatigue, and anxiety and improved quality of life in the Reiki group compared to the control group.

Conclusion in all studies~It works

Harmonize the Body

The intention is to create deep relaxation, which will help speed healing, reduce pain, and decrease other symptoms one may be experiencing. Reiki can also be done “long-distance,” (shared in Reiki Level 2). The word “Reiki” is comprised of two Japanese words, Rei and Ki. An exact interpretation can be difficult when translating Japanese into English, there are many levels of meaning in the Japanese language.

Therefore, it’s important to keep in mind the context in which the word is being used when attempting to communicate its essence. In the framework of this course, we will use the definition handed down in the Usui tradition, Rei, meaning “Universal” and Ki, meaning “Life Force Energy”.

Reiki for Everybody

Reiki is safe, simple, and non-invasive, it’s a wholly natural method that can be used by anyone. It has been shown to be consistently effective in reducing stress, there by affecting several physical, mental and emotional issues and conditions. It also works as an ideal adjunct to other medical or therapeutic techniques, e.g., relieve side effects of medication and promote recovery following surgery, illness or injury. Optimum health is an holistic and dynamic state of balance. Reiki works to restore that balance, freely flowing through the body in a natural and highly beneficial way. While Reiki is energetic in nature, there is nothing you must believe to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work regardless of one’s belief system. Because Reiki is Universal, many people find that continued use promotes a deeper understanding which allows for more self-awareness.

      Natalia Kolesnikova

      Lead Practitioner Coordinator

      My journey into energy practices began a long time ago. I think the awareness and some understanding of energy has been with me my entire life, leading me to where I have come already and where I’m going to still arrive.  I got introduced to Reiki energy in 2017 and was amazed by the simplicity and power of this beautiful practice. Reiki opens what you already have. Once you get attuned to it, Reiki stays with you your entire life.

      I’m honored to be able to pass this sacred practice and bring light into people’s lives.

      Claire Harrison

      Lead Participant Coordinator

      Claire is a lawyer by profession, and reiki practitioner by passion. She assisted Kasey in the establishment of the Reaching Out With Reiki program in the United Arab Emirates.

      Claire believes that the actual experience of reiki says more than words ever could, and is committed to implementing this in her daily life encounters.
