There is absolutely no evidence of the existence of Qi, nor any evidence of its effects, nor any suggestion that it can be localised and measured.We are working solely with the idea that it exists.If we were selling an object using false claims, we would fall foul of the law, under consumer protection legislation. (It must be those ignorant self opinionated patients again…ha ha ha!If alternative practitioners are offering treatment, they should at the very least be offering some impartial, reliable, reproducible evidence that it works. ) We already know that the brain responds to anticipation and expectation by chemical changes which mimic what is expected.If the patient expects to receive treatment, there are endorphins and other opioids which are released in the brain causing them to feel better.It’s a very well-known phenomenon and makes anecdotal evidence hopelessly unreliable.
The practitioner, who has received training from a Reiki Master, claims to be able to transfer energy to the patient and that this enables the patient to recover from a variety of illnesses. A brief scan of the internet will produce claims to treat: stress, depression, bereavement, back pain, spina bifida, ME, arthritis, sports injuries, broken bones, sciatica, ankylosing spondylitis, nerve damage, cancer.
But the evidence only supports self-curative properties in certain circumstances: where major trauma has damaged vital organs, self-curing fails.
Where there are damaging metabolic changes, self-curing does not take place.
For example, a measurable change in the patient after having received this energy.
Thirdly, we need to know something about where the energy comes from, how it is transferred, how it is stored, and the means by which we know these things.
