Study finds Reiki effective on cells in test tubes

A three-year study at the University of Connecticut Health Center has shown that cells in test tubes treated by Reiki practitioners grew better than those treated by untrained assistants or an untreated control group

Gloria A. Gronowicz, the researcher who led the study, found the results so exciting that she told a reporter "I would like to spend the rest of my career working on this."

The study was funded by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, part of the National Institutes of Health, and was published in the Journal of Orthopedic Research.

Gronowicz, a professor of surgery at the University of Connecticut with a doctorate in molecular biology, said the results were "astonishing." 

Presumably, the discarded bone chips and skin and tendon cells were not subject to the placebo effect and had no expectations of the treatment.
