Referral requests pour in following Dr. Oz's endorsement of Reiki

Has the wave of interest following Dr. Mehmet Oz's enthusiastic television endorsement of Reiki reached its peak? Or is it just building?

Since Dr. Oz featured Reiki author Pamela Miles on a program about alternative remedies in the first week of January, our web traffic here at The Reiki Digest has skyrocketed. Because we've been covering Dr. Oz's Reiki connection here since 2007, many who searched online for information about the show found their way here. We mobilized immediately to offer resources for those potential new clients, students, and practitioners by setting up a free referral service, drawing upon our database of what was then more than 400 teachers and practitioners who have responded to our Global Reiki Census. Now we have more than 800 practitioners in that database, with dozens more practitioners registering each day. (Practitioners who have completed our online Reiki Update Training and passed the final exam get top priority for referrals.) All the referral requests gave us a reason to start tweeting frequently, so you might want to start following us on Twitter as well.

If you're among the many looking to experience or learn more about Reiki, click here to request a free referral to a Reiki teacher or practitioner near you.

We know that Pamela has been very busy as well since her TV appearance, but we're glad that she's taken the time to add some valuable resources, including videos, to her web site for anyone curious about Reiki.

Here's one on how to find a credible Reiki practitioner. Pamela has generously given permission for us -- and for you -- to use the YouTube video on your own site. If you can't see the video below, click here to watch, or here to see more videos, including the actual Dr. Oz endorsement.

We plan for the new referral service to continue as a free service with the support of advertising, and we hope to help as many people as possible make their own Reiki connections.

As we develop this service, here are a few tips on how to help us do so efficiently:

If you're a practitioner and you'd like to be included in our database, please add your information to our Global Reiki Census, rather than calling or emailing us. We're doing our best to keep up, but it will be a while before we'll be able to add your information manually.

If you've registered with the Global Reiki Census before but you want to change your information, just fill out the form again and note that you're updating your information.

If you registered before and you chose not to make your information public, you will not get referrals because we're still keeping that promise. If you'd like to change that, just update your information here. And if you left out information on your location, or if you simply put "information available on request," we won't be able to refer clients to you, either.

Finally, if I owe you a reply to an email or phone call, my apologies and I'll get back to you very soon. And to current Reiki Update Training students: Another repercussion of the Dr. Oz Reiki endorsement is that I'm reworking the final class, and the final exam, so thanks for your patience and look for more information soon.
