does reiki effect the nervous system?

Here’s an interesting study posted by the Center For Reiki Research, looking into the effect of Reiki on the automatic nervous system. According to the study 3 groups- a reiki group, a sham reiki group, and a rest-only placebo group were given 15 minutes rest, followed by 30 minutes of treatment (reiki, or sham reiki, or rest), followed by 10 additional minutes of rest. While the reiki and reiki sham groups both showed decreased heart rate and respiration, and increased parasympathetic activity, the reiki group also showed reduced diastolic and mean blood pressure. The rest-only control group showed no changes.

I guess, science says: yes!
