Effects of stress mitigated by reiki

October 26, 2015

Surprisingly, rats can do more than eat pizza

And while It is amazing that a rat would abandon a perfectly good piece of pizza after carrying it so far,

It’s also great to know that rats can participate in reiki studies.

In this study, rats are exposed to noise stress. They are paired with rats who do not receive environmental stress. The rats exposed to reiki showed a reduced heartrate, and that there was a proportionally higher response for rats with higher initial heartrate. Meaning: reiki calmed down the rats. A control group received sham reiki given by non-practioners. The control group didn’t experience a reduction in heart rate. Reiki wins.

So dear rat, go for yours. Do not abandon hope, or pizza.
