Appetite

Publication Title: 
The American Journal of Hospice & Palliative Care

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate patient-perceived benefits from receiving Reiki at a cancer infusion center. METHODS: During a 6-month period, adults at a university hospital receiving Reiki through volunteer services were invited to complete a survey asking about perceived changes after Reiki. Changes in pain, mood, distress, sleep, and appetite were rated on a 5-point scale from no benefit to great benefit. Surveys were distributed after completing treatment and were returned in postage-paid envelops.
