A study in 2004 looked at whether Reiki could reduce insomnia and improve sleep patterns. It found that Reiki was a beneficial therapy for sleep problems since it decreased episodes of insomnia and improved sleep patterns. Reiki also had a positive effect on the parasympathetic nervous system, which is associated with relaxation.
