Published Science, Papers, and Articles about Energy Healing

Einstein shows us that matter/mass and energy are the same thing.

Einstein gave us some important descriptions of the universe we live in, and among them is the famous equation E=MCsquared. E is energy, M is mass (matter), and C is the speed of light. 

So, "Energy equals mass times the speed of light squared." 

What’s important is the equation tells us that matter/mass and energy are the same thing. This is another version of my statement on the Reiki / Energy Healing page - that your physical body (and our physical/material world) is the 'form-of-matter' manifestation of its associated energy field. 

Here is a small selection of numerous published scientific studies, papers, and articles on Energy Healing / Reiki. 

Many of these pages provide direction and links to further reading, especially those from 

the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health below.
