Abstract:

Session presented on: Tuesday, July 23, 2013

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to determine the impact of Reiki therapy on total knee replacement patients' pain perception and satisfaction with Reiki therapy.

Methods: Forty-four subjects scheduled for total knee replacement were randomized into Reiki (23) and non-Reiki (21) groups.' Pain was assessed before and after Reiki therapy in the pre-operative area, PACU, and three postoperative days.'' A survey was distributed the day of discharge to measure satisfaction with Reiki. Data related to pain analgesia used was collected for all subjects.

Results: Using t-tests to compare pain ratings pre and post Reiki, statistically significant reductions were found in all but PACU (pre op, p = 0.03; each post operative day, p< .001; PACU, p=.53). No statistically significant differences were found for pain medication use. Subjects receiving Reiki responded positively to surveys about their experience with Reiki; 16 (76%) agreed that Reiki helped with pain relief and 5 were unsure; 20 (95%) indicated they would recommend Reiki to others while 1 was unsure.

Conclusion: Reiki may be an effective and well-accepted component in the

management of acute pain in the surgical patient.
