From the Back Cover:

"Drawing from an uncommonly deep understanding of Reiki, Pamela Miles articulates the essence of healing in language accessible to both professionals and the public." --Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Healthy Aging and Spontaneous Healing

"Reiki has become a sought-after healing art among patients and mainstream medical professionals. Pamela Miles has been instrumental in the integration of Reiki into conventional medicine and has written an intelligent, sensitive guidebook to this remarkable healing practice." --Mehmet Oz, M.D., Vice Chairman and Professor of Surgery, New York Presbyterian-Columbia Hospital, and author of You: The Owner’s Manual.

"I learned Reiki back in the early 1980's and have used it effectively with my children, myself, and my patients ever since. Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide is a beautifully written manual for how to use this wonderful healing modality in your own life." --Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom.

"Reiki is, increasingly, being incorporated into modern medicine because of one compelling reason: it works. Reiki Master Pamela Miles has written the best guide to this healing art currently available." --Larry Dossey, M.D., author of The Extraordinary Healing Power of Ordinary Things

In Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide, Pamela Miles—who taught me to practice Reiki—illustrates her rich experience with abundant healing stories, making this authoritative, enlightening guide a pleasure to read. She inspires us to look beyond our limits, towards a horizon of possibilities. --Lewis Mehl-Madrona, M.D.. Ph.D., author of Coyote Medicine, Coyote Healing and Coyote Wisdom.

"Pamela Miles helps bridge the gap between Reiki and conventional health care in a way that is wise, articulate and practical." --Michael H. Cohen, JD, Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School and author, Future Medicine.

Reiki is not easy to write about, yet Pamela Miles' Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide is clear, respectful, and insightful, reflecting Pamela's many years of thoughtful Reiki practice. Honoring Reiki's Japanese origins and Takata's lineage, she illustrates how the traditional form of practice has a place in contemporary settings. New Reiki students will get a comprehensive view of Reiki and long-time practitioners will be surprised to discover insights to deepen their relationship with this wonderful practice. --Barbara McDaniel, Senior Managing Editor, Reiki Magazine International

From the Inside Flap:

Perhaps the gentlest alternative healing therapy in the world, Reiki has gone mainstream. A form of vibrational healing developed in early twentieth century Japan, Reiki features the light laying on of hands. It is the least intrusive and most relaxing of the complementary healing therapies; it restores balance to body, mind, and spirit. Reiki is accessible to anyone, regardless of age or state of health, and it is breaking into conventional medicine as a result of its ease of use, its immediate benefits, and perhaps most important, the element of self-care inherent in the practice. And yet, the paucity of reliable resources on it has kept the practice enveloped in mystery. Until now.

For those who seek direction in bringing Reiki into their lives, Pamela Miles’ Reiki is an indispensable companion on the path to well-being. Considered by many to be the country’s foremost Reiki expert, Miles traces the origin and development of the practice, detailing how and why it restores and renews the human body in ways we’ve only begun to understand. For those who seek Reiki treatment, Miles provides information on how best to choose a practitioner, and for those who wish to be trained in Reiki, she offers step-by-step guidance, including comprehensive information on First-Degree, Second-Degree, and Master Training. For the advanced practitioner, Miles offers in-depth insight into continued practice. For physicians and health-care professionals, and anyone interested in the health benefits of Reiki, Miles offers information on current and forthcoming research that will lead to greater integration of this healing therapy into conventional medicine. A pioneer in bringing Reiki into mainstream medical practice, Miles uses her unique background to explain how Reiki complements conventional medical treatments, hastens recovery from invasive surgical procedures and eases the symptoms of conditions such as AIDS, cancer, insomnia, depression, anxiety and more, as well as the side effects of medications and chemotherapy. Miles also explains why Reiki is safe for children and the elderly. With compassion, wisdom, and the accumulated experience that comes from nearly twenty years as a Reiki practitioner, Pamela Miles empowers readers by showing them how simple it is to take an active role in their own health care. Her book is an illuminating companion guide to one of the fastest-growing spiritual healing practices in the world, an essential tool for anyone ready to bring healing into his or her life.
