Assuming this “reiki” is not expensive, might it not be valuable for its placebo effect?

It’s a Magical Money Transfer Machine. “Feel that heat? That’s the dollars rushing out of your wallet so fast they are heating up the very air in this room. Take it in. I’ll be right back. I have to empty the buckets.”

Here’s information from the Cleveland Clinic’s page.

While I personally don’t buy into most of the alternative medicine stuff, I can see where it could benefit patients, particularly with regard to anxiety. It looks like this is used in conjunction with regular medical practices.

I’ll buy the paradox that something proven as useless can actually help someone. It’s all in the sale and delivery. If the placebo is not going to hurt or take the place of know conventional treatments that help, ok. If the person paying for the placebo is not ripped off, ok. Belief is a very strong emotion and can help or hinder sickness and health. Just from my observations, I’ve seen things I cannot explain. If there is no harm, no foul and all are happy, do it. Who knows? The power of suggestion should never be understated.
