疼痛是最常見的症狀之一，可能會導致個人出現嚴重的心理，心理和生理問題。根據靈氣研究中心(The Center for Reiki Research)的數據，靈氣是減輕疼痛，抑鬱和焦慮程度的有效方法。因此，本綜合分析研究的目的是研究靈氣對疼痛程度的影響。
研究了Pubmed，ISI Web of Sciences和Google Scholar 數據資料庫中的隨機對照臨床試驗。綜合分析包括4項涉及212名參與者的隨機對照研究。
最終的靈氣應用後獲得的結果通過VAS疼痛評分進行評估。當靈氣療法（n = 104）組與對照組（n = 108）進行比較時，觀察到的標準化平均差異為-0.927（95％CI：-1.867至0.0124）。觀察到Reiki會導致VAS評分出現統計上的顯著下降。
Pain is one of the most common symptoms and may lead to important psychological, mental, and physiological problems in individuals. According to data by The Center for Reiki Research, Reiki is an effective approach to decrease the levels of pain, depression, and anxiety. Therefore, the aim of this meta-analysis was to investigate the effect of Reiki on pain level.
Randomized controlled clinical trials in databases of Pubmed, ISI Web of Sciences, and Google Scholar were investigated. 4 randomized controlled studies involving 212 participants were included in the meta-analysis.
The result obtained after the final Reiki application was evaluated in VAS pain score. When Reiki (n = 104) group was compared with control group (n = 108), standardized mean difference was observed to be −0.927 (95% CI: −1.867 to 0.0124). Reiki was observed to cause a statistically significant decrease in VAS score.
Consequently, this meta-analysis revealed that Reiki was an effective approach in relieving the pain.
