    It’s considered quackery and akin to choosing “faith healing” as opposed to true scientifically sound practices. Touting these types of “treatments” to families of children with disabilities does them a disservice. Money could be better spent on OT, PT, Speech therapy. There is no scientific proof that this does anything at all. Shame on you. Will we be seeing articles about reading auras for therapy next? http://skepdic.com/reiki.html http://www.sciencebasedmedicine.org/when-healing-turns…/ http://www.csicop.org/specialarticles/show/the_weekend_i_became_a_reiki_healer/ http://thesoapboxrantings.blogspot.com/2013/07/5-things-ive-noticed-about-reiki-healing.html http://www.quackwatch.com/01QuackeryRelatedTopics/reiki.html

    There is evidence it works, and speech, ot, etc are paid for through insurance and the Board of Ed.
