Reiki Reading List for Evidence Based Minded People

I have received some criticism in the past from evidence based westernized medical professionals who are skeptical of Reiki. It has made me realize that there should be a recommended reading list for those who desire a more western approach to understanding Reiki.

To do this, it was important to me to find books that bridge the gap between Eastern energy healing concepts and Western medical practices. Here are some highly recommended books that do just that! I thank you for your curiosity and hope you enjoy these books and appreciate their concepts in complementary holistic care.
