Area Reiki Master Participating in Research Project

SARATOGA SPRINGS, NY (07/10/2015)(readMedia)-- LisaMarie Tersigni, a Reiki Master/Teacher and the owner of Inspiring Wellness Solutions, LLC, has been selected as a research professional for a comprehensive study of the benefits of Reiki treatment by Harvard University and the Center for Reiki Research. She is one of a small group of Reiki practitioners nationwide who are participating in this study.

The study is being conducted by Natalie Trent, Ph.D., a research fellow in psychology at Harvard and project coordinator at the Center for Reiki Research. Its purpose is to demonstrate the therapeutic value of Reiki and identify the medical conditions for which it is most helpful. The study will track the progress of each practitioner's participating clients before, during and after Reiki treatment.

Reiki is an energy-based healing art of Japanese origin. The name comes from the Japanese words "Rei" (universal life) and "ki" (energy). A practitioner uses his or her hands to guide the flow of energy in and around the person receiving treatment, with the goal of unblocking and strengthening that energy flow to correct physical and emotional imbalances in the body.

More than 70 hospitals, clinics and hospice programs offer Reiki as a complement to conventional treatment, according to the Center for Reiki Research.

LisaMarie Tersigni became a Reiki Master in 2004, at which time she opened Light and Love Reiki in Clifton Park. She currently offers Reiki treatments and instruction at her health and wellness practice, Inspiring Wellness Solutions, LLC. Inspiring Wellness Solutions has offices in Saratoga Springs and Albany, New York.
