 "Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide" by Pamela Miles is the first mainstream book about a healing practice popular with the public and increasingly used in hospitals. Miles writes from nearly two decades of Reiki practice, 30 years experience with natural medicine, and over 40 years studying meditation and yoga. The book has been endorsed by a number of prominent physicians, including Drs. Andrew Weil, Mehmet Oz, Christiane Northrup, and Larry Dossey, who calls it "the best guide to this healing art currently available." The author has created Reiki programs in major New York City hospitals and published papers in peer-reviewed medical journals.

Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide addresses every aspect of the practice and is as appropriate for the complete newbie as for the seasoned practitioner. The book helps readers decide if they want treatment or want to learn to practice themselves, describes the benefits of daily Reiki self-treatment, offers strategies for finding credible local practitioners and masters, details how Reiki is being used in conventional medicine, and gives an overview of the research. There is a chapter on Reiki in family life (pregnancy through end-of-life care), coaching on how to speak to your doctor about Reiki (and why you might want to), and lots of stories.

"Drawing from an uncommonly deep understanding of Reiki, Pamela Miles articulates the essence of healing in language accessible to both professionals and the public."
--Andrew Weil, M.D., author of Healthy Aging and Spontaneous Healing

"Reiki has become a sought-after healing art among patients and mainstream medical professionals. Pamela Miles has been instrumental in the integration of Reiki into conventional medicine and has written an intelligent, sensitive guidebook to this remarkable healing practice."
--Mehmet Oz, M.D., Vice Chairman and Professor of Surgery, New York Presbyterian-Columbia Hospital, and author of You: The Owner's Manual.

"I learned Reiki back in the early 1980's and have used it effectively with my children, myself, and my patients ever since. Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide is a beautifully written manual for how to use this wonderful healing modality in your own life."
--Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Mother-Daughter Wisdom, The Wisdom of Menopause, and Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom.

"Reiki is not easy to write about, yet Pamela Miles' Reiki: A Comprehensive Guide is clear, respectful, and insightful, reflecting Pamela's many years of thoughtful Reiki practice. Honoring Reiki's Japanese origins and Takata's lineage, she illustrates how the traditional form of practice has a place in contemporary settings. New Reiki students will get a comprehensive view of Reiki and long-time practitioners will be surprised to discover insights to deepen their relationship with this wonderful practice."
--Barbara McDaniel, Senior Managing Editor, Reiki Magazine International
