In brief: Helped not cured

Research has shown reiki helps in reducing stress & pain & thus would likely benefit many with arthritis.
However, i haven't seen any information that suggests that it would totally cure arthritis.There are many types of arthritis & most are chronic & difficult to fully cure. However, there are many alternative therapies that can help: http://www.Arthritistrust.Org/menu_list/articlesimportant.Html.

In brief: Cure is a big word

In general, any treatment that claims to "cure" arthritis is making promises it cannot keep.
Alternative and complimentary medicine practices can soothe symptoms for some people, but this should be discussed with your doctor. If i went to school for over 30 years and i don't use the word "cure, " you should be suspicious of anyone who does.
