In brief: Possibly

There have been studies conducted by the nih cam center and others, but there is no supportive scientific evidence that reiki works for any condition.
That said, working with someone who cares about you and your condition can be therapeutic. The healing power of touch and contact with someone who cares is helpful for someone with pain and depression. A pain psychologist might be more helpful.
