In brief: Try it
There is no specific answer as it depends what is causing your chronic pain.
My advise to patients is that if the therapy is not harmful, it is worth a try. So, i recommend you try it and see if it helps.

In brief: Not effective
Reiki therapy has been shown to provide short term pain relief for patients with cancer pain, but it has not been studied for chronic pain.
