I have yet to see any indication that faith healing or Reiki have a direct effect on physical condition. 

I have seen some very convincing evidence... but then again, I am also a Reiki Master Grin.

Right after I became a Reiki Master/Teacher, my Master sent all her students to a home of a woman who was in so much pain that she had been bed ridden for over a year. I think she had Fibromylagia. Her doctors said there was nothing left for them to do and she would just basically have to suffer till she died (she could even get up to use the bathroom). She had a nurse that came to see her everyday and family living with her so she could be taken care of.

Anyways, two different groups of Reiki practioners when to see her once a week for two weeks. By the time I saw her the second time, by this time she had had 4 treatments, she was able to sit up to eat and she walked by herself to the bathroom.

Now whether it was the Reiki or something she just began to believe about herself, she started getting stronger. Could it all be in her head, definitely! But who knows, does it really matter as long as the person gets better.

The difference between Reiki and the evangelistic faith healling method is that the evangelist are just putting on a show, I have never heard of an actually healing of any kind. They are just doing it for money. On a side note, the Reiki healing of that woman was completely free.

And, to be honest, I don't remember much from the sessions. I was a new Master, going through the cleansing/transition process and didn't want to be around anyone at the time. I went, did my thing, and left. I never saw the woman after that, so I don't know if the healing worked for long or not.
