Our projects accept therapists trained to National Occupational Standards in Reiki and / or Spiritual Healing.

The House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology report on the use of Complementary and Alternative Therapies (CAM) stated the following in relation to therapies within Group 2 - which includes Reiki & Spiritual Healing;

"We are satisfied that many therapies listed in our Group 2 give help and comfort to many patients when used in a complementary sense to support conventional medical care"

"In relieving stress, in alleviating side effects (for example of various forms of anti-cancer therapy) and in giving succour to the elderly and in palliative care they often fulfil an important role".

The SBSHT healing therapists, who work within the NHS and other health areas, are proud to be part of a multi-disciplinary team of professionals to provide vital support cancer patients, their relatives and staff.

Reiki is a Group 2 complementary therapy as stated in the House of Lords published report of 2000It  is increasingly used in healthcare alongside conventional treatments.

Reiki is a gentle form of therapy that originates from Japan. Pronounced ray-key, Reiki means 'universal life energy'  in Japanese. 

The Reiki Therapist uses simple hands-on or non-touch techniques to channel healing to the patient. This allows their energy field to rebalance, which in turn may ease symptoms physically, mentally and emotionally.

The person receiving Reiki remains clothed and can be lying down or sitting in a chair. Most people who receive Reiki find the experience very relaxing, as it may reduce anxiety, improve energy levels, aid restful sleep and reduce some of the symptoms experienced during their cancer treatment. 

Spiritual Healing is a Group 2 complementary therapy as stated in the House of Lords published report of 2000. It is increasingly used in healthcare alongside conventional treatments.

Spiritual Healing is a natural, non-invasive, holistic approach that has the intention of promoting self-healing, to bring a sense of well-being and peace to the client. 

When we become unwell physically, emotionally or mentally this has an unbalancing effect on our energy field.

A healer channels energy through his or her hands (either laying hands on the body or held off the body) which allows the energy field to rebalance. This in turn may ease symptoms physically, mentally and emotionally.

Healing can either be carried out in the presence of the client or by way of ‘remote healing’, otherwise commonly called ‘distant or absent healing’.

As many of the centres we have worked with have employed more than one healer in different areas within cancer, this totals over 35  healers within hospitals or Hospices that have been funded since 2006 by our charity.

We do not employ healers ourselves; the NHS or Hospice does, on a fixed term contract with full terms and conditions.

Our unique Healing in Hospitals and Hospices training is a prerequisite to approaching a hospital if the therapist wishes to access funds from our charity. Knowing how and who to approach has helped many healers to make the intitial approach in their geographical area.

Once the therapist has made the initial approach we then pick up the possible project and liaise direct with the hospital/hospice. Once agreed the recruiting hospital advertises the post.

So what does the Hospital or Hospice do following the initial approach from a healer?

        We need to be contacted direct by the Hospital or Hospice (H/H)

♥     We will then request to visit the H/H to see how and where the therapist will be working with 


♥    The therapist must be able to work in an integrated way with patients, relatives and staff

♥    A minimum of 6 patients must be seen per day (30 minute sessions)

♥    Once we have agreed the project we will donate funds into any suitable NHS or related fund

♥    The vacancy will usually be advertised on NHS jobs website or internally if appropriate

♥    The therapist will be given an NHS fixed term contract

♥   The charity has policy, protocols and job descriptions available to govern Reiki / Spiritual Healing

       if the recruiting centre requires this information

♥    Similar projects elsewhere are banded 4 or 5 within the Agenda for Change system

♥   The therapist will be required to wear a SBSHT polo shirt and provide us with quarterly reports

♥    Projects are a maximum of 15 hours per week for one year initially

NB: The therapist is not self-employed and will hold an NHS or Hospice contract once a project is agreed.
