Who we are
Full Circle is a small, award-winning integrated medicine charity specialising in pioneering support for very sick children and adults through integrated therapy. We deliver specialist know-how and much needed evidence-based support to some of the most intensive, complex environments in hospitals.
We rely totally on donations, corporate support and legacies to sustain and develop our work and receive no government or NHS funding.
Connecting Reiki with Medicine
Being diagnosed with a life-limiting condition can be a frightening and upsetting experience. Research suggests the value of integrating Reiki into acute and high dependency hospital settings.
We have introduced Reiki to support very sick children and adults, their carers and staff in areas of critical need at St George’s Hospital. From this, we plan to carry out well designed research studies to add to the evidence base of the benefits of Reiki for patients.
Wholly funded by kind donations, the aim of this pioneering initiative is to introduce, independently evaluate and clinically research Reiki in acute medical settings.
The programme, currently based at St George’s University Hospital, London, is also creating a transferrable clinical training and mentoring programme for Reiki practitioners. This allows them to work on acute and high dependency units in a way which can be more readily accepted by the medical professions in hospitals everywhere.
Our initial target is to raise £90,000 to support this innovative project. To date we have raised over £55,000 but now we urgently need to reach our target.
Please see ‘Our Mission’ for full details of funding requirements.
Your support is needed to fund this pioneering hospital-based project.
All donations through the links on this website will be dedicated exclusively to the Connecting Reiki with Medicine programme at St George’s and to enable the roll out of the programme to other leading NHS hospitals and medical establishments elsewhere.
As little as £2 a month by direct debit will make a difference, or please give as much as you are able.
Each £25/US$32/€30 treats two patients in crisis and covers vital data collection, management and analysis for research purposes.
