Forskning på Reiki görs i många olika länder, men USA ligger i framkant. Det beror mycket på The Center of Reiki Research vars uppgift och mål är att genomföra studier på Reiki och dess effekter. The Center of Reiki Research har vuxit fram ur International Center of Reiki Training som är en stor aktör i Reikivärlden.
