Catholics say no to reiki

Thanks to Quackwatch for this link: the US Conference of Catholic Bishops have said that “For a Catholic to believe in Reiki therapy presents insoluble problems. In terms of caring for one’s physical health or the physical health of others, to employ a technique that has no scientific support (or even plausibility) is generally not prudent.”

So, will the NHS take the hint, follow suit, and suggest that this alternative therapy is dropped from being funded?
