Abstract—The present study aimed to examine the efficacy of Hands on Reiki on Perceived Stress and Subjective-wellbeing among software professionals. 60 software professionals from a software firm situated at Bangalore who met the inclusion exclusion criteria were taken up for the study. Sample was divided into two groups - experimental and control group (30 in each group). The intervention was carried out for 21 days for the experimental group and the control group was not given any intervention. Both groups were assessed at two time intervals, pre and post-assessment. The Perceived Stress Scale (PSS-14), WHO (five) Wellbeing index and socio demographic checklist was used to assess the participants of both the groups. The obtained data were analysed using descriptive statistics and t-test to assess the significance level between the groups. Results of the study reveal that there is significant reduction in perceived stress and enhancement in subjective wellbeing from pre to post assessments in the intervention group.

Index Terms—Perceived stress, subjective wellbeing, hands on reiki, software professionals.
