Reiki & Mental Health

Reiki is an ancient healing art which deeply restores clarity and balance to the physical, emotional and mental system.

Reiki can be used as a tool to balance and harmonize the nervous system, soothe agitation and anxiety, and is widely regarded therapy in conventional and complimentary systems.
As a spiritual tradition, Reiki deepens deepens our awareness of the sense of self, and invokes such higher qualities as equanimity, calmness, courage, fortitude, resilience and forgiveness.

Clients often report that they experience unexpected benefits through Reiki treatment, including a sense of well-being, empowerment and deeper understanding of the root of their disharmony.

Using Reiki together with psychotherapy is a choice you the client make make, to work with Reiki as well as, or instead of, traditional psychotherapy. Reiki is not given without the full informed consent of the client in each session. Reiki sessions are not claimable in the Medicare system, but your private health insurance may offer some rebate.

I have offered Reiki therapy for many years. It is a pleasant and empowering treatment, especially useful for unexplained somatic conditions, trauma, extreme anxiety, depression and OCD. Reiki therapy is available through my Melbourne practice.

There is a small but growing body of evidence that Reiki changes the brain.
