Can Reiki Help With Anxiety?

8.2 Million Adults Suffered with Anxiety in 2013

How can we help?


What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a type of fear usually associated with the thought of a threat or something going wrong in the future, but can also arise from something happening right now.

Unnatural levels of anxiety may be related to blockages or disturbances in the individual’s energy pathways. Reiki seeks to unblock energy and restore normal flow in order to support the body’s ability to heal itself.

What is Reiki and How Does it Work?

Reiki originated in Japan in the 1800s. The word Reiki comes from the Japanese words “rei” (universal) and “ki” (life energy). It is a non-invasive treatment, using gentle yet powerful hands-on techniques.

During this complementary treatment, the practitioners place their hands on or just above different areas of the body. Working on many different energy levels, reiki is based on the principle that all living beings have energy fields that support their health and vitality. Reiki produces a deep cleansing effect on the mind, body, spirit and emotions.

Physical, mental and emotional illnesses can be as a result of our energy becoming blocked due to:-

  • emotional or physical trauma
  • a physical injury
  • negative thoughts & feelings such as fear, worry, doubt, anger, anxiety
  • lack of good nutrition
  • lifestyle and/or relationships
  • lack of love for yourself or others.

Like acupuncture and reflexology, reiki helps to release stuck energy, thereby allowing our body to activate its own natural ability to heal.

People who have had a reiki treatment have described it as deeply relaxing and have likened it to having 3-4 hours’ sleep.

Reiki is an excellent treatment to help you when facing physical, mental and emotional challenges.

Reiki is a treatment that you can have either in-person or as a Distant Reiki Session

Reiki Employee Wellbeing Workshops

One simple and effective way to reduce stress in the workplace is to invest in your employees. They are the cornerstone of your organisation and their health and wellness is paramount to the stability, success and growth of your business. You may have premises, computers, equipment and a list of potential customers but without motivated, engaged, ambitious employees you will struggle to sell your products or services.

Offering regular Reiki sessions to employees as a stress management tool will help to reduce workplace stress and anxiety. When stress is managed effectively, employee performance increases, absenteeism is reduced and morale improves.

Effects of Reiki on Stressed Employees

Reiki – Reducing office stress & absenteeism

Due to an array of physical, emotional, intellectual and behavioural issues within the workplace, a programme of regular Reiki sessions was trailed.

During this 90-day programme, four participating employees received a 20-minute chair Reiki session every two to three weeks.

The desired outcomes agreed were:

to reduce office stress

reduce production mistakes

reduce unscheduled sickness absences.

At the end of the 90-day programme they found:

on a scale of 1-10, office stress reduced from 9 to 2.5

errors reduced from 55 to 10

sick days reduced from 20 to 5 days.

The results of the study showed that reiki had a large effect on performance and concentration.

It was most certainly the most wonderful experience

I have been the lucky recipient Reiki from Sharon. It was most certainly the most wonderful experience and Sharon made me feel at ease and comfortable throughout the session. I slept incredibly well after my treatment. Thank you Sharon I would recommend your reiki and reflexology to everyone.

Sue, Tamworth

Sharon is warm and welcoming

I had my first reiki treatment with Sharon last week and it honestly left me feeling so relaxed. Sharon is warm and welcoming and completely put me at ease! I left my treatment floating on cloud 9! I will look forward to enjoying many more treatments with Sharon in the future!

Sarah, Tamworth

Since having regular treatments I’m now able to deal with stress better

When I decided to start having regular treatments with Sharon I was looking for some stress relief and ways of improving my sleep. I booked a course of weekly treatments over 12 weeks. My course started with reiki and guided meditation then a few weeks later facial reflexology was added which I found so relaxing. Since having regular treatments I’m now able to deal with stress better, I’m enjoying better sleep and I’m devoting time to myself for relaxation. I now feel better prepared when dealing with stressful situations and I’m also spending time meditating.

Sharon was lovely – made me feel at home and comfortable.

A close friend had recommended Complete Harmony to me and actually booked my 3 sessions with Sharon. I was a bit worried about going as suffering with anxiety but Sharon was lovely – made me feel at home and comfortable. I had 3 sessions with Sharon and felt better after each visit it was so relaxing and calm. I had reflexology and reiki. I would highly recommend Complete Harmony and will be going back for some me-time.

Charlene, Birmingham

After my reiki sessions I felt more relaxed and peaceful.

I first visited Sharon for treatments back in 2015. Recently, when I started feeling anxious and in need of help relaxing I contacted Sharon again. I booked 3 treatments over six weeks which really helped. After my reiki sessions I felt more relaxed and peaceful. Not just immediately after the sessions but later too. I’m now feeling mentally relaxed, less anxious, stronger emotionally and more able to deal with potential issues. Mindfulness is a technique I’m now using to help reduce my overthinking. I’ve also booked in to have monthly treatments with Sharon as I feel this will help to maintain my now reduced anxiety levels.
