Reiki for Anxiety & Depression
As we move through different phases of life, we also move through ups and downs. Sometimes we carry old beliefs and patterns along with us on our journey, until we realize it’s time to reset and let go of what no longer serves us. Anxiety and depression can be seen differently in everyone. For some people it can just pop up unexpectedly, and for others, it can be something they’ve struggled with for years.
Reiki promotes a natural healing process that can help increase feelings of wellness and relaxation. Struggling with anxiety and/or depression is nothing to be ashamed of – but no one should suffer, and symptoms should be discussed with a mental health professional. Reiki can serve as a wonderful and beneficial practice for patients suffering from anxiety and/or depression when used in conjunction with traditional therapies, but should not be depended on as a sole or primary method of treatment for any mental health condition diagnosed by a professional.

Benefits of Anxiety & Depression Reiki
Better sense of overall mental and physical balance.
Reiki is relaxing. Depression is often accompanied by anxiety however the relaxing nature of Reiki can help combat this anxiety. As one’s anxiety is relieved, his or her depression may improve as well.
Reiki puts you back in control. Many people who are depressed feel like they are not in control of their own lives. When a client participates in Reiki, he or she is doing something proactive, thus restoring some feeling of control.
Reiki allows you to connect with another person. One of the most common symptoms of depression involves withdrawing from friends and family or feeling disconnected from others. Reiki provides depressed clients with the opportunity to connect with a caring, compassionate practitioner, which may improve symptoms.
Reiki relieves stress. Stress can contribute to the development of depression, and ongoing stress can also worsen a depressed person’s symptoms. Reiki may help to relieve some of a client’s stress, which may in turn reduce the symptoms of depression.

What are Chakras?
When the body is perfectly balanced the 7 Chakras give you exactly the right amount of energy in each area. In this day and age there are so many variables that could throw you off. A few examples include pollution, the environment, work, home life, spouse, kids, death, having a baby, any type of stress, sickness and so on.
Since everything in the Universe is made of energy it makes sense that the human body needs to be balanced in energy itself. The strong suggestion would be to balance your Chakras at least 4 times a year, coordinating with each different season as it changes. It’s like house keeping for your body.
