Reiki for Healing Depression and Anxiety
Can Reiki heal depression and anxiety?
Let’s find out…
“Depression is the absence of being able to envisage that you will be cheerful again. The absence of hope.”
~ J. K. Rowling, Author of The Harry Potter Series
What causes depression?
When a person is unable to express, or deliberately suppressed emotions, it affects their mental well-being, leading to depression.
The two major causes of depression are:
- Stress: In today’s excessively fast-paced and over-competitive world, stress is quite common, not only in adults but also in children. At times, this stress increases to an extent where it leads to anxiety and eventually depression.
- Pain: Chronic physical or mental pain can diminish a person’s ability to think clearly and function normally. Such people tend to lose interest in everything and fall into depression.
What are the signs of depression?
“All it takes is a beautiful fake smile to hide an injured soul and they will never notice how broken you really are.”
~ Robin Williams, Famous American Comedian and Actor
Though Robin Williams made people around the world laugh, he was unable to feel happiness within himself, which ultimately led him to end his life. So, look for these signs before it’s too late:
- Slouchy body posture.
- Slow, lethargic body movements.
- Lack of enthusiasm.
- Loss of memory.
- Lack of love for self and others.
- Procrastination, insecurity, nervousness, under-confidence, anti-social.
Can Reiki heal depression?
While the first and preferred means of treatment is usually professional counselling and medication, alternative healing therapy such as Reiki can help remove the stress and pain accumulated in the body, making the person feel clear-headed and light. This claim is supported by research studies which reveal that Reiki helps reduce stress and chronic pain, which in turn heals anxiety and depression.
How does Reiki help treat depression?
Reiki is an energy healing technique that involves channeling the universal cosmic energy to restore a person’s physical and mental well-being. According to the founder of FaithHealers and renowned Reiki expert – Geeta Sharma –depending upon the complexity of the case, just about a few weeks of Reiki healing therapy is enough to get the client to open up about the fears, insecurities and challenges that are keeping them stuck in their heads. Overtime, with regular Reiki healings, the person becomes confident enough to come out of his or her self-imposed shell and starts living life with enthusiasm.

Geeta Sharma also finds Psychic attack therapy and Psychic surgeries helpful in relieving Cancer patients. Crystal healing along with Reiki therapy multiplies Reiki effect according to her. But she stresses very clearly that there is no scientific evidence to prove that Reiki can prevent, treat or cure cancer and should be done along with modern medical treatment and in full knowledge of your doctor.
