What is Reiki?

Reiki is an energy-healing method that encourages relaxation and helps reduce anxiety and stress through a gentle touch. Reiki specialists usually use their hands to deliver energy to a patient’s body, thus enhancing the balance and flow of their energy to support healing. Reiki is a healing technique that originated in the early 20th century in Japan. 

Based on the International Center for Reiki Training, this natural healing method is based on the belief that everyone has an unseen “life force energy” that flows through their bodies. Today, Reiki is used around the globe, and patients have reported positive outcomes. Reiki is also referred to as hands-on healing or palm healing.

How is Reiki for Mental Health Beneficial?

Reiki treatment is becoming popular and widely available in mental health facilities, hospitals, and private practices. In fact, symptoms of many illnesses, such as mental health disorders and substance abuse, can be relieved by this therapy. 

Helping Reduce Stress Levels & Encouraging Relaxation

According to research, Reiki sessions can help reduce stress, anxiety, and depression. Also, it helps with chronic pain that can cause or worsen sadness and anxiety. Difficulty coping makes it difficult to treat chronic pain, which can affect your mental health. 

Research has shown that Reiki helps people reduce stress, which is linked to most ailments. Many health benefits of Reiki are based on the following factors about stress.

  • Triggering gastrointestinal issues since hormones like ghrelin and leptin regulate the so much and brain
  • Resulting in irregular heart rhythms, which can result in stroke or angina
  • Leading to eating disorders like binge eating disorder or anorexia nervosa
  • Arising mood disorders and other psychological issues

Helping with Emotional Pain

Taking care of the emotional side of suffering can help minimize perception and develop tolerance. Even though it’s unclear whether chronic pain leads to mental health issues, there is a link. 

The mental and emotional health aspects of pain might have a significant influence on pain tolerance and perception. Reiki treatment can help minimize pain perception by relieving emotional suffering. The therapy is supposed to reduce emotional discomfort by enabling healing energy to flow effortlessly throughout your body.  Reiki can help reduce pain perception by lessening tension and anxiety.

Helping with Emotional Blockages

Reiki can help with balancing emotions in various ways. Reiki energy can help release anxiety, stress, and tension in the body. This release can lead to better sleep as well as mental clarity, thus enabling better focus. For this reason, enhanced harmony and natural balance between the mind, body, and spirit are promoted. 

The objective of Reiki is to remove obstructions and eliminate negative energy during treatment sessions. This technique of removing bad energy helps heal emotional trauma experienced in the past.

How Does Reiki Treatment Work?

The Reiki technique heals by flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging it with positive energy. It increases the vibratory field energy level in and around the body, where negative feelings and thoughts are attached. By doing this, Reiki straightens, clears, and heals the energy pathways, enabling your force to flow naturally and healthily.

This force rejuvenates the cells and organs of the body, supporting them in their functions. Once this force is disrupted, it makes one or many organs and tissues not function as expected. Your life force responds to your thoughts and feelings. 

Usually, the force is disrupted when acceptance, consciously or unconsciously, occurs of negative feelings or thoughts about yourself. These negative feelings and thoughts attach themselves to the energy field, thus affecting the natural flow of your life force. This affects the vital function of your physical body and organs.

What Our Clients Say


Even though I’m not religious, I realized when I got sober that for the first time in my life I wanted to explore my spiritual side. I benefited hugely from the individual spiritual sessions that I had with Chris. I’m really grateful for that aspect of the whole treatment experience.


Solara was truly a life-changing experience for me and for our children, because of what you did for my wife! The treatment team was phenomenally supportive and perfect for helping her with her anxiety and depression. We are all now moving forward to put our lives back together and it started with you all in Pacific Beach. Thank you for what you do.

Michelle Family

I want to thank you and the entire staff and support system at Solara for taking such good care of my sister. On behalf of my entire family, we want you all to understand that your patience and kindness stretches further than you can see… Thank you, again and again, from the bottom of my heart.

M.P. – Father

Your program provided our daughter with the most masterful therapist we have ever encountered (and we have used many).  She has had an unbelievable ability to see the long-term trajectory of our daughter’s treatment and to approach her treatment in stages that fit where my daughter’s development was.  We can’t say enough positive about her.

R.M. – Father

If not for Solara Mental Health, I am almost positive that our daughter would not be as advanced in her treatment, and would not have the almost miraculous confident and positive outlook that she has.
