Psychotherapy Services in Utah


Reiki is a form of energy healing that has been shown to be effective in improving mental health concerns, such as anxiety, depression, and stress. This non-invasive and gentle approach to healing is based on the concept that energy flows throughout the body and can become blocked, leading to physical, emotional, and mental imbalances. By using hands-on or hands-off techniques, a reiki practitioner can help to clear these blockages and promote the natural healing process.

Reiki Benefits



One of the key benefits of reiki is its ability to reduce stress and promote relaxation. Stress is a common contributor to mental health concerns, and can lead to physical symptoms such as:

Reiki can help to reduce stress by promoting a state of deep relaxation, which can help to reduce tension in the body and promote feelings of calm and well-being.

In addition to reducing stress, reiki can also be effective in treating symptoms of anxiety and depression. Studies have shown that reiki can help to reduce anxiety symptoms, such as feelings of nervousness and tension, and can improve mood in individuals with depression. Reiki can also help to promote a sense of inner peace and well-being, which can be particularly beneficial for individuals dealing with the emotional toll of these conditions.


Reiki can also be beneficial for individuals dealing with trauma or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Trauma can lead to physical and emotional imbalances in the body, and can contribute to symptoms such as:

Reiki can help to promote relaxation, reduce tension, and promote feelings of safety and security, which can be helpful for individuals working through trauma.


Another benefit of reiki is its ability to promote self-awareness and mindfulness. By focusing on the present moment and becoming more aware of the body and its sensations, individuals can learn to manage their thoughts and emotions more effectively. This can be particularly helpful for individuals dealing with mental health concerns, as it can help them become more aware of their triggers and learn to manage their symptoms more effectively.


Reiki is also a non-invasive and drug-free treatment option, making it a safe choice for individuals who may not want to take medication or who have experienced negative side effects from medication. It can be used in conjunction with other treatment approaches, such as talk therapy or medication, to provide a comprehensive approach to mental health care.

Dr. Bullock’s patients who have been engaging in Reiki healing alongside their talk-therapy have found great benefit in their ability to let go of old trauma and allow the body/mind to become “un-stuck.” Reiki in combination with talk-therapy or Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy is a powerful combination for healing. It is important to address problems, concerns, and traumas, from different perspectives and with different tools.
