Workplace Reiki - Employee Wellbeing and Engagement



If you are a Brisbane-based business and you are open to exploring alternative methods as a way of supporting and fostering your employees’ overall health and well-being, either as part of a team-building day or spiritual retreat, then look no further – Reiki is the perfect option!

Workplace Reiki is the practice of bringing Reiki, a spiritual and healing energy technique, into the workplace in an effort to improve overall health and wellbeing, reduce stress, build connections, improve focus and enhance overall job satisfaction.

In today’s fast-paced workplace environment, stress and burnout are common issues that employees face. Many businesses are now exploring alternative methods to promote employee health and well-being and to help employees find a sense of purpose and connection. One such method gaining momentum is Reiki in the workplace.

Below are some of the benefits of offering Reiki in the workplace:

  1. Stress Reduction: The workplace environment can be inherently stressful, with tight deadlines and high-pressure situations. Reiki’s calming and balancing effects can help employees manage stress, leading to increased resilience and better mental health.
  2. Mental Health Support: Mental health issues are a growing concern in the workplace. Wellbeing programs that offer counselling services, stress management practices/workshops, and mental health resources can help employees manage their emotional health effectively.
  3. Enhanced Productivity: When employees are less stressed, they tend to be more focused and efficient. Workplace Reiki can help improve concentration, creativity, and problem-solving skills, ultimately benefiting the company’s bottom line.
  1. Improved Employee Morale: Offering holistic wellness practices like Reiki can demonstrate a company’s commitment to its employees’ well-being. This can boost morale, create a more positive work culture, and foster a sense of connection.
  1. Reduced Absenteeism: Employees who feel supported in their well-being are less likely to take sick days. Workplace Reiki can contribute to lower absenteeism rates, ensuring a more consistent workforce.
  1. Alignment with Purpose: When we talk about spirituality, it often involves seeking a sense of purpose and alignment with our true selves. Wellbeing at work plays a significant role in this because a harmonious work environment can help individuals feel more connected to their purpose. When people are happy and fulfilled in their jobs, they’re more likely to see their work as a meaningful part of their life journey.
  1. Boosted Creativity: A relaxed and content mind is more open to creative thinking. When employees feel well and supported, they are more likely to come up with innovative ideas and solutions.


Workplace Reiki can be a valuable addition to a company’s wellness program when implemented thoughtfully. However, it’s essential to approach it with sensitivity. Businesses must ensure that if considering this form of spiritual practice as a wellbeing option, that it aligns with the beliefs, values and culture which represent their business – while in turn, respecting individual beliefs.

By finding the right balance, businesses can create a more harmonious and spiritually aware workplace.
