“When we give ourselves the chance to let go of all our tension, the body’s natural capacity to heal itself can begin to work.”  Thich Nhat Hanh

Wecome to Heart of Reiki. Anita is the founder and teacher of Heart of Reiki in Armadale, nearby the CBD in Melbourne. Anita practices and teaches the system of Reiki, a Japanese traditional art of meditation practises. It is both hands on/off healing and a spiritual practise to reveal ones innermost true essence. This true essence is about remembering what is and what has always been within you, but sometimes covered up with worry, anger and fears. During the practises and gentleness,  reiki assists to disolve these fears with a feeling of being more at ease, more relaxed and more at peace. Connecting with this beautiful ancient wisdom of light, your energetic both field inside and outside will grow and expand filling your heart and the hearts of all you cross paths with.

Anita’s curiosity with life, spirituality and complimentary healings started in her early childhood after the sudden loss of her elder brother and later her dog. She started having Reiki sessions in 1996 during her pregnancy, carrying her third child. The deep sense of connection and peace, from her sessions carried her into a blissful and loving labour and birth.

The memories of the many calming and relaxing Reiki treatments that followed, led her to learn Reiki for herself. Learning Reiki was the begining of disolving many deep and painful occurences

Anita has trained Reiki with 4 different teachers. She continues to train mainly with her current teacher,  Frans Steine, founder of the International House of Reiki.

Her love for animals led Anita to travel to Orlando Florida where she trained with Kathleen Prasad, founder of Animal Reiki Source. This was a truly heart opening experience from the many meditations experienced together with all the exotic animals at The Care Foundation.

Anita practises Tibetan Buddhism with Teacher Lama Tendar and recently started practising Zen Buddhism. She sees that in essence the principles of Reiki and Buddhism are about remembering ones true self. The true self is always available and shines so bright.A softening of pain and suffering is experienced as we focus and cultivate our inner seeds of happiness, gatitude and the warmth of compassion.

Anita volunteers and supports ARC, The Australian Reiki Connection Association and Robyn’s Rescue for Animals. She is also a host for International students, often teaching and gifting them Reiki to directly experience for themselves. She lives in the heart of Armadale with her family, fur babes and loves spending time with her beautiful granddaughter Bella and also looking forward to the arrival of her second grandchild.
