The form of Reiki specific to my family line, it is the practice of allowing Universal/Divine subtle energy forces to flow through the provider and directing toward a recipient. This energy interacts with the energy of the recipient in order to activate their own healing mechanisms.  During a Jierasu Reiki session, the following also occurs:

  • Tuning of major and minor chakras to create harmony between energy centers and all else.
  • Clearing and redirection of Qi through meridian channels.



A form of therapy focused specifically on working within the subconscious mind to create healing or change behavior in relation to a medical condition.

While general hypnotherapists help people change a variety of unwanted behaviors or address issues related to various anxieties (such as fears, phobias, insomnia), medical hypnotherapists have advanced training to provide assisted healing for individuals with a variety of diagnosed medical and mental health conditions and often work in partnership with medical or mental health professionals.


The use of audio frequencies to stimulate an individual’s healing response by gently synchronizing mental patterns and waves.  The application of sound therapy is especially effective with those living with conditions that create emotional or mental instability or memory issues.


A subtle form of bio-energy therapy designed to work with the body’s microcirculation system, allowing your blood to more effectively transport oxygen, nutrients, and immune cells while flushing out metabolic waste.  In essence, it returns the physical body to a stronger, healthier state so that the recipient’s self-healing systems can work more  efficiently and is also a wonderful form of therapy for animals with a variety of health concerns.


Mel LLeras, (aka Jierasu Meru) along with his wife, Catherine, is the founder of the Center for Behavioral Health and Spirituality (previously 460’s Journal | Sanctuary for Health & Healing).

Mel first moved to the USA from Japan in his late teen years. However, even after coming to this country, he spent much time continuing to travel the world and living in countries such as China, Korea, and Ukraine – picking up various forms of training in healing modalities both culturally and through Universities.  This includes time spent living and working with native tribes in the Western USA. He continues to honor his training and his teachers, not simply by what he does… but by what he does not do, such as claiming titles and mastery over cultural practices that are not of his own culture, regardless of his level of practice within it.

Mel uses his experience and training now to work with adults and adolescents. He stabilizes their emotional and mental states and enhances their physical health systems by assessing and working with the person’s bio-energy fields and subconscious mind.

Mel’s work involves empowering people to strengthen their self-confidence, discover their identity, heal wounds from the past, and create alignment and synchronicity between their physical, emotional, mental, and metaphysical states.  It’s not uncommon for him to combine therapies within a session to achieve the necessary results for continued forward progress.

Mel understands that when this alignment can be achieved and maintained, both the body and the mind can function optimally.  Thus allowing the individual to work through afflictions, disease, conditions, injuries, deterioration, states of mind, etc., much more effectively.


You should seek to work with Mel in private sessions if:

  • You are seeking complimentary therapy to medical treatment to alleviate/manage a diagnosis affecting the physical body – and would like to restore your body’s natural ability to heal so that those treatments are more effective.
  • You are seeking complimentary therapy to your work with a licensed therapist to manage a mental health diagnosis – and would like to restore your mind’s natural ability to regulate itself/function normally so that the work you do with your therapist is more effective..
  • You are carrying trauma and would like the assistance of bio-energy therapy to release it.
  • You are being treated for addiction and would like the assistance of bio-energy therapy to become independent and free.
  • You have general feelings of being lost, joylessness, as if something is wrong with you that you can’t put your finger, (or other general feelings that might be related to depression/anxiety) and would like to use bio-energy therapy to help harmonize your bio-energy fields to help you restore purpose, joy, and clarity.
  • You feel as if you have lost your identity and would like the assistance of bio-energy therapy to regain your sense of self and create a permanent state of stability
  • You are questioning your identity, sexual orientation, gender, or your place in your community and would like to connect personally and directly to your higher self for guidance.
  • You are seeking to explore forms of metaphysical Soul Healing (i.e., karmic release, past life regression, etc.)

Mel’s skill in understanding and working with the bio-energy fields of the body as a specialist in this field transcends beyond the human form. Working with animals in a healing capacity isn’t option, but a calling for Mel.

He views his contribution in this area as more than simply offering healing support to the animal. In the case of domestic animals, Mel teaches their guardians and caretakers how to perceive and respond to their needs. This is especially important in cases of chronic or terminal heath conditions, surgical procedures, and anxiety or behavioral concerns so that a care plan can be implemented at home without complete dependence on the practitioner.

As with people, Mel works with licensed professionals such as veterinarians to provide support. He does not replace the expertise and care only a vet can provide.

$35 – 20 min


Sessions can vary widely between clients based on the specific reason they are seeking help and their subconscious profiles, but all are delivered through video cam or telephone.

Some factors that affect theory of treatment are:

  • Blocks and areas of resistance that you have created through negative experiences in your  life
  • Level and type of emotional support you have beyond our office
  • What your diet and activity level looks like (physical and mental)
  • How your subconscious mind processes specific information, words, and phrases
  • The type of medication and/or recreational drugs you may be taking
  • Your sleep habits
  • Your dominant bio-energy field
  • Belief systems

Our approach is that of integrating all four of your main energetic states:

  1. Physical
  2. Emotional
  3. Mental
  4. Metaphysical

Our processes are designed specifically to bring harmony between your various health systems so that your body and/or your mind are elevated into a state of self-healing.  It’s in this state that one might recover faster from disease, sicknesses, addiction, or injuries. In addition, stability, acuity, clarity, and focus are examples of improvements experienced on the emotional or mental levels.  In essence, every theory of treatment produced is completely unique to that individual.

The appointment begins by reviewing the past week and experiences related to the work you are doing.  Mel is paying great attention to and peeling away layers – forcing you to break boundaries and access your deepest potential for change and healing.  His techniques create revelations, growth, and are the catalyst for accelerated physical healing.

For many, your energy fields are assessed using special equipment to map out energy flow as well as identify how your emotional/mental states are affecting your physical organs and systems.

During the treatment portion of the session, multiple events are occurring simultaneously using gentle and non-invasive techniques.  They are designed specifically for your unique needs in order to achieve (though not limited to) the following:

  • Facilitate changes in behavior
  • Alter how you respond to stress
  • Strengthen self-identity, confidence, and esteem
  • Break down limiting belief systems
  • Improve how your body responds to physical trauma or disease
  • Improve how your brain responds to afflictions of the mind, create
  • Stabilize emotional/mental faculties
  • Better regulate hormones
  • Improve oxygen/waste exchange in your cells
  • Enhance the ability of your tissues and organs to regenerate healthy cells and thus function better
  • Accelerate the body’s natural ability to heal
  • Strengthen the immune system
  • Accelerate healing
  • Release past trauma

At the conclusion of a treatment session, you may feel completely different or you may not.  It really is dependent upon how your energy fields flow through your body.
