Reiki & Energy Work

What is Reiki/Energy Work

Reiki is a non-invasive “hands on” energy healing modality. It works with each individual’s life force energy or “ki”, the energy that is in and around all living things. The effects of harsh situations such as stress or illness can impact the balance and flow of this energy through the body’s subtle energy fields (aura, chakras, and meridians). Reiki assists in re-establishing positive flow, bringing a feeling of peacefulness, harmony and balance. A Reiki practitioner simply acts as a vessel for the energy by placing their hands in various positions around the body during at treatment. Reiki is not a religion and holds no doctrines or creeds – it is open to everyone who wishes to receive the energy.

Chakra Work

According to ancient Ayurveda, (knowledge of healing body/mind connections), chakras are invisible disks of spinning energy located throughout our bodies. There are 7 main chakras in the body – each one represents a physical, emotional and energetic portion of ourselves and sends energy to the nearby organs, bones and tissues. These energy databases absorb and transform energy into nourishment for our physical, emotional and spiritual selves. If we experience situations in life that may have come from stress, negativity or illness, they can imprint and get stuck in the chakras. Closed, blocked, or enlarged chakras can diminish our energy; we could feel listless, tired, depressed or emotional. Clearing and releasing the energy helps us to achieve overall body/mind well-being.

What can this therapy treatment do for me?

Reiki can lessen stress, anxiety and fatigue, improve circulation, lower blood pressure, relieve headaches, aid sleep and assist with pain. The most common benefit is the comforting, relaxing and peaceful feeling that most people experience during a session and often for days and months afterwards. - Reiki is subjective and subtle as it is combined with the desire of the individual to work on self-healing and wellbeing on emotional, physical and spiritual levels. The intention of Reiki energy is to go where it needs to go for the greatest good of the individual. - Chakra balancing is another form of energy work to attain balance and body/mind harmony. When we know the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual meanings in our chakras and practice opening and clearing them, we become aware of how we can help ourselves to heal, feel more peaceful, grounded, energized and confident.

What to expect

Reiki can be given while the client is lying on a massage table or sitting in a chair. The client remains fully clothed. The practitioner places their hands in various positions, including around the head, shoulders, stomach and feet. Hand placements are non-invasive and can be held gently on or over the body. The experience of receiving Reiki can be felt differently by each individual - recipients may feel sleepy, peaceful, relaxed or drift off into a meditative state. Often one may experience sensations such as tingling, muscle release, or a glowing warmth or pulsation from the practitioner’s hands. Most people feel that it is a very comforting and personal experience. Reiki can leave one feeling refreshed and balanced. Therapists remove their ego when giving a treatment; the practitioner is simply a clear channel for the energy work to flow through - Reiki has a positive effect on all types of illnesses and is an excellent stress and anxiety reduction tool

         For chakra work, the client lies on a massage table fully clothed. Chakra work can involve assessment of chakra spin, breath work, meditation, aromatherapy, visualization, Reiki and/or polarity energy treatments and affirmations.

Almost no contraindications; everyone can receive Reiki – even children and pets, as it can do absolutely no harm - While it is important to always see medical health professionals for one’s health needs; Reiki is complimentary to all medical treatments including drugs, surgery and other medical health care.  Reiki is an alternative holistic treatment and works excellent in conjunction with regular medicine and other alternative therapies.

Note: Reiki practitioners do not diagnose or prescribe. - Reiki and Chakra work can turn on and assist with an individual’s self-healing desires, but it is up to each individual how they wish to receive the energy and how to manifest it into their lives to achieve body/mind well-being.  With either treatments, it is important for people to know that Reiki, chakra balancing, energy work and meditation are simple stress reduction and relaxation techniques.
