Reiki is a spiritual healing art of “laying on of hands” in order to heal, with its roots in Japanese origin, discovered by Dr. Mikao Usui in the early 20th century.
The word Reiki comes from the Japanese word
(Rei) which means “Universal Life” or “Higher Power or Intelligence” &
(Ki) which means “Energy or Life Force”.
(Ki) is also known as “Chi” or “Prana” in other cultures.
Reiki is not affiliated with any particular religion or religious practice.
It is not massage nor is it based on belief or suggestion.
It is a subtle and effective form of energy work using spiritually guided life force energy, which is channeled through the Reiki practitioner to the patient.
It is the life energy that flows through all living things.
Reiki is a natural, holistic practice that heals the mind, body and soul collectively.
Reiki Practitioners understand that everyone has the ability to connect with their own healing energy and use it to strengthen energy in themselves and help others.
The human body has 7 main chakras, or energy points, that overlay the physical body, and correspond to the 7 main nerve ganglia along the spinal cord.
In Sanskrit chakra means “wheel” and thus free-flowing spirals of energy wheels within the body, that vibrate at different frequencies and corresponds to various emotions and physical systems.
It is believed that a person’s “ki” or energy should be strong and free flowing through these chakras.
When this is true a person’s body and mind is in a positive state of health.
When the energy becomes weak or blocked it could lead to symptoms of physical or emotional imbalance (also known as disease).
The chakra system is an Eastern philosophy that originated in India between 1500 & 500BC.
Knowledge of this energy system that connects body, mind and spirit was recorded in the oldest texts of India, called the Vedas.
People have balanced their chakras for millennia, to feel more grounded, passionate, confident, loving, expressive, connected and spiritual.
The chakras cycle energy through your energy field, and this is how your aura and the chakra system intertwine. This aura envelopes all living beings, including plants, animals and humans.
Your aura attracts energy and when your aura becomes overloaded, the chakras slow down.
This also results in the presentation of physical symptoms and restricts your ability to manifest your desires.
Your aura, which is the radiance of your soul, is composed of white light and all the colors of the spectrum and can change color based on the health of your body, mind & spirit, as well as state of your emotional field.
Your aura also consists of 7 layers, or subtle bodies, that interact with the body, the chakra system, and your immediate environment.
Your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual condition, as well as your awareness, thoughts, feelings, experiences, and health, will be reflected in these layers of the aura.
A Reiki session can help ease tension and stress and can help support the body to facilitate an environment for healing on all levels – physical, mental, and emotional.
It is also pleasant and relaxing and is often utilized for one’s personal wellness and preventative measures.

The term grounding comes from the process of grounding an electrical circuit.
Thus, if an object is negatively charged, grounding allows excess electrons to flow from the object into the earth,
if an object is positively charged,
electrons flow from the earth into the object.
In this way, grounding or earthing is a method of balancing the flow of energy and finding equilibrium by electrically reconnecting to earth.
During grounding, the natural defenses of the body can be restored.
“Centering” during a ReikiSession
Centering gives you perspective about your own energy by allowing you to differentiate between what is yours and what is in the environment around you.
It therefore reinforces your connection to your true self, spirituality, emotions, thoughts and creativity
bringing your energy into focus, helping you to feel more balanced as a whole.
