What is Reiki?
Reiki is an ancient Japanese-based healing technique which reduces stress and promotes relaxation, thereby enhancing the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
What happens during a Reiki treatment?
During a Reiki treatment, the practitioner will work with the body’s energy system to establish equilibrium for self-healing, through laying hands on or above the client’s body. The practitioner will scan for energetic blocks and work within the client’s own energetic field to shift the flow of energy and remove these blocks, creating a balanced energy field. The practitioner may incorporate crystals, sounds, aromatherapy and other modalities to improve the power of the treatment, as well as ensure more lasting results.
How does it work?
There is an intricately layered vibrational energy field that surrounds and penetrates the physical body. It is this energy that is life in the physical body, otherwise known as “life force energy.” The free flow of this energy is associated with wellness and high functioning of the individual. However, when blockages occur, the individual often experiences malaise, illness, depression, or even feeling “stuck” in one or several areas of their lives. Reiki healing brings about deep relaxation, destroys energy blockages, aids in detoxifying the system, provides new vitality in the form of healing energy, and increases the vibrational frequency of the body. There is increasing research evidence documenting the effects of Reiki such as lowered heart rate, blood pressure, and stress hormones; increased immune strength being a direct result from a shift in the body from stress response to relaxation response, thereby supporting the body’s own healing mechanisms.
What is chakra balancing?
The chakra system is a system of energy centers, located along the midline of the body. There are seven main chakras, which are all affiliated with a color, organ or organ system, an endocrine gland, a part of the nervous system and an aspect of consciousness. Each chakra influences our body in unique physical, emotional, mental and spiritual ways. By balancing and energizing each of these centers, one will be left feeling a strong sense of well-being, clarity and relaxation.

What is an attunement?
In Japanese, this ceremony is called Reiju (pronounced Ray-joo) and translated, it means spiritual energy blessing. In a modern day ceremony, your body moves into a spiritual state (or universal energy state) through the use of ancient sounds or symbols, which harmonize your mental and emotional bodies, plus also aligns your spiritual essence within to re-connect you to your true “self” (or your soul). The attunement also clears your meridians (energy pathways) throughout your body to allow Ki energy to flow freely. The main purpose of an attunement is to raise your energy level, plus strengthen your connection to universal spiritual energy.
