What is Reiki?



Definition: Reiki is a healing technique based on the principle that the therapist energy into the client by means of touch, to activate the natural healing processes of the clients body and restore physical and emotional well-being.

Although Reiki has traditionally been used as a healing system, it is also extremely effective as a way to help individuals increase awareness, insight, wisdom and personal growth.

Our bodies are made up of water and electrical frequencies. There are low and high frequencies throughout the body. When a practitioner is performing a healing session, the energy that emanates from their hands produce a significantly larger bio magnetic reading than a non-practitioner. These frequencies are associated with physical healing.



Chakra means spinning wheel of energy or energy centre in Sanskrit. Each of these centres is associated with specific organs, endocrines, issues, emotions, colors and elements. Balancing these centres can have a physical, emotional and spiritual effect on an individual.

It is not only important that each individual chakra be balanced, but that they also be balanced in relationship to each other. The lower three chakras are considered masculine in nature and call us to action. They help to ground us and are usually concerned with the material world. The higher three chakras are feminine in nature and are associated with self-reflection and the spiritual aspects of life. The heart chakra is balanced in masculine and feminine energy and can help to balance other chakras.

In a Reiki session you will not only be balancing physical aspects of your body, but also their energetic centers. By balancing these centers, the physical body will also be addressed.
