Reiki has been widely used to complement modern medicine but is received to promote shifts in mind, body and soul. The word Reiki translates to universal life force energy, which we are all connected to. At times our body can become blocked or stagnant with this flow of energy and we see this mainly during challenging times in our lives. Life has us experience all kinds of situations, emotions and feelings which can affect our well-being.
Within the body, we have energy centres called chakras. Chakra is a Sanskrit meaning which translates to wheel or disk. There are seven main chakras in the body, each one associated with parts of our physical and spiritual existence. These can become blocked through past or present situations in our lives. With the help of Reiki, you can gain a flow of universal life force energy to regain balance in the body’s energy system.
Reiki involves gentle or no touch, with hands just above the body, a relaxing and uplifting treatment.
