What is Reiki?

Reiki (Pronounced ray-key) is a 'laying on hands' healing technique for enhancing the quality of life in all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual.

The word 'Rei' means universal meaning that it is present everywhere.

The word 'ki' means the same as Chi in Chinese. Ki is life energy also known as the vital life force or the universal life force.

How does Reiki Heal?

Reiki is a spiritually guided energy which allows one to manifest their desires and needs for the highest good of themselves and all connected to them.

Reiki, a religion?

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to receive Reiki other than wanting to be healed.

What are Chakras and how do they work with Reiki?

The word chakra is an ancient Sanskrit word meaning “wheel”

Chakras are part of the human energy system. There are seven main chakras that run from the base of the spine to the top of the head. These chakras are said to resemble a funnel that becomes wider as it gets farther away from the body. Each chakra vibrates to a specific tone and colour.

Our chakras are affected by our daily life. For example, a positive experience such as a warm hug from a loved one will affect the state of chakras positively.

The same can be said for negative experiences. Depending on the experience, one or more of the chakras can be disrupted and cause a feeling of disease or unpleasantness in the body.

The seven main chakras correspond to the endocrine glandular system of the human body.

Some of the most vital processes in our bodies are controlled by our hormone regulations. For example, the way we age, our growth, reproductive systems, metabolism, stress reactions and our ability to heal are all connected with the hormones secreted by the endocrine system.

The chakras align with the seven main endocrine glands. During a Reiki treatment the physical body (endocrine glands) and the energetic body (the chakras) are filled with Chi or life force energy to create balance.
