Reiki (ray-key) is a hands-on healing modality that supports and works with the body’s energy or chi to balance itself towards better wellness. Reiki has many potential health benefits including stress relief, pain management, and injury recovery assistance, as well as bringing an overall sense of peace and well-being. It also works very well in conjunction with other wellness practices to support overall healing.
There are 7 main chakras housed within our bodies and each chakra is thought of as a spinning vortex of energy that, when aligned and working in harmony, allows us to be our optimal self. When there is an imbalance, stress or trauma within our mind, spirit or physical body it can cause disease. Reiki is used as a healing modality to work to restore energy and balance within the body.
