When a patient comes to me requesting a Reiki treatment, I know they’re ready to release old energy, patterns, and/or beliefs that no longer serve them. They may be fully aware of this, or just know on a subconscious level that whatever they’ve been doing has not been working. The idea of experiencing a Reiki session to balance their chakras seems to just feel right.
Reiki is an energy healing technique that uses “hands-on” and also “hands-off” healing. This technique can assist in relieving or reducing pain and discomfort by balancing the body’s energy centers, more commonly known as the chakras. It is a natural process that supports relaxation and healing by removing blocks to the flow of energy in your body and facilitates balance and support on all levels.
The reason why Reiki can be so powerful and effective is because it infuses your chakras and your body, with Universal light energy. Your body takes exactly what it needs to at that point in time. As a practitioner, my responsibility is to simply act as a conduit for Universal energy in order to help healing take place optimally, so that your body can heal itself.
Since Reiki helps us clear energy blocks in our chakras, it is no surprise that a patient feels much more grounded, calm and relaxed after a session. Some even take a nap during the treatment! Whether awake or napping, Reiki works for the patient’s highest good.
My practice is in the heart of New York City, a wonderful metropolis full of opportunities — and stimulation! For those of us who are highly sensitive and easily pick up on the energy of others, living in a big city can sometimes overwhelm our sympathetic nervous system.
What happens when our sympathetic nervous system is taxed? Our bodies go into fight-or-flight mode, and our survival instincts are set into motion.
