What is Reiki?

Reiki is the universal energy that connects our higher self with everything around us. It is the life force that connects us to all living things because we are made up of energy. This energy goes by many names such as, ki, chi, prana, soul. Science has confirmed the presence of this energy using tools, such as Kirlian Photography, to capture visual proof. With this understanding, many disciplines have been developed to help understand and balance this energy. 


How does Reiki work?

Everyone emits frequencies. In Eastern traditions, this pulse is also known as Ki or Prana. When a practitioner is performing a healing session, the energy that emanates from their hands produces a  much larger bio magnetic reading (7-10 Hz Theta and Alpha range) than a non-practitioner. These frequencies are associated with physical healing.  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.
