Chakras are energy centers through which energy enters and leaves our bodies.

A chakra (which means “vortex: in Sanskrit) can best be described as a circle of energy, spinning at its own frequency to ensure that the Ki (universal life force) is maintained within our body.

When we are feeling good and happy, our chakras are open and spinning evenly creating a balanced aura. When we are feeling depressed, sad or stressed, the chakras will be depleted and some blockages will appear.

If not treated over time, this can affect not only a person’s well-being, but his/her entire life.

A ‘block’ is a place where energy is trapped and not flowing openly. Blocked chakras can result in illness and imbalance, affecting both our body and mind. Reiki can help to restore each chakra to its optimal energy flow, creating balance within the body. Once all chakras are aligned and energy flows freely, the patient will experience a general sense of well-being and harmony.

As the chakras are connected with specific body parts, during a reiki treatment the practitioner will channel energy through the hands to the patient’s chakras to help restore their optimal flow.
