Just like there can be blockages in the digestive system (think constipation) or blockages in the blood stream (clogged arteries) there can also be blockages in the energy flows of your body! It is believed by many holistic health practitioners, including us here are SMARTer Bodies, that these blockages can cause a whole wide range of health problems from insomnia, digestion issues, headaches, to even chronic pain and fatigue, among a long list of other issues!
Eastern Medicine, from India’s Ayurveda, Chinese Traditional Medicine, and Japanese Traditional medicine all have it firmly established in their medicinal body of knowledge, that is collectively thousands of years old, that a keystone of good health is the proper flow of energy in the body. Reiki originated from Japan and when translated means “universal life energy”. Reiki is done by an experienced and trained Reiki practitioner who passes their hands over the clients body as well as touching certain key points on the body as well. What this does is transmit targeted energy from the Reiki practitioner to the patient, and the aim is to unblock those energy blockages that have formed. Think of it like unblocking a clogged pipe! It’s a very relaxing process, with the patient feeling warmth, a great sense of well-being and relaxation, and a gentle flow of energy in their body. So it can easily be said that Reiki is about rebalancing the energy pathways, so the body can function at its best! Reiki is very gentle and therefore can help with almost any condition or illness. If you would like to know more about this ancient and highly effective art, feel free to contact us with any questions that you might have. Reiki when done by a qualified and experienced practitioner can deliver a wide variety of benefits than can help improve your health and quality of life in a holistic and balanced way!
