WHAT IS REIKI

Reiki is a universal life force energy. Reiki is a form of alternative therapy of energy healing. It was rediscovered by Master Mikao Usui in Japan in the late 1800’s. Reiki is a simple, natural, and safe method of energy healing. Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and works well if u believe it or not. Reiki works on energy that flows through the Palms of the Reiki healer, who is attuned by the Reiki Master or Grandmaster. 


Stagnate energy in the human body can cause energy blocks in chakras and the physical body. That creates physical and mental illness. Reiki energy clears the blocks and allows the energy to flow through all the chakras smoothly. Reiki can help with mental, physical, emotional & various other issues like financial issues etc. It also helps to heal the future or past. It’s no-touch healing and can be done at distance also, no matter how far you are from the HEALER. It works wonders in all aspects. 


What are chakras?

The Sanskrit word chakra means “plexus,” “wheel,” or “vortex.” It refers to several centres in the subtle anatomy of the human being, with each centre corresponding to a different level of consciousness. 

Each Chakra relates to specific spiritual, emotional, psychological, and physical aspects of our beings, it is said that the blockage or malfunction of the chakras can lead to physical, psychological, and emotional disorders. Reiki Is one of the modalities to heal and balance the chakras.
