When a person feels unbalanced physically, emotionally or mentally, Energy Work aids to restore and realign the body’s subtle vibrations. Two favorite modalities are Reiki and Chakra Healing.

This workshop is an introduction to both Reiki and Chakra Healing and will provide you with a Chakra Balancing and experience with Reiki Energy.

The word Reiki can be translated as “universal life energy.” The Usui System works with Reiki for healing oneself or others. Reiki practitioners place their hands on or over the part of the body that needs balancing and channels energy into the body. This may be felt as a temperature change or tingling or just deep relaxation.

Chakras are the circular vortexes of energy that are located in seven different points on the spinal column, and all the seven chakras are connected to various organs and glands within the body. Chakra Healing balances these seven chakras, bringing the body and emotions into balance.
