As you may have already guessed if you've looked at my website, I'm a Reiki fanatic! I love Reiki healing, but I do acknowledge that it's not the only form of energy healing that exists and many people prefer other methods.

There are many forms of energy healing available to us, from spiritual healing, Qi Gong, therapeutic touch to Reiki and many more. It is really an umbrella term for any form of healing that uses positive life force energy to clear blockages and produce the healing effect.

We ARE energetic beings and everything IS energy. Scientists have proven this to be true

We have an invisible energy body surrounding our physical body. In this energy body are layers. Each layer has different functions and each layer is associated with a different chakra and each chakra and layer both have an effect on areas of the physical body. The chakras and acupuncture points are openings for energy to flow into and out of the aura (energy body).
This energy is associated with a form of consciousness, thus we experience the exchange of energy in the forms of seeing, hearing, feeling, sensing, intuiting or direct knowing.

Illness in the system is caused by an imbalance of energy or a blocking of the flow of energy. In other words, a lack of flow in the human energy system eventually leads to disease. It also distorts our perceptions and dampens our feelings and therefore interferes with a happy experience of living a joyful life.

So what causes an imbalance or block in the flow of energy? The majority of people today have been conditioned to react to unpleasant experiences by blocking their feelings and emotions which stops a great deal of their natural energy flow.
Whenever a person blocks whatever experiences he/she is having, he/she in turn blocks the corresponding chakra/s, which blocks the flow of universal life force energy. Disrupted, weakened, blocked or imbalanced chakras can be caused by many situations occurring in our lives, such as: emotional or physical trauma, injury, negative self-talk, toxicity, nutritional depletion, destructive lifestyle and relationships, neglect of self and lack of love for oneself or others, from emotions that are not expressed in a healthy way, childhood traumas,limited belief system, bad habits all contribute to blockage.
Difficulties abound in life, for each one of us, we develop a coping strategy. If these difficulties persist, these coping strategies become chronic patterns, anchored in the body and psyche as defence structures.

Energy healing is excellent for healing any physical, mental, emotional and spiritual issues, because it helps break down these blockages, allowing the natural flow of healing energy to occur.
