Reiki is a form of energy work used to promote healing of physical, mental, and emotional dis-ease. Reiki means, "universal life force," and as a reiki practitioner, my own energy has been attuned to channel the universal life force. This is something we all have access to. As energetic beings, we are designed to move energy and allow it to flow through and around us. Our energetic bodies are made up of the aura (energy fields, take energy in), chakras (energy centers, breaks down the energy), and meridians (energy pathways, distributes energy throughout the body). Trauma and stuck emotions and this can cause "energetic blockages" in our systems.
