Reiki, Chakra Balancing

Rossana (Sana) Ruffing, LMT

Reiki:  a type of alternative healing therapy called energy healing that is a Japanese technique  that can promote healing.  The word has two meanings: Rei means God’s wisdom or Higher Power and Ki that is the Life Force energy. It is this spiritually guided life force energy that flows through us and causes us to be alive. The technique used is palm healing or hands-on healing through which a “universal energy” is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. Other benefits may be that it:

  • Helps with stress reduction and relaxation
  • Cleanses the body and increases spiritual understanding of yourself and the world around you
  • Pushes away pain, anxiety and negative emotions
  • Brings balance to your life, heals your Chakras and fills you with contentment and a sense of deep understanding

Chakra Balancing: depicted as energy centers along the spine. In Sanskrit Chakra means “spinning wheel”. They are found along the major divisions of the human nervous system, beginning at the base of the spine and traveling up toward the top of the head. Each of the seven major Chakras in your body is believed to influence or control the organ functions near its area along the spine. When balancing Chakras, one must read the body and pick up on any stress or tensions which may become physical illnesses.  Balancing the Chakras helps:

  • Charge and clear the Aura (the distinctive atmosphere or quality that seems to surround and be generated by a person, thing, or place)
  • Detox the body by channeling energy into the liver and kidneys
  • Raises the energy level after chemotherapy
  • Brings the Chakras into their natural and harmonic state
  • Relaxes and heals both the mind and body

 Both Reiki and Chakra Balancing are done over clothing.
