Energy work is the act of channeling and manipulating the energy that courses through your body in order to heal it. Energy practitioners remove blocks in your body’s energetic field that can cause poor health.
According to esoteric healing practitioners, “energy follows thought”, and negative, disharmonious thoughts or emotions can lead to disease. During an esoteric healing session, the practitioner attempts to detect, assess, and treat the area of disharmony in the patient, and stimulate energy fields that underlie and support the physical body. Patients remain fully clothed during treatment. A session includes silent, off-the-body energy work and the sharing of information.
Reiki (pronounced ray-kee) is Japanese for “Universal Life Energy.” Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing system in which the trained Reiki practitioner uses the Usui systems of Reiki to balance the Universal Life Energy within an individual.
During Reiki, the client remains clothed, while the practitioner lays his or her hands on the surface of the body in an orderly sequence, with special attention paid to particular areas of discomfort and imbalance. This allows the practitioner's life force to be transferred to the client’s problem areas. Reiki facilitates the client’s own healing.
