Absolutely everything in existence vibrates on some sort of specific, measurable frequency. Everything, for example, that is electric has a measurable, electrical field around it. As we’ve all seen on TV, medical professionals will use a defibrillator, which charges the heart with electricity to get it started again. We are electrical beings. We have a field, a measurable, electric field through, and around our bodies. That’s not woo-woo. That’s just scientific, verifiable fact.
A Reiki practitioner works with your energy field (referred to in the East as an “aura”), enhancing and supporting your body’s natural process of homeostasis; that of bringing the systems into healthy balance. This process can positively influence physical, emotional, and/or mental issues, and needs.
Reiki serves to calm the fight or flight response in the physical body. When this happens the energy that the body was using to keep all that tension in place is shunted instead to whatever the highest priorities are for healing.
