Positioned along the spinal column, the major chakras form the essence of the network through which the mind, body and spirit act as one holistic system. This network includes many smaller energy centers throughout the body as well.
The hand placements during Reiki healing targets the seven major chakras and important secondary chakras, which can become blocked or closed. Keeping these gateways properly functioning is significantly important to our health, because disruptions in energy flow can lead to illness.
The ancient understanding of the chakras has proven to be a valuable addition to the practice of Reiki around the world. Reiki treatments clear the chakras of negative energy and blockages, restoring the harmonious flow of life-force energy.
