Reiki and Access Bars®

Reiki, which was first taught as hands-on healing by Mikao Usui in Japan in 1912, is a universal life force accessed by those attuned to its frequency for the purpose of balancing the body’s energy flows. Reiki is a biofield therapy used in hospitals, hospices and in everyday life by thousands to encourage relaxation and to enhance integrated functioning of the body’s healing systems.

When your energy flow is disrupted or distorted by physical/chemical, emotional or spiritual stressors, the organs and tissues of the body become less efficient and eventually their functioning is compromised. It is said that Reiki flows through affected parts of the energy field and charges it with positive energy, supporting and strengthening your body's innate powers of healing. Reiki is effective whether used on its own or in synergy with other healing modalities.

Reiki can help relieve stress, alleviate muscle pain, speed recovery from surgery and chemotherapy, ease anxiety and support the process of giving birth, calm a broken heart, or simply facilitate a drug-free, refreshing good night's rest. Reiki is hands-on healing but can also be transferred remotely or across distance. Universal energy is channeled through the practitioner's hands to the receiver, and Reiki can also be done on oneself.

As Reiki releases blockages on multiple levels, over time, it reinforces the recipient's ability to take responsibility for her life and to help make the necessary changes in attitude and lifestyle to 
promote a happier and healthier life. As one client told me, "Thank you for bringing me back to being myself, again!"

Access Bars® refers to 32 bars of energy that run through your head which store the electromagnetic component of thoughts, ideas, attitudes, beliefs regarding aspects of healing, body, control, awareness, creativity, power, aging, sex and money. The practitioner, in contacting these "bars," supports the clearing of blocked energy in these areas, allowing for change and transformation.
