Reiki is a Japanese healing technique that uses the “laying on of hands” to facilitate a deep state of relaxation in the body, as well as on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level. Rei- translates to “universal” or “higher power,” while ki- is “life-force energy.” Energy exists within all things, as Nobel Prize winner Albert Einstein proved to be a scientific fact; it can be transferred from one party to the next, but not created nor destroyed. Einstein specifically stated, “Everything is energy, and that is all there is to it. Match the frequency of the reality you want and you can not help but get that reality. It can be no other way. This is not philosophy. This is physics.”
Living beings, such as humans, animals, and plants all carry life-force energy within them that carries a vibrational frequency. However this energy does fluctuate, especially when we are facing challenges in our lives. Energy consists of several levels of vibrations, and when we are feeling stressed, fatigued, and sluggish this brings our personal vibration to a lower frequency. These symptoms have the ability to cause significant drain on the human body and put one at risk for further potential health issues. Yet on the contrary, when we are experiencing feelings of joy, awareness, love, and gratitude we are operating on a higher vibration, raising our own frequency of life-force energy. Reiki energy radiates with warmth, compassion, and unconditional love that is so powerful that it affects every aspect of our being and can never do any harm. The energy is highly intuitive and intellectual, knowing exactly what the recipient needs. This is why no two sessions are ever experienced quite the same. Each time you receive a Reiki treatment the energy is going to focus on the precise needs of the client to promote overall well being.
As the Reiki Master-Practitioner, Renee Masse channels this energy and transmits it through the palms of her hands to the client. As the client lays comfortably, Renee uses light touches and transfers the Reiki energy to client along the chakra system, which are the seven primary energy vortices in the body. Starting at the base of your spine is the root chakra that governs our ability to feel secure and stable. Below the naval is the sacral chakra, which connects to our emotions, creativity, and sexuality. Below the diaphragm is the solar plexus that is the center of our being and ability to demonstrate confidence and will. At the center of the chest is the heart chakra that connects us with compassion and unconditional love. At the base of the throat is the throat chakra, which is based on our ability to effectively communicate and speak our personal truth. Slightly above the eyes is the third-eye chakra that provides deep intuition and seeks truth. Finally at the top center of the head is the crown chakra, which connects us to universal wisdom and divine energy. Each chakra has domain over different areas of physicality, as well as emotional states. Using this knowledge and training, Renee has the ability to detect various imbalances within the body’s system, apply Reiki healing energy to them, and promote a more serene state of being so the recipient may heal on a deeper level. As we bring healing energy to our mental/emotional state, this also correlates to a healing effect on the body. The more Reiki treatments an individual receives, the more influence this energy will have on various aspects in one’s life. However, even one treatment will leave you with a deeper sense of serenity, while connecting on a deeper level to your higher self.
