Reiki was a great entry for Dr. Chris into the realm of energy healing, which eventually led her to becoming a holistic doctor. Reiki is a wonderful way to contribute to another's journey towards health and wholeness. It's the gift that keeps on giving.

Learning reiki transforms your relationship with your body, your mind, your spirit. It causes you to be with your friends and family in a whole new way, if you're ready and willing. See this article to read more about the significance of reiki and self-healing.

Dr. Chris is a White Light Reiki Master and registered Karuna Reiki® Master with the International Center for Reiki Training. If you are interested in experiencing Reiki with Dr. Chris, book a session online.

Preparation for your Reiki Class Attunement
(to begin the week before class -- these points are suggested but not required):

*Eat healthy food (if you eat meat, choose the no-hormone kind) and abstain from or decrease caffeine (including chocolate) and any unnecessary medications. Alcohol consumption should also be avoided. These create imbalances in the nervous and endocrine systems.
*Minimize caffeine on the day of the class.
*If you smoke, cut back a few days before and minimize smoking on the day of the class.
*If you practice meditation regularly, practice meditation days before your class.

What is Reiki?

Reiki harnesses the universal life force that infuses and permeates all living forms. This universal life force is the primary activating energy of life and the underlying creative intelligence of the universe that organizes our world and everything in it. We are alive because life force energy flows around us and through our bodies by means of subtle pathways. 

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!"


Usui Reiki Ryoho Principles

The secret art of inviting happiness –

The miraculous medicine of all diseases…

Just for today, do not anger.

Do not worry and be filled with gratitude. 

Devote yourself to your work. Be kind to people.

Every morning and evening, join your hands in prayer.

Pray these words to your heart and chant these words with your mouth.
