What is energy? Energy is the basic building block of all matter in the universe. You most likely learned at a young age in school that we are all made up of matter and that matter is made up of individual molecules. These molecules are vibrating at all times, even in inanimate objects such as a chair or a desk. Simply put, all matter is energy.
Therefore, you can say that we as humans are all vibrational beings. We are all emitting and receiving different vibrational frequenices as we interact with other people throughout the day. For example, you may walk into a room and get “good vibes” from someone you have never met. That experience is you picking up on their energy!
Ancient cultures have given energy many different names such as Qi, Prana, Innate Intelligence, Mana, etc. Your energetic body is your essence, your vitality, your life force. It permeates all things and can greatly impact your physical health if not balanced. There are many different healing modalites that can bring your energetic body back into balance such as Acupuncture, EFT, Yoga, and Reiki. In addition, to being a Doctor of Chiropractic and Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner, Dr. Pederson is a now offering Reiki sessions. I chose to offer Reiki because I believe one must work on healing the energetic, emotional, and spiritual body before one can truly heal the physical body.
Reiki is a Japanese form of energy healing that was developed in the 1920’s. Reiki practitioners channel healing energy to aid in balancing the mind, emotions, body, and spirit. Low life force energy can lead to problems and illnesses.
Reiki focuses on assessing the chakras. The chakras are the major energy centers of your body that are located along your spinal column. Each chakra correlates with various nerve plexuses, glands, and organs. The chakras centers which create a connection between your energetic and physical body.
It is a non-invasive energy healing therapy that can be performed hands-on, hands-off, or via distance healing. Reiki practitioners will lightly place their hands on or hover their hands over different areas of the body to promote the flow of healing energy.
Reiki is great for helping people who experience excess stress, anxiety, chronic pain, chronic illnesses, lack of confidence, brain fog, fatigue, and those trying to heal from negative emotions.
