Health benefits

One of the main benefits of Reiki  is reducing stress, Reiki gives your body a break

from the stresses of daily life, helping your body return to a state of relaxation. Once

in this state, your body is able to heal any damage brought on by stress, injury, or

disease: By helping a person experience deep relaxation, Reiki enhances and

accelerates our own natural healing process, because the body can stop being

stressed and focus on healing itself.

When you experience stress, your sympathetic nervous system reacts, increasing

heart rate and blood pressure and the fight-or-flight response that gets the body

the corresponding crystal colour placed on the Chakra itself.



Literally speaking, the word “chakra” from Sanskrit translates to “wheel” or “disk,” but

references to a spiritual energy centre within the human body, of which there are

seven along the spine, and through the neck and the crown of your head. ,

Each physical body part has a corresponding astral body part. The astral body cannot

be seen or touched. This is also a reason why we cannot see the chakras.
