Reiki: a practice from Japan that works on the energetic body

It involves hands on touch to balance Ki or life force energy, to strengthen the body’s ability to heal on all levels.

Balancing The Energetic Body


Did you know that Reiki is recognized as a complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), by the National Institute of Health (NIH) under the National Cancer Institute (NCI)? A CAM therapy by definition is used alongside of conventional medicine and not in place of it, thereby enhancing and supporting medical treatments.

Japanese healing practice developed by Dr. Mikao Usui (1865-1926). Reiki’s roots trace back 2500 years. Reiki is not a religion, but does have a spiritual foundation in supporting one to achieve harmony and balance for their highest good.
Reiki is all loving, all knowing, and does no harm. Involves hands on touch, Ki or life force energy, to strengthen the body’s ability to heal on all levels physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. Reiki elicits the relaxation response of the body, creating a cascade of peacefulness and calmness.


How is Reiki Performed?


During a Reiki session you lay comfortably on a massage table fully clothed, listening to tranquil music as the Reiki practitioner places their hands in a sequence of hand positions from the crown of your head to the soles of your feet.

Alexandra Boggio

alexAlexandra is the Director of the Reiki Department –  Certified Usui Reiki Master / Master Teacher, Certified RYT 500 ERYT 200 Yoga Instructor, CNC – Certified Nutritional Consultant and IFHI- Fellow of the Institute for Human Individuality, Energy Healer & Meditation Instructor.   She facilities the Reiki Training classes, intern mentorships and ongoing Reiki Healing Group.

Alexandra believes that our Western society places a great emphasis towards treating illness and disease by means of pharmacology. “Where there are amazing lifesaving drugs, often we focus on the symptoms and not the root cause.  This also often leaves out one important aspect of the human body – its amazing ability to heal itself when given the right conditions. This is where energy and Reiki comes in and can be a fantastic complimentary healing modality.” Through the means of Reiki, one gains a greater awareness and sense of empowerment towards healing.

Alexandra’s focus is on self-healing and on using Reiki to maintain balance in one’s life.  Alexandra believes that each person can take responsibility for his or her own healing process and wellness. Her job is to help increase awareness of the subtle body, assist, guide, and provide tools to aid each person’s unique healing journey. 

In addition, Alexandra also works with clients one-on-one.  During a private Healing Session, Alexandra helps the client to identify where the root of the issue lies energetically and helps to develop a sustainable wellness plan.   She works with releasing the blocked and traumatic energy of events from this life, past lives.  Each session includes balancing physical and emotional aspects of the body, chakras (subtle energy centers of the body), clearing  aura (also known as one’s energetic boundaries) and if necessary, removal of energetic attachments.

Carla Henson

Carla was first introduced to Reiki in 2011 while studying the energetic body as a Yoga instructor.  She found great interest in the way we can heal energetically through this ancient Japanese modality.  After her first session with a Reiki Master, she knew that this was the path for her.  Carla became certified in Reiki Level 1 in 2013 where she began to practice this energetic healing on herself. She has personally experienced ways it has helped her heal things from anxiety to aches and pains. She later became certified in Reiki level 2 in 2015 and she now enjoys incorporating it in her Yoga classes, as well as offering hands on healing for Cancer Care classes and Sound Healing workshops. It’s her intention to create a safe and relaxing environment for her students as they experience all that Reiki has to offer.  As an energetic healer, Carla works with the Chakra system as a way to aid in releasing energetic blockages, which can be holding us back from our full potential. Carla is also available for distant Reiki healing.

Reiki recipients often experience feelings of peace, calm and happiness after treatment, and sometimes have more energy than before. It’s a beautiful way for you to connect with all the friends and family across the world, who can’t physically be with you. And it allows those friends and family members to also feel the connection, creating healing for everyone. Reiki Circles can allow us to join our energies with people across the country and even the world. Collective consciousness is powerful, and when multiple people direct their energies toward one focus or goal, the results can be astounding.
