Reiki Energy Healing & Chakra Balancing with Vlada

Reiki is a universal, graceful and compassionate energy that can heal on many levels. As it flows through into the recipient's body they will deeply relax, balance and become calm. But Reiki can do much more than this.

All of our energy systems are linked, the mind, body, and soul; each of these systems is connected and can have an effect on each other. It follows then that if a cleansing, healing energy flows through the body, the spiritual body and the mind will also benefit. This is how Reiki works; flowing through the body, cleansing, healing and detoxifying the system on many levels and therefore healing the mind, body, and emotions.
