What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient Japanese healing modality, and is holistic, because it works on the body, mind and spirit. Rei means "Universal” and Ki refers to the "Life Force Energy". This"Universal Life Force Energy" is the energy of pure, unconditional love, eminating from the Source of all things, and is all around us, all the time.

Reiki is a deeply spiritual practice, as such, the spiritual principle of ‘oneness’, that everything is connected, is fundamental to how it works.

One of the best illustrations explaining this principle is the one of the waves on the ocean. In the illustration the ocean represents the ‘all that is’. You may think of this as Source, the Universe or even God. The waves on the ocean represent us as individuals. Each wave, is born, reaches a crescendo, and then melts back into the ocean, this parallels our lifetime. The importance of this illustration is that we are all one with everything. Each life comes from Source, it lives, experiences life, and then returns to Source. But all the while it remains connected to Source, and through Source it is connected to everything else.

This primordial life force energy is called by many names in different cultures: AUM (OM), Prana, Chi, Qi, Ki, Spirit, or Zero point energy. (as in Quantum Physics)

A Reiki practitioner works directly with this universal energy, channeling it into the body . They act as the "conduit" by pulling it through their Crown Chakra, filling their body, and allowing it to flow out through their hands and Heart Chakra. The Reiki automatically flows to wherever it is needed most by the receiver, filling them and stimulating their body's natural healing abilities, bringing them back into balance and revitalizing their entire being.

What's so great about Crystals?

Because crystal energy is extremely precise and stable, crystals are used for many things in today’s world. You may not realize it, but you probably use crystals daily. Here are some examples: watches, radio, tv, radar, computer chips, phones, solar panels, lasers etc.

Crystals hold and amplify energies, as such they are capable of transmitting and amplifying or magnifying other forms of energy.

All matter vibrates at a specific vibrational frequency.

This vibration is called a Dominant Oscillatory Rate or DOR. As humans we are made up of trillions of DORs as each cell in our body vibrates at its own DOR. Crystals on the other hand only have one DOR.

The molecules in a crystal are arranged in a fixed repeating pattern. Unlike humans, this structure makes crystal energy highly stable allowing them to easily maintain their DOR. When we bring crystals into our energy field the process of entrainment begins. Entrainment (or Resonance) is when the rhythm of a more stable energy causes another to gradually synchronize with it. This is the Universe’s way of bringing energies into balance.


What are Chakras?

Chakra means "spinning wheel" or "vortex"of energy. There are 7 main centers of energy within the body. They start from the base of your spine, to the top of your head, and you can remember them by ROYGBIV, or the colors of the rainbow.

Each Chakra feeds life force energy to a certain region of the body, and the organs associated with that area.

While sound is an acoustical wave, color is an electromagnetic wave. The colors of the rainbow correspond to a specific musical note, in the same way that each chakra of the body correlates with a specific tone and color.


  • Crown = violet

  • Third Eye = indigo

  • Throat = blue

  • Heart = green

  • Solar Plexus = yellow

  • Sacral = orange

  • Root = red


If there is a blockage to the flow of energy in a chakra, it can lead to the organs and systems linked to that chakra becoming out of balance or dysfunctional, leading to a plethora of illness and dis-ease.


What is a Tuning Fork?

Tuning forks were first used to tune instruments to the correct tone, but their healing effects on the body weren't realized until much later. They can be attuned to the original harmonic frequency of the Chakras as well as Solfeggio pure tones, which positively affect all the Chakras, and can be applied directly on the body, or used in the energetic field /aura of the body. They attune the body’s vibrations on a cellular level and promote the activation of Qi/life force energy so it can flow freely without any blockages. It balances the nervous system by aligning the right and left brain, thus improving cognition and clear thinking.

The Tuning Forks produce a vibration that the body naturally aligns to, thus triggering the healing process.

How Does Sound Healing Work?

Vibrational sound healing can be traced back from present day trends to many ancient civilizations including India, Africa, Europe, and the Orient. In Ancient Egypt vowel sounds were chanted in specific keys to clear and restore balance to the body. Ancient religions and modern sciences agree that our Reality is an ocean of living energy, and that all matter (such as a human being) is simply interpenetrating waves of energy which have crystallized into form and structure.

Sound healing is a form of vibrational medicine that can be used to repair and harmonize the Body, Mind and Spirit. It is composed of waves that travel through the air at different frequencies. Each one corresponds to a musical note or pitch, just like on a piano. Resonance happens when one vibration is met with another vibration,they synchronize their behavior and attune themselves to the stronger, more powerful vibration.


The body is a network of vibrational fields and energy currents. Each individual resonates at his or her own vibration, and each part of our bodies has an energetic field, which includes our organs.

Disease starts in the subtle energetic bodies: Mental, Emotional and Spiritual fields before it manifests into physical form. If your body is not in harmony, it will vibrate at a lower, more dense rate.

Applying harmonic frequencies that resonate with each part of the body's original, balanced, harmonious state causes your cells to vibrate harmoniously again, allowing you to return to normal functioning. There are many different tools or instruments for sound healing, including Singing Bowls, Tuning forks, drums, Didgeridoo, chimes, etc.

Although there is a tone and color that corresponds to each of the chakra centers, each part affects the totality. This is important to know since each tool used will affect the whole body. You may feel the effects in one section of your body more deeply, but the vibrational sound will also travel throughout your entire energy field.

Notes of Singing Bowls are tuned to specific harmonic frequencies found within the human body. Singing Bowls help to balance the chakra system and re-energize the auric field. Healing is thus made possible on all levels. Each individual is unique as to which energy center(s) require balancing. You may find yourself drawn to different tones each time you experience them.

Crystal Salt

Vibrational sound touches our bodies on a molecular and crystalline level. Sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies

Hearing is not a prerequisite for benefiting from these healing properties. When the sound moves through the atmosphere and touches us, it causes our cells to move at a different speed, in rhythm with the sound wave. This puts us in harmony with the sound wave. The sound penetrates into our very cells and rebalances them through oscillation and resonance.

Studies have shown that sound has a direct impact on the mental processes, muscles, nervous system, (heartbeat, pulse) digestive system and circulatory system.

On the molecular level, every cell in our body is formed from a geometric crystalline structure, containing silica (building block of Quartz), which balances our electro-magnetic functions. For this reason, sound baths with Crystal Singing Bowls are one of the most dynamic forms of sound healing found today.

Frequencies & Brain Entrainment

Frequencies have a direct effect on your brain, heartbeat and cells. You literally can change the way you think and behavioral patterns and conditioning through brain entrainment.

Binaural beats train your brain to vibrate at a different frequency, and how we think has a direct effect on how we live our lives. It is actually and auditory hallucination, because two different frequencies are played, one in each ear, and your brain makes up a third one that is the difference between the two. When you listen to binaural beats you can trigger Alpha and Theta waves which can induce a meditative, relaxed state.

They can be used for:

Release of dopamine, better cognition, relaxation, improvement in sleep, improved mood and behavior, access deeper states of consciousness, activate endorphin pathways, blocking pain signals etc.


Positive Affirmations reinforce a set narrative for your mind, ultimately re programming it. Sort of like the idea of "fake it til you make it", even if you don't currently feel like what you are affirming, with repetition, you can re-train your brain to think more positively and more in alignment with whatever it is you want to make possible in your life. For example: repeating "I am confident and brave" will, with repetition, make you feel more confident and brave to take control of your situation/life direction.


In a world where we are continuously bombarded with lower vibrating frequencies, whether through music, television, stress from work, outside influences etc., ultimately, entrainment allows you to take control over your own mind and program it the way you want.

Common responces & what to expect

It is important that you avoid alcohol, nicotine/tobacco and excess sugar, as these substances inhibit your body's ability to detox and heal. And remember to drink plenty of water and get plenty of rest, so your body can process all the bad out and the new good energies can be fully integrated.

Everyone is different and vibrating at a different frequency, so the energy will be experienced differently. Effects can start immediately and last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. Common effects you may experience are:

want to sleep more, thirsty, more energized, release of built up emotions as crying or laughing, better digestion, ability & motivation to break old habits and start new better ones, memory recall, visualizations or colors, sudden shifts in consciousness, intense/vivid dreams, headaches, tingles, pins & needles, muscle twitching, floating sensation, feeling of agitation, sensation of cold or hot, flu-like symptoms in days following (this means you are detoxing) thoughts that seem to come out of nowhere, slowing of breath, heart rate or blood pressure, etc.
