What is Reiki?

Reiki is “Spiritual Life-Force Energy”

Reiki, pronounced as “Ray Key”, is an ancient energy healing practice from Japan that’s over 2500 years old. Our modern day practice, however, was created in 1922 by Mikao Usai. Derived from 2 Japanese words, “Rei” meaning “spirit”, and “ki” for “life-force energy”, Reiki uses hands-on-healing of our spiritual energy. At Boho Energy, Erica Bowman is an Energy Healer attuned with Usui Reiki Levels 1 & 2.

Since all things are infused with energy, Usai realized that the practice of Reiki brought about enlightenment in his students. After all, when you connect yourself to the universal life energy, you allow its flow throughout your body. This influx of energy balances our energetic field and heals each of us on many levels.

Much like yoga, meditation, massage, or acupuncture, Reiki therapy eases the body, mind, and soul. In particular, it helps individuals let go of “stuck” energy from areas in the body while increasing circulation & oxygenation. On a cellular level, the body is navigating the imbalances and Reiki is flowing through to connect and restore. Remember, your body knows how to heal itself, when given the necessary tools and time for alignment.

Reiki For Emotional, Spiritual Well Being

In fact, Reiki is not only a tool for physical healing, but for emotional and spiritual well being too! When the body receives Reiki, it’s like turning on a light. You can see where your energy lies and where it’s no longer serving you well. In fact, every part of your body can hold unresolved trauma and unexpressed emotions. From nerve cells to muscles to organs, your body holds onto your life experiences in profound ways that can impact your overall health. Actually, your own energy heal you on all levels– physical, mental, and spiritual.

The beauty of Reiki therapy is that it can be done anywhere, anytime. It works through simple, gentle techniques where you relax and simply “be”. During a typical Reiki session, you only need to be aware of your state of presence and focus on your breath. Through a relaxed state, you can allow yourself the permission to release, let go, and restore what your mind, body, and soul need.

Since Reiki is naturally aligning your body’s energies, it’s possible you might experience an emotional reaction during a session. This is due to the release of stuck and repressed emotions from within your body tissues. It’s completely normal–and acceptable–to cry, laugh, or feel anger. In fact, it means your energies are shifting and you are healing!

Reiki Helps You Let Go And Become Whole

Simply put, being in alignment with your truth and releasing what no longer serves you is the focus of Reiki sessions. Together, we can embrace the shifts and changes that occur during our sessions to assist with your growth based on your intentions. Through Reiki, you will become aware of your energetic field. This awareness will reduce stress, allow relaxation, and improve your quality of life.

Boho Energy creates and holds an open space for individuals to be with themselves and heal. We are here to assist you with the permission to release, let go, and restore what is needed within your body and mind. We allow you to receive your energy, the very force that makes you, well, you! Above all, Boho Energy offers you the space to accept your gift, transform your energy, and grow stronger.
