Often, our busy schedules and life experiences can throw us off balance, affecting different areas of the body and different areas of our lives. Stress, suppressed emotions, and trauma can cause a lack of balance. This imbalance can manifest throughout the physical body and cause ailments, disease, and symptoms of physical and emotional pain. Cynthia focuses on balancing the main seven energy centers in the body, known as the chakras, through Reiki (energy) healing.
Cynthia has worked with many different people with a wide range of needs, including cancer, anxiety, depression, back pain, and more.
What is Reiki?
Originating in Japan in the 1800's, Reiki healing was originally practiced by Mikao Usui.
The energy of Reiki is called Universal Life Force Energy. It stands for the non-physical energy, which creates and maintains a balanced and healthy body, spirit and world. When this energy is blocked, there is an imbalance that often creates disease.
What are the Chakras?
"The Sanskrit word Chakra literally translates to wheel or disk. In yoga, meditation, and Ayurveda, this term refers to wheels of energy throughout the body. There are seven main chakras, which align the spine, starting from the base of the spine through to the crown of the head.
These swirling wheels of energy correspond to massive nerve centers in the body. Each of the seven main chakras contains bundles of nerves and major organs as well as our psychological, emotional, and spiritual states of being. Since everything is moving, it’s essential that our seven main chakras stay open, aligned, and fluid. If there is a blockage, energy cannot flow. Think of something as simple as your bathtub drain. If you allow too much hair to go into the drain, the bathtub will back up with water, stagnate and eventually bacteria and mold will grow. So is too with our bodies and the chakras. A bathtub is simple; it’s physical so the fix is easy."

What to expect during a Reiki session
Reiki is received at the top of your head where the seventh chakra (energy center) is located. It flows through your chakras, or energy system (through the third eye, throat, heart, solar plexus, pelvis, and base of spine). During a session, hands are placed on each of the seven chakras to promote balance and healing by engaging the energy centers.
