Understanding Energy Work

By Charon Collier, CMT

Everything in the Universe is energy. We are energy and we are surrounded by energy everyday. Our life energy is variously referred to as Qi (pronounced “chee”), Prana, Vital Force, Life Force and many more. When disease or illness are present in the body, it is understood as a disruption or distortion, blockage, and imbalance in the energy body.The body seeks to maintain balance. Energy work helps to promote and restore a healthy balance of the energy body. Energy work supports the body’s natural capacity to heal itself by clearing blockages, and imbalances in the energy body.


Reiki is a form of energy work

The Reiki Practitioner is a conduit for channeling energy to the recipient by means of a series of holds (hand positions) on or above the head, chest, abdomen, and back to promote self- healing and energy movement.
