Reiki: Energy Medicine
Reiki is a Japanese word which means “universal life force energy”, and is the energy that exists around us. Reiki is made from two Japanese words. “Rei” means “Higher Power” and “Ki” which means “life force energy”. So together, “Reiki” means “spiritually guided life force energy.”
Reiki promotes stress reduction and relaxation as well as healing. In a Reiki treatment, the practitioner will use “laying on hands” to channel or focus the unseen “life force energy.”
If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.
A Reiki treatment creates a wonderful glowing feeling that radiates around, and flows through you to treat the whole person – body, emotions, mind and spirit. Many beneficial effects of Reiki include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing.
Chakra Balancing is a form of healing which involves the transfer of energy from practitioner to patient to elevate their body’s natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. This energy medicine also helps to balance our chakras.
Chakras are “wheels of light,” located at the central core of our body. There are seven main wheel-like energy centers. The chakras are connected to and are part of the physical body. When our chakras are aligned, we feel harmony within as well as around us. We tend to attract individuals and experiences that are aligned with our personal energy centers.
Qigong (Ch’i Kung)
Qigong (Ch’i Kung) is known as the grandfather of all of the martial arts and is another form of healing the body, mind and spirit.
It is literally the meditation, focused movement and direction of pure energy. Qigong is the source of vibrant life energy and enhanced self-healing.
In my West Los Angeles practice, I can incorporate all of these modalities into the acupuncture treatment.
Dr. Advani is a gentle and loving soul. We have been seeing Dr. Advani for many years for everything from colds, sore joints, stress and even jet lag. Dr. Advani is honest, works intuitively and I am completely confident in all the aspects of healing we receive. The style of acupuncture is so gentle and effective than even our son has been doing it from a young age. We are very grateful to have found Dr Advani. Michelle K.
