Energy work (also called energy medicine or energy psychology) is a general term for a collection of mind-body-spirit approaches used to understand and improve human functioning by working with a person's bioenergy (sometimes called qi, chi, prana, or life force) to help reprogram the subconscious mind and clear blockages in the subtle energy field.

Reiki, Reflexology, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Chakra Balancing, and Polarity Therapy are all various forms of energy work that I practice.
Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates the body’s subtle energy systems to remove blocks. By breaking through these energetic blocks, the body’s inherent ability to heal itself is stimulated.
techniques originating from ancient traditions and recent discoveries that are used to manipulate the bioenergy of thepatient with the goal of restoring harmony or removing blockages from within the body.
Energy work typically includes slow, gentle, receptive touch or holds with the intention of creating a space for physical and/or emotional shifts or releases that need to take place to happen in a peaceful and safe environment. The intention is to create a still, open, free space to allow for new possibilities (physical, spiritual, and emotional) to be explored on a conscious, unconscious, or energetic level.
Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. 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.
The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words - Rei which means "God's Wisdom or the Higher Power" and Ki which is "life force energy". So Reiki is actually "spiritually guided life force energy."
A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. Many have reported miraculous results.
Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. It has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery.
An amazingly simple technique to learn, the ability to use Reiki is not taught in the usual sense, but is transferred to the student during a Reiki class. This ability is passed on during an "attunement" given by a Reiki master and allows the student to tap into an unlimited supply of "life force energy" to improve one's health and enhance the quality of life.
Its use is not dependent on one's intellectual capacity or spiritual development and therefore is available to everyone. It has been successfully taught to thousands of people of all ages and backgrounds.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because Reiki comes from God, many people find that using Reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.
