Balance Your Energy

Chakra Balancing is a form of energy healing that focuses on channeling energy

into the seven chakras

What is Chakra Balancing?

In Yogic tradition, the human body has seven energy centers called chakras. When these energy centers are healthy and open, so are we–physically, emotionally, mentally and in our relationships with ourselves and others. But when they are blocked through injury, illness, or disconnection from others, we are blocked from being our best selves and can feel frustrated, stuck and lack of vitality.

Throughout childhood and through our life experiences, we often create constrictions in our chakras. For instance, if we repeatedly received criticism for being loud or noisy or too opinionated, we might close down our fifth chakra (throat center), limiting our creative expression or ability to speak up for ourselves.

Traumas, fears and ‘negative’ experiences can lead to long-term imbalances in your energy system that then manifest into challenges like insecurity, anger, stress or disease.

Often we try to understand ourselves better through psychology, which is great, but sometimes we are missing a vital component – our energetic system. It’s also important to address our underlying energy system, which affects how we live, breathe and express ourselves.

This is where energy healing comes in. It supports the energetic system in cleansing  the constrictions in your system which may be having an effect in your life force in dozens of ways.


How do I know if I need chakra balancing?

What to expect during Chakra Balancing

Upon arrival, usually you have a short chat with Karri to tell her what's going on in your life and if there's anything specific you'd like to focus on.  You do not have to discuss anything you don't wish to and you don't have to have a problem or specific focus area either.  If all you need is deep relaxation and someone to hold loving space for you, this session will satisfy that need as well.  

Reiki is usually performed on a client who is fully reclined comfortably on a massage table. It also may be performed  semi-reclined on a massage chair or recliner. If you have mobility or pain issues please communicate these to Karri prior to your appointment so accommodations can be made to insure your are most comfortable for the session.

All sessions are completed fully clothed.

It is completely up to you whether or not you want to be touched.  Reiki can be done with a light touch on the body or can be done a few inches above the body, meaning that the practitioner does not need to touch you at all.  Please communicate your preference to Karri.  

Karri often uses aromatherapy and crystals during the session.  If you are scent sensitive, please communicate this to Karri prior to your session.  

Our bodies are in constant flux between balance and imbalance. Balance is not static, it is constantly moving.


Awareness is the starting point as once you bring awareness to your body/mind, you can start to learn its signals and clues. You begin to listen to your body on all levels as your guide.

When we are feeling good, relaxed and happy in the world then our enery is flowing, we feel like we are in the flow. However if we’re feeling depressed, anxious, stressed, etc then our energy will be depleted and our level of vitality may be affected also. Over time this will affect a person’s well being and this is where Reiki or other forms of Shamanic Healing would be very beneficial.

Instead of choosing to enjoy each day and being grateful for what we have, we worry about the past and the future and let the present pass us by. All this worry and stress in our daily lives affects our energy centers and they become blocked i.e. the energy does not flow freely through the chakras.

A ‘block’ is a place where energy is trapped or constricted. In dealing with a block, you need to get the energy moving which is what Reiki does. When energy flows through the whole body it creates harmony and releases imbalances. Reiki assists to bring the chakras into alignment and balance.

No chakra works independently of the other chakras, they are all part of the whole energy system. Each chakra only works fully when the other chakras are also fully engaged. They are all part of a whole.

Each chakra has a role in balancing some aspect of our life physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually. Many things can affect our chakras from our physical environment to our emotions to our mental dialogue. It’s essential for good health, to be aware of how balanced or unbalanced our chakras are.
