Open Practice, Outreach:

As often as requested, or required after taking a class, we hold an Open Practice where any may attend:  those who wish to hone and practice their skills learned at CRC, others who contact ReikiMummaSylvia who have trained elsewhere but who wish to join us. Reiki Practitioners who have not trained at CRC will be required to present their Reiki Level Certificate and will be asked to pay $20.  Those who have never experienced Reiki and wish to do so may join us by registering via email.      Please contact us at      to discuss registration and payment requirements.

What is a Reiki session / treatment?                                                                        (Sylvia Melba Christie McGee – CRC Reiki Master, Teacher, Director)

Simply put, the Reiki Practitioner receives the request from the client, then imagediscusses what part the receiver has in the healing. Then the Reiki Practitioner channels Reiki energy to each of the chakras, to each of the joints, to balancing chakras and then smoothing the aura, to facilitate the work of the client in permitting themselves to allow the Reiki to heal where healing is needed.

A Reiki session takes about 45 minutes.   Sometimes, more than one session is required for healing to be completed.   And always, the client receiving the Reiki must accept the Reiki energy, and release the energies that no longer serve them.

To sign up for a Reiki Session / Treatment, contact Sylvia at to arrange details of time, place and cost.                                       

How does Reiki Heal? (from William Lee Rand)

We are alive because life energy or Ki is flowing through us.  Ki flows within the physical body through pathways called chakras, meridians, and nadis and can also be present and pass directly through the organs and tissues of the body.  It also flows around us in a field of energy called the aura.   The free and balanced flow of healthy Ki is the cause of well-being.  It is Ki that animates the physical organs and tissues as it flows through them.  Ki nourishes the organs and cells of the body, supporting them in their vital functions.  When the flow of healthy Ki is disrupted, it causes diminished functioning within one or more of the organs and tissues of the physical body.  Therefore, it is the disruption in the flow of healthy Ki that is the main cause of illness.

Ki is responsive to thoughts and feelings.  When we have positive optimistic thoughts, we increase our flow of Ki and this causes us to feel better.  However, when we have negative thoughts, our Ki is disrupted and diminished and we do not feel as good.  When negative thoughts become lodged in the subconscious mind, they create a permanent disruption in the flow of healthy Ki.  This happens when we either consciously or unconsciously accept negative thoughts or feelings about ourselves.  These negative thoughts and feeling influence Ki and cause it to become Boykin or unhealthy Ki.  The book I then attaches itself to the organs and tissues of the body and also disrupts the flow of healthy Ki.  The organs and tissues of the body can be affected depending on the location of the blockage.  This diminishes the vital function of those organs and cells of the physical body annd unless the blockage is released, a person could eventually become ill.  Hands

When a person receives a Reiki session, the Rei or spiritually conscious part of the energy assesses where the person has byoki and then directs the healing energy, usually to the byoki that is nearest the hands.  However, sometimes it will go to the byoki that is most in need of healing even if it is far from the hands.  The Reiki energy then works with the negative thoughts and feelings that have created the byoki and are blocking one’s flow of healthy Ki and replaces them with healthy thoughts and feelings thus releasing the byoki.  This can happen in a number of ways.  By flowing through the affected parts of the energy field and charging them with positive energy, Reiki raises the vibratory level in and around the physical body where the negative thoughts and feelings are attached.  This causes the negative energy to break apart and fall away.  In so doing, Reiki clears, straightens, and heals the energy pathways, thus allowing healthy Ki to flow in a natural way.  Sometimes the entire field of blocking energy is lifted up to a higher level of consciousness where it is processed.  Other times, it is melted away or burned up.  When a block is released, sometimes a person will feel a cold sensation and when it is melted or burned up, a hot sensation.  Once healthy Ki is flowing naturally, the physical organs and tissues are able to complete their healing process.
