"Chi" (aka "qi") means life force energy in Chinese. Elemental Chi, formerly known as Elemental Reiki, started off primarily as a Reiki website. Reiki is a form of energy healing - with a primary focus on hands-on healing - that was founded by a Buddhist monk (Mikao Usui) in Japan in the late 1800s. Over the years, Reiki became very popular online. Many Reiki "attunements" (energetic healing transmissions) passed around the Internet come directly from this website.
I started doing Reiki at age 29. I am now in my mid-40s. As I've grown and matured, I've realized there is a vast world of knowledge out there that I missed when I originally studied Reiki. Reiki, at its best, is a gentle and soothing form of therapeutic touch. At its worst, it is a catch-all name for any and all energetic "systems" that may or may not actually be related to real healing - I admit I have been guilty of a little bit of this! For this reason, Reiki has even gotten a bad reputation among some healers. (Never mind the folks who think it is downright demonic!)
Some of these criticisms and concerns are valid, but I am not the type of person to throw the baby out with the bathwater. For example, if you are "amplifying" your Reiki energy with a "spirit guide" that is actually a negative entity (aka demon) in disguise, then yes, Reiki can be "demonic." But if you are working with Archangel Michael or Jesus when doing your Reiki healing, there is nothing demonic about it.
All that said, Reiki has helped me a lot but its major drawback is that real Reiki is often too gentle to deal with really deep issues effectively sometimes. It also left me ungrounded when I was running too much energy at times and wasn't dealing with the physical blockages in my body. Don't get me wrong, Reiki can be a wonderful tool - but it's not a magic bullet.
I've studied yoga, hypnosis, EFT, Christian faith healing, and many other forms of healing. One of the best systems of healing I have found is Qigong (Chi Kung in the UK) - which is an ancient form of energy work from China. This website is now being expanded beyond its original focus on Reiki to include information about "chi healing" in general, with a growing emphasis on Qigong and related forms of heailng, many of which are based in Traditional Chinese Medicine.
