JIKIDEN REIKI is a traditional healing technique that was developed in Japan and widely practiced before modernization. It is a pure, simple yet an effective physical treatment that promotes healing by re-establishing the a flow of ki (or energy) throughout the system which in turn enhances the bodyʼs innate healing abilities. Jikiden Reiki addresses physical, mental, and emotional conditions such as headaches, pain, digestive disorders, anxiety and depression to name a few. It doesn't just treat the symptoms but goes to the root of the problem. Reiki is gentle and safe and is complimentary to other medical treatments and therapies.

Reiki is a popular and beneficial healing modality that is utilized for health and wellness. It is based on energetic principles and is practiced in many hospitals, medical settings, and in private practice all around the world.

Reiki is a pleasant and effective tool to aid with stress reduction and relaxation. When the body and mind are relaxed, the body can work to repair and heal, and the mind may function with more clarity.  Reiki may assist the body in creating an environment which facilities healing.  Reiki is a great tool to use as a complement to traditional medicine.  Many people utilize Reiki as part of their wellness plan.

"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
 you touch everything.

- Lao Tzu 

Welcome to Crown to Root! You are not here today by accident, there are no coincidences and today you are hear by Divine purpose! I have much gratitude that you have arrived to my lil' space on the vast web; my goal is to share with you my journey, and perhaps walk aside you in yours.  We all have innate abilities to heal ourselves and others, my healing journey was through Reiki, and my life has been forever changed!  


Cindy Griffin, is a Jikiden Shihan-kaku, and Usui Holy Fire III Master, Spiritual Coach, Teacher, a Member of the Jikiden Reiki Association, Certified Professional Member of the International Center of Reiki Training (ICRT), and a Universal Life Church Minister.  Always being a seeker, Cindy began her search for alternative knowledge and healing many years ago. As a child her experiences brought her into a world that she later needed to understand fully. While on this journey of self-discovery, exploring many traditions and modalities, she eventually found Reiki. 

Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that  promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" (called ki, chi, or prana) flows through us and is what causes us to be alive.  “Rei” translates from Japanese into “Cosmic, Rain, Spirit or Universal”.  Therefore, REIKI, means "the cosmic rain of Universal Life-force Energy".  (pronounced "RAY_KEY")

Her first teacher, Tianne Lastra; the only ICRT Licensed teacher of Usui Holy Fire III Reiki located in the state of Louisiana, opened the world of Reiki to her.  Cindy knew that all things happened as they should, and not quite one year later she was introduced to her second sensei who changed her trajectory! Frank Arjava Petter, international best seller author of "Reiki Fire", "Reiki, the Legacy of Dr. Usui", "The Original Reiki Handbook of Dr. Mikao Usui", co-author of "The Spirit of Reiki", "Reiki Best Practices", "The Hayashi Reiki- Manual","Reiki ganz Klar", "This is Reiki" and "One with Reiki", and Vice-Representative of the Jikiden Reiki Institute in Kyoto Japan, introduced Jikiden Reiki to her, and the rest is history.  Cindy’s teachers both had this humble presence that made such a positive impact on her that she knew she was following her own soul-path.  Since then Cindy has continued to study and dedicate her time to learning and practicing the art of the Reiki discipline and its various styles and both Eastern and Western styles of Reiki.  She discovered her passion, to guide healing and help others find more calm in this world of stress and over-stimulation.  She also offers spiritual coaching and meditation gatherings to help others find their center. 


It is her hope to open the path towards the Japanese modality of Jikiden Reiki so that others may begin to heal themselves, their families and their community by contributing to the higher vibrating collective consciousness.   She believes in time, Reiki will become a common household word, and as Usui sensei stated, “Reiki will change the world”. 

Integrating Reiki into her life, Cindy strives to live by the Gokai, the 5 principals set in place by Usui sensei during the time and legacy of the Meiji Emperor, and to deeply embed them into her heart.
