||Frequently Asked Questions
|What is Energy Healing?
||Energy Healing is a way to restore balance
within ourselves and in our bodies. Some people hold too much energy
and tend to over react to situations or get stressed out. Others need
extra energy to support them in their healing process or just in showing
up more in life. Still others hold everything inside and need to relax
and allow more of a release of energy. Healing allows us to drop underneath
our habitual patterns of protection from our lifetime of wounds so
we can experience deeper states of inner peace and connect more with
our lives, others and ourselves.
|Who should consider including
energy healing in a health care program?
||All kinds of physical illness respond in some
way to energy work because our pains and tensions and our illnesses
often result from blocking the energy that in a healthy body is flowing
freely. Eastern culture teaches us that energy comes first and when
it slows down enough it manifests as physical matter. If you change
the energy, you change matter. And, where energy (and therefore blood)
is stagnant (stasis), there will be dysfunction and eventually disease.
When we block our life force by fretting about the future or being
stuck in the past, we not only produce physical problems, we also
diminish or even shut out our capacity to experience the fullness
of life in the moment. This blocking usually leads us to false mental
conclusions, distorted thoughts and emotions that then distort our
experience and understanding of our bodies, ourselves, our relationships,
our professions, etc.. Healing supports the process of coming into
wholeness in every way and learning to give life another chance. The
rewards are many. The more “conscious” we become, the
more vital our lives will be.
|What conditions best respond
to energy work?
||Stress-related illnesses respond well as do
painful and chronic complaints of all kinds. Recovery from cancer
or surgery can be accelerated. Since the body often holds physical
memories that have no mental connection, energy healing often gets
at emotional and psychological issues that can’t be accessed
in traditional talk therapy. When medical or holistic interventions
don’t bring about wellness, energy healing can be a major force
|How does energy work have a
||Physical matter is formed on a matrix of energy
patterns. Without the energy, there is no matter. We know this in
physics but don’t usually think of it in terms of our bodies.
A physical injury changes the energy field. It might create a break
or a leak in the flow of the life force or a block in the energy field.
Conversely, a distortion in the energy will create a physical change.
As we work on repairing the energy field the life force returns to
normal and initiates healing in the physical body.
|What should I expect? What
happens in an appointment?
||A session usually consists of two parts, dialog
and table work. The dialog is where you learn to track your own energy
and consciousness. Much of the work is education and giving you tools,
to work with yourself and engage fully in your own process. You might
present something that is happening in your life, we might track it
and see how much it is related to a familiar pattern for you. We look
for a false belief you are holding that might be related to the issue
that is being presented for healing. The table work follows and deepens
the integration of the dialog work. Usually a “chakra reading”
is taken to look for distortions in the healthy flow of incoming energy
through the major energy centers. A “chelation” is done
to balance and energize your chakras and aura. Specific work follows
to correct or repair distortions or damage. You have a chance on the
table to track your process in a different way from the mental dialog.
You can also simply let go and allow yourself to just receive new
energies into your body to fuel your healing process and to replace
old beliefs and patterns you have cleared away.
|What do I wear?
||Wear comfortable clothing. You keep your clothes
on when you receive a healing. You just remove your shoes and any
accessory that might create discomfort while on the table.
|How long does an appointment
||A healing can be for 1 hour or 1.5 or 2 hours.
Ninety minutes is recommended for the first session. Subsequent appointments
will be determined by the client’s needs.
|What is an aura or energy field?
Just as there are several physical systems in
our bodies (circulatory, digestive, nervous), so are there several
energy systems (chakras, meridians, auric field). They all work
together to create “life,” Your aura is really your
personal space, that area around you that you associate as yours.
It is an energy field that surrounds and interpenetrates the physical
body. It holds the positive life force as well as unexpressed emotions,
physical traumas, suppressed feelings and thoughts. 80% of our communication
is done through the auric field. It is the medium through which
we express love and come into relationship with the world.
|What are chakras?
Centers of activity that receive, assimilate and express your life
force or energy.
• Spinning spheres of bioenergetic activity emanating from
the major nerve ganglia branching forward from the spinal column.
• Basic states of consciousness
|How can I make the most of my appointment?
||Bring your curiosity, be open to new experiences
and leave expectations behind.
