We have a field of energy surrounding our body, also know as an electromagnetic field or aura, that moves and penetrates our body. When our energy is flowing naturally and unobstructed, we have a sense of balance and health. When it becomes unbalanced or blocked, for conscious or unconscious reasons, it may lead to various degrees of disharmony and illness. Energy healing focuses on balancing and harmonizing the subtle energy in and around the body using ancient and modern healing techniques. Transformation takes place as needed for each individual and can bring healing to all areas of your life, from physical ailments to negative thought patterns and emotions.
"Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you—all of the expectations, all of the beliefs—and becoming who you are.” —Rachel Naomi Remen
As we let go of negative beliefs or the expectations of others, we find our way back to our core, our essence. And that is where the healing really begins. We no longer focus on those things that don’t truly serve us. I love helping people find their power and let go of the old tapes that run in their heads of what they should or shouldn’t do, and tap into what ‘feels’ right for them— what matters to them. And so another quote by Ms. Remen:
“If you carry someone else's fears and live by someone else's values, you may find that you have lived their lives.”
Our energy field is sensitive and has the capacity to pick up other people's emotions, fears and worries. In healing sessions I not only work to release the energy of others, but I also help my clients with tips on how to keep their energy free and clear of what isn’t theirs.
Our body and energy fields are similarly affected by our thoughts. Our body is a faithful friend and will respond to whatever we tell it, and so I work with clients to help clear the old beliefs and negative mind chatter. I truly believe we can reverse the effects of negative thinking on our body. I say, "we thought ourselves into this, we can think our way out of it!"
Commonly, people who end up seeing an energy medicine practitioner have exhausted all other resources. My hope is that more and more people realize energy medicine can be incredibly beneficial before a diagnosis is given. It’s a powerful preventative tool and is effective at clearing the day-to-day bumps of life, leaving us feeling clearer and thinking more clearly.
While the work I do is "alternative", I do believe in conventional medicine. In fact, as we move through major physical ailments it’s important that we have a team backing us up: doctors, naturopaths, acupuncturists, energy medicine practitioners, etc. Use all the amazing resources at our fingertips! They all bring something very healing to the table.
What to expect in a session:
An energy healing session takes place with the client fully clothed and either lying on a treatment table or sitting comfortably in a chair. I use my hands in a non-invasive manner to move energy blockages. This may be accomplished by lightly placing my hands on the body in a series of locations from the head to the feet. Although light touch is often used during a session, it is not always necessary or needed to move the energy. In addition, a session may include talk therapy to help transform the energy and thought patterns running at a deep level of the subconscious.
During a session, a client may have a variety of experiences or responses. Some clients feel immediately relaxed, or fall asleep. Others have a surge of feelings as the energy blockages are being released. Some may experience tingling, warmth or coolness, while others feel little or nothing. Each session is different depending upon what is cleared and how the client progresses.
