An energy healing session with me may be different each time – depending on the needs of the individual. However, it will definitely include some or all of the following :::
Sound Healing :: healing modality that uses sacred instruments to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, the part of our brain responsible for relaxation. The sound waves from instruments, such as crystal bowls, gongs, tuning forks, chimes and drums wash over you, and can create a sense of inner vastness, stillness, and ease. It has been known to provide relief from anxiety and depression, PTSD, sleep disorders, mood swings, stress and physical pain. It is like a, ‘musical meditation,’ that encourages our bodies to heal on a cellular level.
Reiki Healing :: healing technique used to help bring the client into a state of balance by channeling life-force energy from the cosmos. This is a type of laying on hands healing modality where the client is known to experience a deep sense of peace and tranquility that allows the body to begin healing itself. During these sessions I often incorporate crystals, light acupressure and essential oils.
External Qi Emission :: also referred to as Medical Qigong, this is where the client receives energy from the qualified practioner and may include little to no touch at all since energy healing practices do not require touch in order for them to be effective. Although during these sessions I often do incorporate some light acupressure to aid in moving the qi more effectively. This type of healing, Medical Qigong, is kind of like acupuncture without the needles. It is also important to note that the client is always fully clothed, lying on their back or face down on a massage table.
Qigong Exercises :: like tai chi, qigong includes what is considered to be meditative movement exercises using intention and breath to move qi (energy) throughout the body. Qigong exercises are a big part of the healing process because they help bring us in touch with our body’s innate wisdom.
Mindfulness instruction :: mindfulness is the practice of bringing our awareness into the present moment, guided by intention and breath. When we pay attention to our breath, and intentionally focus on the present moment, it increases our overall awareness. It also allows the body to be free of the fight or flight mode that plagues western society. These practices help us to pay attention to the present moment and may include meditation and movement exercises or even mindful eating practices.
