Intuitive Energy Healing
Frequently Asked Questions
What is energy healing?
Energy healing is a holistic practice where practitioners work with the energy fields around the body, including the chakras and the aura to help balance, heal and remove energetic blockages from the body. Because these energy fields are constantly shifting, sometimes we can acquire misalignments and changes in vibration that result in physical or emotional dis-ease. Energy healing allows flow, harmony and vitality back into these fields. I am a Healing Touch student, having trained through level 3, and a Certified Reiki Practitioner, so I tend to use techniques from both fields. Some practitioners believe that they heal the client, but I am a firm believer that the person doing the healing is the client. I simply support your body’s own healing mechanisms by holding space for your energy fields to come back into alignment.
Who may benefit from energy healing?
Because energy healing supports healing of the mind, body and spirit, it can be beneficial for everyone. It may be especially beneficial for anyone who wants to:
- Release stress or muscle tension
- Bring support to a specific disease
- Release emotions or soothe emotional distress
- Seek more balance
- Alleviation or easing of physical pain or tension as a result of Reiki inducing a deep relaxation response in the muscles, organs, and tissues of the body.
- Quiet the mind
- Connect into their higher self and other spiritual dimensions like you would in meditation
What should I expect at an in-person energy healing session?
I’ll start by asking you some questions about how you’re feeling and what you’d like to get out of the session. Then I’ll ask you to lie face up on a massage table, fully clothed, with the option of being covered with a sheet and/or blanket, depending on your preference. First I’ll scan your energy field by passing my hands above the surface of your body, noticing any sensations or imbalances. Depending on your preference, I’ll then gently place my hands on or above the body. There is generally no talking during the sessions. At the end of the session, I’ll ask you for feedback and information about your experience. Then we’ll discuss my findings and any messages that come through from spirit (optional). Then we’ll talk about when you may want to come in for another session (if you like) and any self-care strategies and techniques you can use moving forward. The entire session takes about an hour.
What should I expect at a virtual energy healing session?
The only difference from the in-person session is that you’ll video in from a location of your choosing using Google Meet. I recommend finding a comfortable place where you can lie down and be uninterrupted. I’ll play music for you if you’d like, or you can play your own.
What will I feel during the session?
Everyone’s experience with energy work is different. Some people have sensation of energy moving throughout their body, relaxation, feelings of euphoria, feelings of being cared for, or vivid visualizations, images or colors. Some folks may experience an emotional release such as joy or tearfulness, or may receive insight into how to manage certain aspects of their lives. Some may fall asleep for the duration of the session. It’s important to note that not everyone may feel immediate physical sensations during energy healing sessions, and that the effects of the healing may not be immediately apparent. Some people may notice changes in their physical, emotional or mental state in the hours, days or weeks following the session.
Are in-person sessions more powerful than virtual sessions? How can energy healing happen from a distance?
Because energy is not limited by space or time, I can connect into your unique “radio wave” without being in front of you. Being in the same room as a practitioner can make the experience feel more grounded or concrete, but remote sessions can be just as or even more effective. There are multiple scientific studies supporting the efficacy of energy healing as well as distance energy healing.
What is different about the type of energy work you offer? What makes it intuitive?
While I have trained in various modalities of energy healing like many other practitioners, I also work as an intuitive medium. This means that as I connect with your energy system, I may receive messages from loved ones in spirit or intuitive guidance to share with you. This is an optional aspect of these sessions and I will only connect to you in this way with your permission.
Does everyone have the option of receiving a session in person?
Unfortunately, no. At the moment, out of concern for my personal well-being, I reserve the discretion to decide which of my clients receive energy healings in-person versus online. It is my preference that I see new clients that I do not know online. For friends, acquaintances, or referrals from friends or current clients, you are welcome to have your session in my home office. I also have the option of traveling to you if you live locally. In the future, once I work out of a brick and mortar office, I will be happy to receive all of my clientele in person. If it feels very important that you receive energy work in person, I would recommend finding another local practitioner.
