What is Energy Medicine?

Energy Medicine is the practice of balancing the energy that flows around and through the body, leaving you relaxed and grounded, with greater access to your own deepest wisdom.

I assess the condition of the seven main energy centers that run along a vertical pathway aligned with your spine.  These centers are known as chakras, swirling vortices of life-force energy that have a direct bearing on your physical, emotional, mental and spiritual well-being.  Chakra, a Sanskrit word, means spinning disk.  Each one processes specific energies.

I sense the subtle energies through my hands.  I also receive intuitive guidance in the form of images that reflect the energies and issues at play.

I serve as a channel for healing energy.  Energies from the universal field (also knows as prana, chi, or grace) flow through my energy pathways into your receptive being.  In this way, I'm a conduit for healing.

To help you move into a state of receptivity, I guide you through a progressively relaxing meditation, use chimes and crystal bowls, and play music designed to settle your brain waves into the relaxed states of alpha and theta.  These are similar to falling asleep and waking -- that in between state of consciousness.

 What energies are “metabolized” by these chakras?

The first chakra reflects your sense of physical safety and security as well as family-of-origin issues. If you have problems with your feet or knees, are frequently sick, over or under-weight, suffer from IBS, are anxious, disorganized or fearful of change, your root chakra is likely out of balance. As safety, security and family issues are addressed, balance ensues; you begin to feel healthy, vital, grounded and secure.

Each of the remaining chakras reflects similar dynamics. The second chakra is our emotional identity; it resonates with our need for movement, pleasure, sexuality. In the third chakra we have our ego identity. This is where we come into our own, developing self-esteem, will power and pro-activity. Our social identity is found in our fourth chakra, where we experience love and relationship. Our creative identity resonates in our throat (fifth) chakra where we express ourselves. At our sixth chakra our archetypal identity contains our imagination, intuition and insights. Finally, in the seventh chakra, we have our universal identity, where we experience transcendent union with others and the divine.

Disruptions in the flow of energy running through these centers results in physical symptoms and may reflect unresolved emotional issues. 

How does energy therapy work?

Energy Medicine Practitioners are trained to assess the overall energy system. To do so, I place my hands over each chakra, sensing whether the energy flow is excessive, deficient, or blocked. I address each chakra by channeling calming, replenishing, or balancing energy -- whatever is needed. This brings your entire energy system into better balance.  I may also peer into the levels of your field, also known as your aura, to discern what may be needed there as well.

Can you just treat my pain/stress/fatigue?  I’m not comfortable sharing emotional issues.

Some clients prefer hands-on healing for pain relief or deep relaxation only. You may not be interested in the psycho/emotional components of your back pain, for example.  That’s ok. Sometimes you just want relief from pain and stress.  

Others clients are curious about the energetic origins of their physical symptoms. Knowing the emotional component of an illness or injury may lead to insights that enable you to release old beliefs that worked for you once but are no longer serving.

What can I expect if I make an appointment? 

A typical session consists of conversation (about 30 minutes).  Then I lightly place my hands on your feet, legs, abdomen, chest, neck and head while you rest, fully clothed, on a massage table (30-40 minutes).  Unlike massage, I simply place my hands to channel energy. 

If you are having back pain, you may rest face-down while I address the spine; otherwise, most sessions are done face-up on the table.  Your job?  Rest, listen to meditative music, and maybe drift off for a nap!  

After the hands-on channeling, I provide energy feedback.  This includes the condition of your chakras as well as intuitive information.  I often offer self-care suggestions. Allow 90 minutes for your session.    

One hundred percent of my clients experience reduced pain and deep relaxation.

Suppose I just want to talk?

Simply expressing your concerns to a compassionate witness is very healing.  Deep listening allows me to tune into your essence, your soul presence.  Receiving this kind of attention is extremely validating.  

Meditation Space

Depending on your state of readiness, I may invite you to question your assumptions about life.  Becoming aware of and being willing to let go of beliefs that are keeping you stuck is tremendously liberating.

So, no, you need not schedule hands-on therapy.   

What do you mean by “healing”?  

Healing is a process. All clients experience pain relief and deep relaxation in one session. Permanent relief involves integrating body, mind, spirit and emotions into a coherent, flowing whole. This is a process, but I can accelerate your progress along the healing continuum.  Healing requires a commitment to examining what is no longer working for you and a willingness to incorporate changes at all levels of your being so that you can enjoy relief from your symptoms and greater well being.

It should also be noted that our troubling symptoms may part of our soul's agenda.  You may not experience relief from chronic pain, for example, but you may learn coping strategies and mindfulness practices to assist you in managing your symptoms.  There may be lessons to learn with a medical diagnosis; often, they often cause us to re-evaluate, re-prioritize and place ourselves first so that we may enjoy a healthier balance in our relationships to ourselves, others and work.

How much does a session cost?

Your investment in yourself is $90.

My ultimate goal is to provide a safe and supportive space where you can claim your divine inheritance–the peace of living in harmony with yourself, others, the earth and Source.  As a result of our work together, you will be able to make positive choices for yourself, leaving self-betrayal behind.
