Energy Healing


Using the hands to comfort and soothe is the oldest healing method there is. With the fear of the unknown and the rise of scientific methods, this simple yet effective means of alleviating suffering was relegated to the past. It has refused to stay there, however, as people are discovering that modern medicine is not completely meeting their needs. Research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows that every year more people are using alternative methods in their search for something that will help them. Research also found that people seek out alternative and complementary practitioners because they want to be seen as the complex individuals that they are instead of just body parts, and they want to have a more active role in their own healing process.

I view energy healing, which is gentle and non-invasive, as the complement and balance to the more aggressive approach of allopathic medicine. In combination they are the yin and yang, the feminine and the masculine, creating a wholeness that either by itself lacks. Many mind/body programs that are now part of hospitals are showing that integrative medicine is the future.

One of the most satisfying aspects of my energy healing practice is to alleviate a problem that a person may have had for months or years, and for which no other treatment has been effective. Many times a physician will prescribe medications that have harmful side effects, or surgeries that do not cure the problem and sometimes make it worse. Eventually the patient may be told that he or she will “just have to live with it.”

During an energy healing session one of the first things that a person will notice is the deep sense of relaxation and well-being that occurs as their stress and anxiety levels drop. This alone is healing, as stress and stress hormones are implicated in many serious disease states. As stress is relieved and the biochemistry comes into balance, the body’s natural ability to self-heal is enhanced. No matter what you are receiving healing interventions for, whether to relieve pain, accelerate healing, ease depression and anxiety, clear toxins, strengthen the body in preparation for surgery, or for any other reasons, the relaxed body can more effectively receive and utilize the healing energy. I have seen problems of long-standing, — 10 years, 20 years, even, in one case, 40 years — alleviated in one or two sessions. These may be atypical, but it gives an idea of the potential of energy healing under certain circumstances.
