What is Energetic Healing?
There is a life energy that flows through all
things in the Universe and whether you refer
to this energy as “ki” (pronounced “key”) as
the Japanese do, “qi” (pronounced “chee”) as
in Chinese medicine, “prana” from ayurveda,
or just “energy”, the energy that is present within a
living being should be strong and free flowing. When
this energy is flowing properly, the body and mind are
in a positive state of health. But when our energy
becomes weak or blocked it can lead to physical
and/or emotional imbalance.
I think most people are at least familiar with the
theory behind the practice of acupuncture, and the
practice of using and directing energy as a healing
modality is similar. When visiting an acupuncturist,
s/he determines where the energy blockages exist and
place the needles at very specific points to break the
blockage up and reinstate the flow of energy within
The main difference is that there are no needles or
other tools needed with Energetic Healing (a big
bonus in my opinion!). The practitioner has been
trained to feel the client’s energy directly and clear
any blockages without needing to touch the client. In
fact, Energetic Healing can be done without even
being in the same room ... a distance session works
just as well as an office visit.
The energy used during an Energetic Healing session
can be considered an “intelligent energy”. In addition
to clearing and balancing a body’s energy field, it can
be used to help resolve emotional issues or situations
that may be causing stress to an individual, group, or
animal. And because it always works
toward the best outcome (some use
the term “highest good”) for the
individual and any of their
situations, there is always a benefit
from an Energetic Healing session.
The process during each Energetic Healing session is
soothing and relaxing … as with other energetic
healing modalities, one just sits or lies in a quiet room
allowing the practitioner to work with their energy,
clearing the pathways in the energetic body to
promote the optimum flow of energy. This supports
the physical body in its efforts to heal itself. The
client may feel sensations during the session (I
sometimes feel a “pulling” when negative energy is
removed), may feel “floaty” and lightheaded, or may
Emotions or images may come up during the session,
or the healer may intuit emotional distress, symbols,
or other visual signals. It is frequently helpful to
discuss any emotions or images that come up during
the session but it’s not required. You can feel free to
share anything with me ... as a member of the IARP I
follow their code of ethics (regardless of what energy
is used during a session). This includes protecting
your privacy ... just like you would expect with a
medical professional, any conversations between
practitioner and client are strictly confidential.

Yes, Energetic Healing can help our
animal friends too!
Companion animals frequently will
attempt to take on their human partner’s
stress, causing an imbalance in their
own bodies. Helping to keep your pet’s
energy flowing means a healthier
