WHAT IS ENERGY HEALING? Our bodies are energetically alive. This energy plays a role in our well-being and health, and if it becomes unbalanced, blocked or compromised in some way, illness on some level may manifest. Mindfulness meditation, guided imagery and various forms of energy healing, including Reiki and Healing Touch, have been shown to enhance the healing process. Studies have shown that they aid relaxation and reduce pain, as well as accelerate the body's ability to heal. These practices are based on a heart-centered, caring relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facilitate the client's health and healing. A brief, general overview of each of these modalities is included below.

is a technique that began in the licensed nursing community in the United States in the 1980’s. It works with the body's energy field. Perhaps more than some other types of energy healing, its teachings focus on physical healing such as healing wounds and relieving pain. However, it also aims to facilitate emotional, mental, and spiritual health. Like many forms of energy healing, it works to restore harmony and balance to its recipients' energy systems so that self-healing can take place. The client remains fully clothed during the session.
