For the Energy Body

In Energy Medicine, ENERGY is the MEDICINE!

Energy treatments focus on the energetic system (energy field, or aura, chakra centers, and meridian lines) with typical goals to:

  • prevent illness and maintain optimal functioning of the body
  • increase energy
  • facilitate relaxation and reduction of pain and swelling
  • diminish side effects of medical interventions and maximize effectiveness of medications and treatment
  • promote rapid healing and recovery from injury and trauma
  • enhance their body’s self healing and a sense of well being.

A typical session includes: brief intake focused on areas of concern, assessment of the chakras and energy field, and tailored treatment(s) for clearing, boosting, and balancing the energetic system.
