FAQs

Does energy medicine and remote healing really work? 

Yes, it works!  I can tell you after doing this for over 8 years that my patients do see results.  I personally started doing this work because I was stuck in my own healing process.  After years of using the combination of modern medicine, as well as alternative therapies, I would get better for awhile, but then it would start creeping back.  It wasn’t until I started addressing my condition with energy work, on a physical and emotional level to rewrite my programs, that I became asymptomatic.  Sometimes we are too close to our own patterns to see what needs to shift.  When both patient and energy healer come together with the intention to heal, we are able to access information from the patient’s innate self and create a change in the programs of the body, the subconscious mind and the energy field.  

The reason distance healing intention works is due to nonlocality.  According to Physics of the Universe,

“Nonlocality describes the apparent ability of objects to instantaneously know about each other’s state, even when separated by large distances (potentially even billions of light years), almost as if the universe at large instantaneously arranges its particles in anticipation of future events.”

This is an oversimplification, but basically what this is saying is everything is connected and we can interact with each other throughout space and time. 

How do you use acupuncture to treat patients if you’re in a different place?

My education in the healing arts began with traditional Chinese medicine (TCM).  The theory behind Eastern medicine is the method I use to assess the patient during a treatment.  My health background enables me to put the information that arises intuitively in the sessions into a context that helps the patient mentally process the information.  Sometimes an acupuncture point or a Chinese herb show up, but ultimately it is Eastern medicine’s holistic vision of the body and how it interacts with the world around us that allows me to better facilitate healing. 

At the heart of TCM is the understanding that the body is a system of organized channels associated with specific organs, which are run by qi (pronounced chi).  Qi is often described as vital energy, life force or universal energy.  It is the motive force that drives all things, including our bodies.  As TCM is a form of energy medicine it is very easy to apply its theories and applications to a distant energy session, without the needles. 

Similarly, I use  N.E.T. and BodyTalk as a framework to help explain the information that is intuitively coming in.  We can additionally use the specific protocols associated with each to shift an area where the patient is stuck.  For more information on traditional Chinese medicine, N.E.T. and BodyTalk, please see services.

What does it mean to treat the root?

Treating the root in its most simple explanation means that we treat the whole person; body, mind, spirit.  Eastern medicine and energy medicine take the approach of treating the whole body.  It differs from Western medicine in that conventional medicine tends to diagnose and treat based on symptoms, whereas energy work and TCM treat based on the body’s constitution and the main (root) cause of the symptoms.  For example, if a patient was experiencing the symptoms of a migraine, Western medicine would treat that as the diagnosis.  An Eastern or holistic approach would be that there could be several different diagnoses based on the blockages and deficiencies in the body, each requiring a different course of treatment. 

What kind of conditions do you treat?

It is possible to treat most conditions with some level of success, because we are looking at the individual patient in each session.  Everything is connected, so often symptoms that were assumed to be unrelated will also be resolved.  A patient seeking help for extreme fatigue may find that suddenly their knee pain has disappeared.  Additionally, treating the whole person means that we can shift not only physical conditions, but also address emotional patterns that may be leading to feelings of overwhelm, feeling stuck or other emotions that are affecting quality of life. 

Below are some conditions I commonly see in my practice:  menopause, endometriosis, fertility, painful periods, women’s health, IBS, Crohn’s disease, endocrine disorders, autoimmune conditions, adrenal fatigue, fibromyalgia, eczema, hives, allergies, respiratory infections, nausea, hernias, headaches, migraines, pain, back pain, inflammation, surgical recovery,  sleep issues, stress, anxiety, depression, worry,  fear, feeling stuck and so much more. 

What are the benefits of doing a distance session?

A different framework of diagnosis leads to different results.  Many patients who seek energy work have tried everything else and are at a loss of what to do next.  Distant healing can be an extremely useful alternative, because its approach and information comes directly from the body’s innate intuition.  It allows the body to prioritize what needs to be addressed often leading to a healing breakthrough.  Additionally, it works quite well to support or enhance other forms of therapy; filling in the gaps or creating enough of a change to help you shift in the right direction. 

A lot of times we are trapped by our patterns and it’s difficult to see an alternative, so we end up repeating them over and over again.  Energy healing helps you understand why you do the things you do.  It uncovers subconscious programming and helps to rewrite them, so you can get out of the loop. 

From a practical perspective distant healing is extremely convenient because you can do it from anywhere.  You don’t have to get in your car and drive to a physical location and the actual time of the appointment is all the time you need to allow for in your schedule. 

What happens during a distance energy healing treatment?

Often people ask if there is anything special they need to be doing during the treatment.   The truth is you could be doing yard work and still get the healing benefit.  However, in order to maximize your experience I recommend finding a place where you won’t be interrupted and can direct your attention to the call.  Some people like to lay down with soothing music in the back ground or a dimly lit room for relaxation.  I think that’s a great approach, but it isn’t strictly necessary. One of the major benefits of this kind of healing is its convenience.  I’ve had patients who close their office door on their lunch break or listen as they take a peaceful walk in the woods.  You should not feel hemmed in by specifics of how the session should go; it’s okay to experiment with what works for you. 

In terms of the logistics of the session, before your initial appointment paperwork will be emailed to you, that is to be filled out, signed and emailed back at least 2 hours before the appointment time.  I will call you at the designated time of your appointment.  Before we begin payment will be taken over the phone.  After that we will proceed to the actual healing treatment. 

In an effort to create awareness of how meaningful an impact distant energy healing can have on your life, I’ve recently changed my fees to a sliding scale.  The intention is to make the treatments more accessible to a wider range of people.   Cost of a session is on a sliding scale of $40 to $80.  What this means is you pay whatever you are comfortable with in that range.  If you are feeling abundant and would like to pay on the higher end of the scale, that’s wonderful.  However, if you’re just not there, pay what feels right, there are never any questions asked.    

Out of respect for the time of my patients, I do stay within the designated time frame of 45 minutes for each session.
