Energy healing is a treatment that is done to promote healing of the energetic body that exists in all of us. This energetic body exists simultaneously with our physical body, with each having a direct effect on the other. Therefore, energy healing sessions may help us mentally and spiritually, as well as physically. Some of the benefits of energy healing sessions include but are not limited to:
In an energy healing session, clients may remain fully clothed and, if comfortable, will lie on their backs on a treatment table. (This is not applicable to all energy healing sessions or medicines, e.g. acupuncture, massage therapy) Occasionally, clients may be asked to lie on their stomach. Clients are not expected to do anything during a session except clear their mind, relax, and enjoy. Depending on the type of session being performed, the practicing facilitator may lay the hands/crystals/tools gently on different areas of the body to channel the healing energy, or they may simply hover above the body.
Clients may have various experiences, ranging from the feeling of warmth and tingling throughout the body, a sensation of either floating or becoming very light, or the sensation of becoming very heavy and melding into the treatment table. It is common for clients to see colors or visions, have spontaneous muscle jolts, or even have an emotional release such as crying or giggling. Experiences will differ with every client, every time, but it is important for the client to know that regardless of whether or not any of the above is experienced, the energy is still always working.
Following an energy healing session, clients are encouraged to remain as relaxed as possible. Sleep patterns may change, leaving the client either sleepy or energized. Drinking lots of water and eating healthy snacks can help balance energy levels. Journaling is also encouraged to keep track of experiences that may occur following a session. Please be sure to ask your practicing facilitator if you have any questions regarding the treatment or post-treatment experiences.
