Energy therapy is the gentle art of clearing cellular memory through the human energy field promoting health, balance and relaxation. Energy therapy is based on the concept of connection between the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual realms of our lives found in many holistic healing methods. It uses focused healing energy to clear blocks that accumulate in the body hindering the natural flow of physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual energy. This healing focus promotes personal empowerment, self-healing and spiritual growth.
Why does it Work?
For many people, feelings of being overwhelmed, anxious, and tired become a way of life. Living this way can lead to health problems such as headache, digestive disorders, back and neck pain tension, and sleeplessness, among others. Additionally, situations such as conflict in relationships, both personal and professional, being unproductive and unhappy at work, can easily and consistently develop. These types of issues, which originate from physical, emotional, and mental stress often involve an unhealthy complex relationship between mind and body, are ideally suited for treatment with energy based bodywork and therapy.
Energy therapy acknowledges that negative life experiences create emotions such as anger, fear, stress, resentment, guilt and sadness and that these emotions become trapped in specific areas of the physical body. Trapped emotions, often called energy blocks, create physical, emotional and mental disharmony.
How does it Work?
During an energy session, suppressed emotions are released without the client having to remember the actual stressful event that caused the energy block. It is a safe, gentle, supportive method that can be used to release negative patterns of the past and help to empower and bring balance to your life. It is an extremely effective healing modality that releases stress, feelings of being overwhelmed, and negative emotions.
As a result, energy therapy…
- Releases tension and everyday stress that makes you feel tired, burned out, and overwhelmed.
- Creates a renewed sense of vitality.
- Supports healing on all levels—physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
- Brings balance to your life, allowing you to enjoy a clear sense of purpose and direction.
- Leaves you with a deeply relaxed and calm state of being.
Marie considers Reiki as the "laying on of hands" and a pure energy form of healing therapy. A complete treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and wellbeing. While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It is not dependent on your belief. We believe that all things come from God. As a Christian, Marie offers this modality as a solid foundation of her faith and knowing that God is guiding and protecting us in all we do. She practices the laying on of hands with a secure belief that we are being guided to follow Jesus' example to be a healer and have been called by the Holy Spirit to use our gifts for the highest good of our clients.
Cranial Sacral Therapy
Cranial Sacral Therapy is a whole-person approach to healing and the inter-connections of mind, body and spirit. A cranial sacral therapy session involves the therapist placing their hands on the client, focusing on a wave-like rhythm that flows through the human body. We call this "tuning into craniosacral rhythm". A typical session includes the client (fully clothed) lies on a table or sitting in a seated position quietly while the practitioner makes light contact at selected points around the entire body. Using light finger pressure the goal of the session is to help the client get rid of restrictions in the cranial system to improve the functioning of the central nervous system.
