Healing Through Balance

Bringing Balance to the Mind, Body, and Spirit

Frequently Asked Questions

I have more extensive FAQ pages on each of my official sites so I’m only including some basic questions here.  If you have a question you’d like me to include, feel free to leave a comment or submit it via the email contact form at the bottom of the page.

What is Energetic Healing?

Energetic healing is a method of alternative/complementary medicine in which the healer is trained to sense and direct energy to clear and balance a person’s energetic bodies which allows the physical and emotional bodies to heal themselves.  Energetic healing is not a “cure” or shortcut … but it is a great complement for any other healing modality.

What is Reiki?  

Reiki is the Japanese word for the life energy that flows through all things in the Universe.  The practice of Reiki is a healing modality using this Universal energy to clear and balance a person’s energetic body (or field if you prefer) to aid the physical body in maintaining its own health.

How can Energetic Healing/Reiki help me?  

The “ki” (energy) present within an individual should be strong and free flowing.  When this is so, the body and mind are in a positive state of health.  But when our energy becomes weak or blocked it can lead to physical and/or emotional imbalance.  An energetic healing session helps to clear the energy pathways within the body so that your body can keep itself as healthy as possible.

Can Energetic Healing/Reiki help my pet?  

Absolutely!  All living beings have a particular energy flow within their bodies.  Companion animals will frequently take on stresses from their humans and energetic healing methods can help them release that stress more easily.  Some animals may not do well being close to a practitioner (animals are much more sensitive to energies than humans are) but all will nearly always do well with a distance session.

What if I’m taking medication?  

Not a problem.  Energetic healing complements all other forms of healing and does not inhibit the effects of surgeries or medications.  It may even help your other healing methods work better.  By maintaining the flow of energies through the pathways in your body, you give your body the best possible chance to heal itself.

What are Chakras?

Chakra is a Sanskrit word that translates roughly to “wheel” in English.  There are hundreds of chakras within our subtle bodies, and each is a small energy center (similar to a vortex) that connects us to the rest of the Universe.  I personally prefer to work with the chakra system (as opposed to meridians or other flow based systems) mainly because I was dealing with chakras long before I became involved with Reiki and other energetic healing methods.  I’ve included some information on the seven major chakras in this post:  Balancing Your Chakras
