Frequently Asked Questions
What does a healing session entail?
Most healing sessions are made up of a combination of Life Coaching, Energy Healing, plus following up on changes from the previous sessions, current issues or challenges, with recommended solutions. Therapeutic Yoga, Nutritional, and other modalities of healing are also often utilized.
Generally the first session is spent in assessing the client's needs, identifying issues and goals, etc. The client is then provided with information on the healing services and theory behind them, and any questions are addressed. Possible solutions are discussed, the body's energy field may be scanned, and a healing strategy is developed. A course of further action that is acceptable to the client is arrived at. Such a course of treatment may involve a single healing modality or a combination of two or more. Some actual practice of healing may be performed too during the first session.
In future sessions, the healing course previously agreed upon is implemented in full.
