Life force flows within the physical body, nourishing the organs and cells of the body as it supports our vital functions. Ancients called these pathways chakras, chi or meridians.

Our life energy is responsive to thoughts and feelings. (Haven’t you entered a room when someone is having a bad day?)

When this flow of life force is disrupted through conscious or unconscious thought and feelings, it can cause diminished function in the organs and tissues of the physical body.

How Does it Heal?

Energy Medicine heals by flowing positive energy through the affected parts of the body. It raises the vibratory level of the energy field in and around the physical body causing negative energy to break apart and fall away.

Reiki, Gem Therapy and AromaTouch and other energy treatments clear, straighten and helps to heal the energy pathways, thus allowing the life force to flow in a healthy, natural way. This healing can be physical, mental, spiritual or emotional; past, present and future.

These modalities are both powerful and gentle precise systems of energetic healing.
