Biofield Therapy

On the way to my first Healing Touch class, I twisted my ankle walking to my car. I had injured it in high school and whenever it would “pop out” after that, I limped around for several days. By the time I got to class, I couldn’t put any weight on it. I became an ad-hoc lesson as my teacher guided brand-new students to work energetically on my ankle. Within minutes, the pain had subsided. By lunchtime, I could walk normally. It felt nothing short of miraculous and I was immediately an energy healing enthusiast!

Energy medicine encompasses an array of complementary therapies that balance and heal the subtle energies in our body. Light or near-touch therapies have ancient roots and are commonly used for healing in indigenous cultures. Supported by a growing body of scientific evidence, these practices clear, balance, and restore the integrity of the human energy system to promote physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health.

Where attention goes, energy flows.

In addition to reducing pain or discomfort, biofield therapy is energy medicine that supports the healing process for those who would like to:

  • Increase mental clarity
  • Reduce feelings of stress and anxiety, producing deep relaxation
  • Release emotional, mental, and/or spiritual blocks
  • Support their healing process and sense of well-being
  • Accelerate healing from injury, medical procedures and surgery
