Energy healing restores balance to the body’s subtle energy systems by removing energetic blockages. Once the blockage is removed, energy is free to flow to the area that was blocked, igniting the body’s innate capacity to heal itself. We all experience blockages, most often rooted in old unexpressed emotions or physical traumas. Over time, these blockages can contribute to and maintain emotional, mental, physical, relational, and spiritual suffering.
