What is Energy Healing?
And Other Frequently Asked Questions
Self care is a big piece of the healing journey
Physical and emotional concerns are often related to deeper issues.
Pain, illness and disease can often be the result of an imbalance of energy. What happens in your body often begins in your mind, your emotions and your beliefs. Just like the food you eat, the thoughts you think can have a major impact on your health.
Energy healing is a safe and nurturing approach to healthcare. By restoring balance and renewing the flow of energy, healing facilitates the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Aligning the energy in and around the body brings increased function and improved mental and emotional states.
For thousands of years, in other countries and cultures, healing has been considered “conventional medicine” and is now rapidly emerging in the United States as a predominant complement to allopathic (standard) medical treatment.
What happens in the body begins in the field, restoring balance is a preventive measure and vital component to optimal health and well-being.

What Are Chakras?
What does Energy Healing and Your Chakras have in common?
The human body is made up of chemicals that produce electricity.
There are 7 major energy centers called Chakras that run along the spinal cord and emanate three to four inches from the body.
Chakras produce an electromagnetic charge that sends us vital information about our physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual health.
The chakras supply energy to our organs.
Thoughts, beliefs, and life experiences are sifted through our energy centers and stored in our tissues and cells.
Physical and emotional pain and illness can occur when chakra energy is restricted, weak or misdirected.
Looking into the chakras reveal what is happening in your body, your emotions and in your life.
Who we are in the world, our sense of belonging, connection to family beliefs, our identity.
What we feel in the world, the center of sexuality, creativity and emotions.
Solar Plexus Chakra:
What we believe in the world. Our “stories”, the center of our personality and self esteem.
How we are in relationships in the world. The center that links the lower three chakras (physical) to the upper three chakras (spiritual).
The center of how we communicate in the world.
Brow (Third Eye) Chakra:
How we see (perceive) the world. The center of intuition.
The center of of divinity. Our connection to spirituality.

What Happens In a Session?
Each session will last approximately an hour.
Clients remain fully clothed either sitting in a chair or lying down on a massage table.
When you arrive Mindy will spend a few minutes talking with you, to answer any questions and discuss what is present in your life that needs healing.
Becoming an active participant is a vital component to your success. Each session will begin with you setting an intention for healing.
Mindy will complete an assessment of your energy field as well as the flow of the chakras and share her conclusions with you.
Healing work is done above the body and at times may involve gentle hands on touch. Focused attention allows the energetic tension in identified regions to unwind and naturally redirect energy to areas in need of healing.
On occasion, as the energy begins to move there may be a brief acceleration of symptoms. You may experience sensations such as tingling, changes in temperature, emotions, memories, etc…
As balance is restored, the body’s natural ability to heal itself is facilitated.
Energy healing is a gentle, loving, and non-invasive technique
After The Session Clients may feel relaxed, rejuvenated or fatigued.
Toxins may be released from unblocked tissues that could cause aches or flu-like symptoms. This may occur for up to 48 hours.
Drink plenty of water to flush toxins out of the body. An Epsom salt bath will help relieve symptoms and is very restorative. Dissolve ½ to 1 cup of Epsom salt in warm water and soak for no longer than 15 minutes.
