Understanding
Healing


Healing is a natural energy therapy, which has been practised since ancient times. Mentions of the laying on of hands and of healing powers have been made in many traditional texts. Though traditionally associated with saints and sages, healing can also be practised by ordinary men and women. A Spiritual Healer today is trained to tap into universal healing energies around him/her, and then to channel these to their client, through their hands. Spiritual Healers intuitively adapt the healing energy to the individual client, so that each consultation is unique.



How do I choose a healer?

Those seeking a healer should look for someone who is a member of a professional body, who is properly insured and is subject to the terms of the healing Code of Conduct which ensures that high professional standard and a consistent approach are maintained.



What happens during a healing session?

The healing takes place with the client either seated comfortably in a chair or lying down, fully clothed. It usually takes between 30-45 minutes, the healer working silently either ‘on the body’, using gentle touch with the client’s consent, or ‘off the body’, in the aura of the client. The atmosphere is one of professionalism, respect, kindness and confidentiality.




How is healing generally experienced?

Healing is most often experienced as restful and comforting. Clients commonly reporting feeling calmer and more energized afterwards. While receiving healing they may feel a change of temperature, a tingling sensation, or emotional release. Alternatively they may feel nothing in particular during the treatment but notice later that they feel better in some way.



Who can benefit from Healing?

Healing can be given to people of all ages, races, faiths and walks of life and in all health conditions.

Healing treats the whole person, and may be profoundly felt on many levels. By energizing body, mind and spirit, it can successfully address problems such as anxiety, depression and insomnia. Additionally it can help a multitude of physical symptoms. Recommendable as an aid to recovery from illness and other challenging circumstances, it can restore a zest for life, and its effects can be far-reaching for a person, in their general happiness, work and relationships.



What it isn't...

Healing is not a substitute for medical advice, and is a complementary, rather than alternative, therapy. It is not usually a ‘quick fix’ therapy, although its effects are often instantly felt. Profounder effects usually take place gradually, over several sessions. Because it is a therapy that is not results-focused, it may relieve other symptoms than those for which the healing was originally sought. Thus it does not promise to cure, but instead gives a helping hand, a gesture of light and love to another person, which will illuminate their life.
