Energywork, Energy Healing and Energy Medicine

Combining analytical knowledge and intuitive understanding, energywork and energy medicine addresses the subtle infrastructures of energy systems of an individual.  Energy medicine unites art and science to promote the well-being of body, mind and spirit.

The importance of balanced energy to continued good health

The energy body is the seen and unseen movement, including muscular movements, movement of tissue fluids, cellular and molecular vibrations, movement within the body fields, and movement of life force itself.

The energy body directly affects, and is largely responsible for, ones moods, emotions and vitality. A balanced energy system supports functioning from a sense of greater fluidity, integration and general well-being.

How is energywork performed?

Performed fully clothed, a session typically lasts between 45-90 minutes while in a reclining position on a massage table.  The practitioner may place their hands in specific positions on the recipient’s’s body or work within the energy fields surrounding the body.

When is energywork appropriate?

Energywork is ideal as an aid in the effort to cope effectively with stresses encountered in daily life as well as to address specific considerations. The process is designed to work in tandem with primary healthcare.

How often should an energywork session be received?

The number and frequency of sessions received varies, yet a minimum series of three sessions is recommended.  Maintenance sessions, if needed, should be at intervals of every two to four weeks.

What are the benefits of receiving energywork?

While energywork sessions are a wonderful way of maintaining a sense of wellness and well-being, some of the benefits expressed by those receiving energywork sessions have been:

  • Complementing traditional medical procedures
  • Strengthening & revitalizing the body’s natural defenses
  • Releasing & reducing accumulated stress
  • Enhancing creativity & personal transformation

Energywork and Energy Medicine sessions may include:

Healing Touch

The Healing Touch Program™ describes Healing Touch as a biofield therapy that is an energy based approach to health and healing. It uses touch to influence the human energy system, specifically the energy field that surrounds the body, and the energy centers that control the energy flow from the energy field to the physical body. Janet Mentgen began developing the Healing Touch Program in 1989 while a practicing nurse in Denver, Colorado.

These non-invasive techniques utilize the hands to clear, energize, and balance the human and environmental energy fields affecting physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health and healing.

Healing Touch is based on a heart-centered caring relationship in which the practitioner and client come together energetically to facilitate the recipient’s health and healing. The goal in Healing Touch is to restore harmony and balance in the energy system placing the recipient in a position to self heal. Healing Touch complements conventional health care and is used in collaboration with other approaches to health and healing.

Jin Shin

Jin Shin is based upon the aspect of universal flow of life force energy and utilizes acupuncture points in its sessions. The fingertips of the practitioner provides a light yet penetrating touch that encourages and supports the body’s natural energy flow.

The practitioner follows specific sequences of points along designated flow paths—concentrating upon twenty-six energy release points which act as circuit breakers. Jin Shin stimulates the flow of energy through these points allowing for greater balanced flow within the body and throughout the levels of mind and spirit

The recipient is encouraged to become involved subconsciously, directing how the energy is received. This compassionate partnership enables the energy to circulate to whatever depth the recipient requires, resulting in a deep level of relaxation and healing.


Reiki is a compassionate, energetic healing art. A system of natural healing that positively affects the whole person. Reiki, also known as the Usui System of Natural Healing, was developed in Japan during the 19th century and has been practiced in this country for more than five decades.

The system is the result of one man’s quest to attain the knowledge necessary to heal the integrated aspects of the self. Mikao Usui’s pursuit yielded much more than the personal knowledge he sought, it also provided a way to convey this information to others, in a way easily understood and practiced.

Reiki is based upon the channeling of universal life force energy, the energy that pervades and surrounds all life. Through methods, techniques and practices one learns to focus and direct this energy for specific purposes and outcomes of self-healing.
