Wholistic Ways Is...

Wholistic Ways is an energy healing practice that utilizes holistic methods of healing, such as Reiki, Healing Touch, Aromatherapy and Reflexology.  I let my intuition guide me during the course of the session as to what modality will be the best for the client, but the client can also request a specific treatment. 

My first introduction to energy healing occurred in 1994, when I attended a Holistic Health Fair in Burlington, Vermont.  There were several practitioners offering mini sessions throughout the weekend.  I chose to try a brief Reiki session.  It was an utterly amazing experience.

When I laid down on the Reiki practitioner's table, I had been suffering from a chronic sinus infection.  My nasal passages were completely blocked and I had a painful headache.  This had been going on for months, despite a two month course of antibiotics.  Within just a few minutes of starting the treatment, my sinus passages cleared, and my headache lessened.  The practitioner wasn't even touching my body.  He was working in my energy field, about a foot above my body.  I felt all kinds of electricity flowing back and forth in my body in the areas he was working over.  I decided immediately that I needed to learn this healing technique.

I have found that energy healing reduces pain, improves my mood, decreases the unpleasant effects of menopause and brings me more mental clarity.  I feel more balanced and whole when I practice these healing techniques on myself and receive them from other practitioners on a regular basis. 

Scientific studies prove that hands on healing has positive health effects like stress reduction, improved immune response, pain reduction and decreased need for some medications.  It can and should be used in conjunction with traditional health care practices.

If you have any questions about the different modalities or how they might help you on your journey to wholeness, please feel free to contact me.
