What is Energy Work?
Restorative and relaxing, an energy session helps the body, mind and soul come into balance.
Our entire world is energy. Flowing freely, wellbeing follows. We are able to navigate the obstacles in our day to day lives that bit better. The energy work helps us to get rid of what no longer serves us. All living things have an electromagnetic energy field and with energy work, this is one of the things we work with.
Energy Work is known as Energy Healing. Energy Healing can also be known as Spiritual Healing, Reiki, Rahanni, Tai Chi, Qi-Gong, Quantum Touch - and many others. Getting outside in nature can be equally beneficial. I believe Talking Therapy such as counselling is a form of energy work. I like to work with Reiki, Elemental Healing and Celestial Healing. As a trainee counsellor, I believe in the power of talking and listening. A combination of these can help relieve stress, tension and anxiety.
Reiki is one of the most well known healing modalities, founded by Master Mikao Usui. Rei - means universal and Ki (or chi) - means energy. When I teach Reiki, it is from the pure original Master Usui system and you will be attuned to the Usui lineage which leads back directly to Master Usui himself.
I, myself work with a client as a conduit to the energy. I provide a safe space for the client to balance as they wish, since they are responsible for their own journey and know their own limits. Therefore, I don't 'heal' as such, and prefer to be known as a an energy practitioner since I work with the client's permissions, I don't 'do' anything that they won't be aware of.
I love using the energies of our earth elements - earth, air, fire and water, hence I like to call it 'Elemental Healing', these elements can be incredibly powerful allies in your sessions. Equally, I love working with the Celestial energies of the planets and sometimes I use a combination of them all.
I see pure energy as clear water and sometimes these different modalities are simply different flavours. It depends what we need at the time and what the practitioner and client connect most with.
I intuitively help to balance the energy centres of the body using our energy field. I've listened to talks by doctors such as Donese Worden and I hear that scientists are looking to 'measure' the electromagnetic field from energy practitioners. It seems they have found that the frequency from energy practitioner's hand emits a frequency of around 7.8hz. 7.83hz is the same frequency as the earth's magnetic field - also known as the Schumann Resonance - hence why nature can be just as therapeutic. I then talk with you about how you can do the same. It can be beneficial for creating peace, clarity and stress relief as well as helping with deeper issues.
I’ve said a bit about what energy work is. What it isn't, is a magic trick or entertainment (to some, maybe). In essence, it's respectful agreement for both of us to work together on your wellbeing. I can't guarantee what you'll feel, but I can guarantee I do my best to work on your goals together.
I believe in the power of sound and often use a 528hz resonance - this being with a tuning fork and binaural beats which is highly effective in rebalancing our energy centres. I can also use crystals and colour therapy to assist a healing treatment. I also love using doTERRA essential oils in the diffuser, sometimes on the body - they are exceptional quality and can deeply assist healing on many levels. Using natural intuition and perceptive insight, I work with energy to help align your body, mind and spirit.
Occasionally people can have a bit of an 'emotional ride', temporarily, as you allow the energy to brings things into balance. For example 'cold' symptoms, aches and pains, emotional ups and downs. This is perfectly normal and doesn't always happen. It's simply things settling as your body heals through what it needs to.
To prepare for a session, in the 24 hours leading up drink plenty of water and try to choose wholefoods, leaving out white flour and sugar as much as possible (although this is not essential). Choose comfortable, non restrictive clothing for your session. You will stay fully clothed during the session, with shoes off. You’ll be lying down on the treatment bed. Energy work is mostly non contact and I’ll sometimes be placing my hands on non invasive areas of the body, such as your head, or knees for example. There is no talking during the session unless you need to tell me something. I will go through this in your consultation

I also work outside on something exciting called Energy Walks! Getting out in nature with energy work can be incredibly revitalising. I’m training as a counsellor, so energy work coupled with Talking Therapy is a wonderful Complementary Therapy dynamic. I love to work outside as much as possible and this is sometimes called 'Nature Therapy' or Eco Therapy.
Depending on what you want to work on, like any therapy or detox, we can temporarily feel some emotional ups and downs. Any areas of life we want to work through may be highlighted. You may have occasional aches as the energy brings things into balance. Remember this is temporary and is just the energy working with your own permissions to clear what no longer serves you.
If you’re new to energy work, it's definitely one to be tried rather than explained! Remember I can't guarantee how you'll feel but I do my best to guide you as you've asked me to. This is a professional, friendly and respectful working relationship. Call or email me to book a consultation and session.
I look forward to hearing from you! Karen
