The Principals of Total Health
are the key to your own health, growth, happiness, self improvement and the
realization of your full potential. You can do it! No medicine, no
drug, no therapy, no "energy healer" and no doctor can cure anybody from
anything. The only person that can make you sick is you – therefore, the only
person that can heal you, is you. Doctors and drugs treat illness and suppress
symptoms, but they do not treat the person. It is your mental, spiritual,
intellectual, emotional, physical behavior that makes you sick or healthy. Stop
looking outside yourself for miracles - they are inside you.
If somebody tells you they can heal or cure you with either medicine or magic,
they are either incorrect or lying! There is no magic pill, no mystical spell.
There is nothing out there! It's all inside you. There is only the
optimum function of your own self healing power to get and stay healthy!
What I can do is teach you how to help yourself get
use the phrase "my practice of energy healing". It is an
inaccuracy used on purpose. I do not claim nor feel any ownership of any
kind, but wish to emphasize that I do not speak for any other person or
group. I believe my concepts to be universal, but do not care to enter
into debate or dispute about this sub-topic or that fine point. Also, remember
that I am not a doctor nor a member of the medical community. I make no
medical assertions or claims of any kind.
Life is breath, pulse, vibration, rhythm,
frequency, and constant motion. This
is evidenced by the fact that it is when you are the most still and quiet, that
you are the most aware of your breath and pulse.
Life is energy, and therefore energy has a pulse, breath, and rhythm of
it’s own. Due to things like trauma,
heredity, emotion, biomechanics, toxicity . . . the energy flow in us becomes impeded.
A large portion of our work consists of locating those blockages and
always moves mass. Ask anyone who has ever seen a bomb go off, or who was
"pushed" by wind that they could not see. These used to be the
words of the lunatic fringe, but then this fellow Einstein came along. Now
they are words of scientific fact.
some general information about the energy work that I practice. If you
were to be my client, we would both have work to do. Therefore, the
following is information about what we are, and what we are not.

What we are, and what we are not
I am not a doctor, nurse, psychologist, physical
therapist, masseur, massage therapist, chiropractor, etc.
I do not diagnose, treat, prescribe, nor perform chiropractic
I have a doctor, and when I feel I need his help, I go to him, listen to
what he tells me, and do what he says. You
should, too. It is your
responsibility to make sure your doctor is supportive of your receiving this
type of therapy.
I am not affiliated with any group, nor do I
represent or promote the philosophies or ideas of any organization whatsoever. I do not espouse the beliefs of any religion.
I have not taken The Hippocratic Oath or any other oath, and do not
subscribe to anyone else’s moral, ethical, or practical codes.
I am not a member of the medical community and do not behave as if I was.
As a part of my practice, I draw upon and speak
about principles and beliefs, based upon my experiences and studies in many
diverse areas; from Rolfing to Reiki, from Hellerwork to Healing Touch,
Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurvedic Medicine, Homeopathy, Naturopathy, and
somatic, psychic, and energy studies, observations, and conclusions.
I have strong spiritual convictions, and hope that you do, too.
My work is eclectic, and draws upon many of these disciplines and
beliefs. You are not required to
“buy in” to anything, only to respect the fact that I do.
My work is not for everyone - in fact it is probably for a very small percentage
of the population! Please read around this website very carefully.
Read the Energy Healing 101 Section and
the Session Format section. It is the
goal of this website to help you in your decision making process. After
looking through, you will have a definite conclusion as to whether we are a good
match or not. Many are called . . .
Because I use the terms “healer” and
“empath” does not imply that you must be sick to benefit from our sessions.
To “heal” is to be “whole”.
The healthy stay healthy by being concerned with their wholeness.
Healing comes from God and from within you. Sicker people than you, and healthier people than you, have
found healing and peace in these sessions.
While my work has a massage component, it is
radically different from what people go for when they go to “get a massage”.
My typical work is more intense, working on the whole self, not just
muscles and joints. Really, I am
not a typical anything, and I do not have a typical session format.
My goal is not to make you feel cosmetically better for a little while.
My goal is to help you change your life permanently and dramatically in a
positive way. I expect the
extraordinary and/or miraculous every time we get together, and hope that you
do, too. It is your session, and
you are in control.
These parts of you are not related, intertwined,
connected, or anything like that. They
are all the same, and they are one. People give your “parts” many names; soul, intellect,
ego, id, etc. It doesn’t matter.
They are the same. For that reason, emotional and so-called “psychological”
stuff, often very private and close to your heart, comes out when we do
so-called bodywork. Laughter,
tears, emotional swings, etc. are quite possible in our sessions. For this reason, we must build trust in each other, and I
promise to be worthy of your trust.
You have no bad parts, dirty parts, nasty parts,
etc. You DO have private parts.
These private parts start just above the top of your head, go down just
below your feet, and out and around your whole person.
Please never let me nor anyone touch ANY
of these parts without your permission.
This is your session, and as mentioned above, you are in complete
control. However, while there are
no expectations from you, there are certain ways I do things, many of which are
explained in this document. If you
take issue with any of my core tenets, you may be coming to the wrong place.
This work is about touch.
If being touched is a concept that is repulsive to you, go away; you are
in the wrong place. While I am very intuitive, it is up to you to express
comfort and discomfort. I will
assume that you are comfortable with me touching you unless you express to me
otherwise. This is the
concept of “implied consent”,
and it is in full force in our sessions. I
won’t “do” anything to you that you don’t want done.
No means no.
we do is completely confidential.
If you were referred to me, you never have to worry that anything will
get back to that person, or anyone else. During
the course of our work, you may decide to confide in me things that few other
people know. It is important that
you are secure that I don’t judge, and I don’t tell.
The one and only exception to this would be if you told me that you were
planning to commit a felony, (especially involving doing harm to yourself or
another person) where the law and my morals would require me to take action.
We all have boundaries, and they can be functional.
Boundaries also constrict our ability to grow in new dimensions. Should you become defensive,
you will likely try to barricade yourself behind contrived boundaries.
This is your choice, of course, but it will prevent you from getting
better. Remember, you don’t have to believe anything, there is no
expected behavior from you, and you are in control. However, I will push you to
shed your old skin and grow. I am
likely to question everything you believe in, as your sacred cows might be
holding you back. I do not hold
your boundaries in as high esteem as you do.
Among other things, we will change your relationship to gravity, and
change the way muscle faschia holds muscle.
(It is beyond the scope of this document to explain this in detail, but
let’s discuss it.) This can
change your shape in real and positive ways.
Guts, love handles, saddlebags, and spare tires diminish; chests expand. In men, “truck driver bellies” pull in. In women, breasts get larger and firmer, and bellies pull in,
making you more hourglass shaped. In
everyone, spines straighten, sway backs and duck butts flatten out, cellulite
diminishes, loose skin tightens, and posture improves.
In short, you’ll likely receive naturally what many people pay
thousands to get artificially.
Whatever we do together, you will leave feeling relaxed, and in some way,
feeling more alive and aware of yourself. My
goal is to help you change your life permanently and dramatically in a positive
way. These changes may be subtle or
big; but they will be real. I cannot guarantee (other than a refund for your
session) any form of healing, but I can promise that if you expect a miracle,
you’ll receive one.
There exist contra-indications for physical manipulation, sometimes in
general, or sometimes just for the specific area of occurrence.
These can include, but are not limited to, fevers, infections, edema
(swelling), inflammations, burns, high blood pressure, infectious viral
conditions, skin rashes, some cancers, recent surgeries.
Sometimes, it is controversial whether massage-type work is
contra-indicated or not. It
is your responsibility to check with your doctor, obtain his or her permission,
and disclose to me anything that you think could be a contra-indication.
If you have anything
contagious, it may be more than just a contra indication. It may make me sick. If
I get sick with something contagious, I cannot practice. This would be inconsiderate, to say the least.
If you think you may have anything contagious, please call me to
discuss whether we should postpone our session.
Rarely, clients experience “healing crisis”, which means that you
feel worse for a while before you feel better. (This concept is known as
“Meigen” or “Menken” in Japanese Medicine.)
Because of increased circulation, if you are about to catch a cold or
other “bug” type of sickness, the session will cause it to “come on”
quicker (and also go away quicker). Because emotions may release that have trapped inside you for
years, your protective mechanisms might “kick in” a day or two after the
session. This rarely happens, but
is usually manifested by mild depression, a feeling that you’ve been invaded
or violated, or anger (often at people in your past, sometimes at yourself . . .
or me). As you move beyond healing
obstacles, you empower yourself to heal and grow.
All of these things are healthy.
good will and positive energy are important to me.
If you pray, pray for me. My
work in this area depends upon your positive feedback to me, to God, and to
people that you recommend to me. If
someone referred me to you, please let me know who that person is. May
peace, love, and understanding prevail on earth and in our hearts.
