Healing is a completely natural process. It is thought to be a flow of beneficial energy between the Healer and the recipient that deals with the "dis-ease" at its deepest level and frees your natural resources to work in the most effective way for you.
What happens during a Healing session?
Healers work with their hands at a short/long distance from your body, or sometimes with a light touch, inviting you to relax and close your eyes if you wish. Usually patients are aware that something is happening. Most experience a variety of sensations, perhaps warmth or coolness, tingling and pressure, or pain coming to the surface (and often dispersing) as the energy goes to work. Some clients experience little more than warmth but the process is no less effective.
What can Healing do for me?
Healing can be helpful with a wide range of conditions, sometimes to a remarkable degree. It is a process of revitalisation, relaxation and release at a profound level, which helps your body to adjust and heal spontaneously at its own pace and in its own way. Healing seeks out the underlying cause as well as the "presenting symptom". This can mean that the outcome of a Healing session maybe beneficial in an unexpected way and not necessarily immediately: for example you may feel a sudden benefit days later or gradual improvement over a period of time. There may be times when you experience some kind of emotional release as part of the Healing process. Sometimes the process is obvious, sometimes more subtle.
How often do I need to go for Healing?
One session may be sufficient, but it is more usual that several sessions are needed. If you are experiencing Healing for the first time it may take you two or three sessions to relax into the process and enjoy the full benefit. You can always discuss progress with your Healer.
Do I need to be ill to receive Healing?
No. Healing is about restoring balance to your life and in your relationships with others, about expressing feelings, about change and the need for it. It often helps bring a sense of proportion and perspective and a greater feeling of "feet on the ground", of regaining control, irrespective of whether you are ill or not. On the other hand, it can be especially helpful in crisis situations and with terminal illness. It can stand alone as a therapy, has no harmful side effects and works well with any other therapy. It is a process, above all, to help you to help yourself.
Do I need faith?
No. Healers work from a wide range of philosophies and many simply see their ability as a natural resource. Nothing special is expected of the patient, however, except perhaps openness to anything that happens and a degree of trust in the healer.
Healing and my doctor
It is important to maintain contact with your doctor if you have a condition that requires conventional medical support or treatment. Healing complements the treatments your doctor is giving you so do tell her/him that you are receiving healing, and about any positive benefits you experience. Your doctor may be interested in finding out more.
Is my Healer qualified?
In common with other professional therapists, all Healing Trust members carry insurance and subscribe to a strict code of conduct. All Healing Trust Healers have followed a 2 year course of training and personal development.
Does it work?
Anything from just one session up to a series of 5/6 regular sessions would be sufficient to convince you beyond doubt that improvements have occurred since your first visit. You might also feel lighter and brighter, more positive in attitude and notice happy coincidences occurring in your life. Local success stories include patients who have recovered from physical problems, depression and stress.
How does it work?
Healing is a natural therapy where Healing energy is channelled by the Healer through to the patient. When our energy is unbalanced or depleted (resulting in illness or stress) the Healer acts as a gentle set of jump leads and the energy is then drawn to where it is most needed. The same is true when we eat food - the goodness goes to where it is most needed without us having to think about it. For this reason, the Healer does not need to know your problem for Healing to take place, but you are free to talk about it if you wish.
Can Healing do any harm?
Healing is gentle so can do no harm. On the rare occasion, someone might feel worse for a few days before improving, but this is part of the Healing process where deep stress is being released. If this happens, rest up and relax to allow the process to work. Should you feel any concern, contact your Healer.
What will happen on my first appointment?
A Healer will explain to you what to expect and answer any questions that you may have. Then you simply sit in a chair or lie on a couch in relaxing surroundings whilst the Healer works around you, either with a light touch or none at all - it is your choice. It is quite normal to feel tingling, heat, coolness or even discomfort coming to the surface to be released as the Healing energy works. Or you might feel nothing at all - it makes no difference to the outcome. Your job is to relax as much as you can during the session and allow it all to happen. The majority of our patients feel very relaxed afterwards, which is an outward sign of inner improvement.
