REIKI (ray-key) Reiki - is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by gentle touch and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy. A treatment feels like a wonderful glowing radiance that flows through and around you. Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security and well being. Reiki can also be administered from a distance when requested. Many have reported miraculous results.
Biofeedback is the process of gaining greater awareness of many physiological functions primarily using instruments that provide information on the activity of those same systems, with a goal of being able to manipulate them at will. Some of the processes that can be controlled include brainwaves, muscle tone, skin conductance, heart rate and pain perception. In biofeedback, you are connected to electrical sensors that help you receive information (feedback) about your body (bio).
Biofeedback may be used to improve health, performance, and the physiological changes that often occur in conjunction with changes to thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Eventually, these changes may be maintained without the use of extra equipment, for no equipment is necessarily required to practice biofeedback.
SOUND HEALING OR TONING - is one of the oldest forms of healing. It is used to restore the body's harmony and balance through the use of vocalizations allowing a healthy resonant frequency. No musical or voice experience is necessary as each voice is unique and carries its own healing qualities, from the sea lion's bark to the dolphin's shrill cry, and can be expressed solely or from within a group setting. Drums, bells, cymbals and other simple percussion instruments may also be used. A healthy body is harmonically balanced so that every organ, bone, tissue and other parts have an optimum resonant frequency producing a perfectly tuned being. The use of sound as a healing tool dates back thousands of years. Now, the field of sound healing is gaining considerable attention, as sound pioneers promote the healing benefits of music, tones and instruments.
FLOWER REMEDIES - uses a system of healing designed to treat the person, not the ailment. The remedies address emotional imbalances that may block a positive state of mind. A positive mind promotes a healthy body. Barbara often combines the use of these "essences" when giving a Healing Touch session. They help restore balance and harmony within the subject.
SHAMANIC HEALING - Shamanism is the spiritual practice that our ancestors used to learn about their surroundings, to communicate with the spirits, and to heal themselves. We are descended from shamanic cultures and because of this, we still have that link to our environment: the truth of our interconnectedness has never changed ... we simply fell asleep and lost touch. A contemporary Shamanic Practitioner and Healer blends ancient and contemporary wisdom. Using the techniques our ancestors used, the practitioner can contact the Spiritual beings of our environment, and, with the help, guidance and teachings of Spirit Teachers, enable a person to find their path to well being and wholeness. Journeying is a classic technique and is practiced in one form or another by Shamans all over the world. Journeying enables you to send your Dream Body or Spirit into the Spirit World and is a powerful way of meeting with Power Animals, Spirit Teachers, finding answers to problems or to discover information and wisdom that can facilitate your personal growth and understanding. Soul Retrieval is another aspect of Shamanistic practice allowing an individual to recapture pieces of their selves lost during traumatic episodes.
ENERGY HEALING - throughout history, many cultures have believed in the existence of some sort of energy that permeates all living organisms, including human beings. This universal life energy circulates throughout the body and in an energy field surrounding the body. Health according to this model is the harmonious flow of life energy. Imbalances in the flow (due to unhealthy habits or emotions, for example) may result in dis-ease. Healers in many cultures have used their hands to transmit energy to the sick in order to balance the flow of life energy.
Conventional medicine has long used machines that emit or record various forms of energy to diagnose or treat dis-ease. For example, x-ray and laser devices give off different kinds of energy, while ECG’s and EEG’s record the electrical activity of the heart and brain.
Therapies such as Healing Touch and other healing modalities listed herein transmit subtler forms of energy and are shown to induce relaxation, relieve/decrease pain, reduce stress, clear energy blocks, speed wound healing, and balance physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being.
CRYSTAL THERAPY - uses crystals as tools for healing. The human body is a series of energy systems. Crystals are devices for adjusting and balancing these systems. Quartz crystals are used along with the Wheel of Life pendant to create powerful healing results. Many Native American Indian tribes, including the Cherokee, have used these tools for centuries.
MAGNIFIED HEALING - establishes a constant flow of energy from the Heart to the Source, the All That Is, the Infinite Mind, down to the Diamond at the Center of the Earth. The link spirals and brings a deep state of grace pulsing forth from the Hierarchy, laying the very foundation for the Ascension Process. Magnified Healing is a 5th dimensional frequency vibration healing energy and is a tool for the Ascension process because its focus is on the heart – Unconditional Spiritual Love and Compassion, we build our Light Body, we work with the Spiritual Hierarchy of Ascended Masters, and we are of service to others.
HEART AND SOUL HEALING -
This method of healing finds the old or distorted patterns our subconscious mind is still giving energy. Often, no matter how much work we may have done to clear our issues, there's still a missing piece preventing our full understanding. As a result, we create similar patterns, over and over in our lives, lifetime after lifetime, to give ourselves another chance to understand our lessons. Any fears or emotional residue we hold about a particular issue further distorts the problem, making it almost impossible to see 'the bigger picture.' Heart & Soul Healing addresses these self-made, limiting patterns, since its purpose is to assist us in integrating our whole being with our Higher Self.
