Another success with the power of energy healing.

Another success!   We recently had an Open House at the corporate office of one of our senior community partners. It had been a while since I had entered a corporate setting, but boy, could you feel the stressful energy in the building.  We provided complimentary mini-sessions (30 minutes each) to the staff, and based on our survey results, 100% of them felt better after the session.  This was everyone's first experience with Healing Touch, so we were thrilled to be able to provide them with a great experience.

Our surveys also included some thankful comments, a couple of them below.

 "Thank you for your time in doing these mini-sessions! It was very relaxing and I can already tell that some of the stress and tension areas in my body are leaving/releasing."

"I do not relax easily. Rose was able to completely relax me - amazing! I can't even describe the sense of calmness that washed over me in such a short time. Didn't want the session to end."

We are so happy to be able to continue to educate our communities on the benefits of Integrative Healing Modalities!

Back to Business

So, we've been quiet around social media for a long, long time...but that does not mean we have been quiet in our community!  We have been busy educating many of our local senior communities on the benefits of integrative modalities and specifically, focusing a lot of our time on Healing Touch.  We have a great partnership developed with The Waters and have seen great success with the residents in several of their communities.  Our growth has had its ups and downs as businesses always do, but it is always worth it when we create a new avenue for healing in someone's life.

There has been a lot of movement and research going on in the Integrative Medicine world, especially with Energy Medicine in particular.  There is a great article in the latest issue of Energy Healing (Sept/Oct 2017, pp. 27-29), called "Hoax, Hooey, or Healing?," that speaks to one person's account of how she came to experience and understand the great benefits of Healing Touch while coming from a very scientific and Western Medicine-based belief system.  It's a great article to check it out if you have doubts, or if someone else you know has doubts. It can be an abstract thing to understand until you experience it first hand, but this story gives a great example of how beliefs change.

Celebrating National Hospice Month!

We were privileged to have the opportunity to help The Hospice of the Twin Cities celebrate National Hospice Month!  We participated in an Open House at their facility and provided education and an experience to a Healing Touch session.  Illuminate Integrative Healing, along with other Healing Touch practitioners, volunteered to provide sessions to almost 20 staff members.  We received so much positive feedback and gratitude for the experience!  We surveyed the participants to help us gather more concrete feedback and of those18 who completed the survey, here are the great results! :

·       About half of the staff who received sessions had never experienced Healing Touch

·       Participants rated how they were feeling pre and post session, choosing between GOOD – GREAT - FANTASTIC

·       10 people went from GOOD to FANTASTIC

·       6 people GOOD to GREAT

·       2 people did not rate pre-session but rated themselves post as GOOD

·       Overall experience on a scale from 1 to 5, 1 being Bad and 5 being Excellent:

·       15 people rated it a 5

·       3 people rated it a 4

 What a great way to celebrate National Hospice Month with those who bring comfort to patients in our community!  We were so proud to be a part of this Celebration and were grateful to be able to provide more exposure to the impact of Healing Touch.

Stressed? Overwhelmed? Feeling out of Balance? What to do?!

Do you ever describe yourself as stressed, overwhelmed, out of balance, disconnected or worried?

If the answer is “yes,” it’s time for some Self-Care.  Self-care is a powerful practice to enhance your overall wellness to prevent illness and disease. There are three main components of self-care: 1) Your Mind (Emotional Self), 2) Your Body (Physical Self) and 3) Your Spiritual Self. 

 While Self-care can include anything you do to take time out for yourself (whether it’s making time for your hobbies, getting a massage or taking a much-needed nap!), Healing Touch specifically uses techniques to support and maintain all three components of self-care.  

One of the most common responses to a Healing Touch session is a calm and relaxed feeling that serves to increase clarity and peacefulness. Being clear and peaceful supports overall wellness.   We shared the self-chakra connection which is one great way to incorporate this practice on your own if you cannot make it to a session with a practitioner.  

STAY TUNED for additional techniques that we will be sharing to support your Self-Care routine.  Keeping a Self-Care routine helps you to be your BEST SELF by intentionally doing things that support and maintain your mind-body-spirit connection. 

Looking for ways to feel more balanced? Take the 30 Day Challenge!

Take the 30 DAY CHALLENGE.  Complete the SELF-CHAKRA CONNECTION as described below, everyday for 30 days and see if you notice any changes in your body, mind, or spirit. 

The Self-Chakra Connection is a Healing Touch technique that facilitates movement of energy between chakras or energy centers.  It is a self-care technique, meaning you can do it on your own, to help connect, open and balance the flow of energy throughout the body.  Optimally the SELF-CHAKRA CONNECTION can be completed daily.  It can be done at anytime during the day although upon waking will more likely yield the most benefit. The SELF-CHAKRA CONNECTION may be completed lying down or in a sitting position and this youtube link will show you how.  During each position, visualize a ball of white light radiating through your body between your hands.

We challenge you to try it out for 30 consecutive days and report back your results! Stay tuned as we introduce more techniques…

 

The Body Energy System 101

Curious about Energy Medicine or Energy Healing and how it all works?  Let's start with the very basics...Get to know the Energy System in your own body!  All matter is energy, and we are all made up of matter.

You have 7 main energy centers within your body, otherwise known as chakras. 

Chakra defined:

“Chakra” = spinning wheel

 A vortex of energy within the body that extends beyond the physical body

Each of the 7 main chakras in your body carry its own vibration

 Each is associated with our physical, mental and emotional interactions

Balanced and open chakras facilitate health physically, spiritually and emotionally

 Blockages and imbalance cause pain, illness or suffering 

Energy Medicine works to balance the chakras and clear blockages.   You can help facilitate the progress of sessions with a practitioner by utilizing energetic balancing techniques, breathing and yoga.

Check out the function of each chakra and where you are strong and where you might have opportunity to create more balance.
