all about advanced integrative Energy healing

The physical body and its anatomy is part of the human energy field as well. Although it is much denser than other parts of the energy system, it is an integral part of the energy field. Our organs all have energy fields and are related to specific nerve plexus centers and endocrine glands. 

In keeping with the Holistic approach to wellness energy balancing addresses both the body, mind and spirit. At one level, clearing the energy centers heal the physical body by releasing stored blocks. To clear and modulate imbalanced, "stuck," or disharmonious energy. These energy blockages can lead to imbalances in the physical, emotional, mental or spiritual self, thus resulting in unhealthy patterns. Once these blocks are gone, the body can return to its original natural state of movement, flow and harmony.


At another level, individuals with healthy energy centers allow the flow of pure energy to move freely from the lower to the higher energy centers, and the natural state of abundance is realized. Good for a number of health issues and overall harmonizing and energizing the individual.

We have experiences all the time that are stored for later use. However, trauma memories are processed in a different way. A healthy autonomic nervous system according to Peter Levine (Somatic Experiencing Therapy) is one that is in balance and can self-regulate on its own following a disruptive-regulating event. When we have a trauma that is disrupted, the parasympathetic  which controls fight- flight is thwarted. If unable to complete this action it results in very reactive, hypervigilance, aggressiveness, and running away behaviour. When there is no safe way for the person to release the trapped energy, the polyvagal results in collapse, dissociation, and or freeze. The information is left in fragmented form, unprocessed and not stored in long-term memory. The un-integrated fragments often cause symptoms that disrupt our lives (depression, hypersensitivity, . A sound or even a smell that reminds you of the trauma can create a reaction, and in some cases elicit a full-blown panic response.

Unprocessed traumas can cause us to feel anxious, depressed, have insomnia, and have nightmares, these can be low to high in severity. It can express itself energetically in the body and energy field. Instead of the trauma feeling like it occurred in the past, it can feel like it is happening in the present. The effect of trauma can be completely take away a person's sense of safety. For example, when you have a wound your body cannot heal until the wound has been cleansed of debris. In the same way that debris inhibits our body’s ability to heal, when we experience a serious trauma it disrupts our natural healing system. The muscles and tissue constrict. Using the knowledge of the nervous system, trauma, and the language of sensations, somatic intervening can re-pattern the nervous system and bring in calm and healing.
Somatic healing approaches to trauma, chronic stress and anxiety, depression, and sleep issues provide clients with coping strategies to self-regulate their nervous system and resource themselves. This allows a safe release of the constriction, or trapped energy. First and foremost a safe place will be created for any trauma work with a client. Some techniques can go to the edge of trauma but never inside, it is a very gentle, safe and slow method of work. It is applied with thoughtful consideration before and during their application. 
Self-care techniques are body-oriented methods for regulation which the client will learn in a session and can take home to use. Techniques for feeling safe, body awareness, and reducing anxiety and stress.
Intention- "The super-conscious (subconscious) mind keeps the Intention going. When we can let go of Intention as a thought (mind) the subtle Intention can step in to orchestrast everything. Every biological rhythm in your body is part of the symphony of the whole cosmos" Deepak Chopra
Awareness Dialogue techniques are used to assess the biofield and energy around and in your body. Awareness Dialogue is within the scope of practice of an Advanced Integrative Energy Healing practitioner, it is not therapy or counselling. Awareness Dialogue is a therapeutic talk approach to support change, regeneration, and renewal of hope and purpose that promote individual choice, viewpoints, and healing potential. Using intention to facilitate self awareness and coherence to support whole body healing. Awareness Dialogue may or may not be used to facilitate healing.
Resource (using an image or quality) regulating (bilateral stimulation) is done as a stand-alone technique. With the aide of an experienced practitioner using foot or hand regulating to enhance resources that are already in us is a wonderful tool that reduces anxiety and depression, helps with sleep, increase creativity and performance, aides in healing, and decrease distress after a traumatic incident and difficult trauma processing work. Resource Regulating has been very helpful for many people. The practitioner will keep the work focused exclusively on the positive, healing resources, and does not allow a free-flow of processing. 

Meridians (Traditional Chinese Medicine tradition) and nadis (from the ayurvedic tradition) are subtle (non-physical) pathways in the body through which energy flows also known as QI/Prana. 

Wholistic Transformational Therapy (WTT)  "With roots in clinical psychology, Applied Kinesiology and Traditional Chinese Medicine, Meridian Based Therapies use cognition, affect and non-invasive treatment of the acupuncture meridians  (energy lines). This releases blocks and restores the free flow of life energy to heal our minds, hearts, bodies, and souls. The theory underlying this innovative approach offers explanations drawn from quantum physics, information-processing models, and leading-edge biological research. The resulting therapeutic effects are remarkably quick and fundamentally thorough". Stated by Dr. Daniel Benor who developed a treatment approach called WHEE (Wholistic Health Easily and Effectively) now renamed Wholistic transformational Therapy. A hybrid of EFT and EMDR. He believes that the cause of all negative emotion is a disruption in the bodies energy system. 'All emotional distress is ultimately caused, held in place, and re-triggered because of a disturbance in the subtle energy system. From this follows the possibility that distress can be resolved by restoring balance and harmony to the system. The gentleness, speed, and power of these procedures,  using "tapping" technique leave clients observably relieved and no longer stuck in their previously distressing, involuntary, out-of-order reaction patterns. There is no need to re-live the traumas of the past in order to transform the patterns they have created in our lives.'


Even though I do my best to describe these techniques with words, you really have to experience them to understand how they work. If you feel a curiosity I encourage you to contact us and ask questions, and or experience a session.  All of these practices are evolving, and constantly being enriched by the practitioners that use them.
