It is important to remember that some of the most profound and beneficial healing sessions may be the ones that appear to be the least dramatic. I tend to write more about the exciting breakthroughs my clients experience in their Healing Touch and Reiki treatments, yet often the peaceful, very still sessions create the most profound shifts in the lives of my clients.
“I felt SO much better after our session yesterday. It almost surprised me how much better I felt, because nothing huge or dramatic happened during the session. Remarkably, by the time I left yesterday, I felt completely rested despite getting one night’s adequate sleep across two instead, and I carried that forward all day. Some of the irritability and stress had lifted too, and I finally slept well (though still not enough) and woke up feeling rested this morning. Thank you! “

The Holidays are more enjoyable when you take care of yourself. Now is an excellent time to schedule a Healing Touch session to help you stay balanced, centered and grounded through the month ahead.
“I feel SO much better since our session Wednesday–thank you! It feels a lot like the cloud of depression or heaviness or whatever that landed as soon as I left the workshop has finally mostly lifted. It is a sensation of being physically lighter (and more energized, but in a good way) and just feeling more balance and less easily angry. I’m grateful to have this now–and grateful to have this too going into a week at home with my family.”

I would like to share a beautifully written description of my client’s healing session. It is a wonderful account of how surrendering to anxiety and befriending our emotions is what essentially heals us.
“I mostly feel the energy shifts as gentle changes in the vibration in my body (I love to envision the atom models we used in chemistry class just shifting a little in their movement…). Generally, it doesn’t get more intense until you get towards my upper body. I think the moment you felt the biggest energy shift (was it on my left you said?) was actually when I felt the most relaxed, like I could almost fall asleep. It feels almost as restful in those moments as if I had taken a long nap. And there was still this gentle white light I could feel but not see. I think I’ve said it before–but whenever you place your hands over my sternum, sort of the area where all of my anxiety and deep emotion live, it is this incredible feeling of being witnessed and not having to hold it all myself. It’s occasionally a little terrifying, since that space seems to open more during sessions (as I imagine it should) and so much floats in and out, but it’s always a calming sense to be seen too.
One interesting thing that happened too that I wanted to tell you and thought I could say better in writing–I think when you switched to the right arm, I had this moment where I realized my breathing had become like I was about to cry. Almost immediately after that, I had the tightening sensation of anxiety in my chest. I’ve never had anxiety rise during a session before. I initially wanted to just push it away and tell it that it had no place there, and then I realized that wasn’t really the point. So with some degree of struggle, I was able to sort of look at it and say something along the lines of “hi, anxiety. You’re a part of me, so it’s ok that you’re here…” and then I think I told it something along the lines of “let’s go see a sunrise together sometime” (where that came from I have no idea, but I think I was trying to befriend it?)–and then my mind cleared completely and the amount of energy in my body changed and became so much higher and stayed that way until we finished.”

I mentor other practitioners in healing my community.
I am also mentored by this same community.
Over the last few years, I have been supporting (coaching, mentoring, talking extensively on the phone) with other healing practitioners from all over the country who are dealing with challenging issues and questions concerning their healing practice. Often these healers have questions about working with clients and friends going through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. I have also helped many practitioners launch their healing business, sharing what marketing and organizing strategies have been working for me.
When I have questions about medical procedures my clients are going through, there are several nurses and a few doctors I have called from this same community who have walked me through the possibilities my client may be facing. This has been extremely helpful for me over the years. I have yoga teachers, hospital and oncology administrators, healers who are exceptionally sensitive to energy and just some very wise and experienced practitioners who I can call and ask anything I need to know or process. As I am writing this, I realize the hospital administrators I know have been a tremendous resource.
I am so supported by my healing community.
Below is an email I recently received from another energy practitioner who had emailed me with questions about her client with neuropathy (numbness in the hands and feet):
“I wanted to give you an update on the client with Neuropathy, since you were so helpful in telling me what has worked for you.
On his first visit, I did lots of clearing, as you recommended. I don’t usually do much clearing, so I made a point to do more. I also did LOTS of just holding his feet and hands – bringing warmth and healing through intention.
He called a few days later and said that he could feel his feet on the ground for the first time in a few years. He still had some pain, but was excited to have a difference and be able to “feel” with his feet. He had felt the heat of the sun on his feet.
He also had no headaches and no blurry vision (which he had complained about before). His hands, however, did not have any difference from the first session. They are extremely painful, and he wears wool gloves to warm and protect them.
I worked on him again yesterday, and haven’t heard if there is any change. I did lots of clearing on his hands and arms and entire body, so — I’ll keep you updated.”
We are all connected. We are all healing together.

Many clients book a healing before they have to give a speech, have surgery, take a test or go to the dentist. I can’t believe I have not written about how beneficial a Reiki and Healing Touch treatment is before a stressful event.
Here is part of an email I received from a client who had scheduled a healing with me the day before she had to go to the DMV for what she thought would be a driving test. She had not been able to drive her car for several months because of medical reasons and was now ready to regain this huge part of her independence. She was more than a little nervous.
I can drive again!!!!
The healing was great and I slept well. I don’t have to take the written test or the driving. Answered prayer😊
She was relaxed enough after the healing to get a good night’s sleep. Getting a good night’s sleep before a stressful event is the key to performing at our best. If she had to take the driving test, I bet she would have done just fine.

“I began to meet with Jeri before I received my second diagnosis of breast cancer. I must have intuited the tumor.
Jeri’s positive and clear energy helped me meet the most scary and trying moments that were to come. I met with her after my surgery and healed beautifully. My mindfulness yoga practice helped as well.
I began my series (4) of Chemotherapy infusions and would meet with Jeri right after. I had hardly any uncomfortable symptoms, slept well, had an appetite and have lost no weight. I will be going on Hormone Therapy and plan to continue to include Healing Touch as part of my Integrative Healing journey.”
Even though I have had a healing practice for over 16 years, I am still in awe of this work.
I know that someday energetic healing will be available in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals, and hospice centers to prevent disease and keep us in balance.
Every testimonial written and published awakens our collective consciousness to the power of Healing Touch and Reiki, and integrates energy work into our medical culture and daily reality.
Thank you for the testimonial, Susana.

“I recently came to Jeri for Healing Touch. I knew I had mental and emotional blocks that were holding me back in my business.
During the session I could feel releases of energy and toxins and I have never felt such surges of energy and I should mention I’ve been a massage therapist since 1989!
I had to go home and lay down afterwards, just to let my body and mind integrate this powerful experience.
The most amazing thing is…I’ve had at least 6 new client inquiries in the past two days and my energy has shifted in a noticeable way. Just this morning a close friend remarked that my face looked different from the last time she saw me, just a week prior. I’m still feeling the effects of this Healing Touch session and I want another!”

Energy work has been an incredible support for my clients when they are in the hospital. After years of healing in hospitals, I am still amazed how remarkably helpful Healing Touch and Reiki can be in these stressful situations.
A few months ago I worked with a young girl immediately after extensive back surgery. Her mother, who did not have much experience with energy work before this, was instantly on board with hands-on-healing. After one of the follow-up sessions, I showed her how she could clear her daughter’s energy field: I just demonstrated for her one very simple Healing Touch technique. Her daughter was very sensitive to the pain medications she was being given, and I knew even five minutes of this simple clearing technique throughout the day would help her immensely.
I want to say right away that I am not a Certified Healing Touch Instructor. I cannot “teach” Healing Touch, but I can “show” a mother a simple technique that may keep her daughter from getting nauseous. I also made it very clear that all healing is self-healing, and her daughter was the only one who could heal herself. I told the mom “just try the clearing and let go of the outcome.”
Here is part of the email she sent me weeks later:
“THANK YOU SO MUCH for all your work with my daughter and me!! Wow – talk about things just coming together at the right time!! I love your energy and spirit and that you were able to do those sessions was so awesome. Also that you took the time to show me how to try to work on her was amazing!! I’m not sure how well I did, but there were some super tough times during our hospital stay. It gave me something concrete to do to try and help my daughter. You were so kind to share that with me!!!!!!! You truly have an amazing gift!!!!
We all have this amazing gift of healing, right at our fingertips.
