Healing In the Hospital

Window at John Muir Hospital

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.

Healing Touch And Detox

“At Martha’s Healing House”

I have found in my personal healing practice that one of the many benefits of Healing Touch is the release of toxins from the physical body.

I know this may sound crazy to anyone not familiar with energy work, but over the years my clients have consistently reported the physical symptoms of toxins in the body, such as fatigue from medications, headaches from allergies and tightness in the chest from environmental pollution, fall away after a healing. Some people have said they can actually feel chemical exposure or old medication leaving their body during a session.

One man who had been working with toxic cleaners a few days before his healing, reported that after his session his urine was discolored for several days and then he felt amazingly better.

Similarly, clients who have recently been under anesthesia seem to release residual drugs still in their body – especially from chemotherapy. In my last post I wrote about a client who was experiencing withdrawal after going off the pain medication from his surgery. The energy work was very helpful in getting him through the ordeal.

I have worked with two clients who were able to release toxins they traced back to specific environmental events from their childhood. It took a series of sessions in each case, but after the energy work, they feel much stronger and healthier. Clients who relax and release tight muscles during a Healing Touch session often tell me the next day their bodies are sore, as though they have experienced a deep tissue massage.

Most remarkably, a client and I both smelled cigarette smoke during her Healing Touch session, even though the woman had stopped smoking years before.

If you are feeling sluggish, fatigued or you seem to get every cold that comes along, think about trying Healing Touch. Energy work is also a wonderful support when making dietary changes or doing a cleanse or fast. Healing Touch helps the physical body release and return to its natural state of health and equanimity.

Energy work improves quality of life.

Healing Touch, Reiki and Addiction

Several years ago I supported a client through a major surgery with Healing Touch and Reiki.

Afterwards he became addicted to his medications and, with his doctor’s approval, went off Oxycodone cold turkey. His withdrawal symptoms were severe. Very severe. I had never worked energetically with addiction before, and even I was amazed at how the energy work eased his symptoms.

The first session gave him 4 hours of relief and the second treatment gave him 9 hours of peace. After it was all over, my client said he may not have made it through the ordeal without the energy work.

When I write about specific work with a client, I always send it to him or her before publishing for permission and approval. I don’t want anyone to suddenly find an account of their healing journey online at some odd moment of the day – even if the work happened years before and I don’t use their names.

 

This is what my client wrote back:

“Wow Jeri, this post is such a time capsule. I had forgotten (or completely blocked out) that we’d done energy work associated with my addiction to the meds. In my memory it was just the surgery, but I suppose a huge feature were the meds.  It’s incredible how little of that entire event I even remember.

The only thing I would add to your post is simply that — yes in fact there was a time that somehow you were the ONLY source of relief. I remember at least that very distinctly as being relief from crazy radiant pain both immediately after surgery and months later.  I remember being frustrated by a caravan of remedies — massage,  hundreds of hot baths,  steam, acupuncture, rolfing, you name it.  Sounds like infomercial testimonial, but you remember… the energy work was kind of a miracle.”

Healing: A Process of Learning To Hear Your Body’s Signals

I would like to thank my client for taking the time to write this testimonial. She knows who she is.

“When I first started seeing Jeri for Healing Touch the whole process was a mystery to me. As far as I was concerned Jeri’s hands just magically made me feel better and more relaxed. Over the years–and with the benefit of taking a Healing Touch introductory class–I came to understand that I could be a healing force for myself. Of course, nobody does it better than Jeri and I still see her for “tune ups”. But now I now can tell when my energy is getting blocked or stuck and I can do a chakra connection on myself to make sure that energy is flowing. I even do a little healing touch on my partner who doesn’t know what it is but he knows it makes him feel relaxed and fall asleep! I am so grateful to Jeri not only for her healing but also I helping me learn to listen to my own body’s signals.”

Healing and Opening To Intuitive Abilities

Sometimes receiving a series of energy sessions can help you become more aware of your own intuitive abilities. Over the years, many of my clients have opened up to a whole new way of being in the world after rebalancing their energy system. Highly intuitive people often realize the depth of their natural gifts only after more conventional structures and life strategies have collapsed.

A collapse can be brutal in the moment it occurs and is often experienced as a failure. Yet, an event that may have been viewed as a “breakdown” may come to be recognized as a “breakthrough”. A crisis is that point in your life when you finally had to create a more suitable path that allows you to be who really are.

Below is a testimony from a client who realized she had already started navigating through the world using her intuition, as well as her logical mind. This really helped her more clearly perceive her own inner guidance and trust her own decisions:

 “Jeri has been an amazing resource for me. She has help me to find my intuitive self as well as understand my body and mind connection. Having knowledge about this has helped me discover possible new paths in my life in order to live in a more divergent manner. In addition, she has helped reduce my anxiety over the last six months which had been plaguing me for over a year. Thank you Jeri!!!”

Healing Touch and Anxiety

IMG_7443

In the last half of 2014, many of my new clients came to try Healing Touch because they were suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and/or trauma. I have to admit, even I was surprised at how effective Healing Touch has been for these clients.

Here is a testimony from a man who had been experiencing debilitating anxiety for years:

“I was suffering from extreme anxiety and insomnia when a friend referred me to Jeri.  From the very first session I left feeling free from anxiety for the first time in many months. Jeri told me that the anxiety might come back, but that with each session I wold experience longer periods of feeling calm and anxiety-free. She was absolutely correct. After four sessions the bouts of anxiety became so infrequent that I was able to transition to seeing Jeri every month or so for a “tune up”. I am also able to sleep again. Going to Jeri was a life changing experience for me and words can’t begin to express how grateful I am to her and Healing Touch.”

There are many sessions in which I sense my client has healed themselves in the first 5 minutes. Being able to HOLD the new level of consciousness, vibration, or groundedness and stay healed becomes the focus of these energetic sessions.

I have had clients that have only needed one Healing Touch session, but more often, it takes a short series of sessions. Each one builds on the next to assist my client in reaching their new level of alignment and vibration. Check out an older post I wrote: A Healing Pattern.

We have an amazing and profound capacity to heal ourselves physically, mentally and emotionally when we come into energetic alignment. We really do.

I see it happen every day.

Reiki, Hospice and Supporting the Caregiver

Silvia with her son Alessandro, and husband Jim

I was very honored to assist Silvia while she held a beautiful space of love and positive energy for her husband’s transition. Thank you Silvia, for taking the time to write such a generous testimonial.

“I first began working with Jeri with Reiki distant healing during my husband’s last illness. She did a distance healing right after our initial phone conversation.

A few days later she came to our house while we were both resting and gave my husband Reiki in the hospital bed. Jeri then gave me Reiki on our marriage bed which was side by side with the hospital bed.

I was exhausted from caring for my husband and from trying to help him heal through Ayurveda and other holistic methods. The Ayurveda specialist recommended Jeri, and in a way, Jeri saved my life, and helped my husband’s passing be much more spiritual and balanced.

I fell asleep after the Reiki, and my husband slept for several hours and then woke and ate well, and spoke, and seemed much calmer. Sleeping next to him, both of us holding hands as we slept after the Reiki, I ‘talked’ to my husband’s spirit and was much more calm, because I had explained to him that he could choose to go or to stay and heal, but that he need take no baggage if he went…

I was feeling tortured by the inability of the medical establishment and of my husband’s family to accept any type of alternative healing… or the possibility of a miracle. I did not even feel that I was competent to give Reiki, although I am a Reiki Level 2 Practitioner. Jeri assured me that I could do no harm, and after her encouragement I gave him Reiki before any medication or any treatment.

My husband passed at 2:08 PM on July 4th. After his cremation, my third son and I both had Reiki with Jeri. Jeri and I worked together on my son at my request, and it was a powerful and healing session. Jeri gave me the confidence and the loving care that we both needed… My son was suffering from post-traumatic stress after a bad accident, and the Reiki allowed him to fly back home in much better health and spirits…

I am very grateful to Jeri because she is a loving and intuitive healer who brings all the power of her love and intent to the table.”

Healing Touch For Asthma

Mark Gagne
Mark Gagne
Writer and Event Manager

I would like to thank Mark for taking the time to write this testimonial about his Healing Touch session. It is amazing how much I have learned from what my clients have written me.

This testimonial is a good example of how gentle and easy emotional release can be.

“I have had four healing touch sessions with Jeri, the latest for my asthma. The great thing about Jeri’s brilliant work is that her intuitive healing abilities often uncover root causes of health issues, such as painful loss, as well as removing ailments that are not foremost in her client’s mind.

In my case, I work on my feet as an Event Manager for many hours at a time, and Jeri’s healing touch session this week, though focused on my respiratory health, ended up releasing a lot of pain I’ve had in my knees and feet.  After Jeri finished, she commented to me that she was drawn  to work with my legs and feet for much of the session. I then relayed an old knee injury to her from some 30 years ago that I have come to take for granted. Since that healing, I’ve worked a few times and my knees felt lighter and more relaxed.

Jeri’s skill at transporting me through her gentle healing touch work is unmatched. I leave each session feeling energized, renewed and refocused. My entire body always feels completely relaxed, and my mind feels lighter and more alert. As for my asthma, since my session, I haven’t been wheezing and have only used my inhaler a couple times all week, which is considerably less than usual.

I hadn’t worked with Jeri for over two years due to scheduling and work logistics on my end, and had undergone a series of traumatic events in my life including three deaths in my immediate family as well as an extremely stressful legal battle. Although I sought Jeri’s help specifically for my asthma, the first sensation I felt during our session was an immense feeling of heavy emotional release, followed by warm memories of my sister, who has been gone for two years. I wasn’t thinking about her or feeling consciously bereft lately, but during this healing touch session, I knew that something wonderful had shifted, and I feel very blessed for it. I also experienced similar releases of heavy, negative energy surrounding the recent passing of both my parents. These were events that I thought I had worked through, but Jeri’s work and the perpetual lightness I feel now tell I wasn’t yet finished.

Thank you, Jeri!”

One Healing Touch Session Makes a Difference After Ten Years of Migraines

Chris de Asis
Chris de Asis

This is a Healing Touch testimonial from the current President of the BNI Chapter A’s Referral Team. I belonged to this group for two years to build my business as a Healing Touch Practitioner. This was a very smart move for my business and I met some really great people.

Each BNI chapter allows one person per occupation to join and all members must be approved via an application process. BNI’s philosophy is “Givers Gain” and all members are expected to build relationships between each other so they can give and receive referrals. I still refer the friends I met there and use their services.

When I joined the group I realized immediately most people there had no idea what an energetic healer did. I had to learn how to quickly and efficiently communicate how beneficial energetic healing can be to earn the trust of my chapter.

I gave each member one free healing session with me. Below is a testimonial by Chris de Asis. Chris had told me right after her session she had enjoyed her healing, but I had no idea how much it had helped her migraines until she sent me this:

“I went to Jeri about 2 years ago for a free healing session and it has changed the way I see alternative medicine. I have had these migraines that are very debilitating for about 10 years. My medical doctor told me that it has something to do with my temporomandibular joint.  In any case, nothing was working to permanently remove my migraines. I was too scared to take the prescribed medicine my doctor gave me because one of the side effects that promotes heart palpitations and increased heart beats. Since I come from a family with a long line of heart disease, I was very skeptical in taking the medication to say the least.
Well, after my healing I felt better the next day and my migraines now do not come as often and they are not as painful. I appreciate the healing session that Jeri gave me and have referred a client to her as well.  She is a very knowledgeable person for people going through cancer and I know through first hand experience that what she does actually works and heals your body.  Thanks Jeri, for taking care of my migraines.

Clarity Breathwork and Migraines

Image 1
Laurie Ann Lepoff

Laurie Ann Lepoff, a Dance Teacher in Oakland, California, did a series of ten Clarity Breathwork sessions with me to heal her migraines in 2010. In the third session she actually arrived in the early stages of a migraine and released it during the breathe! Click here for the full testimonial. Laurie recently sent me this update and I thought I would share it with you:

“Last month I had tickets to the runway show at the Crucible, a very noisy busy flashy event. I woke up with a really bad migraine and thought maybe I’d just do the dinner beforehand with my friends and skip the show, but the migraine got so bad I couldn’t even do that. So finally I did the breathing (with about 2 hours to spare before my friends showed up to take me to dinner because I kept putting it off). Not only did the migraine disappear but I enjoyed the whole show with 2 hours of blaring music and flashing lights (major migraine triggers on any day) and it didn’t come back!”
