Healing Touch at Stanford Hospital

A short video on how Healing Touch is supporting woman with breast cancer at Stanford Hospital in Palo Alto.

Healing Partners is mentioned in this clip, a community-based program that pairs women diagnosed with breast cancer with Healing Touch Volunteers.

It’s so inspiring to see people with cancer receiving energetic support in a hospital setting. Healing Touch really makes a difference.

Healing Touch For Asthma

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.

About This Blog

DSC_1057I have been writing this blog for over a year and a half, so I thought it might be time to write this mission statement. This also meant I had to reexamine and clarify my intentions as a healer. Sometimes the shortest posts take the longest to write.

ABOUT THIS BLOG:
This blog is about my energetic healing practice. My intention in my healing practice is to validate and develop the intuitive healing abilities in each person I work with and assist him or her into coming into balance physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. I know that all healing is self-healing and my goal is to create a safe and inspiring place where all possibilities exist.

.
The modalities I write about in this blog are: Healing Touch, Reiki and Clarity Breathwork. I am also a massage therapist and roughly half my healing practice is massage based.

.
In my blog, I also share about my experience of having a healing business at this moment in our modern culture and just how extraordinary and incredibly ordinary it is to work in altered states of consciousness and sacred space on a daily basis.

.
Healing is a mystery. The more I learn about healing, more I realize my focus as a healer is not about intellectually understanding what healing is, but to create, ground and hold the space for this mystery to happen for my clients.

.
Lastly, my intention as the author of this blog is to communicate how this healing space can support each of us individually and as a community by encouraging the use of energetic healing – especially the modality Healing Touch and Reiki – in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, hospitals and hospice to support wellness, prevent disease and keep us in balance.

More About Healing Touch and Emotional Release

Deep Peace

There is something very profound that happens emotionally when deep relaxation occurs in a healing session. I don’t fully understand it, yet I watch it happen daily in my practice and see how much my clients benefit from it.

My clients usually come for a Healing Touch session for relief of physical pain. Yet in the last few months, I have had clients who came to specifically address emotional issues that they wanted to release and resolve.

 …

Healing Touch is one of the most subtle healing modalities there is and that includes gentle emotional balancing and release. A Healing Touch session is safe, non-invasive and very comforting for anyone in a very fragile and vulnerable state.

Emotional release in my Healing Touch sessions is most often quite subtle. Most Healing Touch sessions are immediately experienced by my clients as relaxing and extremely peaceful. Such a deep state of relaxation is a different state of consciousness, or several states of consciousness that have profound healing effects on the mind, body and spirit.

While supporting clients through a surgery or other physical condition with a series of healings, many clients have appeared to resolve long-term emotional issues. They report back after the session, sometimes emailing months (even years!) later that issues that once obsessed or triggered them just don’t seem that important anymore. This emotional resolution had not been my focus while I was working with them;  As an energetic healer my goal was to balance their energy field so they could self-heal. Obviously a balanced energy field can facilitate even deeper healing and emotional release.

The more I learn about healing, the more I find there is to understand. Healing continues to be a mystery to me. I hold space for this mystery daily with complete trust that what ever needs to happen will happen and that it is indeed all good.

A Year Of Transformation

c. Jeri Lawson 2013 All Rights ReservedI will always think of 2012 as my year of transformation.

One obvious and external change was moving my healing space outside my home after 18 years of business. Getting settled in the new space was a huge and mostly graceful transition energetically, emotionally and financially. I love “going” to work and I love “going” home. This move has definitely brought more clarity to many aspects of my life.

Yet the internal shifts of 2012 feel even more significant. I experience the world and my work as healer very differently now. My previous focus as an energetic practitioner was to understand everything I could about healing, so I could help my clients by being the best healer I possibly could be.

Yet the more I kept learning about energetic healing, the less I realized I actually knew about how healing works. My desire to understand the mystery of healing is now a clear intention to hold space for the mystery of healing to happen. A very subtle, yet very profound shift.

In the last few months of 2012 this shift has set the stage for some pretty incredible sessions. Some of these sessions were quite dramatic and others appeared much more subtle, yet they created deep and profound healing for my clients. There is so much to share in this new wonderful year of 2013!

Healing Touch Supports Client Going Through Chemotherapy and Radiation

This week’s post is a testimonial from one of my recent clients.

“Jeri was instrumental in helping me get through chemo and radiation when I was undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Her gentle healing touch helped me enormously with the side effects of treatment, and consequently I was able to carry on with almost all of my regular activities, including chasing around my three young children! I visited Jeri the evening after each chemo session, and once a week during my daily radiation. I felt exponentially better immediately after each session, and I truly believe that my successful completion of treatment was due in large part to Jeri’s help.”
