Healing Touch Certification: Is It Worth It?

Healing Touch Community in 2015

One of my Healing Touch friends recently asked me if I thought getting certified in Healing Touch was worth it. We have both been certified for many years. She is very sensitive to energy and knows she could have begun a hands-on-healing practice with just the first-level workshop.

In my experience, it is definitely worth it. I needed a thorough foundation to start offering energetic healing to people, especially since I had a business and was asking for money. I loved doing healing work, but did not trust it as I do now. My book, A Business Of Healing, describes my process of fully trusting the energy.

Becoming certified in Healing Touch Program is a huge commitment and usually takes at least two years. Just a few of the many requirements in the Program are: you have to meet regularly with a Healing Touch Mentor for at least a year, do a minimum of one hundred documented sessions, read a long list of books, write reports, receive healings from practitioners of other modalities and take all five levels of the workshops.

It was more work than Graduate School.

Another benefit to studying a modality like Healing Touch is that you learn the language. Language creates community, and the community has been an essential resource for me as a self-employed Healer.

All the techniques I learned in the Program are part of this language, a solid foundation to communicate with other practitioners. When discussing how to work with specific conditions, like Migraines or Anxiety, I can say, “I use a chakra connection rather than a mind-clearing if the first chakra is compromised because … ”

The Healing Touch community in the Bay Area is also incredibly knowledgeable. Many are nurses, doctors, shamans, hospital administrators, and healers of other modalities. I have called upon them many times to ask about chemo drugs, hospital procedures, or questions about specific conditions such as MRSA. I have seriously brilliant colleagues, all with different areas of expertise.

Also, I frequently refer other Healing Touch Practitioners. I have clients with Mothers going through Chemotherapy in Florida or friends undergoing surgery at UCLA. Even if I don’t know a practitioner personally, if that person is certified,  I know that they are committed to the healing work, grounded, and know the energy body. They have to if they made it through Certification. 🙂

You can check out Healing Touch Program and Healing Beyond Borders to learn about Healing Touch. These are two separate organizations. In the Bay Area, our two teachers are Laurie Ratto of the Healing Touch Program and Anne Secklinger of Healing Beyond Borders.

I ended the conversation with my Healing Touch friend by commenting, “We would not even know each other if we had not studied Healing Touch.”

Distance Healing For Covid

Did you test positive for covid? Are you now in isolation?

Now is a good time to book a distance healing. You can schedule a zoom session, or like most of my clients, talk on the phone before the healing and then connect after the session to help integrate your experience.

Some clients fall into a restorative sleep after a distance healing, so sometimes I speak with them several hours after the session or the next day.

Energy healing is safe, accessible, and so supportive physically, emotionally, and mentally. I often receive a healing from another practitioner on my own healing table, and I am still amazed at how practical and effective distance sessions are.

White Frosted Crystal Singing Bowls

For the last nine months or so, I have been playing crystal singing bowls during my morning meditation. The classic white frosted singing bowls. These bowls have been instrumental in helping me stay grounded, especially between clients and before healing sessions.

I have also been watching all the youtube videos I can find, reading sound healing blogs, and learning everything I can about vibration, sound, and healing.

After extensive research on sound healers, I found a workshop with someone who appeared to resonate as I do with the old-school frosted white bowls. I took Melissa Felsenstein’s Level One Online Sound Healing training last weekend. You can check out her website here: https://www.innersoundsmeditation.com/melissa-felsenstein

I am SO glad I took this workshop. It was amazing. I loved every minute. We learned about the science of sound, deep listening,  sequencing for the nervous system, and the anatomy of a sound bath. I love Melissa’s practical, playful and intuitive approach. Her partner Jason Hee did the technical support, and the sound was excellent.

I have been so inspired, and my personal use of the bowls has deepened, as well as my ability to stay grounded. In this crazy world now, staying grounded is a huge deal.

I am so busy with my healing business, so I don’t see myself running out to do sound baths. That said, playing the bowls has shifted my healing space; I sense so much more in my client sessions. I have been ‘feeling’ sounds in my client’s body for a long time now, and many healings feel like my client is tuning (coming into harmony) underneath my hands. I am becoming aware of this even more during my healings after the workshop – it’s like something new has opened up. It is crazy. Wonderfully crazy.

Thank you, Milissa and Jason!

Reiki Supports All Stages Of Your Healing Journey

On social media, I recently read that Reiki treatments alone are not sufficient to heal all aspects of your life.

I might agree with that on certain levels, yet Reiki and energy treatments can definitely support you throughout the whole of your healing journey.

Whether you are healing from a cancer diagnosis, are going through a round of insomnia, or at a point in your life where you can address old childhood trauma,  Self-Reiki is always there for you. All you have to do is put your hands on your heart and let the energy comfort, rebalance, and relax you. This peace is so powerful during times of great transformation and expansion. Reiki healing is abundant and always accessible.

In my healing practice, I have many clients who are working with Psychotherapists, Chiropractors,  Acupuncturists,  Functional Medicine Doctors, and Family Marriage Counselors. Reiki sessions help these clients integrate and embody the shifts from all their healing sessions. Lately, this has been especially true – and productive – for people doing Ayahuasca and Plant Medicine Ceremonies.

Reiki treatments also gently access old thoughts and beliefs that they can take back to process with their therapist.

Reiki supports all stages of your healing journey

Tara Brach: Facing Fear In A Traumatized World

I find this video calming.

Tara names many of the things we are all feeling. She states that the essence of trauma is feeling cut off. In times of great fear we energetically shut down and that disconnects us from our soul, spirit, and our wholeness. If we don’t deepen our attention, life is easily hijacked by fear.

I have listened to this video many times and I receive deeper insights each time.

Sound Healing by Mei-lan Maurits

Mei-lan Maurits’s Youtube videos bring me to a state of calm, presence – and even joy – every time I listen. I hope you enjoy her music as much as I do.

From her website:

These sounds and tones carry the vibration of timeless wisdom, and the frequencies span from the ancient to the angelic. My sacred work is bridging these higher frequencies into our physical realm so that you remember the wisdom and essence of your soul. This is how we bring heaven to earth.

Healing Testimonial

“Jeri – Thank you for being the person to escort me to and through my first healing and my second as well. Your grounded and non-egoic holding of space and faith in my inherent power to heal made a big difference and taught me that I have capacities that I have only begun to tap. But even so – I’m already there and there is nowhere to get.”

Post Pandemic Hack: Making the Healing Space Safer With Air Filters

PECO technology by Molekule—Destroys Covid-19 virus & more.

There are two Molekule air filters in my healing space. In the last few months, the FDA has approved my Molekule Air Mini & Mini+ air filters for medical use in destroying viruses & bacteria – including Covid-19.

If you are interested in getting a small air filter I recommend the Mini+ over the Mini. The Mini+ turns up by itself when there is something in the air that needs filtering. I don’t have to worry about wasting energy when the air clears.

I took both of these units on my retreat last month and the inside of our air meditation space and the sleeping area never smelled like smoke. There were several days when there was a  LOT of smoke.

Since I have had these filters I have never had to cancel a client due to smoke and fires around my office in Oakland again.  I love this. My healing space will always be safe.
