Top Questions

What is Energy Healing?

All objects and living creatures have an energy flow. The physical body's energy can have blocks from traumas, emotions, toxins and these collect and stagnate in specific energy centers, known as Chakras.  The energy healing flows from the Universe to the Energy Healer's hands to the client energy centers. 


Energy Healing aligns body-mind-spirit and:

- expands the mind with clarity, inner guidance and wisdom

- restores the body's balance, detoxing and supporting the immune system

- connects our spirit, the healing opens the channels to deepen faith and connect to your higher self 

- provides MANY other benefits based on our needs.

How many sessions are needed to see results?   

Every session, including the first will provide much needed support and healing, as listed above.

How should I prepare for my first treatment?

Energy work works best when properly hydrated, drinking water before and after the treatment flushes toxins. Writing questions and specific intentions before your Energy session is also helpful, and we can discuss before the session.  

What should I expect from my first session of Energy Healing?

Energy healing has a relaxing effect.  The energy freely flows and chakra points are restored and rebalanced.  Their is a sense of renewal and being more in touch with your body.  Clients may feel more intuitive, open to giving and receiving love, an easier time to speak and share their truth, a new zeal to be creative, exude more confidence and trust others and self, easier connection to their high self and spirituality,  and will build more harmonious relationships.  In addition to clients feedback, I personally have felt all of these changes as well.

Can I pair Energy healing with other services offered?

I highly recommend adding energy healing to any other services we offer.  If an additional energy session is added, it will be prorated based on time desired.  This clearing will enhance the sessions effectiveness.

What is included in Functional Personal Training?

Bending, twisting, lifting, loading, pushing, pulling, squatting and hauling are all parts to functional training. The focus is to improve the body as a whole unit, working multiple muscle groups, which leads to better mobility for easier and safer movements. Our body demands the best self care even more, with a hectic schedule.  I will help with ideas, motivation, goal setting, fun fitness based on current level of  your individual fitness, interests and health.

What is a Death Doula's role in the end of life process?

Death Doulas help comfort with the unknown most people feel from grief and loss.  Death Doula assistance varies, but I am available for End-Of-Life patients bedside to perform non-medical assistance:  Energy Healing, compassionate active listening, legacy projects, and vigil requests.  We all have varied levels of acceptance of dying and Death Doulas are trained to help with grief, resource information, compassion and emotional support.  Please reach out if you have questions or need more information.  

This website link for INELDA gives insight on this type of Doula work and the wonderful work they do.

I do assist non medically with terminal and chronically ill patients as a hospice volunteer.  Death doula training through INELDA is instrumental knowledge to have for these patients.  I find that giving comfort brings so much peace to the patient and the caregivers.  Energy healing is part of the services as well, allowing the client to release blockages and past highly charged emotions.

If you have a calling to be a hospice volunteer and in the Raleigh area, please reach out to Transitions Lifecare.
