Earth Dragon Healing - now offering Touch for Health energy balances

I am happy to announce that in addition to Reiki and Sound healing, I am now offering Touch for Health energy balances.

What is Touch For Health?  As Matthew Thie, President, explains “Touch for Health is a system of balancing posture, attitude and life energy to relieve stress, aches and pains, feel and function better, be more effective, clarify and achieve your goals and enjoy your life!”  Click here to read more about Touch for Health  

Using the principles of Chinese medicine, Touch for Health is based on muscle testing, massage, energy work and postural alignment.  It includes techniques to reduce stress and pain, and to release negative emotions that may be holding you back from achieving your goals.

Stress & Pain

Every thought and emotion affects our body.  We all know the physical symptoms that intense emotions can create - muscle tension, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, etc.   It’s important to realize that even less intense, fleeting thoughts and emotions can be held in the body.    Everyday little life-things you may have forgotten, that your body remembers and accumulates.   If not released and rebalanced, these can continue to accumulate until your body responds with discomfort, and eventually pain and/or illness.  

The body works on a priority basis.  On it’s own priorities.  Think of it like layers of an onion.  This could mean, for example, that your goal is to relieve your low back pain, yet after a couple of balances your back still hurts.  But your sinuses are clearer, your mood is improved and you’re sleeping better.  Those were your body’s priorities.  Be patient - as you remove the layers your priority will be revealed and released.

Achieving your Goals

Touch for Health has a comprehensive protocol for identifying and achieving wellness oriented goals.  Working with the related meridian metaphors can get your own intuitive perceptions flowing, allowing you to creatively problem solve, move forward and reach your goals.  The body’s priority basis also applies to the goal setting process.  The related muscle testing is important to help keep you focused on your body’s priorities and improve your results.

Is Reiki a psychic abilitiy?

Is my Reiki practitioner psychic?

This is a good question and should be discussed at (or before) the first treatment.  Understandably, people can be confused about the differences between a Reiki treatment and a psychic reading.  The fact that some people who do Reiki are psychic makes the confusion all the more...well...confusing.

The short answer is "No".  Reiki is not a psychic ability.  There are so many websites dedicated to describing psychic abilities I won't spend much time explaining it here.  Basically there are 4 major types of psychic ability:  clairvoyance (clear seeing), clairsentience (clear feeling), clairaudience (clear hearing) and claircognizance (clear knowing).  While there are others, these are the main ways psychics receive their information.

By contrast, Reiki doesn't involve any of these "clairs".  Being attuned to Reiki connects the practitioner to healing energy which they then channel to the client during a treatment.  It's this healing energy that does all the good work.

If you have a Reiki treatment from a person who is psychic, they will pick up information during your treatment.   You should decide ahead of time whether you want them to share this information with you.

While Reiki is not a psychic ability, working with Reiki in a client's energy field with an open and honest intention to heal can sometimes (but not always) lead to spontaneous seeing/feeling/hearing/knowing things that are related to that particular healing session.   This doesn't mean the practitioner is suddenly psychic, it's just the interesting way that energy works.

Reiki is a fantastic way to relax, relieve stress and feel better.  Why not give it a try?

Reiki can help!

Most wellness models in our western culture teach that the body is the foundation for everything in life, that without a healthy body everything else suffers.  I believe this is backwards thinking.  Your body isn't the foundation of your health.  Your body is the physical manifestation of your life experiences.  When your life is out of balance your mind gets stressed.  And when your mind is stressed your body suffers.  The good news is that you can make changes in your life, at any time, that can positively affect your health. 

Unfortunately our medical system doesn't teach doctors, or allow them the time needed, to counsel their patients on the things that ultimately manifest in the physical body. So we need to take this responsibility on for ourselves.  How do we do that? 

Ask yourself what you think might be the root to your medical condition.  Think beyond the conventional answers like "I need to lose weight" or "I am depressed".  These may be true, but they're the symptoms.  You're looking for the underlying cause.  Dig deeper:  Is your marriage on the rocks?  Do you hate your job?  Are you lonely? 

Ask yourself "What does my body need so it can heal?"  Yes, maybe you need antibiotics or some professional counselling.  But maybe you need to finish that novel, hire a nanny, forgive an old injustice, or end a relationship.

This is tough stuff.  

Go easy on yourself.  

Reiki can help.

Pathways to Health

Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual Healing

According to The World Health Organization, "Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, not merely the absence of disease."  In keeping with this idea of health, working to create a sense of well-being on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels is what Reiki is all about.

Many people use the terms "healing" and "curing" interchangeably but it's important to understand they do not mean the same thing.  Curing means to completely eradicate an illness or disease in the physical body while healing can occur on many different levels and isn't  even necessarily linked to a physical condition.


What does it mean to heal on these different levels?
  1. Physical - healing on this level might mean eliminating an illness completely, or could simply mean alleviating the symptoms for a while , allowing time to address any underlying root causes that might be found on the emotional, mental or spiritual levels. 
  2. Emotional - emotional healing might result in calming fears or coming to acceptance of the effects of life-events such as illness, bereavement, job loss, etc.
  3. Mental - the deep state of relaxation assists with the mental release of negative thought patterns or attitudes that might be interfering with relationships or achieving life goals.
  4. Spiritual - healing from a spiritual level could result in a more compassionate attitude towards self, others and the natural world.  Or it might assist in releasing restrictive belief systems to support greater self-expression and creativity.

The Mind Heals with Laughter
