A is for Accessories
Accessory: a thing of secondary or subordinate importance : an object or device not essential in itself but adding to the beauty, convenience, or effectiveness of something else
In the energy healing field there are many accessories a practitioner can use to enhance the client's experience. Most practitioners provide relaxing music and low level lighting as these are obvious ways to help the client relax. Incense is another popular accessory which when chosen wisely can fill the room with a calming scent. Some practitioners decorate their healing room with stones, crystals, statuary and tapestries. Candles are often present. Others create a sacred space by setting up an alter to display a collection of personal mementos.
There is nothing wrong with using an accessory or two, though some practitioners can get a little carried away. And too much of a good thing is... well...
just too much.
Energy healing is natural. It uses the body's subtle energy field and the universal energy that's all around us. Accessories, while they may enhance the perception of the healing experience, do not necessarily enhance the actual healing outcome. Energy healing is portable and effective whenever and wherever it is used. On the side of the road at the scene of an accident. In a doctor's waiting room. At a restaurant, or in a movie theatre. All of these are perfectly acceptable places to receive energy healing. No special accessories are required.
