Energy Work

Energy work promotes relaxation and often provides new insights and solutions for day-to-day situations. Energy healing can help one balance emotions and feel more grounded and less affected by stressful life events. Energy balancing is at the foundation from which other healing can occur and can still experience inner peace even when life is swirling around them. Balanced energy and emotions can help you handle stress, enjoy life, and experience healthier relationships. Some clients respond with improved physical health once we have addressed emotional health first.

Energy Work: Universal Life Energy

Energy work is light touch that gently balances the chakra system or meridian system (in Eastern Medicine) to promote self-healing. The energetic system of the body consists of main centers along the body’s midline that correspond to specific organs, glands, and body functions.

Energy work encourages relaxation, restful sleep and a sense of well-being. Clients usually report reduced pain, stress and more meaningful relationships at work and in their personal life. Energy work is safe and effective for all ages and levels of health. It is gentle enough for pregnant women and children, and is a useful tool to help reduce discomfort or complications occurring with pregnancy, childbirth, and lactation.

During an energy work session you lie comfortably on a massage table fully clothed; no lotions are used although at times the practitioner may suggest an essential oil. Soft lighting and soothing music (if desired) create a tranquil and peaceful environment. You receive energy through the practitioner’s hands, with little or no pressure used. Your body, in its own wisdom, takes in enough energy to dissolve blockages and create balance in the chakra centers. Energy work creates balance on the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual levels. Clients often report feeling a warm or tingling experience, and may feel strong emotions during or after the session. Your practitioner will help you better understand any sensations or insights.

Chinese Theory on Emotional health

Traditional Chinese medicine is based on the belief that all physical imbalances and symptoms have corresponding emotional imbalances. For thousands of years traditional Chinese medicine healers have addressed emotional health with their patients just as they address physical symptoms. Acupuncturists at Isthmus will also address emotional correspondences to physical symptoms during your regular acupuncture sessions.

Emotional imbalances and their affected organs

  • Grief and sorrow – lungs and large intestine
  • Anxiety – heart and small intestine
  • Worry and over thinking – spleen, pancreas and stomach
  • Anger, frustration and irritability – liver and gallbladder
  • Depression and fear – kidney and bladder


What is Reiki? Reiki is a healing modality based on the chakra energy system and is defined as “spiritually guided life force energy.” Everything that exists in the universe is energy and on the quantum level this energy is vibrating at different levels. Reiki heals on this quantum level. The Reiki energy interacts with every system of the body: digestive, nervous, endocrine, adrenals, fascia, organs, bones, and tissues; and this interaction promotes not only physical healing but also emotional, mental, and spiritual healing.

A Reiki session helps you to let go of anything no longer serving you. Maybe that is anxiety, past trauma, toxic people or situations, physical ailments, diseases and conditions, or karmic patterns. Once these are released from your energy system through different techniques, the Reiki energy balances and harmonizes the chakras. This balance will bring more stability and grounding to your life and get you back to the essence of yourself.

Reiki is a powerful tool to help heal from traumatic life events such as sexual or physical abuse. It helps clients to feel more empowered and supported to establish healthy boundaries. Reiki sessions done on a regular basis also help to proactively manage symptoms such as menopausal hot flashes and mood swings as well as anxiety and stress.
