Hello and welcome! I have been studying and practicing energy therapy for over ten years. My practice, Great Heron Healing Arts, is located in Iowa City, Iowa.
Energy therapy (often called energy healing or energy work) is a gentle, holistic approach to health and well-being through the use of healing touch. Energy therapy can effectively treat physical issues, such as chronic pain, as well as emotional and psychological concerns, such as anxiety or depression. Energy therapy is also highly beneficial for clients who are recovering from grief, trauma or addiction.
In the context of energy therapy, energy is defined as the life-force energy that infuses all beings. Acupuncturists call this energy chi and yoga therapists refer to it as prana. This energy is present in all of us. As an energy therapist, I utilize both healing touch and sound to help clients balance and restore this vital energy.
In my practice, I specialize in the treatment of trauma and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Over the years, I have found energy therapy to be a highly effective, complementary treatment to the lingering and often debilitating effects of trauma and PTSD.
Please note that while I specialize in the treatment of trauma and PTSD, I also welcome and work with clients seeking support with any issue in their lives. Whatever stress or challenge you face—physical, psychological, emotional, or even spiritual—energy therapy can help. If you are wondering if energy therapy is right for you, I encourage you to contact me for more information.
