A Client’s Intuition Promises Stress Reduction and Insight

March 30, 2013

 A couple of weeks ago I provided Healing Touch and Reiki to a new client that was referred to me through another client.  I feel much gratitude for the referral but also for that new client thadoesn’t know me well or at all placing their trust in me for the time we’re together.

Anyway, “Amy” was presenting physically with high stress, which included nausea, bloating with a distended stomach, heartburn and insomnia; emotionally she stated she “lacked joy” and mentally was always under pressure.  In fact she said she felt as if something “was sitting on my chest.”  (Warning bells went off in my head and I made certain that I referred her to her family doctor for a physical.) And sometimes Amy didn’t feel spiritually connected.  She was one overworked stressed out woman.

Effects of Healing Touch: Fact or Fiction?

February 4, 2013

Do you know the old cliché,  “All’s well that ends well?”  Weeelllll, here’s a story you’re bound to enjoy…..

A client with a high stress level came to see me who was told she needed back surgery.  She had herniated discs (Cervical 6 and 7, Lumbar 4,5) along her spine.  Her medical history includes a condition called kyphosis, an opposite curve in the lumbar section of her back, diabetes and in 2007 she underwent a cardiac stint operation for blockages.

“There’s no way I’m having my back operated on,” she told me.  “I’m going to do a combinations of complementary modalities. . acupuncture, Healing Touch and massage.”

Energy: Where Does it Come From?

October 15, 2012

If someone were to ask me a couple of years ago where the energy in the body comes from I would have said, “the food we eat, daily exercise, aerobic and anaerobic, and eight hours of sleep.”  Yet, sometimes we do everything right:  eat organic food, exercise and get a full night of sleep and still feel fatigued.  At other times we eat food on the run, can’t fit exercise into our day and sleep less than the recommended eight hours and feel great!  Why is this so?

Learn How Essential Oils Can Help Us Relax!

June 9, 2012

Dinah loves essential oils.  How do I know this?  It’s easy to tell she loves them by her continued sniffing of the carrying case I bring to an energy session.  My case is  filled with aromatic essential oils.  She likes to rub against the carrying case, bag, and even me when I’m working on her human, my client.  (I travel to the home.) In case you haven’t figured it out, Dinah is a dog.  .  .a very intuitive one at that.

Releasing Anxiety with Energy and Aromatherapy When Awaiting Diagnosis

May 18, 2011

Some individuals and their families live in a state of fear and anxiety when awaiting a diagnosis.  The person may be undergoing a series of tests to uncover the causes of discomfort, pain, and fatigue, among other symptoms.  Often these tests take months to be conclusive in a comprehensive way.  A client may ask, “What is wrong with me? When will I feel better? Do I have some disease?  If so, what is it?” Questions such as these may be causing constant fear and anxiety. Most clients desire to thrive through this uncertainty rather than just survive it.  Is this even possible?

Why Being Grounded is so Important to Stress Relief

November 17, 2010

I have provided Healing Touch to many clients with stress. It comes in the form of physical pain like headaches, muscle tension, back, neck and shoulder pain. Mentally and emotionally stress shows up in the inability to get a sound night’s sleep, anxiety, depression, fatigue, low immunity to colds and flu. Spiritually it comes forward as no connection to the spirit, other people, or oneself. (I wrote about the spiritual connection in my last newsletter). What I’m discovering in working with people with stress is that there is a pattern of not being grounded…. not feeling a connection to the earth or oneself. It seems people are being “pulled up” into their minds and can’t turn off the voice in their heads.

How Healing Touch Gives a Better Night’s Sleep

October 30, 2010

Recently a client came in for his second Healing Touch session. During the first session his goal was to reduce the stress he was feeling mentally and physically. He was experiencing some muscle tension in both his shoulders as well as some insomnia. His initial stress was a 6 on the pain scale where 10 is the highest pain or stress. After the session his stress reduced to a 2 and he said, “I feel so good!”

Learn How Healing Touch can Alleviate Stress

August 21, 2010

Many of us suffer from stress…from family issues, work and/or health issues. Stress can manifest itself in so many ways but the most I hear about from clients are: headaches, back aches, muscle tension, anxiety, insomnia, joint pain, exhaustion and depression. Healing Touch can address these issues. As each person is an individual the treatment plan by the practitioner addresses that client’s specific needs. Often I may have a client who thinks they feel, “pretty good,” although their mental stress is high or they have a slight back ache, let’s say. After the assessment and treatment using energy therapy they get up off the table and say, ” I feel so much better,” or “I’m so relaxed!” I then teach them self care techniques or give suggestions to help them live a healthier life. I’m not a doctor but have learned through life experiences and energy work some helpful practices. With the health care system in a state of flux it’s good to have complementary treatments to help you feel better. Some of my clients go from having a stress level of 10+ to a 0-1 in a Healing Touch session. Without stress good health can be maintained.  Copyright: Barbara J. Litchfield

Unleash The Power To Heal Yourself

July 20, 2010

When you are injured, ill or under stress, the natural flow of energy between the energy centers of your body can become congested. Since we are integrated beings, mind, body, emotion and spirit, the congested flow of energy negatively impacts both the way you feel and your body’s ability to heal.

Welcome to my website, I specialize in bringing relief to the lives of others. I use gentle, light or near-body touch to clear, balance, energize and support the human energy system to unleash your body’s own natural restorative powers.
