Energy Healing/Remote Healing

Remote or Local Qigong Healing

Energy Healing healing sessions are an incredibly powerful treatment option.  Now, not only is modern science validating this ancient form of healing, but after almost 35 years of practicing energy medicine and remote healing, Devatara is seeing ever greater  demand and ever greater variety of benefits from this form of treatment.

Energy healing is particularly effective for acute and severe health problems, such as acute or intractable pain, chronic or acute infection, tumors, cysts and many chronic disorders.

 

For people who are not able to be treated on-site at our clinic, remote energy treatments are a very potent option. They can be just as effective and sometimes even more effective than in-clinic treatments. This is because the duration of the focused treatment time is longer than in clinical treatments, which gives the patient time to reach a deeper and longer-lasting state of relaxation. Within this time, the body’s physiology has more time to adjust and regulate itself. This duration allows for a state of balance and homeostasis to set in and become more established. Hence, patients often experience unusually profound realizations,  relaxation and a great “let-go” as the result of these treatments.
