HYPNOSIS – Hypnosis is a temporary altered state of consciousness which results in an increased receptiveness and response to suggestion, and a state of heightened relaxation. One may become so focused that he/she experiences events stored in long-term memory as if they were happening in present time.

HYPNOTHERAPIST -In the hypnotic state, with the facilitation of a clinically trained hypnotherapist, a client can resolve long-standing issues. He/she can regress to actually re-experience early traumas, inform the naïve inner child of the truth, install resource states for continued healing, and complete unresolved developmental tasks by establishing an internal loving nurturing parent.

The purpose of hypnosis as a therapeutic technique is to help you understand and gain more control over your behavior, emotions, and physical well-being. (The Mayo Clinic, December 2003)

Hypnotherapy is now commomly and effectively used in the following areas:

  • PTSD and trauma resolution (rape, physical and emotional abuse)
  • Anxiety and stress management
  • Sports and athletic performance
  • Smoking cessation
  • Depression
  • Weight release
  • Pain management
  • Sexual dysfunctions

Eden Energy Medicine

Eden Energy Medicine is both a complement to other approaches to medical care and a complete system for self-care and self-help.

Benefits include:

  • Optimal health
  • Increased vitality
  • Greater happiness

Energy medicine, developed by Donna Eden during the course of her thirty-years of working directly with clients, recognizes energy as a vital, living, moving force that is at the foundation of our well-being. In energy medicine, you heal the body by activating its natural healing energies and also by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance. Energy medicine can be self-applied or administered by a trained practitioner. It can address physical illness, emotional or mental disorders, and is also used to promote high-level wellness, peak performance, and joyful living.

You heal the body by activating its natural healing energies; you also heal the body by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance.

By learning simple energy techniques to keep your energies balanced and humming, you can improve your health, sharpen your mind, and increase your joy and vitality.

To accomplish this goal, energy medicine utilizes techniques from healing traditions such as acupuncture, yoga, kinesiology, and qi gong. Flow, balance, and harmony can be non-invasively restored and maintained within an energy system by tapping, massaging, pinching, twisting, or connecting specific energy points (acupoints) on the skin; by tracing or swirling the hand over the skin along specific energy pathways; through exercises or postures designed for specific energetic effects; by focused use of the mind to move specific energies; and/or by surrounding an area with healing energies (one person’s energies impacts another’s).

Use energy medicine to treat illness and relieve pain; stop the onset of illness as soon as it begins, stimulate immune function, relieve headaches, release stress, improve memory, enhance digestion, relieve arthritis, neck, shoulder, and low back pain, and cope with electromagnetic pollution.


There are TWO LEVELS where energy medicine might make a difference with a health condition:

THE FIRST has to do with getting your body’s energies into a good flow, harmony, and balance. While not focusing on your health issue directly, this can create within your body an energetic environment that supports your overall health, vitality, and healing.

  • This is the place to start, even if you are also taking additional steps, such as assessing and working with specific vulnerabilities in your energy system or consulting with an energy medicine specialist. Unlike treatments that offer pills or surgery, energy medicine focuses on the entire body as a system. Before doing more specific treatments, energy medicine practitioners routinely help people to get their body’s overall energies into a strong and healthy flow.
  • Over the years, Donna Eden designed a five-minute “Daily Energy Routine” that combines the most potent techniques we know that are able to help the greatest number of people to stimulate each of the vital energy systems and bring them into harmony and balance.
  • In the Daily Energy Routine are some of the methods an energy medicine practitioner might give to you after an initial consultation to help you strengthen and balance your own energies. You can do much for yourself through the Daily Energy Routine alone. The Daily Energy Routine takes about five minutes, and then also dedicating five additional minutes for experimenting with other methods can make a real difference in your health and vitality.
  • The Daily Energy Routine can be found in Donna Eden’s book: Energy Medicine (Chapter 3).
  • Five areas you might experiment with as adjuncts to the Daily Routine are 1) the the “Homolateral Crossover,” 2) “Connecting Heaven and Earth,” 3) techniques for sedating the triple warmer meridian, 4) the “Neurovascular Hold,” and 5) the “Blow Out.” All are presented in Donna’s book and are taught by Victoria Putman in her Energy Exercises, Level 1 class.

THE SECOND LEVEL by which energy medicine might make a difference with a health concern involves an assessment of your body’s energies and the ways they are related to the condition.

  • Based on that assessment, individualized treatments can be designed to make your energy system more robust, specifically in the ways that will help with the health condition.
  • If you are a beginner with energy medicine, this is more than we recommend you attempt without the help of a qualified practitioner (see below for suggestions on how to find one).
  • However, various resources mentioned below will give you an idea of where to begin. The book Energy Medicine gives further instruction in how to assess your energies and correct problems with them.
Energy Medicine first approaches a health condition by strengthening the person’s overall energy system and then by working with specific energies that are involved in the problem.

Emotional Freedom Techniques

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is an emotional, needle-free version of acupuncture that is based on new discoveries regarding the connection between your body’s subtle energies, your emotions, and your health. EFT has been reported successful in thousands of cases covering a huge range of emotional, health, and performance issues. It often works where nothing else will.


EFT involves tapping on specific meridian points to diffuse emotional charges held within the body. The results can be astounding and quick, and have been found to be effective in overcoming addictions, controlling pain, weight loss, and the release of painful memories. EFT is also helpful in establishing positive habits.



Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by “laying on hands” and is based on the idea that an unseen “life force energy” flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one’s “life force energy” is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy.

The word Reiki is made of two Japanese words – Rei which means “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and Ki which is “life force energy”. So Reiki is actually “spiritually guided life force energy.”

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of spiritual healing and self-improvement that everyone can use. For ages, it has been effective in helping virtually every known illness and malady and always creates a beneficial effect. Reiki is a system unto itself and can also be used in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery. Reiki is often used prior to surgery, post surgery, or after chemotherapy or radiation treatments to help the body prepare for or recover from medical procedures.

Reiki works with the body’s wisdom, sending the healing energy to the areas that most need help or care.


“PSYCH-K® is a user-friendly way to rewrite the ‘software’ of your mind in order to change the ‘printout’ of your life.”— Robert. M. Williams, M.A. Originator of PSYCH-K® YOUR BELIEFS ESTABLISH THE LIMITS OF WHAT YOU CAN ACHIEVE! As Henry Ford once said,”If you believe you can, or if you believe you can’t… you’re right!”Your life is a reflection of your beliefs. These beliefs – usually subconscious – are the cumulative effect of life-long “programming.” As a result of past negative programming, we sometimes think and behave in self-defeating ways. PSYCH-K provides a user-friendly way to rewrite the “software” of your mind by changing beliefs that limit you into beliefs that support you… quickly and easily.When you rewrite the “software” of your mind, you change the “printout” of your life.Changing subconscious beliefs that may be getting in the way of well-intentioned actions is similar to reprogramming a personal computer. Using PSYCH-K processes—a kind of “mental keyboard” to your own brain—you can increase “cross talk” between the two hemispheres of the cerebral cortex, thereby achieving a more “whole-brained” state, which is ideal for changing subconscious beliefs. In addition, when right and left hemispheres of the brain are in simultaneous communication, the qualities and characteristics of both hemispheres are available to maximize your full response potential to life’s challenges. PSYCH-K helps you communicate directly with both the conscious and the subconscious minds, so you can change old self-limiting beliefs into new self-enhancing ones that support you! This unique process is a blend of various tools for change, some contemporary and some ancient. Like many innovations in the world, PSYCH-K was the result of a “blinding flash of the obvious” generated by years of research and thousands of sessions with individuals and groups.PSYCH-K processes are easy to learn and simple to use![Top of Page]
