Frequently Asked Questions
1. What does ‘healing’ mean?
In English the word ‘healing’ derives from ‘wholing’ meaning to make whole.
Every form of medicine and care that takes place between one person and another is a form of healing.
2. What is healing?
Every human being is made up of a body, mind and soul and is thus, what is termed, a ‘multi-dimensional being’. Our physical body is supported by an energy field which contains all the information about our body, mind and soul from various dimensions and energetic frequencies. Before problems start to manifest at the physical or mental levels they are already perceivable as disturbances and blocks in the energy field. In complementary medicine ‘healing’ is a general term through which various forms of energy work can be implied such as reiki and therapeutic touch. The goal of all these modalities is to improve the client’s well-being by working with their energy field.
3. What characterises a ‘Healers Connectie’ healer?
A ‘Healers Connectie’ healer has been trained in both energetic and psychological techniques. S/he understands the physical, emotional and mental development of a person as well as the spiritual unfolding. In addition, s/he has developed the ability to consciously bring energy through during a healing and to observe and follow what unfolds during this process. The quality of a healer is determined by his/her own personal development and the degree to which s/he is conscious of the energetic imbalances in his/her own energy field. The training requirements for Healers Connectie healers guarantee a reliable level of quality for these aspects.
4. Is healing a substitute for regular (mainstream) medicine?
No. Healing is a form of complementary care, which is additional to regular medical care. When a client is searching for healing of a physical, mental or emotional problem, the healer can work in a supporting role complementary to a medical doctor. Often clients come to a healer for their own personal growth (without further necessary medical support).
5. For whom is healing suitable?
Healing is in principle suitable for everyone, and there are no requirements or limits on age or health. Within this broad target group there are specialisations e.g. working with children requires a different approach to working with those terminally ill; working with psychiatric clients is very different to working with clients in a personal growth context. The specialisations are usually developed by the healer’s personal character, his/her training and their experience portfolio.
6. Does healing provide support in the recovery process for physical illnesses?
Yes. Healing can provide support during the healing process from a physical illness, in addition to regular medical care. Some examples are:
7. Does healing provide support in the recovery process for mental illnesses?
Yes. Healing can provide support during the healing process from a mental illness, in addition to regular medical care. Some examples are:
8. Does healing provide support in personal growth?
Yes. Healing can provide support during the general process of personal development. Some examples are:
9. What healing is NOT
For many people ‘healing’ has a magical quality about it. The healer works with energy and the spiritual world, and it is this that is often associated with miracles. In the case of terminal illnesses, people come to a healer in the last phase of their life hoping that s/he can cure them when they can no longer be helped by the regular medical world. This is usually in vain. A healer is not a magician! A healer can support and accompany the client in their process, but healing is no guarantee of being cured. Miracles do happen, but just as in the regular medical world, they are more the exception than the rule.
10. How long does a session/treatment last?
Usually a healing lasts 1-2 hours. The healer works from different levels of consciousness and on various levels of energetic reality. As part of this s/he will use their hands, words, sounds, awareness and the help of ordinary and extra-ordinary sense perception.
11. What happens during the first session?
During the first session (and sometimes before, depending on the healer) the client fills in an intake form in which their background and current complaints are noted. The healer will go more deeply into the reason for making the appointment, and during the conversation s/he gathers information about the most important problems and observes the client’s body strucuture, body language, verbal language and how the person uses their energy system. After this the healer asks the client to take their shoes off and to lie down on the (massage/healing) table. The client does not need to remove any clothing.
12. What can I expect during a healing?
After the intake, when the client is lying on the table, the healer will place their hands on the client’s feet and let energy flow. The healer will then work their way slowly up the body, placing their hands on several different energetically important places. Depending on what came to light during the intake talk – or what surfaces during the healing – the healer will use different techniques focussed on cleaning, energising and balancing the energy field as well as repairing any (dimensional) distortions. The healer does this by tuning into the client’s energy field and as such acts as a channel for energy and consciousness. The client develops insight(s) into his/her own life and patterns and learns how to take responsibility for them. As a result a (further) physical, psychic and spiritual unfolding is set in motion and this is always geared towards an improvement in the client’s well-being.
13. Does the healer always touch the client’s body?
Not always. It can sometimes happen that the healer hardly touches the client’s body and simply works in the vicinity of the body.
14. What happens to my energy during and after a healing?
During the healing the healer observes the effect that the healing has on the client’s energy field, and simultaneously adjusts his/her own field accordingly. As the healing progresses the effect becomes stronger. The client’s brain switches over to alpha (8Hz) waves, otherwise known as the healing state. Increasingly more energy is added into the client’s energy system and by the time the healer has traversed all the levels of the client’s energy field and has finished the healing, the client is generally in a deeply relaxed state. When the healing is completed, the client is usually advised to rest on the table for a few minutes to let their energy field stabilise and integrate the healing energies. In general the healing keeps on working through the client’s energy system for 24-36 hours after the session. The person can sometimes feel ‘different’ to how they are normally used to feeling. The longer term effects vary from person to person. The healer may also recommend further sessions over a period of time.
15. What does a healing cost?
The costs of a healing are dependant on the healer, region, training, experience and field of specialisation. For more information, please contact the individual healer you are interested in via the web page ‘Find a Healer’
16. Are the costs for a healing covered by my health insurance?
This depends on the health insurer. Some companies reimburse healings if you are insured for alternative medicine, others reimburse the sessions only if the healer is a member of a professional organisation, and others do not reimburse anything at all.
