Whitney is trained to offer Christ-centered energy work using the Usui Method of Natural Healing. This ancient healing art involves intercessory prayer using gentle touch guided by the energy/nerve centers of the body through which energy flows, similar to acupressure, acupuncture, healing touch, and therapeutic touch taught in nursing schools across the country. It complements medical treatment, psychological counseling, and massage therapy in a growing number of medical facilities around the world.
The gentleness of this method (also known as Traditional Reiki) makes it effective with persons who are pregnant, dealing with illnesses such as cancer, recovering from surgery, or in hospice care. Reiki is a Japanese word that means universal life force energy and was rediscovered by a Japanese Christian teacher, Dr. Mikao Usui, in the early 1900s. Imbalances in your energy flow may cause illness, stress, pain or simply a difficult day. By balancing your energy flow naturally, your own body is better able to deal with challenges to the body, mind and spirit that may arise in your daily life.
For this time of healing prayer, wear loose comfortable clothing. You will relax in a quiet atmosphere during the non-intrusive hands-on placing of the practitioner’s hands (with little or no pressure) on or above the energy/nerve centers of the body located on your head, shoulders, chest, stomach and limbs. Results often include deep relaxation, a sense of calm, or deep sleep. You can experience the magnificent God given energy of your very own body through healing prayer and the Usui Method of Natural Healing.
Whitney offers in person energy work sessions at Bloom Yoga Studio in Lebanon, Tennessee. She was trained in the Usui Method of Natural Healing by Rev. Jo Reece, Ordained Deacon in the United Methodist Church.
