Similar to conventional therapy, intuitive counseling involves talking about the patient and feelings, emotions, pain, their day-to-day challenges, relationships and complications, traumas, distress, and issues that are affecting them.

The word, ‘Reiki’ is made of two parts, ‘rei’ meaning universal and ‘ki’ meaning ‘life force’. Reiki healers transfer the “universal energy” through their palms to the patient and regulate functions of the organs, which need healing. Reiki has various potential health benefits that help your body to heal from the disease.
Rooted in the ancient spirituality of Indian culture, Pranic healing is a holistic approach towards wellness. The word ‘pranic’ comes from ‘prana’, meaning ‘life’ in Sanskrit. It refers to the invisible bio-energy of the life force that keeps us alive and healthy. When a disruption occurs in this energy we fall sick and suffer. This form of healing does not involve physical touch, but it uses the body’s own energy to cleanse any toxic or bad energy that is causing the pain, thus relieving the symptoms that come with it.
Qigong is an ancient energy healing technique that dates back to over 4000 years, with its roots in traditional Chinese medicine. It makes use of breathing exercises, coordinated body movements, and meditation to stimulate and regulate the flow of energy and begin the process of healing. Our body functions the best with the right balance of energy, a disruption of which is often the cause of our pain and stress. By restoring the loss of energy balance, it helps in relieving these issues.
Zero Balancing is an energy healing technique that was formulated by an osteopath to help patients manage chronic pain without excessive medication. The healer exerts gentle but firm pressure and traction on the pressure points of the affected areas to clear away any energy blockages that might be causing pain and discomfort. By restoring the flow, creates a healthy balance of energy and stimulates vitality. Physical touch and the series of pressure help the healer connect with the patient and leaves them feeling relaxed.
Energy healing can be used as a stand-alone option, or in conjunction with traditional medicine as well. It does not interfere with any treatment procedure but only acts as supportive care that enhances its effects in promoting holistic well-being.
