104 m a s s a g e & b o d y w o r k m a y / j u n e 2 0 1 6 technique ENERGY WORK Subtle Energy Healing in Your Practice Lessons from a Miracle Maker By Cyndi Dale Over the years, my son has watched hundreds of clients show up at my home office. Frequently, they'd arrive unhappy or sickly and leave more joyful and healthy. He once asked me if I was a doctor. I told him I wasn't, but I was a healer. He responded, "So not all healers are doctors—does that mean there are some doctors who aren't healers?" Fortunately, the bar has been shifting over the years. We're starting to see that physical health-care modalities—including surgery, technological evaluations such as X-rays and MRIs, and, yes, bodywork—are more similar than not to the softer healing processes, which include emotional therapy, hands-on healing, and homeopathy. The commonality is that all health-care practices qualify as energy medicine. The main distinction is there are two main types of energy: physical and subtle. These days, practitioners mix these two types of energy more frequently, getting great results for their clients, thus earning for their discipline the label of energy medicine. The purpose of this column is to introduce you to a little-known but amazing man whose subtle energy practice led to startling recoveries for his patients. You've probably not heard of him, although he assisted thousands of people in the 1800s. He began his life as a physician and ended it as a miracle maker. I've culled clues from his philosophies and successes to present a few tips for how you can better integrate subtle energy into your physically oriented healing practice. His client accomplishments serve as the best testimony I could provide for blending these two sides of healing in your own world.
