Frequently Asked Questions
What types of Energy Healing do you provide?
At Lotus Flower Alchemy, we provide Reiki (Usui, Imara, and the Golden Triangle), which uses symbols and laying of the hands to allow gentle energy to flow to the client. Reiki is a Japanese technique for relaxation and stress reduction. Reiki is a simple, natural and effective form of energy work that facilitates relaxation, stress reduction and feelings of wellbeing that can benefit everyone. It can be used along with all other forms of treatment and often helps relieve side effects and promotes recovery.
We also provide the Emotion Code and soon will add the Body Code method of energy healing. Created by Dr. Bradley Nelson (D.C., ret) after more than 20 years as a holistic chiropractor and teacher, The Emotion Code is designed to help you alleviate physical discomfort, ease emotional wounds, and restore love to relationships.
Our premise is that the wisdom of the body is not held in the conscious, active mind, but in the subconscious mind, where the record of every experience, thought, feeling, or memory you’ve ever had is stored. We believe the subconscious mind exerts an unseen yet profound influence over how we behave and feel — and it’s also keenly aware of exactly what your body needs to get well. It’s our belief that to access these vast stores of knowledge, we need to bypass the conscious mind and speak directly to the subconscious. This is where muscle testing comes in!
To understand how healing works through the use of The Emotion Code, it’s important to recognize this truth: The body is made up of pure energy. Every organ, every bit of tissue … indeed, every cell of the body is made up of energy. But there’s more. All of the non-physical aspects of yourself — your thoughts, your beliefs, your memories, your emotions — are also made up of energy. When viewed from this energetic standpoint, you can see just how easy it really is to affect change, and how true and lasting healing really is possible. So by tapping into the subconscious mind through muscle testing, we can ask the right questions to lead us to the emotions stored in the body and release them.
What does an Energy Healing treatment feel like?
Whether receiving Reiki or an Emotion Code session, when an energy healing session takes place clients may feel the energy move around as it is released.
Many individuals report feeling a tingling sensation, cold or heat, during a session, and most enter a calm, relaxed state. In some, chronic or acute pain can diminish or completely vanish. Sometimes allergies and other conditions completely disappear. It’s different for each person.
It’s important to remember that, whatever challenge we are experiencing, we did not get it ‘overnight’ and we are not likely to ‘recover overnight’, either. Energy work is not any more magical than any other modality or allopathic medicine. It takes time and commitment to enjoy long term benefits. It is very important to understand that there are many layers to release and our bodies will only allow so much to be safely released at a time. So for chronic issues it will take multiple sessions to get to the root of the issue.
What should I expect after a treatment?
You should find yourself either very relaxed and feeling “lighter” or feeling re-energized. Allow yourself a few minutes to come fully back into your awareness. You may feel so relaxed that you are spaced-out. Whatever it is that you need, is what you will experience.
Be sure to drink lots of water as energy healing is very detoxifying. You should sleep very well.
It is not unusual for people to experience a mild natural detoxification as the body adjusts itself to the energy shift. It is recommended that you drink some extra water and/or herbal tea so that the toxins are flushed out more readily. You may want to rest more, so allow time for that. Doing some simple stretching exercises will help you feel grounded.
Most people feel an immediate improvement in their level of pain and energy. An overall feeling of well being may be experienced.
How often should I have a treatment?
Initially, for Reiki, three or four sessions over the first two weeks are recommended. This helps to remove deep-rooted blocks in your energy system. Thereafter, once a week or once every two weeks is recommended, until the issue has resolved. Usually a subtle improvement is noticed even after the first session. It may take five to six visits to notice a marked improvement. Dis-ease generally begins in the energy field so if we keep our subtle bodies healthy using Reiki, and our physical bodies healthy with good nutrition and exercise, we should be able to remain active and whole. Once the initial issue has resolved, most people like to have a Reiki session every 4-6 weeks, or seasonally, as part of their wellness regime.
For the Emotion Code, we will work with your subconscious to find out at the end of each session how long you need to wait in-between and the preferred amount of sessions needed.

How is Energy Healing a holistic approach to my well-being?
Energy Healing is a complimentary and not an alternative to your current medical plan. It is recommended that you continue with any medications you have been prescribed and continue to see your medical practitioner, or other holistic practitioners, unless you first speak with them personally. Energy Healing works in harmony and compliments all other forms of therapy. The Practitioner does not diagnose nor prescribe – nor does ethics or law allow them to.
Babies, children & pregnant women can benefit immensely from Energy Work. It creates a soothing and comforting environment for the whole family. Energy Healing is very safe with no harmful side-effects. And don't forget your pets!!! They have trapped emotions too and often take on a lot of our issues. They are very receptive to Energy Healing.
Is Reiki a religious practice?
No, there is no dogma attached to Reiki. You do not have to believe or subscribe to any form of religion to benefit from Reiki. Reiki also takes into account free will so it is never forced or given without permission.
How do distant treatments work?
Reiki (Universal Life Force Energy) teaches us that we are more than just our physical bodies and that Reiki surrounds us as an energy body. Reiki energy connects on our spiritual and energetic levels. Distant Reiki sessions work because energy is not limited by distance. Distance is only a physical limitation, so sessions can be done without clients being physically present. We are all connected, as we are all energy matter and part of a larger whole.
A distant healing session can be done in a number of ways. The practitioner can use a proxy, use visualization, or use a projection of Reiki to send Reiki energy to someone else. The distant Reiki symbol joins the Reiki practitioner and the client together in a sacred healing space.
To receive distant Reiki healing you don’t have to do anything special, but it’s best to lie down and be still if possible. The recipient and healer can agree on a time beforehand and the person receiving simply needs to sit or lie down for the specified amount of time (typically a half hour or so). The effects of distant healing are virtually no different than hands-on healing. An experienced Reiki healer (level II or higher) can send healing energy to a person anywhere in the world no matter how far away from the healer they are. The energy transmissions in a remote session are just as strong as if they were delivered in person directly with the hands. Distant healings are ideal for those who don’t live in a reasonable distance from a practitioner, people who don’t have the means to travel to and from a healers office, or if you don’t particularly like someone touching you, a distance healer can provide the same benefit without the need to physically touch. Those who are interested in receiving a Reiki healing session do not have to be suffering from any type of illness to benefit from a session. Sessions can help keep the energy channels open, decreasing the likelihood of illness due to blocked Chakras.
The Emotion Code is done either in person, via a proxy, or by distance by proxy. At Lotus Flower Alchemy, we do all our Energy Healing sessions by distance by proxy. This means you can fully relax in the comfort of your home. For the Emotion Code, the practitioner will connect to your subconscious by muscle testing themselves as a proxy. Then they will ask your subconscious different questions relating to the issues being addressed in the session. This will allow them to find and release the Trapped Emotions contributing to the issues. At the end of the session the practitioner will type up a report of everything released and send it to you via the email you provided.
