Before the healing

Before receiving a Brennan Healing Science (BHS) session, it is helpful to become clear on what your intention is for the session and your healing journey. The more clear you are on your needs and goals, the more likely you are to have your needs met and your goals achieved. To help you do this and so that I may better serve you, I will ask you to fill in a strictly confidential health form (please go to Practical information and paperwork)  and return it to me prior to our first session.

The interview

Typically I’ll will spend the first fifteen-twenty minutes talking with you and learning about what you would like help with. If it is your first session, this amount of time may be longer. During the conversation, I’ll be actively listening and observing the energy patterns of the moment while inviting the Highest Good into the session.

During the interview process, I will ask you questions about your life and health. While BHS Practitioners are not doctors and therefore do not diagnose illness or prescribe drugs, it is important that you share your health history and any significant events or processes of your life with me as your practitioner. In doing so, you will be helping me to serve you better.

The healing

Once the discussion is complete, I will usually ask that you lie down on a massage table, fully clothed and, if necessary,  supported by a bolster. Sometimes though we do the healing work while you sit or stand or even in movement.

Most of the time,  I begin by giving you a chelation which starts at the feet and ends at the head. A chelation is an energy healing technique that clears, charges and balances the energy field and chakras. I may work with your energy without having my hands on your body and you may feel some heat or shifts in your body. During the chelation, I will stay connected to the earth, myself, Spirit and you and I sometimes use sound and song, different breathing and movement. I will also be working with my own energy field to facilitate change in yours through harmunic induction or resonance.  Energy is transmitted to you through focus, intention, and attention.

Once the chelation is complete, I may use various techniques, learned through years of training until the completion of the healing. These techniques include, spine cleaning, restructuring chakras, working with energetic relationship cords and many others.


Hara and Core Star healings

I may also give you a hara and Core Star healing. During this type of healing you would also be laying the table and fully clothed.  Hara is where we hold our intentions, life purpose, and life task.

Hara is an energetic line that connects you to the earth and the heavens. Core Star is your Divine essence or your unique qualities that nobody else has in the same way as you. Healing hara and Core Star can result in a feeling of purpose, acceptance and a knowing of Divinity on a deep level.

The Client’s job

During the session, your job is to receive and relax as much as possible. Each person’s experience during the session is unique and will differ. Some people find it helpful to pay attention to the breath. Others will fall asleep or enter into a half sleep or alpha state of relaxation which is absolutely fine too. A wide range of emotions may arise either during or after the healing. Often people find the healings to be very relaxing and experience a floating sensation. If you can, try to take note of feelings and sensations you experience after the healing without judgment and notice if anything in your body seems different. In doing so, you are supporting your own healing.

Blocked energy is released, allowing you to have a fuller and more comprehensive sense of self. The relationship between you and your healer is transformative and awakens the interconnection between mind, body, and soul. This relationship may take time to build. I invite you to  allow the organic process of healing to unfold.

After the session

Sessions usually last up to sixty minutes.  After the healing is complete, I will spend a short amount time with you. While it is understandable that you might have questions after a healing, generally, it is advisable to keep the conversation to a minimum so that the healing can be fully held and integrated. Questions may be asked at a later time or at the next session. If the healing was a remote one, you will receive an email report about the healing within 24 hours.     It is not uncommon to have vivid dreams the evening of the healing or in subsequent days.
