Stored In Your Energy

The mind, body, and energy are all intertwined. Anything that affects one of these affects all of them. And those effects can be stored for years or decades, particularly for those who don’t receive treatment. Studies have shown that when someone experiences trauma, the brain is altered by defense mechanisms and the need to survive…

A RiverEvolutions Healing Session

People have asked me what an energy healing session with me is like. I practice a form of energy healing called Chios. This modality includes techniques for repairing, clearing, and restoring the chakras and energy field.

Why I Learned Chios

Chios is a form of energy healing that includes specific techniques for balancing the chakras, clearing the energy field, and repairing energetic damage caused by past physical and emotional experiences.

The thing about energy, your mind, and your body is that they’re all interconnected. Anything that affects one affects all three.

Why I Chose Chios

In 2005, I was struggling. My marriage was toxic and at times abusive. I felt completely incompetent as a mother. I’d discovered I couldn’t fit into the box of public education, so my career as a special education teacher had come to an end. Most importantly, and most impactful, I’d begun recovering memories of abuse…

New Ideas Coming

Over the weekend, I had something like an epiphany about the way I conduct business and what role my truths and beliefs play. I’ve always had strong opinions and beliefs, but I’m not always good at expressing them. Sometimes it’s due to not having the words I need; other times, it’s out of fear of…

Some Info About Chios

People sometimes ask me what the differences are between Chios and other types of energy healing or energy work. That’s a difficult question for me to answer, because I haven’t learned other forms of energy work. I have had people give me Reiki, and have found Chios far more effective for me. (I felt nothing…

My Body’s Telling Me Something…

I posted this on my Facebook profile a few days ago, but wanted to share it here as well. Friday night, I realized that every time I turned over in bed, I felt like I was on a sped-up carnival ride. The room spun, my stomach churned, and it was scary as hell. Saturday morning,…
