Commonly asked questions:
We have listed some of the more commonly asked questions. However any healer will be more than happy to answer any other queries and put your mind at rest about the process of receiving healing.
What is healing?
The healing of mind, body and soul by means of prayer and meditation and the laying on of hands. This healing can be effected by contact with the patient or by means of absent or distant healing. The laying on of hands can either be by contact on the body or on the aura, linking up the natural healing power within the body through the Healer. By attuning him/herself to the sufferer and the divine healing, he/she serves as the channel through which the Divine energies flow. There is no need for ritual, manipulation or the removal of clothing.
What does it do?
Whilst no guarantee of part or whole of a cure can be given, healing can be beneficial to sufferers of any form of disease or illness. This form of healing is often used to complement other forms of treatment the patient may be receiving from a GP. It can help to eliminate pain, to reduce stress and anxiety. However, it goes beyond securing physical improvement. Its aim is to bring into harmony your spirit, mind and body, so that you may lead a full, healthy and happy life. At the end of your healing, we want you to be not only physically well, but living in peace and harmony with yourself. We encourage all healing applicants to also take and active part in their own healing journey with the use of simple relaxation or breathwork techniques when possible.
Who practices Healing?
Trained healers working under the auspices of a Governing Body. There is a hierarchy of healing organisations which is governed by an overall body.
Where do Healers work?
Healers treat patients in their own homes, at Churches, Healing Centres, Clinics and in Hospitals, Hospices and Therapy Centres. Recent legislation now permits a Doctor to recommend a Healer to their patient provided that the doctor retains overall responsibility for his patient. There are now both Government financed and private healing centres in the UK where Spiritual Healers and Therapists work together.
Many healers will accept a voluntary donation from the patient towards their expenses. However this is up to the individual healer and the patient, so it is advisable to check this when making an appointment.
What to do when you wish to stop visiting the healer
When you decide to stop, please tell your healer. This is not just a matter of common courtesy but healers develop a real concern for their patients and they like to know whether the healing has been successful or whether there are any more problems that can be sorted out.
How about my doctor?
Healing is not intended to be a substitute for orthodox medical treatment. You should continue to consult your doctor. If you tell him that you are receiving healing, explain that its purpose is simply to stimulate the natural healing forces of your body. It does not in any way interfere with medical treatment. Doctors today are far more supportive of all complimentary therapies than they were even a few years ago
Isn’t it Faith healing? What's the difference?
Healing is not Faith Healing. The term “Faith Healing” implies that the recipient needs to believe in a deity and that the deity is the source of healing. Healing is not linked to a particular religion. Faith by the patient is not required and healing can help people regardless of their spiritual beliefs
