Spiritual Healing is a gentle, relaxing non invasive therapy. Universal Healing energies work on the whole person, 
Mind-Body-Spirit-Emotions to bring about health, balance, harmony, and well-being. The Healing energies are channeled through trained Healers to the patient, and works with the patients own energies to bring about healing. This is done simply by laying hands on or near to the patient. Healing is a complimentary therapy and works alongside any medical treatment. Doctors are able to prescribe spiritual healing for patients.There is no need for a belief in its ability to work, just come with an open mind, relax and let the energies do the rest. All are welcome.
