The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant. We have created a society that honors the servant and has forgotten the gift.

- Albert Einstein



Why do people come for energy work? Who are your clients?
Most of my clients come to me knowing they want and need a change, yet they feel somewhat lost as how to find it. You might say they feel drawn to this modality, that the pull feels intuitive, like some deep knowing or longing for more clarity and comfort in going forward.

Who is your typical client?
Demographically, my clients range in age from late-teens to retirement age. They are women and men, all along the spectrum of health, education, socio-economic background and experience. The most important similarity is that they feel somehow drawn to change, growth, something bigger. Most describe knowing that where they are in their lives is not where they are meant to be, but are unclear of how to move forward.

Can energy work erase bad experiences that I’ve had in my life?
While energy work may not erase the memory of negative experiences, it does tend to take the focus off. Energy work can also illuminate the experience in such a way that you see another side of it and are able to go forward with more peace.

Do clients come for follow up? If so, how often?
Most clients return for follow-up, stating that they feel a shift is afoot; they feel hopeful. Sally encourages each client to consult their intuition as to what period of follow-up feels best. She has witnessed that clients who come a little more frequently at first tend to feel more acutely the power of momentum/change. However, some clients feel one session is sufficient. It is best to let your intuition guide this process.

Do you see clients for energy work who have no history of food issues?
Absolutely! Whole Spirit Awakening grew out of the expanding interest & referrals of Sally’s Whole Spirit Nutrition practice. Energy work is an amazingly transformative modality for anyone, whether life feels especially challenging, or just a deeper feeling that a shift is needed; whether there are particular roadblocks or the situation is more nebulous. Some clients seek out energy work when they sense being at a crossroads or feel that they aren’t living fully or authentically to who they REALLY are.

Is energy work billable to insurance?
At this time, unfortunately, health insurance carriers do not reimburse for energy work. However, Reiki (one of the most well-known and widely practiced types of energy medicine) is being utilized more and more in conventional medical settings. This is very exciting and a great step forward.

I have had Reiki before, is the Awakening Work pretty much the same thing?
Of course, every person’s experience on the table is different, depending on the practitioner, and where the client is in their life, ability to receive, heal, etc. Each experience receiving energy work is not the same as the one before. From Sally’s perspective, as practitioner and recipient, the Awakening Work feels like a more powerful and transformative modality of energy work than she has found Reiki to be. It is the type of energy work that resonates most strongly with her. Clients are best served to be open to transformation and all that is possible - not to compare modalities.

How much will I change after one energy work session?
It is impossible to know this. The clearing each client receives on the table is determined by Guidance. The way to attain the best outcome possible is to relax and allow for the clearing and healing. Trust the process and be open to the outcomes. They may not be as you envisioned them to be, but they are what is in the Highest Order. Expectations or attempting to control/steer the process only hinders the flow of energy.

How should I expect to feel after energy work?
There is no way to anticipate how you will feel in the 1-3 days following your session. Clients tend to feel very relaxed and possibly a bit "spacey" just after their time on the table. Sally encourages her clients to have some down-time or time to themselves immediately after their session. Energy work is powerful and works on levels of our being that most of us are not accustomed to tuning into. It is important to honor this; therefore Sally encourages her clients to take very good care of themselves, especially in the 3 days following an energy work session:

  • Drink a lot of water
  • Rest if you feel your body needs it (even if not on the ‘schedule’)
  • Avoid heavy/fried foods and eat what makes your body feel good
  • Avoid alcohol if you drink

Try to schedule your appointment to be able to follow through on these recommendations.
