Spiritual Healing

Spiritual Healing is a gentle, holistic therapy which involves the transfer of natural energy through the healer to the recipient.

It helps to restore the balance of body, mind and spirit and promotes self-healing by relaxing the body, releasing tensions and re-energising the body’s own immune system.

Healing complements conventional medicine and often helps with the speed and extent of recovery from serious illness and major surgery and from the effects of treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy.

Spiritual Healing has been used since the beginning of recorded history. Its roots are in India, China, Egypt and Greece but healing exists in various forms throughout the world.

The history of ancient medicine across the globe has a common theme - that healing cannot be tackled on a physical level alone - and holds a shared knowledge of how to use natural energies to restore the body’s own healing process.

Hippocrates – seen as the father of modern medicine – recognised healing energies and described the heat that can emanate from the hands to be very beneficial.

Spiritual in this context relates to spiritus; the life force energy and breath that is within us all.

Spiritual Healing is about treating the whole person. It energises body, mind and spirit and so its effects can be felt on many levels, not just the physical.

Healing energy is all around us. In essence it is ‘universal’ - part of nature itself. It is available for everyone to use for the greatest good. Healers learn to use their ability to tap into this natural energy and pass it on.

Depending on their individual beliefs some healers and recipients see the energy as divine; others see it as pure universal energy. It is often visualised as simply ‘love and light.’

Healers who belong to NFSH complete a two-year comprehensive programme of training, practise and development as Probationer Members before they are eligible to be considered for Healer Membership.

All NFSH healers are insured for the protection of the public.

NFSH members are bound by a Code of Conduct which sets standards for practising healer members and which acts as a reference on those standards for the public.

Healing is usually given in response to an invitation and is either given in the presence of the recipient/patient (Contact Healing) or sent from a distance (Distant Healing.)

The healer will explain the process, make sure the recipient is comfortable and then ‘attune’ to the healing energy with the intent of channelling that energy for the benefit of another. The energy is directed to the recipient; if they are present this is usually done through the hands, if they are not present the energy is directed through visualisation.

The patient normally sits on a chair or lies on a couch. The healer will work around the recipient, channelling energy to any area that seems in need. As long as the person is comfortable then hands may be placed on some parts of the body, usually the shoulders and the feet. Most of the time the healer works slightly off the body, working within the energy field or ‘aura’ of the recipient.

Most sessions last about half-an-hour, giving the recipient time to enjoy an oasis of peace. Many continue to feel relaxed and calm for sometime afterwards. A healing session is usually followed by a glass of water and/or a cup of tea and some time to talk about the experience, if the patient finds that helpful.

Healers can never promise a particular outcome but it is unusual for healing not to be helpful in some way. Often symptoms of ill health or dis-ease show improvement either at once or over time, and sometimes the improvement can be significant.

Spiritual Healing does not necessarily lead to a return to good health, but so often brings calmness and peace of mind to the recipient. Some of the most valuable work that healers do is with the terminally ill whose passage from this life can be made easier and more peaceful with healing.
