Posts Tagged ‘Shamanic healing’

This post is in response to the requests of clients to learn more about Shamanism and what happens during the Shamanic treatment. To schedule your own appointment with me call Glow’s office. 206 568 7545

It began after a “dark night of the soul” which occurred during the time of my two ACL (1992, 1995) reconstructions and one major meniscus repair. It wasn’t until my first Shamanic session that I started to get a framework for my own personal “spiritual” experiences, some of which had been fairly disconcerting and life changing.

 At first I thought, it was PRETTY kooky. But hey, I was already an acupuncturist and many people think that’s pretty crazy too. I received my first session as a gift and didn’t know what to expect. She asked me what I wanted to focus on and I was unclear. I didn’t really have any problems. Finally, I conceded that having been born and raised in the country, I sometimes found the city noise, lights, and traffic to be a little much. Was that something she could help with? She said we’d find out. I don’t remember much else from that first encounter. I lay on the ground and she shook a rattle near my head. I relaxed. Afterword, I no longer felt that way about the city. I found that interesting.

 Betsy  and I began to work together in the same office.  I noticed that with certain issues, she helped people address in a couple sessions what I felt would take many more,  if not years to treat with acupuncture. This included physical, emotional and spiritual issues. I’ve included a small study through Kaiser that shows promise in the treatment of jaw pain with Shamanic medicine. Kaiser study on jaw pain

I asked Betsy to be my mentor and began training in 2002.

Shamanism is not a religion (unless you want it to be) although it can add depth to any religion. It is an ancient healing modality which uses near universal principles and archetypes to access spiritual information and facilitate healing.  It provides direct access to personal spiritual information. It is worlds of archetypes and storytelling. It is realms that we all know and have access to like nature, and myth. Anyone who has ever felt healed after a good book or a poignant movie understands that image and messages at the right time can feel like they are “just for us” and have profound effects. It’s also about connection or reconnection with our natural state, and our natural world.
