Can I use flex benefits to pay for sessions?

Yes, with a licensed healthcare provider’s prescription or letter of medical necessity, indicating the medical condition that is being helped with healing services. Healing Services is recognized by the federal government as a category of health care expense that may be reimbursed by a health savings or flex benefits plan.

What are sessions like?

Both healing and holistic mentoring sessions involve a time of discussion and intuitive dialogue in which we are both seated. The energy healing bodywork happens when you are on the table. Energy healing sessions are done fully clothed, except that shoes and glasses are removed.

Distance client sessions work similarly. Clients call via telephone or voice Skype at the appointed time. First there will be a time of discussion and Intuitive dialogue. Then for the energy healing portion, you can sit or lie down comfortably while I perform the distance energy healing. We will stay connected on the phone and I will turn my speaker off. Then when it is complete, I’ll let you know.

Energy healing helps to release energetic debris which stimulates the release of toxins from the body. This occurs in both types of sessions - healing and also holistic mentoring. Clients are advised, as in massage therapy, to drink additional water following sessions for 3 days. Please check with your healthcare provider about an appropriate amount of water suggested for you to flush out toxins.

How does intutive holistic mentoring help people?

The goal of Holistic Mentoring is to achieve energetic integrity which is associated with healthy boundaries and a grounded, centered, calm state.

Some of the areas that are helped with the combined holistic mentoring and energy healing services - goal development and achievement, opening creativity, education, life changes, manifesting, moving out of codependency, improving boundaries and relationships, addressing energetic aspects of addictions and compulsions, performance, prevention/wellness, relaxation, self-care, spirituality, transitions, visioning, among others.

It depends on whether you live locally or at a distance. I’ll meet you at my office at 2412 Towncrest Drive, Iowa City. Please check in with the receptionist and she’ll notify me that you are here. In the event the office staff is out, I will come and receive you. We’ll visit in my healing studio and discuss your concerns and how energy healing and holistic mentoring can address those concerns. Telephone or Voice Skype consultations work much the same. We’ll arrange the appointment time. I will be available and you can call me at the scheduled time.

What is involved in becoming a client?

It depends on whether you are an in-person or distance client. In-person clients complete paperwork by coming fifteen minutes before the scheduled time. Please check in with the receptionist and she’ll notify me by text you have arrived. In the event the office staff is out, I will come and receive you. After you fill out the paperwork, you’ll join me for your session and we’ll get started!

Distance clients will receive paperwork via email. Please read them carefully, sign them and return copies of the signed documents as email pdfs. Paperwork must be received at least 2 days prior to the first session. Calls are made via the telephone or voice Skype where the client calls at the appointment time.
