Frequently Asked Questions
How long is the average healing session?
The time needed depends on what each receiver requests and can vary from 5 minutes of soaking prayer, clearing or other treatment to up to 60 minutes. Typically, appointments are booked for 30+ minutes.
Is this only for people who have a physical illness or are in pain?
No, healing sessions are good for all. It is a time of quiet reflection and personal healing. It benefits everyone, physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually at all levels of their being.
Will it still work if I don’t believe in it?
Yes. If you set your intention at the beginning of the session as a receiver, and you are open to receive healing energy, know you will receive what is in your highest interest.
Does this interfere with other forms of healing or medical treatment?
No, a Healing Pathway healing session complements and supports other forms of healing sequence, and it is not intended to replace any medical treatments prescribed by health care practitioners.
Do the practitioners have any special training?
Practitioners are trained to be a heart-centred, loving presence, and to offer techniques in an intentional manner to facilitate and support the healing process of an individual, for physical, emotional, intellectual, and spiritual well-being. The practitioners’ gifts and skills of healing are developed within a Christian tradition through courses provided by certified Healing Pathway instructors. The Healing Pathway program is reclaiming the hands-on healing practices that are rooted in the early Christian church.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge for a healing session.
What happens during a healing session?
Each session starts with introductions and questions are answered about what will take place during the session. At this time there will be discussion about why the receiver has come and how they would like to benefit from the session. They will then lie on a massage table or sit in a chair. An opening prayer is said before the session begins. Quiet music plays in the background while the practitioners work silently using techniques that have been learned and practised in training sessions with the Healing Pathway Society. The session may involve touch or just hand movements above the body. The intention is always for the highest and best for the receiver and the receiver is always in control.
When the session is completed, the practitioners will finish with grounding the receiver and releasing them in prayer.
How does it work?
Healing Pathway practitioners participate in training workshops before offering healing to receivers. There are 4 levels of training. In each training level, different techniques are learned. It is usual for a more experienced practitioner to work with those not as far along in the training. Being grounded as a practitioner and acting as an open channel allows for healing energy to flow to those areas needed. Restoring balance and harmony enables healing from within.
What if I am uncomfortable with being touched?
It isn’t necessary to touch the body for energy to be shared and received. If you feel uncomfortable with touch, the sessions can be done in your personal energy field above and around the body.
