What is energy healing?
Energy healing (or energy medicine) adopts the perspective that everything is comprised fundamentally of energy and everything is connected. From this point of view, our bodies, minds and spirits are all expressions of this vital force, and all influence each other. Energy healing restores harmony and balance to the body's subtle energies, and in doing so restores health to the physical body, equanimity to emotions and luminosity to the spirit. Energy healing can also promote high-level wellness and peak performance.

The Incas believed that everything in our physical world is a manifestation of what is happening in our luminous energy field. After a challenging, traumatic event or situation disrupts our body's energy system, our painful memories, destructive thoughts wrap around it, generating negative emotions, and eventually a manifestation in the physical. In order to heal we need to clear any energetic, mental and emotional blocks and restore flow, balance and harmony so that the physical body can heal itself, clear what brought the disease into the physical, and restore health in the individual physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.

What is luminous energy field?
Luminous energy field or aura is a multi-layered shell of energy that emanates from the physical body, whether of humans, animals, plants, places or objects, and that interacts with the energies of its environment. It can be viewed as a protective wrap that filters out many of the energies encountered and brings in others that are needed and with which it resonates. It then distributes them through the chakra system.

What are chakras?
The word chakra translates from the Sanskrit as disk, vortex, or wheel. Chakras are whirling concentrated centers of energy. They receive, assimilate, and distribute life-force energy (also called “chi”, “ki” or “prana”) within human body for optimum health and well-being. Each chakra supplies energy to specific organs, corresponds to a distinct aspect of one’s personality, and resonates with one of seven universal principles related to survival, creativity, identity, love, expression, comprehension, or transcendence. Chakras also code one’s experiences in their energies, just as memories are chemically coded in person’s neurons. An imprint of every emotionally significant event a person has experienced is believed to be recorded in his/her chakra energies.

Do I have to believe in this stuff for it to work?
No, but it helps. You do not have to believe anything in particular, but it helps to not fight the process with your mind.

The energy medicine practitioner does not heal a client, but rather she holds an invitation and intention for healing. As practitioners, we sense what is out of balance in the energetic field and then use highly focused intention to connect a person with healing forces. Although there are many equivalently good ways to think about what’s going on … in terms of quantum mechanics, helping spirits, light, god, the force of the universe, etc. … they all boil down to affecting change through conscious intention.

It helps if your conscious intention is aligned with that of the practitioner: for your healing. If your mind is actively engaged in thoughts about how this is not going to work, you are consciously or unconsciously setting an intention for the session to not help, which is not helpful.

If you find yourself thinking skeptical thoughts and would like a session, our suggestion is to open to the possibility that it might help, relax, and enjoy a carefree time of unconcerned neutrality.

How long do sessions last?
Each session is unique. Usually they last between 1 and 2 hours, depending on the issue that the client brings.

How does it work?
All sessions take place in ceremonial sacred space, in a safe environment. In the beginning, we discuss what issue you would like to work on. While you lie comfortable and fully clothed on a massage table and focus on your breath, we will track for any emotional or physical imbalances, and clear any heavy or dense energies that might clog up the flow of nourishing and healing energy in your body. Based on the type of a session, we might also identify and replace any limiting beliefs, bring back essential energies or soul parts that might have been lost through past pain or trauma, and/or help you discover your gifts and ignite your passion. We help you come to balance, and start consciously dreaming the world into being in a way that is right for you.

At the end of each session you will receive your ‘homework’, anchors to help you integrate the changes made in your luminous energy field and bring them forward into physical expression. You will also learn about tools that will help you to continue the process on your own. While we can assist you in your healing, ultimately it is up to you, and requires your active participation as a partner in the process. You are the co-creator of your life.

What should I wear?
For most of the session you will be laying fully clothed on the massage table, so wear comfortable, loose (nonrestrictive) clothing. If your feet get easily cold, you might want to wear socks for added comfort.

Where are you located?
We see clients at our dedicated healing space in Mill Valley, CA, just north of San Francisco. Once you schedule at appointment, we’ll send you directions and other information.

I live far away. Do you offer long-distance sessions?
Yes, we do offer long-distance sessions.

Will you guarantee results?
No, we cannot offer any guarantee. We set our intent and work energetically, but Spirit does the heavy lifting. And although healing happens on the energetic level, it is neither possible nor appropriate to guarantee any physical or emotional changes at the outer level. We find that most clients improve within 90 days. For some clients the process of integration may take longer, because healing speed is dependent upon the individual client.

That said, if after a week of integration time following your session you are not satisfied with the work Mann Partners performed on your behalf, we would be happy to give you a refund.

How should I prepare for the session?
During the time leading to your session you should try to relax and avoid stress or turmoil. We don't recommend large family gatherings, weddings, funerals or moving household goods or any other situations where your focus is not on yourself.

What should I do after the session to enhance its impact?
Right after a session, it is a good idea to relax and give yourself some time to reflect. To further help release toxins and speed up the healing process, make sure to drink plenty of water, and end the day with a salt bath.

In the following days pay careful attention to any feelings, dreams or impressions that come up. Please take note of them, and share them with your shamanic practitioner in your follow-up. A follow-up email or call 2 weeks after your session is included in the cost of your session.

What else can be helpful for continuing my healing and self-development?
You might want to establish a practice of regular short meditation or make a habit of recording your dreams. Any regular practice or ritual that brings your attention to your healing intention will help.

What is Munay-Ki?
The Munay-Ki are the nine great rites of initiation of the medicine way, to awaken ancient wisdom and a timeless understanding of life and creation. The name comes from the Quechua language: munay means ‘love’ and ki means ‘power’. The Munay-Ki rites are delivered in the form of energetic transmissions. These energetic rites are common to all shamanic traditions, even though they are expressed in different forms and styles in different cultures.
