Austin Energy Healer Melissa Jacobsen Explains Why Her Reiki Business Is Growing

Melissa Alexis Jacobsen of Austin and Georgetown TX has been practicing Reiki energy healing for many years and explains that with all the confusion surrounding Obamacare and the perception of higher health costs many people are turning to her energy healing services for the first time in their lives.

New health laws are waking people up to the self realization that it’s time for everyone to take responsibility for their own preventative health care. This is exactly the driving force behind the rapid growth in Melissa’s clientele. She describes her new clients in this way, “I have people contacting me that would in no way be described as new age or spiritual seekers. They have simply done their research and understand that there is a mind-body energy connection that needs to be monitored for optimal health thus lessening the need for traditional “treat the symptom” type health care visits.”

The days of running to the doctor for every little ache and pain are soon to be over. The new health care laws seem to be having an opposite effect on what they were originally intended for. Disregarding early signals from the body that that something needs attention, in order to save money, is actually leading many people straight to hospital emergency rooms.

Complementary health care like Reiki energy healing is why Melissa’s clients seek her out. She has this to say about her typical Reiki session, “Reiki is a very relaxing whole body experience. I begin with a prayer to open the flow of healing energy and then I perform a body scan with my hands a few inches above the client. What I’m feeling for are changes or blocks in the sensations of energy flow, and when I sense something I’ll ask the patient if they’ve noticed any changes in this area of the body.”

Reiki is excellent for tapping into areas of imbalance within the body. Melissa goes on to say, “it is so important to take control of your health and experience this mind-body energy connection that we all have. The longer we engage in this practice we notice that the body tells us the areas in our life that need attention long before something physical appears.” This kind of intelligent communication can start with a whisper and when we don’t notice or heed this subtle nudge then the body often has to give us a thump on the head to get our attention.

Melissa explains, “for instance if I feel an energy imbalance in the back, I’ll explain to the client that back issues can have emotional root causes for “lack of support” feelings – especially lower back problems can be related to fears about money. When we begin to discuss what is going on in their lives it’s amazing what comes to the surface. Back problems can even be traced to feeling like you are being taken for granted, or not being supported in your home or work environment. Right now it’s an energy imbalance I feel, but later if the client does nothing, these feelings that the client is holding onto can manifest as health conditions that require expensive standard medical treatments to correct.” In other words, a Reiki session can go a long way in lowering standard health costs.

Staying healthy and preventing dis-ease in your body is quite simple with Reiki. When you understand the mind-body-energy connection you will undoubtedly learn more about yourself and this leads to a better quality of life overall.
