a message from Diane Chrestman, LCSW, DCEP, CCht
I became interested in energy healing after reading a remarkable study in the journal of Traumatology (Vol 14, Issue 1, Pages 124-137, March 2008).
In this study, energy healing that had been used around the world in the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was evaluated. The PTSD victims in this study had been exposed to various traumas including natural disaster, war, and ethnic cleansing. The presentation of symptoms included insomnia, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, inability to concentrate, and flashbacks. Participants in the study reported a clearing of psychological disturbances associated with PTSD to be greater than 90%.
These results were stunning. As a clinically trained mental health professional, I wanted to learn more…. And I did. Over the next few years I began to study this exciting new modality and received training with other mental health professions. I have witnessed individuals improve their emotional and cognitive health with energy treatments, and I am excited to be able offer this effective new healing modality to my clients.
Conventional medicine is starting to recognize energy healing as an effective treatment for many mental health problems although Eastern cultures have been healing people energetically for thousands of years.
In 2014, there were 60 studies which appeared in various scholarly journals such as the Journal of Clinical Psychology. A level of efficacy was shown in 98% of the studies, when energy treatments were used for a variety of psychological, emotional, and cognitive issues.

Many people are seeking non-invasive and alternative treatment options as we begin to acknowledge the holistic nature of our body and mind and the healing potential contained within. I facilitate the body’s energy to remove blocks, let go, instill healthy belief systems, or improve their mood.
I authentically attempt to facilitate healing so that you can begin the next step of your journey in this life, and so that you can move towards the life you are intended to live.
