The Healing Connections Method of Integrated Healing Science (HCM) is designed to support and inspire clients in ways that enhance their lives. Every life challenge is unique, and the holistic skills used are designed to meet those individual needs, whether they are physical, mental or emotional. Pain may be a part of life, but suffering is optional. All methods used are safe, complement traditional medical and psychological care and are an excellent addition to an integrated health care program.
What is Hands of Light Healing?
Hands of Light Healing, or Brennan Healing Science (BHS) is a specialized form of integrative energy healing taught at the Barbara Brennan School of Healing (BBSH).
It is a system that works with the client’s consciousness and energy field to heal on the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels. Specific skills and techniques balance, charge, clear and repair the energy field to help restore health on all levels.
Matrix Energetics® is a complete system of healing, self-care and transformation created by Dr. Richard Bartlett. ME is based on the laws and expression of subtle energy physics and transformation takes place by communicating at the quantum level with the wave fronts (energy and information) that create all of reality.

How does hands-on healing work?
The practitioner partners with the client to support health. Energy work is not a fix, it is a transformational process of increased self awareness, pattern recognition, and empowerment. Energy flows from the practitioner to the client and the client naturally receives the energy as needed. As healthy energy flows, it release blocks of stagnant energy that cause imbalances.
What exactly is an energy field?
It is the an organized pattern of energy that surrounds and penetrates the body of all living things, the qualities of which relate directly to a person’s state of health. Energy flows into the field through the chakra system in much the same way as the digestive system nourishes the physical body.
Can scientists prove the existence of an energy field?
Yes. Research so far shows that the energy field has properties that suggest it to be both particular in nature like fluid and also energetic like light waves. The electromagnetic frequency of the field has been measured and correlated to the frequency of colors observed in the field by sensitive healers. An interesting book on the subject is The Field by Lynne McTaggert.
Do I need to keep seeing my doctor if I do this work?
Yes, if you have been diagnosed with a physical, or emotional illness that requires the care of a physician. This work is not a replacement for traditional medical or psychological care, but is complementary to it. It is recommended that client’s facing medical issues work with a team of health care professionals to provide the most complete care possible. If you are not currently under the care of a physician and require it, the practitioner can refer you.
What are some of the conditions that respond to the Healing Connections Method?
Energy Medicine has been used effectively for stress management, pain management, and accelerated recovery time from injury and medical procedures as recommended by Dr. Christiane Northrup MD. It has been shown to be an effective support during cancer treatment as recommended by Dr. Andrew Weil, MD. HCM has treated people with Lyme Disease, injuries, anxiety, depression, cancer, cardiovascular disease, infertility, thyroid problems, colitis, immune system disorders, burns, contusions and fractures. HCM is also useful for personal growth and relationship issues. Because humans are holistic beings, mental, physical, emotional and spiritual aspects are interconnected. When we work with one aspect, we work with all. Healing is an opportunity to grow, to let go of old patterns, make new choices and find a new way of being in the body
How effective is this method? Is there proof that it works? Is there scientific research?
Most of the research done so far is anecdotal, and there is a lot of interest in these approaches right now. The most famous study was completed by Elizabeth Targ, on the effect of distance healing with AIDS patients. Results proved that energy medicine made a statistically significant difference in the quality and quantity of life in this population. Other studies have been less definitive, and some quite negative. This work is difficult to evaluate with current scientific methods. For many, the fact that they tried it and feel better is all the research needed.

Heal or cure?
Healing is not fixing what is wrong or curing. HCM helps people on a healing journey find patterns of personal meaning and with that awareness comes the possibility for physical wellbeing, comfort, increased conscious awareness and wholeness. In correlation with that there are improved conditions, cures, and mended bodies, minds and spirits. Healing may mean healthier relationships with family members, or it may result in the ability to know and do your life’s work. For others healing may mean coming to terms with life as it is.
Does insurance cover the sessions?
Not yet, although some insurance companies are beginning to cover complementary treatments.
