Let me share with you a secret about healing, which is what Healcyon is all about. On my path to discover the best techniques and traditions for healing pain that comes with the human experienced, I came across the ultimate healer. This healer has the wisdom of a hundred thousand lifetimes, and can tap into dimensions beyond rational understanding for the intelligence and energies appropriate for healing work.
You may already have guessed it, but it’s the human body! The human body has an incredible potential to regenerate its cells and recover from damage. This is the underlying wisdom of learning a Mind-Body Art like Yoga or Qi Gong-a practice to allow the body the time and space to recover and heal itself.
This may be a strange introduction to Healcyon’s healing services-after all, why would you need a therapist of any kind if you have all your healing within? Well while the body is the greatest healer, I also need to mention what can be its best friend or its greatest enemy:
The mind has a powerful ability (and a puzzling one that many have not yet solved!) to block our growth and healing process. We as humans can and do get stuck in certain thought processes, behaviors, and poor movement patterns. My own story of healing illustrates this concept: I was in chronic pain for two years after breaking both wrists in a motorcycle crash. Physical Therapy had been completed and I was told that this was the best it would get, and so my mind got stuck in that belief. It was not until entering massage school when a teacher casually mentioned that it could get better-and then worked on it and reconnected my body’s truth to update my mind- that I actually became pain free. This liberating experience moves me to why healers are useful in this process. Most “healers” have moved on to call themselves:
To pay respect to the fact that the body and spirit are repairing the body while they are present to help this process along and get the mind unstuck. I prefer to use the term Healing Arts Professional because I believe there is indeed an art to facillitating this process and that each mind needs a unique key to unlock its potential. Touch is a medium through which a whole range of emotional, energetic, and kinesthetic information can be transferred-and facillitators use this medium to communicate and help the mind let go. Catalyst of healing is another word often used because of the “igniting” or “re-awakening” of the body’s self-healing capacity that occurs during sessions.
