Types of Healing

Energy Healing for physical problems

This includes:
• Aiding the person while they are undergoing treatment for cancer.
• Helping the body deal with rehab from any major surgery.
• Aiding the body in the process of dealing with chronic physical illnesses and conditions. 
• Help in the healing of strokes and other physical trauma.

Some healing institutions have noticed the positive effects of energy healing. Many hospitals (such as John Hopkins) have been using energy healers as part of their cancer treatment program. They report that energy work helps those going through chemotherapy to maintain a higher energy level and a better emotional state.

Although some initial scientific studies have been done on the positive healing effects of energy work, the testing has been limited and until society and the traditional healing establishment become more curious, it may take longer for energy healing to be universally accepted by the mainstream medical system.

Please  Note:
I offer energy work to those who are suffering from physical illness because I believe that it helps give the body more energy for healing and removing stress. Removing stress in all your subtle energy bodies when you are ill aids in the overall healing of the illness and trauma. 
I do not claim that the energy work directly heals the illness.

In general, I advise individuals who have a physical problem to seek professional medical treatment, especially if the problem could become life threatening .


Energy work can be used in conjunction with treatments by the medical professional to round out the healing protocol.

Energy Healing for Mental/ Emotional Problems
Including: Depression, General Trauma and PTSD , ADHD and Anger Management


When you look at Mental /Emotional problems you are looking at three areas:
1. Reduced brain integration and functioning.
Due to stress or trauma you may see areas of the brain that have become hyperactive and others that are not active enough (Depression, ADHD, PTSD).

Brain coordination becomes less because the chemicals that maintain electrical connections between the areas in the brain break down. Whole brain function is reduced so perceptions and emotions become distorted and the ability to come up with solutions to problems is reduced.

2. Accumulation of emotional stress
Emotional stress can accumulate in our subtle bodies (related to our organ systems) and negatively color our awareness and how we see what's going on in our lives or around us.
Some of our subtle bodies are mirrors of our physical body with the organs in the same positions.

For example: fear goes to the subtle body kidney/bladder that is connected to our physical organ kidney/bladder.    This is directly attributed to the theory of energy meridians that was developed by the Chinese in the 2nd century AD 649. They have tracked where certain emotional stresses go in our subtle bodies.

3. Senses that experienced that trauma could still hold some of that stress.

This involves our hearing/ears, seeing/eyes, smelling/nose and feeling/skin/nerves.

Please Note:  It has been my experience that Energy Work helps those suffering from mental/emotional problems, but is not a complete substitute for conventional treatment and therapy, especially if the problem is severe. Energy work is not recommended for those suffering from severe depression, and those having a history of suicide ideation and/or attempts and those having a history of abuse or violence to others.

The Treatment:
Energy work can supply all the levels of the body with more life force energy to help heal the parts of the brain that are stressed and not working together properly.
This includes healing specific areas of the brain and the connection between these areas.
Energy work also helps the body address and release the stress and trauma accumulated in the organs and the senses.
Besides providing the body and mind with more energy to help itself heal, energy work can provide specific energy frequencies that change the frequencies of the stress.

This process involves raising the lower energy vibrations of the specific stress to a higher frequency - which then cancels and neutralizes the stressful energy.

Chris works on the physical body in all of these examples by focusing on the subtle body “copy” of that organ or part of the brain, cell, etc.

We are helping the body heal itself by removing impediments to that natural process.


Energy Work used for Space Clearing

This significantly improves the overall feel and living/workability of a building.

Energy clearing is needed when you feel that the place that you live or work in feels tight and stress-filled.

This works for every home/office/store/site that has dealt with:


• Divorce/Marital fighting              

• Alcoholism/other emotional and physical diseases
• Cancer 

• Auto-immune diseases                                      

• Bankruptcy or severe financial stress
• Alienation of affection                

• Loneliness
• Accidents                                   

• Severe damage

When we deal with life’s many issues, we emit stress into our environment, which accumulates quickly. It can become toxic and that often weakens your body. It can color your thinking and emotions.

Clearing/Cleansing is especially needed if the place has a history of marital fighting, death or grave illness. It’s also for a home office where you see clients who are stressed so the stress doesn’t impact family life.

This Includes:

Cleaning/Clearing to aid in home sales

Cleaning/Clearing a dwelling to make it a healthy environment

Cleaning/Clearing offices for smoother and more successful functioning

Cleaning/Clearing retail stores for improved sales

Cleaning/Clearing industrial sites for smoother functioning and safety

In each case, the Cleaning/Clearing removes old, stagnant and negative energies and stress and implants

new, clean, fresh, vibrant and positive energy.

If you are selling a house and want a new potential buyer to feel good and positive when they first walk into the house, energy cleaning/clearing can help enormously.


This work is usually done long distance and all that’s needed is the basic layout, size and brief history of the space. 
For home sellers or realtors, sending the listing is very helpful for the clearing process. 
For retailers, an overhead floor plan (if available) in PDF form is helpful as well as a few photos of the store. 
For offices of any type, an overhead floor plan plus an idea of what companies are on the other sides of the walls will be helpful.

Energy work for Animals  





I’ve worked with many animals who were in the last stages of their lives. My goal was to give them the best quality of life possible for whatever time they had left in their bodies. The feedback I received was that they all went back to their previous patterns including purring and tail-wagging. 

My experience is working with dogs and cats to give them a strong energy boost for healing.
This is especially useful when they are recuperating from an operation or have chronic health problems





Animals are more in touch with the healing process and react very well to energy healing.

They can become weak due to illness or old age, hindering their natural vibrant health and ability to heal themselves.

Secrets of Healing

Your body, mind and spirit heals you. Nobody else can.

The main cause of illness, whether mental or physical, is the accumulation of stress in the body.
Stress can block the natural flow of life energy within the body. Life energy is needed to maintain health in your entire body, ranging from your cells to your entire organ systems and body structure.

The body naturally throws off or neutralizes a certain amount of daily stress but for many people, stress accumulates and eventually overwhelms their systems.
An overwhelmed body may need some outside energy source to give it the power it needs to get back online and heal.

Energy Work can provide much of that needed energy to help your system balance itself. 
It can help “ jump start” your system.

A Brief View of What is Going On

The physical body gets its intelligence and most of its energy for growth and maintenance from the subtle energy levels of existence. These are: the etheric, astral (emotional), mental and causal bodies, which are as much a part of us as our physical body.

The etheric, astral, mental and causal bodies are overlaid on top of the physical body, meaning that they inhabit roughly the same space. These subtle levels of ourselves are the areas most affected by stress and trauma - both emotional and environmental. 

To not consider these subtle energy levels in the healing process is similar to a physicist ignoring the atomic level of existence that maintains and controls the gross physical level.

Once these areas are stressed and distorted, disease will eventually follow.

True and full healing needs to address not just the physical body but also healing and creating balance in these subtle levels of ourselves and the flow of life energy between them.

A Quick Explanation of Energy Work

Energy work is the process of accessing large amounts of life force energy so a person can use that energy to heal more effectively and restore the balance needed to maintain health.


It is applied to the subtle energy bodies of the individual where stress often accumulates.


The strength of the healing depends on the skill of the practitioner to access a wide variety of strong healing energies as well as the openness of the client to healing the issues involved at that time.


Energy work is most often short-term therapy, meaning many sessions are usually not needed for positive change.
The healing experience is usually one of rest and calmness during the session.


Long-Distance Healing and how it happens

I have been an energy worker since the late '80s. During that time I found ways to attune to  many hundreds of different healing energies. 

Your body intuitively knows exactly which energy I should use for each specific problem addressed.

I attune to your body’s intelligence and send the energy to your system going where your body directs.

Most of my work is done at a distance. Many of my clients are all over the US, Canada, Europe, and the Caribbean. Long-distance work has been found to be equally powerful as in-person work.


A long-distance session usually involves you calling at the appointment time. We then talk for several minutes about what is going on and what you would like to address, plus the history of the problem. You then hang up and lie down for about 30+ minutes after which time you can call me back and we can discuss what occurred.


In-person sessions are similar in structure.

If you are in the Portland, Oregon area and you want an in-person session, that can be easily arranged.




Case #1 T.S. was emotionally abused as a child. As a highly intelligent adult, she rarely felt competent in her life's pursuits. She also found that the past emotional abuse kept her from setting her life's goals (career and relationships) high enough to feel fulfilled when she achieved them. Energy Healing focused on helping her let go of the feelings of inferiority (stress congested liver) and to trust herself, the world, and to contact the reservoir of willpower inside her to achieve what she most wanted. The result was that she decided to go back to school to train in an occupation that she had desired since young adulthood but that she had been scared of trying. As she progressed, T.S. also found that she had enormous stamina, and felt confident and more relaxed on her path.

In her own words, "Chris, thank you for the work we've done. My career is finally on track."


Case #2 A.R. was a divorced mother of an eleven year old girl. She complained of intense digestive distress that was the result of the stress of co-parenting her daughter with her ex-husband. Energy Healing involved removing much of the anxiety and anger congested in the organs and also changing the energetic patterns between her and her ex-husband. One day, after several energy sessions, she found herself watching her daughter play sports when her ex sat down beside her. She found to her surprise that she was calm and that her ex-husband was friendly towards her. That was several years ago and she reports that the relationship between them remains amiable.

She says, "It's much easier dealing with him. There's so much less stress. I'm more relaxed and I feel a sense of relief."

Case #3 J.T. was married and feeling as if she and her husband were drifting apart. Intimacy had stopped and most daily interactions between spouses contained a strained, somewhat irritable quality. She felt as if it was only a matter of time before some big issue would explode the marriage and she was losing sleep worrying. Energy Therapy involved removing much of the anxiety and anger that was building up in J.T. Then, therapy focused on opening up and clearing the energetic connections between spouses especially in the areas of mental communication and heart connection (chakras 6 and 4 ). Following this treatment, J.T. found that she felt much closer to her husband and more willing to talk to him in a calm manner about their issues. She found that he also was feeling more relaxed and less irritable when they interacted. This led both of them to recommit to their marriage. This occurred several years ago and today they have a loving marriage and another child on the way.

She states, " I felt that working on this marriage was like facing an insurmountable mountain. After some energy sessions I was amazed to find that I was actually looking forward to being with my husband and working together to improve our relationship. We both feel closer than ever before. Thank you so much for the energy healing."

Case #4 K.A. had grown up with parents who were not loving and supportive. She married early and was divorced twice. She wanted a loving relationship with a man but could not seem to find the right one. The men she dated appeared shallow and critical. She finally stopped dating. She came into therapy for mild chronic depression, low energy, and an eating disorder. Therapy initially involved helping her discover some of the sources of her condition. Energetic connections between her parents and herself that were continuing to affect her self-awareness and behavior in a negative manner were removed. This had the effect of helping her to feel complete and "her own person" instead of the unloved child. She felt strong enough to let go of some of her pent-up sadness and frustration concerning her relationships with her parents and the past men in her life. After the healing sessions she felt more relaxed and stronger physically and emotionally. She was shown an easy technique to help her break impulsive eating habits and started to take care of her body and appearance. After several sessions she found that she felt much more comfortable around others and had attracted a really nice man into her life.

She said, " Thank you for this chance to really live my life. I didn't realize that there was such a simple way to change my bad patterns."

Case #5 T.R. had a great family and he liked his profession. His boss however really stressed him out. This person expected 110% all of the time and this played on T.R.'s need to overachieve and please those in authority. He found that the longer and harder he worked, his boss expected more and more. He didn't know how to create boundaries. The stress caused him to start smoking cigarettes again and to take out his frustration on his family. He also was feeling constant stomach irritation and was worried about getting an ulcer. Energy Therapy focused on helping him to discover the source of his need to overachieve and please authority. Energy therapy then helped to release his stress and balance his body. His stomach problem diminished and he was more calm and considerate of his family. He was also strong enough to politely confront his boss about work limits. To his surprise, due to his calmness and inner strength, the boss agreed with his work goals and appeared to have more reasonable expectations

He wrote, " I cannot believe the changes occurred so smoothly. Little things started to improve after the first session and after several sessions my life was back on track. Thank you for this help."

"I have found Chris to be the perfect blend of integrity and decency in his counseling and energy work. After coming out of a divorce there was a need to address some emotional issues that standard counseling would not have resolved. It has been my pleasure to have found such a good guide to assist me on my path in releasing old wounds which has allowed me to move forward with my life. I will always be grateful for his compassion and abilities and have highly recommended him to my friends. I have also called on him to assist my pets when it becomes clear that the issue is an emotional one and standard vet care does not have the answer."
