Sandy has been doing energy work intuitively since she was a child and is a licensed reiki practitioner. Reiki means ‘universal life force energy,’ and its practice originated in Japan in the early 19th Century. It became commonly practiced in North America during the late 20th century. A reiki treatment simply involves the placement of the practitioner's hands over areas of dis-ease on the patient, with the intent of bringing the healing ‘universal life force energy’ to them. This enables the flow of universal energy that helps reduce pain and illness, while enhancing your sense of well being, balance, and complete harmony. Sandy is also trained and experienced as a healing touch practitioner and is a licensed reflexologist”;

"feng shui means 'wind and water,' and is an ancient Chinese practice that aims to maximize the beneficial movement of qi (the life force present in all things) through a space [...] in order to harness beneficial qi from one's surroundings [...] feng shui, often called the art of placement, is also called 'the art of flow.' Feng shui practitioners believe that qi wants to flow. When qi is blocked or weak, an individual may feel tired, depressed or unable to focus. In contrast, feng shui practitioners describe the overabundance of qi as similar to a hurricane or flood";

"homeopathic remedies work by stimulating the body's own healing power, by presenting the 'whole picture' to the body’s healing vital force. The vital force is organized and many complaints heal themselves unaided. However, when the healing process is faulty, blocked or slow, the homeopathic remedy acts as a stimulus to the curative powers of the body";

[in "What is a Luck Dragon?" (2011)]
.
"naturopathic medicine is founded on the idea of a healing force of nature, or vis, which resides within every living thing. In Chinese medicine this could be compared to qi, the focus of Chinese medicine being the cultivation, preservation and restoration of the smooth flow of qi [...] this healing force [...is like] a mythical creature, a luck dragon, which can’t be seen or touched, yet promotes our growth, healing and regeneration [...] this force [...] this vis working to protect our body and enable our healing defenses. We each have our own luck dragon! Within each of us is an individual life force [...] preservation of this vis requires careful, conscious medicine that works to support the luck dragon, rather than suppressing the protective life force of the body. Luck dragon medicine is the medicine that works to cultivate the life force within the body. Naturopathic medicine is a medicine that works to preserve and support the luck dragon to prevent dis-ease and promote lasting health [...] through naturopathic medicine patient and practitioner work to support the vis, to encourage the unique, individual luck dragon in each of us. The naturopathic practitioner works to educate and to empower the patient to understand how they can work to support their own luck dragon.  If we look at it this way, naturopathic medicine could then can be seen as teaching the care and feeding of your luck dragon";

"the focus in acupuncture is to restore healthy movement of energy or qi. The practitioner will assess through questioning, observation and palpation where the movement of qi is obstructed or impeded. Treatment is focused on removing blockages, expelling pathogens, and restoring the flow of qi or vital force, thereby supporting the body’s inherent ability to heal itself. The Chinese medicine practitioner uses small, sterile, disposable needles for acupuncture. They also use techniques such as cupping and moxibustion to affect or improve qi flow in the body. They can use acupressure instead of acupuncture for patients who are concerned about needles";

"the Chinese texts describe channels of energy, called meridians, that flow throughout the body in regular patterns, a system similar to the circulatory system or the nervous system. These meridians have corresponding parts of the body in different organ systems. Flowing through these meridians is qi (pronounced chee), or energy. Qi is the fundamental concept behind the Chinese and Eastern justification for the function of acupuncture. Acupuncture stimulates the vital force of the body, balancing the qi by working with the meridians of the body. Disease, defined in acupuncture as the imbalance in the flow of qi, may result from blockage of the meridians or a deficiency of energy. The goal of the treatment is to balance any disharmonies within the body and restore the vital force or qi to an optimum level";

"because symptoms are seen as an attempt by the body to heal itself, the action of the medicine stimulates the patient’s vital force to complete the healing reaction [...] naturopathic physicians also may perform acupuncture to treat the symptoms of MS. Acupuncture works on the premise that there’s a stagnant flow of energy throughout the body. This stagnant flow of energy contributes to the symptoms experienced by the MS patient and to the formation of plaques found in the myelin sheath of the nerves. Acupuncture is also a vitalistic therapy in that it stimulates the body’s own healing power";

When we are ill, we experience a disruption in our vital force which presents as the signs and symptoms of illness [...] a lower energy state [...] upon restoration of health, the person feels better because a higher level of energy has come back. It is through stimulation of the vital force that the body is learning to respond to those things which we have come to identify as producing disease";

If the flow of qi along these meridians is blocked or unbalanced, illness can occur. Causes of qi imbalance involve external forces - such as wind, cold, or heat; internal forces -such as emotions of joy, anger, or fear; lifestyle factors - such as poor diet, too little sleep, or too much alcohol [...] practitioners claim the radiant heat and herbal effect produced by moxibustion penetrates deeply into the body, warming and restoring the balance and flow of vital life force - qi [...] external qi gong is practiced by a qi gong master who uses his or her hands with the aim to project qi to others for the purpose of healing [...] medical qi gong involves working directly and subtly with a person's qi in ways that are safe and non-invasive";
