Healing - Frequently Asked Questions
What is Healing?
Healing is a non-intrusive series of light touch or no touch hand positions, linking the self-healing ability of the body to the healing power of the one universal energy source
How does Healing work?
Lisa attunes to both the patient and the healing energies. There is no need for manipulation or the removal of clothing.Healing goes beyond securing physical improvement. The purpose is to aid health through balancing and harmonising mind, body and spirit, the three elements of your being.
How can Lisa help?
Have healing on a regular basis, and realise that very often, health or illness is influenced by the mind. Your thoughts can either help or hinder the smooth working of your body. Old grievances, guilt complexes, resentments, fears or other harmful emotions can be the cause of ill health. Try to release them. Forgive those who have upset you. Accept your circumstances without resentment. If you have problems of this nature, discuss them with Lisa.
How long should I continue with Healing Therapies?Sometimes healing is successful in one treatment. Far more often the results appear gradually. Please do not get discouraged or give up in the early stages. It is rare to receive healing and not benefit,more than one session is advisable.
Can I receive Healing at home?
Yes. Just ask Lisa and she will arrange this for you.
Do I have to have a belief system to effectively receive healing?
You don’t have to have any form of religious beliefs to benefit from any of my Healing Therapies. They all support good health and wellbeing in your everyday life whatever you believe or don’t believe. Animals and small children have no religious views at all and they receive effective healing sometimes faster than adults.
What do I do and will I feel anything?
During the healing treatment relax as much as possible. Lisa will help you with this process, whilst also making sure you are comfortable. Have an open mind. A positive attitude will help the healing process. You may feel warmth or coldness emanating from Lisa’s hands, or perhaps a slight tingling or trembling, or nothing at all. You are likely to feel peace and calm enveloping you as the treatment progresses. At the end of the session, I aim for my patients to feel relaxed, restored and have an easing of any pain.
Are patient records kept?
My Code of Conduct and Professional Indemnity Insurance conditions demand that I do so. A brief account of your condition is recorded and progress reports are made at each subsequent visit. These records are confidential and accessible only to Lisa, the patient or in a Court of Law. Lisa will always keep records in a safe, secured place i.e. a locked stationary box.

What about my Doctor?
No person, doctor or healer can guarantee to cure illness and our Code of Conduct forbids us to claim that a cure can be affected. Healing is not a substitute for orthodox medical treatment; it is complementary. You should continue to consult your doctor – and we would like you to mention that you are receiving healing. Explain that it stimulates the natural self-healing forces of the body and does not interfere with medical treatment.
Two further elements of the Code of Conduct relate specifically to the relationship between you and your doctor -
- A healer must always ask whether you have consulted a doctor about your medical condition and formally advise you to do so if you have not.
- A healer is forbidden to diagnose or countermand the advice or medical treatment prescribed by your doctor.
A growing number of doctors nowadays refer their patients to a healer or have them working in their practices. The Patient’s Charter will support you if you ask your doctor to refer you to a healer. You may request a healer to visit you in hospital.
How can I be sure Lisa is registered and qualified?
Ask Lisa if she is a member of any healing association. Ask her for her current membership identity card. This proof will assure you that Lisa is fully trained and will be working to a mandatory Code of Conduct and will carry Third Party and Professional Indemnity Insurance cover. This is your safeguard that Lisa is registered with BAHA and UK Healers, under Balen’s Insurance.
