Although most energy healing sessions are provided in the practitioner's physical presence, distant healing, also known as remote healing, long distance healing and absent healing has been practiced in the Far East for centuries. In more modern times, many modalities of distant healing are being recognized and practiced in the West. For a variety of reasons (serious illness, difficulty in traveling, distance, frequent sessions, etc.) it is possible for the practitioner to give a very effective and beneficial distance healing treatment to a client from a distance - even from thousands of miles away.
Distance treatments are conducted in a similar manner to in-person sessions. The main difference is the amount of dialoguing that occurs.
Sessions can be administered by Skype or by phone.
