Restore balance back to your body using energy healing
WHAT IS ENERGY HEALING EXACTLY? CAN IT REALLY HELP US LIVE OUR BEST LIVES – AND WHAT DO ANGELS HAVE TO DO WITH IT? PHILIPPA PRENTICE FINDS OUT
If you listen very carefully to your heart and not your head, you might just hear the gentlest whisper of divine guidance. Then again, you might not, in which case, you could try visiting an energy healer. This was my experience when I went to visit Natalia Suvalko, a 32-year-old intuitive body specialist who helps people manage physical and emotional pain, restore balance to their bodies and live their best lives. Having studied nutrition, naturopathy and energy healing techniques, then graduated with a diploma in massage, Natalie says there’s a big need for massage for pain management, “but it’s also about dealing with the nitty gritty and getting down to a deeper level. On a physical level with massage, you’re rubbing to get deeper, and the same goes for energetic work. It’s like peeling back the layers of an onion and getting right down to the core – the soul.”

So what does energy healing involve? Natalia says, “We all have an energetic field around us and emotions can get trapped in it. When I touch someone, that’s what I’m picking up on. In an energy-balancing session, I get into a calm, meditative flow. I see and sense what clients are going through or what they’re holding on to – I feel their emotions and where the energetic blocks are in their body.” Natalia believes these blocks can cause pain, and stop us feeling balanced within ourselves. They manifest in our chakras – the energy centres that run through the body, top to toe. “It’s my job to release them so you can reconnect with your true self and live a pain-free, contented life,” tells Natalia. “By opening the chakras, deep transformation can begin, allowing energy to flow freely through you, leaving you powered up with vitality.” On a deeper level, Natalia says she draws on spiritual information too. “If there is a message from your angels, guides or a loved one who’s gone, they might show me something I’m able to pick up on,” she says. “It’s something I can’t explain but is definitely an extra bonus in your energy or massage session with me!” Recipients say there are physical signs an energetic block is shifting too. You might have the urge to cough, burp or cry; feel nauseous, frustrated or a sense of floating; have memory flashes or a gurgling stomach. Sometimes the physical symptoms come through to Natalia, who’ll cough or burp herself. She says she knows when things have shifted because her hands feel the warmth and energy circulating from the chakras.
So what kind of issues do people use energy healing to treat? “I see people who are suffering from anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue or addiction, people who are sad, emotionally fragile or withdrawn, can’t seem to attract the right relationship, are feeling lost or overwhelmed, are highly stressed or experiencing unexplained pain,” says Natalia. “These are the types of people who benefit. There may be something there that needs to be cleared, a lesson that needs to be recognised and worked on to push you in a different direction.”
