About Energy Work
Everything is made of energy. For thousands of years, shamans and healers have known about its existence, how it flowed around the body and what an impact it could have on the physical and emotional well being of a person. This energy flow has been described using a variety of names such as prana, life force, chi, chakras, and aura.
Healers and shamans knew intuitively that if this energy flow somehow became blocked or stagnant, it could create physical, emotional or spiritual un-wellness or dis-ease in the body. Clearing the blocked energy, using various techniques, allowed the body to do what it does naturally – return to balance which resulted in healing or wellness for the client. Today we call this “Energy Work”.
Practitioners of energy work are now referred to as healers, shamans, energy medicine practitioners or energy workers, just to name a few. They use various techniques to find where the energy of the body is blocked and then clear it thereby allowing the body energy to flow freely and rebalance. This is referred to in energy work as “balancing”. Balancing the energy field helps create healing.
Energy Work is not invasive, and works with the entire body – physically, emotionally and spiritually. Clients lie on a massage table, fully clothed. The body is gently touched with the practitioner’s hands. If you would like to know more, please watch the video of an energy session posted here.
It is understandable if you are skeptical about energy work and its effectiveness. Clients often remark, “How could something so simple, be so effective, so quickly?” That’s all right. I encourage you to be skeptical. Ask questions and be curious. It all helps to make you a more informed consumer.
To help you understand what energy work is and is not, I wrote Following Body Wisdom: How Energy Work Can Help Heal (2009). It is available on my website, Amazon and Indigo. This comprehensive book explains the principles of energy work, what to expect in a session and what to expect after the session is over. The book also includes the personal stories of clients who have undergone major shifts in their lives as a result of receiving energy work. Each client has graciously agreed to share their personal experiences so that others could understand the power and effectiveness of this work.
A client once said to me: “I don’t know what you do, and I don’t care because it’s helping and I feel better. I don’t need a scientist to tell me what works for me.” Energy Work does not replace traditional medicine; it is not the be all and end all. However, it is a modality that can help.

Important Appointment Information
When booking appointments, there are three different treatment options:
1) In office; 2) Distance; 3) Distance Call.
Please inform us which treatment option you would like when booking your appointment(s), and please note a first appointment will be 45 minutes to one hour and each subsequent appointment will be anywhere from 5 minutes to 20 minutes, depending on what the body can handle during the session.
- In-Office Appointment. Come in for your scheduled time. Please make yourself comfortable in the waiting room. Some clients like to book a series of appointments for the day (to a maximum of 4 per day with 1 hour between appointments). Clients are welcome to sit in the waiting room or return for the next appointment. Near the Centre there are a couple of excellent restaurants and two parks – Goldie Mill and Exhibition Park.
- Distance. If you live far away or simply are not available to come in, I work on you energetically at the appointed time and contact you by phone or email later that day to discuss what came up during your session. If you would like to have anything in particular addressed, please call or email the office before your designated time and leave a message with my staff. Clients that request distance appointments are asked to not drive or operate equipment during the scheduled time.
- Distance Call. This another option if you are not available to come into the office for any reason. Call the office at the scheduled time and we do a distance session together over the telephone. At the appointed time, let the phone ring about three times; if the office does not pick up, hang up, wait 5 min. and call again (we are on another call).
If you choose the distance call option we ask that you be sitting or lying down in a quiet location during the session. Have Kleenex, water, pen & paper handy. Also, ensure that you will not be disturbed. Please be prepared to focus and do not eat, watch TV or use a computer during the session.
Energy work may bring on a “clearing”, where symptoms sometimes reappear before they are released. This may happen within 1-2 days; do not be alarmed. Be gentle with yourself. If you would like to know more about Energy Work, read “Following Body Wisdom: How Energy Work Helps Heal”.
All methods of treatment are equally effective. There is no obligation as to which method you choose or how often you come. I am here to assist you on your healing journey.

– What people are saying about Atherton –
While travelling in an RV in the Rockies, I decided to do a distance healing with Atherton. I was very skeptic about the process but very curious whether I would feel any better. I was not told when Atherton would be working on me that day.
I made lunch for my husband and myself and after eating, I made note of the time as I began to feel much better. My husband, who I had decided not to tell, even noticed and commented that I looked better and that I must have needed to eat.
I checked my email a couple of hours later and was shocked to see that the time I had noted (taking into account the time zones) was indeed the exact time I had noted earlier. I would not have thought it possible to cross the distance with healing but I absolutely know now it was Atherton.
I wanted to let you know the progress we’ve seen recently, due to your help. The headaches I’ve attributed to sinus problems for 25 years have completely stopped. You cannot imagine how my life has improved now that I’m not living with chronic pain. Even other energy work has not been able to get to the bottom of it, but yours did.
My husband says that his obsessive compulsive “stuff” is slowly getting better. Your insights into his past emotional & spiritual problems are helping him look at his life and his own actions in different way.
Your suggestions of changing our beliefs about our lives are starting to change things for the better. Thank you so much for your caring and your skillful healing work. With your help we are better now.

“The quality of the service you provide is outstanding. The environment is professional, courteous, and efficient. I continue to support this approach to healing by recommending Atherton to everyone. Thanks to all of you for making our journey an exciting, and ever-growing experience.”
– The Collins family
“Atherton is the first person of contact when I am sad, upset, feeling ill or need assistance in reading or understanding the messages my body sends me.
Since my treatment for breast cancer in 2002 I have an improved and renewed spirit and a respect and wonderful awareness of my body. I now know how to listen to it and understand it’s messages. I no longer take it for granted.
All this and more I owe to Atherton, I thank you for all that for being the messenger, I hear my angels laughter. ”
– Thank you, June
“I really don’t know how this healing works but it does. I usually walk out knowing something more about myself or me in a larger healing context. I have found the treatments invaluable in helping me to maintain and improve my health.”
– G. Perin
“Atherton has been a very important member of my health care team for years. She has helped me overcome many physical/medical challenges. Of greatest value to me was her assistance in achieving a healthy pregnancy & delivery.
Atherton provides not only healing services, she has challenged me to look deep inside myself & develop inner wisdom and faith in myself. She has also played an important role in helping my infant son have an easy, peaceful delivery, good digestion and sleep.”
How many of us are guilty of saying this? Have you ever wondered what purpose guilt serves? When you think about it and I seriously mean, really think about it, guilt has no positive outcome for the person who feels guilty. It only benefits the person we believe we need to protect from suffering.More
Did you know that this phrase actually started out as a joke?
“A guest who checked into an inn one night was warned to be quiet because the guest in the room next to his was a light sleeper. As he undressed for bed, he dropped one shoe which, sure enough, awakened the other guest…”
