Subtle Energies Require Subtle Medicine

Subtle energies require subtle medicine… One of the most effective tools in clearing traumatic energy is also one of the strangest for modern scientific minds to accept. Native Americans have been using sage, sweetgrass, and cedar in smudging ceremonies for thousands of years and have passed their knowledge along to modern healers… If I could use only one alternative-healing modality in my practice, this would be it. It is simple and benign, and people can get instant relief from their distressing symptoms. – Susan Pease Banitt
