Next time you have a massage, some kind of beauty therapy, or a dental or medical treatment, spare a thought for all the people who have been on that treatment couch before you. Why? Because mingling with your energy at that moment will be all the residues of the energy they have left behind them in that place. You may not want to know this, but it’s true.
What happens energetically
Take the example of a massage, where the idea is for you to open your energy as much as possible to the therapist so they can work with you as deeply as they can. When you get up off their couch, if they have done their job well, you will feel lighter and freer.
And guess what has happened to all the stuff you were carrying that made you feel so tense? You’ve left it behind in the room, and especially in the couch. If the therapist doesn’t know how to handle these energies, you may also have left some of it in them. Then in comes the next client and lies down in your freshly excreted etheric debris, and the imprints of all the clients before you. It’s no wonder that so many massage therapists suffer periodic burn-outs, and no wonder you sometimes get off the couch feeling worse in some ways than when you went in.
Dentists’ chairs are a more extreme version of this because they also become imprinted with anxiety and fear. And the seats in a dentist’s waiting room have this too. If you weren’t afraid before you went in, it’s likely you soon will be after you sit down.
What can you do about this?
Well, it’s the therapist’s job to take care of their space, to create an environment that is energetically clear, that supports not only the healing process of their clients or patients but also helps the therapist themselves. Regular space clearing of a therapy room means that the room handles all the gunk so that the therapist and their clients or patients don’t have to.
So next time you go for a health or beauty treatment of some kind, ask the beautician or therapist, ‘When did you last space clear this room?’ The word needs to go out. Space clearing technology exists. We don’t have to put up with grungy massage couches or therapy rooms any more!
And by space clearing, do I mean waving smudge sticks around or visualizing pyramids of light, as someone suggested to me recently? In my experience, such techniques don’t make any difference at all to the energy of a space. What I mean by space clearing is the specific 21-step ceremony that I described in my book, Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui, and that I will be explaining in much more detail in the new space clearing book I am writing. There will also be a chapter in the new book specifically for therapists.
For spas and health centres that employ a number of therapists, it works best to call in one of the professional space clearers I’ve trained to give the whole place a thorough clearing a few times a year.
