Frequent Questions:

Are we online?

No during the remote sessions we are NOT online.We meet energetically.

How many sessions do I need?

I recommend to start with a set of 3 to 6 sessions
In one session a lot of energy is moved, however it needs more sessions for the old patterns to clear and the new ones to settle. We can create, together, a healing plan to better support you, no matter if you simply want a few sessions to help you deal with an acute pain, stress, situation or emotional issue, or if you are dealing with chronic illness, fatigue, depression, anxiety, sleeping problems or trauma, and need long term healing. It is also important not to rush and to allow time for integration and embodiment. 

I usually speak with clients via email, before and after a treatment, to check in with symptoms and see how you feel after and to give my feedback from the session. I sometimes check in between sessions to see how you're doing. I prefer email as there is less pressure for both the client and myself. Some people like to share, others prefer a more discreet approach. I respect and accept each individual, all treatments and information shared is completely confidential and handled with care.

What are the benefits of distant treatments?

READ EXCERPTS FROM CLAUDIA's Book and her notes on distant healing

The gift

"One year after the beginning of the pandemic I had given over 100 individual distant treatments, and then started to offer it to small groups, with consistent results. I found the distant healing incredibly effective. I could tune into people’s soul and energy directly, through a process of deep presence. They could feel it wherever they were in the world and they could heal. 

When I re-read my notes of the Shamanic journey that I told you about earlier, things fell into place. At the time, when I first received the knowing, it felt enigmatic and mysterious. When the pandemic started, the words became clearer and I understood I had been developing skills and learning new healing tools exactly for this time. The depths of stillness allowed me to receive the gift. "Healing is perhaps the greatest gift that can be desired. The desire to heal is a natural talent. It is contended that our hands possess no healing qualities of themselves, and that we use our hands as part of our minds to express the healing intention." 

I was touched by these words by British healer Harry Edwards (1893-1976), who discovered his talents as a healer during World War I, when helping his fellow soldiers in the battlefield. After this he continued offering healing with thousands of requests for hands-on healing, and Absent healing (at the distance) dedicating the rest of his life to the healing arts. He founded the Healing Sanctuary, in the village of Shere, Surrey, in 1946, when the family escaped the bombings in London. 

"Generally speaking, all who inwardly feel for those who suffer, may possess the healing potential, and absent healing is often the way through which the gift is awakened and developed. Absent healing is, as the name implies, healing from a distance. It may be that absent healing is thought by some people to be the Cinderella of healing, something that is not so realistic as contact healing, possibly because it seems more abstract and less tangible than the personal contact with a patient. I assert this is a mistaken idea; absent healing is very real, and as effective as contact healing – in many cases, more so."

When I learned Enkaku Reiki (distant reiki), energy clearing and biofield tuning, I could not yet imagine a pandemic would come. Now I understand that these were stepping-stones for the gift. With the out break of covid, the pandemic and social distancing, what was a whisper became a clear intention: "You will be working with the invisible. Direct mind connection is your focus. People will be dispersed. For you to help them you must establish direct mind connection. This way you will heal their body and their soul. You have been practising invisibility, now you will be physically remote. You should not attempt to look at the invisible energy by applying the same notions of matter. You will develop a new seeing. The nature around you will help you.”

Soon I joined a project as a volunteer to offer distant reiki to NHS staff to support doctors and nurses on the front lines, working in hospitals, in difficult and traumatizing conditions, and dealing with burnout. Perhaps the part of my soul who was a nurse and died in the Spanish Flu pandemic, was also being healed through this work and wanted to heal others in similar conditions. I was humbled by the force of this call and accepted it with an open heart and deep compassion. We worked as a team of 8 reiki practitioners sending reiki at the same time, for 4 days in a row.

But besides my clear intention to offer the healing gift, I noticed the mistrust of energy work, in particular being done remotely, and not many people signed up for it in the beginning. Western mainstream medicine continues a materialistic approach focusing only on the body and looks into physical symptoms individually, without connection with other symptoms, or the person’s life, environment and situation, and without considering the personality, mental health, trauma, not to mention soul, spirit and energy. To change this ingrained mind set is still challenging for most people.

I treated a variety of conditions, such as covid symptoms, physical pain, anxiety, depression and trauma. I noticed how each treatment was so unique. I applied a variety of techniques I have learned, while following my intuition, sensibility and my empathic abilities. I feel the energy and transmute it through my body. Having practised a wide range of healing modalities, I bring the essence of the Japanese healing arts such as shiatsu, reiki, jin shin jyutsu, and Chinese medicine, with energy medicine and somatic trauma healing, in an holistic way, treating body, soul and energetic field, to support people to reconnect with the essence of themselves and to heal deeply.

In these sessions we are not online, there is no technology involved. I prepare the room as if the person is here and I work with an energetic hologram. A hologram is a quantum field property of energy. By projecting the hologram on my massage table within certain coordinates, I can, physically sense the energy through my hands, and the energy I give can travel from one place to another. The hologram is created and linked to the person receiving the healing through a series of multiple layers based on patterns and electromagnetic energy.

"Quantum physics teaches us that quantum particles are also waves that travel over a very large region of space. The idea that something is both a form confined to a small region of space and simultaneously a wave spread out over a very large region of space is counter-intuitive. For this reason we tend to identify with form and distance. A radio or television station (or wi-fi) can be thousands of miles away, and we can tune into it without thinking about the distance. In a similar way, we can tune into a person through resonance. Quantum physicists call the property of tuning into phenomena at a distance 'non-locality'. The term refers to the ability of a quantum entity such as an electron to influence another quantum particle instantaneously over any distance." (in Human Tuning, by John Beaulieu)

Quantum physics is not a new concept, however the use of its notions for healing is still quite new and revolutionary. I could sense how distortions and clutter in the body and the biofield create patterns and structures that influence people (and places) negatively creating illness, anxiety, and pain. The interaction with these subtle energies allows biological and physical responses, and if done consistently, leads to healing.

I work with the hologram in slightly different ways, in individual and group sessions. When the hydrangeas blossomed I found in this flower a simple image and metaphor to explain, to my first group, how the hologram works. The hydrangeas are large flowers made of many small flowers to create a circular shape. She spoke to me and I made a flower essence with it, which I took in preparation to this healing.

The hydrangea flower is like the hologram. It holds all the individual flowers into unity. The whole flower brings together all aspects, of all the flowers that are part of it, into harmony and centre, by releasing and transforming.

I always take the time to attune and prepare my body and energy before each treatment, through meditation, breath work and other practices. It's like preparing a sacred ceremony. I create a safe space and take a long time in this preparation to become a vessel, a hollow bone, and be open to the universal energy and ki to pass through me.

The method of distant reiki that I practice, was used in Japan during the World War II when men were sent to war, and women, at home, would send reiki to their husbands, brothers, fathers and sons in the battlefield. By feeling the Byosen they also would know if they were alive. I took this story as an inspiration as it gave me the understanding of the profound grief that is upon us, as well as the solidarity, care, healing and love needed in this moment in history and planetary consciousness. This time the men did not get sent to a battlefield, instead we were all asked to stay home, to be quiet and alone. Physical distance was again part of the process.

To introduce tuning forks as a sound healing tool brought a new dimension to my treatments. For thousands of years, sound has been used to treat illness and bring a state of calm, ecstasy and transformation. It has been used to bring individuals and communities into harmony, regulating the nervous system and balancing dissonance.

A tuning fork is a resonator that emits a pure musical tone through vibration. Traditionally it was used to tune musical instruments, such as a guitar. However the tuning forks used for healing are different and many different sound frequencies can be used. But the principle of tuning through sound vibration and resonance to bring coherence and harmony is similar. Tuning forks can be used on the body (in person) by touch and pressure on shiatsu points, muscles and joints, for example, or to clear energy patterns on the biofield (in person and remotely). I also use them as a self care practice on myself. In a physical treatment, the sound vibration applied to the body will stimulate the area, relaxing it, reducing pain, balancing the nervous system and increasing nitric oxide which reduces tension, creating deep relaxation and regulating the immune system. Fascinated by these new healing tools and concepts, I researched the origins of it. Dr John Beaulieu, is the pioneer of healing with tuning forks. He explains how he discovered that the tuning forks could tune the human nervous system.

Biofield tuning, the method created by Eileen McKusick (my teacher) about 25 years ago, also uses tuning forks, but it is somehow different, as it works, not directly on the body, but on the biofield, the energetic field around the body. The biofield has a toroid shape, going around the body, like a bubble, and passing through the middle channel in the spine. Through her work and research, Eileen found out that the energy field around the body carries an imprint of our entire lives, since gestation and birth, until our present life, a bit like the rings of a tree or a vinyl record. Memories, emotions, patterns and trauma, are stored on the biofield and fragments of stuck energy create distortions in the field. These distortions are unconscious for the most part, but have direct implications in our health and how we run our lives, the relational patterns we fall into, the tensions and diseases that manifest in the physical body. Like in a broken record, patterns of dissonance and trauma might be playing on repeat. Eileen created an anatomy map of the biofield to map out these frozen emotions in different areas of the human biofield. The work is done by using the tuning forks to clear the fragments of frozen energy, tune and harmonize the field and brings the new coherence into the central line.

I found this work to be very effective in trauma healing. With trauma, the mind might forget, but the frozen memory remains in the body and in the energetic field. If the energy is frozen we cannot heal and move forward, the energy needs to be released and integrated in the body. If we put a seed on ice it won’t grow. We must first melt the ice to bring the seed into fertile soil. Biofield tuning can melt the ice through sound vibration. By clearing the noise and distortions in the signal, allowing the body to harmonize with its own resonance, the energy flows freely in a healthy manner bringing more harmony, freedom and vitality to one's life. We tune the body and the nervous system to the poetry of its own music.

Through [this] personal experience of self-healing, I discovered holistic medicine in new ways, as I felt a new level of awareness and embodiment. Body, mind, emotions, energy are not separate. And we are not separate from our environment, from the Earth, from nature, from each other, from our soul, from the cosmic universal energy, the ki that runs through us. It is essential at this time of global pandemics, climate change, illness and collective trauma to take a new approach based on connection and unity, understanding interdependency as the very foundation of life. I believe that the medicine of the future must be whole, not only within our own organism, but must include the health of the Earth, animals, rivers, oceans, land, soil, and all beings. To me, this is the true essence of holistic medicine.


I was happy to hear my teacher Thomas Hübl explaining the healing process in a class, which resonated completely with this work. He said: "Healing is updating our experience. The fragmented parts of past experience and trauma are re-integrated into the central line, into the flow of life. When we are immersed in the flow of vital energy, the tension in the body disappears, the split of emotions disappears. Healing and integration benefit my life in every way, because the stress is reduced, there is an expansion of presence and potential." That was what I was doing in these new distant treatments. 

I was bringing back the fragments of the soul, bringing them back into the flow of life. And with this, the physical and emotional pain, tension and illness dissipated. I was seeing it again and again. I noticed how I was indeed bringing a safe hands approach allied with direct mind connection. Through developing this work it became clearer that the healer's work is this understanding of heart, body, soul and energy and its interconnectedness, through the intuitive perception, this seeing how things really are. The energy doesn't lie. 

I also see how my long-term practice of bodywork, healing touch, Taoism, Zen and meditation, appear in my gentle approach, this way of 'not-doing', this patience and sensitivity. And then to cut through, like a sword, into the root, the essence of things. 

This ability to listen to the person's soul and their deepest pain, with discernment and depth, while being in direct contact with their energy, with awareness, presence, non-judgement, compassion and care, brings a quality to the healing in which the work is done on the mind-body-soul-energy unity, which allows for a sense of wholeness. I believe this is what manifests the healing experience. Either I am working on clearing a pattern, on an electrical fluctuation, a particular organ, an energy centre, a meridian, or the nervous system, the focus of my touch - on the body or at the distance - is always in the deepest wholeness, the soul. When the person feels seen in their deeper truth, the healing happens. This is really the greatest gift.
