My Status and Scope of Practice

Hello, my name is Leigh Ann Lipscomb and I am both a Certified Resonance Repatterning practitioner and a Shamanic Energy Medicine practitioner. Both of these methods are gentle energy-based approaches to health and healing that can assist in bringing a body to its natural ability to heal. I do not diagnose or treat disease and I am not a physician. These sessions are not a substitute for diagnosis or treatment from a qualified health practitioner for illnesses, injuries, or other medical conditions. My services are not licensed by the State of California. My practice is guided by the Code of Ethics of the Energy Medicine Professional Association.

Basic Description of Resonance Repatterning

Resonance Repatterning is a system by which the subconscious patterns that contribute to a problem we are facing are identified by muscle-checking. The problem and the associated, underlying subconscious patterns are released with any of a number of modalities including, but not limited to, color therapy, visualizations, acupressure, cranial sacral, sound healing, movement, and many others. All sessions are unique for the client and the particular issues he or she is facing.

Basic Description of Shamanic Energy Medicine

Shamanic Energy Medicine involves upgrading the quality of the luminous energy field (we all have one) by removing imprints of trauma and disease. By doing this we create the conditions for health.

Description of a Session

During a session (the average is about 90 minutes), muscle-checking will be used along with client preference to determine whether Resonance Repatterning or Shamanic Energy Medicine is the best approach to be used for the client's issues. Shamanic Energy Healing, and some Resonance Repatterning sessions, include light physical touch. Resonance Repatterning sessions involve the identification of sub-conscious patterns related to a client's issues. Clients have many different responses to the sessions. Some feel relaxed and others feel nothing at all. Others describe sensations of moving energy, deep relaxation, feelings of being supported and nurtured, or visions of images and colors. Some clients experience an emotional release such as tears or laughter; some have what they consider to be a spiritual experience or they may develop insight into specific areas of their lives.

Benefits

Recent research suggests that both modalities are effective for relaxation, stress reduction, and increasing one 's sense of vitality. Clients typically report feeling relaxed and often report an increased sense of well-being and peace. Many have reported positive experiences that have helped them better cope with illnesses, medical protocols for treatment of medical conditions and depression but I can make no specific claims regarding the results you may experience.
