Spiritual healing and energy work are not a substitute for traditional medical and/or psychiatric treatment. If you have a serious health issue or mental disorder, please see a doctor, psychiatrist, or other appropriate professional, and make complementary/holistic healing part of a complete health care program.

Your energy WILL shift as you spend time and/or experience services at s.a.n.c.t.u.a.r.y™ however the results and “outcome” will not be linear and will not always make logical sense. You may well get the results that you are seeking as many report that they do, however if you’re the kind of person who requires concrete proof and/or you think you will be dissatisfied unless you are absolutely guaranteed a specific outcome, then seeking alternative/energy therapies and experiences may not be for you.

For the best results, it’s important to be open-minded and unattached to specific results. Energy work requires that you let go of needing a specific outcome in order to receive the outcome you need most. With consistency, focus, and a commitment to your well-being, you will likely notice improvements in many areas of your life – and thankfully not only to the ones at the conscious level…
