Ruth Tozer; Reiki, Ayurvedic, Healing Touch
My name is Ruth Tozer and I am an energy therapist. After working in the social work field for 10 years, I made a huge leap into the fitness field.
The fitness field leap continues on as I am in my 35th year teaching fitness classes, yoga and doing personal training. I have frequently laughed to myself at how my social work training has been so useful with fitness class members.
During my yoga training in the early 2000’s, I was introduced to energy work. I was awed and amazed at what I sensed in the energy fields of other people. I immediately went into extensive training with Reiki and Pranic (Ayurvedic) Healing. Healing Touch Program was my next endeavor. I am currently a Healing Touch Practitioner Apprentice. My most recent educational efforts have taken place over many years within Free Spirit School in Butler, WI.
What is energy work, you ask? Clients are dressed, lying on a massage table or sitting in a chair. Through various techniques, either hands on or hands off the body, the energy worker centers and rebalances the energy field (your aura) of the body. Chakras (energetic wheels of energy) are opened and connected to assist in the healing of an individual. I believe that many physical problems are due to emotional distress that we carry in our body, often the fascia or connective tissue. When the body calms and relaxes with energy therapy, pain is released and it has the opportunity to heal.
It is my intention to help people feel physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually better. Energy work is useful in promoting healing and can be used in conjunction with chiropractic and physical therapy. It is non-invasive and addresses issues of inflammation, pain, depression, pre/post operative care and end of life care. In addition to the energy work, most clients leave with growth work to do until the next session. Growth work assists in the gradual progression of healing. It is a way for each client to assist in taking responsibility for their own healing.
During the early part of my treatment for lymphoma, I had a significant amount of edema in my left leg. Ruth worked on that edema every day for a week. By the end of the week, the edema was gone and it did not return. It was great to get my leg back to normal and without anything but her work.
As part of my battle with lymphoma I had several sessions of chemotherapy. After each session, Ruth worked on me. I believe that her working on me was the reason I did not need to use the nausea medicine I was given if the chemo made me nauseous. Client--- CW
I have been seeing Ruth Tozer for almost five years. Originally it was for generally better health. Later it was to help me safely postpone needed surgery. She then worked on me in the hospital after the surgery and has continued to work on me during recovery. Now she works from home helping me stay healthy during these trying covid-19 times. I’m really thankful to have her ongoing help and expertise. Client---SW
Ruth is a master healer. I left every session energized and calm. Ruth reinforced my intuition about what I needed. She taught me how to do my own energy work between our sessions. Client---MH
