Energy Healing is a category of healing arts that can help with many mysterious complaints for which there are no names in Western medicine, but which are very real in the traditional medicine of India, China, and Japan.  They have to do with getting the energy in your body back into balance following trauma, surgery, or illness, even losing a long-time friend to death or divorce.

In 2003, she caught a cold, and was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (also known as Myalgic Encephalopathy or ME_ – from one day to the next. She was deeply emotionally, physically and mentally exhausted, and that just wasn’t going to go away quickly.

For the next three years, she was in what one of her clients calls the "hell of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / ME." She had to be careful about everything she did. "I couldn’t listen to the radio or music or watch television, as it tired me out; I could only go outside for a short time – and once a day at the most; I had to be careful about the number of people I talked to in a day (a short telephone conversation could tire me out), and I missed out on the very early years of my two lovely nieces. I had a continual what I called “brain fog” which meant it was hard to concentrate on anything – reading, writing, or adding up numbers (I worked as an accountant!)"

The treatments suggested by her doctors did little to help.  One day she tried Reiki, and felt her tension ebbing away.  She began exploring Reiki and other Energy Healing modalities, studying at the <a href="http://www.fieh.co.uk/">Foundation for Integrated Energy Healing</a> in Somerset, UK.  

Fiona talks with Mike and Joyce about her own journey back to wellness following Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and the many people she has helped with Energy Healing.
