Energy Treatments & Therapy 

Energy work is non-invasive way of balancing your body's energy system to promote rapid healing.  Energy treatments are safe, patient friendly, and free of pharmaceuticals, that you will experience emotional, mental, and physical benefits. 


Dr. Cathy Chargualaf is the founder of the Life Esteem Wellness Center, and provides alternative and complementary mind-body medicine that addresses imbalances at the physical, emotional, and spiritual levels.

The History of Energy Healing

Believe it or not there are many modern systems that include healing based on “energy” although they vary depending on culture or tradition. It is believed that the body produces subtle energies that illuminate if you will, the physical body. This subtle energy is called by many different names, again depending on the culture. In China it is called Qi (Chee), in India it is called Prana, in the Jewish cabalistic tradition it is called Yesod, in Japan Ki (kee), In Greek it is Mana, in Polynesian Ruwach, in Hebrew, Ruah, and Christians refer to it as The Holy Spirit.

Some modalities that are considered to be energy focused are Meditation, Prayer, Light, Color, Sound, Music Therapy, Reiki, T’ai Chi, Qigong, Bioenergy Therapy, Reflexology, Jin Shin Jyutsu, Magnetic therapy, and many others.

Everything Begins with Our Consciousness

Everything that happens in your life, and everything that happens in your body, begins with something happening in your consciousness. Your consciousness is who you are, your experience of be-ing. When our decisions leave us stressed, this stress creates physical symptoms within the body. It is believed that when an individual makes a decision that leads them to stress, this stress creates a blockage in the energy flow in turn creating a symptom on a physical level.

We Are Energetic Beings

It is said that energy fills our entire bodies and flows through and around us, connecting us to our consciousness. Our consciousness is connected to every cell and organ in our bodies. What is remarkable is the fact that this energy can be measured and even photographed through a process called Kirlian photography.

"If you want to find the secrets of the Universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration”    - Nikola Tesla

Negative experiences have a particularly strong impact as they often result in raising defenses, translating in suppression or contraction of the energy flowing through our body. It is said that holes or imperfections can be seen in the aura or energy field, and that they correspond to actual weaknesses within the physical body. These weaknesses show up in the aura long before there are any physical ailments.

Thus, we have an interesting direction of manifestation shown through:

  • A change of consciousness creates a change in the energy field.

  • A change in the energy field happens before a change in the physical body.


The direction of the manifestation is from the consciousness, through the energy field to the physical body. In other words, Consciousness (Thought) activates the Energy Field (Feelings/Vibrations) that moves through the Physical Body (Manifestation).

Dr. Masaru Emotos team found that when glasses of water were exposed to positive vibrations like classical music or kind phrases, the crystalline structure of the water was more patterned and beautiful than before.  Their tests also showed that negative words, actions, or sounds made water crystals more incomplete or chaotic, and the water molecules could not handle these violent vibrations and were torn apart. These tests showed the same results over and over. Vibration affects our world in ways we could never imagine!

The human body is 60-70 percent water. This means vibrations influence everything we do, and the implications of this research create a new awareness of how we impact the earth, others, and our personal health.

Energy Treatments and Therapies: 

Meditation and healing practices have benefits that include lowered stress and anxiety, increased focus, and improved balance and flexibility. It may even reduce your risk of certain chronic diseases.

Chakra & Qigong Integrated Healing Treatment:

Chakra & Qigong healing can be defined as a process aiming at influencing how energy moves through the chakras of the human body. It is often referred to as chakra balancing because its goal is to restore the optimal balance between the energy centers.

How it works:

Energy medicine practitioners clear, open, and balance the human energy system supporting the client. Clearing congestion from the energy field promotes reductions of pain, anxiety, stress, and fear.

The powerful energy system exists in the body, and the energy (Qi) flows through known energy pathways. The pathways are referred to as channels, or meridians.  If Qi patterns are disrupted by emotional distress, environmental exposures, or any number of factors, a persona becomes susceptible to dis-ease. When this disruption of energy is re-balanced, emotional and physical health is restored. 

Client is usually sitting, laying down, or standing. Practitioner will balance the client's energy centers in the body by placing their hands a few inches above your body.  They may also use or recommend guided meditation, sound therapy, crystals, foods, color therapy, and essential oils.

Length of Treatment:

Treatment consists of 60 or 90 minutes, depending on the protocol needed.  A longer treatment is recommended for first time treatments or for clients with specific health concerns. Performed remotely.

Bioenergy Therapy:

When the amount and quality of the energy flow in the body is diminished, our energy field becomes frozen in a specific signature. The practitioner uses specific protocols to become a conduit to direct the healthy bioenergy to the client's biofield and physical body. 

How it works:

Bioenergy is a powerful energy therapy that balances the energy body on a quantum level and promotes healing. This method adjusts and balances the biofield to restore wellness on all levels-energetical, emotional, and physical.

Energy imbalances first appear in the biofield (energy body) and can later develop as a health problem in the physical body.  Bioenergy Therapy focuses on boosting the immune system, spreading information of optimum performance at the cell level, enabling the body to heal itself. 

Client is usually sitting or standing. The practitioner will place their hands a few inches above your body (i.e., top of your head, chest/heart, feet, and the whole body), for specific health condition or for wellness.

Bioenergy aims to restore flow and balance to the energy system allowing the body to better heal itself.

Length of Treatment:

One treatment consists of 4 consecutive days (60 minutes per day), depending on the protocol needed. Performed remotely.

Most people will enjoy benefits after one or two treatments. Others may require additional treatments, depending on the severity of the particular health issues.


What to Expect

Most clients experience a sense of calm, similar to deep meditation.  We recommend that you allow yourself some time/space after a treatment whenever possible to allow for the integration of the healing to take place more fluidly. 


What to Wear

During the session, in person or by distance, clients are asked to wear loose comfortable clothes for ease of movement.

About Sessions

Private sessions are by appointment only. We work with each client based on their individual needs. Sessions are in person, at a distance, or during local Healing Events.

      "Thank you for always being available for me. The support and healing that you have provided for me is a true gift. Lots of love to you"

- Women diagnosed with Cancer


      “Cathy and I have been working together for a couple of months now and a few days ago was my second session. One of the biggest side effects, I have been experiencing since I started getting healing for physical issue is: After the first healing something shifted in me and I started experiencing deep emotional freedom from a trauma I am currently passing through. We did not even work on an emotional issue, however the healing I experienced was definitely on a very deep subconscious level. The second healing which ended 4 days ago took me to yet another level of freedom, this time business oriented. I continuously receive compliments from people and close friends, how great I look and how wonderful my energy feels and I know that is also a side effect of the healing I passed through. People all around me are sensing the shift I passed through. Domancic Method of Bioenergy Therapy is a profound method which opens up more doors of possibilities we can even imagine. It is one of the most pure and focused forms of energy work, which awakens our true nature and helps align us with our higher self and that is when miracles start to happen. Thank you Cathy! Looking forward to continue working with you!”

      “It was amazing!!! I used to be a dancer and I have nerve damage to my right foot. As a result, I have screws and a plate in my right foot. Currently I have no feeling in my right foot. Sometimes, when I removed my shoe, my big toe was bleeding, and I didn’t even know it, that’s how numb my foot has been. After the first session [with Cathy], I could feel my toes for the first time since the surgery. Thank you.”

- Women with nerve damage to foot


      "Before visiting Life Esteem I had no idea what "Energy Healing" was and to be honest I might have been a little skeptical. I had 3 major spinal surgeries and I thought I had tried everything! I went through physical therapy, chiropractic and even acupuncture. It had been years since my last surgery but I still felt extreme pain down my right leg. Like a burning hot rope all the way down to my foot. I accepted the fact that I would live out my life in pain. That was until I met Cathy and Tom. I had a four-day treatment and my sciatic nerve pain has disappeared. I no longer have a limp and can actually enjoy the days ahead. She not only helped heal the pain, but she also helped change my attitude. I can't thank you and Tom enough! Forever grateful."

- Man with extreme pain down right leg (Sciatica)


      “For two months I have had heavy bleeding from my menstrual cycle. This has caused me to feel extremely weak and tired. I am happy to report that after my treatment with Cathy, my menstrual bleeding has dramatically slowed down. My blotting is gone and I feel I have more energy now. ”

      “Before I came to see Cathy, I had headaches every day and neck pain. I was clinching my jaw and was unable to relax any part of my body. After one session I could feel the blood starting to circulate. I could feel the tense break up and fading. I had a great session. I can breathe, I can move, I feel great! Anyone that needs a healing, of any sort, I would recommend bioenergy with Cathy.”

       “I’ve had amazing results. Recently, I have been diagnosis with anemia due to heavy blood flow. My blood levels were critically low, below normal levels. I also experienced chest pains, from a lack of oxygen to my heart and I thought I was having a heart attack. I was referred to a heart specialist, who recommended I get a hysterectomy. Instead, I decided to have a 4 day bioenergy treatment. My blood flow is now back to normal and my blood level is at a health level. Thanks to you Tom, I did not have to have an unnecessary surgery.”

      "I found this work during my treatment for breast cancer. The sessions with Cathy helped me to deeply relax and let healing flow in my body. I was able to sleep deeply and release issues that may have been blocking the energy in my body. The therapy felt so loving and supportive. It aided me to releasing fear and know that support and healing come in many ways. While she never touched me during any session, the movement of energy within my body was clear to me. Her intuition and guidance were very helpful. The work was a wonderful addition to my treatment, and I am doing well today!

      “My daughter had a rash under her arm. It was sensitive to the touch and painful. I took her to the doctors who prescribe a medicine cream. The rash did not go away. We tried other medicines, and it still did not go away. After one therapy session with Cathy, the rash was gone in a few days, and it has not returned. My daughter and I thank you.”

      "Cathy worked in person for the first day, and at a distance for the remaining three days. She knew when the pain was releasing from my body, and she wasn't even in the room. It was amazing. The sciatic pain is gone.”

- Man diagnosed with sciatic nerve pain


       “I have had chronic shoulder and neck pain due to an accident and stress. During the session, I felt the warmth of her hands, and my body was becoming more relaxed, with a slight release of tension. At one point, it felt like a big chunk of heavy tissue was pulled out. I immediately felt I could breathe better. It’s like a big weight has been lifted. I also felt like I was in water, and the energy was like waves of water rolling in and out over my body. It was relaxing. After one session with Cathy the pain was completely gone. I haven’t felt this good for a long time. Thank you!! ”

It is recommended that if one has an illness or other medical or psychological condition that in addition to getting energy healing, clients also consult a licensed physician or other licensed health care professional as energy healing works well in conjunction with all medical or psychological care.
