Healing in Surgery

I am proud and honored to be one of the few energy medicine practitioners with specific training in Energy Medicine in Surgery. Surgical support is a specific area of my practice, where I bring absolutely every gift that I have into supporting you through a very focused series of appointments. I absolutely love this aspect of my practice. You will receive the beneficial healing of trauma support, emotional support, medical-intuitive work, spiritual support, clinical recovery, and even medication (anesthetic) removal.

I have worked in surgical settings in North Carolina through Duke University Pediatrics, Wake Med Hospital, UNC Hospitals, and Rex Hospitals. Surgical support is a custom package that includes (typically) around 5 sessions. Four of these are regular length, and then the surgical day can be up to 8 hours of support.

In addition to support and energy balancing, I will be gently guiding you through the surgery process. Rather than being alone and passed between different teams of caring nurses, I will at your side as you leave for surgery and will be present as you wake up.

Combined with the energetic support, I advocate for you, take notes, and work with your surgical team to ensure you are being treated with thoughtful care and integrity. I will also ensure your medical wishes are honored and upheld throughout your entire surgical process. I will sit with your family or loved ones. Many times they are so grateful for the information and insights that I can provide them regarding your surgery experience.

Do you have an upcoming surgery and would like energetic support? If so, I invite you to schedule a complimentary 45-minute surgical consultation to discuss your operation and how healing energy medicine can support you and improve your experience.

I am here for you. I look forward to guiding you and sharing your journey of healing.

I’m a somatic trauma therapist, and Amelia and her healing gifts helped me through a recent major surgery. She traveled across the state to my home the evening before and prepared a heartfelt ceremony that was grounding and allowed me to focus on my intentions for the surgery and for my healing. Amelia was present the entire time I was at the medical facility and integrated her work seamlessly with my surgical team. Hers was the first voice I heard in the recovery room as I woke up, allowing me to know I had made it safely through the procedure. She also took careful notes about important information, was an advocate for my needs, and helped lift the energetic haze of the anesthesia. Even in the best circumstances, surgery is traumatic for the mind and body, and Amelia’s energy work and loving presence helped mitigate the difficulties of the experience. I am so grateful that she was there.

Four years ago, I was sitting with one of my surgical clients in another appointment and his energy shifted; he got quiet and he looked up at my eyes and I noticed that he was softly beginning to cry. He changed the subject:
Amelia, I just want to thank you for helping me during my surgery. I have never felt so ready, so centered, so prepared, so calm. My surgeon also mentioned that the surgery felt different to him. I am so grateful that you were here to help me. I can’t express adequately what you did for me that day. You probably changed the rest of my life.

Surgery Package Overview

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic all appointments, including surgery day, are conducted via distance.

Surgical support is a custom package that includes (typically) around 5 sessions. Four of these are regular length and then the surgical day can be up to 8 hours of support.

In addition to the support and energy balancing, I will be guiding and supporting you through surgery. Rather than being alone and passed between different teams of caring nurses, I will be with you as you leave for surgery and will be present as you wake up.

In addition to the energetic support, I can advocate for you, take notes, and work with your surgical team to ensure you are being treated with integrity and your medical wishes are honored throughout your surgical process.

Preparing for surgery gives the body a chance to understand what is going to happen during the procedure on a deep level and allows the body to create a positive relationship with the procedure and help soften fear and worry.

Pre-surgical support includes a vision quest to help you get clear about what your goals are during surgery. We will also create a sacred place for your spirit to rest in during your surgery.

I will accompany you to pre-op and help support your body, mind, and spirit for your surgery. I’ll work with you during the entire length of the surgery keeping you grounded, maintaining balance in your energy system, and holding sacred space for you during your procedure through a meaningful activity that you and I complete in one of your pre-operative sessions.

The surgical session is done as distance therapy in the waiting room. I have been trained to go into surgery with you and we can discuss this as an option depending on the surgery type and surgical setting.

Post-surgery, I meet you in PACU (or the post-operative recovery room) removing the anesthetic and pain medications from the field, wound sealing and musculature recovery, working gently with the pain body, and helping to balance the auric system such that the body is deeply and clearly connected to its natural healing intelligences.

After you return home or are moved to a longer-stay recovery room at the hospital, we will set up two more appointments to help your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies come back to balance. This healing supports you from your cellular healing, to scarring, to pain management, to spiritual and emotional aspects of post-surgical recovery.

Surgical Support – Information, Pricing and Packages

Easy! Use my scheduler and find a time that fits with your schedule. If you don’t see a time that fits your schedule, then e-mail me. Please know that I receive a lot of e-mails and this can sometimes take a few days to return a message. I do the very best that I can to be attentive and responsive in a respectful amount of time.

Schedule Appointment

For surgical appointments, we work together to create the perfect schedule.  Sometimes we might need to meet on a weekend or outside office hours to accommodate your needs and I am happy to do this.

My office is in Durham, NC. For distance clients, we can meet on the phone or Skype.

First, we will have our 45 minute initial conversation and see if this service feels right to you.  After that conversation, I will give you talking points and information about how to discuss the inclusion of my support into your surgery day.  This requires some collaboration with your surgical team and is a request that is covered under your Patient Bill of Rights.

We will start with two sessions fairly close together to prepare you for surgery.

For the surgery day, I will meet you in the waiting area prior to surgery and stay with you until you are taken back to the marking room and then to the operating room.   At this time, I will be working with you over distance throughout the entire length of your surgery. If you have loved ones waiting for you, you and I will become very clear ahead a time about what you wish me to share or not share with your support person/people.

After your surgery, depending on arrangements with the hospital, I will meet you in the PACU (Post Anesthesia Care Unit) and support you as your body and energy clears the anesthesia and move with you to your Recovery Room. During this time, I will be shifting my focus and care to supporting anesthetic removal, pain management, and cellular recovery.

Your post-surgical sessions are scheduled after you are able to assess your needs and can be done at home, in the hospital, or my office / phone.

Fee includes:

  • Surgical Day (Up to 8 Hours – includes travel time)
  • 4 additional Surgical Support Sessions (75 Minutes Each)

Package price:  $3,150 (Includes 4 sessions + surgery day) 

If I have to travel outside of driving distance and have to miss two days of work (before the surgery and after), $1, 035 is added to the fee.

All travel expenses are the responsibility of the client.
