Intuitive Healing

Live Fulfilled Life From Light And Love Of One's True Self

Health, wholeness, self-awareness, joy.

Personal transformation is possible through the choice to connect, or in some cases reconnect, with one's soul, the part of people that's already whole. Helping others learn how to live an awakened, heart-centered life is the daily focus of local intuitive energy healer and wellness consultant Allison Prettyman. 

"Healing sessions address clients' physical, mental, emotional and spiritual nature. Within sessions, we may combine life coaching, mindfulness, reiki and meditation techniques to facilitate the deepest transformations," Allison explains.

"Profound healing and joy is possible when we face, with honesty, the blocks we've put in our own way. When we risk letting go of fear and victim consciousness, and open ourselves to the power of our heart's wisdom, a new and vibrant way of living is possible. We all have innate healing wisdom and need to learn how to tap into it."

Allison says the reiki healing technique can aid with headaches, tension, depression, insomnia, pain, fatigue and mood swings.

Her services can be grouped in three areas:

  • Energy Healing:  This approach acknowledges that a healthy, clear energy field is essential to keep the body and soul in balance for optimum wellness. Energy healing sessions work directly with individuals' energy field to restore harmony. 
  • Healing for Cancer Care:  For those with a cancer diagnosis, Allison says energy healing can help reduce uncomfortable symptoms one may experience with cancer treatment, such as anxiety, weakness and nausea. Energy healing also may induce relaxation and balance for those who are in remission after completing cancer treatments, she adds.
  • Distance HealingThis remote healing radiates healing energy directly to clients through the power of focused intention. "Energy is not bound by time and space, making it easy for healing to be sent at a distance," says Allison. Sessions are via Zoom or phone, and begin with establishing one's intention for healing. In the comfort of one's home, Allison and clients then spend sessions working through the issues and challenges needing healing.

"Allison creates a safe space overflowing with acceptance and hope,” says client Lynda Jean Henzie.

Allison received extensive training from The Meridian Shiatsu Institute, The Omega Bodyworks Institute, The Full Spectrum Center for Healing and Self Transformation, The Finger Lakes School of Massage, The Upledger Institute, The Klose Lymphedema Training, Mercyhurst University's Physical Therapist Assistant program and has studied with Peruvian Shaman Jorge Luis Delgado. She also is certified in Usui Reiki Level I, II and III. Additionally, she's a Usui Holy Fire III Karuna Reiki Master and teacher.

Allison enjoys continued learning, and soon will offer hypnotherapy as a tool for clients in their healing journey. 

One of her clients, Randy Lyons, says, “Allison has guided me through some profound changes that have left me with a better understanding of myself and a new vision of my journey and its ultimate destination."
