Energy Healing • Kabbalah Healing • Trauma Healing
Dani Antman specializes in energy healing that works with your subtle body, or aura, a living record of your life experience. Spiritual, hands-on healing uproots unhealthy patterns, clearing the path for you to be present in the new, productive life you wish to create. Your whole person – not just symptoms – is treated holistically to balance your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
Trauma healing is available to treat the negative effects of PTSD, abuse, accidents and surgery.
Kabbalah healing is integral to Dani Antman’s practice. Kabbalah healing draws from the Jewish mystical tradition and uses the ten sefirot of the Tree of Life to enliven your greater wholeness. It shifts the deepest patterns enabling you to engage fully in life with an open heart. Then you can embrace your gifts, instead of turning away from life’s challenges in frustration and fear. Suffering ceases as a holistic awakening suffuses your body.

Post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
“Trauma is a disease of not being able to be present.” Bessel Vander Kolk
Trauma can take many forms:
Abuse at home, sexual assault, war experiences, accidents, disasters, medical trauma, loss.
The basic characteristic of trauma is some sort of threat to our physical, emotional or psychological welfare.
An experience becomes traumatic when our natural fight/flight defense mechanisms are prevented or aborted. Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is when the body’s alarm systems are turned on from a traumatic incident and then never quite turn off. This creates hyper-vigilence, which is the state of always scanning the environment for danger.
In order to heal trauma, we have to be able to feel our body, and tolerate sensation. This needs to be done in very small increments, so that the system is not re-traumatized. For healing trauma, I use Somatic Experiencing, the work of Peter Levine, www.traumahealing.com. Somatic experiencing is a process that is led by your nervous system, and the sensations in your body. It gently discharges stuck memories, sensations and feelings, so that normal functioning can be returned. I combine this work with energy healing to clear the remnants of trauma in the subtle body.
“The human spirit is stronger than anything that happens to it.” C.C. Scott
Chronic pain is pain that lasts longer than 3 months. It is very hard to treat medically because of its complex origins. Major effects in the patient’s life are: depressed mood, fatigue, reduced activity and libido, excessive use of drugs and alcohol, dependent behavior, and disability out of proportion with impairment.
When I work with chronic pain, I explore root physical and emotional causes, and also work with the nervous system to soothe and calm the nerves. While the effects are not always permanent, significant pain reduction can happen in just one session. This allows for the system to relax as the pain syndrome is broken.
Chronic pain can produce isolation and loneliness, and the relational aspect of the healing touch is often very nourishing and restorative.
“When you are standing in that forest of sorrow, you cannot imagine that you could ever find your way to a better place. But if someone can assure you that they themselves have stood in that same place, and now have moved on, sometimes this will bring hope.” Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
To heal grief requires time, and often you need a helping hand to guide you through devastating loss. I work with the energetic relationship cords that have connected to the person you have lost.
These cords extend outwards from each of our chakras, and are literally cut when we lose someone we love, which is why we feel so much pain. The energetic repair of the cords, eases the emotional and physical pain of loss, and allows the love to remain. It can help clear unresolved issues with your loved ones and restore energy to your system that has been depleted by the grieving process.
“Anxiety does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows, but only empties today of its strength.” Charles Spurgeon
Anxiety can be debilitating and causes many different physical and emotional symptoms, too long to list here.
In general when I work with anxiety, I provide a stable container for the anxiety to be explored, giving it space so that it can be tolerated and then dispersed. Most anxiety is related to negative beliefs about the future and these beliefs are examined and brought in to a more positive framework. Each negative belief has a corresponding contraction in the energy field.
I use different techniques to open the energy field to restore calmness and normal functioning. If the anxiety is trauma related I work with the trauma directly using Somatic Experiencing and gentle touch when appropriate.
“Others imply that they know what it is like to be depressed because they have gone through a divorce, lost a job, or broken up with someone. But these experiences carry with them feelings. Depression, instead, is flat, hollow, and unendurable. It is also tiresome……. You’re frightened, and you’re frightening, and you’re “not at all like yourself but will be soon,” but you know you won’t.” Kay Redfield Jamison, An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness
Anxiety can be debilitating and causes many different physical and emotional symptoms, too long to list here.
The symptoms of Depression can include the following: difficulty concentrating, fatigue, decreased energy, a feeling of heaviness or numbness, insomnia, loss of interest in life, persistent sad, anxious or empty feelings. When untreated, and severe, it can lead to thoughts of suicide.
I treat depression as a condition in which there is a fundamental disconnection from the core self, a block in the ability to connect to inner guidance, to one’s heart’s longing, and to deeper emotions like anger and rage. There is a deadness in the energy field that looks like thick grey clouds and mucous. Its as if the light of the soul is veiled.
Clearing the heavy energy around the heart and head, creates access to the deeper emotions underneath. These emotions are explored in a gentle way, always held in the light of the soul’s deepest longing. Often we can identify when your heart shut down, because you couldn’t cope with some aspect of life experience. As you feel the original source of disconnection there is paradoxically, a reconnection your sense of purpose in life.
Deep stuck patterns, such as feelings of hopelessness and desperation resolve as a stronger pattern of energy is transmitted to support and stabilize hopefulness. This can take a few sessions, but the results are often dramatic.
Physical, emotional and sexual abuse
“The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.” Mark Caine
The effects of abuse can be long lasting and devastating. Often memories of abuse are blocked and this produces unexplainable symptoms years after the actual abuse occurred. When unintentionally triggered, these memories come to the surface and flood your system with emotions and sensations that are overwhelming. I help you recover from abusive situations by providing a safe and nurturing environment in which to explore your feelings. I use Energy healing and Somatic Experiencing to heal the effects of abusive in your life. This helps you build the strength, to either stand up for yourself or leave an abusive situation. I help you find your voice, connect you to your core sense of self, and improve your self esteem.
Physical abuse is often the most recognized form of abuse. Physical abuse can be any kind of hitting, shaking, burning, pinching, biting, choking, throwing, beating, and other actions that cause physical injury, leave marks, or cause pain.
Sexual abuse is any type of non-consensual sexual contact between two adults; between a significantly older child and a younger child; or if one person overpowers another, regardless of age. If a family member sexually abuses another family member, this is called incest.
Emotional abuse can be the most difficult to identify because there are usually no outward signs of the abuse. Emotional abuse happens when yelling and anger go too far, creating chronic self esteem issues, anxiety and stress.
“During chemo, you’re more tired than you’ve ever been. It’s like a cloud passing over the sun, and suddenly you’re out. You don’t know how you’ll answer the door when your groceries are delivered. But you also find that you’re stronger than you’ve ever been. You’re clear. Your mortality is at optimal distance, not up so close that it obscures everything else, but close enough to give you depth perception. Previously, it has taken you weeks, months, or years to discover the meaning of an experience. Now it’s instantaneous.” ~Melissa Bank
I have not found one central cause of cancer. It seems to arise from a number of factors, including genetics, life style, toxicity, and emotional issues.
I help you identify unuseful patterns of relating, strengthen your faith, and prioritize the use of your time and energy.
Energy healing can be extremely effective in restoring vitality after you have received chemotherapy and/or radiation. It can help prevent the nausea associated with chemotherapy, as well as clear the toxicity when chemotherapy is finished. I accomplish this by working on clearing the liver and moving energy in the lymph system. If there has been surgery, the whole energy field is disrupted and I stabilize and repair the energy ruptures.
Radiation damages the structured levels of the field, and I am able to knit those levels back together with lines of light. This allows more energy to flow through the system and eases the pain as the “radiation burn” rises up from the deeper layers of tissue.
In addition, I help you have resiliency in facing the emotional aspects of the many decisions and issues that arise while living with and treating cancer.
“Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Confucius
Coping skills are the product of having increased resiliency in our emotional, behavioral reactions. Energy healing helps you to fundamentally shift negative patterns in your energy field, so that you can cope better with life’s ups and downs. It increases your sense of grounding and safety in the world.
Through Somatic experiencing, I can help you have a menu of resources that increase your ability to cope with stressful situations.
I provide empathy and support so that you don’t feel helpless and hopeless. Together, we find positive solutions and reframe problems as challenges for spiritual growth.
