Time Out Says

What if we told you there is a healing therapy that taps into your subconscious mind and removes all negative beliefs? It’s not hypnosis and neither is it meditation. But it’s an intuitive healing therapy.

Growing in popularity in Dubai, ThetaHealing is the quinoa of the spiritual world. It is a meditative technique that uses advanced science and quantum physics to alter the theta brainwave and test your belief system. The alternative therapy was coined in 1995 in the US by Vianna Stibal, who claimed to have facilitated her own healing from cancer using the science behind it. The therapy, as it stands today, promises to tap into depression, anxiety disorders, failed relationships and other such emotional and mental conditions.

ThetaHealing piqued our interest with its claim of “instantaneous physical and emotional healing”. We booked a session with Elias Kanakri, a Dubai-based practitioner and teacher, immediately.

So, how does it work? First, you have to walk into a session with Kanakri with the intention for positive change and you must be clear of your beliefs. “You come to me with something that you want to resolve or get out of your system, Kanakri explains. “So in a session, I identify these subconscious beliefs. For example, if you believe that you have to go through disappointment and struggle to be successful, I take you with me into a meditative theta state [the dream state of the mind that’s active when we are asleep] and change this belief. My intention for every session is to clear your mind of negativity.”

Kanakri insists that there is nothing whimsical about ThetaHealing. He says that it is all based on science, but that it gives the healer access to the energy of creation. You have to believe there is a higher power, only then can your subconscious be vacuumed out.

Are we healed? Not particularly. But despite feeling a little dubious, we leave our session with the strongest sense of revival we’ve experienced in months.
