What is “healing”?

Healing is remembering who we are, where we came from, and our Divinity. Healing is also remembering our limitless power to co-create our realities with God/Source through our free will.


What is energy healing?

Energy healing is working with the body’s energy field to help it remember its Divinity. Sometimes, this can bring about deep physical, emotional, spiritual, and mental healing. The two main types of energy healing used at Introspection: DC are a combination of Reiki and crystal healing. Tara uses both Reiki and crystals in healing sessions; at this time, Reiki only sessions are not available.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is an ancient form of energy healing whereby the healer channels energy through her/his crown chakra down through her/his arms and hands. Very often, heat is felt from the Reiki practitioner’s hands. It is very soothing to receive this form of energy.


What is crystal healing?

Crystal healing is using gemstones or crystals (I use the term interchangeably) to bring about mental/physical/emotional/spiritual comfort.


Where do the crystals/stones come from?

Mostly, they come from Mother Earth…they’ve been working their way up from her core for more years than we can imagine. A few types of stones are not native to Earth.


Who can use crystal healing?

Anyone and everyone!

Remember that Crystal Healers are not medical, legal, or mental health professionals—so do not rely solely on their (our) word. Always consult a professional when you need one.


How does crystal healing work?

All energy carries vibrations. All things are made of energy. Therefore, every stone/crystal operates at vibrations that resonate with different issues. Because stones/crystals are part of Mother Earth, there’s no condition that can’t be treated…better yet, there are no side effects.


What can I do with my crystals?

You can meditate with stones, or carry them in your pockets. Or wear them as jewelry. Or set them up on your desk or bedside table. You can even bathe with stones (always check first, though, Selenite, for example, will melt in water)! Also, see my post on Using Crystals.


How often can energy healing be done?

It completely depends on the client and/or the issue s/he is working on. Tara believes the client should make the determination as to how many times to come, and merely asks for at least one week between sessions, if the client chooses to have multiple sessions. For Past Life Regressions, you will need at least a month or two to process what you learned before having another regression.


How does distance healing work?

With distance healing, you can be in the comfort of your own home (or office or treehouse or wherever you are!), and Tara will conduct your session from her location. Because time and space are human creations, they can be manipulated…when Tara does a distance session, she treats you as if you are on her table and her hands are touching you. The effects are the same as if we were in the room together. You can read more about a distance session Tara facilitated along with another healer here.


Why use energy healing?

As part of a holistic wellness program, energy healing can be very beneficial. It’s natural and relaxing, and there are no side effects. The benefits are endless. Many of Tara’s clients report increased relaxation, fewer headaches, and relief from pain, for example.


What is Past Life Regression?

Past life regression is a technique used to view one’s past lives, and sometimes in-between lives. It’s a unique way to examine how/why people cope with situations in their present lives, and in some cases, it can heal physical and emotional dis-ease. In a past life regression, Tara eases the client into a deep state of relaxation and takes him/her through the scene(s) that comes up. Past life regression sessions typically last 60 to 90 minutes.


How do I prepare for a session at Introspection: DC?

Wear comfortable clothes. Be prepared to take your shoes off. Be open-minded. Notify Tara of any medical conditions you may have. Bring completed information and consent forms to your session. Arrive on time (a little early wouldn’t hurt!). And be gentle with yourself.

Drink plenty of water in the days after your session. It will help keep that energy flowing! And it bears repeating: be gentle with yourself!


Can I purchase crystals/stones at Introspection: DC?

Yes! Absolutely! We have a large variety of tumbled and rough stones available for purchase. Stones are available for online purchase or at time of session only.


What are your hours?
Introspection: DC’s current posted hours are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 10am-6pm, and Saturday, 10am-2pm. Unless in session or a meeting, Tara will answer the phone during these hours. Distance sessions are available outside of posted hours; contact Tara for more information.


Where do sessions take place?
At this time, in-person sessions can take place at Tara’s home or, depending on the circumstances, in your home. For distance sessions, anywhere you can lay peacefully without interruption for about 45 minutes will do.


May I bring someone with me to my appointment?
If necessary, yes. However, due to the distractions that might occur during your session, Tara asks that you please do not bring someone with you, and especially without notifying her first. Thank you for your cooperation on this matter.

I see you write about client sessions sometimes. Will my information be kept private?
Absolutely! On the rare occasions that Tara writes about sessions, she always has her client’s permission, and she is very specific in making sure to maintain client privacy. All of your information, including contact, information forms, and session experiences are kept confidentially.




Payment via PayPal is required prior to booking a session.  Tara will contact you within 48 hours of purchase to schedule your appointment, and send a confirmation email with important information regarding your session.


In most cases, same day appointments are not available, because Tara spends 1 to 2 hours preparing for each session.


Appointment cancellation: Kindly give Tara 48 hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. If you cancel more than 48 hours in advance, you will receive a full refund for your session. If you cancel less than 48 hours before your appointment, only 50% of your session will be refunded. This is because Tara spends one to two hours preparing for your session in the days before your arrival. Rescheduling due to emergency is completely acceptable.


Information and consent forms are required and will be sent to you in the confirmation email.
