Life events and relationships may sometimes result in our carrying uncomfortable inclusions of energy in our spirit bodies. Shamanic Extraction is the process of removing these intrusions of incompatible energy. They are found during a shamanic journey and may be perceived as energy masses, objects, or even spirit beings. Removal is done with specific rituals, which may include rattling or drumming, cleansing with smoke or salt, or other purification. Both Bekki and Crow are often called upon to perform extraction healings in their healing practices.

Crow has made a specialty of studying tribal extraction techniques and works in all the traditional modalities including sucking, cutting and brushing. He has written Spirit Knife, Soul Bone: The Ancient Shamanic Art of Extracting Negative Energies, which describes contemporary and tribal extraction techniques as well as ways to avoid intrusions.
