Have you heard of energy healing and always wondered what that is exactly? You’re not alone…
Energy healing has been a form of healing that has been practiced for centuries. Energy healers are aware that a healthy body is a result of the unimpeded and balanced flow of energy throughout the body. Energy healing is a form of alternative healing that facilitates a balanced flow of energy by manipulating and releasing energy blocks in the body.
Why is this important? A person will begin to suffer from illness, inflammation, or disease when the body’s natural flow of energy becomes blocked. Inflammation is a symptom resulting from a block in the body’s energy flow and stress is a cause of inflammation. If we don’t pay attention to what our bodies are telling us the inflammation can get worse creating more blockages in the body’s energy flow resulting in illness. When the body’s energy flow is at an ideal level or balanced, the body possesses the ability to heal itself.
Conventional medicine implements energy healing using crystals in MRIs and other scanning machines. Forms of energy healing that are not available through conventional medicine involve alternative or complementary medicines that include Tai Chi, Healing Touch, Reiki, yoga, crystal healing, chakra balancing, acupuncture, and massage. (Many of these are services that I offer).
There are a variety of forms of energy healing originating from Eastern medicine that are popular in the United States.
- Reiki a healing technique developed in Japan employs the use of the practitioner’s hands to guide healing energy to specific areas of the body. The practitioner moves their hands over the body guiding energy to flow freely.
- Balanced chakras are a traditional form of Hindu energy healing. By balancing the chakras or the energy wheels in our bodies we can maintain the uninhibited flow of energy that keeps our bodies healthy. Gemstones and crystals relating to each chakra are used to help balance the chakras.
- Traditional Chinese medicine practitioners use acupuncture as a form of energy healing. Needles are strategically placed in an area of the body where the energy flow is blocked. The needle is placed according to the body’s meridians in order to clear any energy blockages.
These forms of energy healing assist in removing energy blockages to facilitate the body’s ability to heal. When the body has blockages, it becomes susceptible to developing health issues. So, when blockages are removed the body’s energy can flow naturally and begin to heal itself. Seeking out an energy healer practitioner can be a great complement to most medical treatments a person may be undergoing.
Some forms of energy healing can be conducted over a long distance. For example, Reiki is a form of energy healing that the client does not have to be in the same physical location as the Reiki practitioner. Energy flows from the practitioner to the client through intention and transfer. Chakra balancing can also be done long distance using a picture or image of the person having their chakras balanced.
