Energy healing is a form of alternative medicine that uses the body’s natural energy to promote wellness. Advocates claim it can help reduce pain, ease depression and anxiety symptoms, and improve overall mental and physical well-being. But does credible research back up these claims? And if so, how can you know if energy healing is right for you?
Energy healers use their hands to transfer energy to the client. They can put their hands on them or over them, though on is usually better because it allows you to feel the energy flow more easily. This energy can help them release old habits, patterns and beliefs that no longer serve them. It can also clear blocks in the energy field that keep you from feeling at peace, energized and fulfilled.
Some people have reported healing from cancers, AIDS, allergies and other ailments that are labeled as “incurable” by the medical profession. Others have found the practice to be relaxing and stress-relieving.
There are a number of different energy healing modalities, including Reiki, Qigong, Access Bars, ThetaHealing, cranial-sacral therapy and shamanism. Often, these techniques are used in combination to achieve maximum results. Some of these modalities are more popular than others. However, the most important factor for anyone seeking an energy healer is to find a practitioner that resonates with you and feels safe. This will allow you to get the most benefit from the experience.
