What is Energy Healing?

Energy Medicine Is The Last Great Frontier In Medicine                        ~ Mehmet Oz.

Energy Healing is spiritual healing, a branch of Energy Medicine; an alternative health treatment using health recovery techniques such as Qigong or Reiki, the cosmic forces to balance the human bioenergy field.

Energy Healing helps you connect and direct your consciousness to activate your body’s natural healing system. For centuries, the Chinese have been using bio-energy to treat illnesses. They called this method Qigong; “qi” means energy, and “gong” means cultivation or mastery. Now, the healing modality has become popular in the West.

Everything down to its molecular level is energy. Energy is a subtle electrical wave circulating in the environment and our bodies. Our body’s bioenergy components depend on energy flow to maintain balance— keeping our heart in rhythm—to stay alive.

Disruptive emotions interfere and obstruct the frequency of our energy field can cause poor blood circulation, which is the primary cause of most illnesses. Irritability can affect the liver’s normal function, which results in headaches, redness of the eyes, and dry mouth.

Energy Healing aims to clear blockages to increase the flow of energy for better blood circulation to promote the body’s self-healing. The Chinese believed qi (the energy) travels along the meridians, the bioelectric pathways. In acupuncture, the acupuncturist uses needles to stimulate qi flow in the meridians. In contrast, a skilled Qigong practitioner uses her hands to manipulate and balance the qi to maintain the patient’s health. The healing can also be done at a distance, where the patient is at the comfort of the home, while the practitioner balances the patient’s energy through the magnetic field. The method is called Distance Healing.

In the West, practitioners have taken Energy Healing to a new level—an integrative therapy. The therapist combines Chinese Qigong, Chakra Healing (a sacred tradition of Hinduism), and Spiritual Healing, which involve guiding the patient’s spirit or consciousness to participate in rehabilitation. When your spirit is aligned with your body, you will have vibrant health.

Energy Healing can improve every aspect of a person’s life. Frequent treatment can increase blood flow to energize the organs, relieve pain, improve vitality and mood, enabling you to stay focused and alert.

What to expect in an Energy Healing session?

Before an Energy Healing session, The practitioner will discuss with you your treatment goals. Such as, are you seeking relaxation, trying to overcome emotional distress, preparing or recovering from surgery, or relief from a specific symptom.

She will scan your energy field to find any imbalances during the session and attune your energy accordingly. Whether it is a Distance Healing or in-person, everyone’s experience during the treatment is different; you may feel heat, coldness, tingling, get emotional, float in and out of your body, etc., or feel nothing at all.

 Clients’ healing experience

The practitioner may also use meditation or visualization to release your mental or physical distress, depending on your needs. Prevention is always better than cure. She may show you some techniques to maintain your energy field and develop a self-care plan towards the end of the session. This plan may include when to have another session—it depends on your needs.

None of us can escape anxiety and pain. Frequent Energy Healing helps expand your awareness to detect what is happening in your mind-body. So you can clear negative energy within and around you to avoid unpleasant events and create harmony in your life.


Energy Healing is a complementary therapy to conventional medicine; to enhance the self-healing of the body, not a cure for illnesses. If you are sick, please consult your health physician.
