What is Energetic Healing?
Energetic Healing is a branch of complementary and alternative medicine. It’s an umbrella term used for any therapy that works with the energy circuits in our physical or subtle bodies to regain balance and help our body’s innate healing mechanisms.
To explain this without the jargon – when we are healthy we are ‘at ease’. Disease (dis – ease) is the result of the body and its energy systems being out of balance. The body knows how to heal itself and with energetic healing we can work with the body’s energy into healing itself.
“Our remedies oft in ourselves do lie” ~ William Shakespeare
Examples of Energetic Healing therapies:
Reiki, relexology, kinesiology, acupuncture, aura balancing, chakra balancing, flower and vibrational essences, crystal healing, colour therapy and spiritual healing.
These are all methods that go beyond the physical and work with the subtle energy system of the body (the subtle energies are the energies we can sense but not measure). For example:
- Acupuncture works by clearing blocks in the energy pathways (meridians) of the body.
- Reiki channels universal energy (a form of energy that comes from our belief system e.g. mother nature, solar energy, the energy that created life and the Universe).
- Kinesiology works to balance the body’s energy by tapping into it’s energy flows and where its blocked.
