What Is Energy Healing?

Energy healing is a gentle, noninvasive technique that restores harmony, energy and balance within the human energy system by channelling the universal life force into it. While some energy healing modalities employ the element of touch during a treatment session to clear, balance and energise the energy fields of the recipient of energy, others do not. In most cases, energy healers are capable of transferring energy remotely to heal another person's physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health despite their distance.

Energy healing can be used to complement conventional healthcare services or in conjunction with other natural approaches to health and healing.

What Are the Different Types of Energy Healing Modalities?

There are a lot of energy healing modalities out there. Each follows a distinct process, but all of them aim for one thing, which is to make instant and lasting changes in a person's energy field and improve their overall health. Here's a list of common energy healing practices:

What Can You Expect From Energy Healing?

Preparation for energy healing is an important foundation for a successful energy healing experience. Both the healer and the client should be relaxed, grounded and in an elevated state before proceeding for a session. Breathing techniques can help quiet the mind and let go of unnecessary thoughts.

During the session, the healer sets their intention to serve the highest good of the person they are sending energy to. Healing is performed on the client fully clothed, while they're seated or lying down on the treatment table.

It's important to remember that the energy healer acts as a conduit through which the universal life force flows to get to the person whom they're working on; the healer isn't the main source of the life force. That said, online or distance energy healing is just as effective as a face-to-face healing session since the healer can easily send energy to another person regardless of the distance between them.

Throughout the session, the healer holds their hands out and lets the energy flow throughout their body and radiate out of their hands into the client's body, going wherever it is needed the most.

An energy healing session usually runs for 50 minutes to an hour. People who have already experienced it reported different outcomes; some said they felt totally relaxed and somewhat sleepy while others felt their energy levels go up. The results vary according to the client's goal or intention for receiving the universal life force. 

Is Energy Healing Safe?

As a noninvasive holistic therapy, energy healing is safe for all human beings regardless of age and health condition. It is widely used to address imbalances in the mind, body, emotions and spirit that cause a variety of medical conditions.
