We are energetic beings having a human experience. Our 100 trillion cells contain 100 trillion atoms each and they make up our energy field which flows throughout the body and our electromagnetic field can extend well beyond it. Past traumas and negative emotions interrupt the flow and that can lead to pain and fatigue.
Energy therapy can restore the balance and flow of energy in your body and works to treat many medical conditions. For physical and mental health issues, this traditional healing system can cure you by fixing your flow.
Here are five different types of energy healing and how they work:
Type #1: Qigong Energy Healing
Qigong came from the study and practice of nurturing life force through several techniques. Qi means “vital life force” and gong means “effort.” This Chinese healing art has been practiced for over 4,000 years and is very effective for freeing up energy in your body.
You use coordinated movements in sequence through different patterns along with breathing techniques to stimulate the body’s energy and restore balance. Some postures are held for a long time and can strengthen your body.
A Qigong healer uses their practice to gain deeper understanding of their energy and can emit that Qi to others through massage and other objects. These types of energy healing also focus on activating meridians, acupuncture points, and organ systems to free blockages and relieve emotional stress.
Type #2: Reiki Energy Healing
Reiki stands for “Universal life energy” and is a Japanese therapy to cure illness. A healer guides energy through your body to promote your self-healing abilities and the Reiki practitioner doesn’t heal or use their energy for you, they are just the channel for your healing energy.
Reiki energy flows through our bodies but can get blocked when there is a physical or emotional imbalance. Different hand movements with touch and non-touch techniques harness the energy to cure various ailments including headaches, flu and colds. Even chronic disease can improve with Reiki. Other benefits include:
- Better sleep
- Improved emotional well being
- Pain management
- Reducing anxiety
- Increasing relaxation
Reiki does no harm with no negative side effects. These types of energy healing will encourage a healthy flow of energy in your body.
Type #3: EFT Tapping
Tapping is a stress relief and pain technique that utilizes specific meridian points to send calming signals to the brain. It has been shown to reduce the stress hormone cortisol, thereby decreasing anxiety, pain, and stress which allows your immune system to combat inflammation.
In these types of energy healing, you work through a sequence of meridian points, tapping and focus on the negative emotions you want to clear. The 8 meridian points are:
- Top of the head
- Side of the eye
- Under the eye
- Under the nose
- Under the mouth
- The collarbone
- Under your arm
- The side of the hand (Karate Chop)
Other places include the fingertips (excluding the ring finger) and the back of the hand between the knuckles. As you tap each point you can repeat your anxiety, fear or pain. This speaks directly to the meridian point and sends the signal and thought to the brain.
You start with a setup statement and begin at your Karate chop area, tapping 7-10 times and move through each point. Assess your pain/anxiety level and do another round as needed. It’s best to start with a professional to guide you through and teach you what to say in your set up as well as the best order to hit each meridian. When you are comfortable you can practice this at home.
Type #4: Pranic Healing
Where Reiki uses the intuition of the practitioner to find weak spots in the energy flow, Pranic healing scans the body and interacts with the aura to look for areas of energetic congestion. Healing involves using energy to clean the toxins out in order to accelerate physical healing.
Pranic healing is used for chronic disease and psychological disorders as well as healing past traumas and materializing goals and prosperity. You can also develop your spirituality and increase awareness using this type of energy healing.
Type #5: Crystal Healing
The use of crystals and stones for healing is powerful and can repel negative energy from your body. You target specific areas on your body to address emotional and physical problems. These gemstones can bring balance to your life because of their unique frequency and energy fields. There are many gemstones with different healing properties and it is interesting to research find the right crystals to help protect and heal you.
These traditional healing systems will bring balance to your life and clear the flow of energy because disease is a result of a blockage or imbalance in our body’s energy system. Restoring it will bring about the natural healing process innate in our bodies. It’s time to bring peace and health back to your body.
