What Is Energy Healing and It's Benefits

Energy healing can yield benefits even without physical touch.

Are you struggling with a feeling of stagnation, like you simply can't pull yourself out of the muck and move forward? Your energy centers may be the source of the problem. If your energy flow is blocked, it may cause you to suffer from stress, depression, sleeplessness, pain, and more. Energy healing is a safe and powerful way to tackle these problems so you can glow up and manifest your full potential.

What Is Energy Healing?

Energy healing is the practice of mindfully channeling the universal life force to heal and balance your body. This can sound pretty woo-woo, but energy healing is a time-tested practice that's shown real results in cultures around the world for millennia. We're more than our physical bodies. Each individual exists in a unique energy field that flows around and through them. If those energies are imbalanced or blocked, we may suffer from insomnia, anxiety, depression, pain, or another illness. 

Energy healing helps promote the healthy, steady flow of energy throughout the body, often focusing on the seven main energy centers, known as chakras. You can check out a whole world of different healing practices in this area, including:

  • Reiki: Guiding energy through the body by holding the hands over the body.
  • Reflexology: Massaging the reflex zones on hands and feet to stimulate energy flow in corresponding areas of the body.
  • Shamanic healing: Healing by a shamanic practitioner who enters a meditative state to examine and manipulate energies in the spirit realm.
  • Crystal healing: Promoting energy flow using the distinct crystalline shapes and energies of specific stones.
  • Acupuncture: Using thin needles to stimulate energy points throughout the body.
  • Sound healing: Activating energetic flow in different organs using certain instruments and tones.
  • Qigong: Breathing exercises that promote greater energy flow.

Benefits of Energy Healing

Energy healing techniques help you elevate your vibe and live your best life at a high energetic level. The experience of having poor energy flow is like paddling your canoe up a boggy river compared to the exhilarating experience of moving easily along a clear waterway with a smooth, steady current. Energy healers help you tap into the full power of the universe's infinite energy so that it can flow through you unhampered. Effective energy healing offers a wealth of benefits for your physical, mental, and emotional states.

Accelerated Healing

Energy healing is something of a panacea, used to treat a wide variety of conditions. Patients often stack energy healing on top of other therapies because it offers no adverse reactions when used alongside medications. Patients have pursued energy healing for conditions as diverse as:

  • Infertility.
  • Cancer
  • Heart disease.
  • Crohn's disease.

Though it's difficult to separate the effects of energy healing from the effects of medication, self-reported results are promising. One study of breast cancer patients found that they enjoyed better physical functioning and easier breathing when they were receiving reflexology treatments. Another study found that reiki is better than a placebo at reducing blood pressure and heart rate. 

If you're suffering from a chronic health condition, energy healing may give you the boost you need to optimize your other treatments and get the results you want.

Pain Relief

New cases of chronic pain are more prevalent than new cases of depression, diabetes, and high blood pressure. This is an epidemic of major proportions, affecting as many as 21% of adults. Pain medications can be addictive and dangerous, which is one of many reasons people are flocking to alternative treatment methods. There's evidence that energy healing can help patients manage chronic pain and improve quality of life. Healing touch, acupuncture, and reiki have all been studied as legitimate treatment methods for keeping pain at bay.

Improved Mental Health

Adulting is hard, but energy healing can help. If you're like so many of us, living life in hyperdrive, some mindful energy healing sessions can help you slow down, ground your energies, and come back to the moment. Reiki and qigong have both proven effective in reducing depression and anxiety, and acupressure has been shown to improve the emotional fallout when it's that time of the month. Energy healing can help you glow up, working from the inside out to recharge your mental health.

Energy healing is designed to promote balance and stability. When you're suffering from poor mental health, these are often the last words you'd use to describe your mental state. Practitioners of therapies such as reiki look for the areas where your energy is disrupted to smooth out those kinks and get your life force flowing again. As this river of internal energy begins moving, you'll start to experience peace and relief from stress.

Better Sleep

Energy healing is an extremely relaxing experience. Blocked energies can keep you up at night, while a steady and healthy flow of energy allows you to sink into a state of comfort and well-being that offers a supremely satisfying night of sleep. In a study of burnt-out health care professionals, reiki treatments helped decrease the stressed-out fight-or-flight feeling so these individuals could finally unwind and get a better night's sleep.

Finding the Right Energy Healer

Energy healing is a unique practice that requires training, knowledge, and skill. It's important to work with an experienced energy healer who has a strong background in their chosen area. While you can learn to manipulate your own energy fields through meditation and diligent practice, you're unlikely to get the same results as with an energy healer. 

Carefully consider your goals for the session so you can share these with your healer. Are you suffering from chronic pain, insomnia, anxiety, or mental fogginess? Do you have a specific health condition that you hope to treat? Or do you need to recharge your overall well-being? Be prepared for a unique experience with your healer. Individuals often experience a strong emotional release, muscle tremors, tingling, or dizziness during energy healing sessions.
