What is Energy Healing?
“When all your energies are brought into harmony, your body flourishes. And when your body flourishes, your soul has a soil in which it can blossom in the world. These are the ultimate reasons for energy medicine—to prepare the soil and nurture the blossom.” – Donna Eden
Western science has now confirmed what eastern traditions have known for thousands of years – that we are energy beings, existing in multiple dimensions at the same time. How can this be? In a nutshell, recent breakthroughs in science have changed our perceptions of what we are made of. Atoms, once believed to be the smallest particles in existence, are themselves made up of subatomic energies, which have no solidity at all. Science tells us they are quite literally waves of information that vibrate. This information or energy is in fact light, which is adapted to create our energy field.
Energy Healing is a blanket term used to cover any therapy that manipulates the energy flow in our energy field to bring about balance and facilitate our body’s innate healing mechanisms. Traumatic events, emotional pain, mental stress and physical illness can be stored in the energy fields of our bodies as blockages, impacting our ability to function at our highest potential. Energy healing facilitates the healing process by clearing these blockages, and by repairing and renewing the energy so that the body can achieve an optimal level of balance from where it is able to heal itself.
Some examples of these therapies are Reiki, Reflexology, Kinesiology and Acupuncture, but energy healing also encompasses lesser-known therapies such as: Crystal Healing, Colour Therapy, Sound Healing and Chakra Balancing. Energy healing practitioners are often trained in a number of these modalities and will combine them with their intuitive abilities to offer a truly unique healing experience.
