Energy Healing: The Ultimate Guide to Holistic Practice

What is energy healing?

Energy healing is a holistic practice that uses the focus of intention and compassion to remove energetic blocks in order to promote positivity and high vibrational frequencies.

Energy healing has been shown to be beneficial in reducing stress and anxiety, as well as balancing and restoring the flow of energy in the body-mind.

This type of healing is based on the belief that our bodies are made up of energy fields which can become imbalanced, causing stress, anxiety, and illness.

Energy healing is said to help balance these fields and restore our body-mind to its natural state of well-being. 

Skeptical of how energy could possibly have an effect on our physical well-being? While energy healing is considered a pseudoscientific complementary or alternative medicine, there is increasing evidence that suggests it can be used to improve quality of life and boost the immune system.

Research has shown that energy therapies like Healing Touch and Reiki are effective complementary and alternative treatments for conditions like stress, anxiety, and pain.

In this blog post, we will explore the different types of energy healing, how they work, and what the research says about their efficacy.


What are the different types of energy healing?

There are many different types of energy healing practices, each with its own unique approach.


Different Types of Energy Healing


Some common types of energy healing include:

Reiki is a simple, natural and safe method of energy healing and self-improvement that can be beneficial for people of all ages. It has been effective in helping people with illnesses of all kinds and usually creates a beneficial effect. It also works in conjunction with all other medical or therapeutic techniques to relieve side effects and promote recovery, such as massage, acupuncture or physiotherapy.

While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. It has no doctrine, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn Reiki or to benefit from Reiki treatments. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and will work whether you believe in it or not. Because reiki comes from God, many people find that using reiki puts them more in touch with the experience of their religion rather than having only an intellectual concept of it.

There are many benefits of Reiki, both for the practitioner and for those who receive treatment.

How Does Energy Healing Work?

Energy healing works by clearing blockages in the energy field so that energy can flow freely throughout the body. This helps to promote balance and well-being. There are many different types of energy healing, but they all share the common goal of helping to improve the flow of energy in the body. This is believed to promote overall well-being and quality of life. 


How Does Energy Healing Work


The practitioner uses their hands to assess the flow of energy in the patient’s body. Once they have identified areas of imbalance, they use a variety of techniques to restore balance and harmony. When our energy is imbalanced, we may experience stress, anxiety, or illness. By restoring the flow of energy, we are able to improve our quality of life and promote natural well-being. 


Energy healing is not a traditional medical treatment and should not be used as a substitute for medical care. However, it can be used as an independent therapy or as an adjunct therapy to traditional medical care. Energy healing therapies are safe and gentle, and they can be used on people of all ages. If you are interested in exploring energy healing, please consult with a licensed and professional medical doctor like Dr. Guita Balakhane today.

What’s the future of energy healing?

Energy healing is a rapidly growing field that is merging quantum physics with biochemistry to therapeutically assess and treat energetic imbalances within the human biofield, which is also known as the human energy field. While quantum field dynamics are quantum mechanics theories involved in nuclear medicine and radiology, along with imaging diagnostics in biochemistry and biophysics therapies, they can also be used to treat disturbances within the subtle energy fields that maintain health and wellness. 


Future of Energy Healing


Through quantum physics, it is understood that at the atomic and molecular level, everything is in a constant state of motion, creating resonance. This helps to explain how energy healing can be used to effectively treat imbalances within the human energy field by restoring balance and homeostasis. While allopathic medicine focuses on treating the physical body, energy healing takes a holistic approach by also considering the mind and spirit.


In addition to quantum physics, other theories such as biophoton emissions, signal transduction, and cell signaling communication are also being used to further understand how energy healing works on the cellular level. As research continues to explore the potential of energy healing, it is likely that this modality will continue to gain popularity as an effective complementary treatment for both physical and mental health conditions.
