The general term for how I healed herself (and how she now helps others) is called energy therapy or energy healing, but the more specific type of practice I use is called energy psychology: a group of techniques that address the relationship between the energy system and emotions, thoughts, and behavior.
Here’s how it works.
Energy therapy is a set of techniques that are often used in mind-body-spirit healing.
Energy therapy is an approach that focuses on rebalancing the energy system of the body, affecting overall wellbeing. While it may seem that we are physical beings, we are actually a complex network of energies. This energy system is the basis of Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, as well as many other ancient healing modalities.
This energy system is at the core of how our brain functions, how our muscles and nerves receive messages from the brain, and more. You may be familiar with the concept of energy in the body because of the use of EEGs (measuring brain waves), EKGs (measuring the electrical activity of the heart) and other diagnostic medical tools.
When our energies are being disrupted, flow irregularly, or become sluggish and blocked, we can begin to experience both physical and emotional symptoms. This can include pain, fear, excessive worry, allergies, the inability to heal or recover from injury, and many other issues.
Energy therapy helps to re-balance these energies and instigate the body’s powerful self healing ability.
Pretty cool, right?
Energy therapy often works when nothing else has to:
- Helps you releases grief, trauma, fear and more
- Clears old beliefs, patterns and emotions
- Trigger the body’s natural healing ability
Accessing and balancing your body’s subtle energies can make a huge difference in your life. While energy therapies are definitely not a new concept (Chinese Medicine is based on the body’s energy system), they are finally gaining well-deserved attention.
