A Definition of Energy Healing

A possible energy healing definition can be the following: It is a holistic approach to assist every one of us in their return journey to good health.

Are there other possible definitions of energy healing? Of course. It depends on the school of thought about how the energy transfer within the human body is viewed and described.

However, generally speaking, it is acknowledged that energy therapy encourages the body to draw upon its natural healing ability by opening up the flow of energy, clearing emotional blockages and detoxifying itself.

The human energy field sets the foundation for the physical body. So, if the energy field goes wrong, this will eventually affects the physical body. A disease and ill-heath manifest themselves first in our energy field before showing up on our physical bodies.

The human being is an open system of energy that lives in an energy environment which is constantly shifting and moving. A healthy body thrives in this environment with a clean continuous flow of balanced energy.

When there is a conflict with the environment around us (for example the unhealthy food we eat, common day stress from work or relationships, the quality of the polluted air and water we breathe, etc.) a healthy energy system is able to release this excessive energy immediately because our natural flow of energy always moves towards generating perfect health and well-being.

As an analogy, just as water surrounds the sea creatures and is vital for fish species, the surrounding energy field baths our bodies through and through to keep us alive. A healthy fish swallows up water to get nourishment before releasing it.

Likewise, the human being does not just swallow air to breath but also –through the various energy centres of his/her body, called chakras- absorbs the surrounding energy force, or lifeforce, to revitalize himself or herself before letting go off the extra energy that is not needed.

This is why, regardless of the energy therapy definition that we may use, the chakras are pictured like two joined-up funnels or channels (see Figure 1) to suck the universal energy from one end in order to heal and revitalize the body before releasing the unused part of this energy current from the other end. We will review the nature of these energy centres or chakras in the next section.

However, it suffices to say that when faced with difficulties in our life, we tend to hold this unresolved energy in our bodies, instead of let go off it.

This creates blockages in our energy field which then depletes our vitality and can lead to ill-health and suffering. It explains then why when a person suffers from stress feel like his/her head on the verge of exploding: his/her head is like a balloon being inflated with an energy flow whose exit path has been blocked!

Blockages and imbalances in the energy body often manifest themselves as physical ailments, stress, sleep disorders (such as sleeplessness) and other emotional ailments.

With my assistance, as a skilled energy healing therapist, you will be guided into bringing these blockages to light and releasing them. This enables healing on all levels including physical health, emotional well-being, relationships and spiritual realization.

My way of energy healing therapy provides an effective, non-invasive means to rebalance the mind, body and soul, thus allowing the patient to move back to his/her natural state of health, wholeness, healing, and balance.

As an experienced therapist I will also guide you to discover the cause of your condition. This will take the healing deeper and will encourage you in creating your own health and wellbeing.

One of the best practical illustrations of energy healing definition that I have experienced myself is the fact that it has been observed that under intense energy healing therapy, tired/under-performing organs and broken/shattered bones heal more rapidly: I personally have witnessed this amazing healing effect on shattered bones when practicing in a healing centre in London-UK!!

The hospital medical doctor could not believe that a completely shattered bone that usually takes months to mend, locked in plaster, took only…three weeks under intense energy healing therapy.

As a post-scriptum, for the visitors seeking a deeper definition and understanding of energy healing therapy and its implications, I have listed some books for you that might satisfy your curiosity and thirst for knowledge...they most certainly did so in my case!
