Over the years, energy healing has emerged as a great way to maintain a constant state of vitality. But the truth is, we know little about its origins and capabilities.
To begin with, energy healing is a form of complementary medicine where the body’s energy systems are activated to remove blocks. Removing the energetic blocks enables the body to heal itself. The healing is based on the belief that the human body has an energy field that affects health and well-being. The goal is to restore a balance of energy in the body, both physically, mentally, and emotionally.
The term itself originates in the 80s. Energy healing is also referred to as subtle energy healing, vibrational medicine, and mind-body medicine. Below are facts about energy healing;
Studied for thousands of years
Reiki, the Japanese version of energy healing, dates back to the 1900s. The Chakras system dates earlier than that—between 1500 and 500 BC as per early Hindu texts dating. The earliest is perhaps the Chinese Meridian system, which dates as far back as 2500 BC. The Meridian system believes that there are energy superhighways in the body. It is used in practicing acupuncture.
All these cultures use different methods to stimulate the body to heal naturally. They have in common the belief in internal energy within the body.
Based on Scientific principles
Energy healing tends to have a similar belief with laws of Physics. Physics says that matter is made up of molecules, and anything solid has vibrating elements. According to energy healing beliefs, humans also have similar vibrations.
Happy people vibrate at higher frequencies, according to this belief. Furthermore, it also applies to places.
Different types of accessible energy healing modalities
You can find different energy healers anywhere you go. Each with different techniques that achieve the same results.
Some of the popular ones are acupuncture, massage, and reflexology. In acupuncture, the healer uses small needles to stimulate energy flow. In reflexology, the healer stimulates pressure points on the hands, feet, and ears to unblock energy and promote healing. Massage releases tension in the muscle and allows deep relaxation.
The truth is that we are at our best when our energies are well-aligned and balanced. The constant state of vitality is the beginning of our journey to discovering who we are and what we can do.
