When it comes to energy healing, there is a gamut of diverse explanations among the different cultures of the world. From the viewpoint of TCM or traditional Chinese Medicine in Bellingham, energy healing eliminates any blockages in the energy channels or meridians which are the pathways that spread all across the body. Some healers think that energy healing works by stabilizing and balancing the chakras, a set of energy vortexes within the body that correlate with the endocrine glands. Then again, there are those who think that energy healing is nothing less than the work of almighty God.

The all-encompassing energy that animates and permeates our bodies and minds are known by different names in the various countries of the world. Among Western healers, it is called bio-energy, the Lakota Indians call it wakan, Indians refer to it as prana, in Hawaii, it is called mana, in Japan, it is called ki, and in China it is known as chi. Energy healing involves intensifying and directing this vital-force energy to strengthen the body of a person.

According to some scientists, energy healing works, in theory. Their reason why they believe it works is that people or things actually resonate together when they are placed in close proximity to each other. This explains why when kept alive in a lab and placed near each other, disembodied animal hearts start to beat in unison. One other evidence of energy healing is if you place a sad and happy person together, one person will begin to feel the other person’s emotions.

To set up a high vibrational field of energy, healers use their hands on the patient and the patient receiving the healing then starts to entrain and resonate as a reaction to this energy. The healer administering the therapy is not healing per se; he actually provides the patient with more life-energy that his body heals itself naturally based on its own spontaneous wisdom.

This healing modality works very well for pain, especially for back and neck pain. It appears to work well against internal problems such as those in the glands, organs, and other systems of the body. Spiritual and psychological problems can also be treated, as negative emotions are transformed into gratitude and joy.

Healers who perform energy healing should see to it that they don’t absorb the low energy state of their patients; apart from this, energy healing is totally safe. However, if you have just had an organ transplant or are taking drugs to suppress your immunity, this sort of healing is not advisable for you, as it is believed to strengthen immunity, which defeats the purpose of the treatment plan you are receiving.

Ask your healer how he feels at the end of the day when you meet him for the first time. If your healer says he is happy and energized, he is then probably a good healer, but if he complains of feeling drained and that he tolerates his suffering for the good of his patients, he probably isn’t that good of an energy healer.
