Facts about Energy Healing

Adapted  by Ronald E. Moor

Energy healing has been used for thousands of years to aid the healing of virtually every known illness and injury. Hospital and clinics around the country are adopting these practices as meaningful and cost-effective ways to improve patient health care.

In fact, Dr. David M. Eisenberg of Boston’s Beth Israel Hospital found that one in every three Americans have used alternative healing methods such as Healing Touch. Studies have also shown that patients receiving energy healings not only recover significantly faster, they also experience much less pain, improving both patient care and reducing medical costs.

What can be treated?

Energy Healing accesses our human energy field to clear blocks and unconscious patterns on the mental, emotional, spiritual and physical levels of our being.  Every known disease can be treated with energy healing. Energy healing has been shown to be effective with serious illnesses such as multiple sclerosis, heart disease, and cancer. These methods are effective for treating physical ailments such as back pain, sore feet, inflammation of the joints, and other body aches, pains and fatigue.  It also deals with skin problems, cuts, bruises, broken bones, and headaches.

On the Emotional, Mental, and Spiritual levels, energy healing can help identify, re-program, and transform life-challenging situations. 

We are in relationship in every aspect of our lives: with others, with careers, with family dynamics, with our body and health, with our spiritual connections — and most importantly — with ourselves. Energy healing techniques support the process of uncovering unconscious elements that may be contributing to less than optimal living circumstances.  Gaining self-awareness and understanding is a powerful transformational tool to bring joy and balance into your life.

How does energy healing work? 

Every human being has a life force of energy which flows through them. The energy that exists within the physical body courses through pathways called by various cultures meridians or chakras. We also emanate an electro-magnetic energy field through and around our physical body often popularly called the aura, also known as our energetic body or Human Energy Field (HEF).

This energy field is vitally important to the organs and cells within our body and supports their natural function. When this energy flow is disrupted, it causes a diminished function within the organ at the cellular level. This becomes a main cause of illness.

How does the energy field work with our thoughts? 

The energy flowing within us and around us is responsive to our thoughts, feelings, and emotions.  When we have positive optimistic thoughts, we increase the flow of energy and will naturally feel better.

However, when we have negative thoughts, our energy is disrupted in many ways and diminished.  This can result in not feeling good, feeling sluggish, and can manifest itself as anger, or frustration. When prolonged, this eventually leads to illnesses.

Having a sound mindset and a positive outlook on life is equally important to balanced physical health.

How does the outside world and HEF affect us? 

As science uncovers more information on bio-chemical pathways and knowledge of the Human Energy Field and how the body works, the influences of the environment on health has become very clear.  Just as negative thoughts and feelings affect us, so does energy from the environment effects us.

Consider for a moment the attitudes and emotions of those around you, the foods we eat, and the fluids we drink, and more importantly the products we use every day in our homes and workplaces. All these things have a profound effect on our well-being and life.

Why is energy healing so important?

Energy healing and cleansing of the bio-chemical pathways is important for the proper function of our organs at a cellular level. Medical science has shown that each cell in the body has an electrical pathway of energy that is required to function. Without this energy, the cells and eventually the organs fail, and become diseased.

Having balanced body energy and bio-chemical pathways is not only vital, but necessary for restoring proper energy flow and health to the body, mind, and soul of a person.

Working with your Medical Doctors 

Growing numbers of medical doctors are supportive of hands-on energy healing. Those living with chronic and life-threatening diseases often work with both traditional medicine and holistic practitioners.  More and more hospitals and clinics offer holistic modalities as treatment options alongside more traditional approaches in integrative medicine programs.

Increasing numbers of clients have discovered that energy work partners well with psychotherapy. The energy healings frequently bring into conscious awareness old traumas that have contributed to unhealthy patterns and beliefs.  

A few local medical institutions which utilize energy healing are Abbott Northwestern Hospital – Institute for Health and Healing, North Memorial Hospital, Methodist Hospital, and Hennepin County Medical Center.
