An Overview of Energy Healing Techniques – Improving Your Health & Wellbeing


Energy healing techniques

Pranic healing therapies define a set of procedures that use “vitality” to treat and remedy sickness or impending illness. A form of complementary and alternative medicine based on the belief that vital power flows through the human body.

When one says energy, the thing that comes to mind is a non-physical thing that cannot be taken as medicine.

These energy healing techniques, however, should be treated as complementary to scientific treatments required for severe diseases (especially for cancer patients). Experts show that these energy healing techniques work well with modern and scientific methods of treatment. Moreover, energy healing therapy can reduce the harmful side effects of modern medicines.

Accurate enough, one doesn’t need to go to places and spend a lot just to find a good energy healer.

Ways Of Energy Healing

Emotional Freedom Therapy (EFT)

Also called Meridian Tapping, this technique follows the theory behind acupuncture. It is believed that a person’s meridian system, which is composed of one’s energy pathways, is blocked and causes physical (or emotional) symptoms.

In short, this blocking is the source of imbalance.

“Borrowing from principles of ancient Eastern medicine such as acupuncture and acupressure, and combining them with modern approaches to cognitive healing, the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) provides a unique therapeutic tool for individuals hoping to move through their emotional barriers,” according to Dr. John D. Moore, PhD.

  1. Without the needles as what is mainly used in acupuncture,
  2. EFT targets the major meridian points by lightly tapping and massaging them using only hands.

Flower Essences Therapy

This kind of energy technique uses the unseen energy and forces of the reproductive part of the plant – the flower – to create harmony in a person’s system. Flowers are said to have a high level of vibration, the highest among the other parts of a plant, which can shoo away the low vibration from the negative qualities. Regarding preparation, only fresh flowers still with morning dew are the ones being collected to be turned into an essence.

Each kind of flower, however, has different healing targets.


Flower Essences Usages

Flower essence therapy should not be confused with aromatherapy. Unlike the latter, flower essences are either taken orally under one’s tongue or used as a massage oil to the body.

Aura Energy Cleansing Therapy

The concept of an aura is that every person has a field of energy and this field can be influenced/affected by other people’s power. Everyone is vulnerable to negativity because our energy fields can absorb even the bad day of your officemate. “Control how much time you spend listening to stressful people, and learn to say “No.”, said Judith Orloff M.D. The use of drugs can also taint auras. In turn, these negative energies harbored by the energy field are manifested through physical exhaustion and mental problems.

Aura Healing Techniques

An aura healing technique that can be easily done in the comfort of one’s home:

    • indulging in a warm salt bath (preferably sea salt)
    • making an aura-cleanser spray out of essential oils (lemon, lime, juniper) and spraying it toward you
    • carrying a crystal with you; placing a crystal on your bed as this is a known aura purifier.
    • wearing your favorite color
    • getting reacquainted with nature; sunlight is also a known and effective aura purifier

Feng Shui (Color healing Therapy)

This Chinese art believes that the order of one’s surroundings affects the flow of positive energy. “Feng Shui is based on the belief that there is a continuous flow of energy between humans and their physical surroundings,” said Frank T. McAndrew Ph.D. This technique suggests that color gives off vibrational energy to negate bad vibes resulting in physical weakness and other symptoms. Designing one’s own home of non-random colors can turn it into a healing sanctuary.

Like in the flower essence therapy, each color also represents and brings different fields of vibe to a room.

    • Green: Harmony, Love, Communication
    • Blue: Calmness, Peace
    • Violet: Intuition, Meditation
    • Red: Stability, Passion
    • Orange: Productivity, Emotional Expression
    • Yellow: Personal Power, Intellect

Final Thoughts And Insight

Regardless of the technique and type of energy healing to be used, the most critical step of successful energy therapy is one’s intention and the mindset in general. Take note, however, that energy therapy should not be used as a substitute for medical care.
