The search for a holistic, energy healing method doesn’t have to be daunting. As you learn more and delve into the ancient practices of the energy transmission centers, it can be overwhelming. Breathe! If you are new to exploring energy healing, there are a few common practices that you may have heard of that could be right for you.


The traditional Japanese practice of Reiki dates to the early 20th century and is well known as an energy healing therapy. Reiki is a combination of two Japanese words – ‘Rei’ translated as “God’s wisdom” and ‘Ki’ meaning “energy”. This practice works well in conjunction with traditional medicine and involves hand movement techniques and designated symbols to channel energy from the universe to heal the body. Reiki is an impactful therapy for ailments like colds and stomach aches.

Crystal Healing

These gemstone treatments are a popular form of complementary and alternative medicine. Stones and crystals like rose and clear quartz or obsidian are used to draw out impurities from the body. Different types of crystals have their own healing properties that target different types of emotional, spiritual, and physical needs. By repelling negative energy from the body, crystals can promote the flow of good energy and help rid the body and mind of damaging energy for positive benefits.

Crystals often have attributes they are associated with that make them desirable for practitioners such as citrine promotes optimism, tiger’s eye has harmonizing properties, and turquoise is a stone thought to promote sincerity.

Selecting a crystal is a straightforward process. Identify and understand what you are feeling prior to selecting a crystal. Once you identify the need you want to address, let your intuition guide you to the stone that is right for you.

Quantum Healing

Quantum healing therapy is based on the principle of resonance. This healing draws on a mixture of ideas of quantum mechanics, psychology, philosophy, and neurophysiology. This form of mind-body medicine popularized by Deepak Chopra in his book, Quantum Healing, is a therapy that escalates the body’s energy level through breathing exercises and energy flow visualization.

Not only does Quantum Healing impact the body on a spiritual level, is could potentially have positive impacts on the immune system. Through a fundamental change in consciousness, this practice is also thought to explain certain types of sudden and dramatic healing of the human body and other physical manifestations.

The most important thing you can do when searching for the energy healing that is right for you is to keep an open mind. Find positivity in your journey. You might be pleasantly surprised at what you uncover.
