Energy healing shares a symbiotic relationship with western medicine practices, a balance that affirms the power of both these healing modalities.  Energy healing includes Reiki, Qi Gong, Tai Chi, Pranic Healing, and many other modalities.  The body can react adversely to an imbalance or blockage in our body’s vital energy. Can energy healing help? Here are a few ailments that the practice can address.


Stress reduction is linked to an improvement of many health conditions, like heart disease and hypertension. Stress is a fact of life but there are ways to approach and reduce it with energy healing. The physical manifestations of stress like tightness in the arms, neck, and temple respond to healing practices like acupuncture or yoga.

Rooted in the idea that energy flow can be unblocked, ailments like stress can be released with energy healing and issues that stress can cause like sleeplessness can be relieved. Simple body movements and adjustments can help balance your energy and manage your stress, removing the blockage, and healing your body naturally.


Self-healing techniques to address depression and connect the energy body to the physical body is not always immediately visible however using energy healing used to ground your energy can ease the depression. Research shows that reiki can be impactful with a reduction in stress, anxiety, and depression. Even chronic pain, which can increase anxiety and depression, can stimulate the flow of energy and lessen symptoms.


If there is a lot of energy trying to flow through the body and the body’s channels are blocked, energy gets trapped and can cause chronic pain syndromes like fibromyalgia. The place where the pain emanates may not be the source of the blockage. For example, soreness or swelling in the shoulder could have originated in the elbow.

Healing energy directed to any part of the body that needs healing can be effective. Techniques like Pranic healing, based on energizing the body by cleaning out the aura and chakras of pain. The body can be healed by gathering energy through spending time outdoors, listening to healing music, or being aware of the stagnation of energy blocks that exacerbates stress, depression, and pain. Energy healing can restore normal energy flow in the body and facilitate healing on a deeper level.

Illnesses may manifest physically yet still have significant spiritual underpinnings. This can be true for illnesses that have atypical or premature presentations. Energy healing helps the seeker to find what was lost, remove negative energies, and gain an immeasurable sense of recovery for your soul.
