Energy healing is a broad term used to describe a variety of holistic healing techniques that use the natural mind-body connection to promote emotional and physical wellbeing. By accessing, channeling, balancing, and manipulating the body’s natural energy centers, energy healing processes may help support health.

While practices vary in techniques and energy healing tools, each is based on the idea that every aspect of the body is intimately connected and that by connecting the subconscious and conscious, the whole body can be engaged to promote health and well-being. Unlike the prescription medications and invasive surgeries of conventional medical practices, energy healing combines powerful physical, mental, and spiritual aspects to enable the body’s natural healing. Our energy healing courses can help you connect the subconscious and conscious, enabling the body’s ability to help itself.

Energy Healing Has A Long History

The concept of energy healing can be traced back several thousand years to an ancient Indian spiritual tradition of universal energy called prana. Prana, or the breath of life, is based on the idea that universal energy is the basic component and source of every life form. In the third millennium B.C., the ancient Chinese people founded the belief that all matter is pulsing with vital energy they called ch’i. This universal energy is composed of two opposing forces — yin and yang — that when balanced, promote optimal physical and mental health. The common holistic practice of acupuncture, for example, is designed to help balance the yin and yang energies in the body.

Today, energy healing practitioners continue to use these and other similar ideologies to help people access conscious and subconscious energies that may promote prime mental and physical health.

Types of Energy Healing or Energy Work

Thanks to prehistoric roots, the types of energy healing are virtually endless. There are, however, several energy healing modalities that are prominently used by practitioners across the globe. Many energy healing books have been written by experienced authors. These types of energy healing include:

Chakras Play A Crucial Role In Energy Work

The body’s seven main chakras are each associated with a different set of organs and systems within the body. Because the entire concept of energy healing focuses on maintaining balance and health between the mind, body, and spirit, ensuring all seven chakras are balanced is the key. It’s important to note, too, that each chakra corresponds with a different area of the body that uses a substantial amount of energy. The Heart chakra, for example, contains enough electromagnetic energy that it can be measured from several feet away. However, if the Heart chakra is closed or underactive, the flow of energy through the chakra is hindered, which can have a domino effect on the other energy centers of your body. Chakras also each represent various aspects of consciousness along with parts of the physical body, so maintaining well-balanced chakras may be essential when it comes to promoting a healthy mind and spirit — both key aspects of energy healing. Because of this interconnectedness, it’s not uncommon for tension in a particular part of consciousness to ultimately result in physical symptoms. If you experience a bad relationship breakup, for example, you might feel it in your Heart chakra and could experience tension in the nerves associated with your heart. Over time, that held tension could intensify and manifest itself in outward physical symptoms that chakra healing and chakra balancing could resolve. By regularly practicing energy healing techniques like chakra healing, you can address and may potentially even reverse the symptoms of physical disease and illness.

Trapped Emotions or Emotional Baggage Can Cause Chakra Imbalance

In the holistic community, the phrase “Trapped Emotions” is commonly used to describe any unconscious emotional energies which exist as a result of intense or traumatic emotional events that have not been fully processed and released from the body or mind. When emotional energy like this becomes trapped, various organs or glands in the body could possibly become victims. Because each of the seven chakras correlates with an organ in the body, when an emotion becomes trapped in a body organ, it could interfere with the flow of energy through the chakra. The trapped energy of the Trapped Emotions may begin to cause disruption, physical discomfort, uneasiness, drastic emotional changes, and sadness. Thankfully, through energy healing tools & techniques like muscle testing and chakra balancing, these emotions can be identified, processed, and extinguished from the body, restoring a healthy, balanced chakra system.

The Emotion Code® is a methodology developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson during his years of practice as a holistic chiropractor.

Dr. Nelson is also the creator of The Body Code™, a self-study course on energy healing. It is designed to allow anyone, with minimum training using energy healing modalities, to find and eliminate virtually any imbalance that may be causing bodily discomfort or malfunction. At the heart of the Body Code is patented software that enables muscle testing to be transformed into perhaps the most powerful self-healing tool available in the world today.
