Energy-healing Therapy

Ajanta Bhattacharyya
Energy healing therapies enhance energy flow in the body and improve the immune system. These energy healing techniques form a part of alternative therapy which cater to improve the holistic health of an individual.
Energy, either physical or mental, is the very life blood of an individual. It has been observed that a physically and mentally energetic person surpasses all kinds of difficulties easily, and excels in life. All energy-healing techniques and therapies are aimed at reducing stress and anxiety, and providing physical, as well as mental relaxation.
They not only provide relief from chronic pain and illnesses, but also help in releasing negative beliefs and emotions.

The objective of energy-healing therapy is to make a person confident and relaxed. These healing techniques have proved to be more helpful than other kinds of medications and talk therapies.

Types of Energy Healing

There are different types of energy healing therapies used today. Some of these are:
  • Reiki
  • Quantum touch technique
  • Polarity therapy
  • Pranic healing techniques
  • Deep breathing techniques


Reiki is an effective energy healing technique used for stress reduction and relaxation. The 'rei' in reiki denotes universal and spiritual power, whereas the 'ki' stands for energy or vital force.
Being a Japanese technique, Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui for energy healing. Reiki has been applied to boost the innate energy that helps promote health, well-being, prosperity and long life. According to belief in this holistic-healing therapy, the recipient receives energy from the practitioner's hands placed near the body.
There are seven chakras of energy: the head, third eye, throat, heart, navel area, lower abdomen and base or last bone in the spinal cord. Under the practice of Reiki, physical and mental healing takes place through the practitioner placing his/her hands above the recipient, in sync with the head and heart chakra.
Reiki treats a person's physical, mental and emotional disorder and thereby provides tranquility and well-being. In distance reiki practice, practitioners use symbols from a distance to form a temporary connection between the practitioner and the recipient.

Quantum Touch Technique

Quantum touch technique is another powerful energy healing technique.
Here, the practitioners use meditation, visualization, and some breathing exercises to energize the recipient. This healing technique helps to reduce pain, liver enzymes, muscular skeletal disorders and also improves metabolism.

Polarity Therapy

Polarity therapy, developed by Randolph Stone is based on touch, verbal interaction, exercise, nutrition, and other methods. This energy-boosting therapy can be utilized to treat conditions like migraines, menopausal problems, digestive disorders, back pain and chronic fatigue syndrome.

Emotional Freedom Technique

Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as EFT, is a form of psychotherapy which works like emotional acupuncture and helps in releasing the negative beliefs and emotions.
Since this method involves tapping of the practitioner's fingertips on the patient's body, it is also known as EFT tapping therapy. This technique was created by Gary Craig, and is based on the same basis as acupuncture.
EFT healing therapy is applied mainly to eliminate negative emotions such as depression, anxiety, phobias, addictions, and eating disorders that break the harmony between the seven chakras.

Pranic Healing

Pranic healing techniques are based on scanning, cleansing, strengthening, and consequently restoring the energy of one's body. This technique is effective for disorders such as menstrual distress, migraines, stomach disorders, anxiety, depression, stress, sleep disorders and early satiety.


Deep breathing techniques, yoga and meditation are also fruitful, and can help reduce health issues like acid reflux, certain heart conditions, diabetes, headaches, depression, obesity, etc.
All these techniques have the following aims:
  • To provide relaxation
  • To make one free of doubt and fear
  • To reduce all kinds of pain
  • To lessen anxiety
  • To clear blocks that make one hesitate or give up
  • To assist in being enthusiastic and active about day-to-day activities
  • To make life happier and peaceful to live in
  • To improve functioning of the immune system
  • To help against insomnia
  • To improve the cardiovascular system, nervous system, gynecological system, and respiratory system
  • To energize the body
There's a saying that a healthy mind resides in a healthy body. Therefore, it is necessary for every individual to retain a healthy body to gain peace of mind. Energy-healing techniques work as stress busters and gently heal a disturbed mind to bring harmony in the body, mind, and soul.
