There are so many ways in which the human body reacts to its environment. Disease, in a way, becomes inevitable when you look at the constant change and interaction of the body with its environment. Energy healing techniques are very useful in healing the body naturally, by using the energy of one body and passing it on to another.

Energy healing techniques are a part of a larger alternate healing field known as the “Energy Medicine”. Many would think that this is a relatively newer field, but the fact is that these techniques have been practiced for a long time. Some of the oldest civilizations in the world have made use of energy healing techniques to get rid of disease and disorders. These techniques use the energy fields of the healer which are then channeled to the body of the patient. Some practitioners like to perform these energy healing techniques by using their own hands, while others use tools such as crystals for the healing practices.

When it comes to energy healing techniques, it is important to understand, that there is no one single way to do it right. Different energy healing techniques could benefit different people differently. A therapist would be in the best position to judge which energy healing techniques would be most beneficial for the patient.
There are several different kinds of energy healing techniques. Here are some of them which are most used all over the world.

This one of the most popular energy healing techniques in which pressure is applied to specific trigger points located all over the body. The pressure is applied manually, usually using the therapist’s fingers. Acupressure is used to treat a lot of different disorders. Motion sickness, side effects of chemotherapy, menstrual cramps, cancer related symptoms, stress, muscle tension, hormonal imbalances and nausea can be treated using this healing technique. Acupressure is based on the premise that our body is kept in good health due to the constant flow of energy, also known as life force or chi. If there is anything that blocks the flow of the energy, all the organs are not able to get the life force and these organs begin to get diseased.

Aromatherapy is among the many natural energy healing techniques in which plant materials are used. In this technique, oils extracted from the parts of a plant, are used to enhance the overall wellbeing as well as health. The essential oils are extracted from leaves, fruits, flowers, stems, roots and bark. These essential oils can be applied directly to the body, or vaporized to spread their aroma. The aroma can be inhaled to stimulate the various organs in the body. When applied on the skin, the compounds are absorbed through the skin. These then travel in the blood stream and help promote wellbeing. Aromatherapy, because of its ease of use and its pleasantness, has become an extremely popular alternate therapy. There are different essential oils, each of which has its own healing and therapeutic properties. These oils can help treat various conditions ranging from stress to ulcers and kidney stones.

Biofeedback is one of the most reliable energy healing techniques, which are used by clinicians all over the world. In this technique, people are trained to understand the signals of their body so that they can improve their own health this way. If there are paralyzed muscles in your body, using the biofeedback technique would help you regain movement. This technique is used both by physiologists and psychologist to treat physical conditions as well as stress and psychological conditions. Clinicians usually use complicated machinery to generate biofeedback.

Chakra balancing
Chakra Balancing is among many Asian therapies and energy healing techniques. Chakras are the gateways of energy, or wheels of light which have concentrated energy in them. There are thousands of chakras all over the body, but there are seven which are most crucial for channeling the energy all through the course of the body. To make the balancing and healing easier, each of the chakras is represented by a distinct color. The crown chakra is located at the top of the head. The next is the third eye chakra which is located right between your eyebrows; the throat chakra, which as its name suggests, is located at the throat; the heart chakra, located at the heart; solar plexus chakra, right above the navel; the sacral chakra, right below the navel and the base or root chakra which is at the base of the spine. You can energize these chakras yourself through a healing technique known as reiki. This can help you promote both good health and general wellbeing.

Craniosacral therapy
Craniosacral therapy is another healing technique which involves release of latent energy in the body. This therapy involves the use of massage. The therapist’s fingers are used to massage the bones of the skull of the patient gently. The spine and the pelvis are also massaged using this technique. The gentle massage in these crucial areas allows your body to release stress naturally, thus protecting you from stress related diseases and disorders. This massage also helps you improve body movement. A variation on chiropractic therapy, the craniosacral therapy is one of the most researched energy healing techniques.

Magnetic therapy
As its name suggests, magnetic therapy involves the use of magnets for relieving stress and treating diseases. You can use magnets of various sizes and shapes to magnetize the body’s energy fields. Magnetic therapy is one of the energy healing techniques which are used for treating the pain and discomfort caused by joint deterioration from arthritis. It can also relieve migraines and headaches as well as stress. You can also heal broke bones using this therapy, improve circulation and heal broken bones. Practitioners and proponents believe that this therapy can also help reverse degenerative diseases and even cancerous growths in the body. The therapy is performed by someone who understands the body’s natural magnetic and energy fields. The magnets are placed strategically all over the body to make the energy flow in your body better.
