I consider "energy healing" the process of channelling healing energy through me (not from me) into you, so your body/mind/emotion has the energy it needs to heal itself. As a healer, I touch you with the intent that "whatever energy frequency you need, may it please flow through me". And, I create a safe and sacred space for your healing process.
Many energies can be used for healing and balancing. I think of the spectrum of healing energies as a radio dial. Every station is broadcast from a specific location, has a specific frequency (the numbers on the dial), and can make you feel differently depending on what is broadcast. News feels different from soft rock, which feels different from classical music. The earth-based energies (some of what I use in healing sessions) can be thought of as one station on the dial - a station that feels grounding, a little like warm molten lava moving through your body. Reiki can be thought of as another station - the energy of unconditional love, free flowing, more like light than lava.
Why does energy healing work? Modern science tells us that all matter is made of energy. Deepak Chopra offers a wonderful analogy about the amount of space (or "pure potential" or "love" or "energy" or "God" or...) that exists in each atom, the basic building block of matter. He says that the distance between the nucleus of an atom (which used to be considered solid and is now theorized to be strings of energy) and the closest electron (no longer considered matter - now thought of as energy) is, relatively speaking, the same as the distance between the earth and the sun. This is alot of space!!
So, our bodies are energy. The physical part of us is denser than our aura, or human energy field, but energy nonetheless. When our energy field gets out of balance, dis-ease can result. Energy healing sessions can support us in coming home to ourselves, feeling clear and centered, happier, healthier, and a whole lot more!
