Energetic Healing Massage
What is Energetic Healing?
Energetic Healing is an umbrella term for any therapy that manipulates the energy circuits in our physical or subtle bodies to regain balance and facilitate our body's innate healing mechanisms.
Some of the more well know therapies that could fall under the heading 'energetic healing' include Reiki, Reflexology, Kinesiology, Thought Field Therapy and Acupuncture. However, energetic healing also encompasses lesser known natural therapies such as: Aura and Chakra balancing; Flower and Vibrational Essences, Crystal Healing, Colour Therapy, Spiritual Healing, and other forms of bodywork. Energetic healing practitioners are usually trained in a number of modalities and will combine these in their own unique way. Many combine intuitive skills with their practical and theoretical skills.
Energetic healing takes a holistic approach that looks beyond the physical to manipulating the subtle energy systems (meridians, auric bodies, chakras, nadis) where the cause of the disease can be located. Trauma, emotional and mental stress, false belief systems, physical distress, environment stress, and other blocks to our personal growth can be stored in the energy fields of our bodies, impacting our ability to function at our full potential.
Energetic healing facilitates the healing process by clearing blocks in the energy fields, repairing and rebalancing the energy so that the body can move to its optimal level of balance from where it is able to access its inherent ability to heal itself.
What is energy & how is it connected to ill-health?
Quantum physics has acknowledged that we are all made up of energy, as is everything around us. It is the most basic building block of life, but like the air we breathe most people can't see it. Energy flows through everything and creates everything. Even our thoughts and emotions are energy. It is just a difference in the vibrational frequency of energy that gives us the illusion of substance and separation, rather like water moving from solid ice at slower vibration, to fluids and then to steam at higher vibrations.
Our personal energies are delicately balanced and we can become sick or feel 'not quite right' when our energy flows are disturbed or blocked. Energy imbalances can result from both internal and external factors.
Internal factors impacting our energy system include:
• anxiety & stress
• childhood programming
• limiting beliefs
• neurological, biochemical, and structural imbalances
• existential fears and limiting spiritual beliefs
• remaining in situations that are not fulfilling or in harmony with our needs
External factors impacting our energy systems include:
• environmental stresses & toxins
• geopathic phenomena
• astrological phenomena
the mind, body and spirit and achieve a holistic healing. Knowing
the connections and energy relationships means the nature of the
disease and its location can guide us to where an energy block or
imbalance is occurring, as well as what we need to do energetically
to clear that block.
Disease is our body's mechanism of telling us that our energy is not flowing harmoniously and that something is not working in our lives. If we don't pay attention to the initial messages, the warnings will become increasingly severe until we take are forced to take notice. Once we are aware of this "law", we can regard illness in a more positive light, so long as we then act upon it and make appropriate changes necessary to heal.
Energy is within and around us all the time, but our consciousness enables us to activate it and make it vital. I usually need to reiterate to people that just because we can't see something, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. We can't see air, but we know we breathe it to keep us alive. We also can't see electricity, atoms, electromagnetic fields, sound, radio waves or the weather, yet we can see or hear the indirect results of these in physcial form. Everyone's perception differs and an increasing number of people are able to perceive things using 'extra-sensory perception' that others may not. Today, more and more people are able to perceive energy in some way and know it as a very 'tangible' phenomenon. Following your intuition is a simple way to start.
energies with feelings of warmth, coolness, tingling or
relaxation. It is quite common for clients to fall asleep or
drift off during a treatment. This is normal and allows for
deep healing to occur at an unconscious level.
Clients may experience some form of emotional release during a session. This may be anything from a fit of the giggles to tears! Again, this is perfectly normal and should an emotional release occur, it is important not to suppress it. Releasing the emotion enables healing to occur. Emotional releases may also be experienced after a treatment, and again should be allowed to occur without suppression.
On rare occasions, depending on what is going on for the client at the time, they may experience restlessness or resistance to the healing work. It is important to honor this, while recognizing it as a final barrier that the subconscious is putting up to prevent healing occurring. It usually means the client needs to face something or have awareness around something that has been deeply held, but that needs to be released before the client can move on.
Following a treatment, it is very important that the client drinks the recommended daily consumption of water for several days afterwards to flush away any toxins that may have been released. Otherwise it is possible that clients could experience headaches or feel very tired after the treatment. It is similar to the process that occurs with dietary cleanses/detoxes.
Some clients will immediately feel an improvement, while for others the integration of the energetic change may take several days. In the latter case, the client may experience varying emotional states, memories of past events or changing physical symptoms. When this occurs the client is actually "processing" and clearing "stuff" as a result of the energetic changes. This is sometimes referred to as a healing crisis, but it is just the body's way of releasing what needs to be cleared and to bring our awareness to what we to be let go of and what is no longer benefiting us.
