Energy medicine, energy therapy, energy healing, vibrational medicine, psychic healing, spiritual medicine or spiritual healing are branches of alternative medicine based on a pseudo-scientific belief that healers can channel healing energy into a patient and effect positive results. This idea itself contains several methods: hands-on, hands-off, and distant (or absent) where the patient and healer are in different locations.
What is Reiki & Energy Work?
Reiki/Energy Work is a non-invasive, painless and stress-free complementary therapy. There is an ancient belief in traditional Chinese Medicine that all physical bodies have a life force or “chi” that flows around us along energy paths called meridians, with centres of energy at various points called chakras. Each chakra or energy center is responsible for certain body systems and areas of the body and can also be linked to certain emotions. Sometimes, due to emotional upset or physical trauma, chakras become blocked or sluggish and the flow of energy cannot get through. Further emotional or physical trauma can then result and manifest into a sense of feeling very disconnected from the world and those around us.
