What is Energy Healing?

What is Energy Healing? I have found there is no simple answer to this question.
My introduction to Energy Healing was unexpected and took me down an amazing path I could never have seen coming. When I experienced my first Reiki session, I was pretty skeptical, and honestly didn’t quite understand what it was myself. But, not to be one to shoot something down without trying, I figured there was no harm in at least trying – I was pleasantly surprised.
While the calm and relaxation I experienced during my session would have been enough to make me a believer, there was so much more. I could feel, literally feel, the energy that flowed through my body. I could feel aches and pains that I had just assumed would be a permanent part of my adult life, start to dissipate and melt away. It was as if my body was being reenergized and “rebooted” to a healthier state. I lost track of place and time, and I’m pretty sure I fell asleep at some point, which in itself was impressive, since I have suffered from insomnia since I was a child. After my treatment, while I felt amazing, I found I felt curious, and I wanted to know more about this whole “Reiki thing”.
And so my journey into Energy Healing began. It amazed me as I began my research and training, to feel this energy flowing through me. I learned how energy flows through the body, and how a disruption in this flow can cause a multitude of problems to a person’s health. I learned how to handle this energy and how to use it as a tool to heal others physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. What an amazing gift! While my initial passion had always been in psychology and counseling, my main goal has always been to help others. So, how could I possibly ignore such a powerful tool as Energy Healing?
Even as I have learned more and more about the amazing force of energy and how it affects each of us, I still find that I have a hard time answering that unavoidable initial question – what is it? While I try my best to explain PRISMology, Reiki, LaHo-Chi and other energy healing techniques, I have found the best way to understand it, is to experience if for yourself. After you have experienced the wonders of Energy Healing, you may find that the questions fade away, and all that matters is that it does work. And for me – that’s better than any answers I could ever give.
