What is Energy Healing?

Have you ever thought, “Wow, the energy of this place is amazing,” or “Ugh, I can’t stand being in this room.” How about, “Boy, that person really brightened my day.”

Well, that’s all part of the energy that’s around us. It can be felt without even realising. Maybe you “connect” with some people, maybe you don't. Our language is limited but we seem to intuitively know about energy. We talk about it, we feel it, we tend to ignore it, brush it off and carry on. It's described in Chinese medicine as meridians or in Eastern medicines as chakras or biofields. These are all energy.

When energy is flowing and in harmony things seem light and easy. Some call it happy or content. When the energy is blocked or dampened things tend to feel heavy or sad. Anger takes hold. Life become difficult and overwhelming. Blocked energy can cause pain, illness, disease, anger, or isolation.

Energy healing is about aligning our energy meridians, chakras, or biofields to get the energy flowing freely. It can bring about a sense of peace and calmness. Anxiety tends to drop by the wayside. It can help with illnesses and can decrease pain. Energy healing is used extensively in hospitals and clinics in North America and is here in New Zealand. An example of one is called Healing Touch.

Healing Touch was developed in the USA by registered nurse Janet Mentgen. She found it helped with patients’ pain and helped those in palliative care become more peaceful. Because it was so successful, she realised it needed to be shared. Education and training in Healing Touch began in 1989. It’s spread through the medical community and was incorporated in New Zealand in 2003.

There is science behind Healing Touch. Follow this link for more information and the practice of Healing Touch.

In our clinic, Sandra has found herbal medicine to be extremely helpful for clients. Herbs, nutrition, lifestyle advice, and Bach flowers have helped so many people yet something was lacking. There was the emotional component, of course, but there was something else. Through conversations with other practitioners, healers, and clients, an energetic part of healing showed itself time and time again. So with the same fascination of herbal medicine study, Sandra is now a student of energy healing. Healing Touch was chosen due its medicinal applications and the research that supports it.

Sandra has completed four levels of a five level program. She is now an apprentice practitioner in the field of HTNZ. Very exciting!
