Find Holistic Wellness Services and Recharge at Kansas City Wellness Club
Curiosity about energy healing has increased in recent years as medical patients seek alternative therapies to complement the medicine they receive from their physicians. Desperate for relief from chronic illness, side effects from medication, and daily stress, people see the value in receiving energy healing from a reputable practitioner experienced in holistic wellness.
Is energy healing right for you? It could very well be! Let’s explore various energy healing modalities and what they can do for you.
What is Energy Healing?
Energy healing is a holistic practice that activates your body’s energy system to remove blocks. These energetic blocks prevent the body from healing itself. In complementary and alternative medicine, energy healing includes modalities like Reiki, Tai Chi, acupuncture, massage therapy, reflexology, and more.
The energy in our bodies comes from the earth. When the energy is blocked, we may experience chronic pain and other illnesses that just don’t seem to go away. Energy healers know that disease results from an energy imbalance or blockage, and, when paired with Western medicine, their practices can help relieve pain and other symptoms of ailments.
Energy healing does not always have immediate results and requires you to be patient and continue the work at home. Simple exercises you can do on your own can help restore your energy flow, such as putting your hands on the part of your body that needs extra care and directing your energy to it. A trained energy healer can help you continue your care.
Massage Therapy as Energy Healing
Just as any energy healing modality has the practitioner “lay hands” and convey vital energy into the recipient, massage therapy is a powerful tool, too. Polarity therapy, developed by an osteopath in the 20th century, involves balancing energy using light touch, while incorporating deeper massage techniques.
Some massage therapists in Kansas City incorporate similar energy techniques into their massage sessions to help their work be more effective at relieving muscle tension, adhesions, and stress, while promoting the flow of lymph throughout the body, an important step in detoxification.
Recharge with Reiki
Reiki is a Japanese technique for reducing stress and promoting relaxation and healing. This energy-healing modality is based on the idea that an invisible “life force energy” flows through us; this is what makes us alive. If your life force energy is low, you are more likely to get sick or feel stress.
Reiki is administered by a practitioner laying hands on areas that need treatment. People who have received reiki treatments say it feels like their body is “glowing radiance” as the energy flows around and through them. Because Reiki is perfectly safe, anyone can receive benefits from it. It works especially well in conjunction with other medical or therapeutic techniques to promote a faster recovery or find relief from medication side effects.
Reiki works by essentially recharging your metaphorical batteries, which can run low due to illness, over-scheduled days, stress, exhaustion, and more. Reiki sessions are known to help keep stress levels low, so you can face your day feeling reset and renewed. In short, a healing session can balance and restore your body’s natural energies to increase vitality, balance your emotions, and improve your health.
Using Healing Crystals
Crystals from the earth are popular tools used in energy healing because they can connect us to the healing and grounding energy put forth by the earth. Ancient forms of medicine have relied on crystals to promote the flow of good energy and help rid the body of negative energy, resulting in physical and emotional benefits. Philosophies borrowed from Hinduism and Buddhism lead modern healing practices with crystals.
Each type of crystal has a specific purpose or power. Trained energy healers know exactly which crystal to select to help you clear energy blockages and feel better. Although they are powerful tools, they don’t work alone; you need to set your intentions before using the powers of healing crystals.
Some of the most commonly used crystals are:
Rose Quartz. This pinkish-hued quartz stone can provide comfort during times of grief and encourage self-worth. It’s also known to restore trust and harmony in relationships.
Jasper. This stone empowers your spirit to get you through stressful times. It protects you from and absorbs negative vibes.
Obsidian. For the physical body, obsidian can aid in digestion and detoxification, while reducing pain and cramps. It also is known to help get rid of emotional blockages and help you discover your true self.
Turquoise. This blue crystal has powers to help heal your mind, body, and soul, especially your respiratory system, skeletal system, and immune system. It’s also a good luck charge that helps you balance your emotions.
Amethyst. This purple stone helps to promote sobriety and overcome insomnia. On a physical level, amethyst boosts hormone production, cleanses the blood, and relieves pain and stress.
Bloodstone. This aptly-named crystal cleanses the blood and improves circulation. It can also help you feel less irritable, angry, and impatient.
Sapphire. A precious gemstone, sapphire helps to heal eye issues, blood disorders, depression, anxiety, and insomnia.
Ruby. In ancient times, rubies were used to remove toxins from the blood and improve circulation. Ruby can also improve your sensuality, intellect, and self-awareness.
