What is Energy Healing? Is it real or a fraud?
When discussing health in politically correct circles and academic research societies, “energy” and “touch” is seldom mentioned. Reiki is for example a modality that is usually neglected or ridiculed as an alternative approach, even though it has been scientifically demonstrated that as human beings, we are made of energy and light. Albert Szent-Gyorgi, the Hungarian biochemist who won the Nobel Prize in 1937 in physiology medicine known to have discovered Vitamin C and the components and reactions of the citric acid cycle, stated in one of his lectures during his work at the Marina biological laboratory in Woods Hole (Massachusetts):
“ In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy”.
This statement is based on the scientific law that every atom has electrons, particles containing electrical charge. Every atom is energy, and therefore absorbs and releases energy. Then, given that the atom releases energy, doesn’t our physical body release and absorb energy in the same way?
So, what is human energy?
The Human Energy Field is the “aura” or the energy that surrounds or overlays our physical selves and interacts with our mind, body and spirit. These include the electromagnetic field measurement generated by living cells, tissues, organs and the body as a whole.
Can we measure the energetic field? Yes, thanks to all the exciting research made around the world. Thankfully and fortunately for us, we have begun to understand the role of energy field and disease. SQUID is a very sensitive magnetometer used to measure the magnetic field and was created in the 1960’s. They have discovered that all cell tissues and organs produce specific magnetic pulsations which have come to be known as biomagnetic field. Early 1930’s researchers at Yale were already suggesting that disease could be detected in the energetic field before physical symptoms appear, unfortunately, keeping in line with the status quo, such statements were completely dismissed by both the medical world and western civilization.
As an Energy Practitioner, I could write for hours about the beauty of energy healing, but I need to summarize. To all that are believers in a Higher power, Universe, God, whatever your belief may be, all this explanation is obvious, but I needed to make sure that this article would also make sense with scientific proof to the ones that have a different point of view. We already know that taking care of our body by watching what we eat and drink is as important as taking care of our mental/emotional being, but what about our energy? Do we really need “energy healing”? Does it really make a difference? Absolutely!
Our emotions and our thoughts are connected to our energetic field. Everything is connected. In 1980, Dr John Zimmerman began a study called “Therapeutic Touch” with a range of healers at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. He discovered that huge magnetic pulsation emanated from the practitioners’ hands. The pulsation coming out swept through the frequencies that scientific studies had indicated necessary to stimulate healing. Later in 1992, similar studies were conducted in Japan as well. As an Energy practitioner, I can only confirm how beneficial connecting Life Force Energy is to achieving complete well-being, to restore balance and unblock the flow of energy in our bodies. The most precious gift that you can give to yourself is the gift of experience, self-care and self-love. Energy Healing helps us restore and unlock any ‘blockage’, allowing ourselves to experience a complete way to become “healthy” in all levels.
What a beautiful gift to give to yourself,don’t you think?
It was a tremendous pleasure to have the opportunity to share with you all.
Love and Light,
