What Is Energy Work?

Many people have asked the same question, “What is energy work?” Well, there are different types of energy work. I will touch on some of the more common types, then I will attempt to explain what exactly I do. It’s my hope that you will have a basic understanding of the types of energy work.

First, let’s take a look at one of the most familiar types, Reiki. Reiki is Japanese for “Universal life energy.” Reiki Masters and practitioners use the principle that they are able to channel energy through touch or by hovering over the patient to activate the bodies natural healing process. Clients of Reiki practitioners have normally searched to find the right practitioner that is compatible with their own belief system. Reki has been shown to have many healing properties, which is why it is so important to find the right person. Each practitioner has their own rhythm and way of channeling the universal energy.

Second, Acupuncture/Acupressure. These are also Eastern based practices. Acupuncture uses very small needles inserted into the body at specific points in the body called the body’s Meridian system. This helps improve the flow of Chi. Chi being the life force of the person. Acupressure uses the same principle, except that needles are not used, instead pressure from the practitioners finger or palm of the had are used.

Third, Intuitive healing. Intuitive healing is somewhat broad in its practices. An intuitive practitioner performs a quick “scan” of the client and allows the body to tell them what they need. This leads the practitioner to various forms of holistic medicine, i.e Reki, oils, herbs, crystals, and the like. This may sound very far fetched, however, many people find relief in this type of treatment.

Next, we will look at Shamanic healing, use energy from the spiritual realm using power animals. This practice has been used by the American Indians for centuries, and has been quite successful.

Spiritual/Energy healing are very similar. Its premise is based on that base knowledge that the body is energy. These practitioners use the clients own energy to facilitate the bodies ability to heal itself. Other similar practices are, shiatsu and cranial-sacral therapy.

Restorative Touch(TM) is a very powerful form of energy work that is based on the model to support the health, healing and spiritual evolution of the client. Practitioners are held to very high standards.

And last but not least, Quantum Touch ® (Kvantum Energy Healing). Practitioners in this field cultivate their own energy to entrain it with the client’s energy. This helps the clients energy to raise to a higher and healthier level.

Now that we’ve covered these more common forms of “energy work,” let’s discuss what exactly I do. I use a combination of all of the above, in a sense. First, being of Native American decent, I burn sage, I pray then connect with your energy (some call it vibration.) When I do this, in my minds eye I can see the entire energy flow of my client. It resembles an electric blue print.

Once there, I can see muscle pain, illnesses, spiritual issues, mental issues, and emotional issues. I then balance the body’s energy and restore healing and flow. Clients tend to be a bit emotional for a few days as issues are brought to the surface. During this time I encourage you to sit with it and process what you are feeling. My clients tend to become warm and or feel tingling in their bodies. Some say that they feel a floating sensation. Clients are usually tired and thirsty after a session, they rest well and wake feeling peaceful and rested. I always recommend drinking plenty of water. It is not uncommon for me to “freak” people out a bit. Headaches have disappeared, pain is gone, and inflammation is gone.
