How Does Energy Healing Work?

by Lisa Woykin

A few years ago I was recognizing certain pains and ailments that seemed to come and go. I was attending university classes and when I was stressed I would experience problems such as stomach aches, acid reflux, headaches, and neck pain. I sought out various treatments (both medical and holistic) to help alleviate the symptoms. When attending a free lecture on The Yuen Method with Sharon Thom, a Yuen Method practitioner and instructor I offered to participate in one of her demonstrations. Through muscle testing and intuitive insight Sharon was able to clear my headache and anxiety in minutes. It was as if buttons were pushed on and off (strengthening and deleting items from my energy) and changes occurred instantly in my body. From there I was hooked and took the training to become a practitioner myself.

There are many forms of energy healing that help people heal physically, mentally, emotionally, psychologically, and spiritually. Examples of healing practices include: Reiki, The Yuen Method, Emotional Freedom Technique, Body Talk, Healing Touch, Polarity Therapy, Pranic Healing, Restorative Touch, Shamanic Healing, Thetahealing and more. Satish Dholakia, founder of Inner Cosmos, and practitioner of Kriya Shakti believes that individuals have their own type of vibration and describes how one can heal from a distance. He says subjects are identified by their unique signature frequency and the intention or focused consciousness is transmitted through the universal energy field and is received by the subject. We are all connected energetically and can automatically tune into someone’s energy through identification and intention. For example how easily it is to dial a friend’s phone number and within seconds hear his or her voice and make a connection. There is a variety of levels of communication that occurs between the practitioner and the client.

Science has yet to quantitatively prove how energy healing works however, leaders in the field are making improvements in their explanations. In an article titled, “How Energy Works in the Body,” Rev. Guy N. Larsson states that the function of energy is described as atoms that are made up of neutrons and protons that are surrounded by electrons and it is the speed, direction, and spin shape of the electrons that determine how the atoms functions to make the cell work. “What affects the electrons?” This is where science has a difficult time providing curious minds with the answers and proof to this question. It is similar to the question “What is a ‘thought’?” It is again a difficult concept to dissect and explain. I would say one has to be in touch with their extrasensory perceptions or intuition to see the proof for themselves or one has to work with an intuitive person or healer to experience the changes in their mind and body or experience the benefits of intuitive advice. Larsson answers with, “According to minds including Albert Einstein, Gregg Braden, Bruce Lipton, and other researchers, it is perception or thoughts and beliefs that direct electrons’ rotation and speed.” The saying, “when it rains it pours,” is a prime example because when things seem to go wrong it brings a person’s mood down and then more negative events seem to occur. Our worries, fears, anger and beliefs not only impact the choices we make in our lives but can take a toll on our physical bodies.

There is energy all around us and it seems as though our earth, our universe is one giant Internet. Therefore our thoughts and actions can have an impact on our moods, our body and on other people. Therefore in choosing any form of energy work where through intention, asking, touch, through love and intuitive awareness one is able to connect with universal energies and heal another individual. Science is able to explain electromagnetic energy, biochemical reactions but is unable to explain or prove how those energies and reactions are impacted by intangible things such as thoughts, intentions perceptions and beliefs.
