BENEFIT OF ENERGY HEALING
The benefits of energy healing are really beyond what words can describe or what our minds can comprehend. Energy healing is absolutely the most natural healing available. Energy is given to each and every one of us equally no matter what our financial status is, our gender, our nationality or locality. Sunlight shines for each and every one of us, the wind blows no matter what, and vibra- tions are regularly occurring everywhere. Emotions are experienced by everyone and each of us has our individual choice of what the emotions are, thereby determining our own outcome.
To benefit from energy healing we need only learn and apply the knowledge. It is technically a do it yourself process.
As we advance into the deeper layers of energy and its healing properties we discover the power generated by united and combined energy with others to increase the impact. These processes are taking place whether we are aware of them or not. How nice to learn how to harness and consciously choose as individuals and as societies to heal not only ourselves but the world as a whole. Energy creates power or as it is referred to in healing…Empowerment. Health enhancement through energy healing is life empowerment on every level of our life experience. When we are relaxed and stress-free, we are able to restore our natural ability to heal. When a person is in good health, regular energy healing therapy will increase the bodies built-in defenses. This will manifest itself as confidence and outward harmony in dealing with everyday events. The person will gain a positive outlook on life. Energy healing will also provide the additional energy required to recover from illness. An energy healing session can induce an extremely comfortable state of being that can bring alteration in the clients consciousness.
Energy Healing can be used also as complementary therapy, because it is truly a complementary care. It complements and enhances the health care the patient receives in the hospital or from oth- er health care providers. Energy healing complements Eastern and Western medicine and every- body can benefit from it. It is beneficial to the health of woman (even pregnant), men, children and it is also excellent to be used on animals (dogs, cats, horses), plants, water, etc.
Energy healing energy is a tool to be used at any moment, any time, anywhere for on-the-spot stress release, pain relief and quick energy.
Most types of spiritual healing involve energy, both inside and outside of the body. The pur- pose of most techniques is to cleanse and clear the body’s life force of negative obstruc- tions, so that the mind, body and soul can harmonize. A lot of spiritual health practitioners see this as the only true path to whole health.
One of the benefits of spiritual healing is to enable total healing and not just curing symp- toms.
If mind, body and spirit can be made to work properly together, the illness can start to heal. It is usually believed by spiritual healing enthusiasts that any disorder, be it bodily, psycho- logical or emotional, begins in the mind, at least in a few part.
Various contemporary healthcare practitioners are starting to appreciate the benefits of mixing a spiritual aspect into a patient’s care, and in fact some HMOs and medical facilities are proposing these services. The medical evidence does propose that spiritual healing,
in complement with traditional medical care, can increase positive outcomes for patients with a range of conditions. Specific studies suggest benefits in cancer patients, new moms, people suffering from depressive disorders, and cardiac patients, among others. Apparently, “healing” is a general term. Therefore let’s look more intimately at some of the benefits of spiritual healing that have been authenticated as a result of a few of the varianc- es on the subject.
With Reiki, a long-familiar and much practiced method developed in the early 20th Century, channels energy through the hands of a practitioner through the body of the patient. Fa- vorable results have been registered in the form of reduced heart rate and reduced blood pressure. Relief from depression and anxiety has also been attributed to Reiki therapy. Polarity Therapy has been around since the mid-20th Century. It offers treatment using the body’s energy as well as a combination of diet, exercise, self-awareness and other factors. The body’s ailments are diagnosed through verbal means as well as touch. This therapy is thought to aid stress reduction, relief of migraine headaches, allergies, digestive disorders, PMS symptoms, body pain and fatigue. It has also reportedly helped with pregnancy and post-natal care.
Qi Gong, at times spelled Chi Kung, a Chinese method of healing that has been around for 2,000 years, is a mix of exercise and the cultivation of qi energies. The discipling of the body plays a key role, and there are exercises to help regulate the body (posture), mind (through relaxation) and the breath. There are moving and still variations. Apart from curing illness, its benefits are accepted to include a stronger body including the diaphragm and cardiovascular system, a more effective central nervous system and cerebral cortex, better synchronization of the brain waves, expanded lung capacity and a more effective immune system.
Then, there’s good old-fashioned prayer. Prayer can be done in a group or by oneself. It can be practiced even when the person being prayed for has no knowledge of such. Nu- merous studies have been done to verify the effectiveness of prayer. It can help with the health and well-being of the person being prayed for – but it also brings a sense of peace to the person praying.

Research into energy healing
In an effort to incorporate Western sciences’ need for physical proof, studies have been performed on the impact of energy healing on living, isolated cells as opposed to human subjects. Many of the studies on isolated cells are inadequately controlled, are published as incomplete reports, or are published in non-reviewed journals. Thus, while existing evidence provides enough positive indications to warrant further investigation, there is a great need for more rigorous studies from experienced investigators.
Of 23 clinical trials involving energy healing that did meet a rigorous criteria requiring adequate design, control and review procedures, 57 percent have shown a beneficial effect. This caused authors reviewing the studies to conclude that the “evidence thus far merits further study.”
Indeed there is growing interest and evidence for alternative health exploration based on a “life force,” wholeness, and interconnections. The National Institutes of Health has established a Cen– ter that is devoted to research in the area of Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The budget is growing rapidly and research into areas such as energy healing and prayer is being encouraged. Several large clinical trials, especially on the effects of prayer, are now underway in major academ– ic institutions across the country. Through science, researchers eventually hope to better under– stand how energy healing practices may be incorporated into Western medical practices.
