For anyone that knows us well, Louise Hay’s book ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ was a major game changer. Understanding that everything we do, feel, see and experience is the result of an energy exchange can really open your eyes when it comes to healing.
If stuck, unresolved and unreleased energy in the body can be the root cause of so many physical, emotional and spiritual woes, then surely addressing them via different modalities of energy is one of the most powerful solutions.
We hear you— this marks a huge departure from everything Western medicine had taught us. While it wouldn’t be quite right to fully rule it out as the solution to many illnesses, there is certainly a huge place for energy healing when it comes to helping our bodies get back into balance.
If you’re keen to explore the magic of energy healing but don’t know where to begin, we’ve rounded up a few of our favourites modalities to help you on your healing journey. As always, make sure you find someone who is expertly qualified— you deserve the BEST, and when you find a practitioner you truly connect with, everything can change. And remember, patience and consistency is key— while it’s possible for a single treatment to create energetic shifts, it’s rare that this alone can alleviate everything. So if it feels right, keep going and trust the process.
Hailing from Japan in the 1800’s, reiki is known as a cornerstone of energy healing. By invoking energetic symbols, universal energy is channeled by way of gentle touch to activate the natural healing processes of the body, and bring back a sense of physical and emotional well-being. As you lie on the massage table, the practitioner will address areas of your body that are blocked by gently placing their hands on or above it, calling for more light. Emotions experienced post treatment include a feeling of calm, balance and love.
Acupuncture is an ancient healing practice that has been around the block for a few centuries, especially in the East. The practice involves thin, sterile needles which are inserted into pressure points in the body, helping to release stagnant energy/Qi. The acupuncture points are found along the meridian lines in the body, helping to relieve pain and balance the body’s yin and yang energy. Treatment can work a dream on many conditions from back pain and headaches to infertility and digestive issues.
3. CRYSTAL HEALING
Sceptical or not, crystals are without a doubt one of the most highest frequency beings on the planet. They spend a millennial growing in the darkest, muddiest of caves, and come to thrive as luminescent beauties in a multitude of shapes and colours— what a metaphor for life! By laying crystal grids on particular energetic points on your body., their high frequencies can help to balance emotional issues, physical pain and chakras. They can also be used to help you connect to your spirit guides. Don’t be shocked if you feel a soft pulsing sensation and receive intuitive messages during your treatment!
Did you know that our feet and hands are home to neural pathways to every system in the body? By touching touch certain reflex points on your feet, you can stimulate your digestive system, balance hormones and even calm headaches. A session at the end of the day can help you relax in the most deep way, leaving you feeling as light as a feather. You can even do it on yourself using a book and map of the reflex points in your feet/hands!
