What is Holistic Energy Healing?

Standard definitions of healing have to do with restoring health, physical healing, treatments to treat a condition or disease, and so on.

In contrast, energy healers see a more expansive point of view.

Healing rebalances a person physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually and energetically.

In fact, many naturopaths hold on to the idea that clients (patients) heal themselves and that ultimately all healing is self-healing.

In addition, holistic practitioners help their clients address mental, emotional, spiritual and energetic issues. It’s all healing.

The term “holistic” can be understood in two ways.

First, a holistic modality treats the whole person versus conventional medicine which targets a specific disease or part of the body.

Second, “holistic” implies an essential element of synergy between one or more modalities.

In other words, a holistic modality complements and can even enhance other forms of healing, including but not limited to conventional medicine.

Most forms of energy healing do both.

Holistic energy healing modalities.

In short, holistic energy healing can refer to a wide range of mind, body and spirit healing practices that focus on the body’s life force and subtle energy systems.

This includes chakras, meridians, and your aura – and how they relate to the human body, health, wellbeing, and spirituality.

Common forms of holistic energy healing are acupuncture, Qi Gong and Reiki.
