What is Energy Therapy?

By Kris Rued-Clark

As Energy Therapists, we practice a combination of Healing Touch and Traditional Usui Reiki. The first thing you need to know is that we do not heal you. Rather, we work with your body’s energetic system to bring it into balance so that you can heal. When you cut your finger, you don’t have to tell it how to heal. Your body already knows how to heal. But when things become out of balance, that natural healing process can come out of alignment.

We work with your body’s energetic system of chakras and energy meridians (tracks) to remove any blockages and balance the energy so it can flow naturally. This helps your body reset to its own ability to heal.

A Reiki practitioner will often say that it doesn’t matter where they put their hands, because the energy will flow where it’s needed. To a certain extent, that is true. However, if you have a river flowing over a rock, it’s going to take a long, long time for the water to wear down the rock. The same holds true for energy blockages. With the techniques of Healing Touch, we can detect those energetic blockages and remove them, allowing the energy to flow unimpeded.

With Healing Touch, we also detect energy leakages in your energy fields and seal them. Think of a flat tire. You can pump air into it, but if you don’t find the hole and patch it, the air will just leak out and the tire will go flat. The same is true for your energy fields that surround and protect you like a shield.

Everyday stresses can result in small tears or leaks in your energy fields. With the Healing Touch technique, we detect those leaks and seal them before the treatment, so that the energy you receive will be held.

During a treatment, you will lie fully clothed on a massage table. We will do an assessment of your chakras and energy fields, then do a full body treatment, removing energy blockages and re-energizing the chakras. During the treatment, you will experience total relaxation. It is like having an inner body massage. Mind Clearing techniques will bring you more peace and clarity. Your treatment will include additional techniques such as the Lymphatic Cleansing & Opening and the Immune System Strengthen & Connect.

Like peeling layers of an onion, with each treatment, we can go deeper and deeper to achieve healing of body, mind, emotions, and spirit. After a treatment, most people report feeling more relaxed and better able to sleep well, with less stress. Some people feel more energized. Energy Therapy enhances all other health care modalities and promotes whole health.

As Tarri notes, “When I first learned Energy Therapy, I wanted to go around helping everybody. But I realized that not everyone is meant to heal.” This is an important lesson for a practitioner of any of the healing arts. It is not up to us to determine the results of a treatment. Yes, we’ve seen what some would call miraculous results, and we’ve also seen people who do not heal.

As Energy Therapists, we are process-oriented rather than results-oriented. We do our best to bring your body’s energy system into balance so that you can achieve healing of body, mind, and emotions, yet we do not create the outcome. We facilitate, but we do not heal. Although many people achieve dramatic healing, we do not control how you receive the energetic treatment.

How Does Energy Therapy Work?

How does Energy Therapy work? A trained Energy Therapist will assess your energy system, seal leaks, remove blockages, and make sure the energy flows freely through your body. Think of your energetic system as an application or a software program that interfaces with your hardware (your physical body). Think of meridians as the wires that connect the parts. Your energy fields act as a protective shield that surrounds your body in layers.

The hands of the Energy Therapist can “feed” energy to your energy centers (your chakras, meridians, and energy fields). Everything is energy. It is quantum physics. We are quantum energy, as is the Source energy we transmit to you for healing and well-being.

Feel free to contact us for more information or to arrange a treatment. An Energy Therapy treatment can be either in person or a through distant healing, which can be done anywhere in the world.

What Is a Distant Healing?

Most people prefer the hands-on, comforting touch of an in-person Energy Therapy treatment. However, sometimes it isn’t practical. Perhaps the client is in the hospital, or otherwise incapable of coming in, or lives in a different state or even country. Some clients, due to constant pain, cannot tolerate lying on a treatment table for an entire session. Or they just feel too yucky to come in. In these circumstances a distant healing is the way to go.

What happens in a distant healing? You will lie in your own bed or even relaxing in a recliner, preferably in a quiet, receptive state. Through an inspired technique, we call your energy fields to the treatment table and work on them as if you are here, sealing leaks, removing blockages, and refilling your body with energy.

Remember, since everything is energy, your body responds energetically to the treatment. You and the practitioner are connected through quantum entanglement, or what Albert Einstein called “spooky action at a distance.” The hands of the Energy Therapist can feel your body’s energy centers and “feed” energy to your chakras, connect your meridians, and clear your energy fields just as if you are in the room with the therapist.

No matter where you are in the world, you can receive a distant healing. A distant healing can also help prepare your body for surgery and help you heal more quickly afterward. Another benefit of the distant healing is that it allows the practitioner to go deeper more quickly and clear blockages in specific organs or joints. All we have to do is arrange a time when you can be lying down to receive the treatment.
