For a long time , the workings of everything have been viewed from the physical explainable perspective where one thing affects the other through known physical forces and within space and time limitations.For a long time , the workings of everything have been viewed from the physical explainable perspective where one thing affects the other through known physical forces and within space and time limitations. This view is also present in health-care where treatment of diseases is only on the symptoms as opposed to the causes. Energy healing techniques acknowledges that illnesses , diseases and conditions have a deeper cause which over time has been identified as energy flow that is present in the body. Energy medicine addresses this energy , which is called qi by the Chinese and prana in India , in its attempt to help the body heal.The thought here is that the body has energies that flow within it and that help the body in its functioning and that it is the disruption of the flow of these energies that result in illnesses , diseases and conditions. Healing with energy , in the many energy healing techniques , restores this balance and consequently healing the body. This imbalance and disruption of the body energy flow is caused by emotional traumas , psychological stress , and environmental factors like pollution , processed foods , artificial electromagnetic energy , negative thoughts , beliefs and inner conflicts and also through contact with negative energy that may be from other people.The superiority of energy medicine over conventional medicine is in its wholesome healing as energy medicine , using the many proven energy healing techniques , not only heal the physical manifestations of the illnesses , they also heal the emotional and the spiritual manifestations as well. This is achieved by the fact that energy therapy releases dormant energies in the body allowing them to flow again , revitalizing the weak energies and helping to distribute the energies that were in excess in the body or even one area of the body.There are many energy healing techniques among them being Reiki , Qigong , acupuncture , acupressure , reflexology , homeopathy , color and sound therapy. These techniques , beyond being categorically diverse , also have variations in disciplines within themselves and may differ is how they are practiced even within themselves. However diverse the differences , all these energy medicine approaches work with the principle that it is the imbalance , disruptions and blockages to the vibration patterns and energy flows within the body systems that cause illnesses , diseases and conditions and that restoration of the energy balance is the healing process.In choosing which energy therapy to use , it should be noted that all the techniques are essentially the same and that even in some instance; some healing with energy techniques may be used together for a comprehensive working of the energy medicine. This , consequently , means the choice of which of the energy healing techniques you will choose to use is dependent on which works and is best suited for you.Before settling on one technique of energy medicine , you may have to try out several energy healing techniques and as such it is advisable that you start with the simple energy medicine approaches or techniques that you can do on your own before moving on to the more complex and specialized energy healing techniques in case the simple ones do not work satisfactorily for you.
