We may all be connected to our physical body, emotional body and mental body. However, many of us are not aware that we are also made up of an energy body. The energy body, known to many as the aura, encircles the physical body, governs the organs and bodily systems, guides emotions, and nurtures the soul. The energy body has many layers, including the chakras, meridians, aura cords, dantiens, cranio-sacral points, etc.
Many alternative and Eastern traditions of medicine believe that as the physical body weakens, fatigues or experiences dis-ease, it is attributed to an imbalance, stagnation or depletion of life force energy. Energy healing, in its many forms, works to replenish the body’s natural state of wholeness, reinstate balance and support the body’s natural ability to heal itself. Through the power of intention, the practitioner channels pure Universal Life Force energy, or Chi, and transfers the energy to the one receiving the treatment. This energy removes blockages and negative energetic signatures while regenerating new life force. Some Eastern traditions, such as the Taoist system of healing, believe that negative energy can be transformed into positive healing light, and then circulated throughout the body for greater vitality, health and wellbeing.
