Energy healing is a holistic therapy in which a practitioner consciously uses her hands to clear, balance, and charge the human energy field. Illness is caused by imbalance, which shows up in the field. The healer works directly with the aura and chakras to remove disruptions in the field, thereby promoting energetic flow. This energetic flow is the basis of the body"s natural ability to heal itself. Energy healing can not only resolve physical illness, but it also touches a person on an emotional, mental, and spiritual level. Many people feel supported and nurtured by a healing. They often develop insight into specific areas of their lives, or have what they consider a spiritual experience. Because everything is made of energy, and the healer works directly with this energetic level of life, profound changes can occur.
