What is Energy Healing? When you hear moms saying, “We’re doing a lot of energy work right now,” do you know what they’re talking about? Are you curious?
What is Energy Healing?
Energetic Healing is an umbrella name for any therapy that works on the principle of moving the energy circuits in our physical or subtle bodies to facilitate our innate healing ability.
There are many forms of energetic healing. Some you may have heard of: Reiki, reflexology, kinesiology, acupuncture, chakra balancing, flower essences and crystal healing.
Energetic healing looks beyond physical symptoms to manipulate the subtle energetic meridians in the body to clear blocks, repair and rebalance. Trauma, stress, environmental damage and disease are stored in the energy fields of our bodies. Disease is the body’s way of communicating that there is an energetic block, our body’s energy is unable to move harmoniously. Energetic healing facilitates repairing the body to its optimal level of balance so that it can heal itself.
According to quantum physics, we are all made of energy as is everything in our world. Even our thoughts and feelings are energy, but, like oxygen, you can’t see it. In an optimal state of health our personal energy is delicately balanced. Our energetic balance can get thrown off by internal and external factors like anxiety, limiting beliefs, neurological or biological imbalances, toxins, and poor nutrition among many other things.
How Do We Work with an Energy Provider?
Many energetic providers work with clients in a clinic or office. If the child is unable to lie on the table the child can lie with a parent or play in the therapy room, and the provider may use the parent as a surrogate. Sessions are, on average, one hour in length and occur as frequently as you and the therapist feel makes the most sense.
A lot of energetic healing is done remotely. Providers are able to work on your child from anywhere in the world, tuning into your child’s energetic frequency while they are at school, at play or even asleep. The advantages to this are extraordinary; you can work with a provider who would otherwise be unavailable to you because of location, and you skip the stress completely of having to schlep your child into yet another appointment.
What Will My Child Experience during the Session?
Many children may feel absolutely nothing at all while they are receiving energy work. They may feel a warmth or coolness, some may drift off to sleep, and some may have an emotional release with giggles or tears. Some children will experience immediate improvement in a physical symptom or mood. Others may process the session over several days, and improvement will come more slowly.
What About for Mom?
Not only is this kind of therapy so helpful for parents who struggle with our own physical ailments, toxicity and emotional pain and stress, but when parents are in balance children will often start to show improvement.
Could Energy Healing Help My Child?
Many children benefit from energetic healing. Issues such as sleep, anxiety, and digestive pain are greatly aided by this modality. Energetic healing may augment other treatment modalities beautifully. However, energetic healers may also be able to go much deeper to the roots of imbalances in children with diagnoses such as autism and ADHD to help bring about much more fundamental change.
Energetic healing has been extraordinarily helpful for my son Nick who has a sluggish detox system and carries a heavy toxic load. As we work to lighten that load of environmental damage, his detox pathways get easily jammed and overwhelmed. With the help of remote energetic work, we have been able to help Nick’s system undo these blocks and actually release the toxins we are aiming to get rid of, and the gains for Nick have been tremendous.
I asked several other mothers to tell me about their experiences of energy work with their kids and on themselves. Here are a few comments they shared with me:
“One day my son was crying for an hour and looked completely terrified, yet nothing seemed to have happened? Our provider was able to tap into my son, tell me what was causing him distress and clear the energy. He calmed and the struggle was over.” –- Mom of six-year old, pre-verbal child with apraxia using a remote session during a meltdown.
“My daughter’s language bumped forward after our session. The week after our appointment she went to bed an hour earlier every night and slept through to the morning.” — Mom to seven-year-old daughter with autism after one remote session.
“After my session I lay on my kitchen floor in the dark and had an amazing cry, and then 95% of my grief-related to autism was gone after that.” — Mom of two daughters, whose five-year-old has autism, talking about her own remote session.
“After she worked on my son, she told me he had a lot of anger, and especially hates the word ‘disabled’. She worked on the anger with him and we deleted the word ‘disabled’ from our vocabulary. He hasn’t had anger issues since.” — Mom of two young boys, one with autism and mobility issues.
“She gave me some great insight into my son who was freaking out every night about homework that he was fully capable of doing. His teacher was practically in tears telling me at the parent/teacher conference that she didn’t know what to do, and at this rate he wasn’t going to pass second grade. Through the energy provider’s help, we were able to resolve the situation, and at the last parent/teacher conference it was a whole different story. His teacher was delighted to report he was on target for everything.” –- Mom of two kids, her younger son recovered from apraxia.
