Various modalities of energy healing techniques include Tai Chi, Reiki, Reflexology, Homeopathy, Flower Essences, and Acupuncture. Some tools used by energy healers include crystals, herbs, healing stones and hands-on healing.
Another approach is distance healing. The basic premise of this type of energy healing states that time and space are illusionary, therefore, the energy healer need not be present to affect change in the person seeking the healing. All that is required is intense focus/visualization on behalf of the healer and an openness to the healing energy by the recipient.
Regardless of the approach, or modality, the objective of energy healing is to align the body’s chakra system — which consists of eight chakras, or energy centers, that stretch from the area of the base of the spine up to the crown of the head.
Energy Healer Training
The number of energy healing schools available are as varied as their specialties. From online courses to weekend retreats and formal institutions, it is important to do research when looking for the program that is best for you.
Becoming an energy healer can take as little as a few weeks to as much as several months or years depending on the type of training you are seeking. For instance, if you’re looking to become a Reiki master, anticipate committing to a year of consistent study at minimum.
