Heal your physical and emotional pain by tapping into these universal energy healing techniques.

The world is not simply made of the stuff that we can see with our eyes, hear with our ears or taste with our tongues. Over the course of time, several scientific fields of study have been developed and researchers have been able to prove what previously was thought as impossible. Think of electrical energies, nuclear energy, gravitational energy and sound energy. Scientists tackle astrophysics, quantum physics, atomic physics essentially unlocking the mysteries of the earth and the human species. On the other hand, very little research has been done when it comes to the spiritual world. No such thing as “spiritual physics”.

Some might laugh at the thought of the existence of a universal energy, that could be tapped into with the mind and body, but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist.

Remember that history is not very kind to ideas that are outside of the box. Nobody believed Nicholas Copernicus when he began the scientific revolution that the earth and other planets revolve around the sun and yet, here we are.

I find it interesting that whether you find yourself in Japan, China, Mexico, or Egypt, ancient healing techniques often shared common ground.

Universal Energy

The spiritual belief that Illnesses are disturbances of energy flow in the body and that to heal, a person’s energy flow must be restored.

All around the world, different types of energy and spiritual healing techniques are practiced. Maybe there is a little bit of truth in some of them. Maybe they deserve to be examined more closely. Maybe scientists ought to take a closer look?

Energy healing, vibrational medicine, psychic healing, spiritual medicine are all classified as Alternative medicine.

Reiki Healing

Reiki is a form of alternative medicine that originated in japan in 1922 by Mikao Usui. Reiki practitioners use a technique called hands-on, or palm healing. They allegedly channel universal energy into their palms and transfer it into various points on the body, to encourage emotional and physical healing.

The word Reiki is made from two Japanese words called “Rei” meaning God’s wisdom and “Ki” meaning energy.

Therapeutic touch

Therapeutic Touch is similar to Reiki Healing, with the key differences being the philosophy and the training behind the procedure. It was adapted and brought into hospitals in 1970 by Dolores Krieger, Ph.D., RN, a professor of nursing. Therapeutic touch is said to be a modern version of ancient healing practices.

The singing bowls

The singing bowl is an ancient Tibetan meditation tool often used by Buddhist practitioners. They are believed to have originated 18 000 years ago in the Himalayas.

These singing bowls are used for healing purposes by using different frequencies that resonate within a person’s brainwaves.

Just as with other energy healing practices in different parts of the world, it is centered on the idea that diseases are interference of energy flow in the body. The sound frequencies are said to optimize the flow of energy throughout the body.


With roots in traditional Chinese Medicine as well as Martial Arts dating back 4000 years, qigong is a practice that brings balance to the life energy. Referred to as chi (Qi) Qigong is practiced by doing coordinated movements of the body along with breathing, and meditation to stimulate health and spirituality.

Crystal Healing

Ancient Sumerians used crystals and gemstones in the 4th millennium BC. They were also used in traditional Chinese medicine beginning around 3000 BC.

Ancient Egyptians adorned ritual and burial items with stones aimed at bringing protection and health. Stones and semi-precious crystals have been used for centuries around the world.

In today’s modern healing technique, practitioners use precisely placed specific crystals either on or around the physical body. Different stones and crystals have different healing properties and are chosen according to the specific problem that needs to be addressed. Allegedly crystals can repel negative energy from the body, which disturbs the being mentally and physically.

Pranic Healing

People who practice pranic healing believe that prana or life energy can help accelerate the healing process in the body. Everyone can heal themselves with pranic healing if they learn and practice it.

Pranic healing originated in India centuries ago, and then it flourished in neighboring countries such as China, Tibet, and Thailand. The word pranic originates from the Sanskrit word “prana” meaning vital life force.

Healing energy is used to clean the toxins from the body, thus accelerating the healing physical process.


Ayurvedic knowledge originated in India more than 5,000 years ago.

Ayurveda teaches how to create this balance of body, mind, and consciousness according to one’s own needs. Based on his knowledge a person can make lifestyle changes to bring about and maintain balance.

Ayurvedic has been integrated into general wellness practices and some cases in medical use.


Acupuncture is a key component of traditional Chinese medicine and involves fine needles being inserted into the skin at various defined points around the body. The practice originated in China and is a form of alternative healing that is now used around the world. Acupuncture is said to help cure diseases that have caused disruptions to the flow of energy in the body. Acupuncture stimulates points under the skin releasing the flow of energy.


Hypnosis began in the 18th century with Franz Mesmer, a German physician. He used hypnosisin the treatment of patients in Vienna and Paris. It is said to be a very successful technique to heal the mind. The patient enters a hypnotic state and becomes susceptible to the power of suggestion. The hypnotist will direct the subconscious mind to focus the body energy on a specific system in the body.

It is often used to change negative habits, reduce pain, and eliminate fears.
