I used to be such a skeptic of this “energy healing” stuff. I initially dismissed it as quack medicine and crazy new age “science”. But, I was curious, so I began researching these modalities about 5 years ago. The first thing I learned was that this wan’t new age at all– these practices have been around forever.
I became certified in healing touch and studied under a Reiki master to really get the inside dirt. Over and over again, my mechanistic philosophies were challenged by “unexplainable” experiences and healings that I witnessed. I still don’t know if it’s just the placebo effect at work or the actual manipulation of the energy field. Maybe both. Maybe something totally different. Whatever the case, research has found many benefits from these practices and no real side effects.
After a lot of skepticism and reluctancy, I’m now a believer. If you’ve had any experiences with energy healing practices, please share them below– the good and bad.
