What is Energy Healing?

Energy healing is a complementary approach to traditional medicine that is based on the belief that our bodies have energy flowing through them, and that healing can come from helping us to balance our flow of energy. It's rooted in ancient forms of practice where a practitioner channels healing energy to support the recipient's body, mind and spirit. This is meant to restore energy balance and harmony and improve health and wellness. 

There are various types of energy healing, such as Reiki, Therapeutic Touch and Emotional Freedom Technique. Some scientific evidence suggests a change in the body after a Reiki session as well as benefits like reduced pain and improved mood.  A Reiki self-care program can bring harmony to mind, body and spirit. Reiki is offered in hospitals around the world and has shown to be effective pre and post-surgery. 

Energy healing is considered safe. Our Reiki Master at Let it go with Reiki has been working in hospitals and hospices since the eighties. Nurses, doctors and staff have appreciated having a simple, accessible, effective practice for self-care and patient care. And, the caregiver. 

Many hospitals in Ontario, including Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, Oakville Trafalgar Memorial, Trillium Health Partners in Toronto, have Reiki teams to support surgical and cancer patients.
