Updated on November 24, 2014

Top 10 Best Energy Healing Therapies

Energy Healing is a term used for holistic healing therapies, which mainly focuses on manipulating "life forces" to help getting the balance and wellness in mind, body and soul.

The healings include certain area treatments, such as a person’s aura, chakras, human energy fields, and the meridian system. Some of the energy-based techniques involve practitioners using hands-on methodologies. Other therapies involve non-touch or absentia treatments.Nowadays, there are various energy healing schools available that can give professional training on different types of energy healing courses. You can also learn energy healing from various energy healing books now available in the market.

Following are some of the most efficient alternative energy healing therapies available:

Energy Healing techniques that require hands on

1) Reiki (pronounced as Ray-Key) is a union of two Japanese words “rei” and “ki” , which means the universal life energy. Reiki is an ancient healing system, which uses the hands-on laying technique through which the life force energies are healed, and subtle energies within our bodies are balanced. Reiki helps in healing the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances. Distant reiki healing can also be practiced at higher levels of reiki training procedure. There are five levels of Reiki training course, after which a person can attain professional reiki certification.

2) Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one of the ancient and most widely used holistic medical technique in the world. Acupuncture points are believed to be points that allow entry of energy into channels. This is to redirect, increase or decrease the body's vital substance, Qi (pronounced as Chi) and restore balance on an emotional, physical and spiritual level. The word 'acupuncture' represents a matrix of procedures and techniques, which involve the stimulation of anatomical points on the body.

3) Ama-Deus

Ama-Deus is a hands-on method and works with the absentia energy healing process, to promote spiritual growth and awareness. It can also work well in supporting our physical and emotional bodies. This healing technique is taught in two levels. A ceremonial invocation is taught to the students, which helps them in connecting to the flow of Ama Deus energy.

Energy Healing techniques that can be done from a Distance

4) Meridian Tapping Techniques

Meridian Tapping Techniques is basically used in repairing the blockages or disturbances in the body's energy system created by the negative emotions. In this treatment, a person opts for a particular emotion such as feeling of anger, embarrassment, frustration, insult, or belittlement to concentrate on, before going for the tapping session. During the tapping session, the person is asked to focus on the emotion to be reduced or cleared while also making positive statements to offset the negative emotions. One of the famous meridian tapping technique is the EFT (Emotional freedom technique)

5) Pranic Healing

Pranic Healing is a distant energy healing technique, which accelerates the healing procedure through the use of “life-force”. This life force gets directed to the part of the physical body that requires healing. In order to locate these chi blockages, the Pranic practitioner scans the patient’s aura or “energy field.” Chi energies are then directed through the Pranic practitioner’s palm chakras to do the cleansing, energizing, and revitalizing of the affected area.

6) Matrix Energetics

This quantum energy healing practice is designed and based on the science behind the quantum physics. Matrix Energetics is a basically a transformational healing method, which merges the healing principles of touch and intent. The Matrix Energetics practitioner's has to focus his intent to make effective changes that can bring healing to the intended recipient. The practitioner's touch is used to know and acknowledge the areas on the body that require healing.

7) Kolaimni

Kolaimni is a distant or non-touch form of energy healing. A professional Kolaimnist will work with her hands within the body's electromagnetic sheath (human energy field), approximately over one half to one inch of the physical body. Short manipulative strokes impart restorative energies into the recipient’s affected area. Kolaimni's technique has been called upon as an "etheric massage."

8) BodyTalk Therapy

BodyTalk is a complementary therapy, which is designed on the theory that the body has an ability to heal itself. BodyTalk communications are made on the neuromuscular biofeedback. This is also like the tapping or muscle-testing used in kinesiology. A Body Talk practitioner identifies "energy circuits" which are stressed, weakened or broken within the body through these communications, and then chanelizes the energy to heal the affected areas.

9) Tong Ren Therapy

This is another form of remote healing technique. Tong Ren healing methods are applied to an acupuncture doll as a focusing tool using the collective unconscious. The Tong Ren practitioner will focus his intention on the physical locations on the doll that will correspond with the similar locations on the recipient's body that requires treatment.

10) Chios Energy Healing

Chios (pronounced as Chee’-ohss) Energy Healing is a kind of holistic therapy, which was formulated by Steve Barrett. Chios healing process includes chakra system rebalancing, chakra charging, chakra cleansing, radiatory healing and seventh-layer healing.

      Very interesting. I'm always amazed at how many techniques there are and how they can all be effective. I'm a big fan of meridian tapping techniques and hands on energy healing.

      Very informative hub! some of these techniques I haven't heard of, but thanks to you I'll do some reading on them. I practice reiki and I was taught to do sweeping,and scanning, and I agree that some teachers give all the levels in the course of two days. I'm very fortunate that my teacher made us wait for a long time between levels, because reiki is about learning to identify the sensations and practice is the best teacher. As part of my evolution, I read everything I can about meridians, other energy healing practices such as, quantum touch and TYLEM Energy Medicine and I combine the techniques that I sense will work for my patient at the time; letting myself be guided intuitively. Everything that I can learn I will!

      Zero Point energy is the amized infusion technology that the Wellness Industry I am working with use and it is almost instant relief for aches and pain. Have a look at my website and play the videos one on zero point energy and the others on demonstrations on how these products work. For once in my life I have now found wealth through health. Do visit my site for more wonderful information about healing. Ana

      Meridian Tapping sounds is interesting for me! Honestly it sounds so new for me. My mom's friends usually talk about Reiki and alternative health medicine. They said these are useful for freeing stress. I hope I have a chance to try Meridian tapping soon.

      The extent to which any valid hands on healing modality is successful is directly related to the skill of the facilitator; being able to run their own energy systems and maintain their personal boundaries. These therapies are only as good as the therapist. If the therapist is proficient they can practice any of the above techniques in person or remotely.

      Wisewolf, you are certainly entitled to your opinions and you express them decisively. However, your descriptions of the differences between pranic healing and reiki do not seem at all accurate to me. Most people trust energy workers better who simply talk about what their practices do - rather than how they are superior to other practices.

      The science of energy healing is definitely very appealing as it gets to the root of our health problems. There is increasing interest to study the relationship of energy and health like how Pappas et al demonstrated low energy causes illness like cancer.

      I have worked both with Pranic healing practices and am a Reiki Master Teacher in different spectrums of the Reiki lineage/energies. I will admit that I had more luck in the beginning during a severe healing crisis with Pranic but I found that the Reiki work was far more influential in my overall healing process.

      One of the great benefits of that time was my own awakening to a process that colleagues have come to help me name Shekinah Rapha Alignment™. Utilizing the higher vibrational frequencies in the Hebrew Alphabet (for those who are not drawn to the Japanese influence in traditional Reiki) and applications of Kabbalistic teachings, the process allows one through Pranic-breathing type work, visualization, and awareness activation actually tap into the etheric blueprint which Spirit uses to construct the physical vessel and its experiences. You can think of it as using the Hebrew Letters to encode higher frequency energy changes in the subtle bodies so that they manifest an integrated ideal health pattern for your overall wellbeing. We have had success with fibromyalgia, encephalitis, and chronic fatigue syndrom when other holistic practices did not elleviate or suppress symptoms. There has also been success with mental blockage and trauma energy facilitation by helping tap into the self-healing potential of recipients. There is also less of a healing crisis involved because you learn to work with the Letters to rewrite yourself and set in protection from any energy issues. Not attempting to necessarily self-promote but we have developed a small local following in a growing metaphysical community in my area and I have begun teaching classes and offering certifications in the technique online.

      I agree somewhat with the comments above, I use a combination of alternative therapies, and have used some reiki symbols, yet I do find that these also invoke an ancestoral link to some aspects of japanese culture that is not what I wish to materialize.

      Other than that, a wonderful and magical list of healing techniques and practices - thankyou.

      Thank you Calicoaster for including Tong Ren and for fairly accurately describing it in a limited space.

      I would add tapping the doll with a magnetic hammer and that absolutely anyone can use a doll and magnetic hammer to benefit with virtually no training. Thousands of people have benefited from the free treatments that are given in group sessions, over teleconference calls and over the internet. As such, the volume of healing that can be done may have the greatest impact on society. We are also healing cancer at a very high rate.

      As Wisewolf pointed out, the path to the most effective forms of healing is not easy. It may also depend upon each individuals unique sensitivity to energy. For example, it sounds like pranic masters may be chosen based upon their proven energetic talents as well as their training. I would say that healers are best served by studing different disciplines to find which method works best for them.

      In my experience Tong Ren, a very strong energy transmission method works very well in combination with other forms of energetic healing.

      I don't think that the real issue is which method is the strongest. In many countries energetic healing is disrespected by the conventional medical establishment. Tong Ren, in its simplicity and effectiveness, may have the greatest chance of being scientifically proven. This will open the door to greater acceptance of all energetic healing methods.

      Thanks for the info wisewolf. I have learnt and read about pranic healing from books and net surfing, but I was actually treated once by Reiki, by one of my friends who is a reiki practitioner. So, may be because of my experience, I subconsciously kept reiki at the top. Going by your advice, I will surely look into the depths about pranic healing. Thanks again!

      Pranic healing is by far the most powerful and thouroughly developed energy healing system on the planet. I take it the author has never been to a pranic healing class? I'm sure you chose reiki as your #1 for its popularity alone, but did you know that a reiki "master" is usually a less effective healer than an experienced advanced pranic healer? It takes years upon years to reach master level in pranic healing, unlike reiki mills who dish out 'master' titles like hot cakes. Basically if you have the money for the reiki classes, you can take them all consecutively and become a reiki master in 2 weeks. In pranic healing, one has to have a proven track record of instantaneous healings to be considered for Mastership. A master pranic healer can usually cure most illnesses in 1 to 2 sessions if karmically permissible. I urge everyone to take a pranic healing class and compare it to reiki. There is simply no comparison.

      Unlike pranic healing, reiki does not contain:

      a. Sensitizing

      b. Scanning

      c. Increasing receptivity of the patient

      d. General sweeping (general cleansing)

      e. Localized sweeping (localized cleansing)

      f. Stabilizing

      g. Cutting and releasing

      i. Healing using color pranas

      Reiki does not recognize the factor of contamination from diseased energy, nor the concept of sweeping before energizing. When you fill an already full cup with more liquid, it overflows and is wasted. In pranic healing we empty the cup first, (sweep and remove diseased energy) before reenergizing with clean energy. In reiki, energy is projected into usually already dirty and congested chakras which causes radical reaction, (where the patient gets worse before he gets better). Unless the reiki practitioner has a well refined energy body, his patients will experience radical reaction.

      Hope this clears up a few misconceptions.
