What is Energy Healing?

"Ok, but what is it you DO exactly?"

I smiled, knowing the concept of energy healing can feel foreign to those unfamiliar with this ancient holistic healing modality. After all, only a handful of years ago and I wondered the same. What does "energy healing" mean and how does it actually work?

"If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration"- Nikola Tesla

Our energy field is an electromagnetic field that extends beyond our physical body, sometimes referred to as your aura. We all have one. You know how you can feel an intense vibration, almost like an electric buzzing when you connect deeply with someone? Or how you can pick up on a person's demeanor or mood before even talking to them? This is because we connect through energy first and foremost... the words or physical contact come second.

There are three components that make up the "you" that is existing on this earth. These three parts come together to create the amazing human reading this right now. The thing about this triad of being, is that many of us have a lack of awareness as to the third. Here are those three components:

Your Body

Your physical body is made up of the organs, tissues, and cells that come together to create it. Everywhere you look, you're reminded to take care of your physical body. From your watch encouraging you to get enough movement, to the gym ad you saw near the grocery store when you were en route to pick out healthier food choices, you're constantly having your attention brought to your body. You buy products to put on the outside of your body, the inside of your body, and do activities specifically to keep it well.
