Energy Work

Energy work is the concept of working with universal life force energy, qi or prana. It stands for the non-physical energy, which creates and maintains a balanced and healthy body,mind, and spirit. When this energy is blocked, there is an imbalance that often creates disease.

The ability to heal is as natural as the ability to breathe, and through energy work, a practitioner essentially guides each person to bring healing and balance back into their awareness. The practitioner works with seven of the main energy systems in the body, called chakras. These wheels of energy start at the crown of the head and move down the spine, all the way to the feet. When there is an imbalance in these energy centres, or blockages, there is a disruption in the natural flow of energy in our bodies, which can cause an imbalance in the body and mind.

I like to think of the spine as a drain of energy. If the drain clogs, energy will back up and build up. Through energy work, a practitioner will place their hands on the seven energy centres up and down the spine to balance the chakras, therefore aiding in balancing the body and mind.
