What is Energy Healing?
Energy Healing focuses on regaining balance and alignment throughout the body's energy field. The body's energy field is called an Aura. Energy Healers train to detect congestion in the electromagnetic field that surrounds the body and work at reviving the energy flow. Congestion or blockages, as they are called, can be cause by physical, emotional, mental or spiritual trauma or can be a result of the standards, beliefs and self judgment a person sustains.
