Energy, or chi, is produced by living cells. It pools around those cells, and affects the cells bathed in it.

Healthy cells produce healthy chi. Inflamed cells produce inflamed chi. Arthritic cartilage produces arthritic chi. And so on.

If your knee is inflamed, it’s producing inflamed chi, which pools in your knee. Bathing in that inflamed chi isn’t good for the cells of your knee.

You can learn to move your own chi. If you’ve ever taken a tai chi class, the chi in tai chi refers to this energy. Same for chi gung. Those classes typically include physical exercise, along with exercises for moving your chi.

Energy healing uses more advanced techniques:

I’ve learned to use the chi of my body to read the chi of other people’s bodies. When I work with someone who has arthritis, I touch their joint, move my awareness to the edge of my energy field, and read the energy of their cartilage, bursa, nerves, and other tissues. Reading their chi helps me discern the correct healing techniques to use.

I’ve also learned to use the chi of my body to adjust the chi of someone else’s body. For example, when working with arthritis, I adjust the chi around the cartilage to be similar to the chi of a child’s cartilage, so the client’s cartilage is bathing in young, healthy chi. Clients are responding very well to this.

Energy healing acts on the cells of the body, and works whether you believe in it or not. And it can be used in conjunction with surgery, drugs, and all other Western medical care.

Energy healing has been well-researched since the 1970s, with excellent results in placebo-controlled trials and other studies. Learn more.
