The arts of healing and energy work encompass a broad range of techniques from those based on ancient practices to those derived from modern research. A variety of techniques are also influenced by a particular faith or understanding. While research is stronger for some areas of energywork and healing as it is for others, what we do know is that energy exists and the power and intent of the mind can be used to heal.
People may see an energyworker because they are affilitated with a particular faith, they prefer the chosen technique over other treatments, a/or nothing else has worked. Many people may use energy work in conjunction with other forms of Complementary and Alternative Medicine such as acupuncture, bodywork and herbal medicine.
