Energy Healing Techniques that create powerful changes

Many healing modalities are energy based. Energy healing techniques are being discovered and although they seem new to us, they are not new at all. Some of these techniques you can learn to do for yourself, like Reiki, EFT and energy clearing. Others require practitioners. All of the modalities are considered healing and can be used together.

Chakras and Energy Centers

This isn’t a energy healing modality, but is important to talk about whenever mentioning energy clearing or energy healing. The human energy field and chakras are essential to understand, or at least become somewhat familiar with.

These are where the physical meets the non physical and is where energy healing techniques do the work. There are 7 major in-body chakras, that we will focus on here, but there are actually many more.

There are also an additional 8 major chakras located outside of the physical body. These range from below your feet, the center of the earth, above your head, and out into the universe.

Each chakra corresponds to different energies, different organs and layers of the energy field. They each vibrate at different frequencies and have specific colors, tones, musical notes, etc. It is easy to get lost in this so to keep it fairly simple, I’ve created a little chart that will give you a general overview.

There are many books and videos about the chakras and there is very detailed and important information to help you in the field of energy healing.

Basically, very basically, the lower 3 chakras are related to the physical and the upper 3 relate to the spiritual. They meet at the heart and balances between them. The goal is to have all the chakras aligned and balanced, not being too open or too closed, over-working or under-working. Balance is the goal.

Hands on or hands off…

Energy Healing Hands
Energy Healing Techniques, Hands on Healing

For healing, the hands have been one of the best tools available. Energy flows from the energy centers (chakras)located in the palms. Healing energy flows from the healer to the client. These chakra centers can be opened with training and practice. However, not all energy healing  techniques use the hands-on method. In fact, I think most do not, but that’s just my opinion. Lets start with one that can be either version or a combination.


Reiki is a Japanese energy healing technique and can be traced back to the early 1900’s. Matiji Kawakami, a Japanese therapist, originally wrote a book about this healing art and then later to Mikao Usui (or Usui Sensei) started his Usui Reiki method.

This flowing of universal life energy is the channeling of subtle healing energy. It can be life transforming. Reiki is now being used around the country in hospital and healing centers, as it is an effective but gentle healing modality.

There are many stories of miraculous transformations and healing due to this energy technique. To find a qualified Reiki practitioner, you can just ask around with friends or at a local spa. It is becomming much easier to find a Reiki healer.  This type of energy healing can be done in a spa or office setting.  It can be also performed at a distance, called distance healing.

Reiki can be incredibly powerful on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels. This is one of the most gentle but profound energy clearing techniques available.

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

This is a hands on, but self healing technique. It works by tapping on the energy meridian points on your face and body, while mentally thinking (of what you need to work on). This simple technique can clear out the blocked energy. It works in the case of physical pain and also for mental or emotional stress.

EFT works wonders for cravings too, so if you know someone who is working at letting go of a craving, this tool is amazing. There are many practitioners who incorporate this into their energy healing techniques toolbox, and you can learn the basics of an EFT energy clearing  session in no time!


Meditation energy healing techniques

Ok, so this doesn’t normally seem like an energy healing technique or energy healing modality, but is certainly can be. Once you become proficient at getting into the brain wave meditative state of theta, you will change your energy frequency and let go of old “stuff”.  That’s one of the powerful benefits of meditation. By quieting (or ignoring) the mind, you are changing your energy. In my opinion, this is energy healing.

Pranic Healing

This is one of the most common hands on energy healing techniques. Choa Kok Sui (1952–2007) developed Pranic healing as a hand off energy healing system . The practitioner use a no touch healing technique, that uses energy or prana to treat various illnesses. Pranic healing works on the physical, emotional and mental bodies.

Jin Shin Jyutsu

According to I FLOW Studios Owner Caressa Ayres, JIN SHIN JYUTSU is the Art of releasing disharmony/ imbalance/ tensions, which are the causes for various symptoms in the body. Our bodies contain several energy pathways that feed life into all of our cells.

When one or more of these paths become blocked, this damming effect may lead to discomfort or even pain. This blockage or stagnation will not only disrupt the local area, but will continue and eventually dis-harmonize the complete path or paths of the energy flow. This may cause pain and eventually lead to more serious health problems.

Jin Shin Jyutsu employs twenty-six “safety energy locks” along these energy pathways. We are endowed with the ability to harmonize and balance ourselves using our breath and our two hands, which act as jumper cables, to energize and revitalize the body’s system.

By holding these 26 energy locks in combination, we can unblock and restore the flow of energy along its pathways to bring balance to mind, body and spirit…To learn more about this cutting edge energy healing technique, visit 

Hypnotherapy and Past Life Healing

Here’s another modality that is on the edge of being energetically based. As far as energy healing modalities go, It is one of my favorites.  I’ve seen so many incredible transformations with clients. There are practitioners that understand the link between energy and the subconscious mind and thus know that when they shift the subconscious, they affect the clients energy.

Many hypnotherapists combine typical energy work with hypnosis, especially when it comes to past life healing regression. It is profoundly healing to go back to a real or imagined past life wound or trauma and heal it. It’s life changing really.

Energy Clearing

Energy Clearing Techniques to clear emotions
Energy Clearing

My personal favorite. This is the clearing of stuck energy from the past. Energy, in this modality, is anything from emotion, belief, habit or even a traumatic memory or event to childhood imprints and conditioning.

In this energy clearing technique, energy is considered to be the building blocks of the negative condition the client is experiencing. This energy is then broken down into it’s building blocks and is simply remove (or cleared).

There are a few ways to accomplish this clearing. One is by commanding, using certain words and phrases to remove the blocked energy pattern. The other is by visual codes. I have a free energy training on my site that really explains energy clearing in more detail where you can experience this amazing process. (yes, again it’s my favorite)


Homeopathy is a true energy healing technique that uses the energy signature of a healing substance. This is a form of energy medicine that when examined under a microscope it undetectable. This is because the active ingredient is no longer detectable. The original compound was diluted to the point that only its energy essence remains, and none of the physical form.

This energy treatment can be used instead of the traditional pharmaceutical compounds being prescribed. Homeopathy began in Germany, and t has been in use for over 200 years. It is not possible to take too much of a homeopathic remedy because, technically, the substance doing the healing is undetectable.

Shamanic Healing

A shamanic healing is most definitely included in the powerful energy healing techniques. The shamanic practitioner is guided by their own team of spirits, animal totems and spirits and helpers to create wholeness for the client. They use spiritual power, instead of energy. They go to get power for themselves and to bring power back to the client. This healing modality may involve removing energy that doesn’t belong or bringing back missing energy or “soul loss” by doing soul retrieval. The practitioner enters an altered state by the use of drumming, chanting, and often dancing, and journeys to meet the spirits. This can be an incredibly powerful experience. Some cultures include the use of plant medicine (hallucinogens) in the process, but many do not, and they are not necessary. The healing shaman be directed as to what to do by his spirits and this can often be surprising.


Energy Clearing Techniques Smudging
Smudging for Energy Clearing

Many energy healing techniques include smudging, a shamanic practice of clearing the energy by burning sage (lavender, cedar, or other medicinal plants). This can also be done by rattling, drumming or chanting although the smudge stick is the probably the easiest way to start. While smudging, just visualize the negativity leaving and positive pure clean energy replacing it. This is one of the modalities and techniques that you can easily begin to use on your own, and will often feel very noticeable shifts in energy.

Quantum Touch

The Energy modality of Quantum-Touch uses life-force energy (known as chi in Chinese and prana in Sanskrit) to facilitate healing. The Quantum-Touch techniques teach us how to focus and amplify life-force energy by combining various breathing and body awareness exercises.

Quantum-Touch actually provides healing energy for the practitioner as well as for the person seeking healing. Using the Quantum-Touch techniques, the practitioner can hold an extraordinarily high vibration; this high vibration not only influences the client, but also provides healing energy for the practitioner….extracted from the Quantum Touch Official Website.

Many people talk about the mind-body connection and really how in the world could you even separate the two. The body is though of to be a representation of the subconscious mind and when you work on healing the physical you affect the mental, emotional, and spiritual, too.

Often a good massage is enough to do a healing, by releasing thoughts and emotions that have become stuck in the body.


Acupuncture is a system of healing that works to keep or return your body to balance. It is based on the premise that when in balance, you will experience health. This healing technique involves fine needles inserted into points on your body, which allow the energy to begin to move and circulate. This stimulates your bodys own repair mechanism to heal. Acupuncture can be used for many illnesses and conditions.

Although acupuncture often requires more than a few visits,  it has been responsible for many powerful healing sessions and reversal of diseases.


Vibrational Medicine and Flower Essences

Flower Essences help to heal Emotions

Flower essences are an energy healing technique and  a vibrational medicine. They are similar to homeopathy in that the flower or plant has been diluted to contain only the energetic essence. There is no smell or taste, just the energy.

Many plants have unique healing energies, and they work on healing the emotional level. The flower of the plant is usually what is used to make the flower essence. Many flower essences are readily available, and you can even learn to make your own.

Look for essences in health food stores or online. An experienced flower essence practitioner can intuitively create a custom blend for you . You take flower essences by putting the drops in a glass of water, or taking them directly in the mouth.  Some people have an emotional reaction,  so it’s best to start off slow. (A friend of mine had a long week of crying when she experienced them for the first time. she went all in but felt amazing when it was over!)

Essential Oils

Essential Oils

Chances are, this modality isn’t in the energy healing techniques basic toolbox, but it works so well with many others modalities I felt like I needed to include it. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years as natural and safe remedies for all types of ailments.

You can create powerful healing remedies that can be used for hundreds of thousands of conditions, by distilling or extracting the different parts of plants, including the flowers, leaves, bark, roots, resin and peels.

Essential oils can be used to balance hormones, boost the immune system, support digestion, boost energy levels. They can improve brain function, reduce emotional stress and anxiety, and alleviate aches and pains. Oils can also boost skin and hair health, reduce toxicity, alleviate headaches and migraines, and promote restful sleep….According to this pinned article by Dr Axe

Combinations of Energy Healing Techniques

Many practitioners end up developing their own combination of energy healing techniques. They may combine two or more modalities to create their own unique blend.  Even though I started with Reiki, I followed the energy healing path down through the hypnotherapy and meditation world.  Eventually, I ended up diving into the energy clearing modality. Everything shifts and changes. It’s a journey.

With some clients I use hypnosis and with others I teach EFT. I love past life healing. The combination of Past life healing and Energy Clearing is one of the most powerful modalities available.

My acupuncturist uses essential oils and hypnosis.

There are so many energy healing techniques, such as being in nature or practicing yoga. The list is never-ending, really.


It’s important to use your own intuition and discernment and to listen to what sounds or feels right to you. If you have an uneasy feeling about a practitioner, look for another. Not all practitioners do things the same way or even remotely similar! Go with what you are drawn to. There are so many energy healing modalities and combinations of these, you will do best by intuitively picking what you find exciting or interesting.
