Energy healing

Energy treatments

Many of us are seeking more energy and vitality. If you are feeling tired, bored and listless, energy therapy might be for you.

Why do people come for treatments?

  • handle stress
  • self-care and self-compassion
  • feel nurtured
  • achieve profound states of relaxation
  • feel in a safe place to allow their physical holding patterns to drop
  • allow energy to flow smoothly and evenly around the body
  • lie down in a beautiful space, feel listened to and feel held with compassion

What is energy healing?

In Ayurveda, there is a relationship between thoughts, emotions, diet, movement, our relationships and our healthiness at the cellular level. 

As we choose nurturing and positive thoughts and interactions, we bathe our cells in nourishment. When we select wellness, this radiates internally and externally. This intelligence directs cellular health. In yoga, this flow of energy and intelligence is Prana. In Chinese medicine, it is Chi. 

Disturbances in this energy flow come from stress, anxiety, time pressure, being away from nature, poor diet, poor sleep patterns, or many other reasons. The disturbance in the flow of this vital life force can harm our cellular health.

Energy therapists believe that they can encourage the body and mind with subtle adjustments to achieve a profound sense of relaxation. In this relaxed state, energy flows, and the cells naturally return to balance, harmony and health. At the core of both Ayurveda and Chinese medicine is that in states of flow and relaxation, the cells naturally return to a state of good health.

Is there any real evidence for this?

A few years ago, Elizabeth Blackburn won the Nobel Prize to discover the protective caps on chromosomes called “telomeres.” When a cell divides, the protective caps are eroded, and with time, the telomeres shorten. As they shorten, cells start to malfunction and lose their ability to divide healthily. 

Based on Blackburn’s research, scientists use telomere length as a metric for the ageing process and susceptibility to disease risk. Blackburn also discovered an enzyme called “telomerase,” which protects the chromosomal caps from cellular division or ageing wear and tear. 

The more telomerase activity you have, the longer your telomeres will be; the less telomerase you have, the shorter your telomeres will be. The shorter your telomeres, the more exposed to ageing, degeneration and disease you become.

In follow up studies by Blackburn, a meditation group was seen to have up to a 30% increase in telomerase activity. Another study conducted at UCLA showed a 43% increase in telomerase activity.  

Perhaps this nurturing and relaxation place enables cells to return to the place of balance, harmony, and healing.
