I often have people asking me what “energy work” is so I borrowed a brief explanation from www.healing-for-wellbeing.com: "Generally speaking, it is acknowledged that energy therapy encourages the body to draw upon its natural healing ability by opening up the flow of energy, clearing emotional blockages and detoxifying itself."

The human energy field sets the foundation for the physical body. So, if the energy field goes wrong, this will eventually affects the physical body. A disease and ill-heath manifest themselves first in our energy field before showing up on our physical bodies.

The human being is an open system of energy that lives in an energy environment which is constantly shifting and moving. A healthy body thrives in this environment with a clean continuous flow of balanced energy.

When there is a conflict with the environment around us (for example the unhealthy food we eat, common day stress from work or relationships, the quality of the polluted air and water we breathe, etc.) a healthy energy system is able to release this excessive energy immediately because our natural flow of energy always moves towards generating perfect health and well-being.

As an analogy, just as water surrounds the sea creatures and is vital for fish species, the surrounding energy field baths our bodies through and through to keep us alive. A healthy fish swallows up water to get nourishment before releasing it.

Likewise, the human being does not just swallow air to breath but also –through the various energy centers of his/her body, called chakras- absorbs the surrounding energy force, or life force, to revitalize himself or herself before letting go off the extra energy that is not needed
