What is Alternative
Energy Healing?

Over the past decade, alternative energy healing has risen in popularity. Public opinion has turned in its favor as we all try to find natural ways to heal our bodies, minds and spirits. In an attempt to tap into our natural healing powers, we are turning to the healing energy that lies within us all.

Those who are moving towards such alternative medicine may accept certain essential alternative energy healing practices. In doing so, we begin to realize the body is more than a physical shell. We're proposing acceptance of an approach that perceives the body as a component in a holistic approach to self-healing. We're committing ourselves to seeing our bodies in a new light – one that accepts our innate ability to release subtle healing energy when necessary.

This is not to dismiss the doubts surrounding certain practices. It is also not trivializing mainstream or conventional medicine. What we propose when regarding energy work is that we all keep an open mind.

Homeopathy, for example, is accepted in several countries where once it was ignored. Nursing professionals and their organization recognize Healing Touch (HT) as being effective. Moreover, I suggest the two types of medical approaches should work together to ensure we live life as we should.


What is Energy Work?

Energy work, healing energy, energy therapy and energy medicine are all found under the title, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM). It is a healthy choice with significant evidence of its benefits. Energy work is holistic in nature. This means it addresses the body as a whole. In examining a patient, the practitioner will look at all the physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual aspects that comprise it. This is typical of most forms of CAM.

The focal point of treatment is not a specific organ or body part. In alternative energy healing work, the major concern is energy. This energy, practitioners believe, comprises the make-up of the body. The Chi, or life force, determines whether the body remains healthy on all levels.

Who Does Energy Work ?

Someone trained in the particular technique of energy systems does the best energy work. A spiritual healer, a Reiki Master or an acupuncture or acupressure specialist is best qualified to treat a client in their form of energy medicine. Therefore, do not only select the most suitable form of energy work, but also someone who has been trained properly in the field. Beyond their knowledge and training, look expecially at their awareness and conduct !

There are several different types of energy work from which to choose. You may prefer Therapeutic Touch (TT). Someone else may like Qigong or Quantum Touch (QT). Spiritual Healing includes also energy work and more. There are also other forms. They include:

  • Acupuncture/acupressure
  • Yoga meditation
  • Pranic Healing
  • Meditation
  • Restorative Touch
  • Polarity Therapy
  • Healing Touch
  • Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)
  • Energy Focused Bodywork

Do your research on both the practice and the practitioner before you decide which will suit your needs best.

How Does it Work ?

While practitioners may employ different approaches, the overall purpose is to balance the energy within the body. This energy goes by different names. It is our life-force energy, Chi (Qi), Bioenergy or Prana. This energy flows along channels or meridians - depending upon the system. In Reiki, there are seven energy centers, or Chakras.

The practitioner sees where the energy is blocked. He or she may perceive an imbalance. The next move is to remove the blockage and/or balance the energy. When the energy flows freely and is in balance with the body, the body will be healthy at all levels.

QT practitioners use breathing and self-awareness techniques to help the individual increase their amount of energy. A QT practitioner will then direct the energy to where it's most needed. In some practices, meditation is responsible for helping you unleash the life force. Other individuals rely on an energy healing prayer to help them bring about the necessary change(s).


Does alternative energy healing actually work? If we believe, as Ted Andrews, author, does that “The human body is an energy system”, the answer is yes. If we believe our bodies can heal themselves, the answer is also yes. If we believe that someone, including ourselves, can help direct the energy to abet the healing process, then, undoubtedly, energy work works.

What clients say

I went to Massimo for a healing session in which I experienced calmness and opening of my heart.
All the sadness I had as a child and images from my childhood went by and were gone. An hour treatment went by like ten minutes. In other times I experienced very deep meditations, quietness, yet very alert and awake. Thanks Massimo for helping me get in touch with the healing force within me.

- Liat, Netanya, Israel


Dear Massimo, thanks so much for your healing sessions. So many things changed and improved since the beginning of your treatments. You are very gifted and all you are doing arises from the depth of your heart and the depth of the knowledge you channel. I highly recommend you as a healer.

- Zvi, Tel Aviv, Israel


Good luck: with this single word I can express what I feel to have met Massimo.
I have been knowing him for 10 years and working with him I have done a path to awareness.
He is a good teacher, sincere, honest, which guides you to the truth and peace that our heart desires and can achieve.
- Tiziana, Arezzo, Italy


For me, healing means integrity and the consistency of living my daily life, relationships and job in the way of my true "I".
Massimo has the rare ability to lead people, and therefore me, to
transform obstacles that stand between you and what you want to realize in available energy. He does so with great respect, patience and lack of judgment.
Massimo, thanks for all that I get from you.

- Maria, Udine, Italy

When Massimo gave me healing sessions online, I experienced him as a sensitive and dedicated man who has the gift to sense into deeper layers of the soul and affect them in a gentle and non intruding way. His careful way of approaching the pain in my eyes and the feedback he gave me from his sensitive perceptions helped me to gain trust and confidence in my healing process.
