The Power of Energy Medicine

When it comes to alternative forms of healing, energy medicine is a common method. Also known as energy healing or energy therapy, this technique is found in a variety of different branches of complementary and alternative medicine practices. In fact, the various forms of healing energy are an integral part of many widely known treatments such as Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

The history of energy work in medicine shows a strong belief in the composition of the human body, starting with the ancients. In many cultures, the body is thought to consist of various forms of energy. In China and other Asian countries, energy is responsible for keeping the body healthy. This energy is called Qi or Chi.

Chi is the life force. It is what gives us all the ability to be physically and spiritually strong. Without healthy Chi, we are unhealthy on all levels of being. When the Chi is not in harmony within our body, it's time to consider energy medicine.

What is Energy Healing?

Energy Healing is based on two beliefs. The first is that the body consists of energy moving in channels (meridians) around and through the body. When there's too much or too little energy, we become sick. We may become physically, mentally, emotionally and/or spiritually ill when the energy levels are out of balance. This approach is a holistic one.

The second necessary component to help energy medicine work is the belief of the patient. He or she must accept as true the premise regarding energy. He or she must also have faith in the practitioner’s ability to alter the energy patterns. The practitioner may do so by turning to one of several different kinds of energy healing.

Energy Healing Modalities

In the world of complementary and alternative medicine, we can find many different approaches to energy healing. They may involve direct touching. This is exemplified by acupuncture and acupressure. Energy healing may also involve no touching at all. Reiki is an example of hands-off energy work. Healing may also occur from a distance. This energy work does not require the client and practitioner ever to meet.

Among the different types or modalities are the following:

  • Acupuncture/acupressure
  • Biofield energy
  • Chakra balancing – this approach uses energy to balance the different chakras of the body
  • Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)
  • Faith Healing – this is based on Christian prayer
  • Feldenkreis work
  • Meditation – certain forms of meditation are implemented for self healing
  • Polarity Therapy
  • Qigong – a form in which the practitioner manipulates energy to achieve balance
  • Reiki – similar to Qigong
  • Spiritual Healing – generally secular or at least non-denominational
  • Sufi dancing – dance as a means of creating a healthy body, healthy mind and healthy spirit
  • Therapeutic Touch (TT)
  • Visualization techniques – usually implemented with imagery and meditation Yoga – involves meditation and realignment of the energy fields

Finding the Right Therapy 

It's important we make an informed decision. The best place to start is with people who have already undergone treatment. Ask around. Try the local health food store. See if they can make any recommendations. Other sources for information include the internet, health centers and any alternative health clinic.

Before opting for any method, or visiting clinics, do the homework. Research the topic using the internet and the library. Make sure you have a clear understanding of two things:

  • What you want from energy healing
  • What each type of healing can do for you

It's important for all of us to feel confidence in any medical practitioner. It does't matter whether the professional is working in the conventional or alternative field of medicine. If you don't feel comfortable or have confidence in the practitioner, don't use their services.

The Final Word

Energy medicine can be a powerful tool in achieving wellness. Be sure to consider all the options available – including conventional medicine. Do not select a method or practitioner that isn't suited to your needs. While research may question some of the methods and science behind some forms of energy healing, evidence does support certain types. In fact, in some countries and among certain professions, energy work is not non-conventional medicine. It's the accepted norm.

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.
