Exploring Essential Energy Healing

There's a place in Lacombe, Alberta, Canada that calls itself Essential Energy Healing (EEH). Its focus is on helping individuals relax and regain their enjoyment of life. This spa provides all the services it can to help its clients become healthier holistically. It tries to help them become well in mind, body and spirit.

This is not the only such place to offer these services. Alternative energy healing is becoming more than just a fad. It's no longer considered a fringe form of alternative treatments. In fact, energy work is becoming generally accepted. It's being absorbed by the field of medicine called Complementary and alternative Medicine (CAM).

This is not to say that energy work is a new comer. Reiki, for example, and some forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine have been employed for centuries. The use of essential energy in healing, however, is new. EEH is a Western form created by Mary Maddux.

What is EEH?

EEH is a combination of different healing methods. It combines two specific forms: energy therapy and spiritual healing. It results partially from Muddox’s training in Healing Touch (HT). She also became well versed in meditation.

The result resembles Reiki. The practitioner helps improve the health and well-being – spiritual, emotional, psychological and physical - through one or a few methods, including:

  • Employing a hands-on method
  • Utilizing a hands-off technique

Both methods require the practitioner to pay close attention to two fields of energy – his or her own and that of the patient. If both believe in and accept the intent of the session, the energy of the two will resonate. This will result in the necessary alignment and/or realignment of the energy within the client.

Other Forms of Energy Healing

Essential energy healing is one form of alternative energy healing. This form of subtle healing energy is a modern adaptation of other types such as Reiki, Qigong, Yoga and Acupuncture/Acupressure. It also has much in common with . . .

  • Biofield energy
  • Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)
  • Faith Healing
  • Feldenkreis work
  • Meditation – certain forms of meditation are implemented for self healing
  • Polarity Therapy
  • Spiritual Healing – generally secular or at least non-denominational
  • Therapeutic Touch (TT)

In fact, we can argue that essential energy healing is another variation on what is becoming a wide range of different healing programs – all based on the belief that the body consists of energy. Whether it's through an energy healing prayer or the result of a meditative journey, energy-healing therapies are currently offering us a choice of how we wish to explain the process.

Energy Healing Techniques

Energy work may be a hands-on, hands off or long-distance healing process. The techniques may help heal an individual by working with and through any of the following:

  • Channels or Meridians – common for TCM
  • Chakras – Reiki, for example
  • Astral layer
  • Different spiritual layers – a system defined by Barbara Brennan
  • Vibrational energy bodies – noted by Duane Packer and Sanaya Roman

Energy Healing – The Future

Essential energy healing is one of the newer approaches to helping us heal our bodies. Relying on ancient methods of healing, it works within the CAM system to treat us holistically.

Many question to what extent our bodies can heal themselves. Newer research and the ability for scientific equipment to register energy levels and types in and around the body are now available. This makes what seems unreal and science fantasy an ever-increasing reality.

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.
