Energy healing is a department of alternative and complementary healing in which a healer can send energy into a person that will heal them.
This energy can be passed on through a few different methods. Hands on energy healing is done through actual touch between the healer and the patient. Hands off energy healing is done by spreading energy over the patient without ever coming in contact with them. Distant healing can be done when the healer and the patient are not even in the same location. Through these different methods healers have the ability to help people with mental, physical, and emotional problems.
The healer does their healing by visualizing the patient in a perfect form of health. This feeling is said to be given off as heat. While the mechanisms are still a mystery it is said to do with quantum mystical processes that can be passed long distances which explains the distant healing services. It is also said that healers pass on bioelectromagnetism to their patients and that this energy is interpreted by the body. By having the perfect form of health in mind the body will then know how to heal itself.
Energy healing does not have much evidence in its favor but the believers of this method believe in the results. Psychological damage may be the one and only problem that energy can heal because the energy healer does provide therapeutic services during the healing. However, the passage of bioelectromagnetism may be the source of this healing but that is still highly criticized.
