Energy healing is often used to promote better physical / mental well-being, or for better physical / mental health. Anyone can benefit from energy healing. Often, people seek energy healing to reduce their stress and anxiety. But it is increasingly being used in patients receiving cancer therapy / treatment — and also studied to find out if it can improve quality of life, boost the immune system, and / or reduce side effects.
Energy healing can also be referred to as energy medicine or vibrational healing / medicine. The “energy” used in this method is so-called subtle energy — because it cannot be empirically measured. Therefore, there are still many people who are sceptical of opting for energy healing because it lacks the biological plausibility of traditional (mainstream) therapies.
