7 Healing Modalities That Work!

We have a natural ability to heal our lives on all levels, and when we tap into our personal power, we begin to ignite the conscious energy within. As we aspire to take care of ourselves mind, body, soul and spirit, we ignite the healing powers that can transform our health and wellness. There are many natural ways to help ourselves heal and here are just a few. Please note that this article is in no way suggesting you do not seek professional or modern day medicine advice. It is only to be used as a guide for other holistic ways of healing.

Energy Healing Modalities

Depending upon the method, energy healing is focused on the life force energy that resides within us as well as all around us. Reiki, Chi, BodyTalk, Qigong, and Quantum Touch are just to name a few. Although the mainstream society doesn’t fully accept these healing techniques, they have proven to be beneficial and powerful healers to those that have embraced them.

Reiki is healing energy that focuses on using Universal energy channeled through the hands to help move and heal the energy within. It can be used for stress reduction and relaxation as well as emotional, mental and physical healing.

Chi Energy is said to be the living electricity of our biology. We have electricity inside of us that through the practice of Chi, can be used to remove blockages, align and infuse you with Chi energy, and close up any open “wounds” that are draining your power. Qigong also comes in the form of Chi but is more focused on preserving your Jing (the essence of who we are and what we are; The true energy of life) and helping you become the most balanced you can be. Quantum Touch uses Chi or Prana to access your full potential on all levels. 

BodyTalk seeks to address the “whole person” and connects into those areas of your body that need attention.  Our bodies can hold onto energy and store it, thus blocking us from our power and healing. With Bodytalk, you can access the keys to unlocking your healing potential as well as replenishing your energy needs.

Chakra Healing can also be used to activate and empower your energy centers within your body. Root for safety and security. Sacral for relationships, emotions and sexual energies. Solar Plexus for your personal power. Heart for love, healing and empowerment. Throat for communication, self-expression, and knowledge. Third Eye for intuition and divine communication. Crown for divinity, Universe and Consciousness.

There are many meanings and healings that each chakra embodies.


Meditation simply put, is a way to bring mindful awareness to consciousness and the energy within us and around us. It helps connect us with our inner power as it shows us ways to help heal our lives. It reduces stress, promotes peace and stability, and has even proven to be effective on PTSD patients. The benefits of meditation are many and if you are seeking full connection to your inner power, meditation can help you align with it.

It can also be used to hold vision and goals, to keep you focused and balanced on the path to achieving success.

With health and wellness, meditation can alleviate pain and suffering and act as an inner strength where it is needed. In my opinion, meditation is an art of our true essence and one with our soul’s power.

Music is also an incredible healer especially that which has a theta or binaural vibrational frequency. Listening to sound healing can help change your energy and encode a higher frequency into your DNA.


Have you ever listened closely to the wave crashing on the shore, or the trees swaying in the wind? How about watching those butterflies or the deer crossing a field?  Perhaps you have felt the rush of fresh air as you take a deep breath in. Maybe you have even experienced the grass beneath your feet or the mud between your toes a few times in your life.

This is the healing power that nature gives us. The sensual feelings and deeply connected roots she bestows upon us each and every day. Nature has a way with healing like no other. Her landscape shares with us a beautiful sense of belonging, and as we lay with her green fields or her snow-covered mountains, there is a sense of peace and tranquility.

Whenever you need her, she is there. Mother Earth provides us with streams, rivers, mountains, herbs, roots, and all that sustains us.

Retreat into the authentic healing energy of nature to find balance, clarity and fresh air. Go for a walk in the woods to reflect. Swim in the lakes to cleanse. Hug a tree to recharge. Mother Nature is powerful.

Tibetan & Crystal Singing Bowls

I have recently gotten into this and have found it to be a tremendous healer in my life. Each morning I play my bowls and listen to the sound travel within me. there is something to be said about this form of sound healing.

Tibetan or Crystal singing bowls help facilitate the transformations and energy shifts your body, mind, and soul need. Energy vibration can be felt on all levels when you are bathed in this beautiful sound therapy. A sound bath has many health benefits and can be used to align and balance your energy centers as well.

Crystals & Stones

Crystals and stones are energy healers with unique and individual healing properties for each one. Quartz is one of the most powerful frequencies of energy we can use to heal the mind, body, soul, and spirit. they work on frequency and need to be cleared and charged as they are used. Most quartz crystals generate electricity and that is from the vibration of energy they carry.

Fun Fact: Most of our electronic devices have a quartz crystal frequency determining element. they are used to help stabilize and transmit frequency.

Acupuncture, Reflexology & Massage

To promote the flow of “qi” traditional Chinese medicines would use acupuncture, reflexology, and massage to improve circulation and movement for the mind, body and soul.  Pressure points are used to relieve stress and open up the energy so it flows with your life force.  All of these techniques can be used to heal mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies.

Herbs/Healthy Foods, Activity

This may not be a healing modality, but it just as powerful to your health and wellness.

True story, what we put into and onto our bodies has a great effect on our health and wellness. Processed and refined foods and products are filled with chemicals and bi-products ( I am sure many more things too) and as we absorb or ingest these things, our health is hit on some degree.

I never used to care about what I ate or the products I used, not until I started realizing that some of the headaches I got were from too much sugar and some aches and pains I felt were from the lack of vitamins and nutrients my body was receiving. I also noticed certain lotions would make my skin bumpy especially those lower end ones.  Take a look at what your eating and the products you’re using, look at the ingredients, be mindful and aware.

Eating healthy, balancing our vitamins and minerals and exercising are important to our mental, emotional spiritual and physical health.  The way we take care of our health says a lot about our future health.
