When we discuss the benefits of healing practices, it's also important to consider the restoring properties of touch and human contact. When a healer uses different touch and hand hovering techniques, their skills make an impact on your balance and energy, but the simple act of closeness, and human to human interaction has many benefits as well.
Why healing encourages closeness
One of the wonderful benefits of energy healing, is that so much communication and energy can pass between a healer and a patient without speaking. Healers can read the energies of their clients and get an understanding of their imbalances and pain, without the client needing to disclose their whole life stories. This connection through energy can itself be beneficial to clients, who may in some cases struggle with relationships.
In our modern times, many of us are lacking communities, or meaningful daily interactions with other people when we spend all our time working, or commuting. But healing practices can expedite a feeling of closeness, and encourage that unspoken communication that many of us are missing in our lives. Part of the human condition is the desire to be heard and understood. The bonding that happens between a healer and a client can fulfill this need.
Touch, itself, can be healing
The sensations of touch are extremely beneficial as well. As society becomes more individualistic and isolated, many of us are lacking the healing power of human touch and interaction. While a healer is practicing energy rebalance and restoration, even the physicality of the session can work to make a client feel restored and fulfilled in many ways.
Sometimes we can become unbalanced when family life, work life, or other stressors become overwhelming. Stress can make us feel alone, or like we have hidden struggles that are invisible to outsiders. Healing therapies can reduce those feelings of suppressed stress, and healing touch can relieve the sensations of loneliness or feeling like we are battling something on our own.
Strength transfer and taking control
One of the most positive experiences you can have from healing is the feeling that your internal strength is being restored. When a healer engages with your energies, they can feel where you are imbalanced or depleted. Healing touch and other practices can help to transfer the healers own strong energies to you, and help you engage in identifying your own sources of pain. When you are able to feel strong within yourself, and more centered in your energies, you are more capable to take control of your own life.
Through prolonged practice and repeated healing sessions, the rebalance you can feel and the long-term effects will only increase. Having regular connection with a healer and physical touch can lead to reduced stress and increased energy that can allow you to feel more stable and fulfilled in your life.
While there are many various benefits of healing, one of the biggest ones that you can feel immediately and long term is that of the power of touch. Human connection is so important for our health and wellbeing, and as a society we are increasingly lacking that. Through connecting with your healer, through the unspoken communication of energies and the power of touch, you can feel less alone, stressed, or unbalanced.
