5 Ways to Cleanse Your Energy Field

5 Ways to Cleanse Your Energy FieldBy Emma Suttie, D.Ac, AP

Everything is the universe is made of energy; from the planets to rocks, to human beings. Energy affects all of us, which is why it is a good idea to keep your personal energy field clean and free of negative influences and vibrations. For a healer, this is extremely important, so many healers have rituals that they perform to ready their energy for the healing session as well as cleansing their energy afterward. I know that before I see a patient before I even enter the room with them I make sure that I take a moment to clear my head, ground myself and set an intention for the session. After the session, I make sure to cleanse my energy so that I am not carrying any remnants of the previous person's energy to the next patient, as well it is a sort of recalibration, or reboot of your energy field so that you are starting fresh with each patient.

Ask Dr. MaoQ: I suffer from spinal subluxation, due to a car accident that occurred three years ago. Now the chiropractor wants me to undergo very expensive therapy sessions to fix my spine. Is there an effective natural treatment with traditional Chinese medicine for spinal subluxation that may be more affordable for me?

A: Unfortunately, this is a physical structural problem that does require manipulation to help return the posture. The concern is that time has passed since the accident, which makes things more chronic, therefore requiring longer treatments.

In China, an oriental bodywork technique called Tuina could be used very effectively. Unfortunately, due to regulations, acupuncturists are limited in ways of manipulation. In this case, acupuncture can help with the symptoms, but by itself will not be able to resolve the underlying structural problem.
