Energy healing is a holistic approach to well-being and healing that is based on the idea that there is a subtle energy that flows through and around our bodies. This energy is often referred to as "life-force energy," and it goes by different names in various cultures, such as chi in Chinese medicine or prana in Ayurveda.
Energy healing is based on the overall structure of the human body. The human body consists of 2 parts: the physical body and the energy body. The energy body is where the seven major chakras are found. It is also consists of several subtle energetic bodies such as etheric body, emotional body, mental body, spiritual body and astral body. The energy body also penetrates the physical body and extends beyond it by a couple of inches.

For a disease to show up in the physical body, the disease energy first appears in the energy body. Disease energy usually caused by either a lack of life-force energy or
When any of the chakras or the subtle energetic bodies are blocked by suppressed emotions or negative thoughts, it affects the flow of life-force energy. It either allows a very small amount of life-force energy to flow through or completely block it from flowing throughout the chakras and the rest of the body, both physical and energy body.
By healing the energy body, the physical body gets healed in the process.
