The concept of energy has been around forever. Many energy practitioners believe that our bodies, and all material things we are surrounded by, are infused with a subtle life force that flows through us.

The balance within that flow is also a sign of good health, and just like doctors take care of physical ailments, energy healers look over this animating vital force. The basis of energy healing is removing any blocks and easing the movement of the energetic field in our bodies.

On a biological level, as your cells are also instilled with this energy, their functioning can be affected by the state of your energetic field. If energy flows slowly or is interrupted within the body, then the organs' functioning is also affected. It is all connected. The idea behind the basis of energy healing is that our bodies are a bank of energy, and, to paraphrase scientist Julius Robert Mayer, energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can only be transformed. And this transformation is part of an energy healer’s job.

How many kinds of energy healers are there?

Energy healers take this basic concept and apply it to multiple practices according to many different philosophies. Whether it is Chinese medicine, ayurvedic practices, Hindu yoga, or essential oils, you’ll notice it all builds upon the same core principles of energetic balance. There are many types of energy healers, and each of them has their own way of practicing energy healing that may or may not suit your needs.

This is an important consideration because the fact that you meet one energy healer doesn’t mean that you cannot consult others. And, more importantly, this also means that there isn’t just one way to practice energy healing.

When you are looking for an energy healer for yourself, the number of options and information can be overwhelming. It may be difficult to know right away which healer suits you and your needs in the best way. So, let’s take a look at some recommendations to choose the right energy healer for you.

How to choose the best energy healer for you

1. Define your needs

What areas of your life do you feel you need to achieve more balance? Even though energy healing aims to balance all aspects of life, as they are interconnected, it is easier to introduce yourself to these practices with a clear objective in mind.

Maybe your goal is staying healthier, finding a better job, having a baby, or finding the love of your life. Whatever it is, focusing on one at a time will help you determine the kind of energy healer you should be looking for.

Sometimes, you don’t know what you need or what you are looking for, as emotions can cloud your ability to see beyond them and that’s okay. When this happens, an energy healer can guide you towards the type of healing that might serve you better. So don’t feel pressured to know everything right away, feel free to explore.

Remember each energy healer has their own unique style and they might mix elements from different practices with their own backgrounds during the sessions. For instance, an energy healer with a background in psychology will give you a completely different approach than one with a background in nutrition. Take note of this and look for an energy healer with experience in the areas you want to heal first.

Look for recommendations

The best testimony you can get to find a good energy healer is from someone who has already had a session with one. Ask your friends or look for recommendations online to see what features people highlight from their experience. This will give you a point of comparison to start.

Now, it would also serve you to have a list of things you are looking for and the needs you identified before so you can start discarding options as you go.

2. Go to a session and see what your intuition tells you

Schedule a session with the energy healer you found to be most suitable for you. Make sure you go into this first experience open to the process and let your intuition talk. Is this person radiating positive energy? Is what he or she is saying resonating with you and your current process? Are you feeling comfortable throughout the process?

During the session, and even after if needed, ask as many questions as you need. Get to know how the energy healer you chose works, and how he or she can help you with that specific need.

3. Don’t be afraid to pivot

Be honest with yourself and don’t be afraid to change your energy healer if the one you chose first didn’t work out for you. Finding the right energy healer for you can take some time, so be patient here and listen to your intuition.

Remember the healing process can be uncomfortable as well, so try not to dismiss an energy healer right away. Give it some thought and take your time. It is okay if you don’t match with one energy healer and you decide to look for another one or give the healer another chance.

Even after a couple sessions, you can look for other healing methods if you feel like it’s not working. A relationship with any kind of energy healing technique makes you feel empowered and help you become independent from them. Healers who have a positive impact in your life allow you to grow and follow your journey on your own once you are ready to move on from their methods.

The most important thing about working with a new energy healer is to make sure they ask permission to tap into your energy. Allowing someone to work on your energy is highly personal and the individual who does it has to be someone you trust and you know has your best interest at heart. A good energy healer will always respect your personal believes and ask questions to make sure you are comfortable throughout the session. This sets up a boundary and starts to build trust. It is a way for you to know the facilitator respects your own agency.
