Energy Based

Energy based alternative medicine techniques are based on the belief that there is a certain force or energy that sustains us and is responsible for our well-being. This belief is prevalent in many cultures and communities and, hence, origin of most of the energy based alternative medicine methods dates back to ancient times and cultures. There are many energies surrounding us, flowing inside us and affecting our body and mind. A regularised flow and balance of these energies is extremely essential for a healthy body and its surroundings. Any imbalance or blockages and hindrance in the flow of these energies can cause illness. The medical practitioner channels the energy flow and regulates it using various methods thus relieving the patient of the illnesses.
