Energy Therapy is an umbrella-term of Eastern medicine techniques which involve the flow of vital energy and use of various types of subtle energy fields/frequencies, with the goal of balancing a patient's subtle energy body. Some techniques utilize light, sound, magnets, and crystals in treatments. Therapeutic methods are intended to affect energy fields that surround and penetrate the human body. New instruments, such as the superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID), are showing promise for research with energy therapy. Many of the techniques used in energy therapy come from practices in shamanistic Native American and Asian traditions with thousands of years of use. Shamanic healers believe that the flow and balance of life energies are important in maintaining health, and that illnesses originated from energy imbalances; thus, they developed therapies and practices to correct these imbalances.
