Energy medicine, energy therapy, energy healing, or spiritual healing are branches of alternative medicine based on a pseudo-scientific belief that healers can channel healing energy into a patient and effect positive results. This idea itself contains several methods: hands-on, hands-off, and distant (or absent) where the patient and healer are in different locations. Practitioners do not see traditional religious faith as a prerequisite for effecting cures, according to Wikipedia.   

Some types of energy healing are as follows:  Acupuncture/Acupressure: Acupuncture and acupressure are part of an ancient and sophisticated system of therapies based on a non-Western model of the body. They work to balance chi/ki/qi as it flows through the body's meridian system; Chakra Healing: The chakras are a key part of our energy system, so many types of energy healing incorporate some form of chakra work: Donna Eden's Energy Medicine: Eden a pioneer in bringing the methods of energy medicine to the public; FT, or Emotional Freedom Techniques®, is one of the easily learned, meridian-based types of energy healing. It combines needle-free acupuncture with mind-body medicine; Energy-Focused Bodywork: All bodywork (massage) has an impact on your energy, but some kinds are intentional about it. Healing Touch Healing Touch (HT) came out of the licensed nursing community in the U.S. in the 1980s; Pranic Healing: Developed and taught by Master Choa Kok Sui, this kind of energy work uses prana or life energy to cure physical ailments; Reiki is perhaps the most widely known form of energy work, Reiki is easy to learn and do; Restorative Touch™ is a unique and powerful form of energy work that works on a resonance model to "support health, healing, and spiritual evolution."
