July 2009 Mayo Clinic Women's HealthSource Highlights Food Storage Safety, Energy Therapies and Vitamins and Minerals
Date:7/22/2009

g touch: Also known as therapeutic touch, healing touch is meant to stimulate the body's self-healing processes. Gentle touching moves energy from the practitioner to the recipient, strengthening and reorienting the recipient's energy flow within and around the body. Some people find healing touch relaxing. There's little evidence to suggest other health benefits.

Qi gong: The Chinese word "qi gong" combines the term "qi" (chee), which means life force or vital energy, and "gong" (kung), meaning accomplishment or skill. Qi gong has many forms and is a common health practice throughout China. Two of the most common forms are tai chi and kung fu. In general, qi gong combines rhythmic movements, breathing techniques and focused intentions. Some approaches increase energy while others are used to cleanse and heal the body.

Reiki: In a reiki session, the practitioner's hands are positioned either on or a few inches above the recipient's body. The goal is to raise the amount of "ki", or life force energy, in and around the person. The reiki practitioner uses between 12 and 15 different hand positions, holding each one for several minutes until the flow of energy slows or stops.

Like healing touch, reiki can promote relaxation. One study suggests it may positively affect blood pressure and heart and respiration rates.

Because of a lack of research, it's hard to say for certain that energy therapies are completely safe and work or don't work. Still, for people drawn to these approaches, they may be worth a try.
