Created by Mary Maddux, Essential Energy Healing combines intuitive development with the principles of mediation to free built up energy blockages in the meridians of the body. Once the blockages are cleared, the universal energy of life can flow freely throughout.

Healing Energy

Just as clutter causes a build up of negative, stagnant energy in your home and must be removed to allow the flow of positive energy, damaging clutter builds up in the meridians of your body. These blockages slow down or stop, the flow of your essential universal life force, also known as chi or prana and are the result of stress, overwork and overexertion. Once blockages form and the flow of your essential force of life is interrupted, you become ill or injured. The illness can manifest in a physical, mental or spiritual way.

All types of energy healing works to correct the imbalances and disturbances that exist in the body's energy field, which is also known as your aura. Once balance is restored and blockages removed, the flow of energy helps the body to heal.

What is Essential Energy Healing?

Healing, using essential energy techniques, takes place when the practitioner, or healer, uses their healing energy to balance the body's energy working with the spirit, mind and body of the person receiving the treatment. The healer usually does this by placing his hands on, or just above, the body where the energy blockages are felt. This type of healing is often combined with other forms of energy healing such as Reiki.

The term Essential Energy Healing is also the name of a series of workshops that Mary Maddux developed. These workshops, which teach others to use the gift of using essential energy to heal others.

The Meridians of the Human Body

Energy healing takes place in the meridians of the body. Meridians are on the body's surface, as well as internal and are the channels for the essential life force. The meridians are often described as being similar to a complex system of rivers and streams, with smaller channels branching off from larger ones, yet all interconnected.

The universal life force nourishes each part of the body, including organs and muscles, as it travels through the channels. It is this essential force that heals the body when needed. It also is responsible for regulating and supporting the body and all its systems, while keeping the whole body vitalized.

  • Everything in the world consists of energy, including people.
