This brief and simplified discernment is to complement the following essay https://www.collective-evolution.com/2020/04/16/a-distance-reiki-energy-healing-session-no-talking-with-dr-natalie-leigh-dyer:
Energy healing (direct and subtle) is about body-mind and subtle body-mind (i.e. the mind belongs to the subtle body rather than the physical body) therapy healing. And which is about energy balance and flow through physical and subtle body-mind rather than just physical body. The most obvious indication that mind or subtle body-mind is involved is through non-local applications or phenomena. And therefore, can enhance state of mind, metabolism. And therefore, the immune system. The practice is also subtle ways or through correlation of causation to validate the existence of the subtle body-mind as had suggested in diverse ways in past discernments. It can also be complemented by related energy flow and balance practices such as acupuncture and herbal medicine.
Again, the practices are meaningful and practical for physical and subtle body-mind energy balance and flow. And well being state of mind rather than as cure for diseases that require technology and active medicine. However, they are complementary. In other words, can be applied to better the healing or just for balancing or enhancing energy balance and flow. And therefore, lead to wellness state of mind or subtle body-mind.
The main difference between active medicine and energy and subtle energy healing is active medicine has to go through the physical body processes and mechanisms (i.e. while alive in the known physical world, the physical body is intertwined and entangled with the subtle body-mind. And vice versa). While energy healing taps into nature's spectra-field. And therefore, both physical and subtle body-mind causation. And which is why non-locality or remote functions are possible.
