Is Long-Distance Healing Effective?

By Dina Joy Muchnick, Chinese Energetic Medicine Therapist

When people ask me to describe what I do as a Chinese Energetic Medicine (CEM) Therapist, I’ve often playfully said that it can be seen as a middle point between working with the acupuncture meridians, meditation, healing movement, and (for all you fellow Marvel nerds out there) Doctor Strange. That last part feels especially true when I get to do long-distance work with someone. I’d love to share a bit about how it works, and what got me into this incredible healing modality. 

When I was younger, I constantly struggled with a series of chronic health conditions, as well as being either overly reactive or almost completely unaffected by many standard medications. My struggle with Crohn’s Disease and overall weakness/mobility issues became so hard to live with that I began studying alternative healing modalities, desperate to find something that could help. If you’ve lived with chronic pain or a chronic illness, then you probably understand what it’s like to hit that breaking point, where you just want the pain to stop. You don’t care how, you just want your life and your body back. 

I went on a journey spanning several years and several countries, trying all sorts of alternative healing practices. I was determined to find something that worked, not knowing that it was the beginning of a path that would become a life calling.

The first thing that helped me was Chinese Medicine: using herbs and redirecting qi in my body with acupuncture and qigong. I was so amazed by its effectiveness that I started studying it at a local school in New York, and later went to school for a Doctorate in Chinese Energetic Medicine. 

The deeper I went into this healing modality, the more I realized that this non-invasive practice wasn’t just for increasing overall wellness, but could be used in incredibly precise, specific ways to help our bodies heal when we have chronic and acute health conditions, injuries, and trauma. It can even help make other modalities’ treatments more effective, such as helping with organ transplants, supporting purging during detoxes, enhancing trauma processing practices, and even as a powerful tool in complementary cancer care. 

What amazed me the most was that this work could be done long-distance, and can be supported even more with specific healing movements that people can do at home to increase and extend the effectiveness of the long-distance session. I use it regularly for clients, friends, and for myself, and have been amazed at what a difference it makes. 

How Does Distance Healing Work?

Long-distance healing has been an essential part of Chinese Energetic Medicine (CEM), also known as Medical Qigong, for thousands of years, often reserved for the most skillful and energetically sensitive practitioners, and was an essential part of the wellness practices of the ancient emperors’ courts. Today, science is finally catching up with this ancient wisdom to show how distance healing works through the scientific discovery of quantum entanglement.

Quantum entanglement is a phenomenon (researched by scientists such as Bohr, Schrodinger, Backster, and Einstein, to name just a few) where two or more particles become intrinsically linked, regardless of the distance between them. Quantum entanglement is a fascinating way of showing that every single particle in our universe is connected and that the energy found all around us can be used in energetic healing, even over great distances. Backster, in particular, discovered that directed thought and intention can even affect inanimate objects. 

In Chinese Energetic Medicine, we have a concept called “applied meditation.” This is when the practitioner builds skill and energy through their practices and meditations, to the point where they become effective in moving and transmitting qi (life force energy) in their own bodies, and can then apply these same skills for moving qi in others’ bodies in specific, therapeutic ways. This can be done in person, as well as long-distance, as long as the practitioner has the ability to connect with the person they are working with, which activates the quantum entanglement between them. 

The Importance of Safety in Distance Healing

Long-distance healing isn’t just about sending energy to someone. There are specific “energetic hygiene” practices that a CEM practitioner does at the beginning and end of each session to ensure that while working on someone remotely, the space in which the healing takes place is kept clean, safe, and nurturing for the person they are supporting and that the pathway between them is fully disconnected at the end of each session. 

In addition, a skilled practitioner will have trained for years on specific protocols that they apply based on a person’s constitution, health conditions, age, lab results, goals, and emotional history in order to effectively move someone’s qi to purge, tonify, and regulate it, much like an advanced needle-free version of acupuncture. Simply emitting qi without understanding anatomy or the specific conditions they are working with can lead to creating imbalances in the body, much like taking too high a dose of vitamins or supplements.  

The Benefits of Long-Distance CEM/Medical Qigong Healing

Here are just a few of the many benefits Chinese Energetic Medicine has to offer:

●   Pain management – CEM is known to reduce pain by promoting the natural release of endorphins, the body’s natural painkillers. It can also increase the flow of qi and blood to the affected area, which can speed up the healing process.

●   Stress Reduction and Emotional Balance – CEM practice incorporates deep breathing, mindfulness, and meditation, which help to activate the parasympathetic nervous system, responsible for relaxation and emotional equilibrium. Regular practice of qigong can reduce stress levels, calm the mind, and promote a sense of inner peace. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, grief, fearfulness, anger, and trauma.

●  Improved immune system – studies have shown that qigong can enhance immune function by increasing the production of white blood cells, improving lymphatic circulation, and reducing inflammation.

●  Enhance athletic performance – medical qigong can improve athletic performance by improving circulation, flexibility, and endurance, and promoting mental focus and concentration. One of my teachers, Dr. Holder, is a professional strength coach and uses CEM to increase his athletes’ performance in the field and the weight room.

●  Management of chronic diseases – Chinese Energetic Medicine is known to support people with chronic diseases such as diabetes, arthritis, asthma, and hypertension by improving overall health and supporting the decrease in frequency and severity of symptoms.

●  Support during grief, loss, and hardship – these practices focus deeply on healing and seeking balance emotionally while helping the body to rebuild. They can be especially beneficial for bringing extra support during hard times, nourishing the body and emotions physically, energetically, and spiritually. In fact, I recently read a study on how qigong is effective in reducing depression by activating the parasympathetic nervous system. In addition to this, CEM also has specific meditations designed to help process and release emotional pain and trauma. 

●  Cultivating Mind-Body Awareness – CEM emphasizes the connection between the mind and body, fostering greater self-awareness and mindfulness. By consciously directing qi through specific movements and intentions, practitioners develop a deeper understanding of their physical and emotional states. This heightened awareness enables individuals to recognize and address emotional blockages, leading to emotional release and healing.

●  Energy Harmonization and Emotional Resilience – CEM practices facilitate the harmonization and balancing of energy within the body. When the energy channels are unobstructed and qi flows freely, emotional blockages and stagnant energy can be released. This process can help individuals build emotional resilience, enhance emotional intelligence, and promote a greater sense of well-being. According to this study, qigong may be effective in reducing depressive symptoms, stress, anxiety, and mood disturbances.

●  Other Physical Benefits – While I could go on all day about all the things you can use CEM for, this study shows how it may improve bone density, cardiopulmonary health, arthritis, fibromyalgia, tension headaches, and other medical conditions.
