What Are Energy Healing Side Effects and Healing Crisis

What happens after an energy healing session? Can you experience side effects during or after an energy healing session?

How can you minimize energy healing side effects or healing crisis?

The simple answer is yes. You can experience side effects during or after any healing modality you choose to use for your mind or body or spirit.

With everything that is happening in the World today, there is a lot of shifts in energy happening and self healing taking place. Many people are powerfully searching for answers and truth to heal physically and emotionally and find more inner peace.

Everything is energy and therefore really any healing can be considered “energy healing” and when you make a shift or change or raise your energy there can be side effects or what’s some call a healing crisis.

You can experience side effects from many forms of healing not exclusive to “energy healing” sessions. Any time your mind/body/spirit is shifting and changing or healing there is old toxic energy or lower levels of energy being released and new energy taking it’s place and creating a healing effect. As the old energy is released it can cause side effects that may be perceived as uncomfortable during the transition period of healing.

You can experience healing side effects (aka: healing crisis, herx reaction, herxeimer reaction, die off, cleansing crisis, etc.) during and after any healing method such as:

~ energy healing
~ intestinal cleanses, colon cleanse
~ spiritual consciousness shifts and spiritual study (upgrading your spiritual “mind”)
~ releasing old negative thoughts and energy patterns and ~ ~ shifting into new positive thought patterns (neuroplasticity) through various methods including law of attraction tools, studying consciousness and spirituality, self healing, energy healing, etc.
~ exercise and weight loss
~ ending addictive behavior
~ emotional healing
~ healing chronic illness or other ill health in the body
and so much more…

These energy healing side effects are normally temporary and can sometimes only last a few moments or sometimes a little longer as your body adjusts to the new energy patterns.

In some cases you may experience the energy healing side effect or energy release during an actual energy healing session and in other cases after the session is complete in the hours and days to follow. Similarly, you can experience this phenomena while shifting and raising consciousness, meditation, studying new material to raise spiritual awareness & consciousness and more.

Interestingly many people don’t realize you can have emotional healing during a physical cleanse such as changing eating habits (healthier eating), weight loss, increasing physical exercise, a colon cleanse and vice versa. Since everything is energy, as the body releases the old built up intestinal sludge that holds old energy patterns, some people experience emotional releases and healing as well and may experience releasing old negative thoughts and shift into a more positive emotional state as a result.

On the contrary, if a person is self healing emotional issues there can be many issues in the body that are resolved as the emotional attachment is released as well and healing reactions can occur physically.

I experienced this many years ago (close to 20 years ago) when I began diving deep into spiritual consciousness work and eventually discovered energy healing. As I began researching and profoundly raising my spiritual consciousness, I not only experienced massive emotional upheaval but also experienced physical side effects or healing crisis that I was not aware of may happen. I sort of jumped in way too fast and full force in my study and in addition to the emotional upheaval, I also began experiencing mild anxiety and trembling as the energy in my body was shifting and raising too and I felt ungrounded.

There are ways to help the process along such as movement in the body through walking, gentle exercise, yoga and so forth to help the body release the energy with less discomfort. And, walking on the earth can also help ground your energy as well especially when doing spiritual growth work. You can do other healthy things that may feel more grounding to you that are physical activities such as spending time with loved ones or animals or pets, making love/sex, creative arts, sports and other physical activities that release energy.

For some meditation may actually heighten the side effects, which it did for me. It was beneficial for me to take a break from certain reading material and meditation for a period while my body adjusted to the new higher vibration and energy patterns that eventually became comfortable and sustainable.

You can also drink plenty of fresh water and consume healthier foods that are higher vibration instead of consuming lower vibration foods filled with chemicals and toxicity.

Sometimes a simple nap or additional rest and sleep can be very beneficial.

Below is a list of some of the side effects you could experience when going through any kind of healing of the mind, body or spirit consciousness.

Energy Healing: Side Effects and Healing Crisis

What happens after an energy healing session? Are there side effects during or after an energy healing session?

When I first began using energy healing many years ago, I was not aware that there could be energy healing side effects (aka: healing crisis, herx reaction, herxeimer reaction, die off, cleansing crisis, etc). They are not normally severe enough to be incapacitating or anything. But, some experience minor side effects during and after energy healing sessions.

In some cases where deep healing is taking place, there may be some minor side effects that are noticed, especially if you are sensitive to noticing things that are different in your body & surroundings.

Some energy healing sessions might leave you feeling a little lethargic, ready for a nap. As energy correction takes place and the negative energy frequencies are being release, the body’s energy system is disrupted and the and the body is realigning into a new energy frequency that is different.

With the method I use, an energetic filter/shield can be placed on the energy correction (healing) code in order to offset some or all of the energy healing crisis, healing reaction or clearing reaction. At the end of a session, I test if it is needed and to what extent (example: 57% filter/shield and by intention add this information to the energy correction code.

As an personal example, during a self session or running a session for someone else (since I act as a surrogate when working with others), I normally experience a shiver, a swirl of energy run up my body out of the top of my head, a yawn, fatigue (especially with an emotionally severe issue), a dizzy feeling for a moment or two, itching on my face or hands that is short lived when releasing something usually of non-physical or emotional nature, usually while releasing a trauma or specific event. In some more extensive deep sessions, I have actually began crying uncontrollably, however, it lasts a few moments as if I am releasing something emotionally painful and then it stops as suddenly as it began. Usually this is only for maybe 10-15 seconds and has only lasted maybe 30 seconds a few times over the years. In a few cases, I have actually felt an emotion such as deep loss/grief during this type of release and then it dissipates just as quickly as well. And, then all of a sudden I feel a tremendous relief and even feel like smiling or laughing. I usually know when the release is complete because I take a deep breath without realizing it intentionally and feel “done”. It’s pretty cool to be able to release stuff in such a quick & beneficial manner.

Side effects are usually minimal and can be viewed as your body’s way of expressing the release of something negative as it begins to heal.

The most common side effects reported to me during and after their energy healing sessions include (not limited to): vivid dreams, dreams of healing or resolution of emotional or physical issue, dreams of healing a specific relationship or past love trauma, the sensation of heat, nausea, dizziness, sleepy, numb, tingling, emotional release and brief anger, laughter and so forth.

Keep in mind, this is just your body’s way of releasing old energy frequencies and patterns in order to find true sustainable healing. Any time you make significant changes in your self healing, there will be side effects no matter what method you choose, even if you only change your diet – it is not harmful – it is possible to experience these symptoms in phases for a few days to a week, or not at all.

Some of the side effects that might be considered “negative” that could show up with energy healing that I am aware of are:

  • Yawning
  • Flatulence
  • Burping
  • Itching
  • Feeling a need to stretch your body
  • Irritable
  • Fatigue

  • Sneezing
  • Mood swings
  • Crying/laughing
  • Dreams
  • Chills/warmth
  • Tingling
  • Sleepy

  • Energetic release

Some of the side effects that could be considered positive associated with energy healing that I am aware of are:

  • Less anxiety, more calm
  • Healing trauma of sexual assault/rape
  • Better sleep
  • Deeper meditation
  • Being more present
  • More energy
  • Rapid release of trauma
  • Lifting depression

  • Better sex/more intimacy/orgasm
  • Weight loss/weight gain

  • Change in physical medical testing results & HRV
  • Better intuition
  • Inner peace
  • Healthier body
  • Less pain
  • Forgiveness
  • Long standing emotional turmoil & heartache healing
  • Inner peace/preparing to die
  • Grief release
  • Less rage/anger
  • Relationship loss/breakup healing
  • Overcoming addictions
  • Healing fear of public (agoraphobia)
  • Symptoms of PTSD healing
  • And, much more

In some cases, you might notice a shift or effect during your energy healing session. In some cases you might notice side effects or shifts in days & weeks following your energy healing session. Normally, the most intense effects are noticed within a day or two at most.

What should I do after an Energy Healing session?

I normally recommend drinking plenty of water to keep the body hydrated & flush out any toxins being released. I also recommend some rest if you are able to after your session. A short nap if time permits is great. Even a short meditation can be beneficial.

If you are in a very toxic state (physically and emotionally) especially at the beginning, your body may feel a little lethargic for a few days after your initial session. You may notice a little emotional upheaval for a day or two as non-physical portion of your healing is being released such as emotions and old patterns. It can last moments or off and on throughout your day. Try to relax, and take a moment to reflect if you can and let it release without judgement. In most cases, you will quickly notice the “clouds being lifted” so to speak. I have found that this normally lessens as work progresses and healing takes place. I always recommend that you honor yourself & intuition and listen to what your body is telling you.

Energy healing/energy medicine (aka: energy correction) can be a tremendous addition to other forms of healing and can enhance the effects of other healing work, holistic or traditional. Some forms of energy medicine, can significantly reduce or completely remove the negative side effects of necessary medications and treatments such as chemo therapy if that is the route you choose for healing.
