n Indilinga African Journal of Indigenous Knowledge Systems - African, Indian and Chinese patterns of energy healing

Volume 6, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1683-0296



This article examines some African, Indian and Chinese patterns of energy healing in order to explicate common forms. All accept, as a given, the existence of a universal energy to which everyone has access. All extol a form of healing energy and some form of conscious breathwork, with relative emphases on ancestors, meditation and movement in African, Indian and Chinese patterns respectively. Illness is viewed as a disruption or stagnation of energy patterns which need continual channeling, mobilisation, balancing and harmonisation for optimal health.
