Washing hands after energy healing

Sometimes when you practive energy healing or diagnostics your hands start to accumulate the energy. This can be felt differently but usually it feels like there’s some “noisy signal” on the hands, the palm feels tense and it may even ache. At the same time, you become less receptive to signals coming from other person’s body. So, if you try to feel an ilnessl spot, you might not feel it because the palms are already “noisy”.

Also, when you do energy healing, you manipulate the energy field (aura) of the patient, so you take some of his energy on yourself. You may feel pain in your palm and wrists and may even rise through your hand to the elbow and beyond.

First of all, don’t let the pain rise above the elbows. You don’t want to hurt yourself. If you feel that the pain or similar signal rises up your hand, try to shake it off or “remove” it with your other hand, like wiping it. If nothing helps, go to the bathroom and wash them up to the elbow.

Actually, washing hands after energy healing and diagnostics is a procedure that I met many times on different energy healing courses and in books, so there’s definately an agreement on this between various practitioners. After long work with a patient, some even suggest taking a shower to remove all the energy of another person from yourself.

So, not only for bacterial hygiene but also for the energy cleanness of your aura field, wash your hands up to elblow after energy manipulation with other man’s biofield.





  1. I’ve been going on my very own personal healing journey for the past few months. After my mother passed away, I felt so hurt and empty. Ever since then I’ve been working on personal health and setting goals to feel better. I got a nice picture of my mom before she died, and I framed it and put it in a place where I will see it often – not to dwell on sadness, but to be reminded of the beautiful woman that raised me. I journal a lot. And I read and watch inspiring stories. I’ve also been doing some research and looking into energy healing classes in hopes of replacing some of my negative energy and depression with hope and energy.

  2. I now realize that it is imperative to wash my hands right after finding the pain in a person. I’ve been gliding my hands about 3 inches over a persons clothes for many years. (I don’t do that every day or even once a month. I do that whenever someone asks me to.)
    I feel the heat from another’s pain/blackness in the body. Since this ability has always been natural ,like brushing my teeth in the morning, I’ve never given the strange pains a second thought .
    Now , I am giving a second and third consideration; that the energy that’s connected me to others could also be the same energy that could cause illness. After 1 hand surgery and enduring sporatic unexplainable severe pain in both hands;this article makes a great deal of sense to me.
    thank you, Jackie

    • You are completely right. I’m practicing a sort of healing touch, although I am a psychiatrist and psychotherapist myself(certainly not with the same patients)This is a very old practice of a Christian orthodox monks which is, unfortunately unknown largely yet. It is called Issichastic transcendence, but the energy is all the same as in other cultures.
      By applying the energy to patients, we are substituting “bad energies” in their own aura and physics, harmonizing it, and certainly taking some of the “bad” energy with us.
      A running water is the best neutralizing method. Anyway, as much our skin is clean as much we are getting photons and energy that we direct towards painful and needed parts of a client.

      • Perhaps I’ve absorbed too much negative energy? Perhaps I have rare blood disorder because of the negative energy?

    • I’ve learned that Jackie Chakouian, who wrote article above, has been correct in finding the area of sickness 100% of the time. I find that amazing. Is she a reiki healer? I would hope so.
