Earthing (or Grounding) — in the sense of Energy Healing or Nature Therapy — is the belief and practice that it’s necessary to restore direct contact with Earth to maintain or restore health and happiness.
It’s thought that the Earth’s surface, which has a natural electric charge, radiates and transfers beneficial electrons i.e. energies to the human body, and that close contact with Earth increases the benefits.
Direct contact involves, for instance, removing floors, tiles, carpets, and shoes, walking barefoot indoors and outdoors, and working, sitting, and sleeping on the ground. One can also find Earthing systems for purchase, such as conductive mats, pads, body bands, or patches.
By its practitioners it’s believed that Earthing can reduce, for instance, inflammations, pains, stress, anxiety, depression, arthritis, autoimmune disorders, while promoting blood circulation, vitality, and sleep quality, and stimulating overall well-being.
