What is Grounding?
Updated: Jan 31, 2022
What is grounding? At Heather Schepman Energy Healing, I am often asked this question. Perhaps Healthline states it best: Grounding, also called earthing, is a therapeutic technique that involves doing activities that “ground” or electrically reconnect you to the earth
People have reported improvement for conditions such as:
Chronic fatigue. In the studyTrusted Source on massage therapists, many reported a decrease in their fatigue levels after four weeks of treatment with grounding mats.
Chronic pain. The studyTrusted Source on grounding for exercise recovery found that those who used grounding patches reported lower pain levels.
Anxiety and depression. In one small studyTrusted Source, it was shown that even 1 hour of grounding therapy can significantly improve mood.
Sleep disorders. The massage therapists also experienced an improvement in sleep length and reduce sleep disturbances with grounding therapy.
Cardiovascular disease. Results of one treatment studyTrusted Source found that long-term self-administered grounding therapy helped to reduce blood pressure levels in participants with hypertension.
