Although life coaches can be accredited, like through the International Coaching Federation (ICF), it's still an unregulated industry. As a result, the quality of coaches varies significantly; not everyone can be Tony Robbins. If you find someone you like and who gets you results, great! But there's no real guarantee that your personal or life coach will help you achieve your goals, and the cost of someone's services could add unwanted financial stress.
Yes, energy healing is a thing, and more people pay for it than you may realize. Energy healing is a broad term for an alternative medicine sect that focuses on tapping into the body's own energy. It's as generic as it sounds.
One common technique is reiki, in which a healer places his or her palms over your body (sometimes touching you, sometimes not) as a way to transfer energy. Reiki is usually performed while the patient is lying down, which is probably pretty relaxing in its own right, especially in a dark room where soothing music is playing. And since a session can run anywhere from $60 to nearly $300, reiki certainly isn't cheap. Becoming a certified Reiki I practitioner is as easy as signing up for an afternoon class and paying a couple hundred dollars -- the kicker is that some reiki practitioners offer "distance treatments," where you pay for them to perform reiki on you from afar. Yes, for real.
