So whenever you are sick or feel sick, energetic healing techniques such as Reiki and Qigong, can easily redirect a lot energy into your immune system.

Navel Chakra Focus
Sometimes you can get worried emotionally or mentally or you could get irritable. These are indications that your energy is not centered, rather it is scattered around. You could even get fuzzy, basically your energy is dispersed! Your navel chakra can help redirect your energy.
Place your hands right under your navel and take a deep breath into your hands for about 60 seconds. What you want to do is deep belly breathing. You can go further by closing your eyes and visualizing a red ball of light. (Red is significant here because the yantra related to this chakra is red). As you do this, keep imagining that you are pulling your self back and pulling in all the pieces of yourself and consolidating them right in your belly. By the time you are through with this exercise, you would succeed in focusing your energy.
Heart Chakra Focus
Heart chakra focus is extremely helpful whenever you are stressed. You may have a deadline to meet or you have a challenge that is weighing you down. You could even have bottled up feelings, all of these can contribute to suppress your immune system. However, with heart chakra focus, you can get your groove back.
Hold your hands, by crossing them over each other, over your chest and focus your attention there for about 60 seconds. By focusing, you are releasing energy. Each time you breathe out, take your hands away from your chest and imagine that you are exhaling negativity. Each time you breathe in, let your hands remain crossed. You can go further by visualizing a white colored ball, visualize the white ball growing stronger and bigger, and getting rid of negativity as it grows. Afterwards, visualize it coming back to its original size and you relax your body.
Chakras focus can be employed in a lot of ways some of which are explained above. It is important to balance and charge your chakras to strengthen the immune system.
