WHAT IS ENERGY MEDICINE?
Energy Medicine combines concepts and procedures from ancient Eastern healing traditions with a contemporary scientific understanding of health, wellness, and healing. It can be used both as a complementary practice to allopathic (western) medicine and as a health support system in its own right. It is at the cutting edge of both the clinical and scientific understanding of the power of the mind-body connection and how to better support health and healing, and it reaches into the very heart of being human.
Allopathic (Western) medicine focuses primarily on disease, chemical processes, and separate parts of the body. Its primary tools are drugs and surgery. Energy Medicine focuses on health and wellness and the energetic communications and processes that support the body's chemistry and healing potential. Its primary tools are the client's own energies, the practitioner's healing energies, and ways of assessing how to utilize both for health and healing.
"Energy Medicine is simply working with the body’s electromagnetic and more subtle energies to promote health and well-being. If the flow is blocked or otherwise disturbed, the body doesn’t function as well. In this state, we don’t feel as well physically, psychologically or spiritually, and the mind doesn’t work as well."
Energy medicine emphasizes self-healing and active support for the healthy flow of one's own energies. Even when used in a clinical setting, energy medicine educates and empowers the client by teaching tools that cultivate and maintain healthy energy habits and vibrant health.
Energy medicine recognizes energy as a vital, living, moving force. EM is both a complement to other approaches to medical and psychological care and a complete system for self-care and self-help. It can address physical illness and emotional or mental disorders, and it can also promote optimal wellness and peak performance.
The basics of EM are simple but very powerful. Energy Medicine's fundamental techniques regulate, organize and strengthen a person's energetic foundation. Energy Medicine is non-invasive, cannot cause harm, and empowers people to participate in promoting their own health and supporting their own healing. Energy Medicine embodies profound insights into the body's energy system while incorporating powerful interventions with outcomes can be tracked and evaluated.
In Energy Medicine, energy is the medicine, and energy is also the patient. EM allows you to heal the body by activating its natural energies; and by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance. Both electromagnetic energies and more subtle energies form the dynamic infrastructure of the physical body and are the most powerful tools for healing available.
