Energy has many names such as Qi, Prana, Life force, etc.  It’s what we are all made from – from our bodies to our food to all of the things we count on to survive.

All traditions believe that when the body’s energy is in balance, healing can occur. Any imbalances therefore, lead to disharmony and disease.

Everything from depression to migraines, from arthritis to cancer starts out as an imbalance in the body’s energetic system. The longer those energies are blocked, scrambled or damaged, the more likely physical, emotional and mental symptoms will manifest. The reverse is also true where once imbalances are detected, corrected and maintained the symptoms can disappear.

Energy Medicine comes in many forms – Acupuncture, EFT, Qi Gong, Reiki, Healing Touch, Applied Kinesiology, Sound Therapy, Eden Energy Medicine plus many more.

Energy needs space to move and all of these methods do just that.

If you have ever taken a yoga or pilates class, used magnets or essential oils or worn jewelry with gemstones, you’ve already practiced energy healing on yourself.

Energy Medicine Practitioners are educated in the different energy systems of the body.  They know how to assess for and correct imbalances, blockages and heal damaged areas by communicating with the energy directly. The most commonly examined energies are the meridians, chakras and the aura.

Meridians carry energy around the body very much like the arteries and veins carry blood. There are 12 main meridians that correspond to certain organs (i.e. lung, stomach, kidney, etc).

Chakras are spinning vortexes of energy with the 7 main chakras running from the base of our spine to the top of our head.  This energy system pulls in things we need and releases what no longer serves us.

Our aura, also called our biofield, is an electromagnetic field of energy that has multiple layers and colors. It protects us from the negative energies from other people, environmental toxins plus much more while also transmitting information about us out into the world.

Energy Medicine works well with traditional medical care as well as being a stand alone in treating and preventing many disorders. It can also be done distantly.

Distance healing is one of the most challenging things to explain about energy work. Being energetic beings that are surrounded by electromagnetic energy fields means that we vibrate at certain frequencies. It also means that we are all individual parts of a much bigger whole of that same electromagnetic energy which flows through everything in our universe.  It’s quite easy to link into another person’s energy and send healing to them because of this oneness. Think about the power of prayer – no contact is made when you pray for someone. Think of plants that grow better when exposed to certain kinds of music. That music is sending out healing frequencies that the plant absorbs and so it then begins to blossom forth more than without that healing vibration.

Think of the very nature of quantum physics that Einstein called “spooky action at a distance” where entangled particles remain connected so that actions performed on one affect the other no matter the distance between them. We are also entangled particles – parts of this great universe. When the practitioner works on the client’s energetic body 1000 miles away from the physical client, that physical client is experiencing what the practitioner is doing because our energies are still connected.
