According to a quote from Donna Eden, author of “Energy Medicine,”
“Energy Medicine awakens energies that bring vitality, joy, and enthusiasm to your life — and greater health to your body, mind, and spirit! Balancing your energies balances your chemistry and hormones, helps you feel better, and helps you think better. And it empowers you to adapt and even flourish in the 21st century.”
Energy Medicine Is both an art and a science. It is working with, as a practitioner, or teaching people to work with the subtle energies of the body. Subtle energies are the energies of the body that cannot yet be measured. These subtle energies include Qi (or Chi), which is vital “life force” energy that flows through the meridians of the body. There are 12 main channels of energy or meridians in the human body.
When Qi is not flowing freely through these meridians, the body becomes imbalanced. This can manifest as illness or life problems.
Energy Medicine is concerned with balancing the subtle energies, the life force of the body. This can be done through any number of modalities such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), chakra balancing, acupuncture, homeopathy, qi gong, meditation, hypnosis, Reiki, Law of Attraction and more.
Chakras are the seven vortexes of energy located around the spine from the tailbone to the crown of the head. Chakra healing itself can utilize number of modalities including Thai Yoga Therapy, meditation, visualization, breath work, affirmations and EFT.
When the body’s energies are in balance and flowing freely, the chakras are open and functioning properly, then people are empowered to live happier, healthier lives full of energy and vitality.
In the coming posts, we will explore different Energy Medicine modalities of healing.
