Energy Medicine: What is it?
Energy medicine is both a complement to other approaches to medical care and a complete system for self-care and self-help. It can address physical illness and emotional or mental disorders, and can also promote high-level wellness and peak performance.
Restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed or out of balance may help activate the bodies own healing abilities.
To accomplish this goal, energy medicine utilizes techniques from healing traditions such as acupuncture, yoga, kinesiology, and qi gong. Flow, balance, and harmony can be non-invasively restored and maintained within an energy system by tapping, massaging, pinching, twisting, or connecting specific energy points (acupoints) on the skin; by tracing or swirling the hand over the skin along specific energy pathways; through exercises or postures designed for specific energetic effects; by focused use of the mind to move specific energies; and/or by surrounding an area with healing energies (one person’s energies impacts another’s).
Use energy medicine to activate the bodies natural healing power, resulting in the lessening of physical symptoms such as headaches, digestive issues and pain. Energy medicine may also boost immune system funtionality, release toxins, aid the body in coping with electromagnetic pollution and reduce stress.
By learning simple energy techniques to keep your energies balanced and humming, you can improve your health, sharpen your mind, and increase your joy and vitality.
