What is Energy Medicine
Your body is a self-healing organism continually fighting infections, healing wounds and regenerating cells. This ability can be compromised by energetic imbalances that slow or stop the healing process.
Energy (chi, prana, vital force) is the life force that keeps us alive and flows through us. In Chinese medicine the pathways of energy are called meridians (click the image to enlarge), which is what acupuncture is based on.
As long as the ‘life energy’ is flowing the way it's intended to, all works well. When the flow of energy becomes blocked, for instance by injuries, emotional and environmental stress, then blockages or imbalances can occur. Imbalances can affect all areas of one’s being: mental, physical, emotional and spiritual.
In order to truly heal, we need to identify the cause of the blockage and then direct the body’s neurological or energetic system to release the blockage. The practitioner goes through a list of causes using either computerized sensitivity testing and/or muscle testing to identify where the blockage is occurring. Once it is identified, the practitioner can use a variety of non-invasive techniques to make the necessary corrections.
