Energy Medicine

What is Energy Medicine?

Energy Medicine is a method of healing that involves balancing and restoring the body’s natural energies for the purposes of increasing vitality, balancing emotions, and improving health. The techniques trace back to various ancient healing practices such as acupuncture, Ayurveda, yoga, and Qigong, among others. These practices are based on the premise that by promoting balance and flow in the body’s electromagnetic and subtle energies, health and well-being are improved.

According to Energy Medicine principles, many emotional and physical symptoms are caused by energy patterns that have become out of balance. The aim of Energy Medicine techniques is to:

  • Support energetic balance
  • Reduce the impact of things that can cause stress on the body and mind
  • Support greater well-being

The techniques that are used may involve certain postures or movements, and/or light pressure or tracing over certain areas of the skin. These are gentle, well-tolerated techniques that are generally easy to continue at home for people of all ages and abilities.

What Can I Expect from Energy Medicine?

During each session, we bring together Eden Energy Medicine, Reiki, and other energy healing techniques to promote balance and flow in your body’s energy systems. Based on the evaluation of your energy, we use various energy techniques to create new energy patterns that will improve health and well-being.

Energy testing is used as a way of measuring how your energies are flowing through specific areas of the body. It helps to identify the techniques that may be most beneficial to use during an energy session. The energy techniques may include light pressure touching and holding certain points on the body, and/or tracing and circling over certain areas of the body in order to move, balance, and restore the body’s energies.

Self-care is an important part of the work, as it helps to support the new energy patterns that are established during the session. You will be provided with quick and easy self-care tools so you can be motivated to continue the healing process at home.
