Energy medicine or energy healing is the practice of leveraging the body’s own energy systems to improve health and wellness. Many of the principles of energy medicine have been in use for thousands of years but were largely forgotten or ignored in modern times. Recently, however, we have begun to rediscover the many benefits of energy healing practices in improving our health and wellness. In fact, Dr. Mehmet Oz, a well-known and respected surgeon, recently claimed that “the use of energy in healing will be the biggest frontier in medicine over the next decade.”
Energy Medicine heals the body by activating its natural healing energies. You also heal the body by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance. It 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.
