What is Energy Medicine?
In layman’s terms Energy Medicine is the practice of moving energy when energy is stuck or vibrating in lower unhealthy frequencies. Some might consider it to be an alternative therapy to traditional western medicine but it is meant to be complimentary by those who practice it.
Acupressure, Acupuncture, Ayurveda, Chakra Balancing, Cranial Sacral Therapy, Holistic Chiropractic, Homeopathy, Kabbalah, Meridian Tapping, EFT (emotional freedom technique), Pranic Breathing, Polarity Therapy, Reiki, Tibetan singing bowls, Resonance Re-patterning are some of the modalities that fall under the label Energy Medicine. There are many more.
I believe pain in the physical body is caused by an imbalance. Imbalance can lead to dis-ease which is nature’s way of sending a message to us that something is out of balance with our emotional, mental or spiritual bodies. Instead of trying to treat (mask) or eliminate the symptoms of imbalance like a weak lower back or a rotated pelvis, energy medicine looks for unconscious patterns of lower frequency energy attitudes or beliefs that cause us to be out of balance in the first place.

“They (healers, intuitives, visionaries and shamans) have been able to see and work with the three systems that link our physical and spiritual energies and interact to form our overall energetic anatomy.
- The channels also called meridians – they spread energy throughout the body
- The centers, the most well-known of which are the chakras – energy receptors or holders
- The fields, one of which is the auric field – outside of our body, these fields listen to the data in our chakras and other energy centers to determine which information to bring from outside to inside of us.“ – Cindi Dale, Author Energetic Boundaries
