The first basic principle of energy medicine is that the infrastructure of the physical body is formed by electromagnetic and subtle energies. If these energies become blocked by toxins, muscular constriction, prolonged stress, or other interferences, the flow of energy is disrupted, causing emotional, physical, or mental distress. The energies must be able to move in the correct patterns and maintain a balance with other energies in order for the body to be healthy and happy. In addition, energy must be able to cross over to different sides of the body, including at the smallest level in the DNA up to the different sides of the brain.
Energy medicine is practiced using techniques like yoga, kinesiology, and acupuncture. These and other methods allow flow, harmony, and balance to be restored non-invasively. The therapist may also trace or swirl the hand over the skin along specific energy pathways to open them up. Certain postures or exercises, like those performed in yoga help achieve specific energetic effects as well. Even the simple act of surrounding yourself with healing energies or focusing the mind to move specific energies can help restore the balance of energy pathways.
The overall goal of energy medicine is to show the body how to heal itself from physical and mental ailments. This means that although a therapist can help facilitate your body in healing itself, the ultimate goal is for you to practice self-healing and then be able to help other self-heal. Energy medicine helps you achieve the emotional, energetic, nutritional, and spiritual environment necessary for the energies in your body to keep you in a state of perfect health.Energy medicine is used by an energy medicine therapist as either a complete system for self-care, or to complement other holistic methods of medical care. Energy medicine employs the idea that energy is the vital moving force in the body that determines its health and happiness. Alternative medicine energy therapies can help address and prevent many different health issues. Here's what you need to know about how energy medicine works.
