What is Energy Medicine…
Energy Medicine integrates the energy dimension into human healing. With the discovery of quantum physics, evidence supporting the concept that matter is made up of layers of energy is now being recognized. Energy is the life force that keeps us alive. Albert Einstein proved this with his famous formula, E=mc2, showing us that, “Everything is energy”.
Our bodies have their own energy anatomy of oscillating magnetic fields that pulse, flow and vibrate. Energy is needed for our nervous systems to be able to send signals throughout our body’s and brains making it possible for us to move, think and feel. Our very cells are specialized to conduct electrical currents. These ever-flowing electrical impulse signals create tiny magnetic fields.
Modern medicine is very familiar with the body’s energy fields and uses them both diagnostically and for treatment. We have many technologies that can measure them that include MRI’s (Magnetic Resonance Imagining), Electrocardiograms and many other types of scanning procedures.
The concept of Energy Medicine is that this universal omnipresent energetic vital lifeforce has incredible intelligence. It is the foundation of all the body’s physical systems and directs them to keep us alive and thriving.
Energy healing is built on the fundamental premise that everyone’s thoughts, emotions, beliefs and attitudes are made up of this energy. Candace B. Pert, PhD, author of “Molecules of Emotions” suggests that different emotional states produce a vibratory tone that sends an energetic signal throughout our bodies that create signature patterns. When we are unable to properly channel or metabolize certain emotional impacts, they can become adversely stored in our bodies creating blockages.
Our body’s energy is continually being influenced by outside forces: stress, trauma, illness and toxins. To overcome illness and maintain vibrant health the body needs its energies to move in specific patterns. Physical expression of disease in our bodies is preceded by energetic imbalances in the vibrational frequencies of the subtle energy fields within and surrounding our physical body.
History of Energy Medicine:
For years, indigenous cultures have been positively influencing the body’s health by re-patterning and restoring balance with it’s energy fields. Many ancient Eastern health practises operate using one or more of the energy systems that are capable of manipulating the flow of energy to affect the health of our physical body.
It was first observed by the Chinese healers who identified twelve major meridians, or pathways of energy, in the body. These meridians correspond with the connections and routes of muscles, endocrine glands and the nervous system. There are over 600 points on the body that are directly connected to major organs and bodily systems. Acupuncture has gained the most notoriety in Energy medicine and is widely embraced by doctors and patients now throughout the western world. Neuroimaging studies have now demonstrated that acupuncture calms areas of the brain that register physical discomfort and activates those involved in rest and recuperation. A Doppler ultrasound shows that acupuncture increases blood flow in treated areas, and thermal imaging proves that it can also make inflammation subside.
Chakras are the ancient Indian concept for our body’s primary energy centers and based on their location, are also connected to key endocrine glands and areas of the nervous system that functions throughout the body. In order for there to be a steady flow of energy throughout the body the Chakras must be properly balanced. They have the ability to open and close, allowing for the outward and inward flow of energy. It has been discerned that they tend to close when we experience negativity, sadness and anger.
Donna Eden, one of the original pioneers of Energy Medicine and the creator of the Eden Energy Medicine (EEM) program was born into a family that can visually see the energy anatomy on herself and others. Her innate ability to see the energies are further supported by other Eastern ancient cultures that have similarly charted and developed many holistic therapies that follow similar energy principles and teachings. Such therapies include acupuncture, Chi Gong, Yoga, Reiki, Healing touch and Ayruveda.
In the beginning of her own life’s journey she grew up with debilitating personal health challenges. She had tuberculosis, copious amounts of food allergies and such severe asthma that she couldn’t go outside. At the age of 16 she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis and at the age of 27 she had a heart attack. Her energy became so depleted that she he couldn’t walk. All her organs were breaking down and all her specialists had basically given up on her and told her she was not going to survive. She had no one but herself to turn to and she was determined to overturn their dismal prognosis. She did this by learning to work with and reorganizing her own energies.
Her work merges with the current Kinesiology research and in particular James Oshman’s work that employs kinaesthetic muscle testing to give information on energetic imbalances that may be affecting the body.
Eden Energy Medicine is Donna’s own particular developed holistic therapy that accesses our energy anatomy to help rebalances the body so it can heal itself. She has brilliantly developed simple energy movement techniques and daily exercises that anyone can do to help support their own health.
How Energy Medicine Works:
Energy healing focuses on the life force that flows through all of us. This incredible intelligence works independently of your mind. It’s a holistic practise that taps into the energy field working directly with the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of our being. It addresses health challenges caused by a disturbance in the energy flow.
It can help with acute injuries, chronic health issues and relieve pain. Energy healers help to pull out stagnant and stuck energy, so you feel more expansive and blissful. It eliminates stress and tension that has sunk into our bodies to allow deep relaxation. It helps remove negative emotional and mental thought patterns. It clears issues from your tissues!
Dis-ease in the body often shows us what needs work and what we still need to learn. Energy Medicine helps to wipe the “mud” off of your energy field and rewires your thinking to more positive thoughts allowing you to blossom into who you really are at your core. When the energy flow and energy fields are robust and vibrant, the body remains healthy and balanced.
Clients often seek help with stress, sleep, anxiety, headaches, pain, physical ailments, emotional trauma, hormones, transitions, grief and feeling stuck or scattered.
The Eden method utilizes 9 energetic systems all wrapped up into one highly effective modality. The techniques involve muscle testing, postures, tapping, gentle laying of hands, and stimulating energy acupressure points. It also empowers the client to get in touch with their own ability to heal themselves by learning personalized home-care exercise routines that will promote positive change outside their session.
