What is Energy Medicine?
Energy Medicine refers to a broad range of therapies that all have one thing in common. They all consider that the human being consists of a physical body capable of thoughts and emotions, but also has an energetic system that supports and nourishes the physical, emotional and mental, with all of these systems being tightly integrated.
The integration between our emotions and our physical body is obvious to anyone who has gone through a period of great stress. By using emotion altering techniques such as meditation and visualization, a person can actually impact the physical body, triggering its ability to auto-heal or self-heal, an ability often referred to as the ‘placebo effect’. What is less commonly understood is that there is an energetic component to this mix and that both an individual’s emotions and physical body can be directly affected via energetic intervention.
This life force is known in traditional Chinese medicine as qi (pronounced CHEE), in the Judeo-Christian tradition it is called spirit, and in Ayurvedic medicine it is represented in the doshas.
