The Science of Energy Medicine
In many countries, Energy Medicine is often overlooked as a significant way to enhance health. Meanwhile Chinese Medicine, using many of the same principles and techniques, has been healing people for over 5,000 years!
The good news is that in recent years, hospitals and medical professionals have seen the real benefits of Energy Medicine. An increasing number of institutions and private practitioners are offering Energy Medicine to complement the more traditional forms.
Using the two together, we’ve seen success in:
speeding recovery times
lowering blood pressure
decreasing symptoms from chemotherapy
increasing one’s ability to sleep
prolonging life by increasing cellular longevity
supporting a healthy immune system
and helping to release stored emotions
In addition to these benefits, I’ve personally seen significant results with eliminating lower back pain, sciatica, arthritis, depression, negative thinking, stroke and other medical issues where energy fails to flow properly across the body.
Wondering how is this possible?
First, your body is made up of energy. In fact, it’s this energy that doctors are harnessing when they use technology like an EKG to help diagnose and treat illnesses. A trained energy medicine practitioner takes this further by interacting with the body’s energy to promote healing on a mental, physical, and spiritual level.
Where does energy in our body come from?
The body is made up of over 50 trillion cells. Each cell acts as a transmitter and receiver of information. The membrane that surrounds the cell is constantly monitoring the environment and sending this information back to the nucleus of the cell.
But I want to hear about more science!
The cell nucleus contains our genetic information on 2 DNA strands. Each of these strands contracts and expands over a billion times a second. With each of these contractions and expansions comes a release of a photon of light with your genetic information encoded in it.
This means that every photon has information about who you are as a person physically, and possibly emotionally.
These contractions, expansions and photon releases create waves of energy coming from the body.
While all of this is going on, the brain and heart are also transmitting electromagnetic waves. In fact, the heart’s waves are 10x as strong as brainwaves, significantly adding to your energetic body!
When you remember that, (biologically speaking, our emotions are a result of chemicals released into the body, it’s easy to understand that “heart waves” are composed of energetic molecules created from these emotions.
All of these components make up your energetic “soup.” This is more often referred to as your measurable and detectable electromagnetic energy field, or your aura.
What does the energy healer do to bring this out?
An energy healer transmits Universal Energy / Qi / Chi, creating a very high vibration. This is because a trained energy healer understands and lives by certain Universal principles. It would take several paragraphs to explain these principles, so please just take my word on this one!
When the energy healer interacts with their client the two energy fields merge and together they change. This can be seen with a sophisticated aura machine that reads changes in energy frequencies.
It’s this change in energetic fields that creates a physical change within the client’s body. Often, lower vibrational problems such as pain and dis-ease disappear simply due to the interaction with this higher vibration.
An energy healer has honed their ability to sense energy and information that comes from a body. This coupled with the principles described above allow the energy healer to see and describe patterns of dis-ease to the client.
Ultimately, this leads to a greater mind-body connection. Often this connection allows the client to have a greater awareness of their own energy system, how it interacts with the environment, and how they want to apply this new knowledge to their life purpose.
