Energy Medicine is a hands-on, gentle and effective practice that combines techniques from holistic disciplines such as acupuncture, kinesiology, and qi gong.
While conventional medicine focuses on the biochemistry of the physical body, Energy Medicine works with the energy fields of the body, which are just as important, and when disorganised can negatively impact health in many ways.
By changing and restoring these impaired energy patterns, we can in turn influence the health of our cells, tissues, and organs, as well as our emotional health and wellbeing.
Energy Medicine uses techniques that can gently and non-invasively restore and maintain the health of the energy system, such as tapping, massaging or connecting specific energy points (acupoints) on the skin; tracing along specific energy pathways; and using exercises or protocols designed to improve energetic patterns.
Energy Medicine empowers the client to take an active part in their healthcare, and while it can be very relaxing, it is not a passive therapy designed to send a client to sleep (although this can definitely happen during the more restorative protocols!). I like to educate my clients so they understand more about their energy patterns, and I always recommend self care exercises to complete between sessions to prolong the benefits and help to create and nurture a lasting relationship with their energy body. While I have now closed my nutritional therapy practice, my background in nutrition and functional medicine gives me an understanding of health on a more biomedical and nutritional level, and when combined with Energy Medicine, these understandings can help bring a considered and balanced approached to restoring optimum health. I am a certified Eden Energy Medicine practitioner, and regularly take part in further training with Prune Harris.
