What is Energy Medicine?
There is a lot of confusion about what energy medicine is. I will begin by telling you what it is not: it is not a religion, it is not voodoo, it is not spiritual manipulation. Energy Medicine is a complimentary tool that can be used with conventional medicine. A responsible practitioner will not diagnose, encourage you to get off your medication or prescribe medication. They may suggest herbs or vitamins or suggest healthier lifestyle choices for you to make so that you can reach your goal of health and vitality. Energy medicine can be found in modalities such as acupressure, acupuncture, homeopathy and yoga. Though new to western societies, it has been around for hundreds of years. The energy medicine that I practice was developed by Dr. Bradley Nelson, a well known chiropractor who wrote the book the Emotion Code. His website can be found at www.healerslibrary.com .
Now I will tell you what Energy Medicine is as defined by David Feinstein, Ph.D:
Conventional medicine, at its foundation, focuses on the biochemistry of cells, tissue, and organs. Energy Medicine, at its foundation, focuses on the energy fields of the body that organize and control the growth and repair of cells, tissue, and organs. Changing impaired energy patterns may be the most efficient, least invasive way to improve the vitality of organs, cells, and psyche."
