Did you know that your body generates an electromagnetic field that interacts with the energetic fields of everything around it?
It may seem crazy to you at first because you can’t see it in the visual field, but the human body really does give off various forms of energy, as does everything else. Einstein proved it. Energy and material are interchangeable.
Here’s an example. Even though you can’t see the electromagnetic field, measurements can be taken using:
- Electroencephalograms (EEGs)
- Electrocardiograms (EKGs)
- Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
You’ve probably heard of EEGs, EKGs, and MRIs. Conventional western medicine uses them to diagnose illness and disease. But there’s so much more that can be done with the energy that surrounds and makes up your body than just using it for diagnostic purposes.
Energy can also be used as medicine to prevent and heal a variety of conditions. So let’s take a deeper dive into energy medicine. It may be just what your preventative medicine plan or treatment plan is missing.
What Is Energy Medicine?
First, we need to explore something we take for granted—how western medicine looks at medicine. Western medicine approaches things from the perspective of biochemistry. So when you think of medicine, you probably think of treating the physical body.
What is Biochemistry?
The Biochemical Society describes it as:
“the branch of science that explores the chemical processes within and related to living organisms. It is a laboratory-based science that brings together biology and chemistry. By using chemical knowledge and techniques, biochemists can understand and solve biological problems.
What is the Focus?
Biochemistry focuses on processes happening at a molecular level. It focuses on what’s happening inside our:
- Studying components like:
It also looks at how cells communicate with each other, for example during growth or fighting illness.”
How Does It Work?
Energy medicine is considered to be a complementary therapy. Energy medicine falls outside of the traditional western category because it is not based on biochemistry.
Instead, energy medicine is based on physics. In its most straightforward definition, physics is the study of energy. Physics drives biology and chemistry, which must behave according to its laws.
According to physics, everything comes from energy. That means that your cells, molecules, and atoms are all made of energy.
And don’t forget that these elements comprise your:
- Nervous system
Types of Energy
Your body also gives off all kinds of energy:
These energies interact with other people’s energies as well as the energy fields that surround them. If the natural flow of energy in your energy field is obstructed, chaotic, or depleted, then your physical body is affected, and you get sick.
Energy Medicine practitioners manipulate the various forms of energy to restore balance in your energetic field—this aids in the healing of your physical body.
Who Practices Energy Medicine?
Energy medicine practitioners are trained therapists who can detect and manipulate the electromagnetic field or aura around the body. Earlier, we said that just because you can’t see the energy field doesn’t mean it’s not there.
The fact is that some people can see more than just the visual field that most of us see. They can see the energy fields too.
What Kinds of Energy Medicine Are There?
Energy medicine is nothing new. It has been practiced for centuries under different names and masters. The vocabulary used may be different, but the underlying principles are the same.
The most well-known energy healing modalities in the US are:
- Therapeutic touch
- Healing touch
Who Can Be Treated With Energy Medicine?
Anyone! Whether you already have symptoms of a condition or aren’t even sick yet, you can benefit from receiving energy medicine treatments.
Physical symptoms represent energy gone wrong in the body. Energy medicine practitioners can rebalance that energy and get your body on the road to recovery.
Energy medicine practitioners can also sense imbalances in your electromagnetic field before they affect your physical body, which means that having regular energy medicine sessions can act as a preventative form of medicine.
What Does a Session Look Like?
An energy medicine session isn’t much different from a massage session or an appointment with your conventional doctor.
When you arrive, your therapist will:
- Assess your energy field
- Determine your imbalances
- Tell you what they found
Then they will ask you to lay down so that they can begin to balance your energy field. While they are rebalancing your energy, you may feel a warm sensation or tingling, or vibration.
Don’t be surprised if you feel so relaxed and comforted that you fall asleep during the treatment! Of course, you may feel a little disoriented afterward, but that is normal.
Take a rest until you feel able to resume your normal activities. Drinking lots of water and taking a break from strenuous activity and heavy exercise for 6-24 hours will allow your energy field and body to incorporate the effects fully.
Ready to Rebalance Your Energy Field?
Energy medicine is a powerful tool! You can use it on its own or in conjunction with other forms of medical and complementary treatments.
One of the great things about energy medicine is that it cannot harm when a trustworthy, trained practitioner performs.
So why not try it? Even if it sounds a little “out there” to you right now, you may be surprised at the results.
