What is Energy Medicine?

The type of energy work used at Roots & Wings is a modality that blends various eastern healing traditions learned through Eden Energy Medicine.  This approach incorporates:

Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupressure involving meridians, aura, Five Element Theory, chakras, along with Qi Gong and Yoga.

This ancient system with modern techniques draws upon assessing, connecting and directing intricate energy systems within the body to promote optimal flow and balance.  It is a mind-body approach and helps to create self awareness and empowers the client to be able to work with their own energies using simple exercises.  

Energy Medicine is working with your body’s innate energies and is based on ancient healing principles to help maintain and restore health and vitality.  

The National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health (NCCIH) (formerly National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM)), part of National Institutes of Health, defines ‘Energy Healing Therapy’ as:

‘Energy healing therapy involves the channeling of healing energy through the hands of a practitioner into the client’s body to restore a normal energy balance and, therefore, health. Energy healing therapy has been used to treat a wide variety of ailments and health problems, and is often used in conjunction with other alternative and conventional medical treatments.’

Energy Medicine works to increase overall health and vitality, and it can also help optimize cell, organ and bodily repair. The flow, balance and harmony of the body’s energy systems can be strengthened and maintained with the work of Energy Medicine.  It is "inner work" to resolve or prevent "outer problems," both physical and emotional.  

There is energy in everything.  Einstein defined that scientifically with his famous formula, E=mc2, that all matter is a form of energy.  Our bodies are full of vibrating molecules that can be influenced by the environment around us.  Toxins, stress, constriction in the body can interfere with the proper flow of energy.  Energy pathways can form habits that persist even when the need for the habit has passed.  Our energies can be re-patterened to restore health and vibrance. 

Energy Medicine is based on the principle that our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health are all deeply connected to our body’s energy systems.  These energy systems, sometimes referred to as ‘life force’ or ‘Qi,’ can be blocked, reversed, or out of balance and this can be displayed as physical or emotional symptoms.  By balancing the energy within the body this can restore optimal energy flow to address illness and achieve wellness.  

Balancing client's energy systems can be used for physical or emotional ailments, hormonal issues, pain, chronic issues and for overall well-being.  Once the body is in balance, several self-care techniques can be easily taught to maintain a healthy energy body to promote overall wellness and vitality.  Energy Medicine can be a great complement to other medical approaches or a self-care system.  Energy medicine does not diagnose or treat medical conditions and is not a substitute for evaluation and treatment of medical issues by a qualified health professional.
