Everything is made up of energy, including humans. This means that everything is a vibration, and the world around us is comprised of shifting vibrating patterns (energy). Each one of us is a complex energetic system, and we exist amidst environments that vibrate with many energetic frequencies. For millennia, healing traditions around the world have emphasized the importance of subtle energy systems that flow through and around living organisms, affecting health and vitality. Balancing and strengthening these systems can assist the body, mind and spirit to heal and to stay well. Energy healing, also called energy medicine or energy therapy, is a branch of alternative medicine where the energy healer channels positive, “healing” energy into the client for the purpose of rebalancing the energy within the client’s body and mind. This can be done with touch (“hands-on”) or without (“hands-off). This type of therapy can even be done with the healer and client being at separate locations, through way of applications such as Skype.
In energy healing, we directly treat the energy in a person’s body and aura. This, in turn, affects the whole person – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. We look for the energetic reasons for a person’s symptoms and treat these underlying causes. Dr. Erin Olivio, of Oprah.com, writes that, “Therapists who work with this type of energy claim that they can see it with their own eyes or that they can sense it with their hands or bodies. The field of energy medicine involving putative energy fields is based on the fundamental premise that all physical objects (bodies) and psychological processes (thoughts, emotions, beliefs and attitudes) are expressions of energy. Therefore, all bodies are believed to be infused with a “subtle” energy or life force. This life force is known by a variety of terms corresponding to different traditions. In traditional Chinese medicine it is called qi (pronounced CHEE), in the Judeo-Christian tradition it is called spirit, and in Ayurvedic medicine it is represented in the doshas.”
“Conventional medicine, at its foundation, focuses on the biochemistry of cells, tissue, and organs. Energy medicine (or energy healing), at its foundation, focuses on the energy fields of the body that organize and control the growth and repair of cells, tissues, and organs. Changing impaired energy patterns may be the most efficient, least invasive way to improve the vitality of organs, cells, and psyche.” – David Feinstein, Ph.D.
The subtle energy (chi) that flows through your body is as important to your health and well-being as the more traditionally recognized bodily functions. Often when these energies become weak, disturbed or out of balance, we experience physical and emotional symptoms. In order to relieve these symptoms, the energy that flows through your body must be restored. Dr. Diane has been trained in energy healing, also called energy medicine, from the leader in this field, Donna Eden. According to Donna Eden, “Energy is your body’s magic! It is your life force. You keep it healthy and it keeps you healthy. If you are sick or sad, shifting your energies feels good. When you care for these invisible energies, it makes your heart sing and your cells happy!”.
“Energy Medicine brings you vitality when you are drained, health when you are ill, and joy when you are down.” – Donna Eden
