Energy Medicine – A Complement to Traditional Remedies

Energy medicine falls within the domain of “complementary and alternative medicine.” It is considered to be a complement to medical care as well as a complete system for self-care. Energy healing not only addresses physical illness, but emotional or mental disorders as well.

The U.S. National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine divides energy healing approaches into two general categories. The first type is “Veritable Energy Medicine” which includes light and magnet therapy, collectively referred to as electromagnetic therapy. These therapies rely on known forms of energy. The second type is “Putative Energy Medicine,” regarded as theorized forms of energy, unconfirmed by scientific investigation. Use of the term “energy medicine” has been in use since the 1980s with the founding of the non-profit International Society for the Study of Subtle Energies and Energy Medicine.

Putative energy remedies that utilize techniques such as acupuncture, kinesiology, Therapeutic Touch, yoga, qi gong or Reiki help the individual restore harmony and balance to their mind and body. There are many other effective techniques, less well known, such as Matrix Energetics, The EMF Balancing Technique and The Yuen Method. Along with intercessory prayer, distance healing can also be included. Anyone who has received this type of treatment, and felt better, would probably not care if results had been scientifically proven.

Basically, the goal of any form of energy healing technique is to heal the mind, body or Spirit by activating the individuals own natural healing energies. The physical body can be restored to health in this way by releasing or balancing the energies that are disturbed or weak in some way.

Energy techniques such as I’ve mentioned above, can treat illness and relieve pain, release stress, and basically improve all levels of functioning in the mind and physical body. There seems to be unlimited possibility for transformation when utilizing energy remedies, both as an adjunct to allopathic medicine or on its own.

Approaches to energy medicine vary widely in origin, approach and philosophy. The therapies which rely on known forms of energy such as electromagnetism are termed “veritable” energy medicine. Unfortunately, there are devices on the market making claims for healing with energy that have proven to be fraudulent. Some of these devices have been removed with action from law enforcement. A safer approach to self-care and self-healing would be with therapies considered to be “putative” energy medicine such as Therapeutic Touch or The Yuen Method.

There are many laypersons without any prior knowledge of working with energy engaged in learning these energetic techniques to help themselves and their families. Not everyone wants to be a practitioner, but these simple techniques can help the individual heal and balance themselves for improved health and vitality. To achieve and maintain a greater sense of well-being is a great gift and the goal of energy medicine.
