Energy Medicine is the broad category of alternative techniques for health and wellness, that involve working with the human energy field to bring about an improvement in one’s condition. There are many modalities included, from Reiki and Accupuncture to Chakra balancing and use of sound and crystals. All have in common the cultivation or infusion of life energy, the circulation thereof, and the clearing of blocks to optimum energy function.
“Energy psychology (EP) is a collection of mind-body approaches for understanding and improving human functioning. EP focuses on the relationship between thoughts, emotions, sensations, and behaviors, and known bioenergy systems (such as meridians and the biofield)” -David Feinstein, author of The Promise of Energy Psychology.
