Energy medicine, energetic medicine and bioenergetics are interchangeable terms that refer to the use of energy to promote healing and health. Much of the information provided in this health blurb is grounded in theory or traditional practices because provability via experimentation is currently lacking.
The use of energy is not new, it’s been used in Eastern medicine for centuries. In the West, energy medicine is starting to gain some traction.
Bioenergetics uses energy to encourage your own body’s inherent inclination to right itself to homeostasis. This natural healing through energy is based on biophysics form of medicine rather than biochemistry, which uses drugs, and structural adjustments, which uses surgery.
Energetic medicine manipulates your own energy fields or uses other sources to affect your energy flow that are believed to have become weak, disturbed or out of balance. And it’s this disordered energy that is either solely or partly detrimentally impacting your health.
Several of the various techniques or treatments utilizing the concept of energy medicine involve:
- Reiki, Qi gong
- physical therapy
- chiropractic adjustment
- use of light, color, sound
- pinching, twisting, tapping
- biofeedback for mind focus
- assorted postures, exercises
Bioenergetics not only addresses your physical, but mental as well.
Energy medicine is touted to treat or used to:
- reduce stress
- relieve headache
- improve memory
- enhance digestion
- improve blood circulation
- stimulate immune function
- stop an illness from worsening
- pain relief ~ arthritis, neck pain, shoulder pain, back pain
The practice of energy medicine is not only limited to poor health. The routine use of bioenergetic techniques to balance your energies improves your overall health and mind resulting in the rise of joy and vitality.
Some may argue that the reason for your being more energetic after using this medicine is merely the placebo effect. Guess you’ll have to be the judge of that.
