You Are Energy
Although the tradition of energetic healing has been used in Eastern cultures for thousands of years, it is quickly gaining recognition in the United States. It makes sense that the bodies energy be utilized in healing, because the primary blocks of our physical form is energetic. We are made up of atoms which have an electrical component in the positive or negative charge of protons and electrons. Since we are made up of trillions of atoms, our mental and physical health is greatly influenced by our energetic responses. Even the most basic bodily functions such heart rate and body temperature is an expression of energy. More complex emotional functions ( i.e. reacting with fight or flight responses when encountering non-threatening environmental stimulus) is also fundamentally an energetic reaction.
The use of energy modalities can be multi-layered and adapted to meet individual needs. At a fundamental level, the process includes activating the emotional responses, thoughts, or memories involved in the “problem” while stimulating or activating the bodies energy systems. The charge, or intensity of the memory, thought, or behavioral reaction can be diminished or changed. Clinical research has shown that energy based therapies can be effective in alleviating the symptoms associated with trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, pain, addiction and weight management.
