Energy medicine harnesses the potential of electromagnetic, light, and sound interventions to heal your energy body. Most people associate energy medicine with practices like chakra balancing, acupuncture, reiki, qigong, or sound therapies that seek to heal your energy body.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Ayurveda, and shamanic traditions are strikingly different from conventional Western medicine. Western medicine is centered on anatomical and biochemical models. However, the ancient indigenous medical systems focus on healing methods that are based on the body as an energy field. Whether it’s doshas in Ayurveda or qi in TCM, these systems postulate that vital energy controls the processes of our brain and body. Healing is brought about by manipulating the flow of energy at specific energy points and balances the body’s electromagnetic field.
In our modern culture of wellness, ancient energy medicines are gaining followers. More people are trying shamanism or Ayurveda even despite critics who dismiss “crystal-mania” medicine. However, a shift is occurring as scientific researchers are looking into the complex biofield of electromagnetic frequencies and light waves that act as our control center for mental and physical functioning. Even researchers from esteemed organizations like Harvard and NASA are conducting studies into the electrodynamic world we live in.
Furthermore, these studies are looking at how both natural and man-made frequencies change our human cells. Modern and ancient medicine systems may have found some common theoretical ground. The result may be the creation of innovative tools to optimize the human energy body.
Anna Bjurstam, a wellness expert, states, “Indigenous people have been the knowledge-keepers of energy medicine for centuries, but the scientific community is now taking it seriously, so the world will listen. The invisible will become visible, and energy medicine will become as important as wellness itself.”
