How can Energy Balancing help you?
What is Energy?
The human body is made up of matter (muscles, organs, cells, etc.) and energy (electrical activity, heat, ATP, etc.). Western medicine mainly focuses on assessing and fixing the body’s matter. While Eastern medicine focuses on assessing and fixing the body’s energy. And more specifically, forms of body energy that we are not familiar with in the West called chakras, (acupuncture) channels or meridians, the aura, and others. These energies are often grouped together and called subtle energies. In modern times (after 1950) most Eastern medicine energy based healthcare systems have also added Western matter based methods. Treating the body’s matter and energy creates a very wholistic approach to health. However, in the USA, the only Eastern energy medicine making major in roads into our healthcare system so far is Acupuncture.
“The cell is a machine driven by energy. It can thus be approached by studying matter, or studying energy.” – Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Laureate in Medicine
How does Energy affect Health?
Through my four years of studying Chinese Medicine, a key Eastern philosophy became clear – Energy comes before Matter. So a symptom, illness, or problem will appear energetically in the body before it manifests physically. To be healthy energy must flow freely. If energy gets blocked, stuck, or imbalanced then eventually the body’s matter/physical structures will be affected. In ancient times, physicians who could treat patients energetically before physical symptoms appeared were considered ‘Superior’ and more skilled than those physicians who could only treat symptoms after they appeared physically.
Through my previous study of engineering and physics (I am also a Mechanical Engineer) I was already familiar with a Western relationship between matter and energy from Einstein’s famous equation: E = mc2. This equation states that Energy (E) is equal to Matter (m) if matter is multiplied by a very large scientific constant (c squared). Or, in other words, Energy can be turned into Matter. Einstein explained mathematically what ancient cultures had known and been using for healing for centuries.
What does Energy feel like?
If you have participated in Yoga, Meditation, Tai Qi, Massage, or Acupuncture you have moved your body’s subtle energies. And during these activities you may have felt a unique sensation that some people describe as a buzzing or a vibration. Just like the name states the feeling of energy is ‘subtle’ and therefore hard to describe. But it is possible to learn how to feel energy and work with it. During a treatment I will try to help you recognize your own subtle energy.
“In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.” – Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Laureate in Medicine
How can Energy Balancing help You?
Help you get healthy – If you already have physical, emotional, or even spiritual issues that you have tried to resolve with Western (physical) medicine but you are unsatisfied with the results – then a problem with your body’s energy may be the root cause. Energy Balancing treats the body’s energy systems by removing any energetic blockages. Perhaps the missing component to you getting back to full health is a problem in one of your body’s energy systems.
Help you stay healthy – Since energy comes before matter if you keep your body’s energy systems healthy (ie. balanced and flowing freely) then you should also be able to stay more balanced and healthy – physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Energy Balancing seeks to remove energetic issues before they manifest into physical issues.
Note: Energy Balancing is fully compatible with all other forms of healing. So it is recommended that you continue all your current therapies and add Energy Balancing as well.
How is Energy Balancing different from Acupuncture?
Energy Balancing is more comprehensive than acupuncture and less invasive (no needles!).
Acupuncture seeks to remove blockages and create balance in energy lines on your body called Meridians or Channels. This is an excellent system of healing – but it works on only one of the subtle energies in your body.
Main Subtle Energy Systems in the Body:
– Energy lines on the body known as Meridians or Channels
– Energy circles on the body known as Chakras
– External energetic layers around the body known as the Aura
– Energetic rhythms of the body referred to as Biorhythms
Energy Balancing works with all of these Subtle Energy Systems in the body. If Acupuncture didn’t work for you, maybe your issue was not in the energy lines on your body – but in one of these other energy areas of your body.
Also, if the thought of Acupuncture needles keeps you from trying acupuncture then Energy Balancing is for you – no needles are used.
