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 in the energy of the body before it appears physically. What does this mean? To be healthy energy must flow freely through the body. If energy gets blocked, stuck, or imbalanced then eventually the body’s matter — its physical structures, will be affected.

In ancient times, physicians who could treat a patient’s energy before physical symptoms appeared were considered ‘Superior’ and more skilled than those physicians who could only treat symptoms after they appeared physically.

“In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy.”

  – Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, Nobel Laureate in Medicine

What is Energy?

The human body is made up of physical matter – things like muscles, organs, bones, cells, etc. Western medicine mainly focuses on assessing and fixing the body’s physical matter. While Eastern medicine focuses on assessing and fixing the body’s energy. Energy systems in the body are called chakras, acupuncture channels, biorhythms, etc.  These forms of energy systems are often grouped together and called ‘subtle energies’.  In modern times (after 1950) most Eastern medicine energy based healthcare systems have also added Western physical matter based methods.  Treating the body’s physical matter and the body’s energy at the same time creates a very wholistic approach to health. However, in the USA, the only Eastern energy medicine making major inroads into our healthcare system is a part of Chinese Medicine called Acupuncture.

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 this energy and work with it. During a treatment I will try to help you recognize your own subtle energy.

How can Energy Medicine help You?

Help you get healthy – Energy Medicine can help heal any problem or illness the body has;  pain anywhere in the body, anxiety, muscle stiffness, recovering from a car accident, and digestive issues are just a few examples.  If you have physical, emotional, or even spiritual issues that you have tried to resolve with Western (physical) medicine or counseling, but you are unsatisfied with the results – then a problem with your body’s energy may be the root cause. Energy Medicine treats the body’s energy systems by gently removing any energy blockages, restoring the flow of energy, and balancing the energy flow across the body.  Once your energy is balanced the body, mind, and spirit will be more integrated and as a result you will feel better and your physical body will heal better.

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 Medicine seeks to remove energy issues before they manifest into physical issues – keeping you healthy.

How is Energy Medicine different from Acupuncture?

Energy Medicine is more comprehensive than acupuncture and less invasive (no needles!).

Acupuncture seeks to remove blockages and create balance in energy lines in your body called Channels or Meridians. This is an excellent system of healing – but it works on only one of the subtle energy systems in your body.

Main Subtle Energy Systems in the Body:

  1. Energy lines in the body known as Channels or Meridians
  2. Energy circles in the body known as Chakras
  3. Energy layers around the body known as the Aura
  4. Energy rhythms of the body known as Biorhythms

The forms of Energy Medicine we work with at Silver Mountain Health can heal 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 in 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 Silver Mountain Health is the place for you – no needles are used.
