IN ENERGY MEDICINE, ENERGY IS THE MEDICINE, AND ENERGY IS THE PATIENT – DONNA EDEN
As Dr. Mehmet Oz, Chief of Cardiology at Columbia University’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, predicted on Oprah, “The next big frontier in medicine is Energy Medicine.” And guess what – that frontier is here!
Energy has many names such as qi (Chinese), prana (Ayurvedic), life force (Reiki), etc. It’s what we are all made from – from our bodies to our food to all of the things we count on to survive. All traditions believe that when the body’s energy is in balance healing can occur. Any imbalances therefore, lead to disease and disharmony. Everything from depression to migraines, from arthritis to cancer starts out as an imbalance in the body’s energetic system. The longer those energies are blocked, scrambled or damaged in some way, the more likely physical, emotional and mental symptoms will manifest. And so the reverse is also true where once imbalances are detected, corrected and maintained the symptoms can disappear.
Energy Medicine comes in many forms – Acupuncture, EFT, Qi Gong, Reiki, Healing Touch, Applied Kinesiology, Eden Energy Medicine, Sound or Vibration Therapy plus many more. If you have ever taken a yoga or pilates class, used magnets or essential oils or worn jewelry with gemstones on it you’ve already practiced energy healing on yourself. Energy needs space to move and it also knows what it needs and doesn’t need to heal.
Eden Energy Medicine Practitioners are educated in the 9 different energy systems of the body. They know how to correct imbalances, blockages and heal damaged areas by communicating with the energy directly to find out what it needs. Energy Medicine works well with traditional medical care as well as being a stand alone in treating and preventing many disorders.

it Have to do With Me?’

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENCES BETWEEN REIKI AND ENERGY MEDICINE
Although both modalities provide relaxation and healing using energy, they are quite different. With Reiki the practitioner is a conduit between the client and the Universal Life Force energy that is being channelled into the client. The client rests quietly and receives Reiki. With Energy Medicine, the practitioner works with the energies within and around the individual client. The client plays an active role both in sessions, as their energies are being evaluated, balanced and maintained, and at home. Both Reiki and Eden Energy Medicine can be done in person and distantly.
In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours, healing was accomplished by moving energy. Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, MD Nobel Laureate in Medicine
