What is Energy Medicine?

Energy medicine can be used to treat illness and relieve pain; stop the onset of illness as soon as it begins, stimulate immune function, release stress, improve memory, enhance digestion, relieve headaches, relieve arthritis, neck, shoulder, and low back pain, and cope with electromagnetic pollution. By learning simple energy techniques to keep your energies balanced, you can sharpen your mind, improve your health, and increase your happiness and vigour.

How does it work?

Everything in this world is a form of Energy, objects at rest have stored Energy. In one form or another, water, people, trees, rocks, dogs are all made up of Energy. Energy Medicine focuses on putting the power of health, wellness and healing back in YOUR hands! It has been so powerful it often allows healing when drugs and surgery have failed. By understanding how to work with your own energies, you can:

Ø  enhance your participation in the tasks of life
Ø  re-wire disturbed energy communications
Ø  restore blocked or unbalanced energies that underlie illness and disease
Ø  unlearn habits that lead to illness or disturbed mood or behavior.
Ø  strengthen your resilience
Ø  activate your body's healing wisdom
Ø  improve your vitality and physical well-being

Why should you consider energy medicine?

1. It gets to the root cause

It is a healing process that embraces the mind, body and spirit. While orthodox medicine works to relieve physical symptoms and to treat illness through surgery and pharmaceuticals, energy medicine is concerned with clearing the reasons you got sick in the first place.

2. It acts as an emotional clearing house

A trained healer can spot problems in your energy field long before they manifest as physical problems and can help break up or dissolve the blockages. Energy Medicine offers tools and skills to help cope, reduce risk and eliminate most of the negative effects of stress.

3. It is good preventative medicine.

With its power to release the energetic blockages in your chakras (there are seven main chakras and over 20 minor ones), energy medicine can also ensure that the energy canter’s are moving optimally to maintain your physical, emotional, and spiritual balance. If you’re cruising along in good health, energy medicine can help you stay that way and prevent illness down the road.

4. It facilitates self-healing

It’s more accurate in activating and supporting the body’s own healing mechanism, by releasing the toxic energy of the wounds in your system, energy medicine clears the way for your energy to flow more smoothly and allows your body to self-correct. Energy medicine is hence based on the ability of the body to heal itself, allowing, the body to be in its natural state of well-being.

5. It connects you to Source

Energy medicine is more rapid and less intrusive. It is intertwined with your spiritual health and happiness along with your physical and emotional balance. To be in harmony with all parts of your being, the spiritual component is vitally important.
Practitioners may be found in all of the healing professions, from physicians and chiropractors to nurses and personal trainers to massage therapists and life coaches. However one must be cautious when undergoing energy medicine techniques, ignorance leading to misuse of the technique or sloppiness or arrogance of the technique or using them intentionally to harm another are common problems with many energy medicine techniques. Energy medicine, will soon become the future of medicine.

How Does Psychotherapy Work?

Well, you should probably explore Psychotherapy. It is often referred to as talk therapy. The patient and the psychologist will engage in a dialogue about the problems and how to fix them.When going through a difficult period or under increased stressful conditions, psychotherapy can be very supporting and encouraging.Psychotherapy is usually time-limited and focuses on specific goals you want to accomplish. As psychotherapy continues, the patient will build a trusting, therapeutic relationship with their psychologist.Most psychotherapy tends to focus on problem solving and is goal-oriented. It is short-term and lasts less than a year. Psychotherapy is most successful when the individual enters therapy on their own and has a strong desire to change.
There are many different approaches to psychotherapy. A psychologist’s or therapist’s training; style and personality will determine which one they choose. Some psychologists use one approach with all patients; others are eclectic, and some tailor their approach based on patients’ needs, symptoms and personality

1. Behavior therapy is focused on helping an individual understand how changing their behavior can lead to changes in how they are feeling. The goal is to reinforce desirable behaviors and eliminate unwanted or maladaptive ones. The techniques used in this type of treatment are based on the theories of classical conditioning and operant conditioning.
2. Cognitive therapy is based on the theory that much of how we feel is determined by what we think. It helps you become aware of inaccurate or negative thinking, so you can view challenging situations more clearly and respond to them in a more effective way. Disorders, such as depression, are believed to be the result of faulty thoughts and beliefs. By correcting these inaccurate beliefs, the person’s perception of events and emotional state improve.
3. Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) treatment is a cognitive-behavioral approach that emphasizes the psychosocial aspects of treatment. The theory behind the approach is that some people are prone to react in a more intense and out-of-the-ordinary manner towards certain emotional situations, primarily those found in romantic, family and friend relationships.
4. Interpersonal therapy focuses on the interpersonal relationships. The idea of interpersonal therapy is that depression can be treated by improving the communication patterns and how people relate to others.
5. Psychodynamic therapy, also known as insight-oriented therapy. This approach enables the patient to examine unresolved conflicts and symptoms that arise from past dysfunctional relationships and manifest themselves in the need and desire to abuse substances.

The idea of therapy as an art is a very powerful one. Most patients think that they sign up for psychotherapy and they go in and talk in order to “vent” their feelings or  like they are going to see a counsellor  who will tell them what to do and how to behave. Venting your feelings or “getting it all out” in a safe environment may be helpful. There are over 15 other approaches to psychotherapy, identify a good therapist, be honest in your feelings and make it the first day of your new and improved life..  A good therapist will work with you in the hope that you see better ways to behave, interact, and function and act on those in your own way.
