“Humans are made out of energy and sustained by energy. Our bodies are ever changing dynamic fields of energy, not static physical structures. They are a hologram in which every part contains information about the whole.”
— Christiane Northrup, M.D.
Conventional Western medicine, at its foundation, focuses on the biochemistry of the physical body: cells, tissues, and organs. Energy medicine’s foundation focuses on the energy fields of the physical and “energy body” within and around each of us.
The energy body consists of different energy systems and fields such as the meridian and trigger point system used in acupuncture, the chakra system used in Ayurveda, and the aura field, otherwise known as ‘our personal space.’ Each system or field has patterns of energy flowing in continuous motion.
Both the energy body and physical body are in a constant state of vibration as both are a form of energy. For vibrant health of both the energy and physical bodies, the systems within each must possess the following qualities:
Have movement and space to continue to move. Energies may become blocked due to toxins, muscular or other constrictions, prolonged stress, or interference from other energies, trapped emotions or stuck/blocked energy.
Move in specific patterns. The energy body must move in harmony with the physical structures and functions that they support. “Flow follows function.”
Maintain a balance of all energies. Energies may lose their natural balance due to prolonged stress or other conditions that keep the body in survival mode. Energy medicine can change impaired energy flow and patterns which complements and improves the vitality of the physical body.
Energy medicine works in harmony with Western medicine by balancing the body’s energy systems before and after medical procedures. In advance of a procedure, it can be used to relax the body and invigorate the immune system, thus adding to the procedure’s success; post-procedure energy work can minimize side effects and enhance the recovery and healing process.
How do you know if your energy is blocked? The language and communication of your energy body are feelings and sensations. Physical discomfort or pain in specific areas can be a sign of blocked energy; when energy is flowing freely, one might experience lightness or feel energized.
Before Western medicine, humans depended upon their “healer” (doctor) who used combinations of herbs, teas, essential oils, prayers, and energy medicine to prevent, maintain and regain health and balance. Fortunately, support of these traditional modalities is entering the realm of mainstream health care once again.
“In the medicine of the future, as I envision it, working with the patient’s energy field will be the first intervention,” adds Dr. Northrup. “Surgery will be a last resort; drugs will be a last resort. They will still have their place, but shifting the energy patterns that caused the disease will be the first line of treatment, and before that, teaching people how to keep their energies in healthy patterns will be as much a part of physical hygiene as flossing or exercise.”
