Energy Medicine has a profound, positive impact on reducing chronic physical pain as well as mental and emotional distress. It can also reduce symptoms of extreme states, like psychosis. Athletes use it to improve performance.
This brief one-hour presentation will give you:
- A practical definition of energy medicine and energy psychology
- The basic underlying principles of energy psychology
- A survey of practices in energy psychology
- Important advice in choosing a practitioner
- Contacts for reputable, professional organizations
- Practices used by athletes to successfully enhance performance
- What research tells us about the effectiveness of Energy Psychology
"Conventional medicine, at its foundation, focuses on the biochemistry of cells, tissue, and organs. Energy Medicine, at its foundation, focuses on the energy fields of the body that organize and control the growth and repair of cells, tissue, and organs. Changing impaired energy patterns may be the most efficient, least invasive way to improve the vitality of organs, cells, and psyche." - David Feinstein, Ph.D.
