Energy Medicine

The People Shine MIND-BODY-SPIRIT Holistic Fair offers a variety of energy medicine approaches for self-care, wellness and healing opportunities.Taking care of our body in the proper way is a process. The way that we nourish and maintain our bodies can be an emotional process as much as it can be a behavioral action. It is important to realize this. For when we delve deeper into ourselves we create the possibility for real and lasting transformation, and not simply white knuckling a behavioral change. As we become more and more aware, breaking further and further out of denial we come to not only realize how important this is for our personal health, we realize how important it is for the world.

Energy Medicine recognizes energy as a vital, living, moving force that determines much about health and happiness. In Energy Medicine, energy is the medicine, and energy is also the patient. Energy medicine is both a complement to other approaches to medical care and a complete system for self-care and self-help. It can address physical illness and emotional or mental disorders, and can also promote high-level wellness and peak performance. The body experiences opportunities for healing by activating its own natural healing energies; wholeness and thereby wellness is accomplished by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance.

To accomplish this goal, energy medicine utilizes techniques from healing traditions such as acupuncture, accupressure, yoga, kinesiology, reiki, healing touch, qi gong and many, many more. Flow, balance, and harmony can be non-invasively restored and maintained within an energy system by tapping, massaging or connecting specific energy points (acupoints) on the skin; by tracing or swirling the hand over the skin along specific energy pathways; through exercises or postures designed for specific energetic effects; by focused use of the mind to move specific energies; and/or by surrounding an area with healing energies (one person’s energies impacts another’s). This also includes the use of sound, vibration, color, and light.

Energy medicine can be a part of a treatment plan for illness and pain managment; stop the onset of illness as soon as it begins, stimulate immune function, relieve headaches, release stress, improve memory, enhance digestion, relieve arthritis, neck, shoulder, and low back pain, and cope with electromagnetic pollution.

By learning simple energy techniques to keep your energies balanced and humming, you can improve your health, sharpen your mind, and increase joy and vitality. The most powerful component of energy medicine is that many of the modalities and techniquies can be performed on the self, by the self. This places much more responsibility for our own health and well-being into our own hands, however, the trade-off is that it gives us the ability to listen more closely to our body, and therefore 'catch" ourselves before full-blown disease manifests into the physical.
