1. What does Eden Energy Medicine involve?
EEM works at two levels. The first level involves using techniques that address your general well being by promoting the strong flow, harmony and balance of your body’s energy systems as a whole. The second level involves assessing, identifying and working with specific problems within the energy systems that may be contributing to a particular physical or emotional issue you are experiencing. Returning your body’s energy systems to balance and optimal flow supports your overall health, vitality and healing.
2. Can I practise EEM techniques at home?
Absolutely! I can show you a set of energy exercises, known as the Daily Energy Routine, which you can practise at home to strengthen and balance your body’s overall energies. I can also show you techniques that can help you address specific issues – for example, to calm anxiety, to support weight loss, to ease digestive problems, to help with hormonal issues. These techniques are easy to learn, and take very little time, so they can be easily incorporated into everyday life.
3. How long will it take me to feel better with EEM?
The great thing about EEM techniques is that you are likely to feel some effect straight away. After an energy session, you may experience one or more of the following: increased energy, a sense of deep relaxation, a feeling of contentment, elevated mood and greater positivity, a reduction in any symptoms you may be experiencing, including pain.
4. I’m uncomfortable with being touched, can I still benefit from EEM techniques?
You can certainly benefit from learning and practising the Daily Energy Routine for yourself (see Question 2 above). However, many of the EEM techniques I use with clients are likely to involve touch. Touching or holding acupressure points on the body can assist in identifying and shifting imbalances in your energies. During an EEM session, you will always remain fully clothed, with the exception of your shoes (and possibly your socks). I will always explain ahead of time where I will touch, and you can let me know if you are comfortable with it or not. And I will always honour any requests not to touch. Some energy work can be done by placing the hands near rather than on the body. In addition, for some techniques, it may be possible for you to touch a specific point on your body and for me to place my hand on top.
5. I’m receiving treatment from my doctor, is it safe for me to use EEM at the same time?
Yes, absolutely. EEM is a completely safe approach, which can easily be used alongside both allopathic (Western) medicine and other complementary therapies. If you do decide to work with me, it would be helpful if you would inform me of any medical or complementary treatments you are receiving.
6. Is EEM spiritual?
EEM is not a spiritual practice, nor is it associated with any particular belief system. Working with the body’s energies helps us connect with ourselves at a profound level and, for some, this provides a way of accessing their deeper spirituality. However, it is not necessary to be a “spiritual person” to practise or benefit from EEM techniques. Moreover, you don’t have to believe in it for it to work!
