Donna Eden, energy medicine pioneer
Energy medicine is not “medicine” in the traditional sense. There are no pills to take or invasive procedures to undergo. Energy medicine focuses on the entire body and its energy systems. The form of energy medicine I work with is the approach developed by Donna Eden. Able to see and feel energy since birth, Donna was able to figure out how to work with her body’s energy systems in order to heal herself from a number of illnesses (including multiple sclerosis). She then went on to develop her knowledge and experience into a comprehensive approach to health care, Eden Energy Medicine (EEM). After running a successful energy medicine practice for many years, Donna then developed the EEM certification training programme, which is now being taught in several countries around the world.
Energy medicine is based on the fundamental premise that energy is unlimited and universal − permeating everything and everyone in existence. Within this vast field of energy, we all have our own unique energy systems that channel the life force through our bodies. This life force energy is known as chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine and prana in the Hindu tradition. Energy medicine is a dynamic form of health and self-care, which can address both physical and emotional issues. It also promotes wellness and can help prevent illness. Energy medicine works by activating the body’s natural healing energies to restore balance. It clears weaknesses, disturbances or blockages in the energy systems, enabling us to enjoy good health, mental clarity, emotional balance and feelings of peace and joy.
Eden Energy Medicine involves exercises, postures and gentle movements of the hands over or above the body along specific energy pathways in order to improve energy flow. It also involves the holding, pressing, tapping, massaging etc. of specific energy balancing points (acupressure points) on the skin. Eden Energy Medicine provides tools that anyone can learn to enhance their physical and mental health and their overall well being.
