What is Energy Medicine?

We are all made of energy. In fact, everything in the world is made of energy, which can be simply defined as information that vibrates.

Energy Medicine refers to a broad range of therapies that all have one thing in common: they see people as networks of complex energy fields that support and nourish each individual’s physical, emotional, mental and spiritual self. All of these systems are tightly integrated.

Energy Medicine positively affects those energetic systems that may be out of balance due to stress, inherited behavioral patterns, or illness. It aims to restore and re-balance the subtle energy fields to achieve a higher level of functioning on all levels.
