What is Energy Medicine?
"Energy" is within everything:
You have a "Biofield" - Energy flows through our bodies, swirling and giving us a sense of vitality, a sense of well-being, a sense of being grounded and alive. When you don't feel "you" any longer, then Energy Medicine Techniques like Healing Touch or Reiki can ground you, center you, and you with yourself and the world again.
