Energy medicine recognizes energy as a vital, living, and moving force that determines much about our health and happiness. The body's energies are key to health, vitality, and well-being. Energy medicine is the art and science of working with and teaching people to work with these energies to empower them to live happier, healthier lives. Long recognized by eastern cultures, subtle energy fields are only recently being studied and utilized by western medicine.
Energy Medicine is both a complimentary approach to traditional medical care, and a complete system for self-care and self-help. Healing takes place by activating the body's natural healing energies and by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed or out of balance.
Energy medicine utilizes techniques from a variety of global healing traditions such as:
Flow, balance, and harmony can be non-invasively restored and maintained within an energy system by focused use of the mind to move specific energies; and/or by surrounding an area with healing energies. By working with simple energy techniques to keep you energies balanced and humming, you can improve your health, sharpen your mind, and increase your joy and vitality.
Specifically, Lotus Heart specializes in the following energy traditions:
Reiki is a holistic alternative therapy based on Eastern concepts of energy flow and the chakras (energy centers) in the human body. Reiki was formulated by a Japanese teacher, Mikao Usui, around 1890, based on Vajrayana (Tibetan) Buddhism, but incorporates meditation techniques, beliefs, and symbols that are considerably older. It is distinctive among energy therapies in its emphasis on self-healing, its spiritual principles, and its accreditation of healers through a system of initiation. Reiki practitioners participate in the healing of emotional and spiritual as well as physical pain through the transmission of universal life energy, called "rei-ki" in Japanese. It is believed that ki flows throughout the universe, but that Reiki connects humans in a more direct way to the universal source. Reiki is used for the healing of animals as well as people. As of 2002, a research team at the University of Michigan is studying the effectiveness of Reiki in treating chronic pain in patients with diabetic neuropathy. Various other studies are also underway in the United States and Canada, some examining the efficacy of the therapy in coping with pain and anxiety.
Reiki is a safe, gentle, non-invasive form of hands-on healing. Recipients report their experience of Reiki includes increased energy, reduction of pain, deep relaxation and a general feeling of well-being. Reiki initiation attunes a practitioner to become a channel for the Reiki energy and is a powerful, life-changing experience for physical, mental and spiritual growth.
Although Reiki involves human touch, it is not massage therapy. The patient lies on a table fully clothed except for shoes while the practitioner places her or his hands over the parts of the body and the chakras in sequence. The hands are held palms downward with the fingers and thumbs extended. If the person is in pain or cannot turn over, the practitioner may touch only the affected part(s). Silence or music appropriate for meditation is considered essential to the treatment. Reiki healers practice daily self-healing, in which they place their hands in traditional positions on their own bodies. They may use touch, or distant/non-touch.
Pranic Healing is a comprehensive system of subtle energy healing utilizing “prana” or
energy in balancing, harmonizing and transforming the body's energy processes. “Prana” is
a Sanskrit word that means “vital life force.” This invisible bio-energy
keeps the body alive and healthy. In acupuncture, this subtle energy is called “chi.” It
is also called “Ruah” or the “breath of life” in Hebrew.
It is a simple yet powerful and effective method of energy healing. It is based on the fundamental principle that the body is a “self-repairing” living entity, which possesses the innate ability to heal itself. Pranic Healing also works on the second principle that energy can be projected from one person to another. As a result, the healing process can then be accelerated by increasing the life force or vital energy on the affected part of the physical body.
Pranic Healing was created by a Chinese-Filipino energy master, and former
chemical engineer/businessman, named Choa Kok Sui, who spent years researching
the root teachings of esoteric systems such as yoga, chi kung, Kaballah, Chritianity,
and many others in order to create a simple, practical, and effective energy
Kok Sui conculded that energy healing, at its most basic, consisted of clearing away dirty or diseased energy from the charkra and aura and replenishing it with fresh energy or prana. Given his background as a businessman and engineer Kok Sui set about to test the efficacy of his inquiries by applying a rigorous scienticfic approach to his work. He set up healing clinics across the Philippines to test the effectiveness of different energy healing systems. Ech patient who came in received a specific type of energetic treatment and the results or lack there of were recorded.
These healing clinics continued for nearly 30 years whil Kok Sui constantly tested and refined methods of cleaning out dirty or blocked energy and increasing the supply of healing energy. In 1987 Kok Sui introduced Pranic Healing to the world as a “best of the best” system of very specific instructions and sequences for cleansing and energizing parts of the body to achieve rapid healing.
Pranic Healing is actively used and practiced in over 80 countries and numerous healing centers around the world.
Practitioners realign the whole energy system to help initiate specific biochemical changes to accelerate the body's innate ability to prevent and alleviate a wide spectrum of physical, emotional and psychological ailments.
What makes Pranic Healing unique is that it focuses on cleaning the bio-plasmic body prior to energizing and it prescribes specific sequenses of cleanising and energizing based on the particular ailment that a healer is working with
