Eden Energy Medicine
What is it?
The term “energy medicine” uses the word “medicine” in the sense that “Laughter is good medicine” and “Exercise is good medicine.” Keeping the body’s energies in an optimal flow and balance is good medicine. The purpose of energy medicine is to enhance well-being at the levels of body, mind, and spirit.
Energy Medicine recognizes energy as a vital, living, moving force that determines much about health and happiness. Energy Medicine is both a complement to other approaches to medical care and a complete system for self-care. It can address physical and emotional issues.
The body’s energies include electrical, electromagnetic, and electrochemical energies involved in every bodily function as well as more subtle energies. These provide both the animating force and the invisible infrastructure of the physical body. In Eden Energy Medicine we work with 9 specific energy systems: Meridians, Chakras, Aura, Radiant Circuits, Triple Warmer, Celtic Weave, five Rhythms, Electrics and Grid.
Energy medicine is the art of working with these energies to maximize one’s own or another’s well-being. To be healthy, our energy needs to be flowing freely. Dr K will assess how your energies are flowing. During an Eden Energy Medicine tracker session we ‘track’ your energies. Dr K will assess your energetic patterns – to learn where they are flowing optimally and where they are sluggish, blocked or ‘irregular.’ She will then work to correct them then retest them to be sure they corrected. She will show you how to maintain the correction with simple exercises that you will be asked to do at home 1 or more times/day.
Dr Kefalos is a certified Advanced Practitioner of Eden Energy Medicine, as taught by Donna Eden. Dr K completed 4 years of training in Eden Energy Medicine. Below is a video of Donna talking about energy medicine.
There are several principals of energy medicine which are the foundational concepts:
-The health of the body reflects the health of its energies. All the energy systems are interconnected.
-Energy wants to move. Energy wants to move in specific patterns, such as crossing in large and small figure 8’s. Each system has characteristic ways of moving that can be tracked, supported and balanced.
-Energy needs space to move. Energies may become blocked or constricted due to prolonged stress, muscle spasm, toxins, interference from other energies (electromagnetic radiation for example). We have a tendency to become tighter and more constricted over time. Energy that is not traveling freely can result in pain, emotional imbalance and physical illness.
-Your energy is affected by other people and your environment.
-Energies adapt to circumstances. Energy can form habits that may not readily change even when these habits are detrimental to good health.
The good news is that energy can be re-patterned!
This is a core tenet of Energy Medicine. Flow, balance and harmony can be non-invasively restored and maintained. We do this by working with specific points on the body, tracing pathways, doing exercises or holding postures designed for specific energetic effects and using our minds to affect energy flow. Just as with physical exercise, one gets best results by doing the recommended exercises regularly. It is helpful to have 3-8 sessions over the course of 3-4 months so we can follow the energetic changes and see what is ‘holding.’
I felt the difference when I began working with my energy and that’s why I want to show you how to feel it too!
Energy tracker sessions are done with the client fully clothed. Most of the session is spent on the treatment table. There will be light touch involved, such as holding specific acupressure points. In summer 2021 I changed my approach to my Eden Energy Medicine sessions. Now, I find imbalances and then teach people how to make the corrections themselves. Most people find this approach very empowering! It also limits the amount of energetic information transferred between us and thus limits the karmic burden which could be accumulated (by me and the client) during a session.
Chakra Balancing – an Eden Energy Medicine approach
Chakras are energy vortexes related to the nervous system of the human body. There are 7 main chakras. Dr K will test to determine how well balanced your chakras are and if they are communicating optimally. She will teach you (and then you can teach your friends or family members) how to do this on each other! This is not covered by insurance.
