Energy Medicine is a term used loosely to encompass many different forms of energy therapies that can help restore balance within an individual’s energy system. Some common forms used widely for thousands of years are acupuncture, yoga, Reiki and meditation. Energy healing has been used for relaxation and calming, with surgery and accidents. It has become well-known to speed recovery time. Many hospitals and clinics are using integrative/holistic health programs including Energy Healing with their conventional therapies, treatments and medicines to enhance and complement treatment options. In Minnesota, Abbott Northwestern, Mayo and the University of Minnesota hospitals all have Energy Therapies offered, while China and Japan developed a medical system based upon correcting or balancing energy levels within the body.
