Energy Medicine heals the body by activating its natural healing energies and by restoring energies that have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance. It utilizes techniques from many healing traditions, including acupuncture, yoga, kinesiology, and qi gong. The body’s flow, balance, and harmony are restored non-invasively and maintained within an energy system by tapping, massaging, and connecting specific energy points (acupoints) on the skin; by tracing or swirling the hand over the skin along specific energy pathways; through exercises or postures designed for specific energetic effects; by focused use of the mind to move specific energies; and/or by surrounding an area with healing energies.

Eden Energy Medicine is both a complement to other systems of medical and psychological care and, in itself, is a complete system for self-care and self-help. It can address physical illness and emotional disorders, and it can also promote wellness and peak performance. Eden Energy Medicine was developed by Donna Eden during the course of her 30 years of working directly with clients.
