Energy medicine addresses the electromagnetic field (or energy field) that underlies the organs and physical structure of the body. From this perspective, disease or illness is viewed as an imbalance or block of the body's natural flow. Energy medicine incorporates hands on healing and other techniques to change, stimulate, and/or shift the underlying energy that is associated with the disease process.
This workshop introduces the fundamentals of self-healing with energy medicine for improved vitality as well as the alleviation of chronic illness and pain. Join medical doctor Ann Marie Chiasson for an exploration of the energy field, the basics of energy medicine, and the fundamentals of vitality and energy flow. Learn how to support and heal your body through a variety of techniques based in the chakra system, traditional Chinese medicine, and other healing modalities.
