Welcome to my website, thank you very much for checking it out! Some of you are looking around may already know about complementary therapies and alternative therapies and some of you may not. Some of you may be wondering what is energy medicine, energy modalities, energy healing, and energy therapy. Well let me break this down for you.
Complementary therapies is different diagnostic and therapeutic modalities used together with conventional medicine (treatment you would get from your physician, hospitals). Complementary Medicine is used in addition to conventional medicine to decrease a patient’s pain/discomfort following surgery, chemo, radiation etc. A few examples of complementary medicine is Healing Touch, Raindrop Therapy, yoga, meditation, aromatherapy, Reflexology, acupuncture, biofeedback, Reiki, Tai Chi, sound therapy and this list goes on.
Alternative therapies refers to modalities that have healing effects similar to conventional medicine but does not have the scientific evidence to back it. Alternative medicine is labelled alternative medicine as it is used in place of conventional medicine. The same examples given for complementary therapies are examples of alternative therapies but are not used with conventional medicine.
So as you can see the biggest difference between complementary and alternative therapy is one is used with conventional medicine and the other is not.
Energy medicine, energy healing, energy modalities and energy therapy are all the same things. It is a collection of “names” used to refer to different complementary and alternative medicines, based on the use of energy. Energy meaning the energy field around your body (can also be called your aura, chi energy, biofield) and your 7 major energy centers known as Chakras. Examples of energy medicine are Healing Touch, Raindrop Therapy, Reiki, Reflexology, Qiqong, Therapeutic Touch, Acupuncture/Acupressure, Shamanic Healing, Intuitive readings and the list goes on.
You may ask why should I use these types of “therapies” and/or “modalities”? These therapies help to get to the root of the cause, they do not just work with one piece of the puzzle they work will all pieces and they help to put the puzzle back together. These therapies work on the client as a whole: mind, body, and soul. They work on you physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually, giving you the best overall “treatment” for your higher self. They help with all different types of ailments and all aspects of life. These therapies are nondenominational, and all you have to have is an open mind!
