- What is energy medicine/subtle energy?
Energy medicine is the third area within complementary and alternative medicine as defined by the National Institutes of Health in the late 1990s.1 Within energy medicine, subtle energy is the flow of energy that is not easily detectable or measurable by traditional standards at this time. Subtle energy is sometimes referred to as life force, chi, chakras, auras, biofields or prana.
- Does everyone experience subtle energy the same?
Subtle energy is different for everyone. Some people are much more sensitive and/or perceptive to subtle energy. Energy healers and energy sensitive people are much more perceptive to subtle energy, but even people who aren’t aware of subtle energy may feel its effect. Subtle energy sessions may take many different modalities from meditation to tapping to yoga. People respond differently to each modality, so some people may find that one modality may be more productive than others to help address energy imbalances.
