Eden energy medicine is a system of complementary healing that uses the non-invasive power of our hands and was devised by an American healer named Donna Eden.
When I first went to one of Donna’s workshops in early 2013 I was blown away and signed up to the Foundations course straight away. The course was so inspiring I studied for another two years to as an Eden Energy Medicine Clinical Practitioner.
Donna worked with the body’s energy systems to heal herself of tuberculosis as a child, to overcome debilitating multiple sclerosis in her 20s and to heal a broken ankle well enough to be able to embark on a world tour only a few days later, and this at the age of 70!
Eden energy medicine uses simple yet profound techniques that work directly with the body’s energy systems to help create health and wellness. Practitioners use their hands and other energy balancing tools such as magnets, crystals and colour gels to systematically address individual health issues. These techniques help to activate the body’s natural healing abilities.
In 2015 I was privileged to become one of the first 75 people in Europe to qualify to practice Eden Energy Medicine.
It combines concepts and procedures from ancient healing traditions with contemporary scientific understanding of health and healing. It can be used both as a complementary practice to conventional medicine and as a health support system in its own right.
Energy medicine works on the understanding that the body’s energy anatomy is as complex and multi-layered as its physical anatomy. A practitioner works with nine primary energy systems including the Five Rhythms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the meridians, the aura and the chakras.
- Chronic pain
- Relieving stress and anxiety
- Strengthening the immune system
- Eliminating or reducing the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Improving digestion
- Relief of allergies
- Managing weight
- Alleviating insomnia
- Enhancing learning skills
- Sharpening the mind
What training has an Eden energy medicine practitioner received?
An Eden energy medicine practitioner has completed at least two years of rigorous, hands-on training and has earned a certification of completion in the Eden energy medicine certification programme.
In addition each practitioner adheres to a strict ethical code and a system of continued professional development.
What should I expect from an Eden energy medicine session?
The first session is usually longer than an hour and can be an hour and 30 minutes as a full client consultation is carried out to get a holistic picture of the health issues.
Practitioners test in a similar way to that used in kinesiology to assess the body’s energy systems. The aim is to also teach simple, effective ways for the system to run in a better way throughout the body so aiding the healing processes.
Do I have to take off my clothes?
No clients are fully clothed during an energy medicine session.
Might I get a negative reaction from a session?
During the session, as energies shift to a more beneficial state, some people may experience the following:
- Intense release of emotions
- A headache
- Flu-like symptoms as the body rids itself of toxins
- Dizziness or fainting.
Practitioners are able to respond with techniques to assist if any of these should happen.
Where does an energy medicine session take place?
I can also visit your home or workplace (there might be an additional charge for fuel depending on distance).
