What is Energy Medicine?
The very short answer is that Energy Medicine is an approach to healing and wellness that includes many different approaches that focus on adjusting and re-balancing the personal electro-magnetic energy system in and around a person’s body.
Energy Medicine practitioners use many different techniques to address the energetic charge that can stay with a person causing stressful emotional or psychological pain, physical dis-ease, and more. Many techniques are based on the acupuncture meridian system which has been used for thousands of years by people of many cultures. Other techniques are vibrational and can include the application of remedies, crystals, and other electronic devices. Most Energy Medicine modalities require a highly trained practitioner while others can be self-applied.
For over thirty years I have served clients world-wide using a variety of Energy Therapy modalities. Before completing my second doctorate focusing on Natural Medicine, my practice offered various Energy Medicine interventions to clear the emotional causes of dis-ease of the body, mind, spirit. Now my Functional Medicine practice includes Energy Medicine approaches, energy remedies, nutritional counseling, laser acupuncture, auriculotherapy, genetics coaching, soul realignment, and more.
NET / Neuro Emotional Technique
I was introduced to NET in the early 1990’s and began practicing long before I met EFT , Touch for Health, or Energy Psychology. Practitioners who use Energy Therapy or meridian-based tools to treat the emotional components of physical issues via NET/ Neuro Emotional Technique, share more about why they do it and how they do it in the short videos at the bottom of this page.
In my own practice there are quite a number of ways that I can help my clients to clear stress around a physical disorder and its treatment, lessen emotional and physical pain, and sometimes clear symptoms altogether. Using the intricate connection between mind-body-spirit I can literally test the energy of the body to ascertain the root causes of distress identifying if they are emotional, chemical, nutritional, or structural. I then trace the energy back to its earliest occurrence and then either use meridian pulse points or spinal meridian points to clear the emotional charge that is blocking physical healing. This helps in the Whole Body/ Self healing process!
NET/ Neuro Emotional Technique was developed by Dr. Scott Walker. I am grateful for the years that I have been taught and mentored by Drs. Scott and Deb Walker! NET / http://netmindbody.com
What is EFT or Meridian Tapping?
In EFT originator Gary Craig’s own words: “EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Techniques (sometimes called ‘Tapping’) and, in essence, it is an emotional version of acupuncture, except we don’t use needles. Instead, we stimulate certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips. This has shown repeatedly to reduce the conventional therapy process from months or years down to minutes, hours or a few sessions.”
Soon after I learned how to facilitate NET / Neuro Emotional Technique, I went in search of a tool that I could use on myself without a practitioner and one that was simple enough to teach to my clients. EFT was a God-send and I’ve been using and teaching it ever since! Gary Craig’s Official Site / http://emofree.com
Touch for Health
During the 1980’s I studied with chiropractors, and many of them used Applied or Clinical Kinesiology as their modality of choice. When I went into health practice in the 1990’s I searched for an in-road to learn kinesiology for non-chiropractors. I found Touch for Health and learned much about the energy systems and how they related to the physical body.
That led me to work with Donna Eden, mother of Energy Medicine, who could see energy flow from birth, and then through Touch for Health could talk about and teach what she saw. I highly endorse and utilize many of Donna’s wonderful energy protocols. Touch for Health / https://touchforhealth.us
For over twenty years I have incorporated the tenets of Energy Psychology into my Energy Medicine and Natural Medicine practice.*
I have utilized a broad assortment of modalities working with the electro-magnetics of the body, neural networks of mind and body, and focus on the brain and how it relates to the acupuncture meridian system and microbiomes of the body. More recently I am focusing on the human genome and the individualization that includes genetic “SNP’s” in the DNA which add to personality characteristics, mood aspects, and propensities for dis-ease of body, mind, spirit.
Although energy therapies can nicely assist in keeping the better aspects of each gene SNP (single nucleotide polymorphism) in balance, science is showing that individualized diet and nutritional protocols are called for in the long term to ensure life-long health without chronic disorders and emotional mood swings naturally occurring.

*Since I am not a licensed psychologist I cannot officially call myself an “Energy Psychologist”, however when I presented at the ACEP annual meeting the American Psychological Association granted continuing education credits to their members for attending my session.
