What is Energy-Medicine?

"In every culture and in every medical tradition before ours,
healing was accomplished by moving energy."

Albert Szent-György (1960)

In Energy Medicine, energy is the medicine.

While Energy Medicine has existed in various forms for thousands of years in almost every cultures, there is no absolute definition. The answer to the question "What is Energy Medicine?" varies according to the practitioner. The following reflects Okka's understanding.

Energy Medicine is .....

  • a complement to other medical approaches and at the same time a complete system for self-healing
  • one of the oldest, if not the oldest, way to bring comfort or relieve to discomfort
  • the ability of body, mind and spirit to heal itself

  • a powerful healing modality to address:
    physical issues from cancer to lower back pain
    emotional trauma from depression to scars from child or sexual abuse
    - mental blockages

The balance and the harmonious flow of the body's energies are key to health, vitality, and well-being. The various energy systems in the body communicate information to the different parts of the body. Using energy as the medicine, the focus is not to treat symptoms or dis-ease but to balance the energy system by re-aligning the energy-flow, re-activating the body-mind-spirit connection, and eliminating blockages. Symptoms provide clues about where the energy system needs attention.

Our body does not know about competition, it has developed a very sophisticated interrelationship between the physiological, anatomical, psychological, emotional and mental aspects in the body.

Through Energy Medicine...

  • you can participate more fully in your own healing, which means, while it is self-empowering, you can also improve your health, and increase your joy and vitality.

  • and from a skilled practitioner you can learn techniques activating your body's natural healing energies, restoring energies that might have become weak, disturbed, or out of balance.
