The Science of Energy & Healing

“The most subtle body consists of fine channels called nadi along which a number of plexus points or chakras are disposed. A so-called “wind energy” circulates through this system, which is basically inseparable from consciousness, but in its most gross forms manifests as passions like anger and lust. In the unregenerate individual, the nadi are knotted up, so the movement of the wind energy is vitiated.” John Snelling, The Buddhist Handbook.
I have attempted to answer this question from principals that have been tested and proven to work in clinical practice on a large range of health problems
ranging from knee, back and shoulder problems to hearing loss, thyroid and kidney malfunctions, chronic fatigue and depression. While the specific
effects of attitudes and emotions on the energy centres and meridians and their consequent specific effects on the physical body, provide many of the
keys in determining the cause and thereby the cure of illness, there are aspects of the energy system that are generally unknown and associated conditions
which are considered untreatable. Successful cures are termed ‘miracles,’ however, as St Augustine said ‘Miracles are only unknown laws.’
Increasing our knowledge of these unknown laws is enormously useful to health practice, regardless of the modality.
The surgeon had “cured” this by removing parts of two prolapsed discs at L4 and L5. Unfortunately, this also affected the movement of the foot. John was
so overjoyed at being able to stand up straight, that he accepted this loss without a drama, although he tried the usual treatments such as chiropractic,
physio etc without success.
AcuEnergetics® balancing of this area to the edge of the heel, restored the ability to tap his toes and strengthened and balanced the whole leg. His walking was much improved as soon as he got off the treatment table. So why was his problem described as impossible to fix? Because the people who treated him did not understand the nature of the energy system that is the body, and instead, thought in terms of physical levers and pulleys.
They assumed that nerve damage had resulted as a consequence of the operation to the back but more fundamentally, they assumed that:
In his book, Energy Medicine in Therapeutics and Human Performance, (Butterworth Heinemann 2003) James Oschman tells the story of a dancer who trained a paraplegic with a severed spinal cord to crawl using trance dance techniques of breathing, sound and movement that she had learned in Haiti. The process took several years but it is a very good demonstration of a fundamental discrepancy between what we believe and what actually happens in the body.
The development of our understanding of how our bodies actually work is having, and will continue to have, an enormous influence on the future treatment of injury.
