Certificate in Energy Medicine

(10 contact hours) There is increasing scientific evidence that human beings are comprised of a biofield, an energetic system that is highly integrated with the physical body, emotions, and the spiritual aspect of individuals. Because of this evidence, medical and health care professionals are increasingly incorporating methods of energy healing with modern health care methods. In this certificate, you'll explore the fundamentals of energy medicine.

As a foundation for your understanding of energy medicine, you'll examine the scientific evidence of the biofield and explore Indian healing traditions regarding the chakras (the energy centers in the body). With this foundation in place, you'll go on to discover a variety of healing practices that focus on treating the biofield. You'll see how music and sound can be used therapeutically, and explore the benefits of the mind-body practice of meditation for promoting present-moment awareness.

The certificate also examines various gentle hand techniques used to balance the biofield, including Therapeutic Touch®, Healing Touch, Reiki, reflexology, and craniosacral therapy. Finally, you'll learn about traditional Chinese practices such as qigong, a holistic system of self-healing with a focus on posture and movement, breathing techniques, and meditation, and acupuncture.
