Overview
Where does true wellness start? For thousands of years, traditional healers have been able to detect and correct imbalances at the energetic level in order to heal our physical ailments. Today, these traditions are expanding the medical understanding of our subtle anatomy and its role in our overall well-being. With Energy Healing, integrative physician Ann Marie Chiasson offers a complete guidebook of easy-to-use energy practices to enhance your health and vitality. Drawing from the material she teaches at Dr. Andrew Weil's Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Chiasson explores:
  • Our subtle anatomy--understanding the chakras, meridians, and the key principles of energy healing
  • Self-diagnosis techniques for detecting the movement of energy in our bodies--even if you've never sensed energy before
  • Practices for daily self-care and specific techniques to address energy blocks often seen in common illnesses and health issues
  • Why our energy wanes as we age, and how we can replenish our vitality from sources in the world around us
  • Your body as your teacher--insights for adapting and developing your own energy healing techniques
In creating this book Dr. Chiasson has selected the methods she has found to be most accessible, effective, and beneficial in the long-term--informed by the latest research, healing traditions from around the world, and her own practice. With Energy Healing, she presents an indispensible guide for understanding the energetic dimension of your well-being and essential tools to help you take charge of your own health.

"This book is an excellent guide for anyone interested in exploring energy as a means of maintaining healthy, dynamic living."?
