The Biofield (Human Energy Field): Foundation for Energy Medicine

Energy is everything. Everything in the universe is in motion, even a rock at an atomic and subatomic level. Science is increasingly showing that human beings are comprised of an energy system that is highly integrated with the physical body, emotions, and the spiritual aspect of individuals. Energy healing is a practice that recognizes that energy is a vital, living, moving force, which is instrumental in determining health and well-being. The primary function of energy healing is to change the frequency of the body's energetic fields, channels, and centers to improve health and enhance healing.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe the foundations of energy medicine, including the biofield (human energy field), the auric layers, and the chakras.

Music and Sound as Energy Medicine

In an age where people increasingly turn to holistic methods of healing, music therapy and sound healing have entered mainstream health care and can be used successfully with people of all ages and disabilities.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe the principles, interventions, therapeutic uses, and physiological and psychological responses of music therapy and sound healing.

Meditation for Health and Energy

Meditation is a mind-body practice with many methods and variations that are all grounded in the silence and stillness of present-moment awareness. The regular practice of meditation not only calms and helps focus the mind, it is also an effective practice for increased energy. Evidence of meditation's health effects has been well documented. The practice offers improvement in the symptoms of various disease conditions, and the experience of a deeper spiritual connection.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe the effects of meditation on the brain, health conditions, and energy, including its psychological and physiological effects.

Energy Medicine Therapies: Therapeutic Touch, Healing Touch, Reiki, Reflexology, and Craniosacral Therapy

Essentials of Qigong

Increased range of motion, increased stamina, increased strength, improved balance, and coordination are enhanced by the practice of qigong.

The outcome of this course is for the learner to describe the practice and health benefits of qigong.

Acupuncture as Energy Medicine

The ancient Chinese healing practice of acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to treat many ailments, especially pain.

This course explores the history of acupuncture, the theories involved in its practice (including yin and yang, qi, the meridian system, and causes of disharmony), the types and benefits of acupuncture, as well as possible complications and contraindications of the therapy and training issues.
