Bernadette Doran, The Power of Energy Therapies

What are energy therapies?

They are subtle but extremely powerful, non-invasive approaches that stimulate your body’s own energy systems to help bring you naturally, gently and easily into balance.

We now know that the body is not a physical machine but actually a very dynamic energy system. Because quantum physicists have developed ways of measuring energy fields within and around the human body, we now have an exciting, new understanding about the fundamental relationship between our energy system and our health.

The concept of how to achieve personal wellness is changing dramatically. An exciting range of research-based energy-based therapies has emerged, and they are being enthusiastically accepted because of their proven results. For example, one energy therapy called Reiki is now used in more than 70 percent of American hospitals.

The power of energy therapies can help you relax, revitalize and reach new levels of physical, mental, emotional and spiritual balance. A session typically lasts an hour, and therapies can be done hands on as well as distant treatments with equal effectiveness.
