What are Subtle Energies?

Subtle energies are energies that vibrate at frequencies too high or too low for the human senses to discern.  Although science has developed instruments that can begin to measure some of these fields, many of them cannot be measured.  Yet, throughout the ages, there have been individuals who could sense these energies, see them, feel them and work with them.  They understood that bringing these imperceptible vibrations into harmony would enhance theirs and other’s well-being.  Perhaps you have heard of some of these energies with words such as “aura,” “biofield,” “meridians,” “chakras,” or “chi” and “life-force.”

What is Energy Medicine?

Energy Medicine is an approach to balancing our subtle energies.  When our energies are in balance, we live life more fully because our vitality is increased, our mental capacities are strengthened and our overall health is optimized.  There are many modalities that fall under the ‘energy medicine’ heading.  Although she has studied several, Sylvia works primarily with two of these: Reiki and Eden Energy Medicine.

What is Eden Energy Medicine?

Eden Energy Medicine was founded by Donna Eden. It involves balancing and restoring the body’s natural energies for the purpose of creating health and wellness.  Practitioners, like Sylvia, work with nine energy systems: the Aura, Meridians, Five Rhythms, Chakras, Celtic Weave, Radiant Circuits, Triple Warmer, Electrics and Grid.  These systems are subtle energy fields and they all interrelate.  When one system is out of balance, the others are affected and one’s natural state of well-being becomes challenged.  This happens on all levels: physical, mental and spiritual.  The goal of Eden Energy Medicine, as with all energy medicine, is to restore energetic balance.  The beauty of Eden Energy Medicine is that it not only restores this balance but, by teaching them simple energy techniques, it empowers individuals to create their own well-being.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is a very gentle hands-on deep relaxation technique that originated during the 1920’s in Japan with Mikao Usui.  It utilizes the inexhaustible life-force energy of the universe and the art of gentle touch to bring calm and peace of mind to the recipient, thus reducing stress, improving quality of life and allowing the natural healing processes of the body to take place.  Reiki is administered by the practitioner gently placing the hands on or just above the body of the recipient.  Reiki is used in hospital and health care centers around the country (and, indeed, the world).

Is Energy Medicine for You?

  • Are you stressed?
  • Do you feel fatigued?
  • Do you feel “out of sorts”?
  • Do you suffer from pain?
  • Do you experience depression?
  • Does your mind feel scrambled?
  • Do you experience headaches?
  • Do you have an auto-immune disease?
  • Are you experiencing hormonal imbalance?
  • Do you have a chronic condition that simply won’t heal?

If you answered yes to any of above, then energy medicine could be for you.


** Energy Medicine uses the term “medicine”, however, it does not imply that Energy Medicine practitioners are practicing medicine.  Energy medicine is not intended as a substitute for qualified medical care, but may be used in conjunction with medical or therapeutic treatment.  An Energy Medicine practitioner does not diagnose, prescribe or treat disease.  Energy Medicine attempts to optimize the body’s overall health and vitality, but it is not intended to take the place of treatment by a licensed medical or mental health professional.
