Breakthroughs in Energy Psychology: A New Way to Heal the Body and Mind


Dr. Gebhardt: Bless you for bringing your expertise, training and experience into this forum to advocate open-mindedness. And, not surprisingly you expressed beautifully the value of the blending of the ancient techniques from the East with the technologies & research of the West.

As a Reiki Master, I have been using “energy” healing techniques for almost 20 years. And, I know that the elusive concept of “energy” as something that promotes healing is a hard concept for our minds that were trained to believe only what we can test successfully in double-blind studies that yield data as proof. I liked the certainty of the scientific method in my masters program yrs. ago, because it was so definite.

Even now, I’m not discounting the value of that way of learning & teaching. However, after I learned that there was a lot more to life than what my 5 senses could detect–like the elusive, intangible, non-measurable aspects of life–well, I was hooked! The proof was in the pain & stress that was alleviated by the hands-on healing of Reiki.

Reiki, like other forms of energy-work, can’t be sensed in the usual way that we’re used to, but we can detect its results. The bottom line is that there is much to learn from “conventional”/Western medicine AND from Eastern healing techniques, many of which have ancient roots & centuries of success at healing & facilitating healing.
