Intervening earlier is exactly the goal of vibrational or energy medicine which seeks to determine imbalances in the body’s electromagnetic and subtle energy fields. Then it attempts to correct these imbalances before they lead to chemical imbalances and structural defects. There are many current flows throughout the body. Our cells, nervous system and internal organs all generate electrical currents and the heart alone produces an astonishing 1.5 watts of power day in and day out. The electromagnetic field generated by these currents extends beyond the skin and can be measured by sensitive instruments such as the Superconducting Quantum Interference Device. It can also be depicted by Kirlian photography and it can be felt and visualized by many healers.
Traditional Chinese medicine describes a subtle energy flow (Qi) through 12 channels in the body called meridians which are associated with our internal organs. If the energy flow through the meridians is blocked disease will follow. Blockages can be cleared by needle stimulation (acupuncture) or finger pressure (acupressure) on so called acupuncture points (acupoints) which are located on the meridians.
Acupoints play a very important role in vibrational medicine as does the principle of biofeedback. Biofeedback is a method for learning how to control normally unconscious bodily functions such as breathing, muscle tension, blood pressure, and heart rate through watching bioelectronic feedback of the body’s reactions and then consciously modifying them in the desired direction. Biofeedback commonly utilizes measurements and displays of skin conductivity, finger temperature, muscle tension (firing rate of muscle fibers) or brain waves to monitor the body’s reactions. These measurements and displays constitute the basis for most of the diagnostic tools used in vibrational medicine.
