Energy is not this new age or mystical thing!
Our body consist of energy and magnetism. You might know of energy in the meridians under the name of Chi. Or know energy as electrical currents in the neural pathways, between cells and atoms. The Heartmath Institute in California has shown, that we all radiate magnetism out from the heart and this can be measured. That with loving feelings such as gratitude, love and compassion this magnetism radiate even further out from a person – increasing the effect of a touch to a receiver from a caring giver.
Energy is vibrations and frequencies just like soundwaves. Just like with the use of sound, energy work can open up subconscious memory in the body. There is a lot of theories about what body energy and energy work is, but no solid scientific evidence yet – only plausible theories at the moment but not enough to conclude anything for sure. Though, there are recent scientific studies that have measured and showed energy and energy exchange in body sessions.
In the Gaia Method energy is used as a soft way of inviting the body to remember, to come alive and to speak its story. It is done in two ways. Through direct energized focused touch or from a body-distance focusing energy to specific areas of the body. “Energy Focusing” is a way of pin-pointing and penetrating energy to specific areas using conscious focused awareness and intention.
As a client you might experience feeling the energy in a physical way, as a current inside your body, a tingling, as heat or cold, like water flowing. It can feel like melting of tissue inside of you. Hard tissue/muscles becoming soft like butter. Your body might respond and move involuntarily as a result to cell memory getting activated. Or you can experience it more as emotions and memories surfacing to release or be embraced. When the blocked or slow-moving energy in the body gets activated it can activate old frozen and forgotten memories, both on a physical, emotional and cognitive level – it can activate the “playing out” of old responses you were unable to perform in the past to a specific situation. A memory of a desired response the body-memory still holds even years after.
The adding of energy work to The Gaia Method can leave your body very rejuvenated after a session.
