After experiencing the results of energy healing first-hand, Nelson’s Ruth Beck was struck by its potential to support the body’s natural ability to find health and balance.
Wanting to better understand how her body worked, the economist and organizational consultant first explored the alternative healing modality to help with severe menopausal symptoms, and enjoyed significant results in just a few months. During breast cancer treatments several years later, daily energy techniques helped minimize the effects of chemotherapy.
“Energy healing is a great complement to medical care and an effective tool for your health in its own right,” Beck reflects.
With its roots in various traditional healing approaches, energy medicine draws these practices together in a single effective modality. After 25 years of practice, founder Donna Eden used a practical and empirical approach to catalogue not only her methods, but also the results, with the goal of passing the knowledge on to a new generation.
After studying with Eden and earning her certification in energy medicine in 2013, Beck is sharing its benefits with clients in Nelson through her Vibrant World Energy. “I’ve always wanted to pursue this as a career and I realized I kept putting it off, so I thought if not now, when?” she says.
What is energy medicine and how does it work?
Understanding that energy is at the basis of all holistic healing, energy medicine moves your body’s energies in specific ways to improve health and wellbeing.
Simple, safe and natural, energy medicine gets to the root cause of what’s ailing you. “With an understanding of the body’s energy anatomy, we have precise effective tools to address different imbalances to support your health and wellbeing, something that’s increasingly important as we age,” Beck says.
Great for stress and anxiety, chronic conditions, digestion and metabolism, sleep and more, energy healing techniques such as acupressure, stretching, holding postures or receiving healing touch direct your body’s natural healing capacity to what you need most. “We work with the body’s nine energy systems in classes and workshops, and in private sessions where your energies are assessed and balanced while you relax,” she explains. “Either way, you are in charge: you are supported to achieve your health goals.”
The stress solution
While the human stress response is designed to help us mobilize against a perceived threat, in today’s world many people experience repeated stress. Our bodies get flooded with stress hormones, making it harder to switch off the stress response. The result is anxiety, fatigue, issues with metabolism, digestion, acid reflux, sleep, autoimmune illness, hormone imbalance, inflammation or other chronic ailments.
“Energy medicine works directly with your fight or flight response to break the stress cycle and regain your health – calming your system and resetting your body to help you build new healthy habits.”
The practicality of these techniques and solutions suits Beck’s economist background. “Your energy is a free and available resource to you. Why not make the most of it?” she asks. “I think many people underestimate the value of energy medicine because it’s unfamiliar to them. When something is undervalued, it’s possible you’ll have an unexpectedly good outcome – as I did when I first tried it. You have nothing to lose and lots to gain.”
