Where does true wellness start? For thousands of years, traditional healers have been able to detect and correct imbalances at the energetic level in order to heal our physical ailments. Today, these traditions are expanding the medical understanding of our subtle anatomy and its role in our overall well-being. With Energy Healing, integrative physician Ann Marie Chiasson offers a complete guidebook of easy-to-use energy practices to enhance your health and vitality. Drawing from the material she teaches at Dr. Andrew Weil's Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, Dr. Chiasson explores:
  • Our subtle anatomy—understanding the chakras, meridians, and the key principles of energy healing
  • Self-diagnosis techniques for detecting the movement of energy in our bodies—even if you've never sensed energy before
  • Practices for daily self-care and specific techniques to address energy blocks often seen in common illnesses and health issues
  • Why our energy wanes as we age, and how we can replenish our vitality from sources in the world around us
  • Your body as your teacher—insights for adapting and developing your own energy healing techniques
In creating this book Dr. Chiasson has selected the methods she has found to be most accessible, effective, and beneficial in the long-term—informed by the latest research, healing traditions from around the world, and her own practice. With Energy Healing, she presents an indispensible guide for understanding the energetic dimension of your well-being and essential tools to help you take charge of your own health.
 
“This book is an excellent guide for anyone interested in exploring energy as a means of maintaining healthy, dynamic living.”?

“Dr. Ann Marie Chiasson does the impossible: she demystifies energy medicine without eradicating the mystery. Using her own personal stories as well as those of the patients she has cared for, she makes visible the unifying principles shared by systems as diverse as the chakras, qi, and the matrix. In so doing, she puts centuries of wisdom at our fingertips. If you want to learn energy medicine, this is the book to read.”?

"It is my sincere desire that this simple and elegant practice of the Five Warrior Syllables, which is based on the highest teachings of the Tibetan Bön Buddhist tradition of which I am a lineage holder, will benefit many beings in the West. Please receive it with my blessing, and bring it into your life. Let it support you to become kind and strong and clear and awake."—Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche

One of the world's oldest unbroken spiritual traditions is the Bön Buddhist tradition of Tibet. This wisdom path has survived, thanks to the efforts of a handful of dedicated lamas such as Bön lineage holder Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche. Now, with Tibetan Sound Healing, you can connect to the ancient sacred sounds of the Bön practice—and through them, activate the healing potential of your natural mind.

The Bön healing tradition invokes the Five Warrior Syllables—"seed" sounds that bring us to the essential nature of mind and release the boundless creativity and positive qualities that are fundamental to it. Through the medicine of sound, you can clear obstacles in your body, your energy and emotions, and the subtle sacred dimensions of your being. In this integrated book-and-CD learning program, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche gives you the tools to access wisdom and compassion and use the vibration of sacred sound to cultivate the healing power within your body's subtle channels.

The spiritual heritage of the Bön is rich with methods to guide all beings on the path to liberation. With Tibetan Sound Healing, you are invited to learn from a master of this ancient lineage—and discover the power of sacred sound to purify your body, connect with your inherent perfection and completeness, and awaken spiritual virtue.

What if one of the most effective tools you have to restore your health is not surgery or medications, but your own hands? Incredibly, your hands can heal you -- with the "energy medicine" of Pranic Healing. A powerful system that is rapidly increasing in popularity, Pranic Healing works with your own natural, vital energy -- which is also called prana -- to accelerate your body's innate self-healing ability.

Amazingly easy to learn and apply, Pranic Healing uses a series of powerful but simple methods to generate energy, including non-touch hand movements; energetic hygiene, the practice of keeping your personal energy tank clean and full; breathing; and brief meditations. Using these unique techniques, you can identify, clear, and purify unhealthy, imbalanced energy and replace it with fresh energy that helps your body heal itself from a wide range of physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms and disorders. A self-healing guide for 24 ailments, including physical and sports injuries, chronic arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, hypertension, headaches, backaches, congestion and colds, menstrual cramps, even depression and stress-related disorders, is included.

With step-by-step instructions, line drawings, and numerous real-life medical stories, Your Hands Can Heal You demonstrates and explains a revolutionary program that anyone can use to harness the energy of body, mind, and breath to produce health and facilitate repair. Personally trained by Grand Master Choa Kok Sui, who developed Pranic Healing, the authors, Master Co and Dr. Robins, provide the same detailed guidance in Your Hands Can Heal You as in the popular Pranic Healing workshops.

Additionally, they present, for the first time in any book, the Grandmaster's special modifications to the breathing practices that can dramatically increase your power and energy and rejuvenate and balance your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual body.

This exciting new mind-body heath reference proves that you can heal yourself -- with your own two hands.
