WHAT IS ENERGETIC SKINCARE?
IT IS SKINCARE BASED ON THE CONCEPTS OF ENERGY MEDICINES.
First, let’s appreciate the fact that in spite of what we might have been taught in school, the body is not simply matter (solids and fluids) but also energy—vital energy. It is called prana in yoga and Ayurvedic medicine, and Chi in Traditional Chinese Medicine and by practitioners of Asian martial arts. This ancient concept is also a very modern one as it is now demonstrated by Quantum physics. Progressive medical doctors have embraced this approach, judging by the following quotes:
Deepak Chopra, M.D. in Grow Younger Live Longer:
“Your body is a field of energy, information, and intelligence…capable of perpetual healing, renewal and transformation.”
Richard Gerber, M. D. in Vibrational Medicine:
“The physical body is actually a complex network of interwoven energy fields.”
The point is that, as stated by Gerber in the same book:
“If we are being of energy, it follows that we can be affected by energy.”
Therefore, with the right energetic tools and know-how, a practitioner can work on any body and skin problem at the level of matter (skin) like everyone else, but in addition to work at balancing the vital energy flow of the customer. Working on matter and energy simultaneously, better results are achieved.
Energy medicine states that body issues have a root cause in vital energy imbalance, or blockage, of vital energy flow.
With the Phytobiodermie method, a spa practitioner can easily learn how to do balance vital energy for better and faster results. The reason being that the skin is a medium to balance vital energy!
Beauty is Health Made Visible! WHY is it so?
Because of the following two major concepts:
- The body is not simply matter (solids and fluids) but matter and energy — vital energy, a carrier of information and intelligence to all cells of the body.
- The skin is a vital organ with reflexive properties. This is due to the fact that all parts of the body are interconnected by vital energy. Reflex zones provide a telltale sign of what is going on within the body. That is why our body shape and our skin condition reflect the degree of wellness that we enjoy. As a result, indeed, Beauty is health made visible. Reflex zones also provide a way to practice reflexology and to simply balance vital energy in spa treatments.
