For thousands of years, our ancestors recognized the healing value of energy.
From Asia to America, traditional medicine focused on our energetic health as the most effective way to prevent illness and increase overall vitality.

For millions of people, over thousands of years, accessing and balancing their vital energy has helped keep disease at bay. However, nowadays, modern medicine practically ignores the healing power of our vital energy.

"Energy Medicine brings vitality when we are tired, health when we are sick and joy when we are down." 
Donna Eden

THE  Energy Medicine is based on the scientifically accepted fact that everything in our Universe is  made up of energy , including the human body. Conventional Medicine, at its base, focuses on the biochemistry of cells, tissues and organs. Energy Medicine, at its core, focuses on the body's energy fields that organize and control the growth and repair of cells, tissues, and organs.


Fortunately, the latest scientific evidence is beginning to prove what our ancestors knew so well: vital energy is powerful. Very powerful!

Medicina Energética Portugal
Effectively, the field of Energy Medicine is helping thousands of people around the world to recover this ancient knowledge,  lighting the way for what is possible to happen, when we know how to direct the energy of our body, mind and emotions.
Energy Medicine puts our health and well-being in our own hands. Daily practices can open up and align different levels of our energy, giving us access to abundant health, deep joy and happiness, as well as greater focus and mental clarity.

Fortunately, we can all tap into the source of this transformative energy!  


Energy Medicine is an integrative approach that expands upon principles and practices of therapeutic approaches as diverse as acupuncture, craniosacral therapy, therapeutic tai chi, yoga and other holistic modalities in order to:

  • decrease suffering, pain and illness;

  • strengthen the feelings of  happiness, joy and satisfaction with life;

  • increase focus and  mental clarity, enhancing productivity;

  • improve balance, harmony and well-being;

  • enhance general health and longevity.


Currently, there are many people who are beginning to realize that their daily physical and psychological imbalances are based on their energy levels . When the flow of energy is blocked  or unbalanced, illness is more likely to develop, life becomes more difficult and everything looks grayer.

When the different energy systems are aligned, reopened and unobstructed , life begins to flow in another way, it becomes easier, more abundant and with renewed meaning .
The good news is that Energy Medicine and all its benefits are not just reserved for doctors, psychologists, gifted therapists or other health professionals.
According to Donna Eden , pioneer of Energy Medicine, we all have the ability to utilize our vital energy to create a fundamental shift in the mind-body relationship that can transform our lives for the better.
Since  child that Donna Eden has  the ability to see the flow of vital energy in the body, from the meridians to the chakras.

After healing himself from a chronic debilitating illness, he decided to start studying ancient energy traditions and saw how each of them addressed  different energy systems, but which ended up communicating  and interact  with each other, forming a unitary pattern that surrounded and penetrated the body.

It was during this critical period that Donna Eden realized that, in our innermost being, we are all therapists .  instinctive because our body and mind naturally seek healing and alignment.  


With the proper knowledge, any of us can move from healing instinctively to healing intentionally, gaining access to a powerful and nearly inexhaustible source of health, vitality, and joy.


In the last 40 years, Donna Eden has taught more than 100,000 people from all over the world , from ordinary people to healthcare professionals, to work with their own energies so that they can create and maintain,  more vibrant and abundant health.
