Publisher's Summary

The first comprehensive look at the groundbreaking field of energy medicine and how it can be used to diagnose and treat illness, from one of the world’s foremost practitioners of traditional Chinese medicine.

Today, more of us than ever are discovering the curative powers of energy medicine. Scientific studies continue to confirm its validity, and medical doctors are regularly prescribing treatments such as acupuncture to their patients. But even for those of us who have benefited from such treatments, the question remains: What exactly is energy medicine, and how does it work?

Acupuncturist and traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) scholar Jill Blakeway has been treating patients for more than 25 years. For Jill, the term energy medicine refers to the wide range of healing modalities used to diagnose and treat illness by manipulating the energy - the vital life force referred to as qi in TCM - that pulses through the cells of our bodies. But even this seasoned practitioner admits she doesn’t truly understand how some of her patients are healed under her care and retains a healthy skepticism about her own abilities as well as those of her peers. 

In Energy Medicine, Jill invites us on her global journey to better understand, apply, and explain this powerful healing force. Moving from her own clinic to the halls of academia, she talks to top healers, researchers, and practitioners - from the Stanford and Princeton professors researching the physics behind energy medicine and healing; to a Chinese Qigong master who manifests healing herbs directly from her palm; to a team of skeptical scientists who use “hands-on” healing to repeatedly cure mammary cancer in mice. She also tells the story of how she discovered energy medicine and became one of the most sought-after healers in the world.

Lively, entertaining, and informative, told in Jill’s funny, relatable, and wholly grounded voice, Energy Medicine bridges the gap between science and spirituality and offers a persuasive, evidence-based case that advances this ancient healing practice.

Solid science and also inspiring

As an acupuncture researcher who did my PhD on acute stroke care, I’m allergic to he ‘fairy dust ‘ school of how healing works. Dr. Blakeway’s book is the best I’ve ever read in maintaining a scrupulous neutrality at the level of experimental evidence, without losing touch of the ultimate insight that healing is love. I finished the book deeply inspired and eager to read her other work.

Comprehensive Journey & must read!

The author takes you on a well researched, interesting and comprehensive story of her own healing journey, the healers she has learned from, and the approach our healthcare system has presented over time. I love how dedicated she is with presenting scientific studies as well as alternative evidence. Narration is wonderful as well.

Highly Recommend!!

Your book provides wonderfully informative and useful information for anyone interested in, or even curious about, how our bodies heal. I am being energetically "nudged" into energy healing as I do have some ability. I'm working on cleaning my energy field along with slowly understanding how my skills and style can benefit society and the world as a whole. Like the author and others she presented in the book, I believe that energy healing is something that is learned and developed. I will be re-listening many times to your book as I continue my personal move into energy healing. Thank you for making the sacrifice to write this book and for creating the audiobook. I am a big audiobook fan and very much appreciate authors and publishers producing audiobooks of their work. I want to give a big thanks to the author for narrating the audiobook. I have listened to more than 100 books and your narration was excellent; clear, enjoyable, intriguing, informative, as well as fun to listen to. Thank you!!!

Disappointing

Definitions, historical tidbits, and anecdotes. No original thoughts or insightful content. Serves mainly as self promotion for the author.
