Energy Medicine Summary

Energy Medicine: the science of acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and other healing methods by Jill Blakeway (Practitioner of Chinese Medicine)

What is energy healing? And why does it work?

For thousands of years, practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have used the body's own energy - which they call 'qi' - to promote healing. Here, one of the world's most sought-after acupuncturists sets out to understand the science behind this ancient practice.

Blakeway takes the reader on a journey from the Stanford and Princeton professors researching the physics of energy medicine, to a Qi Gong master from China who manifests healing herbs directly from her palm; and from the Harvard team studying the placebo effect, to a group of sceptical scientists who use hands-on healing to cure mammary cancer in mice. She also tells the story of how she discovered energy medicine and overcame her initial disbelief to become one of its leading practitioners.

From hard science to the spiritual and back again, Energy Medicine is a quest to find out why these alternative methods of healing are proving successful for thousands worldwide.

Energy Medicine Reviews

'Energy Medicine is an absorbing tale of the history and science of energy medicine. Jill Blakeway describes what it means - both personally and scientifically - to be a skilled healer, and shares the cutting edge research of her discipline, as well as incredible real life stories of healing. This is a book that will uplift, inspire, and hopefully convince us all to reconsider what we believe is possible with our health.'

-- Christiane Northrup, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

'In Energy Medicine, Jill Blakeway shares not only her considerable knowledge but also her life's journey, taking the reader by the hand on an exploration of the science and practice of energy healing. As entertaining as it is rigorous, this is a book that both educates and enlightens.'

-- Frank Lipman, MD, bestselling author of The New Health Rules and How to be Well

'In Energy Medicine, Jill Blakeway deftly explains the vital role of energy in all living things, showing us how it influences our health in mind and body as well as how it connects us to one another. A fascinating and illuminating read from one of the [United States'] top practitioners of energy medicine.'

-- Mark Hyman, MD, bestselling author of Eat Fat, Get Thin

'As a patient who has been blessed to experience Jill Blakeway's incredible energy firsthand, I can attest that she is a gifted healer. In Energy Medicine she validates what we know to be true intuitively - that the body has the power to heal itself - and offers readers the tools to understand and access the subtle energy within us. Far from a mystical tract, this book provides a true scientific investigation of the energy that exists within each of us and connects us to one another.'

-- Uma Thurman

'Blakeway's personal telling of the healing powers of Eastern-borne medicines is filled with data and clinically backed research, an inspiring read for those wanting to learn more about alternative therapies.'

-- Margaux Lushing * Forbes *

'As a certified acupuncturist and clinical herbalist heavily involved in the field, the author begins by honestly relating her long-standing doubts about the effectiveness of such treatments. She then delves into scientific research that supports energy healing, explaining her findings in an understandable and approachable way.'
