A Glossary of Energy Medicine

The What – Who – When – Why and How of Energy Medicine

AAMET Association for the Advancement of Meridian Energy Techniques – one of the governing bodies that EFT Practitioners, Trainers, Trainers of Trainers and Masters can join – who are committed to developing and upholding standards to ensure public and practitioner safeguards and accountability.
Balancing / Centred A therapeutic term that refers to all part of the body, mind and spirit being in sync, to give an overall balanced outlook and approach to life.  It also implies a commitment to personal growth and development.
Disease 1. Sympathetic Phase META-Medicine link between the two-phases-of-disease. Traditional medicine also recognizes this as the Stress Phase with symptoms such as:

  • Cold extremities
  • Poor sleep patterns
  • Lack of appetite
  • Eating high fat/sugar/salt products
  • Obsessive thinking


Disease 2. Para-sympathetic Phase META-Medicine link between the two-phases-of-disease. Traditional medicine also recognizes this as the Healing Phase with symptoms such as:

  • Physical symptoms
  • Temperature
  • Warm hands and feet
  • Deep sleep and recuperation
  • Yearning for wholesome foods
  • Rest and relaxation
  • This phase has 3-stages but the above gives a general outline


Disease 3. The Healing Crisis META-Medicine link between the two-phases-of-disease. Traditional medicine also recognizes this as the Healing Spike and shows itself:This stage of the Healing Phase (during the parasympathetic phase) is when any condition is at its worst, most painful, even life threatening (for a serious disease) because the body is wringing out all the water it acquired in the first part of this phase.  Its also the stage when a simple headache occurs.  It’s the most challenging stage of all, but once the body has gone through it, it comes out the other side and can really begin healing well – provided the aspects that caused it have been addressed.  Otherwise the whole set of symptoms will get triggered again.
ECHO Energy Consciousness Hologram is the name Karl Dawson gave to a memory, as the belief is that any unresolved memory will still be in the matrix and acts as the child/adult at the age when it broke off the main energy system.  Until it gets brought back into the balanced body it can will appear whenever that same emotion-related-incident is triggered.
EFT Emotional Freedom Techniques are similar to Acupuncture, using fingers to tap on the face and upper body parts, instead of using needles.
Embryology Embryologyis a science which shows the development of an embryo from fertilization to the fetus stage, and the four brain layers develop at different stages and these are there conflict themes:Brain Stem – Survival
Cerebellum – Protection
Cerebral Medulla – Self-Devaluation
Cerebral Cortex – Territory/Social issues
Energy Medicine Developed by Donna Eden and she demonstrates through her book ‘Energy Medicine’ how to read the body’s surrounding energy field – with a series of case-studies and a range of exercises you can implement into a daily routine.
Energy Psychology Another name for the plethora of Energy Techniques that have been developing (in the field of Neuro-science) since the 1980’s.
Healing This is a word that has been adopted by the Alternative/Complementary Medicine/Therapy community, but is still used in Eastern and African cultures in relation to ‘recovering from illness or disease’.
Hypnosis A trance-like ‘state’ or meditation … when the brain is in Theta (brainwaves) and the most restorative.
Hypnotherapy A method for quieting the Conscious Mind in order to re-programme an unhelpful behaviour on the Subconscious level … its not dissimilar to a computer’s hard-drive.
Life Coaching A method that is goal oriented, setting timescales and deadlines, often used in relation to setting personal/business targets.  Life Coaching also encourages working towards A Life Balance in all compartments:

  • Career / Work / Profession
  • Community
  • Family
  • Hobbies
  • Money / Wealth
  • Personal growth and development
  • Relationships
  • Social

The most popular method is based on the SMART principle:

  • S = Specific
  • M = Measurable
  • A = Attainable
  • R = Relevant
  • T = Timely


Matrix The Matrix is another name for the energetic field that surrounds the body.
Matrix Reimprinting A method of going into the Matrix – where memories are believed to be stored – in order to change any negative energies that are being held there.  By visiting the ECHO and releasing any negative hold a learned behaviour, compulsion or habit was playing out, releases the ECHO at the same time.  The method also replaces the negative energy with a positive energy so the original memory can no longer disrupt the energy system.
Meridians There are about 400 acupuncture points and 20 meridians connecting most of the points, but by the 2ndCentury CE, 649 acupuncture points were recognized in China.The 20 meridians include ‘twelve regular channels’ or ‘twelve regular meridians’, with each meridian corresponding to each organ.
META-Medicine So named by Johannes Fisslinger.  The principles of META-Medicine stem mostly from the work done by Reike Hamer who mapped the brain/organ relationship (based on Embryology).META-Medicine developed this information drawing from the findings in NLP and other modalities.  They now recognize that the body is affected by the following aspects in life:

  • Emotional
  • Mental
  • Physical
  • Social / Environmental
  • Spiritual

When a UDIN occurs all five of these areas can be affected as the body goes into stress.  Once the RP (Reversal Point) occurs the body develops physical symptomology and the specific symptoms and medical diagnosis can assist greatly in helping to discover what UDIN shock caused a disease.


META-Healing A method that acts as an umbrella system to any other modality you prefer and draws on the information in META-Medicine to enable symptoms and behaviour’s to leave the bodies energy system.  Its been developed by Richard Flook.
Muscle Testing This technique is used in Applied kinesiology (AK) and helps provided feedback from the subconscious / higher conscious minds.  It can take time to develop confidence with it, but in practical terms anyone can learn how to do it quickly, no real training required.
Neuro-Linguistic Programming was developed by co-founders Richard Bandler and John Grinder in the early 1980’s.  It’s a method of re-programming the neural pathways that run throughout the nervous system to the brain and is where habits are laid down.  NLP allows us to quickly re-programme an unwanted habit by referring to the 5-submodalities:

  • Auditory
  • Kinesthetic
  • Smell
  • Taste
  • Visual

Everyone has one or more of these that works more strongly and by using the appropriate one/s for you, will allow for quicker change.


Psych-K A method that draws from a range of other modalities and applies them differently.  Its main premise is in re-balancing the body/mind/spirit system through a range of body-balances.
Reversal Point In META-Medicine the Reversal Point (RP) helps identify the UDIN because the RP occurs just before the physical symptoms arrive.  This is another way of tracing what the original cause of a disease in someone.
Tapping Tapping is what EFT and TFT have become known as.  It’s the process of tapping (with two fingers) on the face or upper body meridian points.
UDIN The Unidentified /  Dramatic / Isolating (incident) / where a person has NO Strategy to deal with it – if ALL these aspects are in place when something occurs that shocks the system (that goes into flight / fight or freeze) then it will develop into a physical condition (anything from a small thing such as a spot or headache) up to a life-threatening disease (cancer / heart disease etc).  If one of these components is missing NOTHING will develop.
Why use words in EFT The use of words instead of needles for meridian tapping is so useful because it enables someone to uncover ‘limiting beliefs’ that are held in the subconscious mind.  Using words brings up all sorts of memories, feelings thoughts and emotions that may lie buried and once out the bodies system is freed from them.This method allows someone to be more involved in the process with a chance to gain any insights of what has been ‘keeping us stuck’.
