Frequently Asked Allergy Questions

1. What is Natural Bioenergetics (NB)?
Natural Bioenergetics is concerned with re-balancing the energy system of the body. This is the same energy system on which acupuncture is based. The difference is that we do not use needles – we use a light touch with our hands. It is non-invasive and most find it quite relaxing.

2. Where did Natural Bioenergetics come from?
NB was developed by Dr. Jimmy Scott. He took aspects of the Chinese acupuncture model and his own unique insight and developed a powerful healing system.

3. What to expect from a session?
During a session, the client lies comfortably on a massage table fully clothed. Applied kinesiology or muscle monitoring is used to identify imbalances along the meridians of the body’s energy system. A regular session can keep stress levels under control, making it easier to maintain optimal health.

4. What is muscle monitoring?
Muscle monitoring is used to identify problem areas – light pressure is applied to a muscle and the response is monitored.

5. What is an energy meridian?
Each person has 14 energy meridians ( 2 single and 6 pairs) that exist at the skin layer. Energy must flow freely along these meridians in order for the physical body to maintain optimum health. The Chinese documented the energy meridian system and acupuncturists have successfully used them for several thousand years to treat disease and even block pain during surgery. Western medicine has also recently accepted their existence when instruments were finally developed that were sensitive enough to detect the “subtle energy.”

6. How many appointments would I need?
It’s difficult to predict the number of appointments without directly speaking to the client first. Consequently, I offer a complimentary 15-minute phone consultation to better assess how much I can help. Depending on the complexity of the individual’s issues, I typically see results within two to three appointments. It’s not uncommon to see significant results on the first visit.

7. Why have I never heard of Natural Bioenergetics before?
NB is a rather new modality in Canada but it has a 40-year history in the UK, Germany, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. As more practitioners become certified in Canada you should become more aware of NB.
