Energy Therapies & Guided Imagery

by Luanne Hunt

On the natural path to physical and emotional wholeness, there are bound to be a few bumps and bruises along the way. With every treatment or remedy, there's a time of waiting and learning to make adjustments to one's behavior. Getting well without the use of conventional medicine also causes us to exercise our faith muscle in ways that might be foreign or uncomfortable.

Holistic practitioner Gerdi Altman understands this delicate process and has guided countless people to optimum health through a natural therapy called Energy Tuning. Altman said she takes great interest in the well-being of her clients, helping them tune in to positive, life-transforming energy.

She believes just about any physical or emotional issue can be corrected through Energy Tuning, a technique she developed in 2000. According to Altman, the technique has helped correct everything from migraine headaches to chronic fatigue to depression. It involves changing or rebalancing the energies within an individual's energy system to bring them to the correct frequencies.

"Basically, I'm the cleaner and the alarm that tells people what's going on inside their bodies," said Altman, who holds a diploma in medical dowsing recognized by the Institute of Complementary Medicine in the United Kingdom and accredited by Thames Valley University.

"When I'm checking people, I loosen or get rid of the negative stuff and replace it with positive energy. It's like taking an X-ray of your energy, but I think it's a lot better because I can get a picture of everything that's going on within a person."

Through Energy Tuning, Altman said she is able to identify imbalances and blocks using a pendulum and various energy level tests. Once these blocks are located, she implements a clearing process that will remove the rubbish and allow good energy to come through. This is accomplished with various energy remedies, which Altman sends into the client's energy system.

"The remedies used are always energy remedies and no substance is ever involved," said Altman. "For example, if the indication is that a certain herb would be beneficial, the energy of this herb and not the physical herb itself would be captured and adjusted in the correct way and sent across into the client's energy system. There are thousands of remedies to choose from."

When it comes to detecting, measuring, tracking and monitoring energies, Altman believes the pendulum is the perfect instrument. She said by recognizing and interpreting the movements of a pendulum correctly, energies in the human body can be observed with precision.

Altman's pendulum is lightweight and made of clear crystal. These devices can be of various weights and made of wood, metal or other materials. Typically, they are suspended from a chain or a string.

"Over the years, I've learned that the pendulum is extremely reliable," said Altman. "I can see from the strength of the swing, or spin, what's going on. There's no guessing, personal opinions, experimenting, trial-and-error or hit-or-miss situation. Through an energy link with the client, the pendulum will give the exact picture."

In order to get a clear snapshot of a person's health, Altman creates what she refers to as an energy link to them. She does this by asking them for their date and location of birth, as well as a strand of their hair.

This information allows her to begin checking all the energy systems in their body to see which are running correctly and incorrectly. She said a person does not need to be present for the therapy and she works with patients via telephone and e-mail all around the world.

According to Altman, a course of energy clearing and balancing can take days, weeks or sometimes months. She said while chronic conditions such as asthma and back pain may be more difficult to correct, less severe problems like the flu or eye irritations usually clear up quickly. All of Altman's treatments require follow-up sessions that differ in frequency depending on the individual's health issues.

Along with Energy Tuning sessions, Altman recommends a variety of holistic remedies to encourage healing, such as homeopathy, vitamins and minerals, Chinese herbs, Chakra balancing, aromatherapy and acupuncture, to name a few. Additionally, she educates her clients about the importance of proper nutrition.

For those on traditional medications or therapies, Altman said Energy Tuning will not interfere. She recommends that anyone undergoing medical treatment continue to follow their doctor's advice and let them know before starting any alternative program.

"Energy Tuning is very effective but people have to be open to making changes in regards to the way they take care of their bodies," said Altman. "It takes time and effort to turn your situation around.

"But many of my clients get really motivated when other people start noticing the changes in them. When they tell me stories about how someone said they look much healthier, that gives me the biggest pleasure."
