In this comprehensive guide to subtle energy and its associated physical manifestations, Robert Henderson reveals how the discomfort and pain you carry in your physical body is related to the energies of the life you have experienced.

The author explains the eight types of subtle energy: Emotional, which carries anger, fear, love, and other emotions; Mental, which affects patterns of behavior, beliefs, actions, and memories; Spiritual, which influences intuition, inspiration, and transcendent states; Sexual, which affects creativity, spontaneity, and excitement; Environmental, which arises from stress at work, tension at home, and other outside influences; Interpersonal, which comes from interactions with family, lovers, and friends; Ancestral, the energy of the lives of your parents up to the time of your conception; and Karmic, the energy of your past lives.

Detailing how these energies are drawn in by the chakras and distributed throughout the body by the meridians, the author explains how suffering acute emotional trauma or long-term stress causes negative energies to accumulate in the energy body much like fat deposits. Our physical body reacts to these energy blockages, leading to physical conditions such as closed hips, tight hamstrings, digestive distress, chronic pain, and persistent tension in areas like the shoulders. The author explores more than 30 specific physical ailments, providing the energetic origins of each condition, the exact location of the corresponding energy blockage, and which meridians, chakras, and points are affected. He covers sexual energy in depth, explaining how to handle repressed energy as it is released during yoga or massage.

As the author shows, physical ailments caused by the energies of hurtful life events can be healed through massage and yoga, allowing you to become open to the free and spontaneous circulation of energy through the subtle body.

Review quote

"Emotion and Healing in the Energy Body provides a sophisticated yet user-friendly map of the body's subtle energy systems. The work is rooted in the authority of Henderson's own experiences as an energy healer while seamlessly weaving together knowledge from the wisdom traditions that are at the foundation of his work. Written in highly accessible language, it will be a valued resource for beginners as well as more advanced practitioners." * Donna Eden and David Feinstein, Ph.D., coauthors of Energy Medicine and The Energies of Love * "What lays between your 'true' and 'current' self? Based on Robert Henderson's thorough, enriching, and illuminating explanations of subtle energy and healing, I would say, 'Your place of power.' Henderson's brilliant book outlines the means for detecting the blocked energies in your life and body and ways to clear them using energetic, yogic, and massage processes. Henderson's comprehensive understanding of the sources of our obvious problems, from karma to emotions to mental misunderstandings, will enable us all to powerfully transform others and ourselves." * Cyndi Dale, author of The Subtle Body, New Chakra Healing, Energetic Boundaries, and The Intuition G * "With more than 15 years of experience teaching and practicing Thai massage, Robert's book enriches the culture of massage and yoga. In clear and simple language he provides a doorway to understanding the role of energy in healing. I highly recommend this book for those who want to explore beyond the physical." * Kam Thye Chow, founder and director of the Lotus Palm School and author of Thai Yoga Massage and Tha *
