Overview


Welcome to the first comprehensive encyclopedia of the human energetic anatomy.  Here is a reference that no personal or professional health-care library should be without—an in-depth, illustrated guide to the invisible energies of the spirit, psyche, and consciousness that influence every aspect of our well-being.  Whether you are looking for the right complementary medicine to enhance your own healing practice, seeking perennial wisdom about your body’s energetic nature from world traditions, or exploring the quantum edge of intention-based care, The Subtle Body is an indispensible companion for exploring virtually any facet of holistic healing.

Created for healing professionals and patients alike, this volume provides a lexicon of terms, illustrations, and detailed entries about our energetic biology and how it relates to our physical being.  This invaluable information will help you enhance any form of health care and give you the knowledge you need to develop an integrated approach for your clients’ well-being—or your own. 
 
All healers are "energetic" healers, whether they know it or not. Because every health issue has a physical and an energetic component, even a simple physical treatment like bandaging a cut also impacts the body's spiritual, mental, and emotional welfare. The Subtle Body is a comprehensive encyclopedia devoted to the critical world of our invisible anatomy, where so much of healing actually occurs.
Compiled by intuitive healer and scholar Cyndi Dale, this 500-page full color illustrated reference book covers:

  • What is the "subtle body"? New scientific understanding of our quantum-state existence and the unseen fields that determine our physical condition
  • True integrative care: how combining Eastern energetic modalities with Western scientific rigor yields optimum results
  • The meridians, fields, and chakras: detailed information and diagrams about the role of these energetic structures in our overall health
  • Energy-based therapy principles from the world's healing traditions--including Ayurveda, Qigong, Reiki, Quabalah, and many more
For professionals who want to make the leap from being good healers to great ones, one thing is clear: we need to care for every facet of our well-being. With The Subtle Body, practitioners and patients alike now have an unprecedented resource for understanding the physical, energetic, and spiritual elements of human health--for an informed, complete approach to healing.

This is the most in-depth and thorough book on our energetic nature that I have ever seen. It is an essential desk reference for all energy healers, with clear explanations and diagrams that will prove useful over and over again. For a novice, you will find no more complete and clear information anywhere to begin to understand the energy in and around our bodies, and how it functions. Understanding energy is the fundamental key to health of body, mind, and emotions, as well as our relationships and overall success in life. No home should be without "The Subtle Body: En Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy" by Cyndi Dale.

The soul is the substance of energy that organizes conscience and body and makes of it all, a coherent being for reality. And the spirit is the superior dignity of life. -Unknown Author A fascinating journey of discovery awaits you in Cyndi Dale's The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy. By far this is the most in-depth collection of energy healing this reviewer has ever discovered. What makes this book so unique is that it covers all of the top forms of holistic healing. Which includes chakras, energy meridians, acupuncture, reflexology, international healing, Ayurveda, Shiatsu, distant and hands on healing, energy fields, sacred geometry, color and sound healing, and magnetism. It is broken down into six easy to understand parts that include: Part I: Energy and Energy Healing Part II: Human Anatomy Part III: Energy Fields Part IV: Channels of Energy: Channels of Light Part V: Energy Bodies: Chakras and other "Light Switches" Part VI: Energy Practices From the very first page I found that I was so mesmerized at all the knowledge that I was absorbing. With my background in healing touch and reflexology, I was able to quickly put to use the high quality illustrations that showed all the pulse points of the body. No health care professional should be without a copy of Cyndi Dale's The Subtle Body: An Encyclopedia of Your Energetic Anatomy. This book is such an asset to the health care world I believe it should be introduced into the college setting. If all health care providers were to be exposed to all the information that this one book offers, mankind's health benefits would be unlimited. Very highly recommended.

THE SUBTLE BODY covers a smattering of information on most every topic that someone interested in healing could hope to see. Just enough of an overview of necessary material is provided along with stunning full color illustrations on most every page, so readers will feel inspired to seek further details through sources mentioned in the index. Author Cyndi Dale does a truly marvelous job of covering a subject so vast that no other single book has yet attempted to squeeze into one volume, and she succeeds brilliantly. The book is clearly organized into six sections, starting with an overview of physiology and anatomy, so readers who are starting from scratch with very little prior knowledge of the human body can come up to speed. The sections covering energy work do a very nice job of covering both ancient and more modern day systems, without delving too far into some of the more esoteric avenues. I love the concept of this book, and my main issue with it is that it is not nearly big enough. Perhaps in future printings, this book can be expanded to cover topics more comprehensively in order to satisfy even the curiosity of intermediate and advanced level energy workers. Since the scientific aspects mentioned in this edition will tend to go out of date with time, I hope my wish will be granted, and the second edition will include many more of the details I desire. THE SUBTLE BODY is highly recommended for nurses, energy healers, lightworkers and martial artists who are interested in a reference book with great height and length, and not as much depth. Intermediate and advanced energy healers will likely love the gorgeous design and layout of this book, while not necessarily feeling all areas they are interested in covered to their full satisfaction.

"The Subtle Body" by Cyndi Dale is a powerful and gentle path into exploring our energy centers. I find myself picking the book up again and again, reveling in the illustrations and eagerly reading and learning. Cyndi has given me a different perspective to my body, one that I feel I must discover further. I see connections between my body's responses and her in depth outline to Energetic Anatomy. Her book is easy to read and understand and a must-have addition to every woman's library. Beate Chelette, Author of "Women Who Want It All and Get It, Too," Speaker and Entrepreneur
