About Donna Eden and David Feinstein

Donna Eden has for 25 years been teaching people to methodically and with precision direct their energies for health and happiness, using methods akin to acupressure, therapeutic touch, and qi gong. Donna is an author, lecturer, and teacher of energy medicine. In her work, she often collaborates with her husband, David Feinstein, PhD, a former faculty member of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine


Donna and David co-wrote the bestseller book, Energy Medicine. They also co-authored Six Pillars of Energy Medicine: Clinical Strengths of a Complementary Paradigm, and their newest book, Tapping: Self Healing with the Transformative Power of Energy Psychology.


Donna serves on the faculty of the Energy Medicine University. She conceived and trademarked the term "Energy Kinesiology" to describe a process of using muscle testing for detecting and correcting imbalances in the body. Donna also co-founded the nonprofit Energy Medicine Institute in Ashland, Oregon. The Eden Energy Medicine Certification Program is based on her work.


I hope you enjoy this conversation with Donna and David!
