Medical Intuition is a method of intuitive scanning intended to obtain information from the physical body and energy systems (biofield). Medical Intuition is designed to identify the underlying drivers and root causes of imbalance, to not only help promote physical wellness, but also emotional, mental and spiritual wellbeing, and is part of the emerging field of Complementary and Integrative Medicine (CIM).

Although Medical Intuition uses the word "medical," the use of Medical Intuition is not to be construed as the practice of medicine, psychotherapy, or any other licensed healthcare practice, and is not to be considered a replacement for medical care, medical diagnosis, therapy, counseling or treatment of any kind. Always refer to a licensed health care professional for health care. Please read our Disclaimer.


Recent advances in the field of mind-body medicine acknowledge the importance of including intuition when treating patients and clients. (Johansson-Palmqvist-Ronnenberg, 2017; Peterkin, 2017; Marks-Tarlow, T., 2014)

Current awareness of intuition in healthcare includes intuitive “hits” or “feelings” that can be random, unpredictable and unreliable. Many people believe that one must be “born with it,” or have access to special gifts. These are basic misunderstandings of the skill of intuition. Like any other skill, intuitive abilities can be developed and optimized for greater clarity, consistency and application. 

Medical Intuition focuses on the use of pinpoint intuitive visualization skills and in-depth scanning to evaluate energetic structures and patterns in the physical systems of the body and the biofield that can correspond to illness, imbalance and disease. In addition, Medical Intuition can assist in addressing the energetic influence of thoughts, beliefs and emotions, and how they impact health and wellness.
