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 spirit, psyche, and consciousness that influence every aspect of our well-being.

Whether you are looking for the 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 indispensable 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, giving you the knowledge you need to develop an integrated approach for your clients' well-being or your own.

Compiled by energetic healer and scholar Cyndi Dale, The Subtle Body examines:

  • Energy-based therapy principles from the world's healing traditions, including Ayurveda, Qigong, Reiki, Quabalah, and many more
  • The science of subtle anatomy—the ancient models and the newest research on 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
  • The role of intention in healing—how the beliefs of a healer, patient, and everyone involved affect the outcome of a treatment

What is it that distinguishes good healers from great ones? Today it is clear that the most successful healing occurs when we take into account every level of our physical and energetic selves. With The Subtle Body, you now have an unprecedented resource for understanding the physical, energetic, and spiritual elements of human health, providing an informed, complete approach to healing.

The Subtle Body has received the following awards:

  • 2010 Gold Nautilus Award—Health/Healing/Energy Medicine
  • 2010 Silver Living Now Award—Health/Wellness
  • 2010 Bronze IPPY—New Age (Mind-Body-Spirit)

Eye opening Review by Bri

I discovered this book about 8 years ago and it opened my eyes to a new world of possibilities. I find myself revisiting it time and time again. Great source.

Review for The Subtle Body Review by matt walsh

Admittedly, I did not read the entire book. I only made it halfway through before finally putting it down in frustration. I was OK with most of the subtle body content. It was the attempt at citing science and lack of logical argument that made my blood boil. Some of the things that were said made me cringe. Others were just out and out BS. Someone with a scientific background should have proof read this book before it ever went to print. The last thing I read before I stopped reading was when Cyndi claimed, without attribution, that the charge of electrons is weakening because we are not showing proper respect and care for the Earth. Utter nonsense.

I'm completely on-board with the idea of the subtle body. Unfortunately, I think that scientists do not have the tools or techniques to properly study this phenomenon and so they are reluctant to do so. Many (most?) of them see this field as packed full of lunatics and others that have no appreciation for scientific method. This book only reinforces that view.

Please, please, please rewrite this book with the help of a qualified physicist.

Review for The Subtle Body Review by David Dayhoff

Excellent power tour of all things to do with the human body and healing. Overwhelming in some areas of explanation, this book will give anyone interested in the healing arts a good starting point with defininitions, charts, graphs, references and recommended reading lists.
As a hands on healer, there was information here that I found fascinating because it told me why some things were true that I knew to be true, already. Highly recommend it.

Review for The Subtle Body Review by Amy Sanders

This book is a rare gem among the mass of books of this genre. As others have stated, it covers the main schools of thought on holistic healing: this book includes chakras, energy meridians, acupuncture, reflexology, Ayurveda, Shiatsu, distant and hands on healing, energy fields, sacred geometry, color and sound healing, and magnetism.
I have this book on the reading list for my students of Professional Colon Therapy as it is a must have.

Review for The Subtle Body Review by Suzie Housley, Midwest Book Review

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.

Review for The Subtle Body Review by Chandra Thornburg

Many of the books I read are narrow in scope. The Subtle Body is broad and very inclusive. It’s really a wonderful reference text so I’m sharing the information about it with you. It has excellent illustrations and is easy to understand (even for me!).

This is a great book if you’re working with, or interested in, the energy flow in the body
