Bonnie Morgan’s Story on Releasing Negative Emotional Baggage

“Edmund Gibson performs exceptional and remarkable treatments for people who want to release negative emotional baggage not only to heal mentally but also for their bodies to heal.  Personally, because of my training in energy healing the last 3 years, Doctor Gibson was substantially instrumental in allowing me to immediately release over 12,000 negative energies – specifically concerning ratalor – and hundreds more for blood stagnation, pain, etc., etc., etc. If you truly want to become well and pain free, I highly recommend Dr. Gibson – gentle, compassionate, pure and a blessing for mankind.” -April 2, 2015

Everyone (at Yang Institute) is so […]

I’ve made almost […]

Marshall’s Story

“Dr. Edmund, I just wanted to write a quick note to let you know how much I appreciate the acupuncture sessions I had. I had become very stuck in some negative emotions – mainly anger and sadness and was very irritable. I realized this and was concerned for the health of my relationships, especially with my husband. After my first session, I felt very calm, not stressed, worried or angry and sad. I am not feeling irritable and testy.  Also, your motion sickness treatment was an added benefit! I am eager to go home and get with a qualified acupuncturist […]
