Intuition Medicine® is a system of expanded perception of the world through the development of the human sense of intuition. This system, developed by founder Francesca McCartney PhD, includes an integrated study of subtle energy anatomy systems and their connection to the physical anatomical systems.

This model of Intuition Medicine and its hypotheses have been synthesized from Francesca’s intuitive coaching of thousands of people over the course of three decades, and her study of science, spirituality, education and holistic medicine. This material and theory are not intended to be used in place of a doctor’s advice. Rather, Intuition Medicine is intended to be used to increase the effectiveness of conventional diagnosis and treatment of body, mind and spirit.

About the Academy

The Academy of Intuition Medicine (AIM), founded in 1984, is a globally recognized academic school for professional intuitives and for those interested in developing intuition as a pragmatic skill. The faculty of AIM includes Francesca McCartney, founder and director; an Advisory Board; a dedicated and highly professional group of teachers and coaches, and Administrative staff.

The mission of AIM is to teach and empower individuals to discover and use their natural intuitive sense in all endeavors of life. The philosophy of AIM is that everyone has innate intuitive abilities that can be developed and utilized as a natural human sense.

Students enter the Academy with many goals: to pursue a career as a Medical Intuitive; to integrate intuitive abilities into a current career; or to develop intuition for practical awareness, self-growth, and personal healing.

The core courses are available to anyone looking to increase their intuitive abilities and integrate intuition in their daily lives. The elective seminars continue to support one’s interest in developing intuitive skills. For students interested in pursuing advanced studies of intuition for their own purposes or for career training as a Medical Intuitive or Intuition Medicine Coach, the Academy offers a certificate program, the Master Certification in Intuition Medicine (MIM).

Academy courses are available to interested students worldwide, wherever they are, through the Academy of Intuition Medicine® Online (AIMO).

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are available for registered nurses, members of the Associated Bodywork & Massage Professionals (ABMP), and Acupuncturists.

The Academy also offers custom-designed courses for corporations, hospitals, clinics and healing centers. These on-site courses are tailored to focus on the specific intuitive skills needed in each individual facility.
