Placebo effect is the spirit of Medicine. Different therapeutic mechanisms only represent the tip of the iceberg of healing response but there is a folk belief that the healing response (non-specific + specific responses) attributes to the therapeutic method or agent.
Placebo is a neutral matter of sham technique, which can heal because it is expected to heal. In fact, placebo is interpreted as a sign and it produces meaning; anticipation of getting better.
Energy-based therapies like other medical interventions transfer this healing sign in several forms, and induce placebo response in their own manner. If a healer knows the Biosemiotic dynamisms and the function of direct and indirect suggestions in clinical settings s/he can intentionally select and formulate an effective and salutogenic set of signs.
If you mention it or not, healing is occurred in a semiotic atmosphere, and if we want to reduce the failure rate and resistance to healing stream we should organize the act of verbal and non-verbal signs.
