Energy Medicine in Therapeutics
In a few decades science has gone from a conviction that there is no such thing as energy fields in and around the human body to an absolute certainty that they exist. Traditional energy healing methods are being investigated in biomedical research. The resulting synthesis benefits everyone, especially those people who have injuries or diseases that are difficult to treat with other techniques. This course explores the fundamental discoveries providing the basis for the various energetic therapies, discoveries from a wide variety of disciplines. With a few exceptions, the remarkable generalizations — the big picture — emerging from the individual discoveries has been virtually invisible to the participants in the search for knowledge. What has been discovered is the scientific basis for the interconnectedness and continuity of the parts of the living organism. This interconnectedness is based upon careful study of the structure and function of cells and tissues. It provides a basis for the streaming of energy and information throughout the body. The relevant scientific literature validates the efficacy of Energy Medicine as a new academic discipline on a par with biophysics, bioenergetics and biochemistry.
