Study Finds Clinically Significant Pain Reduction From Energy Healing
People have been using various forms of energy medicine for thousands of years, yet it has never been rigorously studied as a scientific form of healing, until now.
Energy medicine is based on the idea that our physical body is just a part of what we are. But we also have an energetic body, which can be manipulated and channeled to create physical changes resulting in healing. While the anecdotal reports of the success of these modalities over the ages are plentiful, energy medicine has always been relegated to the realm of pseudoscience by the mainstream scientific community.
Recently however the Institue of Noetic Sciences (IONS) has sought to change that by conducting a pilot study investigating the effects of energy medicine treatments on pain reduction.
Biorhythms: The Rhythm of Life
Seasons have cycles, from amber fall days to verdant spring mornings covered in dew; day and night cycle between light and dark; the oceans swell and recede; the moon swells and thins to a crescent. If all other forms of life have inherent rhythmic cycles, are humans any different? The simple answer is, no. Whether we’re aware of it or not, humans operate on a delicate biorhythm of various cycles, from the physical, intellectual, intuitive, spiritual, to even the aesthetic.
Derived from the Greek root words, bios (life) and rhythmos (regularly occurring movement or motion), biorhythm can be thought of as the body’s holistic mathematical system that can predict, or when studied, consciously control certain aspects of one’s life such as high performance, creativity, and emotional receptivity.
Biorhythms are “invisible waves of energy within the human body that are constantly in flux.” Considered unique to each person, these energy levels are thought to begin the moment we are born. But how and when did biorhythm theory begin?
