Bioenergy Healing, Bioenergy Medicine, or Biofield Therapy includes a range of different therapeutic treatments in which a therapist influences or manipulates the patient’s Subtle Energy, Vital Life Force, Aura, or Biofield to restore the person’s (energy) balance and stimulate the body’s innate self-healing abilities.
Many types of Bioenergy Healing have been used for millennia in various ancient civilizations, often based on Vital Life Force concepts and systems. Some examples of Bioenergy Healing modalities are Therapeutic Touch (TT), Magnet Therapy, Crystal Healing, Reiki, Pranic Healing, Qigong, and Laying on of Hands.
Nevertheless, there are widely different theories surrounding the way Bioenergy Healing works, explaining its healing results as, for instance, a matter of quantum mechanics, Prana circulation, biophotons, Vital Force flow, Orgone, intention, suggestion, placebo, (yet) unknown energy fields, and so on.
Biofield therapy treatments can be carried out through physical contact with the receiver — called the direct method and typically carried out with the hands — or by giving non-touch therapy — the indirect method — performed in proximity of the receiver, or over a larger distance.
Bioenergy Medicine practitioners believe that treatments can heal or reduce (symptoms of) fibromyalgia, sleep apnea, allergies, bronchitis, addictions, chronic pains, anxiety, fatigue, depression, burnout, insomnia, and headaches, among other conditions, and improve general health, vitality, and well-being.
