The principal of energy healing is to bring the client’s body to a state of homeostasis.
Based on the laws of physics and with the help of some areas of scientific research we will try to clarify in basic terms the principal behind energy healing.
There are concepts that are now readily accepted by the scientific community based on traditional physics and one such concept is entrainment. Entrainment is described as the synchronization of organisms to an external rhythm, in other words two oscillating bodies will lock into phase with each other so that they vibrate in harmony.
The physics principle called entrainment was first discovered in 1665 by a Dutch Physicist and Scientist named Christian Huygens, who made many well known scientific discoveries in the field of physics. During his research with the pendulum clocks, Huygens noticed that when he placed two clocks on a wall beside each other and started swinging the pendulums on each clock, eventually they fell into rhythm with each other thus discovering entrainment – the basic law of physics.
How is entrainment related to energy healing?
At a biological level each person’s cells are vibrating and these cellular vibrations are creating their own electromagnetic energy fields. It is possible to postulate that collectively these billions of cells creating these energy fields may be what creates an even larger and stronger energy field which forms the human energy field in and around the body. These low level magnetic fields referred to as the body’s biofield are now being measured and researched using specialised equipment such as super-conducting quantum interference devices (SQUIDs).
In a therapy situation, when a practitioner applies one of the many energy healing techniques which are part of our training course, the practitioner places their hands on or over the client’s body. The electromagnetic energy fields of the practitioner’s hands may ‘entrain’ with the energy field of the client’s body as they integrate and interact with each other.
With entrainment in physics the stronger force has the more dominant effect on the weaker force. In a similar manner it is feasible to imagine the electromagnetic energy flow in the practitioner’s hands having the effect of influencing the client’s electromagnetic energy field by ‘entrainment’. The basis of energy healing is to try and create the right environment in the person’s body to help activate the body’s own natural healing process, and in turn help to create a state of homeostasis in the person’s body.
