Chapter one, Facts about Human Biofield Therapy:
For centuries the human body and its abilities were a mystery. There were many pioneers like
Ancient Egypt Physicians to Hypoocrate the Father of Ancient Greece Medicine to Davin Chi (the first person that draw human body Anatom), all tried to open up a part of the secret of the human body
to find new ways to heal illnesses and help people to have a longer life.
Today we know that our body on average contains approximately 37.2 trillion cells! and has 11 body systems that are groups of organs and tissues which work together to perform important jobs for the body. Some organs may be part of more than one body system if they serve more than one function.
But do you think all the facts about our body is as we mentioned above?
These 37.2 trillion cells have electron and protons. The Cells normally go through at least 7,000
chemical reactions per second by using these particles.
The body's electrical activity happens primarily in the cell membrane. The cell membrane must
maintain an appropriate "charge" or voltage. A healthy cell has a transmembrane potential of about 80 or 100 millivolts.
By using electromagnetic stimulation, modern measuring techniques have increased the
understanding of electromagnetic bio-communication that makes the coordination of the living
system possible. When the membrane voltage is low, the membrane channels can't function
properly, leading to a domino effect of disease-causing actions (or inactions).
"The degree of healthy Bio-magnetic field around the human body has an important role in human health. Said Dr. W.Pawluk Magnetic a therapist."
In East, Oriental tradition medicine considered human as a combination of two parts, visible and
invisible parts that have to be in harmony with together for a better state of health. From that time
people were aware of the existence of this energy field and named it as Chi, Qi or Prana.
For this reason, there are many practices from the East to make a balance between the human
the physical body and his biomagnetic field, like Chi Cong, Tai Chi, Yoga, Acupuncture, and Acupressure.
Now by improving the technology and science the Bio-magnetic field around the human body is not a
mystery or secretive subject of the human body there are many clinical devices and instruments, like
MRI, Thermal scanning, EEG, that all are using the emissions of these fields to find more
information about the patient's body and its function to solve the health problem.
The biomagnetic field around humans and any living being for the first time recorded by Simon
Kriliyan and his camera GDV camera in 1934. In the first photos, the emission around the body was
beautifully obvious and this camera becomes an instrument for scientific research from the former
Soviet Union, East Europ, UK, and the United States of America about the human body and its
1975 – The living aura: Radiation field photography and the Kirlian effect, by Kendall L Johnson
In 1978 – IUMAB – International Union of Medical and Applied Bioelectrography, the maximum and the greatest Organization, at a worldwide level, on Bioelectrography, was shaped. Today, IUMAB is recognized by UNO/WHO.
Now this fact that all living beings have a bioelectromagnetic field around their physical body is
accepted by the National Institute of the health of America (NIH)
Biofield therapies are noninvasive therapies in which the practitioner explicitly works with a client's biofield (interacting fields of energy and information that surround living systems) to stimulate healing responses in patients. While the practice of biofield therapies has existed in Eastern and Western cultures for thousands of years, empirical research on the effectiveness of biofield
therapies are still relatively nascent.
Healing practices that purport to sense and modulate "subtle energies" of the body have existed for
thousands of years in a wide range of cultures.1 This family of practices, which includes healing
touch (HT), Johrei, Pranic healing, Reiki, qigong and therapeutic touch (TT), is increasingly referred to as bio-field therapies, a term coined during the US National Institutes of Health Conference in 1992.2 In this conference, bio-field therapies are defined as noninvasive, practitioner-mediated therapies that explicitly work with the biofield of both the practitioner and client to stimulate a healing
response in the client. ( J. Altern - Complement Med. 2017 Aug 1; 23(8): 590–598.)
At this same 1992 conference, biofield was defined as a massless field, not necessarily
electromagnetic, that surrounds and permeates living bodies and affects the body. (Clinical Studies
of Biofield Therapies, Glob Adv Health Med. 2015 Nov; 4(Suppl): 58–66.)
According to Eastern medical systems, the body contains channels through which flows invisible but
nutritive energy called Chi, loosely translated to mean vital energy or life force. Furthermore, there
is purported energy surrounding the body, referred to as subtle energy. Subtle energy both informs
and transcends the faculties of the five senses. It is taken into the body via openings, called chakras,
and translated into a form of energy that the body can use, literally use, at the cellular level. Just as
the pineal is the energy transducer for environmental information, the chakras are the energy
transducers for subtle energy. Subtle energy is a healing energy that anyone can learn to perceive
and utilize. It is a crucial, but often missing, a component in health care.
Subtle energy is the foundation of integral physiology, which is a medical paradigm that unites the
enormous contributions of Western medicine with the profound insights of Eastern systems of
health—a truly integral philosophy of healing.
