When I search on the web for the “science of energy healing” I get pulled every which way. There are online courses, there are scholarly articles, news articles, and skeptical articles. I could spend hours just surfing and never really finding anything of substance. It is very difficult to find information that is comprehensive and scientific.
So where do you go if you want to learn more?
A great place to start is to read the article Biofield Science and Healing: An Emerging Frontier in Medicine. This article is from the Journal Global Advances in Health and Medicine. What I liked about this article is that it grouped all types of energy healing together instead of exploring each modality. Before differentiating each type of energy healing it is helpful to understand the foundation behind them all. This article hypothesizes that all energy healing is biofield healing. The biofield is the field of energy that surrounds each of us. This article describes how working with a person’s biofield can impact healing of the physical body.
Another great resource about the science of consciousness and energy healing is The Institute of Noetic Sciences. This organization has made it their mission to research consciousness in a scientific way. They have an abundance of resources including videos, journal articles, community groups, conferences and more.
