This is a very readable book about the science of energy healing It provides hope for the future of medicine and healing. A good mostly lucid introduction to energy healing , including a research based glance at such techniques as Reiki.For those who are already deep into this stuff, this book might be a little basic But it could be a good scientific introduction to the topic for your friend who is just starting to get it.The last 3rd or so can be hard to follow in places, but the gist one important concept examined here is that every human being has as much potential to heal others energetically as they might have to build houses or learn to play a musical instrument that it s a talent, not a rare mutation, that to a certain extent it can be learned is well worth the time spent. A Healer Removes The Pain Of A Broken Wrist In Fifteen Minutes Another Removesan Ovarian Tumor In A Couple Of Weeks Still Another, From Thousands Of Miles Away, Regenerates The Nerves Of An Injured Spine For A Patient On Whom The Doctors Had Given Up These Sound Like Tabloid Stories But Could They Be True They Are Just Three Out Of Millions Of Instances In Which Healers Have Claimed To Manipulate Energy Fields To Cure The BodyBooks On Vibrational Medicine, Prayer, And Spiritual Healing Present Readers With An Array Of Historical And Current Discoveries And Techniques But So Far Nobody Has Addressed The Reality Of Healing Through Comprehensive Scientificresearch The Energy Healing Experiments Fills That Void Harvard Educated Dr Gary E Schwartz Provides Scientific Experiments And Evidence To Reveal The Truth About The Existence Of Energy Fields And Unlocks Their Potential For Enhancing Your Health My main takeaway from Schwartz s book is his starting premise, which is that the body is an antenna it picks up, amplifies, and broadcasts information via certain electromagnetic frequencies I appreciated the documentation and discussion of repeatable, reproducible experiments by which others can attempt to verify that energy healing both occurs meaning that some people treated by energy healers get well and relies on systems by which other things happen in our world meaning that plants, animals, inert objects and cell phones also have energy fields that communicate with one another This is important the book is about establishing that energy healing does happen and considering possible means by which it happens it s NOT a how to do it yourself book.It s all woo woo enough that I doubt it will persuade many hardcore skeptics, but what the hell, it was an intriguing read nonetheless I felt the last third with this extended explanation of energy healing via cell phone technology, a very cursory discussion of spirituality, and an envisioning of a possible future in which energy healing is regularly utilized by western medicine was less valuable than the rest of the book I also got tired of Schwartz s aggressively chatty, casual, colloquial diction and tone But the subject matter overall still fascinated me and gave me some new ways to think about something I have already experienced and hope to explore. Great scientific explanations to energy healing This book included a variety of research and experiments to help explain energy healing like Reiki. in my constant search to the connection between myth, metaphysics, religion, and science, i stumbled upon this book on the same shelf as Matrix Energetics i skimmed chapter 7, sensing the energy of minerals and crystals and am curious about the people bringing up the interest, the actual experimenters, methods, tools and machinery, and the like this review will evolve as i read through it. It was good, but I wanted data It seemed like he was assuming a lot rather than providing good references. A scientific study of energy fields and how they can be used for healing purposes Even an academic can get behind his methodology and anyone who is interesting in energy will feel vindicated. A necessary read for anyone trying to understand the energy healing phenomena. the author is one of those brilliant guys with a phd in a million different specialties medicine, neurology, psychology, psychiatry, and surgery to name a few who has had a profound experience with energy healing personally and professionally he designed and carried out a series of experiments, which were duplicated by other researchers in other labs, that basically prove the efficacy of a varity of energy healing techniques including Reiki The results of his experiments, went beyond proving that these methods are statistically highly effective, just as much and perhaps so than many traditional allopathic treatments and considerably LESS expensive than many western allopathic treatments Results also suggest that most people, whether they know it or not, are sensitive to the energies of other people, and that some folks healers in particular can be naturally sensitive to the energetic patterns of others physically and emotionally Also, results indicate that the stress levels of the practitioner giving the treatment actually have an impact on the person receiving the treatment the less stress a practioner is under, the effective the treatment the client will receive something to think about when working with any healthcare practioner This is very interesting technically, and the results of these experiments clearly indicate that energy healing definitely works although we don t fully understand how yet.There are such great implications and questions raised for future research, and hope for other highly effective yet simple healthcare solutions energy medicine comes in many easily accesible user friendly forms, and the future of healthcare involves empowering people with easy choices and options for highly affordable self healthcare.
