The effectiveness of energy healing as described in the bio field therapies by US National Institutes of Health Conferences of 1992, requires a deeper rethinking in roots causes of diseases.The mechanisms of these therapies: Reiki, Qigong, Johrei, Healing Touch (HT) have been explained in Hammerschlag (2) but these processes are still opaque to conventional allopathic research and treatment.

How does energy healing work? The NIHC defined bio field as “a mass-less field, not necessarily electromagnetic, that surrounds and permeates living bodies and affects the body.” Based on my experience as a Reiki Healer, I expand the definition it include biofields as a structure and a container of information that distributes and processes an individual’s state of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

All practitioners of healing agree that trauma, stress, depression and other negative emotions correlate with reduced health outcomes. Using the expanded definition, I will describe how many conventional diseases are an expression of mental or emotional states that have become trapped in the human bio field and can be released through the bio field therapies such as Reiki.
