Bioenergetic Healing – the Scientific Basis

Last century astonishing developments took place in physics. For instance, Max Planck discovered the quartation of energy, the young Einstein acknowledged the double nature of quanta as wave-particle effects, and Werner Heisenberg challenged the supremacy of cause and effect in the subatomic realms.


The 1920’s saw the rise of quantum physics and the first inklings of what would come to be known as the ‘nonlocal’ effect.

Nonlocality is ‘action at a distance,’ where measuring an inherent characteristic of one of a quantum pair, such as one electron of a pair of electrons, instantaneously imparts information about or affects the other particle of the pair. In later decades, experiments showed that the well-focused intention of an individual or group can have a material effect on another person, substance or process thousands of miles away.

Radiesthesia is a healing methodology that serves as an example of this non-local effect. It aims to detect ’radiation’ within the body and to then interact with this radiation to exert a beneficial effect. According to the theory, all human bodies give off unique or characteristic ’radiations’. Radiesthesia is cited as the explanation of such phenomena as dowsing by rods and pendulums in order to locate buried objects, diagnose illnesses, and the like.

Following on from Radiesthesia, at the beginning of the 20th Century Dr Albert Abrams developed the method of ‘radionics’. He showed that healthy subjects have certain energy rates moving through their bodies, whereas unhealthy people exhibit different energy rates that define disorders. Radionic devices are used to diagnose rate distortions and send the body the appropriate radionic ‘frequencies’ to balance the discordant frequencies, thereby helping to return the body to health.

Lakhovsy, Burr and Kirlian

In 1925, a Russian engineer, Georges Lakhovsky, showed that every living thing emits electro/magnetic signals, and that a cell’s nucleus acts as an electrical oscillating circuit similar to a radio transmitter and receiver. He was, in time honoured fashion, vilified by his fellow scientists, but when Professor Harold Saxton Burr concluded from a five-year research project in 1945 that ‘all living organisms possess complex electromagnetic fields,’ the scientific community was more willing to accept his findings.

In his book, ‘The Secret of Life,’ published in 1929, Lakhovsky showed that all protoplasm (the living content of a cell that is surrounded by a plasma membrane) emanates radiation which oscillates throughout the body. He invented a healing device, a multiple wave oscillator, which used electromagnetic waves.

During the 1930’s, Professor Burr established that that electro-dynamic fields are responsible for the organisation of biological systems. He successfully demonstrated a field effect, which he named the L-Field (Life Field). The L-Field was a precursor to today’s more sophisticated theories of the human bio-information field.

In 1939, Semyon Kirlian, a Russian scientist, accidentally discovered that if an object on a photographic plate is connected to a source of high voltage, the electric field at the edges of the object create an image on the photographic plate. He developed a technique in which a subject is in direct contact with a film placed upon a metal plate charged with high voltage, high frequency electricity. Kirlian claimed that the resulting image was comparable to the human aura.


In the early 1950s, Dr Reinhold Voll and his collaborator Helmut Schimmel developed a device for locating acupuncture points electronically. He then began a search to identify correlations between disease states and changes in the electrical resistance of acupuncture points. His discoveries led to the Vega machine, widely used for diagnosing nutritional and health issues and allergy testing.

Bioresonance therapy

A technique developed in the 1970s called bioresonance therapy, continued in the tradition of Radiesthesia, but used the body’s own information instead of generated rates, and then fed this information back to the body, sometimes in the reverse order so that undesirable effects could be negated. The most famous bioresonance device was marketed as MORA-therapy, in which electrodes that emit alternating currents are applied to the patient’s skin in order to affect the information in the cells.

Dr Fritz-Albert Popp

The study of bioenergetics was further advanced in the 1970s by the discovery of biophotonic emissions — light emitted by living cells, by Dr Fritz-Albert Popp. He demonstrated that the light from living cells spread over a wide range of wavelengths. These ‘biophoton emissions’ provided a communication system for the transfer of information among the trillions of cells in an organism.

Recent decades

The pace of new learning and discovery continues unabated. The 1980s saw major advances in field-based biotechnologies, one of the most successful being the SQUID (Superconducting Quantum Interference Device) magnetometer. The SQUID is a highly sensitive imaging machine that maps the biomagnetic fields produced by physiological processes within the body.

In the past three decades:

  • Rupert Sheldrake, an English biologist, hypothesised the existence of morphogenetic fields, non-local, non-physical fields that explain where the blueprints that direct the formation of cells, embryos and all living things come from.
  • In 1988, Professor Valerie Hunt recorded the frequency of low voltage signals emanating from the body.
  • Nobel Prize winner Dr John Eccles laid the foundation for investigating neuro-independent consciousness (astonishing since Eccles is a neuroscientist!)
  • Professor William Tiller postulated the existence of subtle energies in his 1997 book, Science and Human Transformation. He claimed they act in concert with human consciousness and also manifest themselves in the practices of healers and other paranormal practitioners. He sees a connection between both physical and nonphysical consciousness and the natural phenomena.
  • Dr Robert Becker, an orthopaedic surgeon, looked into the relationship between human physiology and electricity. He used electricity and electro-magnetic fields to stimulate the mending of broken bones. He also determined the presence of a direct current electrical control system within the body. This system transmitted information through membranes of the glial cells (part of the support system for the nerves and central nervous system).
  • Information physicist Ervin Laszlo proposed the psi-force as a fifth force, additional to the known force fields (gravitation, electromagnetism, weak and strong force) to explain all existence.

Basically, it all comes to oscillation and information exchange. What was previously regarded as secret esoteric knowledge has suddenly become the subject of verifiable scientific research. The young disciplines of quantum biology and biophysics now embrace the study of quantum processes that underlie chemistry, but they are still on the fringe of the conventional medical community. Everything has its place, and those who continue to subscribe to a narrow materialistic view are becoming hopelessly obsolete.

Emerging Technologies

Nowadays many devices demonstrate the use of energy fields in medicine. They are found in clinics and hospitals all over the world. But increasingly the greatest breakthroughs in modern healthcare are coming from devices that are able to directly measure and influence energy and information fields.

Bioenergetic medicine stands at the frontiers of science. It encapsulates biology (the study of life) and physics (as in energy, the underlying animating force of life), and explains how these two disciplines interact. It is concerned with the flow and interaction of information fields within and between living organisms and between living organisms and their environment. This is quantum biology, a developing science, and it is moving in exciting new directions.

Electronic Biofeedback Devices

Various devices have been developed in the past half century which use the well-proven and accepted technology of low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses to stimulate body tissues. For instance, electronic devices such as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation) use electric currents to stimulate the nerves for therapeutic purposes. The TENS unit is usually connected to the skin using two or more electrodes.

Another is Scenar – ‘Self-Controlled Energy Neuro Adaptive Regulation,’ originally developed for the Russian space programme. The Scenar is a hand held biofeedback device which aims to teach the body to heal itself by stimulating the immune system. An electrical contact at one end of the device is placed against the skin which transmits a series of signals and measures the response. Each signal is only sent out when a change in response to the previous signal registers in the electrical properties of the skin. It is this ‘biofeedback’ feature that distinguishes it from TENS machines which send out a consistent continuous signal to

Both TENS and Scenar have proved effective for pain relief in clinical studies when in the hands of a professional practitioner. However, the most advanced device on the market is the AcuPearl, launched in 2015.

Why is the AcuPearl so superior? Because it doesn’t rely on just one modus operandi, like magnetism, but several. It delivers therapeutic effects safely and efficiently using:

  • Low frequency pulsed output of the magnetic and the light spectrums, delivering enhanced effects. The rate and duration of the pulses is an important factor in the AcuPearl technology.
  • The well-proven and accepted therapeutic technology of Pulsed Electro-Magnetic Field therapy (PEMF) which uses low frequency, short duration, low intensity magnetic pulses to stimulate body tissues.
  • Adaptive Resonance – a propriety method developed for AcuPearl which produces resonant interference patterns within the magnetic and light fields that are continually adapted in specific ways as the device is used.
  • Light – the Home Use range also has a central red LED (Light Emitting Diode) on the underside of the device which pulsates at a rapid rate designed to help open up the body’s energy channels and energize tissues.

Together the above forms the acronym ‘PEARL’. AcuPearl offers a full range of programs for soothing pain, calming the mind and addressing problems with tissues and joints. Visit for further details.


As Victor Hugo famously remarked, ‘Nothing is as powerful as an idea whose time has come.’ While bioenergetic healing is as old as civilisation itself, modern science is improving its scope and effectiveness.

Mainstream medicine has its place of course, but it is limited because it is based on traditional biology and chemistry which do not adequately explain many of the workings of the body. Why? Because they fail to recognise that the senior science, which underpins biology and chemistry, is physics. Physics explains why healing methods that use the information network in the body and activate its subtle energies can be effective, a subject about which conventional biology knows next to nothing.

The next few years will doubtless see significant progress. We are on the cusp of realising, at last, that our ancestors were no fools, and that bioenergetic healing should be taken very seriously.
