Patients of energy healing practitioners have long testified to its effectiveness, however, these methods are grounded in more than the affirmations of millions of bettered people. Energy healing derives from science and scientific methods. Endorsed by hundreds of acclaimed scientists and notably, a former NASA physicist, energy healing is proven to reduce pain, speed healing in trauma-related injuries, positively influence surgery as well as the healing process of cancers, fibromyalgia, and arthritis among dozens of other auto-immune deficiencies. The science behind energy healing is imbedded in a physics principle, two proven measures of the human energy field, and a notable and telling experiment by Dr. John Zimmerman. In order to fully comprehend the scientific grounding of energy healing, one must first explore the concepts that led to the understanding of the human energy field.

A physics principle called entrainment was discovered in 1665 by a Dutch Physicist and Scientist named Christian Huygens. In his lifetime, he was credited for several breakthroughs in the field of physics and astronomy, notably Huygens’s Principle of secondary wave fronts, Light-Wave Theory, research on the rings of Saturn and revolutionizing pendulum clocks. It was through this research that Huygens noted that when two pendulums were swung from the same place but at different rates they eventually synched in order to swing together at the same rate. This phenomenon, deemed entrainment, is defined as the tendency for two oscillating bodies to adjust so that they vibrate in harmony. This concept is widely used in chemistry, engineering, and life sciences such as zoology. Entrainment, however, extends beyond science. For example, when a person walks into a room full of people laughing, his or her mood automatically lifts to align with the moods of the people already in the room. In energy healing, it is common for the practitioner to place their hands on a patient. The practitioner, in this way, opens their crown chakra and they, themselves, become a channel for positive energy to flow from their body and align with the energy of their patient. The patient’s energy effectively entrains with the practitioner’s energy through this contact and produces a calming, healing effect.

The energy of a person, the basis for all energy healing, can be charted in two scientifically proven ways. Neuroscience paved the way for the discovery of brain wave frequencies in 1908 by Austrian Psychiatrist Dr. Hans Berger. In the 1920s, Dr. Berger invented the Electroencephalograph (EEG) to measure the movement of brain waves. Through this study, six brain wave states were discovered. Lambda and Gamma are the highest frequencies, yet the most common frequencies, in descending order, are Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. In a twenty-four hour period, most people fluctuate between the four latter brain wave frequencies. As a brain wave frequency lowers, the effect is a reduction of stress, a settling calm, and a rebalancing and healing sensation. Thus, through energy healing, the brain wave frequency of the client is lowered through entrainment, among other methods, to open the body for healing to occur. Additionally, Dr. Willem Einthoven, a Dutch physiologist, discovered the electrical pulse generated by a beating heart and in 1924, he won a Nobel Prize for his creation of the Electrocardiogram (EKG). With the discovery of an electrical field generated by the brain and heart, the science of measuring and altering human energy frequencies became possible.

These scientific findings were applied in the 1980s when Dr. John Zimmerman measured the readings of the hands of energy healing practitioners at the University of Colorado of Medicine in Denver with a Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) magnetometer. Dr. Zimmerman measured the bio-magnetic field of several practitioner’s hands, both in a natural state and while conducting a healing session. The practitioner’s hands consistently produced a significantly higher bio-magnetic field when channeling healing energy and thus effectively engaged in entrainment with the two energies of the practitioner and the patient. Non-practitioner’s were also tested in the same way, yet, their bio-magnetic pulses failed to match those of the practitioner’s while they worked. Trained practitioners thus provide a service in healing that is unmatched in practice. Dr. Zimmerman’s experiment revolutionized the science of energy healing by proving with measurable results the effectiveness of energy healing.

Ludmila Goretsky was initiated into the sacred knowledge of energy healing by a Russion guru and for over fifteen years, she has been a trusted healer and teacher for her patients. She uses the science proven over hundreds of years of study in order to treat and prevent several health problems ranging from back and neck pains to anxiety and fatigue to cancer management. The findings in the scientific field only solidify the overwhelmingly positive declarations of Ludmila’s patients in the effectiveness of energy healing.
