Can we heal ourselves naturally using the subtle energy field that surrounds our body? In many instances, the answer is yes. Biofield therapies are an exciting discipline using our biofield or aura. Let’s take a deeper look at biofield therapies.
The energy system that surrounds your body is comprised of three elements: chakras, meridians, and the biofield or aura. Meridians are lines of energy that run throughout your body. Acupuncture utilizes meridians for healing. Chakras are spinning wheels or energy located through the center of your body from top to bottom.
In contrast, the biofield is a large field of energy that extends out from the body by approximately 8 feet. It surrounds the entire body. While the biofield is invisible to the human eye it can be felt through temperature or pressure changes. Some practitioners can perceive shapes or colors, but that it not typical.
If you have a session with a biofield practitioner, you will most likely lie comfortably on a massage table, which allows the practitioner to assess the status of your biofield. They will send energy through their hands, sometimes by direct contact with your body or sometimes by putting their hands near you without touching your body.
Biofield therapies address your overall physical, mental, and emotional health. It is often used for stress reduction. Some people use biofield therapy for the prevention of problems.
