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 m

Recommends it for: People interested in the scientific side of energy healing
The Energy Healing Experiments was great. I loved the experiments (except the ones that involved intentionally inflicting pain on mice) and most of the ideas covered in the book were expressed in a straightforward and understandable manner.

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 more 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.
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.
This is a very readable book about the science of energy healing. It provides hope for the future of medicine and healing.
