Recommends it for: those seeking scientific validation of alternative healing modalities
Shelves: energy-medicine
heady book, with validating peer reviewed studies that could explain why energy medicine, from chiropractic, acupuncture to Reiki and polarity therapy could work. Not worth owning, but great to review and restore our faith in laying on of hands healing.

WHEW! Now that was a difficult book to read...although the parts I could understand were quite interesting! Looking for my next CST-oriented book to read.

James Oschman spared no time and effort writing this book. His book is a true testament of his amazingly huge knowledge of the subject.
I must admit that I couldn't always follow that biochemistry in the book since I'm an engineer, but the physics part was more then interesting and easy to follow.
Oschman is truly passionate about the subject, and you can feel that all the way. I couldn't help myself to share this passion, and let others around me taste that as well.
The book is well structured, st

This book is basically a small textbook disguised as a 350-page paperback. It took me over a month to read diligently through it all, but as an alternative health practitioner (chiropractor) I stand by its worth.

Oschman addresses both the scientific research and philosophical principles of science in order to argue for a paradigm shift in medicine that will address the movement of energy into and out of our bodies and how that affects our biology and our health. He argues that when you marry th

Oschman's _Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis_ delivers nicely on its title, and it's a fascinating, frustrating read. It is frustrating on one hand because the research is so incomplete in some areas -- so much we don't yet know. It is frustrating on the other hand because so much of the medical establishment has woodenly refused to acknowledge the facts that are painfully well-established, presumably for fear of being associated with quacks.
But it turns out that on some issues, the so-call

I enjoyed and needed this book at the time I read it. The "scientific" aspects of energy medicine were all but lost in the mire of personalized ideologies and myth surrounding practices of energy sharing at the time. They still are for the most part. This book helped in the grounding of some of the modalities, the dispelling of others, and gave me a basis to begin differentiating the two with something more than my "gut." Worth the effort to push thru the "research" format to get to the gems ben ...more

This book is a must-read for any intelligent person who cares about health. It, and several other books, is changing the way I understand how our bodies work. Oschman gives the evidence for the power of frequency oscillations in shaping our health in an objective way; he has no personal agenda he is pushing. It is radical and revolutionary.

Good to know the wonderful universe.

Learned about important concepts to earthing, essential oils, reiki, qi-gong, the important medium that is water.
Everything leads back the Nature.

Detailed historic and scientific basis for proof energy healing works - not that I had any doubts. A call to researchers to consider new possibilities.
