How Do Energy Therapies Work? Lecture with Jim Oschman, PhD
One of the most powerful tools we have in our efforts to spread the word about the safety, effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of energy therapies is our ability to explain how and why these approaches work so well for so many different health conditions. Experience has shown that successful clinical trials and case studies are far more convincing if we can explain how the therapies produce the results they produce. Study of the mechanisms involved in alternative therapies, from A to Z (Acupuncture to Zero Balancing) has been Dr. Oschmans focus for some 35 years. After writing three popular books on the scientific basis of energy medicine and about 120 articles in some of the leading peer-reviewed scientific journals as well as in leading journals on alternative medicine, and presenting workshops in 26 countries around the world, he has been recognized as one of the leaders in the efforts to bring these therapies into the mainstream. His focus is describing the science behind complementary and integrative therapies in ways that are both understandable and scientifically correct.
In this workshop, he will provide experiences and information that explain and enhance important therapeutic tools such as sensitivity and intuition, as well as the nature and significance of the energies that are emitted and sensed by human hands. As our understandings of what is taking place during energy therapies increases, our potential to produce beneficial results increases. This is the path to the medicine of the future!
Professor James L. Oschman, PhD is the author of Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis and Energy Medicine in Therapeutics and Human Performance, which give the most skeptical academic scientists a theoretical basis for exploring the physiology and biophysics of energy medicines. He holds degrees in Biophysics and Biology from the University of Pittsburgh. He has worked in major research labs around the world. These include Cambridge University in England, Case-Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, the University of Copenhagen, Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, where he was on the faculty, and the Marine Biological Laboratory in Woods Hole, where he was a staff scientist. His many scientific papers have been published in the worlds leading journals. And, to learn about the theories and practices underlying complementary methods, Jim has both taught and attended classes at various schools around the world, and experienced a wide range of bodywork techniques. This has brought Jim some distinctions, including acting as President of the New England School of Acupuncture, and a Distinguished Service Award from the Rolf Institute.
