The biofield is a large field of energy that surrounds and extends out from the body about 3-8 feet. No part of the energy system is visible to the human eye but the biofield can be felt with the hands, often through either pressure or temperature changes. (Some individuals can shift their perception to ‘see’ the color, texture and flow of energy in the Bio-Field.)
In 1994 a panel of scientists at the National Institute of Health, (NIH) chose the word “biofield”, to describe the field of energy and information that surrounds and interpenetrates the human body. Biofield is also defined as the fields surrounding living biological objects. In other traditions, this was known as the aura or auric field.
What is a Biofield practitioner? Biofield therapies are noninvasive therapies in which the practitioner explicitly works with a client's biofield (interacting fields of energy and information that surround living systems) to stimulate healing responses in patients Some of these therapies include:
In 2000, the NIH, Stanford University and Pacific Medical Center (San Francisco) funded a 3-year study of distant or non-local healing on patients with gliobastoma (brain tumors). They chose 10 healers nation-wide for the study and Candace MacNair was one of them.
