Our featured guests, CHI Research Director Dr. Richard Hammerschlag and Biofield Tuning founder Eileen McKusick will bring us up-to-date on the findings of their recent research study on Biofield Tuning.
The CHI research team partnered with the Biofield Tuning Institute on a study designed to understand whether biofield practitioners can accurately and reliably sense similar information in the energy field surrounding the body. This was done by investigating whether 3 practitioners agree on the location of perturbations of 10 volunteers at 4 sites in the biofield.
Their findings were recently published in an article, Inter-Rater Agreement of Biofield Tuning: Testing a Novel Health Assessment Procedure.
What did the researchers and healers learn while engaging in this research study?
How does this study inform our understanding of Biofield Tuning and how it interacts with the human Biofield?
How will these findings impact the next research study?
Dr. Hammerschlag and Eileen will present the importance of their findings and what they may mean for future research. Additionally, they will discuss how the healer’s perspectives and understandings of their healing practice plays a critical role in the research process and how important these partnerships can be to advancing the science and understanding of healing.
