The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine [1] describes Energy Medicine as therapies that use forces that are, and are not, detectable with conventional scientific instrumentation. There are two broad subclasses:

  • Bioelectromagnetic-based therapies involve the unconventional use of electromagnetic fields, such as pulsed fields, magnetic fields, or alternating-current or direct-current fields.
  • Biofield therapies are intended to affect energy fields that purportedly surround and penetrate the human body.
