Energy Therapies

A generic term for a format of alternative medicine that uses an energy field (i.e., electrical, magnetic, sonic, acoustic, microwave, infrared) to screen for, or allegedly treat, health conditions by detecting imbalances in the body’s energy fields and then correcting them. The patient/client is evaluated by electroacupuncture biofeedback, in which a device measures electrical resistance at acupuncture points that correspond to specific organs and tissue, known as “control measurement points”.
