Biofield therapy refers to a group of therapies that effect change in people’s health and well-being by interacting with their biofield. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) defines biofields as “energy fields that purportedly surround and penetrate the human body”[i]. As was explained in my previous article, Is Energy Medicine a Part of Your Healthcare?, there is increasingly convincing evidence that each human being is comprised of an energetic system that is highly integrated with the physical body, emotional systems and spiritual being of the individual. This will not necessarily be news to anyone with a spiritual practice. There are many ways to tap into this energetic system in a therapeutic manner in order to enhance both physical and emotional wellness. More commonly known therapies include acupuncture and homeopathy, but there is a rapidly developing group of therapies that can collectively be called biofield therapies.

Energy Medicine refers to a broad range of therapies that all have one thing in common. They all consider that the human being consists of a physical body capable of thoughts and emotions, but also has an energetic system that supports and nourishes the physical, emotional and mental, with all of these systems being tightly integrated.
