Energy, or bio-energetic medicine, refers to therapies which use an energy field - electrical, magnetic, sonic or acoustic - to screen for or treat health conditions by detecting imbalances in the body's energy fields and then correcting them.

Electricity for healing dates back to 2750BC when people used electric eels.  Magnetite or loadstone was used by the ancient Egyptians, Chinese and later by the Greeks.  The Bible and other spiritual texts describe healing such as the laying on of hands (which is still practised in some churches).  Reiki and Quantum Touch are some of the modern versions of this technique.

Modern medicine has been using a form of energy medicine since the discovery of X-rays by Roentgen.  Electrocardiographs (ECG's), Electroencephalograms (EEG's), X-rays, Computerised Tomography (CT) and MRI scans are now in common use for diagnostic purposes.

Over the last few decades scientists have developed methods to measure the subtle but important energy fields within and around the human body.  These fields were once considered non-existent by mainstream medicine.  Bio-energetic/energy medicine has the potential to improve the treatment of diseases which do not respond to conventional clinical treatment.

Integrative medical practitioners are currently using one or more of the following energy medicine modalities:

Acupuncture (AP)
  - Anthroposophical Medicine
  - Homotoxicology (utilises homeopathic principles)
  - Biopuncture (injecting homeopathics into AP points)

Rife Resonator Therapy
Pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEFT) - Bemer
QX/SCIO/Indigo biofeedback
EAV devices - Vegatest
Low energy laser treatment
Cranio-electrical stimulation (CES)
Polarised light therapy - Bioptron
Neurofeedback (also known as EEG biofeedback or Neurotherapy)
