My research background is the neuroanatomy of circadian rhythms and the central autonomic nervous system. My current research focus is developing scientific measures of ‘energy healing’ and other bioenergetic phenomena, and studying the exceptional experiences of healers. In working with healers, I have observed a unique magnetic field waveform associated with energy healing, with ‘charge-discharge’ characteristics of Reichian orgone. As a complement to my research, I have completed training as a practitioner in Healing Touch, an energy-based biofield therapy. I am active on the Council of the Society for Scientific Exploration, promoting the Frontier Sciences.
