The Biofield

What is the Biofield?

The biofield is a complex energetic system that surrounds and permeates living bodies. It encompasses the modern Western concept of the electromagnetic field as well as the ancient Eastern concept of ch'i, the vital life force that flows through the body and is at the heart of Eastern medicine and martial arts. 

The energy in the biofield is not static. It moves around and throughout the body. It may be helpful to describe its character as something like water. In its ideal state, it can be like a river that flows peacefully, yet is lively and strong – a perfect balance between tranquility and action. But it also can become stagnant like an overgrown pond, or it can crash and careen like the wildest rapids. Biofield Balancing brings the energy back to that perfect balance of the gently flowing river. 

Balancing the biofield taps into the energetic system in order to enhance both physical and emotional states through a feeling of great relaxation and well-being.
