"Energy Medicine: Integrating the Art and Science"
Alternative and complementary therapies are now the fastest growing
sector of our health care system. Fundamental to many of these
techniques is an appreciation of energetics that has been deemed
"unapproachable" from the scientific perspective. However, modern
research is rapidly changing this picture by revealing a plausible
basis for therapies that predate our current biomedical paradigms. We
now know that measurable energy fields exist within and around cells
and organisms. The sources of these fields are understood, and we know
that they have physiological importance. A common denominator to the
artful and medical application of this information is the remarkable
sensitivity of cellular and molecular processes to tiny
electromagnetic fields, whether produced by therapists or by
therapeutic devices. Medical research and the experiences of energy
therapists are converging on this point, with profound implications
for healthcare and biomedical research.
With a background in academic cell biology and biophysics, Dr. Oschman
has become a leading authority on the scientific investigation of
complementary and alternative therapies. His book, "Energy Medicine:
The Scientific Basis", (Churchill Livingstone, Edinburgh, 2000) is
already a classic because it provides a plausible basis for a wide
range of therapeutic modalities that are now entering mainstream
medicine. Jim has conducted research in leading laboratories and
published some 30 articles in the world's leading scientific journals,
as well as an equal number in CAM journals. His new book, "Energy
Medicine in Therapeutics and Human Performance" will be published by
Butterworth Heineman, Oxford, in March of 2003.

About the Center for Frontier Sciences:
The Center facilitates scientific study in areas such
as complementary and alternative medicine,
bioelectromagnetics, unresolved issues in quantum
physics, the mind-matter interrelationship,and new energy
As an integral part of a major university, the Center maintains high
standards in reviewing new work, while remaining open to ideas that
may go beyond currently dominant paradigms.
Frontier Perspectives, the Center's semi-annual journal, publishes
peer-reviewed scientific papers, Invited Opinions, BookReviews,
and news of organizations, meetings, and other publications
of interest. A cumulative index is posted on the Center's website at:
