Energy Field Work and the Journey of the Massage Therapist
I taught a class once back in the early 90’s at a large massage school out West. The classroom was filled with 48 students, and nearly 33% of them were not interested in learning about Rolfing. I asked them why, they replied it wasn’t energy work like cranial sacral therapy or Reiki. I laughed at these newbies, because they had no idea how powerful Dr. Rolf’s energy field was purported to be, a fact that I emphasize in all my massage continuing education classes. There were rumors that when Dr. Rolf shook your hand, you felt it in your feet.
Now, I teach massage continuing education classes around the country, in aAï¿½culture that has a type of societal shock when it comes to to the concept of biological energy. Mae Wan Ho one of the leading quantum physicists of our time, has demonstrated that the human organism is a liquid crystalline matrix. We understand as a planet what is meant by an energy crisis, but the forces of nature and all our new technologies are constantly bombarding us with this invisible energy.
Way back in the early 1900 Dr. Harold Saxton Burr, ï¿½ who was E. K. Hunt Professor Emeritus, Anatomy at Yale University School of Medicine. Dr. Burr was a member of the faculty of medicine for over forty-three years. From 1916 to the late 1950’s, he published, either alone or with others, more than ninety-three scientific papers on the concept that all living things are molded and controlled by electrodynamic fields, which could be measured and mapped with standard voltmeters. Illness both mental and physical deviated from standard measurements of healthy subjects.
Why was his 20 years of research passed over by mainstream medicine? Well, look no further than the explosive growth of the budding Pharmaceutical industry that dominates to this day the concept of dealing with every type of illness known to our species.
