EEG AMPLITUDE, BRAIN MAPPING, & SYNCHRONY IN & BETWEEN A BIOENERGY PRACTITIONER & CLIENT DURING HEALING
A controlled case study was conducted with a bioenergy practitioner and a client during a healing experience. Experimental effects were documented with both participants measured simultaneously using a 24-channel digitized EEG evaluations under four experimental and control conditions: relaxation, meditation, healing-at-a-distance, and healing (client present). Clinical observations and/or ratings of each condition were made by both participants
Brain maps of the bioenergy practitioner across conditions indicated the presence of a strong right hemispheric activation pattern compared to the left. High amplitude alpha rhythms (up ro 100 uV) were observed in the left and right occiputs, and high amplitude beta and gamma rhythms were also present in die right occiput and in other areas of die right hemisphere during all conditions, but especially during relaxation and meditation. Healing at-a-distance and healing (client present) were associated with high frequency, high amplitude beta and gamma rhythm localized in the right frontal area, together with low amplitude left occipital and central them rhythm.
Intra-and inter-personal synchrony between bipolar electrode pairs was determined for each condition. Beta, alpha, theta, and gamma synchrony in the bioenergy practitioner was higher and less variable than that in the client in all conditions, and was highest and most stable during healing-at-a-distance. Interpersonal synchrony was highest during healing, especially in alpha frequencies between left occipital areas of bioenergy practitioner and client.
