The visible appeal of invisible energy fields

Description

Excerpt. One common theme of much modern pseudoscience is the idea that "power" or "energy" emanates from the human body and can be treated and manipulated. The Chinese concept of chi is based on it (SI, Summer 1988, July/August 1996, September/October 1996). We've seen the idea applied recently to therapy with Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR, see SI, January/February 1996) and Therapeutic Touch, which is taught in many university nursing schools and actually involves waving the hands over a patient without touching her (see SI, Winter 1993 and Spring 1993).
