Science of Reconnective Healing

Scientists are excited by the ways in which Reconnective Healing seems to be unique. Scientific research has shown that Reconnective Healing is very different from Reiki and other types of energy healing in various ways. There are still many unanswered questions, but here are some of the results that have been obtained so far:

Reconnective Healing triggers significant changes in brain activity (via EEG scans) and heart activity (via ECG scans) of both practitioner and patient during healing sessions. In particular the practitioner’s ECG scan affects the patient’s EEG scan.
They have also measured changes in levels of gamma radiation absorption during sessions. Normally the body emits a harmless low level of gamma radiation due to the presence of potassium in the soft tissues. In Reconnective Healing sessions, both the practitioner and the patient absorb it. Separate research into various systems of bioenergy healing has shown a link between absorption of gamma radiation and healing.
Other measurement studies confirm that Reconnective Healing practitioners emit and transmit an increased amount of light and other electromagnetic frequencies around their bodies. Reconnective Healing practitioners can turn the frequencies on, increasing the amplitude and oscillation of magnetic frequencies around their bodies. These changes have been measured in the laboratory. In lab studies, Reconnective Healing practitioners have been shown to affect changes in DNA, helping plants to heal after being ‘shocked’ or damaged. The Reconnective Healing frequencies are strong and palpable. They can normally be felt through physical sensation tests and have been proven to be real in double blind, randomized studies. Other tests involving random event generators have shown that the Reconnective frequencies bring harmony to chaos. In the presence of these healing frequencies, unusual organised patterns occur in the normally random output of the machines.

Reconnective Healing elicits great interest from top doctors and medical researchers at hospitals and universities worldwide. Here is what some of the scientists conducting the research have to say.

What the Scientists say

William Tiller, PhD

Professor Emeritus of Stanford University’s Department of Materials Science
Fellow of the American Academy for the Advancement of Science
Movie: “What the Bleep”

With Reconnective Healing many kinds of energy and light are flowing through the healer and into the healee. In other words, what we’re talking about is bringing it beyond just what has been classically known as energy healing into a broader spectrum of energy, light and information.

“We did an experiment with one of Eric’s healing workshops in Sedona last February and the data that we gathered was quite remarkable. First of all, we found that when we started monitoring the room, which was about five hours before anyone – any of Eric’s crew, or Eric himself, or the healees – ever came into the room, we measured a higher gauge symmetry state than in normal reality. It was already a conditioned space! So something had happened before people even gathered. That space was set up, and that made it easy then for healers to work.

“As we continued to monitor that space, we found two days later the increase in this effective energy content was huge. Let me put it in terms that might be understandable. If we look at a normal reality and we say ‘What is the effective temperature increase for that normal space, how much must it go up to give the same excess energy content as was in Eric’s workshop two days after he started?’ [The answer is] The effective temperature increase for a normal space would have been 300 degrees Centigrade! That is huge!”

These amazing energy shifts have now been measured at 5 different Reconnective Healing seminars. Hear Dr Tiller explain this research himself at or read his White Paper on this work. Papers on his energy healing work, including distance healing, can be found at his website. His work with Reconnective Healing is also discussed in his latest book, Psychoenergetic Science: A Second Copernican-Scale Revolution.

Gary Schwartz, PhD

Professor of Psychology, Surgery, Medicine, Neurology, and Psychiatry
Director, Center for Frontier Medicine in Biofield Science
Director, Laboratory for Advances in Consciousness and Health
University of Arizona
Author of “The Living Energy Universe”

At Canyon Ranch he presented his research on cutting edge energy healing
modalities and stated that they had found Reconnective Healing to be the
most effective energy healing of all those studied so far.
Reconnective Healing is also featured prominently in the documentary The
Living Matrix , which shows Dr. Eric Pearl releasing a young Greek boy from
the symptoms of cerebral palsy in just a few minutes.

Prof Schwartz’s team conducted four controlled experiments to determine whether Reconnective Healing energy was something basic science in the laboratory could prove. In the studies Eric Pearl and two of his students served as senders while volunteers acted as receivers. The first test showed that blindfolded subjects could detect the energy up to 83 percent of the time. The second showed that the energy functions like an electromagnetic signal The third showed that the sender’s heart wave, measured by electrocardiogram (EKG) imprints itself on the receiver’s brainwave, measured by electroencephalogram (EEG).

“Most significant in this third experiment,” Schwartz says, “is that whether or not the receiver was consciously aware of the energy, the EKG imprinted just the same, so there is unconscious energy detection that can be recorded electromagnetically.” The fourth experiment recorded the brainwaves and eye movements of 30 subjects under three different conditions. The lab is still analyzing data from the fourth experiment.

In another study, Dr Schwartz focused his research attendees of Reconnective Healing seminars. He conducted baseline energy healing studies which measured people’s abilities to work with, feel, transmit and receive light and other electromagnetic frequencies before and after they attended the seminar. What they found was dramatic. Of the more than 100 people who participated in the study, all walked out with permanently expanded and new electromagnetic abilities following the Reconnective Healing seminar, whether they had never studied healing or if they were masters/teachers of the various energy healing techniques known today.


Professor Konstantin G Korotkov PhD

Deputy Director of Saint-Petersburg Federal Research Inst of Physical Culture
Professor of Computer Science and Biophysics at Saint-Petersburg Federal University of Informational Technologies
Member of the Federal Russian University Scientific Board on new medical technologies

While Dr Tiller has been measuring the incredible field effects that occur at seminars and Dr Schwartz has been focusing his research on those who attend those seminars, Dr Korotokov has studied both of these things. Using his proprietary methodologies and cutting edge imaging and measurement devices, his research corroborates the work of both Tiller and Schwartz. More specifically, he has also measured and documented a very large field effect at these seminars, calling them ‘coherence effects’, that occur during the teaching of the seminars. These effects are most dramatic and powerful whenever a new concept or exercise is taught during the seminars, and these teachings result in dramatic spikes in both the intensity and size of the field in the room. He theorizes these ‘coherence effect’ are what might be allowing normal people to gain these new abilities and become master healers in just one weekend.

Additionally, Dr Korotkov’s work demonstrates that most of those who are simply sitting in the seminar room itself receive positive health effects. In fact, it is not uncommon for people to have physical and other healings just from sitting in the seminar room during the class!

Professor Korotkov also works extensively with Olympic Athletes in Russia. For details of the amazing research results he obtained, giving evidence of enhanced physical and mental performance after Reconnective Healing, and even rapid healing of a leg fracture.

“I am a very traditional doc,” O’Connell says. “I teach internal medicine. I’m on the faculty of a medical school. I’m one of the Deans. I’m definitely not out there on the fringe. And this definitely rattled my construct of how the body works – how disease works. What I personally witnessed with my own patients definitely got me wondering, where does all this fit? There is definitely a mind-body connection – nobody can deny that, whether you are an integrative medicine person or a traditional western medicine practitioner. The mind and the body are one. And anybody who denies that is not paying attention.”

O’Connell recalls observing firsthand one of Eric Pearl’s healing sessions with a patient who had serious chronic medical problems which were going to require surgery. O’Connell says that as he watched Pearl “waving his hands around over her,” he witnessed a dramatic improvement in her condition.
