Biofield Tuning Disclaimer
Biofield Tuning and its associated processes should not be relied upon as health, medical, psychological, or other professional advice of any kind or nature.
Biofield Tuning is an energy medicine* method developed by Eileen McKusick, an author, researcher and practitioner, (www.biofieldtuning.com) for self-healing and wellness that uses sound waves produced by specialized tuning forks in the biofield that surrounds the human body.
Energy medicine methods, such as Biofield Tuning, are designed to assess where the body’s energies are blocked, trapped, or not in harmony and then correct the flow of these energies by aligning the body’s energies to boost health and vitality. The theory of energy medicine methods is that the flow and balance of the body’s electromagnetic and subtle energies are important for physical, spiritual, and emotional health, and for fostering overall well-being.
You understand and accept that when utilizing Biofield Tuning the practitioner is not “diagnosing” or “treating” the physical body, which is the domain of the medical field and other allied health care professionals, but instead is connecting to the energy or subtle “bodies” of the client that make it possible to manifest a change or transformation, which is then experienced directly by the client. You understand there is a distinction between “healing” using Biofield Tuning and the practice of medicine or any other licensed health care practice.
Although Biofield Tuning appears to have promising emotional, spiritual, and physical health benefits, it has yet to be fully researched by the Western academic, medical, and psychological communities. Therefore, Biofield Tuning may be considered experimental and the extent of its effectiveness, as well as its risks and benefits, are not fully known. Energy medicine methods such as Biofield Tuning are considered “alternative” or “complementary” to the healing arts licensed in the United States. Further, energy medicine methods such as Biofield Tuning are self-regulated and the State of Massachusetts does not license, certify, or register Biofield Tuning practitioners.
Body-Centered Healing Agreement
An important aspect of my approach to healing involves work with the body. Therefore, it is important to take note of the following items. In addition to my training in Biofield Tuning, I also practice and utilize techniques learned from aromatherapy and Tantra.
Body-Centered healing involves the release of feelings that have been trapped in the body. At times, this requires the use of touch. The touch is non-sexual in nature and is used to bring awareness to an area, or to be used as support in a nurturing or healing way.
Touch often elicits feelings, which I will encourage you to speak about. It is important for you to discuss any discomfort you experience. I will ask for your permission before I touch you and you are always free to say no at any time. I will honor and respect your boundaries.
Any intervention involving the body will always be with the client’s explicit permission and with the client’s safety in mind.
*Energy medicine is a collective term used that refers to a variety of energy techniques, processes, and methods based on the use, modification, and manipulation of energy fields that look at imbalances within an individual’s energy system as well as the energetic influence of thoughts, beliefs, and emotions on the body.
