The origin of Bio-Energy

Bio-Energy healing or laying of hands is the oldest known healing in the world. For thousands of years throughout the different cultures around the world people have been healing themselves and others with their hands using energy.

  • In China the healing source is referred to chi and was speculated to be associated with the blood and how it circulates throughout the body. In the book of changes, “I Ching”, 3 types of life energies were identified; cosmic, earth and human.
  • In India, energy is referred to as prana and is associated with the breath.
  • Other cultures refer to energy as the source, life force, or astro light.
  • In Greece, Pythagoras; the greek philosopher and mathematician referred to the source as the luminous body of healing, while others believed that the source of healing was cosmic energy, the force that sustains life in the universe.

In 1970 a new form of Bio-Energy healing emerged from Slovania by a man named Zdenko Domancic. Domancic uses a series of techniques, movements and specific protocol that facilitate healing by re-balancing the body.



"Bio-energy boosts the immune system, spreading information of optimum performance to all cells, and enables the body to heal itself. Every cell in your body has the picture of the healthy body. Every cell holds the information of the entire system. A single cell could reproduce the entire body under the perfect circumstances. All that a bio-therapist has to do is restore the original environment. in essence, it is not the the bio-therapist who heals. He just fixes your energy field. It is the body that heals itself."

There have been many incarnations developed since the Domancic Method was introduced. Each one offering variations on techniques, methodologies and protocols, yet they all have a common thread that binds them together, the use of the source of healing; Bio-Energy or life force energy.

Plexus Bio-energy is one example of a variation from the original Bio-energy healing that was introduced in Ireland. In 1992, Michael D'Alton received a Bio-Energy treatment that cured him of his asthma and eczema. This changed his life and he began his training with Plexis Bio-energy in 1993. Two years later, Michael developed a Bio-Energy healing diploma course and in 2005 he moved to Canada where he established Michael DAlton's School of Bio-Energy Healing.

What is Bio Energy Healing?

Bio-Energy is a natural and gentle healing that successfully treats physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances in the body, by utilizing specialized techniques, hand positions and protocols. The use of these methods by an experienced Bio-Energy practitioner helps to restore and re-balance the body systems by stimulating and boosting the energy and immune system that facilitate healing.

All organisms are energy beings or systems which are in constant interaction with our environment and other organisms. Our energy system starts with the energy centers within the body, which also extend outward beyond the body creating an invisible shield or electromagnetic field. Bio-Energy refers to the electromagnetic field that surrounds and flows within the physical body.

There are 7 main energy centres or chakras located throughout the body starting at the base of the spine and moving upwards to the top of the head. The root chakrais the first chakra at the base of the spine, preceded by the sacral, solar plexus, heart, throat, brow and crown chakras (see inset diagram). Each chakra has specific qualities and attributes; such as color, element, and are associated with glands and specific emotions.

For example, the root chakra is associated with the color red; is considered the earth element; is associated with the adrenal glands, and emotes the feeling of being grounded.

All chakras are involved in regulating the flow of energy throughout the body, so it is important that all chakras are balanced and working together for optimal health

Bio-Energy treatments focus on Health by facilitating the body’s natural ability to heal itself through re-balancing the energy system.
