Research and Articles

For many decades, science has told us that subtle energies exist and that everything alive is an energy system. We have more and more research in hand from quantum physicists and medical professionals about the relationship between our energy system and our health, and leading visionaries like
Dr. Mehmet Oz say that energy medicine is the future of all medicine.

EQUILIBRIUM Energy + Education is the only wellness center dedicated to bringing leading-edge thinking and therapies in energy medicine to the Chicago area. On this page of our website, we will share a selection of research that quantifies and documents the specific effects of energy-based therapies, articles that explain the science behind them, and other related and useful information.
