Brief Introduction to Esogetic Colorpuncture Therapy — A System of Wholistic Acu-Light Therapy: Theory and Case Studies by Manohar Croke and Akhila/Dr. Rosemary Bourne

Abstract: Esogetic Colorpuncture Therapy (ECT) is a new system of light therapy based on concepts of acupuncture. Developed by Peter Mandel, a German naturopath and acupuncturist, this system offers a systematic method of using colored light applied as a stimulation at acupoints in order to facilitate the healthy exchange of information between the physical and subtle bodies, to clear the energetic remnants of trauma and to support the evolution of the individual. The authors briefly discuss the theories and research which have served as a basis for development of this work, and present three case studies to demonstrate the wholistic healing potential of this unique healing modality.


Assessing Kirlian Phenomena via Energy Emission Analysis (EEA): An Interview with Originator Peter Mandel

by Manohar Croke & Akhila/Dr. Rosemary Bourne

Abstract: The use of Kirlian photography to evaluate energetic disturbances has been a topic of research since the early part of this century. After two decades of research, German naturopath and acupuncturist Peter Mandel developed Energy Emission Analysis (EEA), a method of correlating and assessing physical and psychological symptoms via Kirlian emission phenomena. In this interview, he explains how he started working with the Kirlian camera and describes some of the basic principles of his approach, including his emission “topography.” A case study in which Kirlian assessment was used during the course of treatment is included.
