Практика лечения на расстоянии упоминается во многих древних культурах и системах врачевания. Описание методик лечения на расстоянии встречается в древних манускриптах Китая, Индии, Буддийских книгах, в Аювердической литературе, в очень эффективной системе Цигун и т.д. Более 100 народов во всем мире используют технику энергетического лечения.

В наше время проведено довольно много серьезных исследовательских работ, доказывающих высокую эффективность воздействия на расстоянии при лечении таких заболеваний как депрессия, стресс, фобии, диабет, боли в двигательном аппарате, хронической головной боли, при гипертонической болезни, различных кожных заболеваниях, при снижении избыточного веса, астме и т.д.
С другой стороны, у всякого нормального человека возникает вопрос: » Все прекрасно, но как это работает? Как можно воздействовать на расстоянии в тысячи километров? «.
Скажу вам сразу, что в этом вопросе нет единого мнения и строгого научного доказательства. Однако в мире    есть масса явлений, которые не имеют на сегодняшний день научного обоснования, но при этом они происходят, и мы принимаем их как должное.

На расстоянии вылечивают – это факт доказанный!

Существует несколько теорий, объясняющих физическую сущность дистанционного лечения.

1. Молекулярно-резонансная теория

Суть этой теории сводится к тому, что все предметы и живые существа в нашем мире излучают электромагнитные волны разной частоты, которые передаются на расстоянии. Болезнь изменяет нашу обычную частоту, и мы ощущаем дискомфорт. В процессе лечения хиллер посылает электромагнитные волны (наподобие радио или телевизионных сигналов) с частотой, близкой к частоте данного человека с определенным заболеванием. При получении этих волн наступает эффект резонанса. Это приводит к ответной реакции организма и наступает коррекция состояния больного.
Косвенным доказательством этой теории является работа
общепризнанных и широко используемых диагностических инструментов
MRI ( Magnetic Resonance Imaging ), EKG (electro-cardiograms ), EEG,
TENS и т.д.

2. Теория Энергетического баланса

Эта теория базируется на энергетической теории строения человека (энергетические меридианы, чакры, аура). Все болезненные нарушения у человека связаны с энергетическими нарушениями в его теле и с нарушениями, связанными с течением жизненной энергии Ци(Qi).
При лечении хиллер концентрируется на очистке, восстановлении и балансировке энергетики больного.

3. Теория универсального пространства

По этой теории весь окружающий нас мир представляет собой единое когерентное энергетическое поле и каждый из нас может посылать энергетические модели в этом пространстве на любые расстояния. Посылая нужную для выздоровления энергетическую модель, хиллер может вызвать нужную реакцию в организме больного, приводящую к выздоровлению.

Я представил вам несколько обобщенных теорий, объясняющих массу положительных примеров успешного лечения на расстоянии, но еще раз хочу подчеркнуть, что наличие фактов, гораздо важнее теорий их объясняющих.

Выздоровление после сеансов лечения на расстоянии наступает — и это самый главный факт, не требующий теоретических доказательств!

Ниже приведен список научных источников, в которых описаны достоверные эксперименты по изучению  дистанционного лечения. Здесь можно найти массу подтверждений эффективности лечения на расстоянии различного рода заболеваний.
