Gary Schwartz, PhD of University of Arizona’s Human Energy Systems Laboratory conducted a series of carefully designed, controlled scientific experiments with Dr. Pearl and other Reconnective Healing Practitioners to determine whether the Reconnective energy was something measurable and real in the laboratory. Dr. Pearl and several of his students served as senders while volunteers acted as receivers in the studies.
The multiple studies showed that the Reconnective Healing energy functions like an electromagnetic signal.
One study set out to examine what transpires when Reconnective Healing is applied to plants. Plant leaves were selected and matched for size and consistency. What was known was that when leaves are separated from their life source (stem or trunk) they die. When leaves are in this process of dying, they actually bleed—not blood or fluid—but light.
Light leaves the organisms as they die. In each experiment, the control leaf in the pair was left to die naturally. The other matched leaf was subject to one of several healing modalities.
The naturally extinguishing leaf died in seven to ten days. The other leaf with energy applied lasted approximately 90 days–eight to ten times longer after receiving Reiki, Qi Gong or Reconnective Healing.
But here was the interesting distinction: With Reiki, the leaf’s recovery started fast and then faded; with Qi Gong, it started slower but lasted longer.
However, when Reconnective Healing was applied, it started faster and stayed MUCH longer helping to keep the leaves alive as long as 90 days.
