The Bengston Energy Healing Method®: 9 Steps for Hands on Healing

Table of Contents

What is the Bengston Energy Healing Method®?

The Bengston Energy Healing Method®, is a cutting-edge approach to health and wellness developed by William Bengston, PhD, a researcher in the field of Sociology.

This energy healing approach is not based on any religious doctrine and is belief free. The Bengston Method uses hands on healing while a practitioner use something called Image cycling™ during the session.

During a Bengston Energy Healing Method® session, the practitioner places their hands on the client while visualizing a number of different scenarios. During this time, energy is passed from the hands of the practitioner to the individual who is receiving therapy.

Many conditions respond to the Bengston Energy Healing Method® such as anxiety, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, and depression just to name a few.

History of the Bengston Energy Healing Method®

I learned about the Bengston Energy Healing Method® by reading the book The Energy Cure by Dr. Bengston and also attending one of his workshops. 

The book goes into detail about Dr. Bengston meeting a psychic named Ben Mayrick. Dr. Bengston was a skeptic about psychics but Mayrick seemed to know things about Dr. Bengston that no one ever knew.

Intrigued, Dr. Bengston decided to follow Ben Mayrick to learn about his psychic and healing abilities. Mayrick claimed his psychic and healing powers were spontaneously obtained over the course of his life. 

Mayrick ended up starting a healing clinic and was able to heal a variety of illnesses simply by placing his hands on patients to help cure them of various ailments.

Mayrick reported that during a healing session, he could feel energy moving through his body, that the temperature in his hands was increasing, and that he could feel "hot spots" on the body of the patient, which indicated regions of the patient's body that required treatment.

These are the same sensations I feel when giving a Reiki session! In addition, Mayrick stated that the temperature in patient's hands increased as well.

Dr. Bengston, a researcher, was initially resistant to the concept of using alternative treatments, but he eventually came around. Dr. Bengston was first doubtful, but after going through his own healing process by Mayrick curing him of persistent back problems he had been experiencing all of his life, he became a believer! 

As Dr. Bengston shadowed Mayrick, he was about to figure out how to heal patients as well. Dr. Bengston started investigations on the efficacy of the healing method and conducting experiments.

Studies on the Bengston Energy Healing Method®

Dr. Bengston did research on the Bengston Method, using biological models as his source material. He created a test in which mice were injected with a mammary cancer cell line called H2712, which would result in the mouse's death within 27 days and had a 100% mortality rate. 

The experiment consisted of instructing a group of willing participants in the Bengston Energy Healing Method®. These participants gave their time voluntarily.

Following that, the volunteers wrapped their hands around the mouse cages while completing rapid image cycling™ . After 27 days, there was a 100% remission rate in all of the mice, indicating the mice were no longer affected by the cancer. 

Dr. Bengston was successful in finishing more than a dozen tests that were conducted in a total of six different laboratories. The experiments were duplicated in scientific laboratories using skeptics as volunteers to employ the energy method. 

A total of 33 mice were employed in all the studies, and the results showed an overall cure rate of 87.9% in the mice injected with a 100% mortality rate cancer. After the mice went through the treatment sessions, the mice were re-injected with the malignant cancer. The cancer did not develop in the mice treated by the Bengston Energy Healing Method®.

Dr. Bengston went on to teach about the Bengston Energy Healing Method®. He also performed many other studies on whether or not distance energy healing works (it does) and whether the Bengston energy could be transferred to objects such as cotton and water (it can). 

Dr. Bengston conducted research on healings that were done at a distance by recording the electroencephalograms (EEGs) of both the practitioners who performed the healings and the patients who received them.

It appeared that there was harmonic frequency coupling between the practitioner and the client, as well as EEG phase locking; these findings demonstrate that the efficiency of healings is NOT affected by distance.

In addition, Dr. Bengston was able to confirm that water and cotton appear to have the capacity to store the energy and heal those who ingest the water or hold the cotton in their hands.

So How Can You Do the Bengston Energy Healing Method®?

Remove belief and skepticism is the first step. The next is learning how to do image cycling™ which is the bedrock of the Bengston Energy Healing Method®.

The Steps for Image cycling™ 

  • Create a list of 20 items that you would like to manifest. To me it is easiest to choose 20 material items. Material items seem to be easier to visualize and help with the image cycling™.
  • The items you have on your list need to be things you actually want to own because the feeling of receiving the item is important for image cycling™. 
  • After you have made the list you need to meditate and visualize owning each of the 20 items for about 5-10 minutes per item. 
  • For example: Imagine owning a car that you have wanted for a long time. Use all five senses to totally immerse yourself in the sensation and conviction that you are the owner of the new car. Notice the smell, the sounds, how the leather feels against your skin, and the feeling of actually owning the car. 
  • Sit in this meditation, visualization, and feeling for 5-10 minutes. 
  • It is imperative that the visualization technique be practiced for an entire five minutes with each of the 20 items. This imprints the picture of the item in your mind. 
  • After you visualize each item, create a photo in your mind of each item. Then, move through the 20 photos in your mind sequentially, over and over again.
  • It takes a considerable amount of time to become proficient at image cycling™. On the other side, the more practice you put in, the easier the cycling will become.
  • Keep practicing the image cycling™ until you can go through all 20 items within seconds.

What happens during a Bengston Energy Healing Method® session?

During a healing session, the practitioner will place their hands on the patient or client and use rapid image cycling™ at the same time. Sessions can be performed in person or long distance. Lisa is able to perform Bengston Energy Healing sessions even when the patient is at a different location. Lisa creates an energetic link to the client in order to do the therapy. 

Can You Perform Self Treatment?

Dr. Bengston believes self treatments are not as effective. However, I used the Bengston method on myself and saw results. I added myself as being healed in my list of 20 items. I created a visualization of me running a race and tasting the sweat in my mouth, having 6 pack abs, and feeling fatigued once the race was done.

Doing the rapid image cycling™ alone may not heal you. But I transferred the energy to different objects in order to heal. 

I used both Reiki and the Bengston Energy Healing Method® on my bath water before taking baths each day. In addition, I gave Reiki and the Bengston Energy Healing Method to glasses of water which a I drank.

You can also become attuned in Reiki and give yourself Reiki self-treatments while doing rapid image cycling™ at the same time.

How long are the Bengston Healing Sessions?

Each session will last either sixty or thirty minutes, depending on your preference. During the session, you may feel tingling, warmth, or warmth all over your body. Dr. Bengston recommends one session per week. However, patients with more severe ailments should receive two sessions a week.
