Graduate Programs in Integral Health
– Specialization in Life Physics
Studies and Research in Subtle Energy
The degree programs in Life Physics emphasize the body component in the tridimensional model of human life (aka the body-mind-spirit interconnection) upon which CIHS was founded. The tridimensional theory does not view the body as an isolated dimension of the human being. Life Physics focuses on objective physical measurement, instrumentation, and energy theories aimed at elucidating the physical manifestations of the body-mind-spirit model. Life Physics strives to not lapse into unidimensional (unilateral) reductionism, which seems to be characteristic of conventional, mainstream science, including modern medicine.
The subtle energies theory refers to ontological features of the human life, which fall outside the scope of what has been so far accepted by mainstream scientists. However, it has been theorized that scientific studies of the meridian points and ki energy, for instance, may help prove the existence of new forms of energy which obey their own set of laws and yet interact with types of energy already accepted by conventional physics.
The aim of Life Physics programs is to prepare students to conduct scholarly research into the field of subtle energy.
The MA Integral Health Life Physics specialization degree requirements, quarter units and required core courses are the same as the MA Integral Health program. To qualify for the specialization in Life Physics, students take specific elective courses designed to provide the graduate student with a solid foundation in research methodologies, anatomy and physiology, meridian theory of traditional Chinese medicine and bio-energetic sciences..
The Integral Health Specialization in Life Physics Ph.D. program provides the student with advanced instruction in related research fields, such as bio-electromagnetic and electro-dermal studies, Apparatus for Meridian Identification (AMI), meridian research, bio-energetic phenomena, and biofeedback as well as advanced research methodology in quantitative research.
The PhD IH-LP specialization degree requirements, quarter units and required base core courses are the same as the PhD Integral Health program. To qualify for the specialization in Life Physics, students take specific elective courses designed to provide the graduate student with a solid foundation in research methodologies, anatomy and physiology, meridian theory of traditional Chinese medicine and bio-energetic sciences.
