Among the most common misconceptions about yoga is that it’s just another form of exercise. Perhaps this is because people often see yogis stretching and doing pretzel-like poses. However, the reality is that the benefits of yoga are more encompassing than just the physical. And, thanks to modern technology and functional MRI scans, we’re now able to see how regular practice affects your brain.
Bioresonance is a little-known yet powerful therapy that taps into your body’s energy field. Expert practitioner, Lowell Riezouw, is now offering Bioresonance therapy at the London Clinic of Nutrition.
What is bioresonance?
You are an energetic being, and bioresonance uses energy to locate imbalances in your body.
The easiest way to understand this is to think back to the experiments you used to do with magnets at school. Remember you would take a magnet, cover it with a sheet of paper, and then scatter iron filings on top of the paper? The iron filings would form a clear pattern, reflecting the magnetic field.
You could take the magnet away, but as soon as you placed it back under the paper, the iron filings would arrange themselves once more. If there were any disturbance in the pattern, you’d know something was up with the magnetic field.
Your body is no different. Every single one of your cells is made of energy, and that means your body has its own magnetic or ‘biomagnetic’ field. Much like iron filings in disarray, imbalances in this biomagnetic field can contribute to symptoms.
Using the same metaphor, we can see that the conventional approach to healthcare tries to rearrange the iron filings to reinstate order. Bioresonance looks to the body’s biomagnetic field to resolve the underlying cause of a disturbance.
How does bioresonance work?
Bioresonance works by measuring the biomagnetic field or frequencies of your body to identify the source of any disturbances.
It is a gentle, non-invasive therapy. Electrodes are placed on your skin, and these are linked to a machine that emits electromagnetic signals. The machine sends a gentle impulse to your body. If your cells are balanced and healthy, the machine will read a clear signal coming back. If there’s any disturbance in your body’s biomagnetic field, the returning signal will be much weaker.
One frequency might mean there’s an issue in your liver cells, for example, while another might point towards a virus or allergen.
The machine is programmed with thousands of different frequencies so that it can recognise what the various returning signals mean. One frequency might mean there’s an issue in your liver cells, for example, while another might point towards a virus or allergen.
As more and more signals come back, the system starts to create a picture of what’s going on in your body. This information, coupled with a comprehensive case history and an assessment of your current symptoms, can help to uncover underlying and previously undetectable reasons for stubborn health issues.
As well as pinpointing the problem, bioresonance can also be used to restore balance. The machine can emit counter-frequencies to help reset the body’s biomagnetic field, making it strong and stable once more.
This therapy—in conjunction with other treatment approaches such as nutritional therapy and Functional Medicine—can be transformative.
What is bioresonance used for?
There is a small but emerging body of research on the benefits of bioresonance. Studies so far suggest that it can help with:
Fibromyalgia. A Russian study compared two groups of fibromyalgia patients. One group received manual therapy and massage as a treatment, while the other received manual therapy and massage, plus bioresonance. The group receiving bioresonance experienced a quicker improvement in their symptoms, and the therapeutic effect lasted for longer too .
Overtraining and fatigue. Another study of 60 burnt-out athletes found that those who received bioresonance therapy experienced greater recovery . It appeared that the bioresonance helped to normalise blood pressure and rebalance the athletes’ stress response.
Stomach pain. In a small German study that compared 10 people receiving bioresonance with 10 receiving no treatment, researchers found that bioresonance significantly reduced unexplained stomach pain .
Smoking addiction. In 2014, a study looking at 190 smokers found that those who received just one session of bioresonance were more likely to have successfully given up smoking a year later .
Allergies. A review of studies found that bioresonance can improve allergic symptoms such as asthma and eczema . Interestingly, its effect is more pronounced in children.
It’s worth considering that while we should strive to be evidence-based, it’s also possible to be evidence-limited. Our medical system works on the assumption that biochemistry is the foundation of biological systems, which means little money is spent investigating the energetic side of medicine.
But we are, without question, just as much energetic beings as we are biochemical ones. It will be interesting to see how the research that’s developing in this area will change the landscape of healthcare.
Bioresonance should not be relied upon to diagnose conditions. However, if you’re curious, it can be an illuminating tool to add greater depth and insight to your health journey.
Who would benefit from bioresonance?
Because bioresonance investigates a little-explored aspect of health—your biomagnetic field or frequency—it can provide another way of looking at mysterious or persistent symptoms.
This gentle and non-invasive therapy is suitable for everyone, but it can be particularly insightful in cases of:
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Unexplained illness
- Lyme disease
At the Home of Alchemy, we work with many expert practitioners, including the founder, Leanne Tipton, who uses a top of the range bioresonance machine to get the most precise readings possible. She uses these findings to develop a personalised protocol that may include further energy therapies, along with body-centered psychotherapy and homeopathy.
As with all treatment approaches at the Hone of Alchemy, the goal of bioresonance is to help your body restore its natural balance—so you can enjoy better health.
How much does bioresonance cost?
- 2 hour initial bioresonance appointment costs £200
- 1 hour follow up bioresonance appointment costs £105
Packages with discounted rates are also available.

Hello everyone, I hope you’re well!
So this coming month’s theme for my online yoga classes is deities. A sankalpa (intention) will be set at the beginning of each practice. This intention will be based on the chosen deity of the week and what they represent. The first yoga class will be themed on Ganesh.
The yoga class is for everyone. Suitable for beginners, all the way to advanced. The sequence will include some somewhat challenging asana. Purposely placed to challenge us and entice the ego to come out and play. I will be guiding us inward to focus more on the mindset. Encouraging us to overcome what’s perceived to be an obstacle and learning to move into the postures with strength, ease, and surrender.
Overcoming Difficult Times
So for those who are in the St Helens and Merseyside area, please feel free to come along to practice with us in St Helens town centre. Or maybe choose the option to practice yoga online in the comfort of your own home.
So let’s begin with an insight into the beautiful story of Ganesh, so we can become familiar with the moral of the story.
Traditionally, at the start of a brand new venture, the mantra Om Gam Ganapataye Namaha is used to clear paths to potential difficulties. This chant invokes Ganesh, the acknowledged deity and ‘lord of obstacles’.
Here is one of my favourite versions…enjoy!
What does Ganesha symbolise?
Also referred to as Ganapati, The Lord of Beginnings, The Remover of Obstacles, and also the deity of fine Fortune, Ganesh is probably one of the most well-known deities. He’s the son of Shiva and Parvati, two of perhaps the most powerful Gods and Goddesses, however, despite the celebrated depictions of his elephant’s head, he wasn’t born that way….
The story concerning how Ganesh got his elephant’s head varies across India – as most things do – however a wide told story goes one thing like this:
The birth of Ganesha
One day Goddess Parvati was at home on Mt.Kailash preparing for a bath. As she didn’t want to be disturbed, she told Nandi, her husband’s (Shiva) cow, to guard the door and let no one pass. Nandi faithfully took his post, intending to carry out Parvati’s wishes. But, when Shiva came home and naturally wanted to come inside, Nandi had to let him pass, being loyal first to Shiva. Parvati was angered by Nandi’s act of defiance, but even more than this, at the fact that she had no one as loyal to Herself as Nandi was to Shiva. So, taking the turmeric paste (for bathing) from her body and breathing life into it, she created Ganesha, declaring him to be her loyal son.
such power did Ganesha possess
The next time Parvati wished to bathe, she posted Ganesha on guard duty at the door. In due course, Shiva came home, only to find this strange boy telling him he couldn’t enter his own house! Furious, Shiva ordered his army to destroy the boy, but they all failed! Such power did Ganesha possess, being the son of Devi Herself!
This surprised Shiva. Seeing that this was no ordinary boy, the usually peaceful Shiva decided he would have to fight him, and in his divine fury severed Ganesha’s head, killing him instantly. When Parvati learned of this, she was so enraged and insulted that she decided to destroy the entire Creation! Lord Brahma, being the Creator, naturally had his issues with this, and pleaded that she reconsider her drastic plan. She said she would, but only if two conditions were met: one, that Ganesha is brought back to life, and two, that he be forever worshipped before all the other gods.
Shiva, having cooled down by this time, and realising his mistake, agreed to Parvati’s conditions. He sent Brahma out with orders to bring back the head of the first creature he crosses that is laying with its head facing North. Brahma soon returned with the head of a strong and powerful elephant, which Shiva placed onto Ganesha’s body. Breathing new life into him, he declared Ganesha to be his son as well and gave him the status of being foremost among the gods, and leader of all the ganas (classes of beings), Ganapati.
Meaning of the story of Ganesh
At first glance, this story may seem like a myth or a magical tale to share with our children. But, the true magical meaning is veiled.
Parvati is a form of Devi, the Parashakti (Supreme Energy). In the human body, She resides in the Muladhara chakra as the Kundalini shakti. It’s said that when we rid ourselves of the impurities that bind us, then the Lord automatically comes. This is why Shiva, the Supreme Lord, came unannounced as Parvati was bathing.
Nandi, Shiva’s bull, who Parvati first sent to guard the door represents the divine temperament. Nandi is so devoted to Shiva that his every thought is directed to Him, and he can easily recognise the Lord when He arrives. This shows that the attitude of the spiritual aspirant is what gains access to Devi’s (the kundalini shakti’s) abode. One must first develop this attitude of the devotee before hoping to become qualified for the highest treasure of spiritual attainment, which Devi alone grants.
the great secret is revealed
After Nandi permitted Shiva to enter, Parvati took the turmeric paste from Her own body, and with it created Ganesha. Yellow is the colour associated with the Muladhara chakra, where the kundalini resides, and Ganesha is the deity who guards this chakra. Devi needed to create Ganesha, who represents the earthbound awareness, as a shield to protect the divine secret from unripe minds. It is when this awareness begins to turn away from things of the world, and toward the Divine, as Nandi had, that the great secret is revealed.
Shiva is the Lord and Supreme Teacher. Ganesha here represents the ego-bound Jiva. When the Lord comes, the Jiva (the consciousness in body), surrounded as it is with the murky cloud of ego, usually doesn’t recognise Him, and maybe even ends up arguing or fighting with Him! Therefore, it is the duty of the Lord, in the form of the Guru, to cut off the head of our ego! So powerful is this ego, however, that at first, the Guru’s instructions may not work, as Shiva’s armies failed to subdue Ganesha. It often requires a tougher approach, but, eventually the compassionate Guru, in His wisdom finds a way.
Mudras are gestures created with the hands to focus the mind and direct subtle energy towards a certain place. They’re highly symbolic and are said to be powerful in the yogic tradition.
The Ganesh mudra represents strength and power and is additionally thought to be strengthening for the physical heart, and the muladhara chakra. Position the hands clasped in front of the chest with the elbows wide. This mudra represents both protection, but can also symbolise that our biggest obstacle area is often caused by ourselves. Our doubts, fears, and insecurities are often the only things holding us back (ego). By knowing this, we might realise that rather than seeking outside of ourselves for the answers to life’s issues. The real work lies in removing our obstacles. Maybe if we ask nicely though, Ganesh can lend a hand….
