I am fascinated by electricity. When I read a book1) on
biocircuits and that they do not use any outside electricity but
connected to a higher level equivalent of electricity in the human
body I was interested. I had to check for myself.
I used copper for my biocircuits. In this case a set of copper
plates connected by copper wire, which allowed the natural subtle
energies of the body to flow. All I used were copper sheets as used
for electronic circuit boards and heavy multi-strand copper wire, no
When I lay on my own biocircuits I felt my hands get warm, and I
would fall into a deep sleep (what is currently called a " power nap
") for 20 minutes. After that I woke up automatically feeling fresh
and relaxed. This became my introduction to subtle energy (chi,
prana, Qi, etc.).
For those who want to find out more, search for the inventor of
biocircuits: "Leon Ernest Eeman". The commercial version is shown
Relaxation Screens, sometimes called biocircuits or Eeman
screens, were discovered by Leon Ernest Eeman in the early 1920s.
After serious injuries in a plane crash, Eeman was deemed 100
percent disabled. While hospitalized he recalled Jesus' admonition
"Heal the sick by the laying on of hands." Eeman reasoned that this
healing energy was the subtle energy of the life force itself.
Within two years after his release from the hospital he developed
techniques using these screens that "restored him to better health
than he had ever known."
These screens are passive devices that facilitate the flow of
subtle bodily energy. A scientific, double blind study, that
measured muscle tension and skin conductance as well as monitored
EEG, found these screens to be superior for producing relaxation.
Relaxation Screens work to balance your bodily energy, called
chi, prana, life force, etc. Connecting the meridian terminations in
your hands to the points at the base of the neck and the bottom of
the spine augments bodily energy flow. The copper screens act like
an antenna to capture and radiate the energy while the copper
electrodes make contact with the meridian points in the hands.
Copper wire, an excellent conductor for this energy, connects the
screens with the electrodes. Connected as illustrated at the left,
the relaxation screens quickly reduce stress and fatigue, quite your
mind, and promote sleep. This is also a great way to relax for 20
minutes and renew your energy. The screens are 12 inch squares of
.011 copper, 16 mesh, and are sewed to a heavy cotton backing to
insure comfort and durability. The handles are 4" long, 1" polished
copper tube. All connections are silver soldered to avoid lead and
increase durability. The materials and workmanship are warranted
against manufacture defects for one year.
The commercial Biocircuit is made of: 12" Square .011 copper
mesh. Cotton backing, 1" Copper handles, Test Lead wire and: Silver
Although no medical claims are made or implied, many benefits
have been reported. This is also a great way to relax for 20 minutes
and renew your energy.

Personally I find that trying for myself was what got me interested.

A Double Blind Study of the "Biocircuit," a Putative
Subtle-Energy-Based Relaxation Device. Julian Isaacs, Ph.D. and
Editorial: Inside Out, Outside In. Steven L. Fahrion, Ph.D.
Biocircuits are passive devices which are reported to cause
relaxation in users, supposedly by facilitation of bodily subtle
energy flow. A repeated-measures, within-subjects control,
double-blind study was performed to test whether a "relaxation"
Biocircuit would produce more relaxation than a placebo-control
The study design controlled for expectation, order effects, first
time effects and ultradian rhythms. Dependent measures included four
physiological variables relating to arousal and relaxation (frontalis
muscle tension, one monopolar channel of EEG monitored for theta
episodes, finger temperature, finger skin conductance) and a
ten-item comparative questionnaire used to rank subjective
experiences relating to relaxation in session.
Twelve subjects completed four sessions each. The first session
for all subjects was used only for familiarization and its data were
not analyzed. Subjects then completed three more sessions each,
treatment order being counterbalanced and randomly assigned across
subjects. The three sessions exposed subjects to a "relaxation"
Biocircuit, a placebo-control "dummy" Biocircuit and a "tension"
The EEG theta measure showed significantly more theta episodes
associated with the relaxation device than with the placebo-control
(Wilcoxon signed ranks test: p = .025 one-tailed). The frontalis
muscle tension measure showed significantly lower tension levels
associated with the relaxation device than with the placebo-control
(Wilcoxon signed ranks test: p = .01 one tailed).
The skin conductivity and temperature measures did not reach
significance in any direction across any pair of treatments.
Five of the ten questionnaire items comparing the relaxation
device with the placebo-control significantly favored the relaxation
device (all by Sign test with a priori probability of .5);
subjective estimate of relaxation (p = .0002); sensations of warmth
(p = .03); non-ordinariness of experience (p = .02); perceived
effectiveness (p = 0.02); perceived benefit (p = 0.02).
No questionnaire items at the 0.05 significance level favored the
placebo control over the relaxation device. The findings of the
study demonstrate the superiority of the relaxation biocircuit over
a placebo-control for producing relaxation under fully controlled
double blind conditions.

Eeman Biocircuit Instructions
Here's some instructions on how to build an "Optimal Eeman
Biocircuit". The Eeman Biocircuit was invented by Leon Eeeman a
World War I pilot in the Royal Flying Corps. Due to a severe back
injury in 1915 flying accident, Eeman became interested in hands on
healing and energy work. Out of this experimentation came the
invention of his Eeman Relaxation Circuit circa 1919. In 1922 he set
up shop in London and continued his eccentric, but fruit bearing
experiments and treatments.
To make an Optimal Eeeman Biocircuit you'll require the
following: 2-- 12 inch square pieces of copper sheeting. Keep them
thin and flexible. Copper roofing shingles can be substituted. Where
to purchase: Scrap metal yards often have sheets, roofing companies
that work on old churches will sell you shingles, hardware
wholesalers, large home supply stores. Brass sheet works as well,
but are less easy to locate. Have them cut into 12 inch squares.
- (2) 4 foot insulated copper wire strands.
- (1) 3 foot insulated copper wire strands.
- Stereo copper wire works fine. You can buy this at Radio
Shack and other electronics stores. Hardware stores carry copper
wire, but it's usually bundled tighter that stereo cable You can
buy small spools of stereo wire at Radio Shack.
- 2-- 4 inch lengths of 1 inch or 3/4 inch copper pipe. These
handles can be purchased from hardware supply places or cut for
you in scrap on junk yards.
- Some duct or electrical tape.
- You'll need access to a drill so you can punch holes in the
pipes and copper sheets.
How to construct:
Take each copper 12 inch square and drill a hole near two
opposing corners of the squares. This hole should be large enough to
run bare copper wire through and tie a knot. (I like knots better
than rivets because rivets can stick you in the back when you're
laying on them) (The hole should be no larger than a hole in a three
hole punch for binders)...After you've drilled the two holes in
opposing corners, you will now drill another hole near the very
center of the perimeter of the square. This hole will connect this
square to the other square via a 3 foot copper wire strand to the
other square. This midline copper strand will be aligned with your
Drill a hole in each copper pipe handle. Now attach a 4 foot
copper strand to this hole in the handle. Make this a bare copper
knot. Cover any exposed copper wiring with electrical or duct tape.
Connect a copper wire strand to the other pipe handle hole.
Now lay your copper plates on the floor or on a bed. Place one
copper square 3 feet above the other square. Take the upper square
and have one of its holes so it is on the upper right hand side.
Now have the square below it have one of its holes on the lower
left hand side. Attach a handle wire to the upper right hand hole.
Attach a different handle wire to the lower left hand hole. The
three foot copper wire should connect the two squares via the holes
cut in the middle of the edge of the squares. Get all of this lined
up before you do your attaching of the various wires.
I'll run it though again:
- 3 wires
- 2 squares.
- 2 handles.
- The squares are attached via a midline.
- One handle is attached via a wire to the upper right hand
hole on one square.
- One handle is attached via a wire to the lower left hand
hole on one square.
- This is all done from a view of you looking down at your
Now you can lay upon the two squares. One is located on your
spine toward the base of your neck. The other square is placed near
your tailbone. A wire should be running from one square to the other
along your spine.
You gently grip one handle in your left hand and one in your
right. Your left hand should be connected to the upper square (below
neck). Your right hand should be connected to the lower square (near
P.S. Put some narrow tape around the edges of the metal squares
so you won't get pinched or scratched.
When using your Biocircuit, try the following: Cross your left
ankle over your right. Allow yourself to relax anyway you know.
Close your eyes and do any tech you would enjoy doing. Or simply lay
there relaxing. Before long you will begin to feel energy moving
through different parts of your body. Where there are any blockages
you'll experience twitches and tics. This will all self correct over
the next 20 to 30 minutes. Don't stay in them past 30 minutes
because you'll begin to grow tense and restless as your qi starts to
recycle in another direction.
