The physical body is surrounded by an energetic envelope referred to as the ethereal, etheric or auric field. Its existence was scientifically proven by Harold Burr, Ph.D. (1889-1973) of Yale University. It is thought of as the energetic blueprint that guides the multiplying and specializing cells of the embryo, then of the fetus, to their particular position and in their proper interrelationship.
Later, in the baby and then in the adult, it dictates physiological functions. All the chakras (the various colored energy centers of rotating light depicted in the image above) and the related system of nadis (energetic channels in Ayurveda), as well as the meridians of Traditional Chinese Medicine extend from the physical body into the etheric body and interconnect the two.
Caring only for the physical body is just part of the equation and true vitality and health cannot be fully achieved without paying attention to our energetic envelope. The physical body and our auric field are like yin and yang. If one is out of sync, so is the other.
That is why energetic or vibrational tools are often used on the energy field surrounding the body in order to balance the vitality of the physical body. PHYTO5® has created vibrational serums (Phyt’Ethers) and invented our proprietary light therapy technology known as the Chromapuncteur™ for this purpose. In fact, all of PHYTO5's skincare products are vibrational in nature.
