Author and owner of this website. Born in 1951, I am a qualified Radionics practitioner with the Radionic Association. I spent 24 years in the electronics industry between 1973 and 1997 and prior to this left University with a degree in Economics. I have studied both Radionics and Homoeopathy extensively. Apart from my work as a therapist I design Radionic instruments for both MGA and myself (see LRI and the Alpha-Numeric Transducer).

Anyone wishing to get a general grasp of what Radionics is about should read:

Report On Radionics by Edward Russell.

ISBN 85435 002 0 published C W Daniel & Co, 1 Church Path, Saffron Walden, Essex CB10 1JP, UK

Russell provides a comprehensive and highly-readable survey of Radionics from its beginnings to the period of Rae and Tansley.


A more technical approach is provided by David Tansley in his books:

Radionics & the Subtle Anatomy of Man
ISBN 0 85032 059 5 published by C W Daniel & Co 

Chakras, Rays and Radionics
ISBN 0 85207 161 2 also published by C W Daniel & Co.
This book contains a Chapter by John Da Monte on the miasms.

Radionics - Interface With the Ether Fields
ISBN 0 85032 129 8 also published by C W Daniel & Co

Dimensions of Radionics by Tansley, Rae and Westlake
ISBN 0 914732 29 3 published by Brotherhood of Life, Inc., 110 Dartmouth SE, Albuquerque, N.M. 87106


To understand Tansley’s work more thoroughly, Alice Bailey’s work should be studied, in particular Esoteric Healing, Esoteric Psychology 1 and Esoteric Psychology 2.  These are published by Lucis Press.


The Chain of Life by Dr W. Guyon Richards, now apparently out of print, is a fascinating and intriguing book on Radionics and Radionic therapeutics and should be studied if you can get hold of a copy. Not for the beginner. It was published by C W Daniel, so writing to them might help persuade them to reprint it.


The Science of Cosmic Ray Therapy, or Teletherapy by Dr Benoytosh Bhattacharya, revised and enlarged by Dr A.K. Bhattacharya and Dr. D. N. Ramchandran

This is the first book I read on Radionics and although it impressed me greatly I did not accept a word of it. The only possibility was to try it and see if it worked. And here we are.....

Published by Firma KLM Private Limited, 257/B, B.B. Ganguly Street, Calcutta-700012, India. An earlier edition is also available, known as Teletherapy.

A New Science of Life and The Presence of the Past, by Rupert Sheldrake, may provide indications which give a theoretical basis as to how Radionics might work, although it does not deal with Radionics as such. See section below, FAQ 2.

A number of useful pamphlets and books by the late Dr Bruce Copen on pendulum technique and basic Radionics methods are available from Copen Laboratories.

Original works on Radionics by Albert Abrams, Drown and others have been reprinted by Borderland Sciences Research Foundation and are interesting source material.

A few FAQs:

1. Are Radionic instruments really necessary?
It is argued - and has apparently been demonstrated - that Radionic results can be obtained by, for instance, drawing a picture of a Radionic instrument on a piece of paper, marking in the settings, and using this for treatment. Therefore, the argument continues, why do we need to purchase instruments? It might also be asked - but what was the quality of the result?

This question is dealt with at length by Malcolm Rae in Dimensions of Radionics, who explains that the instrument provides a tuning focus for the mind. Radionic practitioners may have many patients under treatment, and it would be extremely difficult - probably impossible - to hold the image of each patient and the respective treatment in concentrated focus at all times. Thus the instrument acts as a kind of ‘sample and hold’ device which allows the operator to set it up for a treatment and then leave it while getting on with other activities. The practitioner has already provided the basic impetus through his or her intent to heal and the Radionic instrument does the rest. For a further expansion on the idea of intent, it is worth reading A Treatise On White Magic by Alice Bailey, which is essentially about creativity through focused intention, and not, as the title seems to suggest, forms of magical ritual.

It should also be noted that Radionic treatments, unlike, for example faith healings, use highly-specific treatments which are designed to alleviate specific energetic disturbances as identified by the practitioner. Thus selection of the most appropriate treatments is a crucial part of Radionic work and the practitioner will spend much time determining what needs to be done and how. Thus, working without an instrument, not only would the practitioner have to hold in mind a general intention to heal but also many specific intentions held specifically for a number of patients.

 2. Is Radionics actually magic by another name?

Not being a magician I cannot give detailed comments about magic and its aims and intentions. But as described above, in Radionic working the objective is to heal specific health problems using precisely-specified Radionic codes. In doing so the practitioner must have the patient's permission, preferably in writing. We do not perform treatments to help solve financial problems or induce invisibility or find new lovers etc, which may be the province of the magical arts. Useful books on magic have been written by Dion Fortune and the interested reader could consult those works for an introduction to this subject. Similarly black magic may be used to attack other persons by the creation of astral entities and so on (see Dion Fortune - Psychic Protection) but obviously, this is done without the other person's consent and usually bears harmful intent on the part of magician. However it has fallen to Radionics from time to time to give treatments to rid patients of supposed possessing entities, curses and other pseudo-miasmata. These must be taken seriously; they may be delusions on the part of the patient but their effects may be very serious.

Another view is that it may be a misnomer in general terms to talk about magic as such; magic, sorcery, witchcraft etc may well be simply personifications of things which are not yet understood or accepted by mainstream human thought - the question of whether magical operations are actually efficient or effective being a secondary matter. To look at it another way, if you can still find on this planet ‘primitives’ who have not witnessed modern technology, and you switch a radio on in front of them and music or voices come out of it, they might well ascribe the phenomenon to ‘magic’. We modern people of course know that the radio is a device for picking up electromagnetic waves which have been broadcast from a radio station. On the other hand if the untutored modern person looks at a piece of music by Mozart on an oscilloscope (a device for looking at electromagnetic waveforms) he will see a very complex line wiggling around on the screen and will probably wonder how that translates into the melodies of the 41st Symphony, so his puzzlement may be as great as that of the tribesman with a bone through his nose. If we took this yet a further step and gave him a print-out of the binary data for a 24-bit digitally-encoded version of Mozart and explained that this was, in fact, the symphony, I am sure our modern consumer would be utterly baffled. In short, as I see it at present, if we decide to call Radionics ‘magic’ it is simply because we don’t have a better explanation, and thus we also, from a certain standpoint, are ‘primitives’. Magic so-called may in fact be the manipulation of ‘non-physical’ (or subtle) energies and formative forces by a physical person to bring about certain desired results on the physical plane.

We might further take the view that everything in the Universe happens under Law, and where we have not discerned the nature of those Laws, we think in terms of Magic, Miracles, and so forth. From another angle, this might lead to the idea that where the manipulation conforms to the Law, it is White Magic, and where the manipulation attempts to breach the Law, it is Black Magic, and hence the personal danger to the prospective Black Magician when the Law ultimately re-asserts itself. This would help the reader to understand the nature of Radionic working, in that ill intent will come back on the practitioner.

Most human activities are preceded by thought at some level and the effective person is the one who can translate his or her thought into physical manifestation through the strength of their intent, in short, their ability to manifest thought on the physical plane. Thus is could be argued that everyone practises ‘magic’ to a greater or lesser degree according to their level of success at getting what they want out of life.

The concepts of Morphogenetic Fields, Morphic Resonance and the Theory of Formative Causation may help provide further explanations for some of the processes taking place in Radionics, particularly on the matter of analysis and treatment selection. These theories have been set out by Rupert Sheldrake in his books A New Science of Life and The Presence of the Past, although, as noted, there is no discussion of Radionics in the text.

3. What type of pendulum should I use?

Many different types of pendulum are available and it can be argued that a pendulum simply amplifies a muscle reaction in the arm of the dowser and therefore any suitable object will do, such as a wedding ring on the end of a cotton thread. I personally use small inexpensive brass pendulums as I find that appropriate weight and balance are important to facilitate rapid working.
