radiesthesia

Pseudomedicine
A healing philosophy developed in 1927 by three French clerics, in which clairvoyancy is used to diagnose and treat disease; central to radiesthesia is the syllogism that:
• All things emit radiation;
• Currents flow through the human hand;
• Hands can thereby be used to detect emitted radiation.

Forms of radiesthesia
Pendular diagnosis and telediagnosis.
