ECOtherapy grew out of resonance therapy, which itself
emerged from radionics, that was developed in the 1920s at
Stanford University in California. All three methods use
treatments (or “balancing“) at a distance through a map or
The different methods have become increasingly less
technical. In radionics only radionic equipment was used. In
resonance therapy symbols and fractals (mathematical images
and formulae) were added. An ECOtherapist doesn’t use
radionic equipment, but has a self-assembled energetic
toolkit with colors, crystals, homeopathic treatments, Back
flower remedies, symbols and an orgone beamer.
What is also important in ECOtherapy is that the owner,
manager or guardian oft he project is intensely involved in
the balancing process. That is neither the case in radionics
nor in resonance therapy.
The text below is taken from the brochure “Resonance
Therapy in Eight Steps“. It is a short history of radionics
and an overview of the projects, results and methodology of
the German Institute for Resonance Therapy.
Hans Andeweg wrote the brochure in 1995.
The natural healers Irene Lutz and Dr Marion Grafin
Hoensbroech were the founders oft he resonance therapy and
the Institute for Resonance Therapy. Hans Andeweg got to
know them in 1989. In 1990 he went to work for the
Rijk Bols began her work at the IRT in 1994. They both
left the IRT in 1998 and 1999. The Institute for Resonance
Therapy ended its activities in 2001.
With their knowledge of resonance therapy and the book
“In Resonance with Nature“ Rijk Bols and Hans Andeweg laid
the Principles for ECOtherapy. The first courses and
projects were given in 1999. The Center for ECOtherapy was
founded in 2000.
