ECOintention grew out of resonance therapy, which in turn grew out of radionics, which was developed at Stanford University in California in the 1920s. All three methods make use of remote treatments or balancing by means of a map or a photo.
The different methods have become less and less technical. For example, radionics only uses radionic devices. In resonance therapy, symbols and fractals (mathematical images and formulas) are added to this. An ECOintention Practitioner does not use radionic devices, but has a self-assembled energetic home pharmacy with colors, crystals, homeopathic remedies, Bach flower remedies, symbols and an orgone radiator.
In the ECOintention, the owner, manager or guardian of the project is also intensively involved in the balancing process. This is neither the case with radionics nor with resonance therapy.
The texts on the following pages are taken from the brochure ‘Resonance therapy in eight steps’ of the German Institute for Resonance Therapy (IRT). It contained a short history of radionics and an overview of the IRT’s projects, results and method. Hans Andeweg wrote the brochure in 1995.
Naturopath Irene Lutz and Dr. Marion Gräfin Hoensbroech were the founders of resonance therapy and the founders of the Institute for Resonance Therapy. Hans Andeweg got to know them in 1989. In 1990 he started working for the institute. Rijk Bols started her work at the IRT in 1994. They left the IRT in 1998 resp. 1999. The Institute of 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 foundation for ECOtherapy. The first courses and projects were provided in 1999. The Center for ECOtherapy was founded in 2000. On January 1, 2015 they changed the name of the method to ECOintention and their company to Center for ECOintention.
There are many phenomena for which no explanation has yet been found, but we can learn to deal with them emotionally. In practice, it often happens that incomplete or incorrect theories yield useful knowledge. For example, the orbits of the planets can also be calculated from a world view, in which the Earth is the center of the universe.
In ancient cultures it was known that the Master could transfer his knowledge to the student, without being physically present, healing at a distance was also known. In 1530, the physician Paracelsus wrote: “Man can work remotely while remaining quietly in place.” Many such references are now difficult to interpret, and much knowledge has been lost in the course of history.
In modern times, discoveries and research have led to the development of radionics and resonance therapy. Phenomena, which for a long time were regarded as paranormal, appear to be controllable and reproducible. They can therefore become the object of research of natural science. The technique appears to be an aid in healing diseased ecosystems, and new possibilities for a deepened contact between Man and Nature are opening up.
History of radionics
dr. Albert Abrams, professor of pathology at Stanford University (USA), discovered at the beginning of the 20th century when tapping his patients that every disease produces an unusual dull tone in a special place on the abdomen.
The phenomenon only occurred when he turned his patients face to the west. He called this special position in space a critical rotation point.
The tone was also heard in healthy people when they were connected to a sick person, for example a malaria patient, via a copper wire. Later Abrams discovered that a drop of blood from the malaria patient is also sufficient for this effect. The drop of blood represents the patient and his illness. The drop is called a resonator.
Conversely, in malaria patients the tone normally sounded hollow when the copper wire touched the drug quinine.
Abrams assumed that the information transmitted over the copper wire must be of an electrical nature. For better diagnoses, he built the first radionic equipment consisting of copper wire, electrodes, resistors and potentiometers.
American physician Ruth Drown discovered that Abram’s healing method also worked remotely. The patient sent a drop of blood, while he simply stayed at home for diagnosis and treatment. The method was called radionics, because it was thought that radio waves were used.

Engineer Curtis Upton also applied the treatment to other living things. In the 1930s he experimented with potted plants. Later he treated fields and used aerial photographs as a resonator instead of crop or soil samples.
The English engineer George de la Warr copied the American devices. Together with the physicist Leo Corte, he conducted successful experiments with plants in the 1950s.
In 1986 the German naturopath Irene Lutz picks up the thread of radionics again. In 1988 she founded the Institute for Resonance Therapy (IRT). Because it has become apparent in the meantime that the information transfer does not involve radio waves, but a special kind of resonance, she calls the method Resonance Therapy.
The English biologist Rupert Sheldrake describes this resonance as morphic resonance.

The Institute for Resonance Therapy (IRT)
- Resonance therapy is a method developed from radionics for revitalizing disturbed ecosystems, especially forests and agricultural lands.
- The remote treatment is performed daily at the IRT near Dortmund via an aerial view of the project. For this, the “morphic resonance” described by Rupert Sheldrake is used.
- The method has evolved from pot trials to landscape treatments. Treatment of seed is currently under investigation.
- The use of intuition plays an important role in the composition, implementation and monitoring of resonance therapy.
- The IRT was founded in 1988 by Irene Lutz and Dr. Marion Gräfin Hoensbroech founded. It has three departments: the therapy department, the basic research department and the biology department.
- The institute has projects in various European countries. In the Czech Republic and Russia, forests larger than 10,000 ha are treated.
- The IRT develops resonance therapy in such a way that it not only “works”, but is also controllable, reproducible, explainable and learnable, thus linking up with modern natural science.
- The IRT ended its activities in 2001.
- Resonance therapy can increase the survival chances of ecosystems. The most important, of course, remains to stop environmental pollution.
Resonance therapy in 8 steps
1 - Healthy forest
- In a healthy forest the trees are in contact with each other due to their trunk appearance, there is communication and cooperation.
- The forest is a complex entity that organizes itself. The whole is more than the sum of its parts. The healthy forest is an (eco)system.
- The information for the development of this (eco)system, for example from pioneer to climax stage, is stored in a morphic field, or attractor, described by Rupert Sheldrake.
- The trees are in resonance with the attractor and in this way receive important information for, among other things, the adaptation to their environment. The forest remains so vital.
- The attractor contains the “building plan” of the trees and the forest. The genetic material in the cells provides the “building blocks”.
2 - Forest with an adaptation problem
- Suddenly the groundwater drops. For example, a dam has been built in the Austrian Danube, which means that the riparian forest no longer receives water. This process is irreversible.
- The environment of the trees changes drastically in a short time. The roots can no longer reach the groundwater. The trees have a problem; they have to adapt to the new situation, otherwise they will die.
- The situation with the dam is new for the forest, it has no “experience” with a long-term low groundwater level. No information is stored in the attractor for the solution of this problem.
- The trees are getting weaker. The trunk appearance decreases, mutual contact is lost. The system is disturbed, suffers from stress and becomes more sensitive to diseases and pests.
3 - Sick forest
- The groundwater level has been very low for a long time, and there is little rainfall.
- The soil dries out. The trees fail to adapt, their vitality decreases with leaf loss as a symptom. Some trees are starting to die.
- There is no more contact between the trees. The system disintegrates, complexity and diversity are lost. The trees no longer work together, but compete for water and nutrition.
4 - Resonance therapy: diagnosis
In collaboration with the owner or guardian, an IRT biologist examines the diseased forest. Among other things, it looks at:
- History of the area
- Soil and tree species
- Management plan
- Soil, leaf and needle analyses
- Diseases and plagues
- Possible causes of the disturbance inside and outside the area
- In addition, energetic observations, such as soil and trunk radiation, are made at various places in the forest at a representative number of control trees.
- This makes it possible to observe changes in life processes at an earlier stage.
5 - Resonance Therapy: Finding Holon and Making Contact
- After diagnosis, it is tested whether the area can respond to treatment. Resonance therapy can only treat whole systems.
- Usually property boundaries are not natural boundaries. Adjacent forest areas, parts of the system, are also treated in that case.
- The treated area is called holon. The holon is marked on an aerial photograph and cut out.
- Morphic fields and attractors are unlimited, they are present everywhere in the here and now. The attractor of the diseased Austrian forest is therefore also present in e.g. Germany or South Africa.
- In order to resonate with the attractor in the institute, the resonance therapist needs an “antenna”.
- Uniformity is important for the functioning of the antenna. Similar structures are in resonance with each other. An aerial photograph is in a sense similar to the actual forest. The aerial view of the holon is therefore like an antenna, which communicates through resonance with the attractor of the forest in Austria.
- For optimum resonance, this antenna, the so-called resonator, is rotated in the critical rotation point.
6 - Resonance Therapy: Create Therapy Program
- The resonance therapist tries to offer the forest information with which the forest can solve its problem itself.
- With the help of the resonator, it comes into resonance with the attractor of the forest.
- The solutions that the therapist can offer are stored in other attractors. Materially, these are represented, among other things, by fractals or symbols. Fractals are mathematical self-repetitions that make it possible to describe shapes and processes in nature.
- Symbols and fractals are called informers.
- A symbol is a complex information device, which contains a lot of information, so many possible solutions. This can be compared to a book. A fractal is a simple informer, only one answer is stored in it, for example root growth.
- With the help of the informer, the therapist enters into resonance with the symbol attractor and the answers stored therein. He is now able to intuitively “ask” which solutions the forest is “interested” in.
7 - Resonance Therapy: Treatment
- After several tests, it appears that the forest is, among other things, “interested” in root growth, which helps the trees to reach the low groundwater.
- This creates a therapy program with different problem solutions, consisting of a few symbols and a fractal for root growth. Duration, rhythm and intensity are tested for each informer, with which they are offered the forest.
- The resonator and informer are then aligned by rotating them like antennas in special critical rotation points. With the right “focus” the forest attractor can adopt the solutions of the informer.
- This information transfer therefore takes place without the aid of devices.
- Placing the informer and resonator in radionic equipment shortens the treatment time and significantly increases the effectiveness.
- A treatment lasts two to four hours a day and is performed daily by two therapy assistants. New therapy programs are created every three to four weeks, depending on the time of year and the forest’s response.
8 - Regenerated Forest
- The forest has received three years of resonance therapy. Due to the radionic equipment, the problem solutions were repeated daily with high frequency.
- This repetition of the information has created a new attractor. The forest has got an answer to its problem; root growth enables the trees to adapt to the low groundwater level.
- The trunk appearance increases and contact between the trees is restored.
- The (eco)system starts to re-organize and the trees regenerate.
- The treatment can be stopped, but in the coming years the forest will be visited regularly for biological and energetic checks.
- Resonance therapy has limits; every system has a certain “leeway” within which it can adapt to changes in the environment. Resonance therapy can expand this space slightly, but not infinitely.
Resonance Therapy for Park Laxenburg
In September 1990, the government of the Bundesland Lower Austria commissioned the IRT to treat the Park Laxenburg near Vienna.
Laxenburg is a 250-hectare landscape park, which is visited by approximately one million people every year. The park trees, in particular the Oak, Linden, Plane and Horse Chestnuts, had poor vitality, which had declined significantly again by the end of the 1980s.
Park Laxenburg was treated from September 1990 to November 1994. An independent research agency was commissioned by the government to investigate the effect of the resonance therapy. The agency found a vitality increase of 21% after three years.
