The Bovis scale, named after French radiesthesist André Bovis
(1871–1947; also referred to as either Antoine or Alfred by some
authors), is a concept used by dowsers and adherents of geomancy
to quantify the strength of a postulated "cosmo-telluric energy"
inherent in a location.
The attribution to Bovis is due to his grandson, the
self-designated "geobiologist" Jacques Bovis. The concept was
further developed by one André Simoneton (1949), who introduced
the term "radio-vitality" (radiovitalité). Simoneton's scale was
in turn developed into a "modern Bovis scale" by Swiss
"geobiologist" and former Vaud cantonal parliament member Blanche
Merz (1919–2002), who founded an Institut de recherches en
géobiologie at Chardonne in 1979 and whose self-published books
appeared from the 1980s. Merz' books enjoyed some popularity in
French-speaking Switzerland and were reprinted by commercial
publishers in the later 1980s and 1990s, in translation also
reaching German-speaking Europe. Merz' 1983 Hauts-Lieux
Cosmo-Télluriques in 1987 was also published in English
The unit of the Bovis scale has no known definition and isn't in
any way based on physics. The "measurement" consists of the dowser
walking around the place with an object (like a pendulum, dubbed
"biometer") and declaring the Bovis number. A number of 6,500 is
considered "neutral", lower figures affect human "energies"
negatively, higher numbers positively. Numbers above 10,000 are in
the "ethereal range", considered Places of power.

Images of Bovis Biometers
An instrument invented by M. Bovis in France to give measurements
on a scale of 1 to 100 in regard to dowsing responses. He first
used it to determine the quality of cheese and casks of wine. Now
it is mainly used in radiesthesia and other methods of healing.
The biometer consists of a wood baseboard with a 100 cm rule which
can be slid into the base. At the 0 end a small cup is fitted to
hold a witness, if required. The pendulum is held towards the
right end of the base and the rule is slid out or in until a
positive response is observed by the dowser. The reading on the
rule is taken as the value or rate. There are many variations of
The Bovis Biometer -- A Detecting Method
The “vibrational” level of a place, of an object, of a person or
of a situation can be measured with many different instruments, I
personally use the L-rods with a graduated scale and the Bovis
In the attachment A you can observe the graduated scale that I use
to measure the quantity of subtle energy, attachment B is a
picture of the original Bovis biometer, and picture C shows its
representation on the graduated scale, used to measure the various
“radiances” or subtle energies types with the L-rods.
On a physical ground a healthy person will have a frequency of
about 6500 Bovis units (or Angrstrom); this is a wave length
colored in orange that is present in the original Bovis biometer,
close to the infrared radiation. On the contrary the frequency of
a very ill person can go down to less than 4000 units. The
vibrational rate of an environment will immediately give an
indication about the energetic quality of that place.
In a religious building we can find values of 8000/9000 Bovis
units. This values can reach a score of 13,000/19,000 or even
more, in some particularly privileged religious sites.? ?A
Hartmann knot and an underground water stream, that emit negative
frequencies usually have a vibration of about 3,000 Bovis units.
Every contact or closeness to levels below 6500 bovis units will
be negative for man; this rule is true also for food. What really
matters is not the kind of material but the vitality that it
contains. The real organic products and all natural materials have
a great level of energy and therefore a high vibrational quality.
Pork meat, even if very tasty, has a very low vibrational energy,
from 2,000 to 4,500 Bovis units, like many other refined foods
like white pasta or white sugar. This difference of values is
determined by the way pigs are raised, what they eat, where they
live etc... If a pig is raised outside and well fed the vibration
of its meat will be higher than that of a pig which is raised
inside and badly fed. This is true for all kinds of meat, eggs and
of course for fruit and vegetables, if they are organic they will
have a higher vibrational rate.
Another example of low vibration is that of cellular phones and
computers which vibrate at about 2,000/3,000 Bovis units and it’s
necessary to be very careful while using these equipments, so
widely used and so negative for our health.
