I have heard of this before then found this article on Grounding

Dr. Becker interviews Clint Ober via Skype. Clint has spent the last 15 years researching how the earth’s electrical energy influences health. He set out to answer the question, “I wonder if loss of contact with the earth could possibly have any effect on our physiology or on our bodies?”
  • Clint began experimenting with grounding (also called earthing) and immediately realized he was sleeping better. Soon after, he realized he was experiencing a reduction in the chronic pain he had endured for decades.
  • Clint started doing his own research and conducting small studies on the effects of grounding on markers of health, and he soon attracted the attention of doctors and scientists. More studies followed, and there are now about a dozen peer-reviewed, published studies that provide proof-of-concept evidence that grounding affects physiology.
  • Animals will instinctively ground themselves if they have the option, but indoor-only cats and pets living in cities are rarely grounded. Clint encourages everyone to really try to find a spot outdoors where you and your pet can sit or at least stand on the ground. Spend 30 to 60 minutes touching the earth as often as possible. The first thing that will happen is your blood will normalize and your face will turn pink. After about 30 minutes, you should feel your energy level rising, your color should be high, your pain score should be lower, and you may feel happier.
  • Grounding is an exciting field because it has the potential to help not only manage chronic disease and inflammation in animals, but also stress. Today’s dogs and cats, in particular, have a tremendous amount of physiologic and emotional stress, due primarily to inappropriate diets and lack of exercise.
