Healing Touch is one of the most accepted and widespread energy-healing modalities in the world. With more than a hundred hospitals in the US and Canada using energy medicine as part of their regular care, the number of people who have learned Healing Touch has surpassed 100,000 and several thousand have become certified practitioners.
This practical guidebook is the first to give instruction in some of the foundational and easily learned methods in an introductory format. Presented by founding elder Dr. Dorothea Hover-Kramer, Healing Touch takes readers through more than a dozen fundamental exercises for applying this scientifically validated energy medicine for yourself and others.
Starting with the theory and research behind Healing Touch, Dr. Hover-Kramer proceeds to give readers a sense of this modality as “compassion in action.” She presents stories and practices that address such key arenas as helping in emergencies, family relationships, self-care, life transitions both great and small, and perhaps most importantly, the alleviation of physical discomfort and anxiety. Learn the preliminary yet critical steps of Centering and Grounding, Magnetic Passes to restore balance to the human vibrational matrix, Laser and Ultrasound for acute pain relief, special interventions for trauma release, and much more.
"This delightful, well-organized, easily readable book does indeed present Healing Touch in a format accessible to everyone. ... The methods presented here should be invaluable to anyone feeling the stresses of life in this complex, fast-paced world. Thank you Dorothea for such a “gift” of a book!"
