“This is a superb book! Your hands can be powerful tools for healing. While our ancestors knew this well, we have forgotten. Healing Touch is a wonderful guide for re-embracing your natural healing abilities. It shows you how to use your hands to bolster the energies that are at the foundation of health.”
—Donna Eden, coauthor of Energy Medicine and Energy Medicine for Women

Healing Touch is an essential piece of health education that we’ve always needed, and it includes skills we need today more than ever. Dr. Hover-Kramer is the perfect expert to teach these methods.”
—Dr. David Gruder, integrative psychologist and author of The New IQ

“In this book, Dorothea opens the door to many interested people who would like to learn to use their hands and hearts to facilitate healing in themselves or others. Healing Touch is enjoyable and comprehensive in its presentation, and it provides a wealth of material to guide the reader in some of the basic practices of Healing Touch.”
—Cynthia Hutchison DNSc, RN, MSN, HTCP/I, Director, Healing Touch Program

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 18 fundamental exercises for applying this scientifically validated energy medicine for yourself and others.

Starting with the theory and research behind it, Dr. Hover-Kramer proceeds to “give us a taste of HT compassion in action,” through case studies and practices that address such key arenas as emergencies, family relationships, self-care, life transitions 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.
