Touch is the oldest form of healing. When you have a pain anywhere in your body the very first thing you do is place your hand on it. The formal laying on of hands in prayerful meditation with the intent to heal is an ancient tradition as well.
Another method of balancing the body through hands-on-healing is Therapeutic Touch, which was developed by Dolores Krieger, PhD. RN and Dora Kunz, a gifted clairvoyant. An increasing number of hospitals are making this CAM (Complementary Alternative Medicine) therapy available to their patients because studies have shown its effectiveness. The name of the practice may seem to be a bit of a misnomer, since the healer’s hands never actually touch the body of the patient. What the practitioner is accessing instead are the energy fields that surround the patient’s body.
Dr. Barbara Brennan, a former research physicist at NASA, developed a method similar to Krieger’s of working with what she calls the Human Energy Field (HEF) that surrounds the body. But, unlike Krieger’s approach, the techniques Brennan developed teach the practitioner to see the fields, not just sense changes in them. Brennan brings a scientific approach to this rather intuitive “knowing.” It is her belief that when a group of students look at an unhealthy energy field, they should all see the same thing, just as when a group of medical students look at a diseased organ, they all see the same problem.
There is a very real reason why healing comes through the hands. It’s the same reason why intuitives can “see” energy fields around the body using what is known as the “third eye” area located near the forehead. It is because the shape and composition of the human body serves as a dipole antenna with four end-points and a central generator of power. In the second part of this series we will delve into how the body antenna works.
