From the Inside Flap

A revolutionary book by a pioneering healer, Hands of Life takes energy medicine where it has rarely gone before--into the operating room--as Julie Motz reveals the true healing power of the body and puts it in the reader's very own hands.

As one of the first nontraditional healers allowed to work in an operating room, Julie Motz harnesses the body's own energy to help patients survive risky operations, such as heart transplants and cancer surgery. Now she shares remarkable case studies of healing, recovery, and transformation--and gives readers step-by-step guidance on accessing one's own innate healing energy.

Treating the body and spirit as an interconnected whole, Motz explains her breakthrough form of healing, the ultimate synthesis of Eastern holistic healing and Western medicine. She shows how strong emotion affects our bodies, creating energy imbalances that can lead to illness if unaddressed, and illustrates how we can heal.

As healers we often forget to look at the best tools we have been given, our hands. "Hands of Life:Use your Body's Own Energy Medicine for Healing, Recovery and Transformation", reminds us of the blessing of touch. Reflective as well as informational this is a great book to give for a graduate going into the healing or teaching profession. We find ourselves starving for love and affection in our daily lives. Ms. Motz teaches that in this world where touch is seen more and more as invasive and suspicious, we can use the healer in us all to affect this attitude. We can teach others that touch is another form of nutrition that feeds the spiritual heart as well as the physical body. If you are looking for the best book on the subject of hands on healing, this is it.

Format: Paperback
This revolutionary take on the healing arts is so fundamentally sound that I found myself wondering why no one had thought and said these things before! Julie's experiences and descriptions of how she helps her patients process their surgeries and illnesses and GROW through them are truly inspirational. Our bodies want to know and understand our choices, and Julie does the obvious: talking to the individual organs and helping her patients truly inhabit their own bodies. This book is SO well-written and moving - You may not agree with every hypothesis she presents, but you will definitely FEEL happy to be human as a result of reading this book!

Format: Paperback
This is an absolutely transformational book about healing the body through the powerful mind-body-spirit connection. Julie Motz''s work is pioneering and incredibly, she's takes this, and us, into the operating room. Detailing her ground-breaking work with Dr. Mehmet OZ, (years before he was famous!) we''re able to hear and feel the emotional causes and effects of heart disease and cancer, from the body's perspective. Through her work, Ms. Motz lovingly places healing in your hands. This is a book that will change the way you view your health, the health of others, and quite possibly your life. Highly recommended.

Amazing material. This book brings light to how much more we need to bring into our health care system. I am much more aware of how powerful our minds are to our bodies.

Format: Paperback
I almost gave this book five start because it is so amusingly wacky. The author has quite imaginatively lost track of reality. Repressed pre-birth trauma stored in cells anywhere in the body? Hilarious. The most amazing story is of her "entering the body" of an anesthetized patient where she learns that he really wants to die, and so she loudly encourages him to go ahead and die. all the while Dr. Oz does cardiac surgery on the fellow. What possessed Oz to bring her into his surgery? Motz herself claims Oz was a bit of a laughing stock among his colleagues for doing so.

But anyway, Motz gets a one star from me for dressing like an OR nurse.

This book blew me away! For serious students of the mind-body connection, this will open new doors to new awareness regarding health, disease, cell memory, emotions and the power of the mind. I couldn't put it down. Very compelling reading!

I read this book over a decade ago, and I'm still referencing it with friends and clients and healers. It was an easy and illuminating read that I recommend to anyone who is interested in the mind/body connection.
