This book is a must have.

After reading this amazing book, I promise you no other instruction is necessary to begin the practice of these ancient healing techniques. Dorothea Hover-Kramer is a master at explaining and demystifying these simple, powerful energetic skills that each of us hold literally in our own hands.
Recently my eighty year old husband took a serious head first tumble down a flight of steep stairs. Among his injuries were two dislocated fingers and severe shoulder pain amongst several other areas of trauma. He was transported to the hospital after the EMT's strapped him to a back board fearing paralyses from broken bones after viewing the sheer length and angle of the stairwell. On my way out the door to follow the ambulance to the hospital, I grabbed Dorothea Hover-Kramer's new book Healing Touch. I remembering reading in Healing Touch how focused energy from the palms of our hands acts similarly to the ways in which "mechanical" ultrasound penetrates the body.
In between ex-rays, I-V's and a thousand questions from the hospital staff, I placed my right hand between the backboard and my husband's shoulder and my left hand above his heart. Focusing my attention, my hands grew hot and I saw relief spread over my husband's face as he began to relax. While quite bruised, has no permanent damage. Call his rapid healing (playing golf in one month) luck or lack of any true serious injury, ether way I know that Healing Touch made quite a contribution.
This five star book is a must have in every home. Dawn Novotny LCSW
