Research physicist and founder of her own school, Brennan is a leading New Age healer. She provides here a useful introduction to the scientific background behind her laying-on-of-hands technique. Brennan offers an explanation of her healing perspective and its use in conjunction with medical therapy, the stages and importance of self-care, and healing relationships through auric field interaction and higher spiritual realities. She encourages taking personal responsibility for one's health through a holistic approach and consultation with nontraditional specialists as well as a physician. This self-help book may become a New Age classic. Highly recommended.

Brennan instructs on how to work with the "human energy field," which involves the seven chakras and the aura, to cure various physical and emotional problems. Readers searching for ways of healing that go beyond the orthodox will be best able to use this book and because Brennan's discussion is long and involved, at once fascinating and confusing, it may well attract the most devoted anyway. Despite a nod from Bernie Siegel, and evidence throughout that Brennan's methods can be effective, discussions of how people "grow cords" that obstruct relationships or why you should soak used jewelry in saltwater to destroy negative energy are sure to have skeptics shaking their heads. Brennan is not only a therapist and healer, but also a former research scientist for NASA, which would seem to lend her credibility. This title follows her popular Hands of Light
