Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This is a clear and concise introduction to therapeutic touch, a healing art based on the ancient practice of lying on hands. Although still considered experimental, therapeutic touch is used in many hospitals alongside more conventional medicine to alleviate a variety of injuries and illnesses. Macrae, who taught nursing at New York University, gives a balanced presentation of theory and practice. The theory is based on the concept of an energy field surrounding the bodymuch as a gravitational field surrounds objects. When a person is ill, the flow of energy around his body is congested or obstructed. A trained practitioner can feel these blockages and use his hands to help clear them and to redirect the patient's energy flow to a more healthy pattern. Readers are encourage to try to cure their friends' headaches; helpful illustrations are included. (February)
Library Journal
Healing by physical contact has been part of medical practice throughout history. Macrae, a registered nurse who has instructed health professionals and laypersons in the art of therapeutic touch, describes methods for assessing the client and using the universal life force in everyone to initiate healing. The concept of wholeness is important in this therapy, and these noninvasive treatments make them a reassuring adjunct to traditional medicine for disorders, chronic diseases, and wounds and injuries. Low-key in approach, this book is recommended for libraries with collections in holistic medicine. Karen McNally Bensing, Metropolitan General Hospital Lib., Cleveland
