Healing by Hand presents the first cross-cultural perspective on manual medicine studies—the practice of body therapists that is routinely overlooked by medical practitioners and social scientists. The authors describe how manual medicine is one of the primary providers of "traditional" medicine. It takes numerous forms across the world's communities, and represents beliefs and practices about healing, physical and psychological states, and the relation between culture and health. This volume is a valuable resource for manual practitioners of western medicine, including massage therapists, physical therapists, chiropractors, and osteopaths, as well as those with traditional training. It is especially recommended for courses such as medical anthropology, health and human culture, technology and the developing world, sociology of health, international health, and health care systems.
What if one of the most effective tools you have to restore your health is not surgery or medications, but your own hands? Incredibly, your hands can heal you -- with the "energy medicine" of Pranic Healing. A powerful system that is rapidly increasing in popularity, Pranic Healing works with your own natural, vital energy -- which is also called prana -- to accelerate your body's innate self-healing ability.

Using these unique techniques, you can identify, clear, and purify unhealthy, imbalanced energy and replace it with fresh energy that helps your body heal itself from a wide range of physical, psychological, and emotional symptoms and disorders. A self-healing guide for 24 ailments, including physical and sports injuries, chronic arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, insomnia, hypertension, headaches, backaches, congestion and colds, menstrual cramps, even depression and stress-related disorders, is included. With step-by-step instructions, line drawings, and numerous real-life medical stories, Your Hands Can Heal You demonstrates and explains a revolutionary program that anyone can use to harness the energy of body, mind, and breath to produce health and facilitate repair.

Slumped in the back seat is thirteen-year-old Jason Sutter, unaware he will soon be delivered to his foster family. As Lydia and Frank DeBois open the door to welcome Jason and the social worker, they have no idea of the kind of power they are about to let into their home.

Now victim to his foster parents’ deliberate experiments with his medicine, Jason has already missed two years of school. But even more perplexing are the newfound mental abilities he has discovered over the past few months. It turns out that Jason is a gifted telepath who now must claw his way out of the darkness of mind-numbing drugs to determine how he can use his physical and mental superpowers for the good of the world. As Jason makes friends and discovers enemies, he enters a larger world wielding his psychic powers—completely unaware that he is a medical miracle.
