This book has life-af­firm­ing, prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions for care­givers and any­one who wants to feel more bal­anced, whole, and fo­cused.

Gen­tle En­ergy Touch, by Bar­bara E. Savin, of­fers in­struc­tions on uti­liz­ing a pow­er­ful, yet not widely known, path to health.

Gen­tle En­ergy Touch, an en­ergy-based com­ple­men­tary ther­apy known by a va­ri­ety of other names or de­scrip­tions, such as Heal­ing Touch, has been part of Savin’s life for years. It uses in­ten­tion, fo­cused at­ten­tion, and care­fully placed touch to ini­ti­ate the body’s nat­u­ral bal­ances and heal­ing power. Use of this method is said to pro­duce im­me­di­ate calm and com­fort as well as lead to shorter heal­ing times and the ease of chronic symp­toms. Savin’s ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise add cred­i­bil­ity, and the book works to equip others to reap the method’s benefits for them­selves and others.

Savin is true to the be­gin­ner-ori­ented prom­ise of the sub­ti­tle. She bal­ances back­ground in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing what en­ergy is and how it works in the body, with in­struc­tion, in­clud­ing how-tos for self-heal­ing and help­ing others heal, so that read­ers can eas­ily un­der­stand what Gen­tle En­ergy Touch is and be­gin us­ing it im­me­di­ately.

Back­ground chap­ters in­clude guided re­flec­tion through sum­mary and ques­tions, which are es­pe­cially use­ful to those new to the idea of chakras, auras, and en­ergy-based treat­ment modal­i­ties. How-to sec­tions have clear, use­ful pho­tos as well as di­rec­tions for each po­si­tion and an ex­pla­na­tion of its benefits. The benefits listed for self-heal­ing tend to be more med­i­ta­tive and in­tan­gi­ble, such as peace­ful­ness or tran­quil­ity, while the listed benefits for treat­ing others are of­ten more ori­ented to phys­i­cal health, like re­leas­ing shoul­der ten­sion and re­liev­ing headaches. Those who fol­low Savin’s in­struc­tions and prac­tice the tech­niques will move well be­yond the be­gin­ner stage, learn­ing and sens­ing as they go. The text also pro­vides a list of fur­ther resources to keep peo­ple mov­ing for­ward in prac­tic­ing Gen­tle En­ergy Touch.

Savin has a great deal of ex­per­tise and ex­pe­ri­ence with high-pro­file clients, but her ap­proach to begin­ners is wel­com­ing and open. This book has life-af­firm­ing, prac­ti­cal ap­pli­ca­tions for care­givers, nurses, prac­ti­tion­ers of other com­ple­men­tary ther­a­pies, par­ents, peo­ple with stress­ful jobs, and any­one who wants to feel more bal­anced, whole, and fo­cused.

Gen­tle En­ergy Touch is an open door to heal­ing and well-be­ing.
