42. Therapeutic Touch also called Non-contact Therapeutic Touch (NCTT) is an energy-based healing which involves manipulation of the energy field of a person by placing hands over the head and near the body of the patient without touching the patient. It is based on the idea that each person is made up of complex fields of energy. Practitioners believe they could detect blockages and aberration in the rhythm of the flow of energy in the patient’s energy field which modern technology finds hard to detect. Thus, in the healing process, the healer acts as energy leverage system in unblocking the flow of energy until the immunological system of the patient becomes strong again. Based on the ancient concept of the laying of hands, it partially refers to the existence of a bio-field which when weakened becomes the source of sickness. Practitioners claim that through Therapeutic touch, they could repair the bio-field or help the patients repair his own bio-field and thus effect healing and the reduction of pain and anxiety. They also claim that Therapeutic Touch reduces pain, improves the healing process of the wound, aids in relaxation, and makes the dying process easier.
43. Theta Healing entails setting your brain frequency to “theta state” to be able to behold the Creator. Thus, it focuses on the use of prayer and meditation to reach the “theta brain frequency.” Accordingly, instant physical, emotional, and spiritual healing can be had if a person is able to behold the Creator in the “theta state” of the brain. Theta healing consists of many sessions which vary according to the needs of a person, and what they want to accomplish. Before a practitioner involves himself in the healing process, he is advised to rehydrate himself, because rehydration is vital to muscle testing. Likewise, Theta healing subscribes to the idea of mind over matter. Consequently, the cure for all our diseases, according to theta healing practitioners, lies in the mind. There are five widely known brain wave frequencies: the Delta, Theta, Alpha, Beta, and Gamma frequencies. The Theta brain wave is the ideal frequency for meditation and relaxation. Thus, healing sessions are designed to help a person achieve the Theta frequency using meditation and exercises. Progress in Theta healing includes activation of dormant DNA, and freedom from negative thought patterns and limiting beliefs which, in turn, would lead to physical, emotional and spiritual healing.
44. Tong Ren Therapy is an energy-based distant healing technique which utilizes the “Chi” or life force energy to heal the body. It believes that sickness is basically the byproduct of interruptions and blockages in the smooth flow of life force energy called “chi.” Tong Ren combines the concepts of modern anatomy with the oriental concept of the “chi.” Using an anatomical doll (the energetic representation of the recipient) and a magnetic hammer, the patient continuously tap on certain points on the miniature doll. The continuous tapping on the part is symbolic of the dissolution of blockages leading to total healing. Using the concept of collective consciousness, the healer, Tong Ren, is believed to access this energy source and direct the energy to the patient. Tong Ren Therapy is reputed to heal cancer and all kinds of diseases which are caused by blockages in the flow of energy. Furthermore, Tong Ren Therapy is aimed at achieving the desired harmony and well-being in a person.
