The path to becoming an energy healer

Nurse Pract Forum. 1998 Dec;9(4):209-16.


The 4-year curriculum of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing prepares energy healers to facilitate client healing of the mind, body, and spirit. Energy healing is an integrative therapy dating back 5,000 years. Psychoneuroimmunology and quantum physics are beginning to reveal what Eastern cultures, spiritual leaders, and indigenous peoples have known about healing through the ages. Case studies illustrate energy healing as an integrative modality. Nurse practitioners need to better understand integrative therapeutic modalities such as energy healing, to treat and communicate with clients who may be using these therapies.
