Someone is shy

Bruce hasn't completed a profile. Should we look for some other people?

What is HEALING to you?
Just came across a remarkable quote: "No single therapeutic agent can be compared in efficiency with this familiar but perfect tool...the human hand. If half as much research had been expended on the principles governing manual treatment as upon pharmacology, the hand would be esteemed today on a par with drugs in acceptability and power. J. Madison Taylor, M.D. 1908"

What is HEALING to you?
My definition .... "To heal is to unify the physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual selves into an integrated and harmonious whole. To cure is to eliminate a demonstrable disease process. One can be healed without being cured." I am an oncology massage therapist. I have been privileged to walk down the final road with numerous patients who healed as they were dying of their disease. Some heal along the road, some at the last moment, some, never. This healing is primarily characterized by total acceptance and all-encompassing love. It is often manifested by a radiant presence. I have been transformed by what I have witnessed.
