Healing With Your Hands – A Forgotten Art

April 15, 2016 177 Comments

There is a feeling that comes over us when we’re being cared for. A warmth that floods our senses when someone is devoting their complete attention to our health. A vibration that courses through the body. An inner sigh of relief.

The phenomenon of human touch is at the heart of the healing traditions we work with, yet many take it for granted.  We sometimes construe the word “touch” to be something overtly sexual, but what about the helping and healing kind?

Our hands are capable of so much more than we give them credit for.  Whether you are a Siberian shaman, Reiki healer, or QiGong master, awareness in your palms and fingertips is an unspoken job requirement.

My good friend Dr. Rosita Arvigo, founder of Maya Abdominal Therapy, captures the power of touch perfectly in her book entitled “Sastun,” when she says:

“My hands could see through flesh and tissue. Of this I had no doubt.”

We all have them, most of us two. Knuckled and nailed, lined and printed, our hands are incredibly complex precision instruments.  But through years of repetitive practical use, they have become so fine-tuned and efficient that their intelligence often goes unnoticed.

For me, the curative power of the hands was revealed in the most unlikely of circumstances – during my first Ayahuasca ceremony.

If you haven’t worked with Ayahuasca, the experience can be extremely euphoric, but more often than not, there is far more work than play during this eight-hour spiritual saga. This ancient Amazonian ritual is a marathon of the soul where deep fears and illusions are confronted – and it isn’t always pretty.

We were about an hour into the ceremony and I was struggling, to put it mildly.  I was caught in an existential tailspin that went on for what seemed like an eternity – until a sharp pain in my right foot brought me back into the room for a moment. I had strained it while running, and there was some lingering pain that had not yet abated.

My eyes, which had been shut tight for over an hour, slowly opened into the darkened room.  The world was still loud and dizzying, but I had regained some footing, at least for a second.  I looked down in the direction of the pain and was somewhat shocked to see that my injured foot was glowing a faint blue in the blackness.

Without thinking, I lifted my right hand to my face and somehow “turned it on.” How did I know it was turned on?  Because it began to glow as well – white this time.  With childlike innocence I placed the glowing hand on my throbbing foot and decided to make the pain stop.  It was as simple as that.  The dull ache dissolved within seconds and the foot hasn’t bothered me in the many years since.

“The hand becomes an eye that fuses all five senses and sees things whole.”
~ Lee U-fan, Contemporary Korean Artist

We all have power in our fingertips that is just waiting to be harnessed to aid others.  It seems bizarre to be extolling the importance of such an obvious human action, but I think that many of us have forgotten the magic that exists within our hands.

The human hand is blessed with its own intelligence and familiarity with the subtleties of the body – and this understanding can be used for many purposes.  It can harm, hide, hammer, and hoist. But perhaps most importantly, it can heal.

Whether it’s muscular, skeletal, energetic, or otherwise, knowing when someone is in need of touch is an extremely valuable skill.  And we all are capable of learning it.  Better yet, remembering it.

“You possess the ability to tap a bottomless well of physical and psychic energy…. With it, you can harness the magical power of the universe. Yet most of us unknowingly block the flow of this power, and live out our lives not reaching the potential that we could achieve if we only knew how.”
~ L.V. Carnie, Author of Chi Gung

I encourage you to explore the possibility of allowing your hands to do more than navigate your day-to-day landscape.  Even something as basic as a shoulder rub can be extremely beneficial if given with full presence.  When we let our world go quiet and truly tune in to the health of another, subtle understandings – bits of healing code – become available to us.  This is where the breakthroughs happen.

The concept of touch is a very delicate topic for many, and I hope I have navigated it respectfully and in a manner that serves.

    Thank you for giving me words for service I pray to think, be, say, and do – “healing code”. Your message is well-said, and I am grateful to receive it today…a reminder there are many ways I can promote and inform healing in myself and others.

  3. Deborah says:

    Hi Nick,
    Thank you SO much for this posting. From a young age I had this knowing that our hands could heal and I began to explore that gift. But then I got side tracked with circumstances in life and I never gave it the time that I was drawn to give it. My story of how I was led to the knowledge of this gift was extraordinary but I will not share it here. I can tell you that while I am typing this message the palms of my hands continue to get warm and my finger tips are tingly, it’s a wonderful feeling and just as wonderful to remember that feeling. I want/need to thank you for reminding me of this wonderful gift. I am wondering if you have any insight into how I can get back in touch with this gift and further it ?
    I also want to share with you that I really enjoy receiving your emails and reading your posts, you are a beautiful writer.
    Sincerely,
    Deborah

    • Mary says:

      I could have written exactly what you did Deborah. I would love to know if there is a path to developing or going deeper into this gift. I’ve had it my whole life but only used on family and a few friends.

      • Nada says:

        take classes in shiatsu, reflexology, qigong, deep massage acupressure. simple as that.. do it…let your intuition guide you. nada from brasil

        • Evan Farr says:

          Please also note that there are numerous healing modalities that use touch to harness the universal energy that is all around us. These modalities include Reiki, Quantum Touch, and many others.

    • maria binnie says:

      I found this energy as well coming and also feeling it from my hands particularly my fingertips. I researched it and studied the information I found is worth looking into type in reconnecting healing it’s very real and they have now have scientific data to back up this what we feel and put out is very real. Enjoy.

    • Susan says:

      For more instruction I would recommend the accredited program through Institute for Spiritual Healing and Aromatherapy. Great people and thorough instruction.

  4. Lynda Tomlinson says:

    I have been so blessed for over 30 years to have been a Reiki & Reiki Shamanisn path. I have seen the beautiful healing strength of those that I have worked with. It is never the practitioner that is doing the healing. It is the sacred energy and the sacred being who do the work of healing. The practitioner is merely a channel. With all of my heart I am so grateful to you for sharing Sacred Science. Many Blessings always to each and every one of you.

    I was/am a hospice nurse…I made it my practice to say a prayer before the visit “leave ME in the car” and proceed with the visit…in retrospect there was a question or thought gifted during the visit…a lovely place to be…mj

  8. Bernadette says:

    Your article was very enlightening. The Touch of Healing can be very effective. For years I have practiced the lost art of Jin Shin Jyutsu and experienced great results. It not only gives you insight into yourself, but others as well. We all have this innate ability. Thanks for sharing.

    • Elene Gusch, DOM says:

      Why “lost art”? I learned Jin Shin in the 2000s from someone who was a master of it. To the best of my knowledge, she is still practicing it. It hasn’t gone away.

    Thanks so much for this article. It has come at the perfect time because I have just been diagnosed with a brain tumor. The time has come for me to heal myself! 🙂

      Anne – it is always the perfect time and when I saw your post it reminded me of the book I just read – it could help you on your journey – I will follow My Inspiration to tell you about “Dying To Be Me” by Anita Moorjani. Follow your inspiration on if you want to read it or not 😉

    thank you for sharing. Reminders are so helpful and help one come back into focus.

  11. Rosanne says:

    I have a saying in my studio, “When the hand remembers, the mind is free.” Don’t know who to attribute it to, but it has always rung true for me.

  12. Clare says:

    Thank you Nick, for this loving reminder. I am a massage therapist and have healed with my hands for the past almost twenty years. I am so grateful for having been led to a life path that has allowed such ongoing, daily, and sometimes profound intimacy with people. I too have journeyed with Aya and love your experience of self healing, wonderful! I’m inspired to set a similar intention for my next ceremony.

    Thank you so very much 🙂 Be well

    Excellent commentary. It is so important to recognition how powerful the sense of touch is. In our busy lives many people forget such a simple truth. This is a potent and respectful reminder.

  18. Lynda says:

    Thank you! are hands are so wonderful! I think now I will honor my hands more to day and always.
    Much love and light

    A well intentioned and written article. Thank you for focussing on a very important form of healing .

  21. Irene Rhodes says:

    Thank you for this. It is a timely reminder to me to re-open myself to opportunities to tap in to this valuable gift that I know lies in my hands.

  22. pauline crespin says:

    I know in my heart that I have power in my hands to heal. Not sure what to do about it. Thank you so much for sharing this. Much Love <3

  23. rita says:

    So true. Thank you for the reminder.

  24. Rochelle says:

    Thank you for sharing. I agree with you and I will add that besides the physical touch our energy is working to heal (or help to heal). What I mean is that is the touch itself added of our energy that promotes the benefit, and in some cases the touch is necessary / helpful but in others we can just share / give our energy by using our hands as a “Wi-Fi”, then we are giving our own energy and at same time, depending on our “spiritual development”, we work as a channel to the energy of Nature (Universe, the field, Love,…) flow to through us in benefit of someone else. Use our hands to heal is a blessing and a powerful tool.

    • Carolyn says:

      I totally agree Rochelle…the energy that flows through our fingertips and palms of our hands…is channeled from a higher source(God,The Universe). What ever your beliefs are…my fingertips are tingly as I read and type this message..”.Theraputic Touch” is another reference to the “healing “abilities. I too am researching…always!
      Carolyn

  25. KatName says:

    It is wonderful to ponder, but not all is as it should be, tempering curiosity with responsible caution. Yhere are many beautiful sporits out there, but the sad reality is that there are also the miguided and the nefarious. One must proceed with a healthy dose of caution in these arenas.

    • Elene Gusch, DOM says:

      Doing hands-on healing does not necessarily involve spirit contacts of any kind. There is no need to worry about those nefarious sorts in this context. People often generate fears of such things for no reason. Exercise reasonable caution but do not be fearful.

  26. Sue says:

    So many people miss out on “touch” because of the misinterpretation that has been created around it. Touch speaks to the soul, as do your newsletters. thank you.

  27. Marianne says:

    Great new insight for me! So obvious
    we don’t see it … or use it! Thanks.

  28. Jamie says:

    I have been in touch with my healing center, since very young. I remember the FEELING of being healed. As if very small, in a very large body. I give alot of back massages. People almost always feel like a million bucks when I am done.
    I contribute alot of this to a fever I had as a youngster. Think the fever rerouted my neurological routing. I also experience OBE’s Out of Body Experiences. I can’t not begin to tell u all I have learned from this! I feel blessed for hanging on to this. Lord knows People tried to change me. I just know this is who I’m suppose to be. Gods Love to all ☺

  29. Michelle says:

    Thank you.A lifesaving message to read this morning.

  30. Millie says:

    Yes I am grateful to receive your message of encouragement too. It reminded me about the healing abilities I am aware we all have.
    Thank you

  31. Mary Campbell says:

    I have been exploring the possibilities of healing, I just never knew we were all born with them, so thank you for that knowledge. It seems as though others want to charge a hefty price for people to learn, but once I have the knowledge to be able to heal myself and others I will teach people for a nominal fee or free if I can. I think it’s important. Thank you for staying in touch. I enjoyed reading your article.

  32. Beryl Mallinson says:

    thank you I have just begun to work with healing touch and this article is a confirmation and gives me encouragement for continuing this work.

  35. Dr. Dan says:

    When I was 10, I helped my Great Uncle get rid of a headache. I simple placed my hands on both sides of his head and let the headache leave him. I practice Polarity, Craniosacral Work and am a Reiki Master. Everyone can learn any of these modalities, you just have to apply yourself. I do very
    much encourage people to trust their instincts and innate abilities and Learn a practice. You can help yourself, your friends and family, animals and birds. I once revived a hummingbird that had knocked itself out on a slider window. When he/she came to, it was like holding Light in my hand.

  36. Cheryle Linturn says:

    Thanks for sharing, Nick. I believe in this and understand that if we are present we can achieve success in navigating this empowered universe. We are the vessels and your story was beautiful. I wish you health and happiness.

    Hello Nick,
    Thank you for your emails…you write beautifully. I agree about hands; I massage my hands and feet every morning before rising. I have done 1 ‘aya’ session – would like to do another. We had begun ceremony; suddenly a full size black panther came at me face to face. First reaction – I moved my head and torso back, as I was taken by surprise. Then, I realised he /she was here to protect me – my power animal (since I was a kid, I loved black panthers – wanted one for a pet but wasn’t allowed…so I asked for a cheeta in place of…still wasn’t allowed. My now ex husband put some sort of poison/drug in my water bottle. lucky for me, my intuition told me not to drink much. Via a brazilian toe massage, I did for a friend’s mum, finding a huge block, which I felt through my whole body, I told her she had to stop smoking yesterday…she did and she’s now 88 yrs. Be well…

    5th try. I am a person with no doubt about your claims. My family is a touch psychic, and I have recently been working with a medical intuitive. I really believe that we are “fearfully and wonderfully made”. I have been dx with ALS, the one nobody wants. I live in Seattle. This is not about platitudes, but reality that I write you. Know anybody in the Seattle area with whom I could work? And thanks for the posting and your courage to know…

    Dear Nick,

    Since I first watched the film and now read your blog posts, I have been celebrating the re-emergence of thecae ancient wisdom ways of healing. I have practiced healing ways for more than 30 years and have learned to call the work Metis Medicine Ways, because it is the weaving of ancient tried and true with emerging new forms that serve.

    I know I came here to be a healer for self and others, to help end suffering and to wake people up to who they really are: a spirit having a human experience, with a purpose to fulfill.

    Reading your blog helps to remind me too about my own purpose and I resonate with your intentions.

    Many blessings to you and yours,

    In Lak’esh,

    I went to massage school after so many others told me about the energy they could feel coming from my hands. After training I realized that the true gift I could give others was my full presence during touch, which was truly a gift to me.

  57. Grace says:

    i love yor expression of healing. I always had the inclination to do this as I so enjoy helping others heal with wat God has given us (herbs,essential oils etc.) my problem is quieting my mind for meditation. It is something that I need to get to, thank u

    Thank you for writing this…I am about to endeavor in opening my own business of massage and movement….. and I really needed this from this perpective.
    I have learned to use Eurythmy movements of sound and color through my hands with the founder, and incredible woman, Tanja Baumgartner. We are using it here in the rural areas of the PHilippines. and soon I will be offerring my services of music, Alexander technique, eurythmy and eurythmy massage. If I may ask for your warm wishes and thoughts in this endeavor….i would be most grateful. Thank you again.

  73. Cynthia says:

    I know 1st hand this is true. Laying your hands over and on the body, will find and draw out the heat, healing occurs. It sounds so simple, but with the right intent & spirit it happens.

  74. Pamela says:

    Nick, you have said it well. I have been a massage Practioner for 2 decades and just lately I am being led to trust the power of healing energy from my hands. Along the way of my past I picked up a false belief which caused me to doubt it for so long. Yours is another voice which is waking me up out of that sleep! Thank you so very much for your powerful reminder. With gratitude, Pam

  88. Sue says:

    Years ago I learned a technique called craniostructural therapy from the individual who created it; Dr. Dallas Hancock. I believe that the most effective therapies we can provide are those delivered with our hands, rather than machines.

  89. Jan says:

    Thankyou for this article! I have been using Reiki since 1992.

    Thank you for the reminder that we ALL have this ability and to be more mindful of it in our daily lives.

  91. Tracy says:

    Wow! Nick this is beautifully written and truly inspiring. If only more people knew the potential within their own bodies. Imagine healing rather than stealing and helping rather than taking. What a different world we would live in. Maybe one day! Thank you so much.

  92. Mary says:

    Thank you, I needed that message. I am a Third Degree Reiki Master and my hands are in need of much healing. Where can I get more info on healing of the hands?

  93. Jacek says:

    A good short read on this topic is a book called Touch of Life, by Dr. Fulford. He had the gift and worked it beautifully on patients who were aware of his miraculous touch. http://www.amazon.com/Dr-Fulfords-Touch-Life-Healing/dp/0671556010

    Thank you for this profound reminder

  95. Gail says:

    Thank you for this post! When I was in Massage Therapy School, one of the exercises was to do a massage blindfolded. It was amazing how much I could “see” with just using my sense of touch. Now when I am massaging I will close my eyes and utilize the seeing in my hands and fingertips.

  96. Tania says:

    Thank you for that inspiring Story Nick. I used to be a massage therapist many years ago, and I also did Reiki, but have been away from that for a long time, so good to be reminded about this special power we all have.

  97. Leslie says:

    Thank you for bringing attention to what is so missing in our world and a pathway to world healing. We have the power and means to heal ourselves and each other. It would be wonderful to have this be common knowledge. Your work is invaluable.

    Thank you for your wisdom, for your curiosity, for your sharing caring soul. It has helped me many times. May you continue to be blessed and happy.

  100. Hannah says:

    After a 10-Day silent meditation retreat I visited a friend who’d been in a motorcycle accident the previous year and still suffered with head pain. I simply held my hands to her head for awhile and she was astounded to feel pulsing energy moving the pain out. thank you for reminding me of this. Perhaps the hands are a Chakra in addition to the ones that move up the center of the body.

  101. Jean says:

    Thanks for sharing, to some this has been forgotten. For me its very real. To this day I’ve only seen this been preformed once when I was about 8 I seen a friend of my grandmother do this hand healing to someone I was amazed seeing this. I wish there was more info about this, I would like to learn more about this practice.

    Thank you!!!

  103. Connie says:

    Thank you, I always wonder about the power of healing through touch.

  104. I use my hands everyday to impart Love to all that I touch(I am a Hairstylist) I have been on many journeys I learned not to speak of these experiences just do my work silently. Love reading your articles. Andrea

    • Elizabeth LaDouceur says:

      Andrea, i was just thinking in the last week about the magic touch of hairstylists. They probsbly don’t realize how wonder it feels.

  105. Pat says:

    Thank you for sharing.

  106. Shirley says:

    I love this concept. Where can I learn more?

  107. Dagmar Kugler says:

    Great article, so true. We learn touching this that is yucky as toddlers, we are so filled with false believes, that a lot of us don’t let anyone touch us easily without the yucky feeling. Needless to say I never had a massage, physical therapy on a Lyme disease infected knee was torture, and when I finally saw a spiritual healer, it took a little while of relaxing and trust to get over the discomfort of a stranger touching me in a loving kind healing way. Of course no one teaches the difference between universal love and sexual love in average childhood either.
    But it’s true. Hands can do a lot of things. Now I can feel energies from healing stones and crystals and hope in time will remember a lot more of all the forgotten human skills.

  113. Revati says:

    Thank you Nick. I offer Reiki and often feel the power you speak of. It seems so natural to touch wherever we feel pain. It’s so valuable a reminder you have given us. Thank you again.

  114. Gypsy Lola says:

    Lovely prayer by Sturt Wilde, Blessed are the hands….your words are another reminder and my friends though around my shoulder last night…Very special in deed….

  117. Bradley Hannah says:

    I have discovered that I have the power I tried it on my dog to start with and seemed to work. I have done it to humans and it works for them I have taken pain away. I can feel the power in my hands it is very warn in the right hand and seems to be cool with the left. I would like some words of wisdom how to use and direct my power. It gets stronger.

  118. Dawn says:

    Thank-you ! Thank-you! Thank-ypu! Your newsletters are always insightful.

  119. Anthony says:

    Laying on of hands can be powerful. Jesus Himself said, “You shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.” (Mark 16:18). This past year I decided to take a bold step to believe His words and go out in public to lay hands on the sick and injured and pray for healing in His Name. There are times when I doubt and get nervous, but so far I have seen 2 knee braces removed and the pain leave (one was at the mall), back pain leave instantly at the gas station (the woman said she felt something happen as soon as I placed my hand on her back), and just 2 days ago a man walking through the parking lot was limping due to an achilles injury. After placing may hand on his ankle and praying, he was able to put full weight on it and walk away normally, pain free. Thanks for the blog. God bless everyone.

    • Elizabeth LaDouceur says:

      Anthony, it is good to hear abt your accomplishments with your healing hands. I am always talking about the accomplishment of mine. Yes i think, after reading this, i must pass on my wisdom. The world needs it. People like us should be the norm when we do this important work.

    • Diane Pilato says:

      Blessings to you Anthony! Continue listening to the spirit, and then acting upon it as you are led to do!

  121. Lin says:

    At the age of 52, I retuned to school. A vocational college, and I studied to become a Certified and a Licensed Massage Therapist. I am also a Certified Reiki Master, and the two fit together perfectly. My clients “love my therapy”, and always leave without the pain they came in with! That’s a good thing!

  122. helen says:

    dear Nicky thanks for the reminder…. ages ago i got the insight (in an astrology class, that i was suppoeed to heal with my hands… besides massage, jin shin jyutsu and just touching peiple… ya ya, i need to expand on that – xo 🙂

  123. Sally says:

    Practice the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu and let your healing hands come alive. Thank you Nick!

  124. Elizabeth laDoucuer says:

    Hi Nick, i really enjoyed what you wrote because you sre so right. I have done massage for a very long time and realized this about the hands and this is why my massage work is star quality. I have tried to pass this along to others and am now going to step it up because i may be retiring in 15 years and that comes fast.

  125. Jill says:

    Thank you this was a timely reminder

  126. Janis says:

    The message touches the essence of my spirit and reiterates my own feeling that our hands are not only powerful but are meant to reach out and be a healing, comforting touch for everyone..

  127. Maria says:

    Your article made me think how much I take my hands for granted. Life happens and we can forget. Thank you Nick for your wonderful article – as my hands do the typing – I will take care of them more often now and have more awareness of their importance.

  128. Diane Pilato says:

    Thank you Nick for this great article…I am a masseuse, specializing in trigger point therapy. I have often had amazing experiences through the gift of touching, and knowing, as you mentioned. Often the energy waves cascade down my arms and into my hands when working on a client…and for this I am always grateful. Tapping into the source – the energy which permeates all of us-all living things-is a most wondrous thing!

  129. Elene Gusch, DOM says:

    This is a beautifully written post, but I’m very surprised that you have referred to the subject as “a forgotten art.” Here in New Mexico just about everybody and their cat does some form of hands-on healing. It’s anything but forgotten. I get the impression from the comments, though, that this isn’t so true in some other places.

  130. Taryn says:

    I feel at my core I am a healer. It is my burning spiritual desire. I need, want at teacher. I am ready.

    Recently returned from the Peruvian Amazon after having an experience very similar to yours. Knowing that our hands can heal is a beautiful revelation.

    I remember healing my mother in law from a chronic migrane and it all started with a massage. She was the one to noticed this ability besides I can tell you in advance something that might happen. I am wondering if you have any path or insight to recover or get intouch with this blessed ability.?

  138. Mary says:

    I fully believe in the healing that can come through the touch of hands. Someone said something about nefarious spirits too. I understand that too as I’ve also had that experience through healing touch/prayer. So do discern before engaging I can only emphasize I’ve had much good come to
    me through it as well over the years.

    So TRUE.
    I have always “known’ that I was somewhat unique or different but never had any exposure or experience with Shamanic or Metaphysical teachings. And therefor denied it all for many years, but it keeps knocking on the door and eventually you do manage to embrace your gifts. My hands were my revelation, so to speak. At first I again denied this but time and again I found my hands being able to assist and Heal others. I just had no idea what I was doing. And then I had another revelation, Its NOT about me!! I am simply a vehicle that facilitates the Healing process. And in my case it is my hands. Thank you for a wonderful article.

    I have these hands that are often hot as fire, I’ve read a lot about healing hands. I thought it was rubbish, but it’s not. I had a similar experience had a back ache put my hands there for about 5 minutes and the pain went away and has not returned. That’s been over 1 year ago. It seems that something as extraordinary as this should be put to use. How to you help others? This started before I found out that I was clairvoyant as well as clairsentient. Any suggestions?

    • Cheyn says:

      I have healing hands as well. I’ve only used them to heal others, but recently, they helped me. This is a new experience and I am grateful that they continue to evolve, as does my clairvoyance. It’s amazing what I can see inside the human body!
