wonderful essays we receive from our Reiki Home Study Course
Healing touch has been around sine the
beginning of time. How the healing was perceived depended upon the
culture of that time. In primitive times Shamans and Medicine Men
used healing touch but many superstitions surrounded the healings.
In the Christian religions the bible documents many healings
performed by Elijah, Elisha, and Moses. The miracles of Jesus are
also well documented in New Testament. Islam had the great healer
Mohammed. It is believed Ayurvedic medicine derived from ancient
civilization of Mu. Buddhism healing is not just important for
physical body but mental and emotional selves must also be healed.
Healing use first of all be spiritual.
Years ago healing and medicine were a blend of religion and science
not separated as they are today. Today Christians believe God
physically heals through the power of the Holy Spirit. The Catholic
Church believes healing takes place through intercessory prayer. As
religious belief systems become more open minded and science learns
more about quantum physics medicine and healing will come full
circle and mind, body, and spirit will be treated as one.

The use of healing touch has been documented throughout history.
Healing touch can be traced all the way back to ancient Egypt as
well as Greece. It is also documented in ancient Chinese and Indian
culture. One of the most documented sources of healing touch comes
from the Bible. Jesus Christ used healing touch to heal and cure the
sick and even told his disciples “To go forth and heal.”
Through centuries past, healing by touch has served as an important
part of many religions and cultures. I believe that healing touch
should not be used as the only way to heal those who are in need,
but must also incorporate prayer, meditations, diet, and spiritual
well-being. Through this Level 1 class I hope to learn more about
those things. Healing touch is not a religion, but can be used in
any religion to aid in healing and reaching optimal well being
though equilibrium in any person. Sadly, this practice has seemed to
disappear from many religions even though there are documented acts
in the Bible and as well as in other historical religious documents.
One of the main reasons I believe that healing touch is not as
widely used in religion today is because of modern medicine.
Although modern medicine has been a significant development in
today’s society and has saved many lives, it has taken away from the
more traditional means of healing. Many people in today’s society
are so dependent on modern medicine. I do believe that healing touch
can be used along with modern medicine to produce an optimal state
of well being for any patient. Healing touch may also be used alone
to help someone in need. This is how I came to learn about healing
touch. Modern medicine could not help me in the way healing touch
did for a certain ailment. There is something very special, sacred,
and beautiful about healing through touch. I now strongly believe it
not being used enough in today’s society whether it is aiding in
modern medicine, used alone, and especially in religion.
Regarding religion, healing touch has seemed to have disappeared,
simply discarded and often seen as un-needed. Many religious and
spiritual people do not even know about healing through touch.
However, you do see in many churches and religions, the laying of
hands, often by a large group of people to pray for someone in need.
One the other hand, it is seen in many churches and religions to not
be a necessary part of their doctrine and even being seen as
something not from God. This does not make much since to me when I
see pastors and church members laying their hands on someone during
prayer and even given all the examples in the Bible where healing by
touch was performed. There are so many examples of Jesus using
healing through touch throughout the Bible and even Moses, Elisha,
and Elijah used healing touch as a form of healing. This shows me
that there is a significant belief of the laying of hands for
healing in religion, but is an often underused and misunderstood
gift in any religion today.
