This book is about Bio-Touch, a simple and gentle touch-healing technique that anyone can learn and use to ease pain, reduce stress, and alleviate disease symptoms. It's also about my personal healing journey that began after I suffered traumatic loss as a teenager. Forty years later, Bio-Touch came into my life after my daughter suffered with viral meningitis, challenging both her and me to the limits of our endurance. After she recovered, I knew I had to find a reliable healing method.
A year before, I'd read a fascinating article describing Bio-Touch and its healing and training center in Tucson, Arizona. I was amazed to learn that it was staffed by volunteer practitioners who offered half-hour long sessions to everyone on a donations-only basis. I couldn't believe that such a place actually existed! Although I hadn't followed up then, now I eagerly signed up to take a training course at the Bio-Touch Center, unaware of the positive impact this training would have on my life.
Admittedly, I was skeptical when I arrived at the center. I had heard that anyone could learn how to perform Bio-Touch and everyone was effective on the very first attempt. That sounded too good to be true, and too simple to work! And, I initially felt out of place among the other students and even the instructors—many of whom I regarded as hippies and "tree-huggers" of various ages—as I overheard their conversations about wisdom journeys, green diets, and chanting sessions. I just sat there thinking about my love of steaks and that I didn't even know what a wisdom journey was. But I relaxed when I heard the uplifting stories told by the three instructors and began to experience Bio-Touch for myself. I quickly realized that there was something to this Bio-Touch, and by the end of the two-day course, I knew I'd found the healing technique I was looking for.
Soon after, I enrolled in the next course, and then the internship program to become a certified practitioner and volunteer staff member at the Bio-Touch Center. I also became friends with many of those "hippies," including Paul Bucky, Founder and Executive Co-Director of the International Foundation of Bio-Magnetics (IFBM), who would soon become my spiritual mentor.
Paul's vision for Bio-Touch was millions of people around the world downloading the training manual, learning how to give Bio-Touch sessions, and relieving the pain and suffering of family and friends in their own homes. Bio-Touch is more than a healing touch. It’s a loving touch that people naturally crave from birth. As Paul puts it, “Bio-Touch is love and love is Bio-Touch. It’s humanity’s birthright to be happy, healthy, and loved!”
One day Paul told me he longed for a book to be written so more people could find out about Bio-Touch. A sudden white-hot jolt hit me, a yearning to be the author of that book. I had no professional writing experience; I wrote stories for my own pleasure. But I knew I had to try.
In the book I describe painful and tragic parts of my past that led the way to my fascination with touch healing. I include basic facts about Bio-Touch, and some of the heartwarming and harrowing experiences I’ve had as a Bio-Touch practitioner. I also write about Paul's lifelong spiritual path, his discovery of Bio-Touch in the 1980s, and how he and the people who make up the Bio-Touch organization have taught others this amazing healing technique for over twenty-five years.
I hope my book will inspire you to explore and embrace this incredible touch-healing technique. Bio-Touch is a loving touch. It is meant to be shared to benefit humanity, so please share it and encourage others to do the same!
