Review for Healing Touch Buddies, Inc, Juno Beach, FL, USA
A one-of-a-kind and exceptional healing benefits for cancer patients. It has become readily accepted today how acupuncture, yoga, meditation, and prayer are all incredibly positive practices for healing both physically, emotionally, and spirituality. Healing Touch Buddies brings to the patient a combination of the essence of all these practices and takes it to a higher level of energy work. Scientist are learning more and more about energy and healing. Dr. Larry Dosey,M.D., and Internist, wrote a book 15 years ago on "The Healing Power of Words." Only one of many books on the subject. Scientist, physicians, and alternative health/healing specialist are learning and teaching how (what is being called...) energy work assist in the healing process for a patient. It exceeds the realm of allopathic or traditional western medicine. I used to be a big skeptic of such practices until I was asked to be the development director of a new start-up non profit organization specializing in alternative medicine and wellness resort. My research revealed that there are a lot of nut cases out there, but that much of the movement in America, or at least new to us, treatments have been around in the world for centuries, practiced and successful in healing. I encourage people to remain a skeptic and to do their own research, don't take just any persons opinion about anything. In my search to learn and understand, I have found many "unusual practices" to be very objectionable. However, as a spiritual person, I have learned to believe in the "power of prayer." I can't explain to you how it works, but I know for a fact that it does. Healing Touch Buddies, through the skilled and soulful hands of Betty Ann Baker (Juno Beach, Florida), has touched my life and assisted in the healing and recovery of a rare and extensive breast cancer of which I was never supposed to have lived. I was diagnosed terminal with less than a year to live, that was almost 8 years ago. I have the greatest oncologist in the world and I have been examined by several specialist, none can believe that I am alive, and not only alive but doing exceptionally well. To look at me you'd never think that I was even sick. What I want to suggest to any one reading this is I am no longer a skeptic, but I have learned that sickness and healing can be illusive and confusing. But sometimes our approach to healing can be just plain common sense. It is all the things we've been taught all along, eat good food, drink water, get rest, have fun and probably most importantly... "We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience." This is something I learned in training to be a Hospice volunteer. I don't know the origin of the quote but it changed my thinking about life, suffering, death and healing. It is my opinion that "Healing Touch Buddies" practices the highest for of healing available to us at this time. I pray God blesses this every individual in this incredible organization.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
absolutely everything. The people associated with HTB are wholesome, loving, skilled people. They create an atmosphere that is calm, comfortable, quiet, and peaceful. Soft lighting, soothing music and a comfortable place let the healing begin.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
HTB has an incredible staff. You will not meet anyone more skilled and caring about you and what you are going through.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
change the world for the better. Healing Touch Buddies gives to each person, individually, what every person innately needs. A human need that unfortunately is not being meet in all too many lives. If energy is love, and love is healing, it is here.
Ways to make it better...
I could have had more meetings. I just can't get enough of the good stuff.
In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...
that not enough people know about them. Once people know who they are and what they do they will receive all the support they need to do their work... I believe that people will be so grateful, and consequently be very generous.
One thing I'd also say is that...
I hope everyone reading this has an opportunity to get to know this organization and be blessed by the experience. The love here is so strong it will change your life.
