Dorothea Hover-Kramer Dorothea Hover-Kramer, EdD, RN, DCEP (1941 - 2013), was an active practitioner of energy-oriented therapies for more than thirty years. Her background, both in nursing and as a psychotherapist, made her a pioneer in developing creative approaches for healing mind, body, and spirit. She was a founding elder in Healing Touch, an instructor for over a decade, and a conference presenter. In 1999, she cofounded the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology, served as its president, continued on its certification committee, and presented regularly at conferences. Dorothea authored eight additional books about energy therapies, including Second Chance at Your Dream and Healing Touch Guidebook. She was also a performing pianist and visual artist. She lived with her husband on the north Olympic Peninsula in Washington state and, as much as possible, kept up with the families of her three grown children and seven grandchildren.

"Healing Touch is one of the most accepted and widespread energy-healing modalities in the world. With more than a hundred hospitals in the US and Canada using energy medicine as part of their regular care, the number of people who have learned Healing Touch has surpassed 100,000 and several thousand have become certified practitioners. This practical guidebook is the first to give instruction in some of the foundational and easily learned methods in an introductory format. Presented by founding elder Dr. Dorothea Hover-Kramer, Healing Touch takes readers through 18 fundamental exercises for applying this scientifically validated energy medicine for yourself and others. Starting with the theory and research behind it, Dr. Hover-Kramer proceeds to "give us a taste of HT compassion in action," through case studies and practices that address such key arenas as emergencies, family relationships, self-care, life transitions great and small, and perhaps most importantly, the alleviation of physical discomfort and anxiety. Learn the preliminary yet critical steps of Centering and Grounding, Magnetic Passes to restore balance to the human vibrational matrix, Laser and Ultrasound for acute pain relief, special interventions for trauma release, and much more." --New Consciousness Review
