Imagine being able to utilize the power of your mind for the purpose of healing with Universal Energy--just by asking. Gentle Energy Touch, a form of energy medicine pioneered by Barbara Savin, does just that by using intention to begin the healing process of an individual. In Gentle Energy Touch readers will learn some of Savin's basic, handson techniques for assisting the body's natural ability to heal itself. The beauty of the Gentle Energy Touch approach is that while it can produce results on its own, it also complements all medical treatments and modalities, often shortening treatment and speeding healing. It is particularly effective for pain management and has also been used successfully to treat depression and anxiety, skin problems, heart disease, even cancer, mitigating the nastiest side effects of conventional treatment and generally helping the body marshal its own resources for getting well.

Gentle Energy Touch includes more than 50 photographs and simple explanations of the chakras and auras and how energy moves--and gets stuck--in the body, and then guides readers through an energy healing session including hands-on positions for different ailments and a closing and grounding at the end.

"During my first healing session with Barbara, I experienced the strangest thing: I felt her hands on or above my head, for instance, but then she would touch my feet and I realized she was nowhere near my head. Whose hands were those?? I told her what I had experienced and she said, "it's not just me doing the healing, I ask for help from the angels." A few weeks after the session, I looked back and realized how much my life had truly improved in the time since that session with Barbara. I was much happier, more in love, more at peace and more creative and energetic than I had been in a very long time. Barbara and the angels made a huge difference in my life!"
— Heather Holley, music producer and songwriter

"Consider the knowledge you are about to acquire a gift. Consider it the first step in your journey of self-discovery, enlightenment and spiritual healing. When we learn how to heal our bodies and our minds, and love others and ourselves, is when we truly grow and mature spiritually. With each step, we get closer to our true goal of reconnecting with the Divine. With love and enlightenment to you all."
— Joan Mazzeo-Little, RN, Gentle Energy Touch Master/Teacher, North Carolina

"At a very stressful time in my life, Barbara was there to offer me energy healing, and I accepted. It helped me clear my mind, relax, gain composure of my emotions, and give me permission to refocus the direction of my life. During one session I felt tingling throughout my whole body, and another time I saw a white light completely engulf me, and then felt a complete calm wash over me. After several sessions, Barbara taught me how to do energy healing on myself. A great benefit of energy healing is that it can be taught to individuals for self-care, thus encouraging them to take responsibility for their own well-being and state of health. What a gift. Energy Healing is a wonderful means to help yourself and others. Barbara, thank you. Lots of love and light."
— Leia Stathakos, MD, Brooklyn, New York

"Barbara's Energy Healing book is extremely informative and helpful on multiple levels. She explains the modality extremely well. The material is educational and user friendly."

"Barbara Savin grew up in a world of energy healing. Her Grandma Jenny was good at it. When her grandmother died, she tried to leave that world behind, but increasingly-challenging health issues kept pushing her back to it. When she finally acquiesced, her life and her career changed. Over the past two decades she has become one of the most notable energy healers in the country. She is convinced that anyone can learn to do what she does. Gentle Energy Touch is the protocol she developed to teach people how to do that. No elaborate lifestyle changes or expensive courses are required. The core of the practice is unblocking and enhancing life force energy. Your customers will find exercises for learning to sense energy, for protecting themselves, and for opening to the flow of healing energy -- as well as suggested hand positions for healing themselves and others. Thorough and well-intentioned, this is a complete, clearly-written manual for anyone interested in energy healing."
— Anna Jedrziewski, Retailing Insight, Feb/March 2016

"Dear Barbara, when I met you, I felt we were on the same plane and was very glad to have found a new friend. I had no idea how good a healer you truly were until we had a session. You read my body and assessed the situations, dental issues, and identified the pain in my neck discussed the issues, and then the pain went away. I felt like I was hypnotized at some points, being aware of everything you were saying. Then you said there was a woman nearby with short brunette hair. It was my dearly departed Mother (d.1982), I could feel her too. That was exciting for me as well. I know that you have helped many others with your talented healing powers and would recommend you to anyone who wants to have sessions or you teaching them energy healing."
— Shelley R. Kramer, Director of the Cancer Prevention Coalition for Los Angeles
