“If you are curious about where our medical system is headed, this highly engaging book is for you. Jan Hendryx tells his intriguing personal story of how he became passionate about a gentle, natural, and powerful approach to self-healing that uses drugs only when they are appropriate. Since its founding over a hundred and thirty years ago, Osteopathy has had a tradition of using the diagnostic and healing ingredient most wanting in modern medicine–sensitive human touch. I challenge you to put this fascinating book down after you have read the first sentence.”James L. Oschman, Ph.D.
Author, Energy Medicine: The Scientific Basis
“As a teacher at an osteopathic medical school, I have often heard students ask, ‘Isn’t there a good book about the profession for my friends and family? The answer was always no…until now.
Healer’s Touch by Jan Hendryx, DO, is the first readable book on osteopathic medicine. The complex story of this powerful alternative to conventional medical care is rendered undestandable and even enjoyable through its inclusion of people. There’s Duane who has a spiritual awakening during an osteopathic treatment (OMT) session and his chronic back pain disappears. Rose recovers from chronic fatigue by forgiving herself with a little help from OMT, acupuncture, and visualization. The rest of the story of osteopathic medicine, its history, philosophical uniqueness, and holistic practices is told through Barbara, Angela, Mack, Marcia, and the good doctor himself.
Dr. Jan Hendryx arrived in osteopathic medicine as a result of a spiritual journey initially sparked by a childhood family crisis. His love of nature and background in biology make the author an astute observer and a passionate story-teller. Hear the rest of his story about healthcare and healing through osteopathic medicine in Healer’s Touch.”David R. Essig-Beatty, D.O.
