The term ‘unconventional’ is grossly inadequate for describing this kind of healing activity. Something that has been around for thousands of years can hardly be called ‘unconventional’. The aura of mystery that surrounds this kind of healing is due to a lack of a common frame of reference where what is happening can (1) begin to be understood by the person through whom it is happening and (2) then able to be communicated to others. This kind of healing is as diverse in its application as are the physically oriented therapies. It is now more widely accepted that energy underlies everything. Once it was understood that the cause of people’s problems resided in an energy circumstance, caused by them, and remaining within them, it followed that what had to be looked for was a healing technique of an energy nature that could enter and deal with that circumstance, unblock the impediment and ‘instruct’ it and assist it to return to a more normal state of balance.
