    The history of Healing stretches back for thousands of years. Nowadays most Healers view their work as a natural and purposeful energy based process which, from mostly anecdotal evidence, is believed to help relieve everyday stress, provide a sense of physical and emotional revitalisation and on some occasions bring about a deep sense of peace.

    Each healing session will vary according to the needs of the client, but there are some general themes. The client remains fully clothed and may be seated or lying down. In simple terms, healers work with a conscious intention to help and support. The process focuses on using the hands, placed on or above different areas of the body, often in sequence, in order to facilitate a natural sense of wholeness and well being. Although there are some variations amongst Healers as to the philosophy and belief systems associated with it, most agree that Healing recognises the sanctity within the holistic nature of being.

    Choosing a practitioner

    It is important to choose a qualified healer who has undertaken all the necessary training to understand the theory and practice of professional healing.

    You can check whether a healer is registered with the Complementary & Natural Healthcare Council (CNHC) by searching the register at By choosing healers registered with the CNHC you can be confident that they are properly trained, qualified and insured.


    Spiritual healing, as defined, has been recognised by the General Medical Council and UK government as being a complementary therapy available to the NHS since 1977.

    Spiritual healing - a “flow of 'healing energy' via the healer's hands” - is available for all. There is very little physical contact, no massage, no manipulation, no needles or drugs, it does not hurt and there are no unpleasant side-effects.

    The information provided on\healing0402d.htm (and subsequent/ linked pages) is designed to support, not replace, the relationship that exists between a patient and their physician. It is therefore wise to tell your doctor of any complementary treatment you are contemplating. In fact, in some cases Stan Gerard may be reluctant to start treatment until you have done so.
