What Happens to the Healer

Updated: Aug 26, 2018

Here is a link to an article by Karen O'Dell, MS, HTCP, ICWC.

This paper on Research Gate's public access archive summarizes a number of findings across papers on biofield energy. Karen O'Dell tracks the physical and psychological effects of healing practice for complementary and integrative medicine healers. Though this paper focuses on the science of experience during the practice, it's important to know that each practitioner is having a subjective experience of consciousness, and importantly, of intent during the practice.
