Bio-Touch does not require that you possess special healing abilities, states of mind, religious beliefs or philosophies. There are no masters, gurus, or other authority figures or hierarchy within the organization. And there are no levels of ability. You are effective while performing this touch therapy, whether it’s your first time or you’ve been practicing Bio-Touch for years.
Bio-Touch is a complement to any healthcare program. It can safely be used alone or in conjunction with any standard or alternative medical practice. Bio-Touch is considered to be part of the alternative and complementary healthcare practices that the National Institute of Health has defined as Bio-Field Therapies. These therapies are being researched for effectiveness around the world.
Bio-Touch: Healing With The Power In Our Fingertips
by Debra Schildhouse
The book is about Bio-Touch, Debra’s personal healing journey and Paul Bucky’s (Co-Founder of Bio-Touch) vision.
“… beautifully written and deeply meaningful book about the history and promise of Bio-Touch for personal and global health …”
~Gary E. Schwartz, Ph.D., Professor and Author
Bio-Touch is a touch-healing therapy that anyone can learn to perform effectively. It is taught through the International Foundation of Bio-Magnetics, a federally approved 501(c) 3 educational and charitable foundation. The Foundation offers low-cost classes at the Bio-Touch Center in Tucson, Arizona, and online. In addition, certified practitioners provide healing sessions at the Center on a donation basis to anyone in need of relief from pain, stress, or symptoms of disease. All the certified practitioners on staff are volunteers.
Bio-Touch traces its roots to a mining engineer, Norman Cochran, who lived in Quartzite, Arizona. In 1973, when his friend began having severe contractions in her fourth month of pregnancy, Norman felt compelled to place his fingers on her abdomen. She had suffered two previous miscarriages, but as Norman lightly touched her, her contractions eased. After twenty minutes, she rested comfortably, eventually carrying the healthy fetus to full term. Word of Norman’s healing ability quickly spread. He never questioned how or why he suddenly acquired the knowledge to use his fingers to help people heal.
In 1989, Paul Bucky, a young hippie with debilitating back pain, heard about Norman, who had become the town healer in Mancos, Colorado. Norman was busy giving free healing sessions out of his home. After only two sessions with Norman, Paul’s pain vanished. Having been on a spiritual path all his life, Paul envisioned Bio-Touch spreading relief to many suffering people around the world. Paul asked Norman to teach him how to perform the healing method. Paul learned quickly, then became instrumental in formulating the organization to teach others how to share the technique, now called Bio-Touch.
To teach Bio-Touch, an application of the universal principle “Love thy Neighbor” as a means to alleviate pain and stress, and support good health through all stages of life.
To encourage all people to take responsibility for their own healthcare, empower them to assist others and create a community of people worldwide dedicated to service, self awareness, and recognizing the equality of all humanity—thus forming a chain which shall go on indefinitely.

“Today as I fill the 8th worksheet of this course, just being a part of the foundation makes me smile and fills me with hope. I like knowing I am supported in my journey and that the work I do in turn adds to a larger mission. Also, the dream of setting up a donation based Bio-Touch center here came into being only when I connected with Paul and the foundation.”

GREAT, enlightening and transforming gig… can’t say much more. Except…
My brain was showing clips of “The Dark Crystal”, and this group was made up entirely of “Mystics”… very calming, positive, zen (choose your adjective). They were a sheer delight to service! (I mean that sincerely).
Big SHOUT out to: Angelica’s GREAT staff, Joey & Thad! And the catered food was delicious! Everyone was on the same page…

I have heard of Bio-Touch technique and was offered an opportunity to learn Bio-Touch along with earning CE credits for my massage license.
Bio-Touch is an easy and effective technique to use in and of itself as well as being able to pair it with other treatment modalities that I incorporate with my existing clients. I would also recommend this technique to friend, family and clients who are wanting to learn a technique they can learn to use with others. I appreciate the set points that are available in the manual to incorporate together.Shannon Sullivan
