Ich wurde von meiner Freundin Anke Paasch mit Bio-Touch “infiziert”. Anke hatte das Buch von Debra Schildhouse gelesen und war so begeistert, dass wir uns im Oktober 2017 gemeinsam zum Practitioner Kurs anmeldeten. Die Zertifizierung schloss ich im Juni 2018 ab.

Ich und Anke haben es nicht bereut und sind sehr von dieser Heilmethode überzeugt und hoffen, dass wir noch viele Menschen davon begeistern können.

 

I was “infected” by my friend Anke Paasch with bio-touch. Anke had read the book of Debra Schild House and was so enthusiastic that we joined the practitioner course in October 2017. I completed the certification in June 2018.
I and Anke have not regretted it and are very convinced of this healing method and hope that we can still inspire many people.

Ich habe in irgendeiner Zeitung die Werbung für das Buch von Debra Schildhouse gesehen. Mich sprach sofort die Hand mit dem Schmetterling an. Als ich dann noch das Buch gelesen hatte, war mir klar: Das muss ich erlernen.

Ich habe dann noch Barbara Pfau „infiziert„ und Kontakt mit Michaela Haupt aufgenommen. Im Oktober 2017 haben wir den Practitioner Kurs in Edemissen besucht und uns mit voller Begeisterung zur weiteren Zertifizierung angemeldet. Seit Anfang Juni 2018 sind wir nun zertifizierte Bio-Touch Practitioners.

Ich und Barbara haben es nicht bereut und sind sehr von dieser Heilmethode überzeugt und hoffen, dass wir noch viele Menschen davon begeistern können.

I saw in some newspaper the publicity for the book of Debra Schild House. I immediately spoke the hand with the butterfly. When I read the book, I realized that I had to learn.
I then added Barbara Peacock “infected” and contacted Michaela Haupt. In October 2017 we visited the practitioner course in Edemissen and registered with full enthusiasm for further certification. Since the beginning of June 2018 we are now certified Bio-touch practitioners.
I and Barbara have not regretted it and are very convinced of this healing method and hope that we can still inspire many people.

I was skeptical when I heard what people said about Bio-Touch. It’s a healing method that uses two fingers of each hand to touch specific points on the body, easing pain, relieving stress, and enhancing the body’s natural healing ability. I had heard anyone could learn to do it. It wasn’t even necessary to possess healing skills or talent. And apparently, everyone was effective on the very first attempt. That sounded too good to believe, and too simple to work. However, I was desperate to find a healing technique that I could depend on.

I had dabbled in a different kind of hands-on healing technique years before, helping a few of my “patients” feel better. It was thrilling to actually relieve someone’s pain. But my method was unreliable, failing when I needed it the most—to ease my own daughter’s misery. Jill contracted viral meningitis, and the intensity of her head and neck pain was too much for my limited healing abilities. Worse yet, her doctors’ heavy narcotics were as powerless as my hands were.

After many hellish days, and two trips to the emergency room, Jill recovered. She was able to resume her busy life with no ill effects. But I felt raw and shell-shocked from the experience, never wanting to feel that helpless or hopeless again.

A year or so before Jill’s illness, I had read an article about Bio-Touch. Its organization offered reasonably priced training classes at the Bio-Touch Center, which just happened to be located eight miles from my home in Tucson, Arizona. Though the healing method sounded intriguing at the time, I was busy volunteering elsewhere. So, I shelved the classes until sometime in the future when I would be less busy. Boy, was that a lousy decision. Now I couldn’t get to that center fast enough!

Unfortunately, on the first day of class I felt out of place among the other students, and even the instructors—all of whom I regarded as hippies and “tree huggers” of various ages. I could hear them talking about their dream journals, green diets, and spiritual studies. Heck, I didn’t even meditate. What’s more, I worried that the healing technique might turn out to be inappropriately weird. I had read that it was done by touching directly on the skin, so it was necessary for shirts to be removed before the healing session could begin. Being a modest woman, I was prepared to run out of that place the moment I felt naked in either the literal or the figurative sense.

But I relaxed when I heard the uplifting stories told by the three instructors. They explained how the Bio-Touch, through its educational foundation, the International Foundation of Bio-Magnetics, had helped scores of people over the years by offering free healing sessions to anyone who walked through the center’s door. They accepted donations only. Was I hearing things? Could such a place really exist?

When one of the instructors said students didn’t need special knowledge, beliefs, or healing ability to use this technique effectively, I certainly felt qualified. And surprisingly, by the end of the first day of class, I was sure I was in the right place to learn the healing technique I was looking for.

All the practitioners who gave Bio-Touch sessions at their center were volunteers, and I now craved to join their ranks. So I completed the required classes, and an internship program, becoming a certified practitioner five months later. I was elated to be able to touch people, and ease their suffering every time I volunteered there.

But what I hadn’t counted on was how much I learned about myself in the process. I was thrown into challenging situations that I wasn’t prepared to handle. All I wanted to do at that point was run away from the Center and never look back. Instead, with guidance from the Executive Director, Paul Bucky, and some soul-searching, I gritted my teeth and stayed, conquering my deepest aversions and fears in the process.

Years before I met him, Paul’s severe backache had led him to seek relief from the local “healer” in a tiny town in Colorado. The man used Bio-Touch to relieve Paul’s pain completely in two sessions. Paul recognized the untapped potential of Bio-Touch, devoting the rest of his life to volunteering as a practitioner and teaching it to others.

One day he mentioned to me how much he wished someone would write a book about Bio-Touch. He said people all over the world needed to read and learn about the healing technique that anyone could do, anywhere. He envisioned neighbors sharing Bio-Touch inside their homes in remote areas of China or Bangladesh, helping each other feel better.

His words sparked a sudden, overwhelming desire within me to be the author of that book. I didn’t have professional writing experience; I wrote stories as a hobby. But that didn’t seem to matter to the yearning that now burned in my soul. I was hungry to tell what I had seen and learned at the Bio-Touch Center.

I knew I needed to include background from Paul’s life in my book. Besides having lived an extraordinary life, he had expanded Bio-Touch’s reach well beyond the confines of Mancos, Colorado. He had created the foundation that offered classes to anyone who wanted to learn Bio-Touch, because it so perfectly embodied his lifelong creed to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” And, he wouldn’t rest until he shared it with many more people.

I spent hours interviewing him to uncover details about his unconventional life. He had been on a spiritual quest since his youth. In early adulthood, he invited friends to move into his house to embrace communal life. His home soon evolved into a self-sufficient community of residents seeking spiritual enlightenment as well as teaching it to others. Later, he lived in the mountains of Colorado in a one-hundred-year-old stone house without running water, gas, electricity, phone, or mail service. Eschewing modern civilization for four years, he and a select group of people lived as the pioneers had in order to fully concentrate on their spiritual studies.

I was touched, annoyed, amused, and sometimes grossed out by his depictions of past trials and triumphs. But the more I heard, the more I realized our lives had been on parallel trajectories for decades. Without living in close proximity, or even knowing each other, we had gone through the same experiences at the exact same point in time. It was something that neither of us could have imagined, considering our dissimilar backgrounds. Eventually, fate led each of us to the Bio-Touch Center in Tucson, Arizona, culminating in our ever-deepening friendship, as well as a shared vision for the future of the simple, yet powerful healing method called Bio-Touch.

Book Preface – Debra Schildhouse

I found the book by Debra Schildhouse on the new book shelf in the library. I read it in a couple of days (couldn’t put it down). So I looked up Bio-Touch online and saw there was a class.

I appreciate that ours was a small class. I felt a connection with all involved as soon as I walked in the door. The Bio-Touch training was as straight forward as the manual and I feel I can leave and replicate the steps with my family right away. I am looking forward to helping family, friends and workmates as well as spreading the word to take the class themselves.

Bio-Touch: Healing with the Power in our Fingertips by Debra Schildhouse (SelectBooks, Inc., $16.99)

In this book, Tucsonan Debra Schildhouse describes how she went from a big-haired blond with a fondness for cosmetics to a Bio-Touch healer, a follower of one-time-hippie, Paul Bucky, who promotes “Bio-Magnetic Touch Healing”— the practice of relieving pain through light, finger-tip touch. Schildhouse relates Bucky’s story, from a 1970s commune leader to a 21st century alternative medical practitioner, and weaves in her own. After a series of epiphanies, Bucky determined that love and light physical contact could be curative, and he established a healing and teaching practice. In her own story, Schildhouse sought spiritual solace through such practices as astral projection and previous-life regression, but she discovered Bio-Touch after her daughter incurred debilitating pain. She took Bucky’s course to become a certified practitioner, and now writes for the organization. The book includes anecdotes of patient success and a foreword by UA Heath Sciences Professor Gary E. Schwartz, supporting the efficacy of energy healing.

As lifespans increase, medical practices which diagnosis disease and repair injuries may have shortcomings. One of these is residual or reoccurring pain which can trouble both the patient and their family. An event of this type triggered Debra Schildhouse to seek ways to ease the pain of her daughter.
Her path to this knowledge and practice is the core of this story of Bio-Touch. As she explains her path, she also provides the story of the person currently leading and teaching this pain relief method, Paul Bucky. Her presentation of the story shows two different variations of the hero’s path reaching a common goal. Debra has a gift of sharing the stories almost seamlessly across decades of personal history leading to the Bio-Touch organization currently in Tucson.
Debra is not teaching the method or providing its basis which might be desired by those hoping to use it. While she does provide ways to obtain that information, she concentrates on the origin and creation of the Bio-Touch method.
It was Debra’s desire to be able to relieve pain and perhaps cure injury which led her to this method. Her journey has moments of heart breaking sadness and pain interspersed with an almost self-deprecatingly humorous way of describing her training and early work in Bio-Touch.
Her teacher of the method is Paul Bucky. We meet him through a series of interviews that Debra conducts for this book. It is tempting to describe him as one of the last vagabonds of the hippie era, although the described times in Colorado and Hawaii belie that definition. The Colorado era becomes an almost modern pioneering effort creating a community. The Hawaii period seems almost a missionary role. It was interesting to see that he did not claim to invent the method, but rather helped teach what he had learned.
Although those interested in this as a method of pain relief may be the main audience of the book, the dual stories of Schildhouse and Bucky provide an enjoyable experience for a reader of informal and storytelling based biography.

A Charming Story of Life Paths

I loved the book for it’s simplicity, honesty and heartfelt sharing of the life stories of the author and the founder of Bio-Touch Paul Bucky. It is amazing destiny that I chanced upon this book and the website Justtouch.com. Though there were wonderful testimonials on the website about the affects and results of Bio-Touch, I was curious to know more about Bio-Touch, the people behind it and their intentions before I tried it. I am grateful that this book helped to wholeheartedly embrace Bio-Touch. The book shares the wisdom of Paul Bucky but I also found the book humorous as Debra is trying to understand the life of Paul Bucky that is so different from her own. I wish that this beautiful story of Bio- Touch reaches far and wide for the benefit of all.
