In 1972, a young man named Dean Kraft discovered his ability to heal with his hands. He was mystified by his own power -- but he knew that, whatever its origin, it had to be used to help others. Since that time, he has practiced what is known as "laying on of hands" -- first on family and friends, and later on an expanding client list including artists, medical professionals, and celebrities. His abilities have been tested by scientific experiments at the Lawrence Livermore Laboratory and the Science Unlimited Research Foundation -- and in one fascinating study, in 1975, he was repeatedly able to kill deadly cancer cells, sealed in glass flasks...simply by holding the flasks in his hands.

Now, with explicit instructions and line drawings, he reveals how others can help themselves and their loved ones hands-on healing -- in the hope that suffering will be eased and lives will be renewed, in that remarkable place where science and miracles meet.

This book is the most candid, honest and amazing account of the world's most scientifically and medically documented energy healer.
Many healers on the internet claim to be documented but offer no
substance, no proof to back their claims. Dean Kraft provides the documentation that is undeniable.
Kudos to a man who voluntarily submitted himself to the doctors and scientists to try to understand the incredible healing work he committed himself to for 40 years. I'm glad NBC vetted the book and found it worthy of a television movie with the same title. When Comcast bought NBC they may have lost track of a much watched and enjoyed movie that should be aired regularly for it does as the title claims - it gives people "A Touch of Hope" in a harsh world.
If you haven't read his 2 books, "Portrait of a Psychic Healer" and "A Touch of Hope" you owe it to yourself to do so - you'll never be the same afterward.
Good luck and God bless.
