Does anyone know the method of healing described here ?

To any who may know the answer...

In Deepak Chopra's book, entitled "How to Know God, The Soul's Journey into the Mystery of Mysteries", Deepak relates the following story of healing experienced by one of his friends who had injured his foot while exercising:

"This was made clear to me by an accident that recently befell a close friend. Unaccustomed to working out at the gym, he strained on one machine and injured his right foot. Over the next few days he began to feel increasing pain whenever he put any weight on that foot, until after a few weeks he could hardly walk a block without having to sit down. On medical examination it was found that he had a common ailment known as planar fascitis, in which the connecting tissue between the heel and the front of the foot have been stretched or torn. The condition can sometimes be improved through specific exercises; severe cases can require surgery, which isn't always successful.
My friend, a stoic type, decided to tough out the pain and made only sporadic attempts to do the required exercises. In time he found it so difficult to walk, however, that in desperation he sought out a Chinese healer. "I went to his office, which was just a small room in the back of a kung fu studio. He was a short man in his fifties who gave no evidence of being mystical or spiritual, or in any way gifted in healing. But his treatment was remarkable," my friend recalls.
"After gently feeling my foot, he stood up and made a few signs in the air behind my spine. He never actually touched me, and when I asked what he was doing, he said simply that he was turning some switches in my energy field. He did this for a minute or so and then asked me to stand up. I did, and there was no sensation of pain, not the slightest. You have to remember that I had limped in, barely able to walk.
"In complete amazement I asked him what he had done. He told me that the body was an image projected by the mind, and in a state of health the mind keeps this image intact and balanced. However, injury and pain can cause us to withdraw our attention from the affected spot. In that case, the body image starts to deteriorate; its energy patterns become impaired,
unhealthy. So the healer restores the correct pattern—this is done instantly, on the spot—after which the patient's own mind takes responsibility for maintaining it that way.
"I stood up on the foot and walked around, just to be sure that I wasn't fooling myself. As I was doing this, the healer told me casually that I could be trained to do the same sort of work. 'Really?' I said. What would it take to be able to accomplish something like this? He answered, 'You only have to discard the belief that it is impossible.'"


Does anyone know the method of healing this practitioner seems to have used, and more importantly, what knowledge base does the statement, "He told me that the body was an image projected by the mind, and in a state of health the mind keeps this image intact and balanced.", come from?

I would like very much to learn more about such knowledge.

Thanks in advance for your learned guidance...

The healer must be a qigong master and he must've used External Qi Healing to treat the patient.

This is true...it may need constant reinforcement over time, though, in order to allow the mind to catch up and truly believe. That is the challenge of every individual...to allow for the possibility and to truly believe that all is ultimately possible

Peace & blessings,

Sounds like the same method a doctor i knew used. He called it Systems Chiropractic but he said qigong was the same thing.
He would barely touch the patient if at all. It feels amazing.

There is an interesting article on this on a website called Waking Times. The article is called, 'Proof that the human body is a projection of consciousness.'
