"Boom! This one rocks. Energy Healing is completely satisfying. It’s at once an easy to understand How-To, and a very personal and relatable story most everyone can resonate with, about how most of us eventually come to energy work. Not by any means least, this book is like a warm, funny, conversation with a friend who’s sharing something cool and helpful. Kris Ferraro’s signature style is intrinsically like that—in this first (of many I am sure) works that speak to the human condition, she finds organic ways to make us smile in self-reflection, understand we’re not alone, and like a flashlight of saving grace, point the way through the dark times. You are guaranteed to enjoy this book, and even if you’re a seasoned energy fan, you’ll find several things you didn’t know. This is the whole package for beginning to understand what energy healing, medicine and psychology are all about, and how to start using them for yourself. Brava!" —Jondi Whitis, MTOT

"I wish I had this book when I was struggling to make sense of this world as a highly sensitive twenty three year old and my life was an unmanageable hot mess! Kris takes concepts that took me years to master and makes them readily accessible. She breaks everything down with clear, concise explanations and then offers simple DOABLE actions so anyone with a few minutes of time and willingness to experiment can try them.
Even after more than three decades exploring many forms of energy healing, I still found valuable gems on nearly every page. Kris breathes new life into some of my go-to techniques providing a fresh perspective for this seasoned professional. Whether you are just considering this book as a possible next step on your path, or are an experienced practitioner, Energy Healing will be a must have resource guide for your library.
Don’t be fooled by the brevity of this volume. Kris delivers information with a precision that distills each topic and tool to its purest form. I have no doubt my copy will become a dog-eared favorite and a frequent gift for my clients and loved ones."
