Last January, a friend loaned me a DVD called The Living Matrix. It was about quantum physics and some of the things that science is discovering about healing. One segment featured Dr. Eric Pearl and Reconnective Healing, and frankly, that’s about the only part I can recall.

Reconnective Healing (RH) claims to be something different. It purports to be correlated to a shift that is occurring in human evolution. It claims, that as we are going through this evolutionary shift, new frequencies of light energy are now available to us, and these new frequencies carry new healing information.

As we know, our body cells are constantly communicating and sending information back and forth to each other. For example, when there is an injury, the body sends out an alert (information) and chemicals and assistance (information) are sent back to the injured area. RH says that new healing information is now available on planet Earth. It also states that the healing goes to the person’s highest need. So, if you are looking for some relief from a twisted ankle, you may not get it, but instead you might get an emotional fix, or you might get something corrected that you weren’t aware of, that might later have manifested as a disease.

RH is also different from many of the other healing modalities (Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Aroma Therapy, etc.) in that it doesn’t require any incantations, intentions, tinkly music, calling in white light, stripping of metal, or asking for protection. The client just lies on a massage table for 20 – 30 minutes, the practitioner never touches the body, and you don’t have to think about or believe a thing.

Well, with all of the above and many claims of miraculous healings, I had to check it out. I purchased “The Living Matrix”, read the book “The Reconnection”, had a treatment, took the training program to become certified, and in the last five months, tried it on 18 individuals, over 33 sessions. To date, here are my findings:
• Everyone enjoyed the relaxed, peaceful feeling that the process brought on.
• About half of the 18 reported nothing else that they could identify. This didn’t mean that nothing happened, only that they didn’t notice anything. These were generally younger people.
• Of the other approximate half, four reported feeling a clarity of mind and felt that they had received either a new insight or a resolution to a problem.
• Two people reported a drop in stress level and one felt a state of euphoria. The euphoria lasted for about a day; the reduced stress has endured for both individuals.
• One woman reported that she had had a chronic sinus problem that had lasted for years. She tried everything including a trip to a Californian Naturopathic clinic with no results. The day after her first treatment with me, it vanished. Three months later, it is starting up again, which to me, is reasonable as the cause was never addressed, as far as I know.
• Another individual reported chronic pain in her hips and knees, which vanished the day after her treatment. It’s now five months later and she told me she caught herself running up stairs with no experience of pain.
• Yours truly had a one inch gash in a rotator cuff muscle and calcium deposits in the other shoulder. Raising my arms to put on a coat was difficult and painful. After two treatments, I now have full range of motion in both shoulders. Both were both previously flirting with surgery, but that’s a non-issue today.

To me, these results are both interesting and encouraging. My view is that all of these healing modalities work with some people some of the time, and none of them work with everyone all of the time. That said, I think this one is a cut above many, and that doesn’t take into account the belief of the subject or the talent of the practitioner.
