People have the potential to heal themselves and each other. Dr. Daniel Benor, a wholistic psychiatrist, explains how mind-body and body-mind interactions promote health or cause illness. Clear and concise explanations of a large body of research, clinical examples, and a variety of theory explain healing through complementary/alternative medicine. Dr. Benor reviews research-supporting claims that complementary/alternative therapies and bioenergy therapies are potent and effective treatments.

I am the David Dressler, Registered Massage Therapist, referred to in Dr. Benor's book. I am the originator of Light-Touch Manipulative Technique (subsequently re-named Light-Touch Mobilization Technique) to which he refers.
This is an original joint-mobilization technique that uses a touch so light it barely dents the skin.
In collaboration with the University of Victoria (BC), I designed the first and only double-blind study ever done, as far as I know, in the massage therapy field. It proved that this technique works to realign and restore motion to spinal joints. I published the results of my research in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine (April 1990).
Dr. Benor wrote about my work on his website and has now published his book that mentions it.
For the record, he has completely misinterpreted my work and used it to support his belief in spiritual or energy healing.
My technique has nothing to do with spirituality or energy work. It is a manual therapy using a touch so light it barely dents the skin but used in such a way as to achieve the same results as joint mobilizations requiring much more force. In other words, it is a physical or mechanical therapy, light force though it is, and not a spiritual or energetic therapy.
Because my work is the first double-blind study ever done with a manual therapy as far as I know, it is evidence-based science, not "spiritual" or "energy work."
In point of fact, I asked Dr. Benor to remove reference to my work on his website, stating that he had appropriated it and distorted it for his own purposes. He refused and became rather agitated and upset.
Now I see that, rather than respect my request, he has gone ahead and included reference to my work in his book.
